The brighter side of life!

I was going to write a post about our flooring situation. But it's still a sore subject. Lets just say we've sanded the floors(again!) and we're back to square one. When it's all figured out, I'll fill you in on the details!

Instead, I'll share some of the positives happening around here!

Talmadge had a birthday this past weekend. He's now 2!

I made my own version of THIS cake for the little guy's b-day. He's so into trucks right now (dig-digs!), so it was a hit!

The b-day boy was a little spoiled by everyone at his party! This Strider bike from Uncle Jeff is especially cool. If you have a toddler, you'll want one! A no peddle bike that teaches kids to ride at a young age without training wheels!

My incredibly sweet sister, Shyla had these orchids delivered to me after I filled her in on the flooring situation last week. She knew I was (a little!)stressed and wanted to cheer me up...it worked! I transferred them to a vintage brass pot and they're my little bit of pretty in this messy, torn apart house!

I met up with a friend/client to check out the progress of her kitchen reno I'm helping design. It's pretty exciting to see things happening! There's an old barn beam that's been installed and some awesome lighting ordered. Can't wait to see it all finished!

Two of these pillows from the etsy shop, Aurelia are going in a master bedroom I designed for my sister-in-law. It's getting close to being done and I'll have more to share on that too!

When I was in Canada last month, I took on a little project for my sister. It included striping 4 layers of paint off this burled walnut fireplace-Who paints burled walnut??? The rest of the room got a dramatic dark coat of paint, new lighting and drapes. She's going to finish a few things(in her spare time, with a new baby) and then send picture's for me to post:)

I've had some luck at yard sales recently and picked up vintage crates-Perfect for storing kids books and(overflowing) toys!

My little peanut! She's half way to a year already!
