Enjoy your weekend!I just had to share Jonathan Adler’s idea on how to deconstruct your basic arrangement..spread it out among various vases..wow! now doesn’t that look sooo much better?

While I’m on the topic of Jonathan Alder, I have to share this adorable pillow. I don’t think I can resist it! {available at the end of the month}

Girly Moments..

The “I just had a new baby” fog is finally starting to lift + just in time for the warm weather! Don’t get me wrong things are still crazy,{yoga pants and multiple sweatshirt + long sleeve tee changes are still my daily routine} but I’ve actually starting working here and there. It’s so nice to feel a part of society again! {new Mom’s will know exactly what I am talking about} I’ve also started to think about my daughter’s room. {my frequent readers already know I haven’t had a chance work on Emerson’s nursery, but have so many ideas}, stay tuned for updates..I’ll leave you with a few sweet, girly moments to start your day!

I have loved this room from the moment it was feaured in Domino. {Ashley Stark’s home}I could have used this service yesterday.Images: Pink Wallpaper, Laurie Frankel, Deborah Jaffe, Deborah Jaffe, MoodBoard, Habitually Chic, This is Glamorous, lala lovely things, Design Darling

Currently loving…

my new “hands free” baby sling, {thank you to my dear friend Lauren C.}, it is the only thing allowing me to steal a few minutes to scan the web and post my blog these days {I’m still officially on maternity leave}..here are a few more items on my favorites list this week!

Ines Fressange’s style sense {I’ve actually admired the fashion model’s layered style savvy since seeing her home in the final issue Domino} these images are a great motivator for me to whip myself back into shape.{although I will never look this tiny, I like food too much!} images: The Selby

My chic new diaper bag, from Stella McCartney’s line for Adidas. {it’s not actually a diaper bag, I think that’s why I like it sooo much!}


Today’s post on Fric and Frac. Every image lifted my spirits. I keep reminding myself that Spring is around the corner!


{i would switch out the bulbs for a round style}

All the goodies on Fyndes…these are a few of the items that would work at my house right now. Style Court initially brought my attention to this fabulous site full of vintage {some are actually affordable} finds…

Hope you are having a great day!

Nursery Update..

Hello, Hello, sorry about the lack of posts, I’m doing everything I can do stay sane on about three hours of sleep a night..My poor new baby has really bad acid reflux, so she never sleeps much!! I am going to start on her nursery at some point this month! Remember I was going to hang a collage of quirky boat artwork on the wall if I had a baby boy? Well I’ve decided to do the same with my “enchanted forest theme” {bunnies and deer} for Emerson’s room. Here’s a few of the pieces that could work..As I said I want the room and the art to feel as if it’s evolved! I don’t think any room should be “too perfect” because then it feels over designed to me! Oh and if you have any tips for an uncomfortable baby please feel free to send them my way!! Peace out for now. – Julie
