hi guys

I thought I'd stop in to say hello!

I've been quite busy the last couple weeks....but I should be back to normal posting soon.

I'm still working on my sons room...not everyday mind you....just a little here and a little there.

Let's see....what else is new....Oh yeah, I have lots to add to my etsy shop....some of which will be added next week.

Hmmmm....what else....I'm in dire need of some new decorating books....anyone have a good one to recommend?

I was invited to collaborate on a project and can't wait to share it with you. The person behind this is so wonderful and I just know she will turn our randomness into something amazing.

Well...I think that's it for today...wow...the randomness of this post is dizzying ;o)


  1. Hello from the other side of the world ;)

    ... always nice to pop in and read what you've been up to. Two books on my list for this year is the new Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Inspirations and Romantic Prairie Style by Fifi O'Neill, maybe you have those already?

    Have a great day :)

  2. HI there! I've been really wanting a new decorating book too, what to buy, what to buy.....wondering about "Patina Style" but can't seem to get my hands on a copy to peruse so I haven't taken the plunge yet.
    It seems like there just aren't that many out there right now.
    Sibella Court has a new book out but I'm thinking it may be a bit too "global" of a decorating style for me.....good luck finding something!
    Can't wait to see what your collaboration is....:).

  3. Hi Andrea! Love the photo above~So nice to see a post from you!! xoxo

  4. Atlanta Bartlett's: Pale & Interesting! :) I luv all her books!

  5. Hello Andrea,
    Can't wait to see how your sons room turned out.
    Would you give us a little sneak peek? Maybe?
    Isn't it great to be wonderfully busy?
    I was going to post today and totally ran out of time because I decided to go thrifting instead.
    Had a great time and came home with some cute finds.
    Make it a great week!

  6. Hi Andrea...i can't wait to see your sons room is finished .....show us baby !!...lots of love .....i miss you.............♥.. ♥... ♥....

  7. Hi Andrea-

    Are you going to get anymore etched mirrors in your shop. I bought one and I LOVE it. I would love another.
    Have a great weekend.

  8. next time I come over I want to see a little farmhouse in those boys rooms. :) although they were adorable to begin with.

    call you later.

  9. Hi Andrea. Can't wait to find out what you've been working on. Love that photo.

  10. Hey you....love that photo....yes,I just got and LOVE..PALE AND INTERESTING...best book ever!!! x0x0

  11. Deco books...nope! I mostly re-read my fav mags over and over and over again. Romantic Homes had a great 'white' feature last moth- like a 10 page spread or something...it was beautiful! You would like it! I can't stop looking at it. It had Christmas decor in it, too! I think it was the November issue. I know it wasn't the latest one. My copy is out in my car or I would check for you to be sure. It had a big pink wreath on the cover. andrea@townandprairie
