Honor Roll

Honor Roll

Sometimes I come across something so cute/sweet/charming/funny/pretty/inspiring/lovely that I just want to share it with you.  These are the things that have made my  honor roll.

  • I can’t live with the look in my home, but I love lots of little knick-knacks and open storage when done well by others. Like this (above).
  • Polka dots, metallics, and confetti… Oh my! What a pretty
  • I’m growing out my hair, because I miss all the (And isn’t that shade of red beautiful?)
  • We never use the bathtub in on the main floor of the house, but I still doubt Brandon would let me
  • Loving the new Color! Fun! A million things I want!
  • I know I already told you all about the new e-magazine but here’s an interesting
  • The make something mundane into something special, don’t you think?
  • A (with a darling family).
  • Also, I’ve been adding lots of things to wish list (and you can always see the latest five items in the sidebar). Looks like I’ve been into plates and shoes lately, eh?

    Ow my – I’m really a big fan of open storages in the kitchen. Thanks for the inspiration!

    I saw the beautiful shoes on your wishlist and they made me think of one of my favorite brands: Chie Mihara. You already know that one? It’s spanish and amazing!

      Lovely shoes. I’ve seen the brand mentioned before, but I don’t own any (yet!).

    I love the look of open storage too, but I live in a rented apartment and so I can’t quite take a part my place just yet! Hopefully someday.

    Have you seen the ear muffs at Kate Spade? My hubby surprised me with a pair for Sweetest Day last month. SOOOO cute and right up your alley!

    Wow that kitchen is lovely! And love the hairstyles – I’m growing mine out again for the same reason.

    Makes me happy to look at. I agree, not my style but very pleasing.

    Oh, the growing out the hair times are so tough. You get a cute cut, people love it but you long for the long, start growning, get irritated cut, start over. Good luck and stay strong. Nothing beats a good ponytail on a “I just don’t feel like messing with it” day.

    I love the vinyl numbers on the tin cups. Wal-mart always has the tiny buckets for sale during holidays and they are so cheap! I need to pick some up to do this!

    Nicole, I tried the Holiday Hair today!!! I loved it! you can see it on my blog! My hair was tighter than hers I couldn’t get it to stay up without making it tight. But, I liked it.

    I love your honor rolls. You save me a lot of time by highlighting nice things. I don’t think that couple is real. They look too perfect. What size shoe do you wear? I have some ancient Ferragamos like that that no one wants.

    I’m also in love with that west elm wood-slices dinnerware! I totally have no use for it though, since we received a different set for our wedding!

    random question, did I miss this or did you ever post “after” photos of the white trim?

    cheers, m

    I totally agree with you about all the “stuff” in the kitchen. I often like the way it looks in others’ photos, but to live around all that would drive me insane. I think that door knocker on your wish list is amazing. And the bubbles in the tub? Divine! You could always hang the glass bubbles above it, and just leave the tub empty. Won’t have quite the same effect, but I’m a big fan of ceilings doing extra duty.
