Things I think I LOVE!!

Wow!  That was quite a break I took.  I had planned to post last week but my sister is visiting from Georgia and I got caught up in family time.  #sorrynotsorry.  It was so fun to catch up. 

I'm back today with another Things I think I LOVE! 

1. Watch - I have worn the same watch for years.  I have tried different styles and it never fails I go back to the same one.  For $15 you can't go wrong!

2. Chair - I have lived in my current house for 4 years (already?! how did that happen?) and I am still working on furnishing all the rooms.  We went from a smallish apartment to a nice sized house.  So we are slowly but surely remodeling.  We're trying to finish one room at a time, but right now we have about 4 areas torn apart.  Ha.  I guess we'll just get it all done at the same time.

When I saw this chair I knew I wanted it for somewhere.  I am just not sure where yet.  Maybe in the (future) library by the fireplace, or in the living room.  Maybe I'll get 2 and make a little reading area in the bedroom.  I'm not sure yet.  But I'm pretty sure I love it. 

3. Cabinet pull - So the kitchen is definitely on the remodel list.  I'm hoping to do a phase 1 renovation next year.  Eventually we are planning to add on and make the kitchen much larger.  But for now it just needs to be not ugly (which it currently is) and more functional.  We are going to add a drop zone by the back door and refinish the cabinets.  I am loving this pull.  It goes with the industrial rustic look I am going for.  

4. Sweatshirt - I have been in a funk lately.  I kind of gave up on looking nice when I am at home.  So to get back to feeling good (and looking better) I have been trying to find cute, comfy clothes.  Out with oversized t-shirts and sweatpants.  This sweatshirt will be perfect for cool summer nights and will really get its use come fall.  I love the stripes and raglan detail.  Pair it with yoga pants or leggings and you're all set!

That's all I have for today.  What do you think you love??

Things I think I LOVE

Happy Monday everyone!

Did you all watch the Royal wedding?  I feel like it was all I heard about for the past few weeks.  I didn't get up to watch it, but I did check out all the highlights online.  It looks like it was an amazing day.  Congrats to the newlyweds!

As I have before, today I am sharing things that have been on my mind(or in my shopping cart) lately.  Here are a few things that I'm pretty sure I love :)

1. Essential oil bracelet - Nate gave me this bracelet for Christmas last year (along with these oils).  I have been wearing it ever since!  I love the simple band and the changeable felt pads.  I am really loving the orange oil right now.  I am kind of stuck between that and the lavender.  Both are so nice.  

2. Pool Floats - with Memorial day weekend coming up I have been thinking about getting the pool summer ready.  We try to get it opened earlier in May so we can use it come Memorial day but this year has been a bit crazy.  Between life and the rain it just hasn't happened yet.  So we are going to hopefully get it opened up this weekend.  I will definitely need something new to float around on!  I am thinking this or this. What do you think??

3.  Accent wall - I have been brainstorming for a client of mine.  I am loving a stacked slate look.  I think it gives a nice rustic feel without being more wood in a space that already has plenty!  I am thinking slate on the wall with a light painted console table in front (maybe this??).  

4. Headboard - I have been trying to find the perfect headboard for our new kings sized bed.  I actually drew one that Nate was going to make for me out of walnut.  But, this one is so close to the style that I was going for.  I might end up buying this instead!  I'll keep you posted.

That's all I have for this time.  What are you loving??

Sweet Tea

Happy Friday Friends!  

Sweet tea just screams summer to me.  I always start to crave it as soon as the weather turns warm.  Last week I pulled out my favorite (and super easy) recipe and made a pitcher.  This is seriously the easiest recipe.  With only 3 ingredients that you can keep on hand, it is so quick to make. 

Do you have a favorite summer drink?  Give this sweet tea a try!

Things I think I LOVE

Hello, hello!!

Today I am sharing things that have been on my mind(or in my shopping cart) lately.  Here are a few things that I'm pretty sure I love :)

1.  Duvet cover - We just upgraded from a queen bed to a new king sized bed.  So that means I got to get all new bedding!  I wanted something that is calming and relaxing but still has a pop to it.  This duvet cover fit that bill perfectly.  I love that it's 100% cotton but has a linen-y look to it.  Now I just have to find new pillows and throws to accent.

2.  Maxi skirt - Last summer I was visiting my sister and she was wearing a maxi skirt.  I never thought I could pull something like this off but after seeing her in one I had to have one too!  Is that typical little sister behavior or what?!

3.  Sweet Tea - It is finally starting to feel like spring here in Pennsylvania.  It put me in the mood for a nice glass of sweet tea.  I broke out my trusty recipe and made a pitcher.  I'll share the recipe later this week for you!  It's so easy and I love that I can control how much sugar I am putting into it.  Not that I'm a health freak or anything,  I just like to know what is in my food and drinks :)

4.  The Circle Trilogy - Nora Roberts - I am always reading, usually more than one book at a time.  In fact right now I have 3 books going.  Nate thinks I'm crazy but I like to have a book wherever I happen to be.  One in the living room, one on my nightstand, etc.  Right now I am loving the Circle Trilogy by Nora Roberts.  It's the right mix of adventure, fantasy, and romance.  I highly recommend it.

That's all I have for today.  What are a few things you love?

1st Post

Wow! Blog post #1. 

Hi there. 

I’m Heather.

I love all things design.  

I am a kitchen designer by day and a home renovator, crafter and amateur baker by night.  I hope to share all of that with you (whoever you are).  

I follow quite a few blogs so I thought I would give it a try for myself.  I've been thinking about it for awhile so it is time to take the plunge.  

I have a lot of ideas for projects floating around my head.  Now I have a reason to actually work on some of them, and a place to document it all! 

I’ll throw in a few stories about the crazy shenanigans my husband and I get into along the way.  And pictures of my silly pup, Chester. 

Pupper in pj's :)

Come back again soon for my first project!
