Hello and welcome back sweet old & old friends. I cant believe Im about to share this photo with you all. It's the nitty gritty peek into my home right now. A work in progress as I like to call it. I've been so busy with "re-doing" my son's big boy room that EVERYTHING is getting moved around including my work space. EEEEEK!!!! Here it goes!
Welcome to the dining room. A far cry from the once glamourous froofed room that was once featured. It has now become my temporary "work space".
Yes ladies, this is where I spend majority of my time for now. It's driving me insane how cluttered and unorganized it is, but hopefully by the end of October this room will be PERFECT & PRETTY again. I have a special Aussie friend comming to visit and MAYBE a photo shoot for a FABULOUS magazine that will take place mid November to early December. (wink* wink*)
I thought I would give you all a sneak peek of my son's room. It's NO WHERE finished, but it will give you an idea of what it looks like. Im now working on window treatments, new ceiling fan, and the FUN part……scouring for all the sweet and unique pieces to decorate his room. The theme is vintage seaside nautical.
I just LOVE this room! It's huge and is full of natural light!
How SWEET are these vintage books??? Of course I think they are cute to look at but he's is more interested in his Thomas the Train books or anything that has to do with race cars!
This is just a lookie of what the room looks like so far. It's still a work in progress, but I really LOVE and ADORE how it has turned out so far, and what's even more important Grant loves it! He loves his new comfy bed more than anything!
Amongst all this busyness I made a little time for a Pre Silver Bella swap hosted by the lovely Miss Karla of Karla's Cottage. What a FABULOUS group of gals to swap with! The ladies were Jessi, Kim,Holly,Heather,Natasha,Analise,Cheryl,Carol,Tiffany,Andrea,Cheryl, and ME! We decided to swap pretty materials to use for our projects and creations.
I literally felt like it was Christmas morning with this box of gorgeous goodies!
Inside these sweet little packages are the most precious lovelies of ribbon, lace,wallpaper,buttons,millinery,pretty papers,velvet, and yummy bath salts!
Thank you SO SO much ladies for ALL the fabulous materials! I cant wait to use them in my future projects, and most of all cant WAIT to see you ALL at SILVER BELLA!!!! Im counting the days!!!
I have a good friend that I want you to meet. Her name is Suzanne. She is sweet, lovely, and super special to me. I met her about two years ago here in Macon. However, it's really been the past year that we've grown super close. Our little boys are close in age and they love to play together. Here they are giving sweet hugs!
We both are not from Macon and I kinda think that's why we bonded so well. We are from larger cities and she is an artist, painter, photographer,and interior designer. We both met and just kinda "got" each other right away. Suzanne is a stay at home mom, but does Interior design work on the side. She wanted to be at home with her son but still pursue her love of painting and photography and make a little extra money while doing it. So I turned her on to Etsy. With a little help and encouragement she finally opened her shop called Italian Girl in Georgia and has been featured in COUNTLESS treasuries. I than encouraged her to get a Flickr account AND with lots of persuasion convinced her to create a blog. I would like to share with you a few of my favorite photographs that Suzanne has taken. GORGEOUS and STUNNING work!
This is one of Suzanne's paintings. I LOVE the beautiful fun bright happy colors she uses.
When you get a sec, pop on over and say "Hi, Jenn sent me." 😉 I know she would enjoy the visit!
I would like to give a special birthday shout out to someone SUPER SPECIAL to me!!!! Happy Birthday Miss Natasha!!!!
