What’s In for 2017: Acrylic Furniture

Hey there!  My heat has been restored and of course it's been 70 degrees the last couple of days... but we're due for another cold blast, so at least I'll be in comfort this time around. :)  I thought it would be fun over the next few weeks to share some of the trends in decor I'm seeing online and in print... some of these might be holdovers from 2016, but they're still going strong in interiors, so it's not too late to jump on the … [Read more...]

HGTV Dream Home 2017 {Eye Candy}

Happy Monday, friends!  I hope you had a great weekend.  I had a pretty low-key one just taking care of Legacy loose ends and plodding through my purging.  I was battling a low blood pressure so I didn't get TONS done, but progress is progress, right? Today I thought it would be fun to share a few of my favorite elements from this year's HGTV Dream Home.  This year they brought Brian Patrick Flynn on board and the design felt very different … [Read more...]

Five on Friday {Insta-Faves Edition}

Hi there, friends... January is just slip-sliding away, isn't it??  Registration at Legacy has been cranking and so another busy week is winding down. :)  I've been working away on my purging projects and will share a post on progress here soon.  I've also got a sweet little DIY coming you way... I know -- shocking, right??  But in the meantime, I wanted to share five of my faves from Instagram this week.  A couple of these are giving me some … [Read more...]

Merry Christmas, Friends!

I had every intention of posting all kinds of things Christmas and holiday this month, but life and Legacy got in the way.  As it is, I am skidding into this weekend with my "to do's" barely finished but determined to slow it down and soak in the real reason for the season with my peeps.  So since I shortchanged you on Christmas posts, I decided to pop in today with heartfelt Christmas wishes and some snapshots of Christmas around my … [Read more...]

McGill Design Group (Monday Eye Candy)

Dining Room Update

Monday, already?  I actually had a pretty low key weekend and am feeling on the downside of my head cold so fingers crossed that it's behind me!  I did get a few things done around the house and that's always a good feeling. :) One of the things on my list was to put my dining room "back together."  I may not have shared that last May my parents loaded up our family piano and drove it to Austin for my older sister, who is experiencing a … [Read more...]

Five on Friday

T.G.I.F.  And I MEAN that!  I'm ready to wind down this week, but not quite sure I'm ready to say goodbye to April!  #yikes  Thanks for sharing your thoughts on yesterday's porch plans post... I'm ready to get rocking on that bad boy. Today's Five on Friday is another dose of randomness but all good stuff... 1.  What Should I Read Next podcast.  Yes, another podcast, but it's another good one!  Anne Bogel from the blog The Modern … [Read more...]

I Can’t Resist: Kate Marker Interiors

Hey there, friends!  Monday again... yikes!  We enjoyed the most gorgeous weekend here in GA.  The hubs and I headed down to my in-laws' and got a few outdoor projects done for them.  It felt awesome to be out in the sunshine... and we are pre-pollen-explosion so we were basking in that, too.  It's a short window of time before the pollen gets bad, so I jacked up my own list of outdoor to-dos for this week as well.  Gotta make hay while the sun … [Read more...]

I Can’t Resist: Oriental Rugs in the Kitchen

Hey there, friends!  It's been a busy week for Legacy and RAIN RAIN RAIN for days, so a painting project I'd hoped to share isn't quite share-able today.  BUT... I did want to share a design idea I just can't quit these days...  oriental rugs in the kitchen. I was first intrigued with this a few years back when I spotted this image on Joan's blog for the love of a house... for the love of a house Which, by the way, if you don't follow … [Read more...]

This ‘n That Monday

Hey there!  I hope your week is off to a great start!  I'm still trying to figure out where the weekend went... I spent some time relaxing, watching TV and reading, whipped up a couple of chalkboard projects for the booth, and enjoyed a FUN girls' night out/sleep over with some dear old friends.  I intended to spend time shredding paperwork in my home office, but that seemed like no fun... and didn't get done. :) And this morning it's rainy … [Read more...]
