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?

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

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.

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?
Amazon Belle Foret $432
Overstock Fire Clay $712
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?

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.
It is finally on sale and 45% off. Take an extra $100 off with the coupon code:

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

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?

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.
