hippity hoppity easter’s on it’s way…

One thing I love about Easter is seeing all of the creative ways people decorate eggs.  Just when you think you’ve seen it all, you haven’t.  Unfortunately, I can’t really remember the last time I dyed easter eggs…I think it was probably a few years ago.  My favorite thing now is to see the eggs my niece decorates.  It seems at her age the fun part is just getting to dip the eggs in the dye…I don’t think she really cares what color it actually comes out to be…brown would be just fine by her.  Do you still decorate Easter eggs?

linen bedding by moods



I am dreaming of climbing into the bed above.  There is just something to me that is so calming and luxurious about linen bedding.  It is so soft and natural and it really just makes a room more sophisticated.  Did you know that linen bedding is:

  • high resistance to tension or friction
  • antibacterial
  • antistatic
  • airy
  • one of the oldest fabrics
  • hypoallergenic
  • moisture absorbing
  • biodegradable and environmentally friendly

Moods Store on etsy has a simple and beautiful selection of linen bedding that won’t break your bank.  Their fabrics are softened and pre washed so they are delicate and pleasant to the touch but they don’t lose all of their benefits listed above.  You can purchase a 3 piece queen size set for $295!  Besides bedding, they also sell items for your kitchen, dining, bathroom, and nursery.  What’s your favorite color…white or natural?

twin bedrooms

There is just something about twin bedrooms that I love.  Most of the time they seem to be for, well, kids….BUT sometimes people will buy two twin beds to furnish a room where they may have guest frequently.  It’s a great way to give someone their own sleeping space…I know it’s not much space but,  at least you don’t have to rub up against someone you don’t want to. :)  You can make them super bright and colorful with that young at heart feel or you can make them feel more adult and sophisticated.  I’m excited to get a chance to design a room like any of these one day…

bri1 bri2 bri3 bri4 bri5 bri6


I’m just drooling today over Bri Emery’s new living room designed by Emily Henderson.  Bri is the beautiful and spunky genius behind the blog Design Love Fest.  Her passion for entertaining and all things design have been perfectly portrayed through Emily Hendersons mad mad skills!  I love the way she uses a white backsplash and then just throws color all around the room with lamps, accessories, art and more.  Head over to DLF to see more photos and get the inside scoop on how this look was achieved.

“HOW FUN”!  That was the first thing that popped into my mind when I stumbled across these sit-upons by lil blue boo.  Have you every gone somewhere where you have to sit on the ground and it’s been raining and a blanket is just not going to cut it?  Or you need a quick place to “park it” while you are outside?  These are just perfect for that!  You can also use them as “time-out seats” if you have children who aren’t cooperating while you are outside, or even inside, playing.  They are made from tablecloths and scrap ribbons so they are waterproof and you can find them in such fun and bright colors!  Too find out how you make them head over to lil blue boo to see the tutorial!
