Just a quick little post of two images I pinned a while back. Of course, I love that Hinson fireworks wallpaper but it was the zebra prints that really drew me in….looks so great against the paper and with those sconces. A fun place for a hip little one, no?

And speaking of zebras, how great is this space? The supersized art is definitely the show stopper in my opinion. It really elevates an otherwise simple little spot.

So, with that little bit of randomness, I am off. Lots of work to do, including heading over to the school this AM for a special chapel! My husband has been out of town since Sunday and Harry has been home sick with a fever. I am soooo happy that he seems better today (actually he started seeming better as we walked into the pediatricians office yesterday) and my husband will be home tonight!
All is well in the world.
I’ll apologize in advance, posting will be sporadic until my new site launches. Too many balls in the air. I finally broke down and hired some extra help and it is making me feel like I can breath just a tad better……and can step away from my computer! Speaking of computers, yesterday I woke up to this:

I couldn’t get to my site, not the blog, not the admin panel, not even the database. I was freaking out. I might have blamed my web team…..I feel bad. Blame actually went to Register.com who had a server outage and didn’t feel the need to alert customers…..and after about 45 minutes waiting to talk to tech support was told he had no idea when it would be up. Oh well, what was I gonna do…..learning not to freak about that which I cannot control over here. The issues were obviously fixed, beacause you are reading my blog now!
I lost a diamond earring yesterday…which I didn’t notice until I walked into my client’s house. She must think I am a hot mess. Retraced my steps from the morning, no luck….I feel sick. By that time, I had to pick up Maddie from school. We ran to the Quadrille showroom where she got water, a bathroom break and played on their white linen couches while I chatted with the showroom manager. She’s met both of my kids in the last week……I am sure she loves seeing my car pull into the lot! Oy.
Finally, today would have been my mom’s birthday. It feels surreal that she isn’t here…..Maddie and I have been looking at lots of photos of her recently. We miss her!
So, apologies for the word heavy post. If you don’t see me for a while…..please don’t leave me….I’ll be back….I am just having to limit the posting, pinning and other stuff that just isn’t helping me GET THE SITE DONE! Hope you understand.
Happy Hump Day!
I was chained to my computer almost all weekend working on the new website. Looks like it will launch next week….I cannot wait! If I can get my act together this week, I will post some previews of what is to come. In the meantime, here are some of the things I pinned over the weekend while flipping from product sku spreadsheets to the call of prettier (and more fun) stuff on Pinterest! As you can see….there is no theme here!

What’s inspiring you today?
It is cold and blustery in Dallas today. I stumbled on the below wallpaper and it made me smile. Kinda granny, country and retro all at once….but I like it.

My baby has Kindergarten round-up today. She tours the school while I wait in line with every document I can find to prove we live in the school district and she can get a spot in the school that is within walking distance to our house. In my 38 years, I’ve never lived in a place where there were good public schools before and it was a big part of why we bought where we did. I feel blessed…..and sad that my baby will be in Kindergarten in August!
She is really growing up…..so independent wanting to pick her own outfits and for the first time this year….having a very strong opinion on what we’ll do for her birthday. Much to my dismay she’s convinced us to have her party at a venue I detest more than any for birthdays. (She sees rooms of bouncing fun…..I see germs, ample opportunities for accidents and a complete inability to make it cute and girly.) But hey, it’s her party, not mine, right?
Speaking of Maddie, did I ever mention her bedside lamps came in finally? Excuse the photo I snapped on my iPhone a couple of weeks ago….but she’s sleeping as I type this and it is dark…..so this photo will have to do.
I am going to be selling those lamps (in tons of colors) in my online shop. Pretty excited about getting them! Still no promises on when the site will launch….but I am going to step on a limb and say within a month. I think I need to get over my perfectionist tendencies, take a deep breath….and let it go….if I don’t, I may never launch and I might go broke in the process! We are in that whole change order phase that is oh so fun!
And finally, another paper I am obsessed with…..in this particular colorway……but it is $$$$ (this is printed on grasscloth and sold by the yard) and for that reason, wish I’d never laid eyes on it! (Or shared it with a new local client!)

Happy Tuesday Everyone!
PS–My email notifications of comments aren’t showing up….which means I cannot email you back. So, if you have commented recently with a comment or suggestion….thank you! I am not ignoring the gesture….just don’t know how to reach you back! Sorry!
Cold and rainy here today.
These make me smile.
It also makes me smile that my kids slept in today!
My kids love to read / be read to. It’s why our playroom has an entire wall devoted to their books. So, it won’t come as a surprise that I love this new paper from Penguin and Osborne & Little.
How fun would this paper be in a reading nook with a window seat?
It is cold and rainy here in Dallas.
Wish I were curled up with my Book….
Instead of meeting with my accountant today.
