Epic Fail.

I spent ALL last Saturday painting our guest bedroom. Well, painting only took a couple of hours but I also scrub cleaned it and put all the crap back in there. The paint color I went with I thought was a no brainer....Martha Stewart's Heath. I mean Martha created it?!?WRONG. And I am pissed at Martha because of it. You can't really tell in the pictures but it's green. Like grandma green. Not sure what happened. I had it color matched to Olympic paint. So, maybe that was the problem?It's back to the drawing board. Unfortunately, I'm not really digging these colors either...I'm leaning towards going with good ol' Dusty Trail by Olympic. The same thing I painted my living room. Read about that here.

What do you think...is it bad to have the majority of your house a similar color? I kind of like it. It makes things about a gazillion times easier to decorate. For now...I'm still mad at Martha.

EmersonMade's Fall Collection

How did you fare with Hurricane Irene?  We just got our power back late last night, but most of our town is still out.  No electricity, hot showers, internet, and cell service really makes you go a little bonkers.  The good news is that the post-Irene weather has been cool, sunny and brisk and has me giddy for fall.  Have you seen EmersonMade's new fall collection??  I am in love.  Here is my wishlist...


 The black day coat - so simple and classic.  Look at its versatility....




Or the classic white shirt....


Add this pockets skirt and tweed jacket....so quintessential fall!


A wardrobe isn't complete without a little 'dots'....


And, how about these bag o' dresses (sold in a trio of colors).....pretty please!!


Yeah, I think I'm ready for fall!  You?

ps:  thank you for all your input - i was surprised by the overwhelming response!  And, yes, I am keeping it.  You guys are the best!  Thank you!

Happy Eid Mubarak

Pouf Be Gone.

Or at least ugly pouf be gone....You may remember this guy from when I mentioned it here or here .....I found it at my favorite junk store and almost DIED. Why? Because it was only 8 dollas. Luckiest day eva. I then almost died a second time when I tried to re-cover it myself. Turns out sewing a circle isn't quite as easy as sewing a pillow. I had to call in my Mom for backup. Sewing a circle wasn't hard at all for her. And to give myself some credit I did cut out the fabric correctly. Go me!My Mom made me take this photo to pretend I knew what I was doing...nobodies buying it I'm sure. She did all the work.And when she was finished with all that work (really it only took about 30 minutes) it looked like this....Notice that purdy shag carpet in the background. It was a birthday present and it makes anything look good. Not that the pouf needs any help. {Side Note - Tils walks up to that antler and sniffs it like 100 times a day - supa funny}It's not only pretty but very functional. It's less bulky than a big ol' coffee table and makes for a great place to prop your feet up. And because everyone loves a good before and after....

So there you have it....the ugly pouf is gone. Here's a question for you....Is it really called a pouf? Do you spell it p-o-u-f? If not that's embarrassing because I've spelled and called it that a lot in this post :)
