I am easily confused...

A few days back I thanked Ally From The Right Bank for nominating me for a Homie Award.

The problem?



She didn't nominate me, Jessica from Lavender and Lilies did.
What can I say? I am easily confused.



Jessica, I am so sorry for the mix-up.
Please help me make it up to her by stopping by Lavender and Lilies and saying hello and please put in a good word for me!


Do things like this ever happen to you?
P.S. If you are wondering what these pictures have to do with this post, the answer is nothing. I just needed some bright, happy, sunshine yellow in my day.

Knock, Knock, It's STILL Not Nate

Are you still watching The Nate Berkus Show? Do you love it? Well good for you! I STILL can't get it here!! Even after numerous calls to the local T.V. stations and e-mails to the show, nothing. Sometimes, just to torture myself I check out his website to see all the fun I am missing. For example, this great home tour...

Love it!! Such style!!

Before

After
Can you stand it? The best part? Most of it was done on a budget.

Desk and chair were salvaged and given new life.
You've probably already seen this since everyone BUT me seems to watch the show, but if you want to see more go
here.
Fess up, have you been watching?

Then There Were Two...


Last week when I was looking through some older posts at My Interior Life, I came across this table Kathy had spotted at her Habitat store.


I couldn't believe it because just last week I saw....

This at my Habitat store. Same table. And like Kathy it has really grown on me. It is big and white and laminate, ie: easy to clean. It is marked down to $50. If I still had a basement, I would totally buy this...


Surround it with happy, yellow friends and use it as a craft table. Or, if I had a beach house, it could be my dining room table or...oh I don't know, there are lots of things you could do with it. So what do you think? Is it growing on you or are you scared of it?

And a big thank you to Ally, From The Right Bank , for nominating me for a Homie Award!!! You can read more about The Homies here.

Why didn't I think of this??

Thanks to Ann R. for forwarding me some of these pictures...

Adele Enerson's photographs of her adorable daughter, Mila, are brilliant!!

She uses fabrics and other items she has around the house and creates the most wonderful images while Mila sleeps.

Why didn't I think of this?

Probably because while Locke slept I slept.


And Adele Enerson is crazy talented which doesn't hurt.

Maybe I could bribe Locke to lay still with his eyes closed while I took some pictures....


Have you ever seen anything so charming?
Be sure to check out Adele's blog:
Mila's Daydreams.

Rewards of Blogging


Last week Kathy from:



Nominated me for:

The Stylish blogger Award. It made my day! As part of winning this prestigious award you are supposed to list 7 things about yourself. I figured you are probably tired of hearing about me, so I am going to tell you a little bit more about Kathy.

Kathy and I "met" several years ago when, as a reader, she helped me track down some fabric. We e-mailed a little back and forth and once she decided to start a blog I was thrilled. Now we get to visit almost daily through our blogs. Kathy is a design loving mom with a great eye.


She always seems to find the best deals.
(Recent habitat chair purchase $12.50 each!)


She found this table for $60! I want it!! Painted white it would look amazing in my living room.

Lamp and shade together were $8. I told you she has great style!


When she found these chairs ($50 each) I wanted to drive to TN and get them for myself.


(Before)
Right now she is redecorating her daughter's room and taking us along for the transformation.

(During) Love the blues and greens

She may be throwing in some of this and...

Some of this.
Can't wait to see the finished room.
If you live in or near Franklin, TN and need a little help with your home or need someone to find you the perfect vintage table, chairs, lamp etc. call Kathy. Or e-mail her. I think you will be thrilled with the results!!

And be sure to check out My Interior Life.
And thanks again for the award!! xo Sissy

Cool or Clown



Loved these Frye wedges last year but hesitated because of the price and the heel: 4 inches!! Could I teeter through Target and the grocery store in 4 inch heels? They are reduced from $178 to $124. Should I give them a try or would I look like....

This? Thoughts?

Golden Globes-Mark Ruffalo-Domino


Did you watch The Golden Globes? I was trying to finish a good book so only caught bits and pieces of it. I did catch a glimpse of cute Mark Ruffalo and that reminded me of his cute wife Sunshine and that reminded me of their home that I had seen somewhere, sometime....

One quick internet search later and I found it.

Originally in Domino...of course.

The kid's room is the room I remember best...love it!!

So really for me this was the best part of The Golden Globes. What about you? What did you like best?

Really Amazing Makeover

I was blog hopping the other day and ended up at 3rd Avenue Style where I found this amazing Before & After.

Pretty sad...

Pretty amazing.
Is it really the same room? I am blown away.

Question..

These clean modern rooms really appeal to me.
Especially after being snowed in with my children for the past 3 days (scary).

I wish my house was as clean as these homes look.

I used to think my house was messy/dirty because I lived with the 3 little pigs.


Now I think my home may have been built on top of an ancient Indian dust bowl. I was a History major in college. I know about these things.



Is it just me or do you constantly fight with dust?
Do you have to dust,sweep or vacuum everyday?
Or are we an unusually dusty family?
