A little bit of this

Thanks to our friend Charmaine, who's bathroom reveal we reposted earlier this week, we were awarded the Liebster Blog Award!  The award was passed to her by Tiffany Leigh of The Designer Lifestyle and meant to recognize the small, just starting out blogs!  We were thrilled that Charmaine recognized us and we can only hope to return the favor in the future!

A couple folks we'd like to nominate are:

Janna from Swoon! Interiors
Pam from Simple Details
Teresa from Splendid Sass
Jamie and Vashti at Like Me Some
Kerry at Design Du Monde

After styling and photographing the heck out of Mom's reveal last night, we couldn't manage much in the way of creativity tonight.  How about an iPhone summary of my week, instead?

Picked up an orchid from Ikea, thanks to Bryn's suggestion.

The upholsterer called and my curtains were done!  I had to get busy patching the wall I kept procrastinating on.

 Shopper's Food Warehouse had the most amazing hydrangeas for sale for $3.99.  Right?

My new Kevin O'Brien pillow arrived!!

I picked up my rite of passage porcelain from Middle Kingdom. 

I ordered this sweet tablecloth only to find out that it won't fit my table.  Never fear, I have awesome plans for it in the bedroom...

Mom and I stalked Target last night and found some awesome lamps.  

The one looks just like the $799 Ralph Lauren lamp it was modeled after. For real, it's only $29!

This one too.  $29 smackers beats the Arteriors price!

And Mom almost convinced me to buy two of these ($18 each!) for my guest room.  Couldn't quite commit to the bright flame color!

Happy Friday, folks!
