Monogram Monday

{all items above can be found at Swoozies or any local paper store}

Spring has sprung- or maybe it is Summer has Spring since it was near 90 all weekend in Dallas and I was at the pool! Anywho- I love the folded notes from Lily Pulitzer because nothing says spring like Lilly! The patterns are bright and fun (like her dresses!) and can really be used for girls of any age! This is a great pick up for under $20!! Check out her gift items too- great for girls off too college!!

The Wall

This wall has been in my mind for a few years after seeing in in countless magazine articles and home decor catalogs. I love the look of a gallery style hanging- it took all the "things" I have been "collecting" (or one could say buying randomly bc I am impulsive) and after all little designer friend help (thank you Ellet!) it was hung to make it seem like all the elements were meant and bought to be hung in a group. When I see this wall I notice a few things about myself-

A. I am consistent with color- I like Black.
B. I am drawn to both florals and abstracts which, when done with a great eye, can be combined to make a very gender balanced look
C. Man I have great taste (ha ha!- jk I just didnt have a C and I thought leaving it A & B would be strange...)

I also love this gallery style hanging because it takes neutral color walls and brings life to them- great for anyone who is a renter!

Monogram Monday

{All stamps from the FooYou shop on Etsy}

I'm baaack. Made it through the move- we have Internet- things are starting to be hung on the walls- life has resumed back to normal (almost.) Over the weekend I bought a cute new rubber stamp for my new house! I have bought several stamps from Fountain Maury previous but they aren't open for business at the moment so I turned to Etsy to see what I could find. There were so so many cute stamps to choose from that it was tough to pick! I chose the one on the top, from the ForYoo shop, because I loved the font- honestly I could have bought 5. Return address stamps make for GREAT gifts- teachers, moms, girlfriends, house warming- really just about any occasion!
