My thoughts, exactly.

I have been traveling. A lot, a lot, a lot. And in my travels I have had the chance to sit and read a zillion magazines, which seems to be a rare occurrance. But oh, what a guilty pleasure it is. Among my favorites is the magazine country living, and in the editors letter Sarah Gray Miller is name dropping a bit but follows it up by saying,

"I mention these folks not merely to provide a preview for the issue- or, heaven forbid, to name drop- but because they epitomize what Country Living stands for: the confidence to be casual, the generosity to make other people feel truly comfortable (instead of intimidated), and the ability to discern the difference between sophisticated simplicity and stuffy pretension. Like you and me, everyone on the following pages understands that luxury does not come from large sums of money. It's about paying attention to life's most delicious details- and taking the time to enjoy them."

My thoughts EXACTLY, Sarah.

Here are a few of my favorite things from the issue.

An easy center piece that I will be using for a party this weekend- thank you very much!
This fabulous sofa- the dresser was even more incredible but I couldn't find an image online- you will have to pick up the issue yourself to catch a glimpse!

How to: Crochet your own hand towels. These are darling.

How to: Make two old twin bed headboards into this! Yes, please.

My Jane, how I love those dots...

Lately, I have been dying over Jane Churchills wallpapers. And don't you worry, I already have one picked out for our new little girly nursery. If only you could actually feel it through your computer screen, it has this great velvety touch to it. Mine will be in the most perfect shade of blush that you have ever seen.

I can't wait to get a move on this little room so I can share it with you.

If you are interested in Jane Churchills line, whether it's fabric, wallpaper, or her actual nursery collection- you can contact me for pricing and details.
