What I found this week #7

Here we are at the end of another week and back to more fabulous finds.  This was a short week for us with the holiday on Monday, so my shopping was pretty much confined to the online variety.  Lucky for me and for you, there are some amazing new spring finds out there.  Let’s get started.

Discover Morocco with West Elm


And all of these lovelies from Serena and Lily.  If you haven’t checked out this amazing catalog, go online right now and see what you’ve been missing.  From the sweetest children’s rooms to classic grown up spaces with a twist, Serena and Lily has long been one my favorite sources of inspiration.

This photo from Serena and Lily represents my plans for the weekend.  Relax with good friends and family.  Eric’s been gone for two weeks and we are so glad to have him home.  I hope you take time to be with your family and friends this weekend.  Life is so short.  Let’s enjoy every minute of it!

Thanks for all of your support!



Pinterest/Do you really use what you pin?

Do you find yourself pinning tons of beautiful things and then never looking at them again?  Sometimes I do, so I spent some time reviewing my boards the other day and reminding myself of why I pinned those images in the first place.  I found myself spending a lot of time on my DIY board.  Here are a few things that inspired me and made me want to recreate them in my own home.


This console table for my dining room has been on my list for a while.  Since I want a custom size, my dad has graciously offered to build the base for me.  I love the two toned neutral combo on this piece, but my favorite part is the top.  I’d love to use a piece of salvaged marble on the top of my piece.



Staying with the furniture theme,  I have a pair of ottomans that I would love to recover.  Even with my limited sewing skills, I might be able to pull this one off.



This piece of artwork took an insane amount of time, but it was so worth it.  I’m thinking about a slightly different version for my oldest daughter’s room.



Another option for the girl’s rooms.  I think I may let them do this one.  What do you think?



This installation blows me away every time.  Functional and beautiful.  My girls love to draw more than just about anything and they want this badly.  (P.S.  There are pros and cons to letting your children look at Pinterest with you!)



Fabric remnant wrapped shoe box tops.  This one could really be a no cost project.  Love the possibilities.



Finally, these sweet boxes could be used anywhere, but I’m thinking about using them as end of the year teacher gifts.  Fill the top one with a gift card from the class, stack and tie with a white satin ribbon.  Perfect.

What have you pinned lately?  I’d love for you to join me over at Pinterest and I’d love to join you too.  Leave your Pinterest address in the comments and I’ll pop by!
