my growing obsession for gray stripes has continued with these adorable flats from anthropologie. and i love that they called them tee-shirt skimmers! so clever. and that bow – yes please! i want them. i need them. i have to have them!

happy long weekend to you all! wish me luck in the move and i’ll be back next week!

love love!


oh man, am i sick of packing. i can’t wait to be in the new house and start decorating + organizing!! sorry for the lack of cards/paper posting. i promise i will be in full force after the move! in the meantime, here’s a sneak peak of the front of the house:

love these coral suitcases. {via we heart it}. i wish i could have everything packed up it magically appear in my new place!! 4 more days!!

hi all, sorry i’ve been slacking lately. my mom was in town this past weekend and i’m in the middle of packing up and moving! here are some fun art shots from the past weekend, and if you want to see more, you can head on over to my personal blog:

hopefully, i’ll get back in the next week with fun before & after’s of my own furniture as we move!

the before & after makeovers over on design sponge’s blog. here are some of my past favorite b & a’s that have given me inspiration for my new house!

i love this chair makeover! the red is incredible. i wish i had that for my back patio!

how amazing is this piano color? i love the mustard. i would definitely start taking piano lessons again if i had that piano!

this couch before & after is so awesome. i love that a photographer took an old piece of furniture, saw potential and made it into a statement piece for photo shoots. so clever!

i love this dresser re-do. the updated piece looks like something from anthropologie, but i’m sure was much more inexpensive!

do you have a fun before & after project? send pictures to so we can post it online!

so the national stationery store was this week and i always drool over how many vendors attend this event. maybe next year i can go! here are some pics from other card companie’s booths:

rifle paper co always has such amazing illustrations – and that recipe box is so cute & clever!

is it just me, or is the font in the sapling press logo pretty freaking amazing?

last night – aric & i decided to have a photoshoot in the park by our new house! this mansion sits on the park and is gorgeous. it was a bit rainy & cold, but we managed to get some fun pics on his new camera! enjoy!
