I Am Insane For Painted Floors!

My friend Melanie has bought a home that was in need of some serious lovin! Although it has original wood floors,  stains would just not go away so bright white gloss paint has been applied and magic has happened.
Here are more floor inspirations:

Flea Market Find!

We have a large curved sectional in our media room so I have been looking for the perfect ottoman that everybody can prop their feet on...and boy did I find it:

It is large and in charge!

Other finds:
This is what happens when you buy the largest ottoman ever and your friend is driving a volvo station wagon with 2 kids in the back seat...everybody sits up front!

Hobby Lobby...Go Figure

I am insane for a Trip Trumeau chest of drawers
It would be so perfect in my dining room but it is way out of my league. So I'm walking through Hobby Lobby yesterday getting picture frames to put prom pics in and I come across these:
Now I realize this is not even remotely close to the real deal but still super cute and on sale.

I'm Sick and It's Raining Cats and Dogs!

This is absolutely the day where I will stay in bed, watch movies, and fantasize about the perfect space to do those activities.

Somewhere dark

 And of course the bed would be piled high with pillows

Maybe I need light and bright to cheer me up

It always makes you feel better to soak in the tub when you have a cold...this space will do
I will need access to some books

Here's to feeling better!

It's like Christmas morning in the Crochet house. The last appliance to be if I just had new floors, counter tops, and cabinets.......A girl can dream.
Here are some of my dream kitchens:

The GW table got a makeover!

It now has a home in Brandy's house..

Beau Does Not Like Wind!

Last night we had 70 mile an hour winds and Beau, the greatest great dane mix in the universe, did not like it and ended up in my closet. Spending so much time in there trying to get him out made me think about, if I could have my dream closet, what would it look like.
Maybe it would look like Jenna Lyons closet
or something with doors

It would definitely have wallpaper.
and mirrors and appropriate lighting
or a nice place to sit
The most important thing though is adequate storage and organization.
Any of these closets would  work as a storm shelter for Beau.

I Am Insane For Tori Burch!

I just found out that Nashville is getting a Tori Burch store! I think she is amazing and if I was to vacation in the Hamptons, I know we would be BFF's.

I Love Letters!

As I was walking through my house and putting laundry away, I realized that I have may have a problem collecting oversized letters. But I love them!
1. Dining Room: This one, once upon a time, had the ability to light up, which makes it extra cool.
2. This one is in our narrow back staircase so it's hard to get the right angle but the color is amazing.
3. This one is super shiny and chunky and it's in my daughter Emily's room. I think the industrial letter with the over the top mirror is a good combo.
 4. This one is also in Emily's room. The stainless with the black edge is perfect for her room.

Nobody uses letters in their home like the Novogratz's


or Jenna Lyons

So maybe I'm on to something...
