Master Retreat a la Little House on the Prairie

24 Feb

Here’s our Master Bed & Bath all dolled up for the Sadie Hawkins dance. Actually, no…it looks like this every day. It’s Shabby Chic (although I kinda shudder at that term since it’s gone so mainstream and is oft used incorrectly) and also Flapper Chic and also Farmhouse Chic and also Granny Chic and Thrifty Chic and Upcycled Chic also Eclectic Alternative Chic. SO basically it’s just like totally chic, y’all. But what it is to me is a relaxing place where my eyes and mind can rest. With two monchichis underfoot all day e’ry day, a retreat is an important place to have. I would say this is the most “done” room in the house. Mainly because there is no more wall space.

A Bit Mod After All…Our Upstairs Hideaway, LeLounge

24 Feb

After living here for 2 years and treating our upstairs as a storage area for my {verdigreen} shop and an off-limit tease to the kids (no thanks to the stairwell of doom…an iron spiral staircase which proved too dangerous for tots) I *finally* organized, unpacked, and surprised hubs with furniture for Christmas last year. It was well worth the wait as we now use this room several times per week. It’s our game-watching hangout, our family game night rec room, and my packing/shipping/picture-taking showroom for Etsy-ing. Since it’s completely separate from the rest of our house I opted for a more funky vintage mod look to give us a change in scenery when we head upstairs. The picture gallery below is a work in progress as I have a few angles left to take once the room is complete (or before I change it all again.)

Robot Party

24 Feb

After nearly 8 months of planning, the day of reckoning was upon us: my firstborn’s 4th Birthday.

I found a robot themed party set on sale last summer – bright electric colors, space, mechanics and robots that I knew would be fun to coordinate. I planned in advance for months so I would be absorbed in something other than crying into my coffee at the thought of my baby boy morphing into a little kid so my kiddo know how special he was to me.

A neighbor/friend of mine (Sandra of Through Sandra’s Lens) came by to take pics which I combined with a few of my own to document Hunter’s 4th Robot Party below.
