'Round Here

We're finally getting around to setting up our guest bedroom. It's getting there. Need to find some drapes yet. Which reminds me, I have a few things that don't quite work in this house- especially drapes. If y'all are interested I might list some of them on here. Anyway, here's the bed.


I love this brass bed, it was in Josh's family. And if I didn't already have the white quilt I would have purchased this coverlet. I'm kinda obsessed with it and click on it regularly. That fun throw I have at the bottom is from ABC Home. Could also be a wall hanging, love a good versatile piece. We have pretty much nothing on the walls in our house. Haven't gotten to that task quite yet.

While I was in Chicago over the weekend, Josh planted all of the plants in our flower boxes. These things are about 6 feet long and there are 4 of them. It was a big job. I think they look awesome and can't wait for them to grow in some. We planted Ghost flowers, coral bells, camellias, and ivy. I can't remember the name of those fun light green bushy plants. Who can help me out here? ** Edit - they're Foxtails, thanks Kate! **

Fletcher is all about chasing his sister around or just plain running into her. It's hilarious really. Maybe only I think it's funny?

I went bra shopping last night. I hate bra shopping. This is how I feel about it.


I can't believe I'm sharing that. I went to Victoria's Secret b/c it's convenient. Most of their bras are absolute crap on me. I do like the Showstopper though. It supports me but doesn't make me look bigger than I am. For lounging around the house I really love Bali's Comfort Revolution bras. They have a new underwire style in this collection that I'm dying to try too.

This weekend I'm working on my Home Depot Holiday Style Challenge (read about it and all the bloggers participating here). I'm decorating my front door for their website. I'm certain all my new neighbors will think I'm kooky when they walk by and see me putting up Christmas stuff in October. I think I'll need to put up signs in the yard to explain what's up.

Happy Weekend!

Ahhhh!!! Love Fletcher running into Lils, that's the best! Wells and Tagg are big fans of wrestling right now too. Although Tagg isn't on the move so it's more containable. Love that you're in on the style challenge, I bet your door will look smashing. I need a new bra too. Still haven't had a chance to go shopping yet. Keeping those two on my list! And love your bed too, even better that it's got so much history!

Good luck in the challenge! How exciting and I can't wait to see it! No worries, you'll fit right in since all of the stores have their Christmas decorations up already!

Bra shopping used to be my absolute worst nightmare. Hate. Now I don't mind it :) Love the way you used that thing you bought in NYC (don't even know what to call it)

Asparagus fern!

Love your face in that picture, yep pretty much how I feel about that situation too. love the planters too doll!!! Ummm no I think I need to get Tay a walker because that is hilarious!

Kate said...

actually - asparagus fern is accurate, but those specifically look like 'Foxtail' asparagus ferns.

Would love to peruse your drape selection too...I'm in need of a few myself.

I used to shop at VS, but I changed to Calvin Klein and LOVE their bras. So now I go to department stores, they fit really good ;)

Haskell Harris said...

Bahahaha. I hate bra shopping too. Especially VS because they DO NOT make bras for anyone that has big boobs. DD-pressing, if you asked me ;)

Natalie {Designer Bags and Dirty Diapers} said...

Your potters look freaking amazing. The picture of Fletcher running into Lily made my day. I hate VS bras but then again I never bra shop. I bought one new one right after I had Sterling and that was the last new bra I bought. I do like Wacaol and Natori brands.

Bra shopping is the wooorst! Every Victorias Secret bra I have falls apart. Annoyance. I'll have to check out Comfort Revolution Bras!
Isn’t That Charming.

I love the quilt on that bed! I wish I could get to my guest bedroom already - it's so plain right now.

I agree, for the most part, but don’t you feel as if the issue is more complex than that?
