Rug Eye Candy

I am totally behind!  I had no idea Amy Butler had rugs too!  I love her fabric.  I am loving this rug and would love to have it find its way into my house.

Color Splash

This reminds me of the color of our kitchen, Sherwin Williams Wheat Grass. However, I am loving it in this hallway. Color adds so much to a house. What new colors have you tried in your house lately?

Fall Wedding-Part II

The bride chose different coordinating colors for bridesmaid dresses. I designed the flower bouquets to blend in with all the different colors.
Reception flowers to compliment the favor bags the bride had made for the guests.
 Whimiscal arrangement of burnt red orange sunflowers added a nice twist to the reception.  The bride chose to move the arrangement from the church to double as more reception flowers.  Nice choice and it saves on $$.

Fall Wedding-Part 1

This was a very close girlfriend of mine who got married in October.  I had so much fun designing these kissing balls for her two flower girls.  Are they not adorable?

Introducing Madelyn

Hi Everyone,
   Mommie life is keeping me pretty busy these past three weeks.  However, I wanted to introduce Madelyn.  She was born Friday, October 29th weighing in at 9lbs and 1.5 ounces.  She was 21 inches long. She had a head full of dark hair.  Hummm, wonder who she gets that from???

Madelyns Nursery Reveal

Finally... The reveal.  We decided to go bright with the Nursery design. We pulled in a color of the bedding that you would not expect for a girls room, aqua blue. We hope she likes it and can be a room that grows with her.
Fabric was used to line the drawers of the dresser for a fun pop of color!
Pottery Barn Coco Bedding. Cute soft rabbit is from Hallmark and a present from Mimi (aka Grandma)
Basket to hold a few of her books, toys, and stuffed animals
Madelyn's dresser which is also doubling as her changing table is over a 100 years old and her great, great grandomothers. Lead free and tested!  Always make sure you test a piece of furniture before refinishing it.  Her dad did a great job refinishing the piece white to match the crib.

Mobile and paintings designed by my sister and inspired by the rug.  The rug was pretty much the inspiration behind the design of the room.
Bright pink polka dot curtains from pottery barn kids
Wooden white rod and finale with wooden drape clips are from Lowe's hardware
Nightlight for room
Nottingham rug from PB Teen
Changing table topper I found at the Pottery Barn outlet in SC for 34 bucks! We decided to do her initial behind the changing table. My husband free handed the letter.  The vintage white frame that surrounds the letter is from Madelyn's great grandfather/grandmother.
Original hardware was changed out with some vintage type knobs from Anthropolgie
Photo storage box found at Homegoods was used to hold diapers, lotion, and wipes on changing table
What girl doesn't love an organizer.  Canvas pink storage organizer added to drawer to hold all the baby socks
Alternating fabric was used in the second drawer. Joann's fabrics, brand Calico
Glider and Ottoman are from Walmart online
That concludes the tour of the Nursery, now we just need her to show up!

Home Made Nursery Mobile Reveal

When I asked my sister if she would help make a mobile for her niece she replied "Sure, what did you have in mind??" We brainstormed some ideas but she was the master mind and over achiever behind this whole project.  Little did she know what she got her self into.  She spent hours and hours on this thing!  I had to promise her I would make her take it to college, ha!  She printed out some templates for the flowers and others she made herself.  She hand cut all the flowers and sewed each petal onto each other as well as a button for the center.   She wanted to make sure there were no choking hazards by having loose materials.   Here is sneek peek as I could not wait any longer to share before we hang it this weekend. (If you guys want further details on how she made it just say so in the comments and we can post on that later).

She then alternated between the flowers these felt balls that were in various colors.  Some had little rhinestones on them and others were just plain felt. Also, mixed up in between were pre-cut leaves (one in a darker green and one in a chartreuse green)

She attached everything by using two wooden wreath circles and wrapped them with polka dot ribbon.  The wider chocolate ribbon comes up from the circles and is topped off at the top with a looped bow in which we will attach onto a hook from the ceiling.

Here is a full lengh picture of most of it. 
Tucker the cat seems to like it and find it interesting. Lets hope the baby loves it as well!  Thanks Ashley, your the best auntie and sister (you were before....) but your right this is just icing on the cake!  Love you!
