We’re half-way through the One Room Challenge hosted by Calling It Home. Here’s where I’m at:
I’m soon to be an Auntie for the first time. And it may happen on Christmas day. What a joy that would be! I got the luck of the draw getting the only sister-in-law I have. She’s amazing, kind hearted, an incredible teacher to little children, always laughing, an encourager, and a huge go-getter. Basically this little baby is going to have one fabulous mama. So to celebrate her and his growing self, some gals and I threw her a mountain themed baby shower! The decorations were my job and I had just a little bit too much fun getting them all together so I had to share.
Remember back when I drew up curb appeal plans for Lindsay and Lazlo’s house? Here’s a review.
Before: There house was pretty much a clean slate for decoration. It had cute little planter concrete beds and framed windows.
Hey there! So two times a year Calling it Home hosts a grand One Room Challenge (ORC). It’s open to all bloggers and features some stunning designers who take 6 weeks to transform a space of their choice, share their process, cheer one another on, and give a grand reveal at the end. Two years ago I completed my Office Makeover in the ORC and was featured in This Old House magazine! What a hoot!
Do you love the look of all West Elm Mid Century Modern furniture? Um yes please, deliver that to my house and charge the neighbor! I jest. Kinda. Instead of buying this nightstand (left) for $330, why not make this Ikea Tarva Hack (right) for $45?
Eh eh? You know you want it. And it’s easy! Read more after the jump.
I love little baby man clothes. Now that Reuben has outgrown most of the sweetly gifted clothes from the baby showers, I’ve been looking to create a bit of a baby fall/winter “capsule wardrobe” you might call it. Basic colors, fun designs, and nothing that says “handsome like daddy” on it. You understand right? I really just wanted some plain black, white, and gray bodysuits and accessories. But they were SO hard to find. That is until I finally encountered the following items for a great price. Score.
Haha. I’m so punny. Must have had a little extra caffeine in my coffee today. ;)
The other morning I picked up my house for company and I thought, “why not take some pictures of the upstairs to share with my readers?” I don’t generally take pictures of “unfinished” spaces, but we do so much life up here and I haaaave repainted every nook and cranny, that it may as well be “finished” to some extent. What it’s missing is some personal touches with pictures and shelves, but that just hasn’t been on the radar yet.
