Weekend Recap: Party & Progress

Hi Loves,

I hope you all had an amazing weekend. We had an action packed weekend here in NY. One day of fun and one day of work!

On Saturday we had a fuzzin wedding to attend. Of course I had minor freak out over what I was going to wear. I had plans to run out early Saturday morning and search for a new dress at Nordstrom Rack, but apparently my body had other plans. I didn't wake up till 10:30 am and then after cleaning up the house a bit I knew it was way too late to get ready and make it out to find something new.

So I became an outfit repeater (Anyone know what movie that term comes from? Totally ashamed I've seen this movie. :) ) and wore the same dress I wore to Mom and Dad's vow renewal.

I changed it up a bit and added some vintage earrings that added a punch of color and sparkle, but also pain. They were clip on's and they hurt!



A group shot of all of the ladies at the table:


One of the only shots I got of the bride and groom. They looked great. I can't wait to see their professional shots, because mine didn't come out so hot.




We danced the night away and then headed back home to get some rest, because I had big plans for Sunday.

Sunday we added new pillows to the living room:



Plus a vintage bamboo mirror was giving a coat of orangey/red spray paint and hung up for all to enjoy. The larger mirror makes a huge difference. It really opened up the space!



Window Treatments went up in the dining room:



Hung stunning artwork that I will treasure forever! It is by the amazingly talented Tina Steele Lindsey a wonderful artist based out of Atlanta.



It's all coming together!!! I can't wait for portfolio shoot. Only a couple more little missing items and we will be finished...for now... :)

What were you up to this weekend? Any fun projects you took on?

I adore Lindsay's art! The pillows are wonderful with the new drapes. Where did you find them (the pillows)!?

I am always worried about being a repeat offender but I don't really think anyone notices! It's a beautiful dress...might as well get some use out of it!

Can't wait to see your portfolio shots...your home is looking great!

Sounds like a great weekend! I love the look of your living room, espec. the window treatments and the bamboo mirror! This weekend I went to an antique fair where I picked up a Dorothy Draper Espana chest for $100 (I think it's a knock off but still a good price).

Love your chair in the living room. Can I ask where it is from? I am looking to add two chairs to our living room. We just bought a huge sofa that will be recovered once I figure out the chair situation.

Thanks for all the sweet comments. Totally makes me day especially during such a dreary day like the one we are having today in NY.

Pillow are from here:http://www.etsy.com/shop/TurquoiseTumbleweed

They are so well made and one of the most reasonably priced pillow sellers on etsy that I've found. Love them!

Chair are from here:

I love them and the store always has some sort of 15-20 % off promo code going on. They are based in NC so I didn't sit on them before hand, but they give a 30 showroom trial so you can test them out in your home and see if you like them. If you don't they will come back and pick them and give you a full refund. Pretty cool. We bought out sofa from them as well.

Where are your white roman shades from? Are they custom or did you pick them up from a store? They look great. Love the crisp white.
Which brown do you have in your living room? I tried a Benjamin Moore Grizzly Bear brown...I like yours better.
