Last week I had a house full of Ranunculas! These were left over from table arrangements we did for Cirque Le Masque at the Classic Center. Aren't they so bright and cheerful? They are one of my favorite a close 2nd to Peonies. I wish these on the dining room table would've lasted through this weekend for Mother's Day brunch at my house! Unfortunately, I threw out the last of them this morning;( I'll have to start picking, (and posting about) flowers from my own yard to enjoy indoors!

I Spy

I spy some FABULOUS fabric!! When the following 2 pictures from Habitually Chic

were sent to me from a friend I got a little excited! In this post about my rugs, you saw the fabric this headboard is covered in.

Don't you love these dining room chairs? I love this fabric because it's definatly an eye catcher, but also light and airy at the same time. Habitually Chic posted that Laura Ashley makes it and it's also found at Calico Corners. I'm not sure if it's the same print, but it sure looks pretty close! Check out how I used my fabric...I don't think I'll ever get tired of it!

Being the bargain hunter that I am, I'm proud to say I spent very little on the fabric itself. Twice a year in Covington, GA my Mom and I go to this GREAT fabric sale. A lot of it is remnants of designer fabrics, but sometimes you get lucky and find enough yards to do something with it. I thought this fabric was Robert Allen, but I may be mistaken because I've never been able to find it on his website. Stay tuned for a future post just of my fabric finds...

Happy Spring!!

I kept Posy Ann Saturday afternoon, so of course we had a photo shoot!
She and her babydoll Hugums LOVED playing in the daffodils!

She loves being outside and flowers...I think she was named appropriately;)

Posy Ann also loves to nap in grown up beds! Being so cute can be tough on a little girl!

Okay, here is my excuse for not posting in forever...

What do you think? I turned this old egg basket into a chandelier in my kitchen! I know it's a little funky, but it's been quite the conversation piece. It wasn't as involved as you might think, but like every other home project it took 3 trips to Lowe's before it was complete. The quirkiness of it has really grown on me and I really love the design it makes on the ceiling!! I've got another one just like this in yellow I'm currently using to hold towels in my bathroom. If I ever get my act together I'm going to make a chandelier out of it too. And when that happens I'll have an Etsy shop with lots of other vintage homemade goodies for sale! Now, onto getting those eyesore cabinets painted!

Smart and Small

My kitchen, much like this one featured in House Beautiful, is small...and I'd like to think it's Smart as well!
I like the look of shelving instead of cabinets, but then again I know how unorganized my cabinets can become and love that you never know it unless you open them up! The color of the lower cabinets is great and just blends right in. I'm getting ready to paint my own. I'm leaning toward a gray/blue color with something similar to this white semitransparant glaze on them.

I'm in LOVE with this small farmhouse sink! And the faucet too! In my next home I will have a farmhouse sink;)

As small as this kitchen may be they still found room for great accesories, like this woven tray to organize everyday items. It's got me thinking of a place to put my bamboo tray on my counter at home! Adding your own unique touches can make any room homey and inviting.

On the hunt...

I want to refinish an old 4 drawer chest, but I need some inspiration with some new drawer pulls...

It is currently an ugly green color and I want to paint it white and rough up the edges a bit. This pink would look pretty...maybe?

I really like this one too of twisted vines...

And, really love this one! The chest is in my bedroom now...mainly because it won't fit anywhere else. But, this pull would go with everything in my bedroom or out. I found all of these at Anthropologie. They seem to be the only place with cute/different kinds of drawer you have any suggestions of other place I can look??
