Yesterday and today I have visited a number of blogs with some great eye candy! Let me share my favorites with you.
I want to snuggle up in this room. via emmas design blog
The floor, chest of drawers, chair…..love it all. via Desire to Inspire
These decorative candle sleeves grabbed my eye balls and forced me to stare for like 5 minutes! Exaggeration but honestly love them:) via Design Sponge
The simplicity of this image is so beautiful. via Decor8
Its in the little things. Or in this case the BIG chandelier! Ooo la la. via House of Turquoise
What a fun collection! via Jubella

I am loving the wallpaper and yellow chair. Lovely room. via Ellmania

 

I am not a sewer and I don’t do a whole lot of crafts but one of my goals this year is to do more hands on projects. A craft room would be ideal and an organized craft room would be a must. Here are some rooms that should inspire all of us.
Love the color Pallet. It makes organizing look fun:)

Clean and Simple.
What a great idea to hang ribbons and paper.
This sophisticated office is highly organized and looks like it would be easy to keep clean with all of the specific locations for your stuff.
You can take this anywhere you need it.
This is filed in my favorites for eye candy! Cindy from Quaint Handmade is creatively fabulous!!
Cindy’s sewing area is so “quaint”. What a delightful space.
This would be anyones dream space. I love the mix of styles of furniture. The ribbon on the wall is clever. Lovely:)

Studio : Bookcase by quaint handmade.
This book shelve is put together so well with all of the specific locations for magazines, fabric and books.
Shelves, Magnetic Rack, Ribbon Rack, Tools - North East Corner by Crafty Intentions.
An organized space like this would take a few days to create but it would be so well worth it! You would always know where your items are.
sewing corner 07 by creativelittledaisy.

Perfect idea for an inspiration board/ storage board.

Love the thread wall. Check out the rest of this space here.
A good workspace needs specific locations for sewing, working and organizing.

For Jmae, Sandra Ree, Karen, MaryAnne and Katie.

A few weeks ago Jeanine from AphroChic and I did an over the phone interview for a new series that she is doing on her wonderful blog. It was so fun! Jeanine is such a delightful person and I am so happy to have made a new friend:) Check out the interview here.

Yesterday is behind us and the new week has begun and what a lovely week it is going to be! Here are a few images from Mark Lund (via Ruby) that are quite cheery to begin this new week with.
Remember when I asked you what I should do with the cute paper that I bought and didn’t quite know what to do? Well, you gave me some great ideas.
I loved the mobile idea from Tal. Such a cute way to display all of the patterns. The covered letter idea from Smyrna Townie would look adorable in my playroom. {J} suggested a lovely idea including the instructions to make paper frames. ( I never expect anything less then creatively perfect from {J}.) Priscilla suggested my hubby do something with it to add texture in his art and maybe give it away in the next SG giveaway. (Not a bad idea!) Elizabeth gave me a few splendid ideas including covering drawer fronts, making envelopes and or using them as backdrops for an inspiration board. (I LOVE the drawer idea. The butterflies would look perfect.) I knew that I would get some fab ideas from all of you. Now I really don’t know what to do. I might just have to try all of these ideas!

Happy Thursday Everyone! I just got home from DC last night so I’m trying to get back in the swing of things.
My cousin Tracy and I went shopping while I was there. One of the shops we went to was West Elm in downtown DC. I loved the building its in and the whole setup was very cool. It definitely exceeded my expectations.
Inspiring Indeed
Here I am taking a look thru Kelly Hoppen Home by Kelly Hoppen. A classic:)

I really enjoyed how they displayed there tables.
There was alot to look at. Tons of fun accessories.
I think she is a nice edition to the front display:)

8 years ago I got married in a ridiculously huge tulle dress with a load of sequence and sparkles sewn on the bodice and I made my poor bridesmaids wear equally ridiculous mint green tulle dresses. My bouquet was a gorgeous perfectly round ball of roses and my cake was the exact replica of a Martha Stewart mint green fondant cake with little petite white flowers painted on.
I had 9 bridesmaids. I cried the morning of because my mom called me and told me that my grandpa, whom I was really close with, couldn’t come because he had gotten really sick. My brother wrote a gorgeous song for the ceremony. I had my hair cut short because I loved Dharma’s hair from Dharma and Greg but now when I look at my photos I cringe at the sight.

To be honest I had to rack my brain for all of that information because that day was such a blur but the one thing that I remember is how in love I was and I am. Happy Anniversary Babe!

I’m heading to DC tomorrow so my blogging will be a little sporadic Monday and Tuesday. Depending on how busy my night is tonight I will try and post another one of my Organizing posts. Have a great weekend everyone!!!! (Congrats Derek and Katie! Love you both.)

 

Closets can be our favorite space because they showcase our wardrobe that we are so proud of and those comfy sheets that cost our whole last paycheck. Or closets can become our enemy because we lose control of them and we just cant seem to gain control back. Well, your assignment is to win those spaces back!!! Whether you have a tiny closet a room sized closet, a cabinet for a closet or an armoire for a closet make that closet lovely and functional. It may take a whole day but you will feel so much better.
I found a great article at Real Simple for organizing your closets that you should check out. Its 19 organizing tricks that are sure to work. And whatever trick you choose stay consistent with your choice and make your closets beautiful!! (I will not be charging for this closet pep talk.)
