Didn't Work For These Feet...But Maybe You?

 When I saw these sandals it was love at first sight....
But sadly they didn't fit (run large and ankle strap is too big).  I am posting them here though because I still really love them (they are actually blue in color) so I want someone to have them!  Also, can't find these in my size....but if I do then maybe they can help ease the pain of losing the ones above.

She Does Not Disappoint

 I have been lucky enough to meet Suzanne Kasler a couple of times, the first in New York, the second in High Point.  Such a pleasure given I am a long time admirer and huge fan of her work.  Her client homes never disappoint so I knew I was in for a treat when Architectural Digest showcased her personal home.  Needless to say, the house is a gem.
 Those windows....

Free Flowing

I had these three images on my desktop but I can't remember why.... I am sure it will come to me at some point.  Anyhoo, in the meantime I thought they made for a great Friday post.

Rug To Pillow

 Do you all remember this bedroom?  Or more precisely the bolster pillow?
The pillow is actually the rug they bought for the room sewn into a bolster.  While beautiful, this room certainly is not a stranger to the blog world so why show it today?  Because, for those of you in Birmingham I saw these rugs at Home Goods on 280 yesterday and I thought they could be perfect for just such a project....
Happy hunting!

Quiet Time

Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble,
and he brought them out of their distress.
He stilled the storm to a whisper;
the waves of the sea were hushed.
They were glad when it grew calm,
and he guided them to their desired haven.  
Psalm 107:28-30

This past week Henry had a horrible fall while he was with me.  He is perfectly fine but I don't know that I will ever fully recover.  I am so, so, so thankful for God's grace and everyone around me who He worked through to bring us comfort.

Strie Tile

I have liked the look of this tile for a while now but have not had a chance to use it yet.  I would love to hear from you if you have!  Also think I like the wood plank look too....I think.....thoughts?

Quiet Time

We would rather be ruined than changed;
We would rather die in our dread
Than climb the cross of the moment
And let our illusions die.

-W.H. Auden

I read this recently and it has been haunting me ever since, powerful words I think.

Filing It Away

Filing this picture away under "fireplace screen inspiration".   Love.
Somehow I don't think this would be a good option for me currently with a 6 month old ready to take off.  Oh, and that's right, I don't have a fireplace in this house anyways, grrrr.

But one fine day....

Built In Sconces

 I am dreaming of a new bed.  Not sure when that will happen but I am seriously considering having sconces built into the headboard.  
I don't have the sources for these pictures, anyone know?
