Phew, I'm finally out from under a mountain of work emails and blog posts. As I was digging myself out, I had to stop and breathe every once in a while - do you ever forget to do that? Breathe? I do. All the time. So while you read these posts below, I'll just be over here breathing. Okay that sounded creepy.
I'm so making this Constellation Jar found today on Design Mom. I keep promising my three year old that I'll get her stars for her ceiling, but these seems like a much more fun project to do together.
I love that John and Sherry at Young House Love are so frank and forthright about the challenges they face in designing their home. A lot of the interiors blogs gloss over the decision making process and make you think they do it in a flash and just like that it's a gorgeous finished room. So, this post today about their indecision in bedroom design really resonated with me.
It's no secret that green is my favorite color, well I guess if you don't know me personally then yes it's a secret to you. So here you go, I love green! Remodelista has photos of a fantastic house in London with pops of green throughout (all in an effort to bring the outdoors in).
There is a large box from One Kings Lane lying in my entryway, daring me to open it. I know what's inside but I'm a little nervous to look. It will contain the baking dishes from the Albert Hadley estate sale. I vacillate between excitement at owning something that was his, and wondering if it's a little creepy to be handling his baking dishes. It's not, right?
On another Albert Hadley note, Habitually Chic has a lovely post on the Kips Bay Show House and the tribute to Hadley done by some of his former employees. Did you know he smoked until he was 91?
Need a little more green in your life? I'm talking about peas not money. Head over to Cannelle et Vanille to drink in her lush green photos - they had a calming effect on me today. This post was actually done last week while I was away, but I didn't want you to miss it.
Heading home now and hoping I'm not totally drowned by the rain. This morning I even had to go home for a fresh set of clothes! Some welcome back from the beach :)
