For my Guest Room...
For my baby girl's room...
For our room
For my craft room!

I am in the mood for change this week! It must be the fact that Spring is here, or it could be that things over here have been pretty static lately because I have been so busy! Either way I feel a change coming on! Probably in my baby girl's room since I am not completely satisfied with it currently. Or possibly in the kitchen. We got a new refrigerator and that makes me want a whole new look!
We'll see what I decide as I have the whole weekend to myself!
Tomorrow's Wednesday, which means we're halfway through!

Tomatoes planted!
Plenty of dandelions for baby girl to pick and make wishes!
Hoola Hoop hanging spot all picked out and put to good use!
Sweet, happy girl making use of every last ray of sun to play outside in this lovely Spring weather!

Life is good:)Happy Wednesday!

Irish Eyes

When Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, 'tis like the morn in Spring.
In the lilt of Irish laughter
You can hear the angels sing.
When Irish hearts are happy,
All the world seems bright and gay.
And when Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, they steal your heart away.

One of my favorites:)
Happy St. Patrick's day! We're planning on celebrating all day! Can't deny that Irish heritage! Oh and only one more day till the weekend!
Here I come Guiness, soda bread, corned beef and potatoes!

This has got to be mine soon! I am obsessed with it! Really...I have been wanting to get a new camera for awhile. I have a wonderful little point and shoot (a pink one hah!) that I love but I want one that: obviously takes better quality pictures and one that I can use for bigger things like my baby girl's birthday shoots and such. This one has definitely caught my eye and has held on! It makes the others look so boring:) Anyone know about Pentax? They have pretty good reviews online but I don't know a single person who owns one!

My mom is a Nikon believer from way back so I am wondering if it is smart to veer away from that?

A little inspiration for your Wednesday!

Ok...I LOVE this tiny little federal mirror! I just had to get that out there! I can't think of anything else in this picture until I point that out! Moving on...Laurel at Abode Love, as featured on Made by Girl, shared pictures of her house! I must say, she has talent! The three things I loved most though were obviously the tiny federal mirror mixed in with the photo wall. I am a huge, HUGE fan of photo walls that aren't all pictures, as silly as that sounds! I like the mixture of prints, photos, mirrors, deer heads, (What? No deer heads? Even the ones made of resin? I can't get over them...I still love them!) Anyway, a mix of things in a photo collage makes all the difference in interest level if you ask me!
I also love this! Which is a total contradiction to what I just said. But to me this is different! Sometimes people go all b&w and black frames and it can get a little funky to me if the pictures are all people and such. That's not to say that it isn't totally awesome in some cases...maybe this is a judge it when you see it thing? I think what draws me to this particular collage is the fact that the frames are a mix of vertical and horizontal, but it all works out to still be a square set. I like that! The interest is in the way the frames are hung and the pictures in them. Such a cool idea!
This last picture just floors me! I can't get over the seamless integration of the football print! This is by far the coolest man cave ever! In a girl's opinion:) I also like the subtle tiger hints like the pillow...so cute!

So that's whats inspiring me this week...that and this nice Spring weather we are having! I am quite ready for Spring and Summer this year! Happy Wednesday!

New View

I already posted about this nursery once and about how much I love it! The thing is, I only had the top picture to gush over! I have since found the bottom picture of the other side of the room and it is all I can do not to go into AvaKate's room, pull everything out and start over (again...for the third time...can you tell I like to change things up in there?) The thing is I have this issue with thinking I am loving something and committing to it and then changing my mind afterwords. It's a bad deal;) Although it keeps things hopping around here!
My hubby never comes home to the same set up for more than a week! I am always rearranging or adding or changing!

Ok wow this post totally went off topic here. I was talking about my love for this nursery! I think that what appeals most to me about it is that I can see taking this color scheme and the subtle hints of nature and applying it to a living room or a bedroom. It would work in any room in your house! That makes me happy! I am loving the gray and yellow these days anyway and I was thinking about using it in our bedroom. Navy blue and yellow is a possibility too, although not as subtle. This nursery definitely supports that plan either way!

Happy Wednesday!
