So I’ve decided to put some real focus on this house and energy into making it a home we love. And the positive thing will be, once we do that it will be ready if we did want to sell in the future. But in the day to day, we can come home to a place we enjoy!
Hopefully if I have the guts I will share some photos with you!!! Yikes.
I already have a list brewing in my head, so many things to do. I'm a woman with a mission!!!

But this morning I stumbled upon Chris Brown (the designer/stylist/collector) of Urban Prairie.
And I'm so glad I did. I really am not a country kind of girl, but he is so far from what I normally think of country. He loves vintage and found objects, making something beautiful out of unloved objects, it’s edgy, raw, mixed with white roses and lace, and topped off with an urban feel. I LIKE IT… I REALLY LIKE IT!!!
You can read his personal blog called URBAN PRAIRIE REFUELED OR his website URBAN PRAIRIE .
So glad to have stumbled upon you Chris………thanks to Artsy Mama!
(I know ladies... sorry he's very taken)

You would think it's the simple-ist thing in the world to do. But geezz my stitches are crooked. And I had to hand stitch the knots, because this cheapy doesn't backstitch. But I still love my pillow. I also used the tablerunner along the back of the couch! It looks soo summery!!!
Here's the old pillow that gave up its stuffin..........
and the super cheapo sewing machine
Here it is........napkins turned pillow!
with the table runner draped across the sofa!
It was great practice and I had fun doing it. But until I take some sewing lessons, I think I am just going to order some real already made pillows from Cyril!!!

........this sweet little crocheted hat for my girl..........made by Lullabylamb! And the best part is those flowers are barretts that can be removed from the hat and worn alone!!! She better wear this hat......or I will! (ok not really) But it's just too pretty!
(pic is from her etsy shop)
And I've saved the best for last......... I placed an order with Cyrille Gulassa who I posted about not too long ago. And I will try to not go on and on, but it was just how an order should arrive, in every way. It was packaged so lovely, with ribbons and stickers and a personalized note. Neatly, and with care!!! I took a few quick photos, because I couldn't resist!
This is a summer poppy tote, another green poppy tote, table runner and napkins in summer poppy and a CG pendant below.
And her business cards are just beautiful as well!!
I can't wait for her Fall/ Winter stuff.... I'll definitely be back for more!!
Visit her site and download her catalog!

We had a great time, spent lots of hot days on the beach! I'm very relaxed and ready to get back into the swing of things.
