Gorgeous art!

I really do love gorgeous artwork. I feel like everywhere I turn it is just so expensive that I don't even bother but when I found this Etsy shop called Leigh Viner I was soooo excited! She has amazing prints at super duper prices. I love that the prints look like a million bucks without costing you that much.
Aren't these so gorgeous?!!!!





Crazy Pregnancy Energy

This is one of those I need an inspirational post for myself posts just to keep myself going.
I think I have started the phase of my pregnancy when what my sister calls "pregnancy energy" kicks in. This past weekend I used my brothers small pressure washer to wash off our huge RV parking area and our front driveway and because it is a small pressure washer it took me no less than six hours to do! This week I set out a goal to clean out the garage. I have to admit that I am a bit of a clean freak so when I say "clean out" I mean it. I want to go through every tub, move every shelf, wipe everything down and get it all organized. It all started after realizing we were running out of tub space (Evie alone has 8 tubs of old baby clothes) and with the new baby coming we need more storage space. Our house is a really great house except for the fact that the only storage space is in the garage. We cannot put a thing in our attic because it is unusable with no floor and piping in weird places and our closets are tiny. So all that to say, that is why I am on a mad cleaning and organizing spree. My husband still doesn't understand me though, I am pretty sure he thinks I have gone off the deep end. lol I keep telling him "just imagine when we pull into our garage with brand new baby and our garage is sparkling clean". Thanks for putting up with me baby!
We are going to do the majority of the moving of the shelves and the heavy lifting this weekend, but I wanted to get a lot of what I could get done this week so we would have more time for fun this holiday weekend.
Here's a few pics to look back on to make myself feel better when it's all done.

The very full tubs I have saved to do last.

The tubs I have already gone through.

Evie's tubs I have gone through and our outside pantry that I took everything off of to wipe it down and organize


The shelves in the main garage, I can't wait to organize!

Now if only my body will keep up!
Have a great Tuesday my sweet Luvs!

Monday at My Home

I have recently purchased a few pillows for our new sectional but since it still isn't here after THREE months I have been putting the pillows in different places. The only problem is that I am really liking them where they are now! On Friday I got my new snow leopard pillows from High Street Market. I love their size, they fit perfectly in front of my other ikat pillows.
Can't you tell I have been on a bit of a shopping spree? Tee hee! I also ordered Made by Girl's LOVE print in grapefruit, unfortunately my clumsy self somehow got a spot on it so sweet Jen is sending me another one.


What do you think my Luvs?!

Also a big thank you to Megan from A Lived in Home for the kreativ blogger award! Your the best sweetie!

Peonies for Breakfast!

Evelette and I really thought our new bunch of Peonies looked good enough to eat this morning! However then we would have lost our gorgeous centerpiece. ; )

It's my first bunch of peonies of the season, with Oregon's mild spring they came a bit later this year, but they were definitely worth the wait.




I can see how some people make a living taking pictures of flowers. Gorgeous!

Erin Fetherston's New York Apartment

I am absolutely in love with Designer Erin Fetherston's New York apartment. The apartment has gorgeous high ceilings and huge windows that overlook the Hudson. The thing that really gets me is how the apartment and the designer both give off this ethereal vibe. Everything is so soft and pretty, you can definitely see her living in this space.
So pretty!








Hurting my pocket book

Just looking at these gorgeous pieces from Jonathan Adler is making my pocket book!
Gorgeous, no?!!

Monday at My Home

Happy Monday my Luvs!
If you were hoping for a big makeover this Monday, I am sorry to let you down. I get diyed out too! lol

I am just sharing a couple of new things that I have gotten for our home. I found them all at different times and places but I just haven't shown them off yet.

The first are these pillows that I found at Target this past weekend. They were on clearance for only $6.48 each! I love how they play off the stripes of the chairs.


The second is this bust that I found in an antique store. I spent $45 on her but I have never seen a bust so unique and truly stunning.

The third is a pair of pictures that I found at the Goodwill. I found them while digging through a huge stack trying to find the missing pieces to my recent art wall in the dining room. I saw one of them and then later saw the other, realizing that they went together, I was so excited! I wish I knew the history better of these but I know the boy is called "Little boy blue" and they were done by the famous English portrait artist Thomas Gainsborough.


I hope you like my new treasures!
