Cute in the Tutu…

I rarely ever do personal posts here on Simply Grove but I just had to share a few images from my daughters first ballet/tap class this past week.  She is the little Blondie who is thoroughly enjoying her time spent at the studio.  What a joy for me it was to watch my little girl [...]

Renee…

Artist, illustrator and designer Renee Anne has done such an amazing job capturing her home in these lovely images.  I am not quite sure what this talented lady cannot do, but I do know that she can take some mean photos.  I really wish that I could see all of her space but this will [...]

Throws and Pillows…

I bought a new pillow and throw from Ikea for my sofa. Do you like? This is where my son and I’s day is being spent today.  Neither of us are feeling to hot.  We are trying to convince my daughter to wait on us but its not working.  Baby dolls are WAY more important.

Look at what I got from a new sponsor, Bella Grano, who was also a Les Bois Tuesday a few weeks back.  I ADORE this brown and robin egg blue airplane pillow.  I am still in the process of finding the perfect home for it.  I also love my new planner and business card holder [...]

Les Bois Tuesday: The Modern Hotel…
