House of Fifty Summer 2011 Edition

Have you seen the latest E-Zine by Janell at Isabella & Max Rooms? It's called House of Fifty. I read about it on Emily's blog, Jones Design Company. Check it out for some lovely eye candy and organizational ideas!

"There's always going to be bad stuff out there. But here's the amazing thing -- light trumps darkness, every time. You stick a candle into the dark, but you can't stick the dark into the light."

That's where the Hubby and I will be all day Saturday. So excited for the Real Ale Festival. Cheers!

Happy Mothers Day!

We are celebrating Mothers Day by having brunch with the Hubby's fam and then dinner with mine. I will be making Strawberry Shortcake for my Mom with fresh ingredients from the Farmers Market. How are you spending your Mothers Day?


Mint Julep anyone?


One of the things I'm coveting lately is classic mint julep cups.  I really want one...or a set of four. I have seen mint julep cups used as vases in many well designed rooms. A vintage sterling silver julep cup is very expensive (think $350+ yikes!). But Pottery Barn just came out with a silver plated julep cup for $24! I love it monogrammed. I would like to find a home for you in our master bedroom with fresh flowers.

All this mint julep talk has gotten me so excited for the horse races. I can't believe I have never been to Preakness when I live so close! Maybe next year. I also just want an excuse to dress up in Lilly with a big floppy hat. I can't help myself. Happy Derby Day Everyone!


Happy Cinco de Mayo!

I plan on getting some Crab Nachos and a Hubcap Margarita with friends at Nacho Mama's in Canton tonight. Enjoy and be safe!

IKEA Delivery!

Here is a peak of what our living room in our new apartment looked like after our IKEA delivery. This was before the movers came with all of our existing furniture and boxes. The Hubby has had his work cut out for him. All we have left to put together are the eight dining room chairs! Hooray! Hopefully we will find some time for that this weekend.
