If you love design I recommend checking out Anna Spiro's Absolutely Beautiful Things. It is not just a pretty coffee table book that will gather dust. I thought it was really inspiring and informative. I loved reading Anna's story. Furbish is the only place in the U.S. carrying the book. I would scoop it up fast, I have a feeling they will not last long.
I have pretty much the best excuse ever for a blog hiatus. I was very busy giving birth to a human and trying to keep him alive for the past 6 weeks. Kind of a big deal. Luckily, we have had tons of help. Grandparents who drop everything and friends who keep us fed. We made it to the one month mark ( a little late hitting publish, we are at 7 weeks now)
This Saturday one of my favorite friends is having a yard sale, if you even want to call it that. It is legit. Allison is a very talented designer with great taste and it looks more like a boutique than a yard sale. I got a few pictures of what to expect.
There is a going to be a little bit of everything! Furniture, lighting, tabletop and clothes.
It has been a while since I shared updates happening in our house. I found this old secretary at an estate sale and have had a lot of fun dressing it up. If you are on the hunt for ginger jars, OKL has a great chinoiserie sale going on now!
This is my favorite time of year for flowers at the Farmer's Market. We went last weekend and there was a new flower vendor that was set up in the parking lot. They had the largest bouquets I have ever seen.
I love the laid back look of this lumbar pillow from Furbish. I have completely accepted that everything in my house is going to be blue and white.
I am slowly working on a nursery. Blue toile and Robert Allen gingham are the sweetest pair.
I have hit the 30 week mark and am doing my best to try and document more of my pregnancy. It just hit me I only have a short time left. I want to remember this. I never thought I would take pictures of my growing belly, but now I am starting to really wish I would have embraced it more.
My friends sent out the most adorable shower invites I have ever seen.
My pregnancy uniform. I have lived in this Storq dress.
We are finishing up a couple of houses at work. This one is going on the market in the next month or so. I really want to just put carrara marble everywhere. It is becoming a problem.
I am obsessed with penny rounds. Ignore my swollen feet.
I still have this 17'' federal mirror for sale. Email me if you are interested firstname.lastname@example.org
My master bedroom is getting a makeover...
We got a king bed. My life is complete. I ended up ordering linens from Zara Home. I am still on the hunt for a headboard. Recommendations for upholstered headboards are welcome.

It is a little bit country and a little bit granny. The price point is incredible. All in all, this is probably the most exciting Target collab I have seen. If you are not familiar with the duo that is Tilton Fenwick, I highly suggest you check out their portfolio.
We are in the process of redoing our master so I am particularly infatuated with the headboards. Doug vetoed pink floral already.
If crazy patterns are not your thing, they have some great solid options.
