Inspiration for our fireplace mantel

 Since we have had our house put back together I have yet to decorate the new mantel we put in. I love the mantel itself so much, I don't just want to just throw the first thing that I find above/on it. I have really just been at a loss for inspiration. So when I came across this photo I stopped in my tracks! The mantel in this photo below looks extremely like our new one. I am pretty much obsessed with this whole look so it will be serving as my inspiration. 

Let me know what you guys think!

What my bedroom looks like right now.....

Soooo we began the project of installing new hardwoods in the entire downstairs of our house. As a result our bedroom looks like it should be in a furniture store lol. Now try to imagine kids in this torn apart house, not to mention a newly crawling baby! Ah but I know it will be COMPLETELY worth it. I have been wanting these floors since the six years we have been living here. 

Can't wait to show you the finished look!

This, that and Mercy

I don't have to tell you that I love taking pictures of pretty things. So when I got these gorgeous and exceptionally yummy macaroons, I had to snap some quick pics, which somehow led to a full on jewelry shoot with my pretty new dishes from Ikea.

These bracelets below are my brand new Mercy bracelets that I just added to my shop. I love how you can pile them on and it's never too much!

Front Room Update

Yipee you guys I am blogging from my brand new laptop! I have a feeling you are going to be seeing a bit more of me on here now that my computer is much much faster than the one shown in these pictures!

I took these photos about a month ago and I have since finished our bar area, check out the video in which I feature it here
And now I am in the works for another exciting project of which I will hopefully be posting about soon!

Hope you guys liked what I've done here and let me know if you want any deets on where things are from!

My Vanity!

My Vanity is finally done! And you know what I have been thinking? Why have I not done this sooner?!!!! The Vanity table itself is from Ikea and I scored the mirror from Home goods.
 Yours truly, studded vases from my website and yes these are handmade! Love! Find them here
 These clear makeup drawers are from amazon

 The clear organization trays in my drawer are from the container store. Notice Evie's handwritten notes to me?

 And I have two lipstick holders. One from the container store and the other from amazon.

And the stool was from an old diy project that I recovered with a West Elm pillow cover and painted it white : 0
