Updates Around Our House + Other Randoms

Hey guys!  Hope everyone is having a great Thursday.... I am taking it slow today...we have spent the last two weeks working on a huge order for one of our retailers...it's top secret right now...but details will be out shortly about it!  If you have instagram, I would love for you to follow me!  I think it has become my favorite social media tool....I love posting what goes on in our house, life...and most importantly my fur babies...Finnley & Tucker.  Speaking of - Tucker is 1 now ya'll!  Can you believe we made it a full year with a WEIMARANER!?!

Yes, this is Tucker...she's high energy, super snuggly, very smart, and always one step behind me.  She has become a part of our family over the last year too.  It was a rocky start...did I tell you she was a Weimaraner?? :)  If you are new to the breed, you certainly will be worn out by some of their quirks!  But, she has settled down a bit and has made herself welcome in our little home...if you couldn't tell by the picture above :)

I'm sure you all have seen the Sherwin Williams Urbane Bronze craze that has transformed amazing spaces over at Emily's house & Megan's kitchen.  Well it has made it's way into our home too!  I can't wait to do a final reveal as soon as I finish...but here is a sneak peak!  

It used to be a stenciled pattern that I loved for about a year - but it just got a little too trendy for me, and I wanted something a little more classic.  I'd also like to bring in more black and a little less blue to our dining/living area.  To refresh your memory, here is the before right after we moved in last year...

I've also added this amazing lamp from my late grandmother, GB.  She passed away last month and she has some amazing pieces that were passed down to me.  She used to shop at garage sals and estate sales every single weekend...and she honestly has some of the most amazing treasures!  Here are a few items from her:

To say that I'm obsessed with this gold and black pineapple lamp would be an understatement...

This watercolor painting hung in my grandmother's hallway for years.  It is truly beautiful and I love that I will always think of her when I see it.

I am in love with this little lady...Lauren think's she's kind of creepy - but it is such an amazing piece.  She's perched on the wall in our living room looking so nice!

I decided to paint the handles of our entertainment center gold...and it made such a big difference in my opinion.  It's the little changes that get me the most excited I think.

Here is our cozy home today.  

To Do List:

1.  Finish painting dining room
2.  Finish painting entry way chest (it's halfway done...that's my style)
3.  Pick up drapes from cleaners and re-hang
4.  Purchase area rug (LOVE this one)
5.  Recover high back chairs in either a oatmeal linen or light gray linen fabric.

That's all for now!  Tomorrow, I will share some history on how and why I started my company & what I'm most looking forward to this FALL!  

Is it horrible that July isn't even over and all I keep thinking about is Pumpkins?!?


  1. The house is coming together beautifully! Love all of your whimsical touches!
