brilliant

i pledge to start this myself one day. best idea ever!

feeling blue?

i LOVE blue pallettes in home decor. it’s so calming and relaxing. not to mention SO pretty!

yum blue!

paint it all

so, after seeing examples like these, i not only want to paint ALL of my furniture pretty BRIGHT colors, i want to paint my hardwoods as well!

perfect entryway

need i say more?

this is me

ok, not literally ME, but looks like me…or something i would do. okay, i just REALLY like it!

this lady is great!

a day for a fort

on a rainy day like today, i would love to build a fort.

a great place to take a nap.

project inspiration

any one who has a “to do” list, such as myself, involving redoing/refinishing furniture, this website definitly has project inspiration written ALL over it!

for example…

{before}

{after}

yum…

her work is stunning and makes me want to paint all my furniture in bright bold color!

p.s. lauren and i decided i will paint my headboard a bright laquered red! thanks for your input, ladies!

question

i have a question for those of you who have seen my headboard in my new place. i stated in the post that i was going to paint it white/off-white. the question for you is should i INSTEAD paint it a bright color? perhaps a shade of blue or red? here is a PERFECT example!

let me know. thanks!

p.s. my duvet is interchangable…

and one of these

i have little closet space in my new casa and have a perfect spot in my bedroom for one of these!

isn’t it darling?

i NEED one!

fall obsessions

these obsessions are more specific to my favorite season.

okay, so fall is technically tomorrow, but the weather here in ga has been SO nice, i just couldn’t help myself!

1) colorful autumn trees

the prettiest time of year! mmm…love it!

2) autumn scented candles

my mom has been burning this one-it’s amazing!

i LOVE this one, but then again, i LOVE ALL pumpkin scented candles!

3) apple cider

i couldn’t find a picture of THE BEST cider (from Whole Foods deli), but if you can you MUST try it. it even has little bits o’ apple in it! mmm…

of course, homemade is even better, so here’s a great recipe for some!

{gravenstein apple cider-makes 16 (8 oz) servings}

1 gallon Gravenstein apple juice
1 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 cinnamon sticks, more for garnish
1 tablespoon whole cloves

.combine all ingredients and simmer over low heat for 15 to 20 minutes. remove cinnamon sticks. Ladle into mugs and garnish with fresh cinnamon sticks for each serving.

4) pumpkins

could there be a better symbol for fall?

5) camping-specifically in fall

because we LOVE it SO much, adam and i have made it a tradition to go camping every fall before it gets too cold!

6) brightly colored mums

these are my mum’s mums.

7) jack-o-lanterns (different from pumpkins)

can’t wait to carve, soon!

8 ) autumn breeze

i LOVE getting caught in it!

9) halloween!

i used to love to trick-or-treat, but now i love to hand out candy to trick-or-treaters.

10) thanksgiving!

the BEST food is served during thanksgiving, and if you come to my momma’s house, it’s all HOMEMADE!

yay for fall!
