Here are more images of my old office. It is now a cozy sitting area. I LOVE being in this room.
It took 3 coats of crisp white paint to cover the old dark grayish brownish color. (My lovely husband is the paint champion!) He also created that quirky black piece of art with tape and yarn. The pillow fabric I purchased from a local quilting shop. I decoupaged the top of my side table with magazine pages. I covered the lampshade with a vintage looking fabric. The wood shelve was leftover wood from another project. And don’t forget my $45 settee!!! xx






Here is some fabulous images found on Southern Living’s website.

Southern Living Magazine has gotten a face lift. I was able to preview the new look and it looks great! I wanted to try about every recipe that I saw. Its wonderful to see a mature magazine like Southern Living get a fresh new look.



This next shop is every fashionista’s dream. Neighboring Cassis, Fancy Pants (cute name huh?) is full of great fashion for both men and women. Fancy Pants opened November of 2006. Owners Jaime Petrilli and Courtney Allen are both skilled at what they do and are perfect partners because they are both so passionate about fashion. They are inspired by things that make people feel beautiful while also being comfortable. They strive to bring the most current fashion and trends to the people of Boise.
I first met them thru my cousin who is great friends with them both. (And who is a Fancy Pants addict…Jk….sordof.)
I can tell you that these 2 ladies are as nice as they are talented business women.
