It's snowing sequins!

Sequins are the only things falling in my neck of the world since it's been 70 degrees outside for the last two days outside.  I hope everyone is enjoying this special holiday season in their pj's while I am stuck at work today.

Santa will be coming down my chimney in under 36 hours, whoot! Let's hope he has some if these sparkly items in his big red sack for me.

I'm Back

Sorry for going a little dark this last week.  Between holiday dinners, shopping, holiday parties, etc I am exhausted.  Below are some funny pictures from a secret santa holiday party we attended at our friends home on Saturday.

Here I am rocking my new gold sparkle dress.  I seem to be having some trouble unwrapping my secret santa gift.

Score!  Holiday brew pack! 
Too bad this was stolen from my soon after.

Victory!  I stole a new bag of brew with the gift swap and from the look
 on my face have had a drink too many!

Anyone out in blog land been to any fun holiday events yet?

In Love!

I am currently in love with this Z Gallerie sconce

How beautiful would a set of these look around the master headboard.  The picture doesn't really show how each piece measures 23.75” wide by 61.5” tall by 5” deep.

Dear Santa, I have been a good girl this year!

Dining Room Update

Sadly I don't think I can convince my hubby to let me buy the bar cart I have been dreaming about until after the holidays.  I decided to make my own little bar cart for now with some items I had laying around the house.

The Sedgewick ~ ahhhh me want so bad!

China cabinet full of random things

Close up shot of random things
Tea pot - drug this out for William & Kate's wedding
Gold candles from Christmas two years ago
Buddha and more Christmas candles from last year

Time to drag out all this stuff and start from scratch

Ahhh much better
I removed a glass shelf and starting pulling some items in to create the mini bar cart

I added back in the silver serving tray, cocktail shaker and decorative plate

Added some old friends to the party

Not to shabby!  I am pretty happy with how my mini bar cart turned out.

Now I just need to figure out what to do with the shelf about it.
Any ideas?

The Big Reveal

As I mentioned in this post, our laundry room received a little TLC over the weekend and we couldn't be more happy with the results.  Saturday bright and early Randy our wallpaper man arrived and got to work transforming our little space.  We chose the Julian pattern by Thibaut for our little makeover.

Laundry room before

Laundry room after!

We are soooooooo happy with the results.  The beautiful blue in the paper against the crisp white cabinets really gives the room the clean pop we were hoping for.  Randy completed this transformation in under four hours. 

To give the room more function we added a shelf over the machines for storage and mounted a bead board drying rack on the wall from Ballard Designs to hang laundry to air dry.

Again before, so sad


It's silly but a little sparkle in our laundry room makes it not so dull to do a load of whites now.

Oh Deer!

I have made it very well know for my love of antlers and my screaming inner voice to hang animal busts all over my house.  My hubby on the other hand would probably wish for that inner voice to be silenced. 

Yesterday I was cruising through the Z Gallerie site and notice some antler bling that made my heart skip a beat.  Hopefully if hubby is reading this he could tell Santa clause these are on my wish list.

omg i love this!

my favorite!

Does anyone else want Santa to bring them bling antlers like me?

Homegoods Binging

Over the long holiday weekend I found myself at Homegoods twice, yes twice!!! Saturday I dropped hubby off for a haircut and oops, parked close to the neighborhood Homegoods and just had to peek in and take a look.  The store was slammed with people crowding each aisle, carts bumping into you but it didn't stop this hungry shopper for uncovering some deals.  I knew I only had a limited time as hubby would be coming soon to look for for me after his haircut.

First deal I found was a matching pair of basket weave candle sconces for only $9.99 a piece.  I have been looking for something like this for our master bathroom.  Score!

 Second deal I found were these beautiful golden leaf candles for only $4.99 for the sconces above.

Third deal was a large Montebello Jar that I plan on putting on my dining room table for only $24.99.  About a year ago I purchased the same glass jar at Z Gallerie for $69.99, ouch!

Shopping cart was loaded up and I was in line to pay when ring ring, hubby was on the phone
 looking for me in the store... *&^%!  Luckily I danced my way through the items that I "needed"
and he agreed they would be nice additions to our home, phew :)

Above is a picture of our master bathroom.  Time to get to hanging those wall sconces near
the hand towel to add the perfect finishing touch the room needs to feel complete.

Ahhhh perfect!

I love the after photos above except for the Montebello jar I overpaid for.

Check me out in the tub in my sock monkey snowflake pajamas, hot!

I must admit lately I have been loving me some Homegoods.  Can't wait to share some additional things I purchased from them and share with you this week.
