Beautiful watercolors

wcelephant2I was looking at Etsy yesterday and came across The Wildlands shop which listed these watercolors, aren’t they beautiful?  They are perfect for a child’s bedroom.  The colors are vibrant but not overwhelming and they all seem so joyous.  And the prices is right!  I thought they might brighten your day!

My most popular pin

paintI know I’m not the only one addicted to Pinterest.  I think everyone has a secret obsession with it.  I have my phone set up to alert me when someone pins my pins and weirdly, this is the most popular pin.  Guess there are a lot of baby rooms being painted out there…

What are you obsessed with on Pinterest?

The most versatile skirt

skirt

A few years ago my friend Goh turned me on to the cotton stretch pencil skirt.  What’s great about it is that it is slimming and sexy and looks good on everyone. It usually comes in a variety of colors and patterns so you can add some variety and interest to your wardrobe.

What I love most is that I can dress it up with heels and a blouse or dress it down with chucks and a tee and still feel stylish.  I choose skirts that are primarily cotton which makes them cool and comfy and a great alternative to shorts in the summer.

The stretch factor is key because it means I can still sit on the floor, climb over baby gates and chase after my little buggers without worrying about ripping the skirt, it just bounces right back.

I have this one from Old Navy, classic colors here, trendy colors offered here and why not a polka dot pattern or gingham pattern?

What are your go-to pieces this summer?

Cute Halloween footprint art for kids, toddlers and babies. It’s fun to see their foot size grow through art!

Every holiday I like to do footprint art with the kids.  It’s fun to see how their foot size changes through time.  I don’t always get it done but this year I managed to pull off a Halloween craft!

I did the basic footprint (Charlie’s is huge!) with white paint on black paper and then took them and made them into two different decorations.

I have some work to do on my photography but I thought they came out pretty good!

We also managed to carve a pumpkin last night and toast the pumpkin seeds…yum. We may be a little sick around our house but we’re trying to enjoy the holiday season!

I’m obsessed!

I think I might be obsessed with this color, what do you think?

It reminds me of summer and looking at my things brings a little bit of happiness to my cubicle days.  I have gotten so many compliments on my wallet.

Are you obsessed with any colors this season?  I’ve seen some beautiful oranges as well!
