House Beautiful and a Great Canvas Deal

I just bought today's SaveMore.com deal for Canvas People and thought you might be interested in it too. Why do you ask? Because I just paid $27 (shipping included) for a 16x20 Custom Photo Canvas!  Go HERE to snag one (or two!) for yourself.  The deal is almost over, so check it out now.

P.S. You'll receive $10 for signing up!  They also have a deal going on an 11x14 canvas print. You can't beat either of these steals!

I'm not sure what picture I want to print on the canvas yet, but that's okay because I have a year to use it!  Even better :)

Okay now that I've shared my steal for the day, let's talk about House Beautiful.  I've been a subscriber to this magazine for some time now, but have recently been debating on canceling my subscription.  I found myself flipping through the entire thing in about 5 minutes with nothing to take away from it.  It seemed that advertisements had become the focus and not good design.  However, when I got the most recent issue, I was greatly surprised by its contents.

It seems the new editor, Newell Turner, really knows his stuff, and the magazine is back to showcasing beautiful houses.  How appropriate :)

The July/August 2011 issue not only featured a home from my roots (Birmingham, AL), but also had several other lovely spaces to feast upon.   Enjoy.

First up is this dreamy little kitchen.  It basically has all of my loves combined into one beautiful space... Open shelving, check.  Painted artwork, check.  White pitchers, check.  White subway tile, check.  Carrera countertops, check.  Seriously, could it be any better?

And look at this charming dining space.  I could make a list about all that I love in the room too (including the dog), but I'll just let you pick out your own favorites this time.

Oh exposed beam ceilings and white walls, how I love thee.  Great job on the design, Chris Barrett.

Hopefully this great deal and these beautiful spaces, have brightened your Monday!

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
