Blogs I'm loving!

My friends sometimes ask me what my favorite blogs are, and what ones are great to read for decor ideas.  Here are some of my favorites that aren't on my blog roll yet:

Milk and Honey Home (I study their portfolio, I'm weird like that)  once I found their blog, it really helped me to nail down my personal style.


House Tweaking- Dana is inspiring!  She and her husband recently downsized (which I can relate to) and are basically gutting their new house and the afters are fabulous!!! Fresh, clean, a bit modern but still cozy.

Forever Cottage is always a fun one to check in on, her house is cottagey, alive and very much makes you want to have a visit and stay awhile. 

I also love the blog Urban Grace, she doesn't post very much and my personal favorites are the snippets she shares of her own home.  Her kitchen, guest room/den.  Its pretty much amazing!!  She also designed the Coastal Living Ultimate Beach House.


And last but definitely not least, is Emily Henderson's blog.  You may remember that she is a HGTV Design Star winner.  My favorite one for sure!!  Not only is her work awesome, she's a really great writer and her blog will seriously make you crack up!

I would love to know what everyone else is reading these days.  :)

A Few of My Favorite Things

I've always got a few things I'm eyeing for my house or thinking that somebody ought to snatch up.  Here's my latests:

I want 2 of these above my island SO bad, but the shipping cost is killing it for me!

Loving this etsy shop for "bohemianish" pillows, her prices are great too.

Thinking about this stool for the boys to pull up to the coffee table when we play games.  Adds just the right amount of country rustic.

 Ikea's selection of outdoor dining is making me crave summer even more than I already am.  Why do I think I need this ensemble??? 

 What are you loving these days?

We've Moved!!

Its crazy to think all thats happened since I last posted.  We have moved, only 4 blocks away, but still definitely feels like a move.  And have a few projects going on around this new place.  I'm excited to share them with you as we make this house a home!  Might need to order a new cord to plug my camera into the computer though, dang cleaning out/moving, pretty sure I tossed it on accident!
