Afternoon Tea

Why is it that little girls are the only Americans who get to have tea parties?
They're just so charming.
The thought of getting together with friends in the afternoon makes me smile.
Maybe I'll have to start having some of my own...

Light Library

Generally, Libraries have a dark, cozy, deep feeling to them.  Very collegiate.  I really love it!  But when I saw this library, I was really intrigued.
White walls.  White doors.  White chandelier.  White flowers. White, cream, and beige books and decorations.
  Yes, there are a few brown accents like the rug, the tables, the pictures, and a few of the figurines, but for the most part, this room is very light.  However, it still feels rather cozy. I'm diggin it!

The Thinking Spot

I saw this on {Sisters' Stuff} and thought it was a great alternative to the "Naughty Spot".  I think any sort of positive twist on punishment is a good thing.  By using the word "thinking" instead of "naughty", the child being punished isn't a naughty child, they just did something naughty and need to sit and think about it.  The "Thinking Spot" name also encourages them to think about what they did and why it was not ok.  Love this idea.

Autumn Rust

I just love this understated Autumn display I saw on
It's so pretty!  The rust colored hydrangeas, the rusty clock, the rusty bird.  It embodies what I love most about Autumn.

Glamorous White Kitchens

Love these beautiful white kitchens!
Pretty blue walls, pretty white marble, REALLY pretty wood island, love it.
Love the hood, and the hugeness of the island in this one.  Also, loving that bookshelf on the end and all the copper.
Another pretty white kitchen with a great wood island.  Really love that combo.  I also REALLY like how the hood has a shelf on it.  Sort of like a mantle.  Great for decorating!
Pretty chandeliers.  Again, another dark wood island.  Very pretty.
Love how there is a wall of windows in front of the sink.
This one is so gorgeous!  I really like the all around dark countertops and deep wood floors mixed with the white countertops.  It sings!!  Love the huge island, too.  So pretty.
Pretty little sinks.  Pretty little flowers.
Of course, the Lettered Cottage kitchen is included in here.  SO pretty.
Loving those stools.  I really like mixing the white with the wood.
Gorgeous kitchens!

ABC Wall

I posted about a wall like this a while ago, {here}
It's such a cute idea!!
I love all the different letters - some are pretty creative.  Like the "I" and the "M".  I especially love the "&" stuck to the "Z".  Such a cute idea for a playroom!!!  Love it.

the Jones's Nursery

I LOVE this beautiful room from {Jones Design Company}
This shelf as you walk in the room is perfect in and of itself.  That magnolia branch, the letter "A", the grey color, the framed flower art...ahh, I just love the way it all looks!
This space would work for any age, but it's her daughter's nursery.  Love those tiny shoes on display and the pretty flowers.  And what a cute way to display books, tied with a ribbon like that!
Such a cute pillow on that chair!
Such a sophisticated looking crib!!  And I'm totally in love with that crown of flowers hanging above it!!!
Seriously, such a pretty idea!
The changing table's even sophisticated!  It's all about what you use to store things.
There's also a twin bed in the room, which is so cute as well!
This name frame is SO AMAZINGLY ADORABLE!  And it looks like it's just letters she attached unevenly to burlap and then framed it.  I love the way it looks!!!
Here it is all together.
So pretty!  Pretty much impossible to keep up with these Jones's.
