Before 2015 ends...

....maybe I should say HI. Yes I left, and I've had lots of great intentions of coming back. To tell a funny story and share a cute photo, to share decorating dreams and inspirations. But what I really need to tell you is that raising three little people is tough. And I used to use the excuse that I had a newborn that kept my hands occupied... but that is no longer true. In fact my little baby was 10 months old yesturday! 10 MONTHS! As in, two more months and our little Archer-boo will be ONE YEAR OLD! So before that happens and another year passes by, I just want to say hi. And wish you and your family a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Eclectic Chic Dining Room-Chairish Mix n' Chic Challenge

I am constantly dreaming about making our space pretty-practical and comfortable but still appealing to the eye. As of right now my style is an eclectic blend of traditional and vintage, with a heavy dose of toys.


There's really nothing I can do about that right now. Those bright blue, yellow and red plastic things just keep popping up!

So I dream....and dream...and rearrange, and scour the internet for inspiration, I thrift my way through antique markets and second hand stores and just dream. I love the way that adding in an item that has a story makes a room feel complete and real. It just gives it some depth and love, you know? Weathered wood, galvanized metal, rustic signs, crates...all the goodness of Shabby Chic!

When Chairish contacted me to take part in their Mix n' Chic challenge I knew this was the perfect chance to put my dreaming onto paper! If you've never heard of Chairish-shame on you! Chairish is an exclusive, curator approved, online marketplace for vintage and used furniture. Most styles go in and out of fashion, however; the Shabby Chic-ness of antiques and vintage items has continuously been a decor focus for the last 25 years; The spirit of the style is to work with what you have while mixing in historical elements and pieces with charm. The best part about decorating these days is that the matching look is out - the new look is all about creating a room that seamlessly blends a variety of styles., and that is my style to a tee!
