This votive holder was purchased years ago.  Similar HERE

I love the old world look this entry piece has.  It is made out of reclaimed pine and reminds me of my East Texas roots.  I had searched and searched for it after watching it get sold at a local store and had contacted a local furniture maker to get a replica made, but he happened to have one in his shop just down the road from me!  I was thrilled and purchased it right away.  I like to think we were meant to be…

This is an old Pottery Barn piece I purchased 8 years ago at the outlet in San Marcos.  I had it painted a while back and it’s one of my favorite pieces I own. It is painted in the color “Oyster Bay” by Sherwin Williams and then we added a stain on top.

This blue rug caught my eye when I was in Homegoods, but it wasn’t the size I needed.  I took a quick snap of the tag and searched online and found it in many sizes and colors on amazon.  It’s a great value.  This is the charcoal color…though it is blue.

These shouldered vases are my absolute favorite!  I will change the stems with each season, but I feel like they are so versatile and add that “cottagy” touch.

This couch is amazing.  I love how quality it feels and the white is the perfect white.  I had wanted a white slipcovered sofa for a while and explored so many.  I landed on this one which I love. I have already had a couple of spills that were quickly remedied with some dawn and hydrogen peroxide (thanks mom for the tip.)

This is the PB comfort slipcovered sectional but I put a WEDGE piece in the middle.

I had been looking for black oval frame for their silhouettes and was so excited to find these at Walmart!  Linked HERE.  Silhouettes were done by me in photoshop.

I had this lumbar pillow in our previous home, and had to order a new one for our new home.  It is from Ballard Designs HERE and its the 12×20 in quilted white.

Smaller linen pillow covers HERE | Inserts ALL of them HERE

The blue velvet pillows were custom-made with fabric from Bella Notte Linens in color “cenote.” You can purchase the quilted version HERE | Similar HERE

I love the little peek of pink you see in this photo above.  I will share her room as soon as it is finished.

Recliner = happy husband :). We found his chair at Star Furniture

This coffee table was a craigslist find years ago.  I recently refinished the top.  I had originally seen it at the Pottery Barn outlet in San Marcos.  When it was time to purchase a coffee table, I knew exactly which one I wanted.  After some searching, one popped up in Austin and my parents drove it over.

A lot of these pieces were accumulated over the years and I love that each piece kind of happened to me.  Thoughtful purchases over years of time can be better than rushing to furnish a home.

  We still have a lot of moving in to do and I will share the rest of the home with yall as everything is completed.  We are still waiting on blinds and shutters and some furniture to arrive.  It is still a work in progress, but I am enjoying it in every stage.

   We came to this home while it was in the framing stage and worked with the builder and made some changes to the home as it was being built.  The home was supposed to be gray with grey and white floors.  The built in bookshelf was going to be more cabinets and I asked for shelves.  I love how they turned out.  I had them paint the island and bookshelves in the color “illusive green” by Sherwin Williams and the majority of the home in “sedate gray” by Sherwin Williams.  We also changed the floors to a more natural, wood looking tile.

  We have been living in a rental limbo life since our house sold in 2017.  It sold very quickly and we weren’t sure exactly where we wanted to live and didn’t want to rush.  Only expecting to rent for a year, we found a townhome in The Woodlands that ended up being our home for almost 2 1/2 years.  During that time we weren’t allowed to paint and I chose not to really decorate because it was going to be such a short rental period. Looking back, I wish I would have.  Anyway, long story short, after looking at several homes, we decided to purchase land and began designing a custom home with a local architect.  The process has been harder than I expected, and we are hoping to begin construction on that home in a few years or so.  We stumbled upon this house in the process and decided it was meant to be.  It is in the same school district as our property so the kids wont have to move schools when we build and its so close to everything we need.  We are so excited to be home owners again and it has been wonderful decorating this lovey home.  The kids rooms have been so fun to do and I can’t wait to share those with yall soon!

Sunday Morning Organization

8.jpg10.jpg6.jpg_ND47.jpg3.jpg1.jpg5.jpg4.jpg88.jpg11.jpg77.jpg2.jpg

 Dress (4) HERE | Earrings HERE | Tote HERE (this size is the Tory Burch McGraw tote size) | Organizer HERE | Shoes similar HERE | Vase HERE | Lips  HERE color is “soar” and gloss HERE

  My favorite tote just got a structured upgrade!  I have purchased these totes in the past  (I love having my monogram on my totes) and they haven’t had any structure so my organizer was a must.  Now with the structure, I find myself using the tote alone without the organizer when I’m not with the kids.

  On Sunday mornings, I need lots of snacks and some toys for the kiddos during church.  I don’t enjoy digging into the deep abyss of my bag when I have a toddler begging for their favorite tiny toy, so I found these organizers and LOVE them.  They come in all sizes and colors and are super functional and affordable.  Also, they are made of thick felt which has no problem standing on its own and won’t get scrunched up in the bottom of your bag. LOVE

  This dress I found when I was shopping with Tessa and grabbed it for an event I had last week!  It is so comfortable and easy to wear.  The color is perfect for this time of year in Texas.

  Theme of this past week has been coughing!  We went to family camp with our church last weekend and since then, I have been coughing so much. Went to the doc and turns out I have strep throat so I have been laying low.  I got some medicine and hoping to feel better asap!

  We had a date night just before we left and went to Hughes Landing here in The Woodlands that has restaurants on the water and a path to walk around the lake.  It is so hot here and this dress is another throw on and go.  It just happens to be my favorite colors, blue and white, I know SHOCKER lol!  I love this classic color combo and this dress.  I sized up for length.

  Have a wonderful 4th everyone!
