Thank you everyone who entered my Shabby Apple dress Giveaway.
I have to admit I'm a little bit jealous of the winner. I think all of Shabby Apple's dresses are adorable. Right now I'm favoring theirSet Sail line. It's very summery and nautical....which If you haven't noticed I'm a huge fan of.
I sure did, but not to rub it in to anyone who did not.
Trust me I have had my share of lame valentines day, so I completely understand that not every one enjoys it.
But I can say I have had a Great one ever since I met my Jake.
I woke up yesterday to a trail of paper hearts that ran though out the whole house and at the end was a heart shaped box of chocolate, a little red monkey and a M&M candy fan. I Lovemy 3 boys so very much.
I then helped out at Liam's school Valentines party and can I just say, I think Kindergartners are the cutest kids ever!!! and boy they sure talk a lot.
And then I came home and set the table so that Jake and I could have a special dinner together.
I first brought in my red and white table runner that I won from Robin at Happy at home. The white lantern is from Home Goods.
And the Heart shaped slate coasters are from Sam at The Nest, which I also won. I sure love a good giveaway.... which I will be having one of my own soon, so stay tuned.
By the way you can also purchase these coasters at
A little while ago, while my husband, Jake was in Las Vegas for his annual guys weekend, I decided to "Girlify" our living room.
It wasn't really intentional, It just sort of happened on it's own. I first brought in some of Jake's Grandpas paintings and then decided to play up on the color a bit. Yes, I said Color. It's a new thing for me.
And because my Jake is such a good sport and so supportive, he told me it looked nice. I'm sure he also knows that it will be switched around again in a month or two.
What is so funny is that my last post was all about dark and masculine rooms. I was totally inspired by them and wanted to bring that into my home, and here I have done the Complete Opposite.
My Room is now Bright Colorful and kinda Girly!
It sure is nice to come in from the gloomy outdoors to a bright, sunny, happy room.
It feels like a early Spring pre-view.
I've also freshened up my shelves.
I brought in some bottles, twigs and butterflies.
I found this white wire basket at the thrift store recently. I had planed to spray paint it silver, but then decided I liked it white for now. It's Perfect for holding all of my many decorating magazines.
Linking up to this Refreshing Party today over at Jennifer Rizzo. Come see her beautiful living room as well as many others. Just click on the pictures to stop by.
