Best of the Week

What a week! I’ve feel like a whole year has passed. Really, it’s just a lot of life happening all at once. That’s life though, right? The ups, the downs, and everything in between. As the young Indian hotel clerk says in the trail for The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel: “Everything will work out in the end. If it hasn’t worked out, it’s not the end.”

This week:


I was really inspired by this great mood board from fellow Charlotte design blogger, Andrea. She is a designer and DIYer who moved here recently, like me. Check out her cool projects and inspiration on her blog, SpaceSays.



Caitlin Wilson Textiles.


Surfing through some links on Laura Casey Interiors, I discovered this link to Caitlin Wilson Textiles. I’d never heard of this star design blogger but I was delighted to discover her new line of textiles! They are so beautiful and the blue, pink, and linen colored chinoiserie inspired floral gave me ideas for a great living room scheme. A complete set of swatches is available for $20 and comes prettily packaged in a beautiful pink box.

I finished my lamps here, read the YA bestseller The Hunger Games, and tested out a new Android app called Eggdrop with much success.

I also want to take a moment to say something about SOPA, the Stop Online Piracy Act. This is a bill that will effect every blogger out there. See this great post about what the bill means for you and me. Sign a petition, call your reps, and get the word out to your readers and fellow bloggers! This is OUR internet.

Have a great holiday weekend everyone! See you next week!

Reading Room: The Hunger Games


I bought this over the weekend and started reading it just two short days ago… and I’m hooked! This book is pretty gripping considering how simply it’s written. I like the characters and I want to see them succeed. I don’t want to give anything away, so I’m not going to talk about the plot. Just go pick up a copy, if you haven’t already, and give it chance. It is good stuff.

On a side note: Does anyone besides me have that “now that I’m older, I don’t read as much as I used to” anxiety? Or is that just me. When I cracked open this book, I felt what like what that first gulp of water tastes like after you haven’t had one for a while. Quenching. Got to get to the library/bookstore more.

Sorry for late posting! Going to try to hit it earlier tomorrow… See you all then!
