Monday at My Home

I have made a realization that a lot of the posts that I do on Mondays are of our home. So I was thinking maybe I could set a day aside each week to show little glimpses of our home. Whether it be new additions, new arrangements, recipes I have tried, etc. I would love to know what you all think about this. If this sounds extremely boring, since you will probably be seeing a lot of the same things in different ways, please let me know!!!

To start off here are some pictures of our bedroom. I have made very minor changes in taking out the feather arrangement and adding my new lamps from Marshalls to our dresser. I have also changed out the pillows on our bed.




I was so delighted when my Mother-in-law came over and made us dinner Friday night and gave me TWELVE of these amazing Anthro goblets as a late brithday present! I was trying to see how I could scrimp and save to get four to six but twelve! So excited to use them for a dinner party or something! I did make some pink lemonade like I said I would and added some fresh basil from our Garden. If you have not tried basil lemonade you are really missing a treat!
I also should mention that napkin is made by Badgley Mischka (another old Marshalls find) and the napkin ring is from Z gallerie.

And here is a shot of our kitchen table. (Sorry nothing super exciting here)

And last but not least... I took some of my birthday money and bought the Owl vase from Z gallerie! I am so so pleased with it and want to get fresh flowers for it soon! Hopefully our garden will produce some!

So what do you think? You can be honest, really!

LOVE your bedroom... I just painted mine a grey color very similar to yours and am going with white and black accents! So fun to get more inspiration from you? Are the white/black throw pillows from IKEA? I saw some very similar ones there today!

I love seeing pictures of your beautiful home and would love to see more of these Monday posts! Your bedroom looks so beautifully decorated. I have a picture in my inspiration folder of a similar polaroid heart display.
