Weeked Recap

I spent time styling my NEW coffee table. First piece of furniture in our home that is not from Craigslist. 
I could get use to making adult purchases. 


Rachel and I went estate sale shopping. It got a little fratty after finding tartan throws. 

Another estate sale find- 12 place settings of pretty blue china. 

I caught Doug giving Hank a haircut. It looks like he used a weedwacker . Any suggestions of a good dog groomer in Raleigh?

Friday Funk

I am in desperate need of the weekend! I do not know what is going on but I have been in a funk. I overslept and was late for work this week. I have piles and piles of laundry. I am super overwhelmed at work. All I want to do is SLEEP.   We still have Christmas decorations sitting in our guest bedroom.  I feel like everything is so chaotic right now. I just want to declutter and start over.
--------------------------------
Currently Craving:

The warm weather here in NC has me itching for a new wardrobe. Classic silhouettes in fun colors from Tibi.




A perfectly organized closet

Kitchen Update

We are currently in limbo. It is going to be 4-6 weeks before we get any cabinets. We have made some changes to our initial plan.  


Doug quickly ruled out a gold faucet. Understandable. I tend to get carried away at times. 
I put up a huge fight for carrera marble. I lost. I am okay with the alternative,  Caesarstone in Raven.
I am madly in love with this new hardware line. It has been all over blog land this week and just in time. I have had a really hard time finding decent brass hardware. 

Thoughts?

Kitchen Renovation: Farmhouse Sinks

Since we have started the renovation I have started to study my favorite kitchens. I  realized they all have one thing in common-- FARMHOUSE SINKS. What are your thoughts? Do you have one? Love or hate?


1/2/3




Ikea $312
Amazon Belle Foret $432
Overstock Fire Clay $712
Kohler $920

Farmhouse sinks are not cheap. Luckily, Ikea has an affordable option for a budget kitchen renovation.
I would love to hear your thoughts on farmhouse sinks! Do you think they are worth it?

Lucite Coffee Tables

I have been on the hunt for an affordable lucite coffee table. I was beginning to think it would never happen. Everything I found was 1k+, which is just not something that is going to happen in the Short household.




I have been stalking this table from Wisteria since I saw it on my friend Kelly's blog.
It is finally on sale and 45% off. Take an extra $100 off with the coupon code:
EFEB100

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day to all the men in my life. 



Doug and I are going to dinner at our favorite restaurant in Raleigh, Mo's Diner for a much needed date night. What are your Valentine's plans?

Weekend Recap

 We started knocking down walls this weekend. I found out I am very efficient with a sledge hammer.

I made a succulent centerpiece. Succulents are hard to kill which makes them my new "go to".
I picked up this adorable bar cart from another blogger in Raleigh.
Sarah and her mom love thrifting and started a blog called, Splash of Lime. She has some great finds at great prices.

Considering...

I am officially over my gallery wall. I have tried and it just will not come together. I have very little patience in the matter.



I am starting to consider calling it quits and replacing it with a huge print from Cozamia.

What are your thoughts? Do yo have a gallery wall? What is the secret?

Tibi Dress Update: Sort of...

We all remember this...
Well my friend Garison just sent me something super similar that popped up on Piperlime.
I have a feeling the dress we are all in love with is a top and maxi combo.  At least this confirms the rumors it is Tibi and hopefully they will be coming out with some more of this print soon.
Update: Found the top and maxi at Bergdorf and it is sold out.

Exciting Stuff

Looks like Domino is going to make a comeback. 
Read about it here.
A special edition issue will hit news stands in April. 


We are getting ready to knock down walls around here which means I have no time to blog. 
Doug and demo is a scary thought.
