Happy Friday!

Happy Friday everyone!  I'm going to use the weekend to tackle a home improvment project, namely replacing the tile floor in our back entryway!  Don't worry, it's not as big a job as it sounds.  I hope you all enjoy fine weather and plenty of lounge around time as you unwind this weekend.  See you Monday!

Don't you wish you had this pretty robe to lazy about in?  Get it here.

Nicely Nautical

On Tuesday I saw the first sail boats back on Lake Calhoune.  They were there again yesterday too!  It's a lovely sign that the lake is thawed and no matter what the weather man says spring is here to stay.   I absolutely love watching the sailboats all summer on our little city lake.   It makes me feel like I'm living on the coast!  A few people close to me could tell you that I hate only seeing the ocean every few years (I'm over-due!  It's been like 5 years now!) and that's why I've got a soft spot for beachy and nautical decor.  I'm not talking cheesy, light house motif or sea shell themes.  I think when it's done right, you walk in a room and think, "oh, this room reminds me of the sea side." without any obvious symbols jumping out at you.  Here are a few nautical interiors I think got it right.

This is really similar to the look of my room, very calm with cool neutrals.  Source

Happy Monday + Kickstarter Success!!!

Hey guys!  Boy, even though I'm fighting a really bad sore throat I am so happy right now because my Kickstarter reached it's goal on the first weekend!  Not only reached it's goal but surpassed it!  I can't believe that in just 4 days over $1200 was pledged!  I am truly touched, amazed, & excited!  There are still 25 days to go before the deadline and I'm hoping that we'll still raise even more!  (i.e. keep spreading the word!)  It's just so great because now I will be able to buy material and hire models and money raise over the goal will allow me to advertise & promote the line so much better!   I'm so grateful for everyone's generosity!!!!  Thanks so much!
