Lonny and Nesting Newbies Online Fabulousness

I know that most everybody is familiar with Lonny now, but I just got wind of this new online magazine, Nesting Newbies ! The lovely Julie over at Belle Maison 23 wrote a post about this new online inspiration.

I will be adding it to one of the many things I am currently addicted to...

Thank you Belle Maison for the wonderful tip!

Gorgeous Headers

I am a blog jumper. I find myself an hour into blog jumping and realize...hey? It's what time?! All I've been doing is BLOG JUMPING?!

But I love it. And there are so many talented wonderful souls out there that I just can't stop myself.

One of the things that I LOVE to look at are beautiful headers. I love a great header, and these are just spectacular. I'm so inspired by each of these in such different ways. I'm thinking of creating a "beautiful header award". Does that already exist? hmmm.

 I am smitten with them all. 

Recycled Chandeliers

I have been so naughty about writing and visiting all your fabulous wonderful blogs. My past week has been a tornado of work, and I think it might be getting back to its usual pace now!!! I so apologize for the absence and to show my appreciation, I'll be giving away a prize this weekend! So be on the lookout tomorrow...

Ever since I spyed this trash chandelier in the Two's Company Dallas showroom this past January, I've been seeing them everywhere.

I don't know if it's a trend or I'm just now noticing these beautiful reclaimed art pieces. Discarded pieces of "trash" can really be so intriguing!

They manage to make the most beautiful emails ever.

It's like a breath of fresh air for my oversaturated mailbox ...

Fuchsia February - Fuchsia and plum

I love color. LOVE LOVE LOVE. And I get so inspired by different combinations.

This month, albeit late, I'm picking fuchsia! Throughout the rest of the month, I want to highlight different combos using one fabulous color.

Thank you Therese!

 { I am so so honored to be mentioned in Therese's beautiful and fabulous blog, La Dolfina . It's so great to meet friends through blogging! Too bad we live across the country from each other =( Thank you dear...}

Happy Birthday Daddy!

It's my daddy's 68th birthday, and I want to wish him the most wonderful year that anybody can have. He's a walking miracle that battled cancer and survived a heart attack and we're so thankful to still have him in our lives.

He will NEVER read this, because he's never been on a computer in his life, but I just wanted to put it out there.

Diagonal Stripes

Ever since I saw this pillow from 2modern, I've been clawing at every black and white diagonally striped thing I can get my hands on.

I love stripes, but they can get a bit on the boring side sometimes. Love how fresh and interesting diagonal looks!
