For this bathroom, my window treatments are officially in the works! So excited. I drove myself a bit nuts but in the end, know its going to be beautiful. I am going for a soft relaxed balloon, lining in with a tiny check/gingham silk blend from Brunschwig which will just peek out from the bottom and layering two trims/tassles which color wise were a great match. All the goodness coming together below........
And for the kitchen fabric, found another great one at Samuel and son
Then speaking of fabrics and trims, here's my latest inspiration for the bench/window seat in back stairhall area...the area we use all the time. The bench cushion is nearly ready and I am going to make it chock full ala Charles Faudree with lots of pretty pillows and think this gold colored simple fabric could be a nice and calm choice for the window treatments finished of course with beautiful blue and gold trim....thoughts?
So pretty to start seeing everything in bloom.....I forgot how much prettier everything looks when it turns green!
Got these two vases unpacked from old house.....not going to keep them here but its fun trying them out in different spots....
Look what I see to the right.......a lilac bush!
The smell was intoxicating.....
Back inside................my lone jars, I am trying to envision the walls with art, mirrors and eventually brackets/wall sconces holding pretty objects........
Changing things up on the family room console..........
More experimenting with blue and white..........changing things out mid stream
And added this pair of flat topped ginger jars for now to my hall console....cannot wait for sconces, art, mirrors,etc....to get put up!
A special thank you to Leslie from the terrific blog, Trover le Soliel for featuring a bunch of goodies she bought from me. I especially love the framed beach print which is part of my canvas art collection...click here to visit her lovely post and the other goodies her great eye chose. Thanks Leslie!
I am still very much "the kid in the candy store" when I get in new boxes but yesterday was as if the whole experience got blown up to epic proportions. I was drowning in boxes but it was still such fun opening up a bunch of gorgeous new things..........and for the many who asked, the brackets are now up on the site under New Additions.
And got some beautiful new blue and white large and very large ginger jars in stock now listed. I seriously want to keep these all to myself.......can never get enough. Its scary but fun.
Yes it does look like a war zone......and that's only a snippet!
A bevy of beauties.....
And I got this gorgeous pair recently, they are quite large and really chunky...am not sure where I will end up permanently putting them but for now they will remain on the dining table.....
More gorgeous pillows getting ready to make their way to their new homes......
Yes I get excited and when I excited about new things...I run on sheer adrenaline. I was up late packing, sorting, sending......lots of new things in the store and check out whats arriving in the next few days, will be up on the site later today or tomorrow.

One last note......I am so not a fan of change, definitely a creature of habit so I was thrown off this morning with the new blogger format. Not liking it. Anyone else feel this way? What gives, why did they have to change something that was working perfectly fine!
