What's been up

My dear darlings. I know you love a glimpse into my daily life, so that is what you shall get. Here was my week, last week. Coffee with one of my besties with my Valentine's Day mani inspired by THE foxy Holly at Glamourmash. I admitted it to her and I will admit it to you. It took me a solid 32 times to cut the heart exactly right. Maybe I am not so crafty after all. 
Finally received my antelope carpet samples from Myers Carpet. I am having a ginormous runner (try 24 feet) installed in a client's home and with the remnants of that, a large rug will be made for little ol' me. 
So I have decided that my bedroom is getting a makeover and all inspired by this pillow that I snatched up off of Etsy. Lots of pattern mixing and such will be happening. Rest assured. 
These lamps will be residing in the same space. I had to have the perfect chartreuse hue to go with that fabulous pillow. How could I have it any other way? For those of you interested, the color is Valspar New Avocado.
This is the bedding I have selected for the space. Although I adore white bedding, I am so over the constant maintenance of it. My dogs have destroyed it with their itty bitty paws. Even though this bedding has a white background, I am certain that the subtle pink pattern will distract the eye from puppy paws damage. 
Out with the old, and in with the new. These consoles are going to be used as my nightstands. Super glam glam (thank you Martin Lawrence Bullard). 
A little DIY I threw together this week. I had a piece of coral that I got in the Outer Banks last year that I had to use somewhere. I decided why not frame it in a shadow box with some gorgeous fabric? Done and done. Super easy DIY aside from me having to cut part of the bottom of the sea fan to fit into the frame. Let me tell ya, they don't make the sea fare strong for nothing. Had to drill through that baby. 
A close up for Mr. Demille. 
This is what the girls have been up to. Guard dogging. This will forever be their favorite spot. Tenacious Duo, I tell you. 
Aaaaannnnddd lastly but certainly not least, this is what is happening in the CVS parking lot. On my way out from picking up the essentials, Hot Buns and fake eyelashes, I spotted this gem and knew it would be criminal to not share it with the world. I mean, dead or alive here folks? She was out cold. I have decided that from now on I will be sharing a funny picture from my week with you all. Why not, I say?

  6. Love that fabric and your nightstands, and that coral ! Oh, and YOUR GIRLS are simply adorable. They should have Nicholas, my shih tzu over for guard duty play dates. Mine is tenacious also, until the person comes in, then he a puddle of mush. But the yard, street, driveway, they are his possessions! have a great day.

    1. I used pins to hold the coral piece in place! Super easy!

    2. Thanks, I'm gonna try this soon. I've had my coral for over a year just waiting to be framed up. Mine has a fairly large base at the bottom, so I might need to utilize the drill as well (or maybe I'll just frame it without the glass). Thanks for the info!

  13. I am SO on-board with the bedding theory! I had to surrender my (preferred) all-white bedding last year. The constant paw prints drove me crazy! Can't wait to see your antelope- we have a similar rug and I love it!

  14. antelope is the new thaang. and i love it. i can totally see how an entire room could be birthed from that pillow. i live near the outer banks and am there all the time. i never find fun things like coral fans though. perhaps i need to get better at scouring the seashells by the seashore. i also ended up changing from a white duvet to a printed bedspread due to the dog situation. it definitely helps hide the dirt.

  15. I can't wait to see your antelope rug!!!!!! That carpet it ridic!!

  16. I ordered samples of the antelope as well...did it take forever?? I can't wait to see some shots of your bedroom, I love everything you've put together so far!!! And that girl napping...hilarious! I will definitely be staying tuned for your funny pics of the week!!
