Bright and Beautiful

I've got a thing for color, if you can't tell.  Something about bright colors make a house a happy home, warm and inviting.  Although it is not for everybody, I think you need a little bit of it here and there.

Empire Chandeliers

Empire chandeliers have my heart.  They add so much to a room and are just so pretty.
I'll have to come back and update where photos came from.  Forget to tag them when saving!

Today I am tired...
My husband even said I have the "pregnancy grumps" which I know I do.  I even made a comment to my best friend that I should have kept to myself and now of course I feel terrible.  All I want to do is go climb in bed and sleep off this tiredness but we are having a security system put in today and as soon as he leaves, Finley will wake up.   Sigh...
But I know in the end, that little tiny baby will be worth all the napless days and sleepless nights.

Fall in love with Rikshaw...

...I already have.  A darling line of baby and child bedding, bibs, clothing,
and other baby accessories including items for mom inspired by the traditional block printing  in India.
Founder and designer Catherine Fitzsimmons has provided a line with not only
eye appealing prints but great quality materials. 
I can't wait to get my hands on some of these items myself!!

Project Finley

Finley, although only 14 months old, will be moving into a different bedroom this winter in order to make room for our new addition.  Baby #2 is coming March 8th and therefore I need to put the "big girl room" plan into action!  March seems like it is a while away, but the list of things that need to be accomplished by then is getting longer and longer.  The third photo is from Brocade Home and it is Finley's new duvet for her twin beds.  The rest of the photos just make me think of her!  So be ready for lots of little girl room photos and a new nursery design!
