gold leaf frame deal

I always love art in gold leaf frames, but it is hard to find a pretty one without going the custom route which typically comes with a higher price tag. I found this gold leaf frame from Utrecht. The frame is still on sale. I bought the 11X14 for my Emily Jeffords print. It literally is just the frame. I paid $17.99 for mine. I took it to Hobby Lobby and they added glass, matting ($2.99 pre-cut, not custom), backing and hardware for $26. They did it right on the spot too which was a plus! I was really pleased with the price and how it turned out. 

I am slowly getting around to updating our master bedroom. I need more serenity in my life :) so I am going with a more serene feel in our room this time around. I still have lots to add to our room, but I am taking my time.

perfectly pink

Since we moved several months ago, Georgia has been requesting that her room be pink. I have never been a huge fan of pink rooms and honestly I thought with her pink bedding it might be too much pink, but how many times in your life can you have a pink room? So we obliged and I found a beautiful shade of pink that I think works well. We used 75% Benjamin Moore's Love and Happiness. It is a nice, warm dusting of pink. Eventually we may change up her bedding, but for now Georgia's room is feeling perfectly pink!

Graham Central Station

We celebrated Graham's second birthday over the weekend. It was a wonderful cookout with cousins  in the backyard kind of party complete with some trains! Graham loves anything on wheels, especially trains, so it was Graham Central Station over at our house. 

He is such a sweet and loving little boy. We love you Graham Carter!
