Decorating with Pops Of Color

I took the built-in cabinet doors off of a cabinet in our master bedroom a couple of years ago...this is one of them. I hung a small wreath and a wrought iron planter on it, the planter was black ...so aqua to the rescue. I think I need to paint the frame of the door, any thoughts....? Red, black, fun green??
I added the large heart here, the mirror and a few more pics....I painted the tiny frame on the wall and the framed mirror...again an aqua color. (Dina, the small cross is from the necklace you made :)

I found the wooden six (unfinished) at Hobby Lobby for ONE PENNY, I glued it to a box frame and painted it aqua...it adds color to the ho hum shelving unit (from IKEA).

Another view of my hallway with added color.

This wall ONLY held the corrugated metal heart with the family sign....I added several hearts from around the house and it became a HEART wall. I really like the way it turned out.

See my red chairs? (of course you do) They were in my nursery at the church I grew up in, I kept them red....I have a pretty decent collection of small and tiny chairs throughout the house. All in varying sizes and colors.

The Stop sign was in our garage, its from the 50's....I love it and thought it'd be fitting in our den since it is the Pit Stop for our whole family and fitting that we have 4 children too. We painted almost our entire house last year or two years ago and this wall was STILL bare until yesterday. I added the door like in our kitchen but painted this one green. The canvas' I already had, I repainted them black and with white paint placed each of our children's hands on them with their ages, full names and birthdays hand painted under the hands. The edges of the canvas are very thick and I glued black and white polka dotted grosgrain ribbon on them. Between the pictures on the far right is a small red cross, it was silver so I used red METAL paint on it. I will have something between the sign and the pictures, just haven't come up with anything yet.....progression in my head though.

Little Lofton at three months

We had our own little photo shoot in her bedroom yesterday, she was a little trooper.

I love some of her little faces she makes.
Love this girl!

Little smirk. he he

Sweet precious pumpkin pie.

Backside, I think we all could use bloomers with our names on them.

Hope you are all having a great new year! I'm not promising anything, but I'm HOPING that I can get back into the groove of regular posting. I miss coming and visiting your blogs as well. Later folks.

Baby Girl is Here

Here she is...Lofton Grace, she was born Friday Oct. 8, 2010! Weight 6 lbs. 9 oz. 20 in. long. She was the smallest of all our babies. We are all doing well and we're completely in love with our glorious child of God. Lofton is a week old today, she has dimples just like her sister Bentley.

J.Crew Perfect Tees...even Perfect for Pregnant Gals

The above picture was taken at almost 32 weeks.....in my FAVORITE gray J.Crew Perfect Tee that I've worn throughout my entire pregnancy. I am absolutely in love with these shirts, pregnant or not.

You can see here that I'm wearing the ruffle front perfect tee, it's lovely and fits wonderfully. I probably didn't look necessarily HOT (at 35 weeks) wearing anything I had on that day, but I felt cute and that's what matters. :)

Inspiration Photos

the ceiling in this room is lovely!...love the white walls with the unexpected ceiling color.

The tutu, the leotard, the bows.......all wonderfully girl friendly and just plain fun. Thinking of making something like this for B-Girl for Halloween

Would like to make a mobile using this idea for baby girl.

Simple curtains using ribbon and I think, napkin rings.

pretty colors, really like the pink dresser between the beds

Heather Bailey's studio, the colors in here are divine.

I like to give credit where credit is due, but my inspiration file doesn't always have info that I need, only pictures.

Have a GREAT and long weekend.

Baby Bedding for our Baby Girl

A mix of Amy Butler's Love fabric (above and below) .........

and a mix of this.....
Crib Bedding from Target.......I finally decided on this set by Tiddliwinks (well priced and looks custom, especially if you mix and match it with things you have and new things). The bedding came via UPS today and I could not be more pleased.

I had this pillow made by Color Me Cute on Etsy......this is obviously the back of the pillow, the front of the pillow has HER name on it and we're not telling the name until she's here. (we're tricky that way) I seriously love everything about this pillow, vintage mixed with fun, vibrant colorfulness.....my favorite way to decorate.

Here is the sweet baby quilt, it is very pretty in person...like I said, GREAT price...but doesn't look cheap. This bedding will look so lovely with Bentley's twin bedding she already has, it's shabby chic (from Target as well). I've put the bedding side by side and it looks good without being "matchy matchy". I simply cannot wait to start putting their room together, a "Girly Getaway" it will be.......then on to getting the boys room, a.k.a. the "Boy Cabin" together. Think I can accomplish this in the next 8-ish weeks???
