I'm dashing off to work today while thinking about Design Squish:  
The perfect combo of art, work, craft, living!  
Have a great day!

Begin Again

I saw this last week and thought: "Ah! So good!"

Louise's words hit a mark (possibly because I've been feeling way off balance!)
& because I'd really like to "begin again" but I think I'm getting in my own way. (!)  

*Self-Edit*  "Only good lies before me." 

This is so worth repeating & the 12 minutes.

This weekend, I'll be reciting:

"All is well.  Everything is working out for my highest good.   
Out of this situation, only good can come.  I am safe."  
(-Louise Hay)

I hope your day is full of affirmations!

Braided Trim

I want to add some braided trim (a little rustic, not too nautical) to an upholstery project.  I couldn't find what I was looking for online or in the stores (too fancy or too rustic).

Some laundry cord, an hour with Nate Berkus, and here it is:

The plan is to add some fabric protector...outside!  :)

...and add the trim to this bench:
What do you think?  Yay or nay?

Happy Heart Day!

You know what?  You are amazing.

I'm wishing for your day to be full of lots of love for you.
Both given and accepted.
And for you to have some time to enjoy the miracle of who you are.
And to know that You. Are. Wonderful.
Happy "Happy Heart" Day!

Magic Seven

Seven of my favorite things for the week:

1.  My favorite Loft & Cottage Project, and I need to follow the advice on this post and choose a bunch of paint colors already!
2.  This "wallpaper" is *amazing*:

3.  I am lusting for roman shades like these:

4.  ...and printed curtains.  (Having a serious Tom Scheerer Design crush).
Again, with the printed curtains:

5.  How adorable are these two?  
The Girls with Glasses Show

6.   Nicholas Rosaci penny-tiled a table in Dabble Magazine.  Have you penny-tiled anything?

7.  Loving this knot.

(Have a lovely, happy, magic weekend!)

Mustard, Golden, Canary, Sunshine!

 pretty idea!

Even though my projects haven't reached the "Oh, that's great!" status (yet!), I still love thinking about/admiring home decor and planning another project.

Loft & Cottage Blog
Loft and Cottage is one of my favorite "go-to" blogs.  Last week, when I entered the Windows by Melissa  pillow cover giveaway I thought "Oo, I've always loved that fabric!"
Windows by Melissa Pillow covers in DwellStudio Citrine
Was I shocked to find out I won!  Then the geeking-out began, not quite as bad as Kristen Bell's sloth-happiness, but worth review;)

 Blogger Angeline said...

My icy, list-filled day is so much brighter! YOU MADE MY DAY!!! Yee-ha!

...aaand my email...

Wa Ha!  Pinch Me!  Hoor-Ay!
Thank you so much~

(I am completely dorking out right now!  
Can't wait to put these in my Living Room!)

Really, really, "I'm so happy!"

Sunshine & smiles to you!
