Bold Stripes

I love the way the blogging world works. One of my favorite design blogs to read is called Censational Girl. Have you heard of it? She has the most creative projects and inspires me daily to decorate with comfortable elegance.

Anyway, today she featured a new-to-me blog called Hi Sugarplum! Cassie did a fantastic job changing her son's room from baby to BIG boy!

I absolutely LOVE the stripes. I will be doing this in B's room. Having a feature wall like this, makes such a bold statement and really gives it a decorators touch.

I got tons of great ideas from her bedroom make-over and thought you might get inspired too. Go over and check out Hi Sugarplum! You will be glad you did!!!

Traci's Patio Reveal

I was so excited to see that Traci from Beneath my Heart posted her patio reveal. She has an outdoor space that will be similar to what we will have at the new house. I was excited to see what she was going to do with her space so I could get some ideas for my future space.

Boy did I get some ideas!!! It is beautiful! She did a fantastic job!

I love that she pulled things from inside her house and placed them here on the patio. It makes it feel like a true extension of her home.

Now I know some things I want to be on the look out for when I am out thrifting at garage sales and goodwill.... Mainly the lanterns, lighting and coffee table.

Hop on over to Beneath my Heart and see the rest of her beautiful patio!

Wicker Chest

I was so excited to find this great heavy duty, wood-lined wicker chest on craigslist! I have been needing something stylish to store blankets in and I think this will be perfect for doing just that!

Milk Crate

I have had this picture saved in my mudrom file for a while long time now. I love the use of these old milk crates.

Well, guess what I got at a garage sale today? A milk crate...for $2.00!

Talk about EXCITED. I couldn't wait to get home and show Scot. He was just as excited as I was about finding it. I love having a husband who enjoys these things too!
