Not only is Pretty In Pink one of my favorite movies....its one of my favorite colors! If its done right....then it brings such happiness to a room (and it makes you look younger). If its done wrong...then it looks like Pepto Bismol!...and did ya notice, I changed the music to the Pretty In Pink soundtrack?....all you 80's girls will understand my sick obsession.

I heart Etsy!.....Greens continued

I love greens so much that I just need to do one more post! Here are a few items from Etsy sellers that will add a touch of whimsy to your space. I love the "keep calm and carry on" posters that cutpasteprint sells. You can get them in about any color and they look great framed in white. The little clay houses look so cute sitting in plants, they are sold by The Little Red Door.
I love modern chairs!!!!...the embroidered chair is by Byrd and Belle. I LOVE paintings of houses.....the one above is an original by Tangled Skye Studios.

I have been day dreaming all morning...if I win...where will I hang them? And of coarse, in the dream, George Clooney is hanging them for me {{sigh}}}. OK....back to reality! Be sure to check out her Etsy shop...her artwork is just adorable...and even if I don't win...I'm buying one anyway. Thanks Tollipop!

Oh! This is just Heaven!!!!!!!!!!!!

SchubLaden (meaning drawers) is a company in Germany that makes new furniture using old drawers. Are these not to die for? I am so on the lookout for old drawers now. I am determined to find a way to make this myself.
