Mothers day ideas

It's hard to believe that Mother's day is JUST around the corner! It still feels like we just packed up the Christmas stuff!
But onwards we go and with Mother's day comes wracking our brains for the perfect gift for the awesome women that carried us for 10 months and birthed us and raised us. Gosh a mere gift seems so not enough. But now that I myself am a proud Mama of two I have some pretty good ideas. Okay so these are gifts that I would LOVE!

The first is the new Jimmy Choo book, the perfect addition to any woman's book collection. And really what woman doesn't like to look at gorgeous shoes?

The second are these new baskets from West Elm. They look great in just about any home and are perfect storage for blankies or newspapers.

Third is Kate Spade's Twirl fragrance if only for it's adorable bottle and it happens too smell amazing too!

Last is this Python tray by Zhush. I have been wanting it for a while and you can never have enough trays!


Hope I gave you all some great ideas!

A kitchen to love

This is a remarkable makeover of an old farm house kitchen shared on Apartment Therapy. I love how they gave it a total modern feel but still managed to retain some of it's original rustic charm.

I could have waited to share this cute little transformation for Monday at My Home. But I am just too impatient!

My mom found a pair of these adorable tree trunk side tables at Goodwill for $15. They had weird rectangular black glass tops and the tables themselves were all chipped up.
So with a little love, a few coats of white spray paint and a new round glass top they were completely transformed!

Chic right?



P.S. Notice the cute friendship bracelets I made? : )

Turkish kilim rug on the way!

I am BEYOND excited that this antique Turkish rug is on it's way to our home! I saw one similar on a site for $800 and decided to see what was available on Ebay, where I found this one for $179! What can I say, I love a good bargain!
