Pick a Color

When we moved into our house, I loved the soft green color of the walls in the family room, and the fact that the previous owner had installed plantation shutters on all of the windows. I decided to take these two elements of the room and create a sort of cottage/coastal feel.

My friend suggested I hire a decorator for some ideas, so I did. In just one hour of consultation I'd decided a direction for my room and got some great advice. The number one thing she told me was to pick an accent color for the room. I had a picture from Coastal Living that had bright oranges, browns, cream and blues, so I decided to pick orange as my accent color. I painted my previously boring brown Pottery Barn coffee table a bright Adobe Orange and picked out fabrics and accent accessories that carried the color throughout the room. Next step for this room is hardwood floors - I can't wait!

If you're looking to update a room in your house, just pick a color and go for it!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
