Annie turned nine months last Wednesday (yes, this post has been in the works since then)!!

After over an hour long wait at the doctor's office, Annie had a great check-up! She is now 19lbs 12oz and 29" long.

She is all over the place these days...crawling, pulling up on everything, and keeping her mama very busy!!

My favorite find under NINE dollars this month....

This fabulous chevron fabric that I found on Caitlin's blog for only $7.99 a yard!!

For $7.99 a yard, I had to see for myself if this fabric was as good as it looked. IT IS, and I'm going to make 2 pillows for my living room sofa out it and then another smaller pillow out of the beautiful Romo fabric shown above. Do you like??

Make A Wish!

I had an amazing birthday on Sunday, and had so much fun celebrating with family and friends. Thank you to everyone for making the big 27 truly a special one!
Here are a few of my bday wishes...

More time in the day....between being a mom to a 9 month old on the move, pulling fabrics, drafting, blogging, visiting grandparents, and trying to keep a somewhat clean house, I feel like there just isn't enough time in the day!!


This FABULOUS painting from Gregg Irby Fine Art by Katherine McClure. I love this gallery!! It features emerging, contemporary artist and has awesome, yet affordable pieces.

AND I would love for this AWESOME Shoshana tie-dye dress to magically appear in my closet. I can't find it in my size anywhere.
Of course, I can't tell you what I really wished for or else it won't come true :).

Urban Electric

One of my favorite lighting companies, Urban Electric, has opened a store in Atlanta and I am sooo excited!! Actually I am ecstatic, and it's at White Provision on the west side, so shopping will be even more enjoyable. Check out their website hereLink and enjoy. Their fixtures are AMAZING and I can't wait to meet them in person!!!

My favorite kitchen...

This is one of my all time favorite kitchens from Cottage Living. I LOVE the windows above the sink with the sun shinning in (rain, rain go away), the white cabinets, marble counter tops, open shelving, stainless appliances, and blue wicker chairs! This kitchen is perfection and if I remember correctly, I think this home is even in Atlanta. Maybe I'll get to see it in person one day :).
Have a wonderful weekend!!

new purchase

You might remember this knotastic knob from this post a while back. Well, while cruising the mall yesterday (trying to entertain Annie in this rainy weather), I stopped in Anthro and purchased 2 of them, and I must say that I'm very pleased. They gave my beat up console (that I purchased 3 years ago at Ballard Backroom for $175) a pretty little face lift.



They make me very happy! What makes you happy these days?

Spring Green

The weather has been AMAZING in Atlanta the past couple of days and Annie and I have been soaking it up! I love all things green and I find myself craving some green in my life these days. The images below from Coco & Kelly are some of my favorites....

Come play....

I was checking out Atlanta interior designer, Barbara Westbrook's website and came across this
amazing playroom. Does it not make you want to pull out your bucket of chalk and start coloring? I'm soo ready to play!

You can have this super FUN playroom too, all you need is....

Hudson color chalkboard paint

available in all of these FUN colors!!!

Ikea Stockholm Rand Rug

Pottery Barn Kids Carolina Chairs Boom Child's Modern Chair
I had a hard time finding the orange upholstered chairs, but I thought this one was pretty darn cute. The only problem is it's $300....not going to spend that on a mini chair!

Target- floral burst tufted kids chair
Much better price! It received good reviews too.

Now all I need is an extra room in my house that I can transform into a playroom....minor detail.
