Playroom Day 3

Today we're finally seeing the fruits of our labor!  We have some stuff up on the walls, the table and chairs put together and in place and the toys put away!  We still need to organize some of the shelves and hang some more artwork that we're waiting to arrive, but hopefully it will be here tomorrow.  Let me walk you through the new details we've added so far...

First up, we have our adorable sparrow hooks on the wall.  These add so much life to the room.  If you're going to use hooks in a playroom, pick a fun shape!  I promise you'll love them.

 Here they are again.  I love how well the green and pink tie into the buckets in the toy box.  We're waiting on a poster to come in to hang over the toy box.

We also hung up this fun little mirror.  It was originally an iron color, but we spray painted it purple to match the curtains and pillows.  We also hung the last of our three collectors shelves underneath it for easy access for Gabbi.

Here is a close-up of the mirror.

Here's the view looking into the room.

This was Gabbi's favorite spot during our table assembly :)

She seemed pretty pleased with her new table and chairs when we were done though.

Here is the new lamp for the side table next to the couch.  I LOVE linen shades.  It brought some much needed texture into the room.  

Here is this side of the room with the new lamp.

Here is another view of the table and chairs area.

Tonight we'll be working on some artwork for a mural and putting together a hydrangea mobile to hang from the ceiling.  We're loving how all of the accessories are bringing the room to life.  Accessories make a room!

New Coffee Table

After more than a year of debate, I've finally decided on and ordered us a new coffee table! As mentioned here , there were several styles I was considering.  However, in the end the tufted ottoman came out on top.  Not only was it versatile, so it can be used for years to come, but it also will be good for when we have kiddos down the road.  I can't tell you how many people I know who have had to either remove their coffee tables for the safety of their kids' noggins or have had to add those tacky corner protectors.  I did not want to invest in a new piece only to have to stow it away down the road.  So this seemed to be the perfect solution.  And thanks to my Joss & Main membership, it turned out to be the perfect price too. I was all set to order a tufted ottoman from Ballard Designs.  I had already received a swatch sample of the fabric I selected and everything.  But a few days later, I got a notification from Joss & Main of a sale event called The Tufted C

Auden's First Birthday-Pumpkins and Pearls

It's only been 6 months now, but better late than never, right? Auden turned one on November 11th and we celebrated at our home with close family and friends.  The theme of the party was pumpkins and pearls.  Pun'kin is one of the nicknames I called her when she was little and pearls bring a girly flair and tied into our reveal party when we found out we were having a girl so it seemed perfect. I had so much fun creating her invitation and all of the party printables.  And for a little extra adornment, the invites were tied with jute twine and placed in scalloped envelope. Invites available for purchase here . Here's the sweet birthday girl in her homemade hat.  I love how the bow on top turned out :)  Her birthday stats poster is now available here . The smash cake table with our go-to milk jars (Starbuck frappuccino glasses) with paper straws.  The tree slab plate they are sitting on was also used at our wedding.  The smash cake was a $10 cake from Public and

Food for Thought

I apologize for my absence these last few days. I started a new job last week as a event planner consultant for the local paper and have been quite busy. Nevertheless, I'm back now. First I'd like to share a yummy recipe I discovered last week. In case you don't know, I am not a big veggie lover. So when I find a good recipe that has veggies in it, I get really excited. Such was the case last week. My hubby and I buy zucchini on almost every grocery visit. However, the only thing we usually put it in is a stir fry recipe we like to make. This is good for me because the zucchini taste is masked by peppers, teriyaki sauce and chicken. I can eat it. Well last Wednesday I wasn't in the mood for stir fry, but I really needed to use my zucchini before it went bad. So I went on a search for a good zucchini recipe. And what should I stumble upon, but zucchini chips. And they were very good! Here is the recipe. Ingredients" 1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs 1/4
