I won a Liebster Award!

 

liebsterawardI won a blog award!  I go away for 6 months and lo and behold…an award bestowed upon me from a dear reader, Jane!   There was a list of questions I had to consider and reflect upon.  3 weeks later, I have answers.

If you were stranded on an island and could bring only three things, what would they be? (You can be as practical or impractical as you like):

  • Umm, lip balm.  Black Chapstick brand.  It’s my crack.
  • My iPhone with unlimited battery and Wi-Fi
  • Brita water filter

What is a habit or quirk that you have that people close to you have pointed out?

  • Well, if you are a blood relative, there are probably 1.3 trillion quirks you would post here.  So I don’t know where to start.  I have been told that I hold my beer bottle like a sailor.   And, I tend to be slightly overdramatic (I have a degree in Theatre… just getting a little return on my investment).

What fictional character from a movie/TV show/book do you most relate to? (or are similar to?)

  • I used to be 1 part Felix Unger (The Odd Couple) with 1 part Monica Geller(Friends).  However these days, I feel like Frankie Heck (The Middle).felix__1236003120_0507

What is one lesson learned from this year that you would like to share with us?

  • To forgive others before it’s too late.  Just do it.

Thanks again, Jane!!

Serena and Lilly Pondicherry Headboard

Remember our DIY headboard?

It was modeled after this hefty lover. She ain’t cheap.

However, according to one of my FAVORITE blog-broads, here is an alternative for those who don’t want to get their hands dirty bloody!

Go!  Buy!

I’m Back and a Moodboard!

It’s been EONS since I’ve been here.  I don’t even know if ANYONE reads this.   Anyone? ( I refuse to do the “Bueller” bit.  Shit, I just did it…).

Anyway, in April I took a new job (same company) and my creative mojo has significantly dwindled.  That’s a post (and some psychotherapy) for another day.  There have been a few things I have worked on here and there, but I typically post on my Facebook page.

I did get one thing done — and that is a living room mood board and shopping list for our friends’ parents.  I am really excited to see this room completely done!  The client already had the dark color on the walls and the white leather sectional so I just pulled some other key pieces and some art.   I know she has already purchased many of the items and is hoping to have it done for a few holiday parties.  (Minus, of course, that last 15% of layering that has to be done over time!).

My jumping off point was the little watercolor found here.  I sorta want it for me-self.

These clients live over an hour away so I hope to stop by around Christmas time to take an after picture!

Seriously, someone leave me a comment to let me know if anyone is still around or if I should shut this puppy down! :-)

Why Columbus is great:

Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream. It’s a must try (especially the Buckeye State and Salty Caramel flavors).

Complete Fleecing.

J Crew catalogue March 2012.

$420 for a sequin cami. Seems perfectly reasonable, no?

How the HELL did I afford that J. Crew flannel I tied around my waist circa 1993?!
