You will be mine ...

bird cushion in blue by roddy & ginger

I just ordered fabric from Tonic Living to recover two chairs that I bought of craigslist (6 months ago) and I think Mr. birdie would look great with it.

Christmas already ...

I can't believe that it is already November. Where did the year go! This means it's almost December - which means I need to get a move on with my Christmas cards. Holy Moly!!!
This year I am going to send out a photo card with our "child" all dressed up. Bo is super excited about his holiday sweater (sarcasm). So I spent the evening looking through the MANY sites with holiday photo cards. I love so many of the ones on tiny prints that I just posted a few of my favorites. I will post the "real one" closer to Christmas.

Friday goodies ...

These are all the amazing work of Lisa Leonard. Check out her site here.

Also jump over to Centsational Girl and check out her awesome giveaway she is having right now. The winner of the giveaway wins a $100 dollar gift certificate to shop Lisa's store. So you could buy any of the above and more for just about anyone. (or just yourself!)

Branches ...

How great would these look in a nursery!
Eye candy to show off the family tree from my tree & me. (spotted on Design*Sponge)

I love tracing my family tree. I am so intriged to see where "I came from" and feel some kind of connection to my past. My great-great grandfather was in the civil war (he carried ice for the soldiers). How cool is that! Also my mom's family has lived in North Carolina for at least 6 generations. That's what I would calls some roots.

What's in a name ...

How beautiful are these vintage inspired peices from Sumiko. I love vintage pieces - new or old (oh the irony)! Sumiko is run by Evelyn and run out of Italy. She is very inspired by the colors and spirit of her seaside town in Italy but she loves Japan hence the shop name.
