olive etsy shop

isn’t this a sweet shop? whimsy pastels, and dreamy patterns make it feel so warm and inviting.  i love all the beautiful color choices and the pretty places she’s chosen to take her photographs.  visit the olive store for pillows, brooches and home decor, then head over to her blog to find inspiration and crafty tutorials.

Posted by in home decor

hi lovelies!  if not for his incredible decor sense, then for his good lucks- i’m sure you all know who the ever inspiring nate berkus is.  today i’m excited to be joining over ninety other bloggers to celebrate the first ever nate day, organized by the mogg blogg girls!  nate’s moving on from frequenting the oprah show and is debuting his very own nate berkus show on september 13th, 2010 on nbc, wahoo!

our last home provided us with only about 550 square feet living space.  when i saw nate berkus’s new york apartment makeover, it set the entire tone for our little space.  i used so much of his advice and it helped turn our tiny apartment into an amazing space to live in!

my favorite nate berkus advice on small spaces:

- if you have a small space, painting everything white from floor to ceiling will make it look larger, by removing the visual boundaries

- turning a closest into an office is a great space saver

- go up with the furniture to save space and create visual appeal in a tight space

- using glass or acrylic furniture will help the space look larger

- don’t be afraid to use large artwork in a small space

what’s your favorite nate advice? happy nate day!

jill rosenwald pottery

May 25, 2010

Posted by in handmade, home decor

learning to work with ceramics and pottery has long been on my to-do list (along with 100 other ‘do before i die’ crafts).  i even have a lonesome kiln just sitting in my pottery shed (currently turned random-garden-tools shed).  someday when i when i pass a clay supplier, i’ll decide it was fate that brought me there, gather lots of supplies and see what i can do with it.  and when i do, i think jill rosenwald’s style is exactly what my mission would be.  what a modern, breath of fresh air style she brings to pottery!  the colors soothe the soul and i’d be one happy camper eating off one of her plates, sipping tea out that beautiful mug..

May 21, 2010

Posted by in home decor

hello darlings!  i realized the other day how long it had been seen we had talked about home decor, and suddenly missed it!  i’ll try to share more roosts with you from now on. :)  today’s comes from a lovely graphic designer, yvonne huynh.

 

 

 

 

 

doesn’t her home provide a breath of fresh air?  i love the color pallet- muted and natural, with pops of color.  and what gorgeous pillows she has on her couch!  her little pup makes me smile too, the perfect accessory for her home.

you can see all of yvonne’s home in her flickr album, and even more at her beautiful blog where she shares yummy recipes and more design!

p.s. big announcement coming later today!

hi lovebirds! how are you? we’re finally back home! the beach was fantastic and allowed for much rest, relaxation & sunshine. though vacations are always fun, much appreciated and needed, i have to say- i was glad to be back in my own bed, ahhhhhh.

today, i want you to officially meet my husband, david and our pup, toaster! just so happens, yesterday was our 2 year anniversary, as well as toaster’s 2nd birthday! yes, he was born on the day we got married!! so i hope you enjoy some pictures of our life together.

happy anniversary sweetheart!

our mountain wedding on may 16, 2008!

{photo: altmix photography}

sometimes we hike..

and sometimes we bike.

this is the morning after he proposed, fall of 2007.  we were on a north carolina beach under the stars when he popped the question. :)

he’s quite the fly fisherman..

and he’s pretty good at it!

he’s also, quite the goofball. the laughing never ceases in our household, and how lucky i am to have a husband who always keeps me laughing!

he’s also a cyclist.

which is how we get to go on so many road trips!  weekends are consumed with bike races, book readings and travel bags.

and, he’s very good (if i do say so myself!).  that’s him, winning the patriot’s trail road race in rock hill (his 2nd win in 2 days!).

but most of all, he’s my most favorite person in the world!  thank you for being the sweetest, most kind and hilarious person i know.  i love you!

last but not least,

happy birthday toaster!

toaster’s alert, kind and ever so gentle.

how could you say no to that face?

he loves to sleep..

and curl his paw around his nose.

he loves to jump and play..

and especially fetch!

he’s pretty much the coolest dog we’ve ever met!  happy birthday sweet boy!
