Absolutely Beautiful Things: Black and Spiro

I've mentioned that I'm turning our downstairs bedroom into an office/family room since no one ever sleeps there except the dog. Since this room is completely from scratch (doesn't even have flooring right now) my options are wide open for what to do, which totally excites and scares me at the same time.

So after months of looking at samples and colors, I've finally picked out the floors and they have been delivered. I'm hoping to install them when we get back from the beach, but that still leaves the walls, furniture, rug....and on and on.

I previously posted my idea of the circus theme/inspiration, and I still think I may do some of this, but I really want lots of color and I want it to be eclectic, but comfortable.

Last night I was Tweeting about my challenges with this room and mentioned how much I love the new Black and Spiro shop that was unveiled recently and received several responses from others that had never seen this blog. So, allow me to introduce you to this fabulous, wonderful blog: Absolutely Beautiful Things. Anna Spiro is a wonderfully talented interior designer in Australia and I love everything about her new shop and her style.

Here are some of my favorite pictures, all sourced from her blog. Check her blog and website out yourself! It's pure happiness!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

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!
