Leopard Love

With little effort I found leopard print on nearly all of my favorite fashion blogs, and many non-fashion blogs as well. I've never fancied myself as a leopard print gal, I can handle the trendy motif in subtle doses, but maybe there's something to it.

Oversize leopard might be my way to go.

Craving this vintage looking jacket.

Love the subtlety and abstractness of this fabulous leopard.

Be Excited, be very excited!

One of my closest and most talented friends, Michelle, from M.A. Belle, has a very special treat for the entire world wide web. In September, Michelle and her photography partner, Patrick Cline will launch the premier issue of their new online shelter magazine. This exciting issue will feature some of our favorites in the blogging and decorating worlds. I was lucky enough to get a super-duper sneak preview and ya'll should be very excited.


Don't want summer to be over, but is it September yet?

Telephone Table Makeover

After seeing a couple telephone table make-overs on Design*Sponge, I told my mom to keep her eye out for one during her flea market/garage sale excursions, little did I know that she would surprise me with this craigslist gem for Christmas! It needed a little love, so I gave it a few coats of white high gloss spray paint to modernize it, reupholstered the back in Rubie Green Jackie Print and the seat in bamboo print fabric and voila!

After

It fits perfectly next to my front door as my pint size entryway and works multi-functionally as a place to throw my mail and bag as well as a bench to tie my sneakers as I run out the door.

Thanks Mom and Michelle!
