It has been a whirlwind of a week and I'm looking forward to some rest and relaxation this weekend. I would love to curl up in this bed or the lovely settee at the foot of it. This bedroom is just dreamy. Hope you have a great weekend!!

My Mom, Annie and I have been in Albany, GA the past 2 days packing up my Grandmother's house (my excuse for not posting). We are moving my Grandmother (we call her Lil) to an assisted living home in Atlanta, just minutes from both my house and my parents house. We are so excited that she is going to be so close by! We are now starting the process of packing up her home that she and my Grandfather built 55 years ago. In each drawer, cabinet, or closet we opened there were many treasures to be found and stories to be told.

Doesn't this look like a den straight from the pages of Domino....haha?!? Nope, this is Lil's den that hasn't changed a bit since 1955. This is true vintage! Don't' you love the smiley face pillows?!

How about this one?

Annie has dibs on all the silver! Don't overlook the beautiful orange shag carpet :).

Lil's measuring spoons were the perfect teething toy for Annie.

Here's a great pic of Lil and Annie, when little boo was 8 weeks old. Annie turned 8 months old yesterday (I can't believe it!!) and she is now way too much of a wiggle worm to sit in her Great Grandmother's lap (tear).

Happy Monday

I'm still recovering from the weekend, so today's post is going to be short and sweet. As I was looking through my saved images, I came across this bedroom and it brightened up my day. I absolutely love everything about this image...the mirrored bedside table, upholstered headboard, orange lamp, and dog painting. Everything about this room screams vintage and it's perfection. I hope it brightens up your day too!

Knot again...

Yes, Anthropologie has done it again....they've come out with yet another picture perfect knob! I've always loved Anthro's cabinet hardware, but I think the Coiled Rope Knob might just be my favorite. It's simplicity and texture make it the perfect addition to any cabinet, dresser, or chest.

The Weekend

This past weekend was quite a whirlwind. Friday and Friday night snow was dumping from the sky. We woke up Saturday morning to a beautiful winter wonderland! We were able to enjoy it with Annie for about an hour before we had to jump in the car and head to Charlotte for a friends engagement party (we were supposed to leave Friday, but were delayed due to the snow). We had a blast in Charlotte Saturday, but were on the road again early Sunday morning to get back to spend Valentine's day with our little love bug.

In typical Atlanta fashion the snow had all melted by Sunday and it was in the 50's. Perfect weather for a fun Valentine's day at the park! Annie loved the slide and the swings.

We then headed home to open a few gifts. Annie was very excited. This is her new pose for the camera...don't you love the wink?!
Hope you had a great weekend and have a fabulous week!

Some much needed improvements...

As you can tell The Buzz received a little face lift over the past couple of days!! What do you think about the new header and my new logo....all compliments of Ashly at Kidlark? Ashly is a graphic artist and helped make all my crazy ideas come to fruition. Due to the fact that I'm incredibly computer illiterate, I needed all the help I could get in the graphic design department! THANK YOU ASHLY! You can check out her website/online store here and blog here.

Also, thank you to Jennifer over at Modgirl (one of my new favorite blogs) for recommending Ashly! You can check out her post about Kidlark here.

Let me know what you think!

Small Bathrooms

I LOVED Brooke from Velvet & Linen's recent post, "how to make a small bathroom fell bigger". I am dying to redo the 2 very small bathrooms in our house and Brooke's post really inspired me. Check out the post here. Here are a few more small baths that make me happy....

Laissez Les Bon Temps Roulez

I thought I would celebrate the Saints big victory by posting one of my favorite New Orleans homes featured in House Beautiful designed by Hal Williamson. It's eclectic, bold, romantic, traditional and sooo New Orleans....

This is one of my all time favorite images! I love the blue/green secretary with the blue walls.

I don't know if I'd ever have enough guts to paint my walls this tart green color, but it sure looks awesome in this room. The ikat fabric on the Louis XV chairs really makes a bold statement as well.

another one of my all time romantic!

The dining room just screams New Orleans with the silkscreen of Mahalia Jackson, the client bought at Jazz Fest.
