I turned the camera on and pressed record before Kriste and I even knew what we were going to talk about.  Kriste suggested something spring-related.  Something about flowers...  I chimed in, "Let's talk about succulents." So, that's what we rambled about this week... (In case you haven't been watching to the end of the videos, I've been putting the "bloopers" at the end instead of in a  (read more …)

Good evening, all!  Unfortunately, I'm feeling a bit under the weather tonight.  I'm not sure if it's just a headache or if I'm finally succumbing to the illness that my boys had last weekend.  Either way, I'm hitting the sack early tonight and didn't have a chance to pick favorites from last week.  I look forward to browsing through all of the amazing links posted here this week, though.  Kriste  (read more …)

I made a few updates in the boy's room over the weekend.  All three of my boys (including Jeff) have been sick, so I've been playing nurse most of the time, but Sunday afternoon was so beautiful and the sunshine and warm weather gave me a boost of energy.  I threw open the windows, so my "patients" could benefit from it as well after hanging out under blankets in dark rooms for a couple of days.  (read more …)

We had a beautiful sunny weekend that was warm with a cool breeze and it put me in the mood to freshen up a few things around the house.  (I would've loved to go on a hike or have a picnic at a playground, but the Parsons' boys were all sick, so my "playtime" had to be around the house.)  Anyway, I don't really decorate for the seasons, but I do like changing around accessories and decor to suit  (read more …)

 When I was out shopping for the upcoming Lucketts Spring Market last week, I was looking for artwork for my living room as well.  I was really hoping for a pair of charming paintings, but I didn't have any luck.  I did find two vintage Currier & Ives prints, though.  They were sweet farmhouse scenes and I thought they would work well with a new frame and mat.  The frames they were in looked a  (read more …)

swapping chairs

Sooo...I've been know to rearrange, trade and swap furniture in my house.  I've always done that, but it's so much more tempting (and easier) when I have a steady stream of awesome furniture coming into my possession as I'm getting ready for an upcoming antique market.  Sometimes I need to love a piece for a while before I send it off into the world.  There are other times when I trip across  (read more …)

design ramblings | episode 17 | jessica’s canopy bed

emilyaclarkbed

In this episode of Design Ramblings, Kriste and I decided to answer a viewer's question about her space.  Specifically, she's stumped with what to hang on the wall behind her canopy bed. (At the end of the video, in the bloopers, I'm doing an impression of my friend Shaunna from Perfectly Imperfect.  Just an FYI.) As I was editing the video and looking for some examples of decorating around  (read more …)

I had this post scheduled to go live last Thursday and I didn't realize until a few days ago that it never posted!  Something funky happened with WordPress, but it was a holiday weekend anyway, so it worked out well.    Since last week was really busy, I asked Kriste to pick favorites.  (It's also nice to get a fresh perspective, since I always gravitate towards the same things!)  Here she  (read more …)
