I've been a fan of Sharon Montrose's Animal Print Shop since I first heard about it, but her Babies and recent Little Darlings series are just too cute not to share. Check out the rest of the shop and her portfolio here.

All Hallow's Eve


Happy Halloween friends! Bambi is going to dress up as a 5 star general. Authentic looking costume, right?  :) I ended up being a cat this weekend (that was pre-whiskers) which is what I have been probably 10 out of my 25 Halloweens. I say this every year, but I really am going to prepare ahead of time and be something original next time. We're planning on spending the evening watching scary movies and waiting to see if any trick or treaters pay us a visit. What are your halloween plans? Hope it's a good one!

If you have any good (quick!) ideas, please share - I'm desperate. Have a great weekend!!

Rock Candy


How fun are these colorful hand-painted pieces by Tom Binns? Can't wait to try to recreate my own with a bracelet I found at Antiques and Beyond and this DIY tutorial via Cupcakes and Cashmere

This and That







I shared some knit trees by Suzanne Tidwell a while back thinking they were so unique and original, only to find that yarn bombing (as it is referred to) is a growing new form of street art. Pretty awesome, no? via Street Art Utopia
New Black Keys single Lonely Boy makes me wanna dance
Jorge Colombo creates some impressive iPhone art
Some interspecies mingling (i.e. the world's greatest mommy)
Anthropologist's Pick: 50 of the world's best breakfasts
Costume inspiration from the fashion world's finest because if you're like me, you don't have one yet

Happy and Bright



Came across Claiborne Swanson Frank's NYC apartment with her husband James Frank in Elle Decor and decided I need to invest in some house trees...see the rest of their home here.

Comfy Cozy

"It's a good day for a root canal," Allen said this morning after experiencing the cold, drizzly ATL weather in the form of a dog walk, and while I don't know that any day is a good day for a root canal, I really love his attitude. So I started my morning off with that little procedure, which was only mildly traumatizing, (especially considering I've never even had a cavity filled - if anyone in the Atlanta area needs a dentist, call Dr. Guillaume, he's the best) but my soreness and general lethargy in conjunction with this very cold, very gray day has me dreaming of comfy cozy spaces to curl up in...


A raised fireplace is always cozier than floor level - bonus points for the abundance of flannel


A cozy window seat full of pillows and piles of books begging to be read - so comfy.


Not sure if its the shag rug, the fur throw or the overall effect but I could definitely cozy up here. Stay warm friends!! xx

Scotch & Soda

I first discovered Scotch & Soda through their shrunk collection (with the cutest models ever) and was delighted to find that they make big girl clothes, too. Loving all their Fall/Winter looks - relaxed and effortlessly pulled together.
