Why Such the Wait?

So, I have the chandelier, and the go ahead from hubby to do the entryway. So, what's the hold up? Well, we've commissioned some artwork for the niche. Here's a sneak peak of the inspiration. Ok, ok, blatant rip-off. You guys are such sticklers for the truth. Sheesh!

Gilding the Lily

So I've been watching alot of Top Design. You'd think that it would inspire me to go knock out my own home in 12 hours with a budget of $2000. But, alas, it doesn't. It just makes me realize how much I DON'T know. I'm like Andrea, only worse. So, I've just been enjoying the show. And trying to improve my taste level. One thing they keep stating this year is that flowers make or break a room. I guess all of my rooms are broken, because I never have fresh flowers. That's OK, I don't think Kelly Wearstler will pop round anytime. And if she does, my kids would make fun of her hair. So there!

I remember years ago seeing a Kirstie Allie interview where she says she spends the same amount on fresh flowers for her house that she used to spend on drugs.
Why, oh, why didn't I develop a drug habit in my early years, so that I would have that kind of cash set aside? I'm not that good at planning for the future.

But here are some beautiful arrangements that I've come across to inspire you so that your rooms won't be broken...only your bank accounts!

Julianne Rocks!

My youngest turned three last week, so Julianne and I went to the park Saturday morning to take some pictures. They are so cute, that I have no idea how I'm going to choose just a few to display. I seriously could wallpaper her room, there are so many to choose from! Great problem to have, though. Which is your fav?
