We walked into JoAnn to get some beads for a project I was working on and my husband spotted this great houndstooth suiting material that was 50% off. We got a yard-and-a-half of the red and black to use as our tree skirt. Love it!
I love the set of light-up gifts I got in Canton this year! They look very sweet in the corner of the room by our bookshelf. They will need a new home next year when we have more bookshelves in this room. Maybe on top of one of the shelves.
Our kitchen table got a little dressing up. The placemat is from Anthropologie, the platter is from Target, the candle bowl is from a garage sale (cha ching!) and the ornaments are from Target's after Christmas sale last year.
Now is a good time to not have kids with these beads on the table. It would drive me crazy if they got messed up.

They are the perfect size dollies for my mom's fashion dolls. Each one has a pipe-cleaner skeleton so they can bend easily and sit with their friends.
This is a wreath I made today. I'm ready for October!

The St. Louis Cathedral where the wedding took place.
I took some portraits of her while we waited to walk from the hotel to the church. She wanted to keep busy. =)

We found the fleur de lis brackets at a garage sale for like $10 and they were originally around $60. It was my husband's idea to put the black finnials on the white rod. I love the contrast.
We are going to hang our black letter "B" between the windows. Any suggestions on how to organize all those dvds? I have two shelves in the garage that need to be painted. I can't decide on black v. white or where to put them in our cramped living room.

I am very excited about what we did in the dining room. We had painted two of the walls asparagus green and couldn't decide what to do with this front window wall because it connected all the way up to the second story. There was just no good place to draw a straight line of paint. I had an idea of something I could do to blend the two walls, but I wasn't sure if I was brave enough to try it. We do not have the beige paint the previous owners used to paint the entire house. There is no room for error.Well, I decided I was brave. Here is the wall with my chalk sketch of how to blend the two walls.And here is the completed room with the curtains, table and chairs. You may remember this room from my previous post. I just love the way it turned out and I'm so happy I was brave enough to try it! Our dining table has black legs and we love the way it looks with the traditional brown chairs my mom gave us. I can't wait to get a rug!
Bookshelf-Ikea, Curtains-Pier One, Curtain Rod-Lowes
Breakfast Table Light
Completed Powder Bath
And some non-house projects I've been working on!

Here is a shot of our living room. It's still a work in progress, but at least it finally looks and feels like a place to live! We still want to replace the blue shades with faux wood blinds, buy the chair that matches our love seat, and of course hang up art! We will eventually move the cable around and mount the TV over the fireplace. I love to see the TV from the kitchen.
I can't wait to get the library/piano room set up and posted!!
(Living room furniture and lamp from are from Rooms to Go, rug is from Lowes)

Here is a shot of the green dining room with the sub-floor. I can't wait to see that dark wood in there! Oh, and my newly-improved chandelier. =)

Mine will probably be more 80s neon color splatters like these shorts.

Front Room (Reading/Piano Room)
We also started painting the dining room asparagus green! We love the way the three colors look together. I can't wait to get the furniture in and the art on the walls!
The stairs will eventually have white risers and tread to match the floors. We will stain the banister darker as well
I need to find some fun fabric to make curtains for the green and orange rooms. I would love to find a sale to save some money. Any suggestions? I live in the Dallas area. Something like these from Anthropologie would be great.
