Here are a few of my favorite things

Raindrops on Roses....you know the song.  I thought I would start off my new resolution to find time to blog within this crazy three kid, two dog, one husband, sports schedule, pediatrician trip, laundry basket life....with some things I hope to see more of in the second half of 2012!

1. Traditionally tailored glamour

What a glamorous toilet!

2. Parties - any reason to celebrate

3. Food - I love to cook it, I love to eat it and look at sumptuous pictures of it...

Yum...I love everything Italian in the kitchen...

Bread, olive oil and salt cold be my last meal...

4. Pretty clothes

I want to design window treatments around the architecture of this dress...

P.S. My three year old son climbed on me like a jungle gym during most of this post...I think I need to see the chiro....

Need a little inspiration in the bedroom?

Wouldn't it be dreamy if your bedroom was your favorite spot in your home? Your  refuge, your sanctuary? Everyone says it, yet almost everyone I work with says "Lets do the rest of the house first, we are the only ones that will see the bedroom." I say "boo!" Treat yourself. Smile every time you wake up and feel enveloped when you walk in, weary, if your life is like mine, at the end of every day. Here is some food for thought....

Love the detail on this headboard and drapes behind the bed. Sumptuous!
