Little Girl's Nursery Palette

Vintage Nursery Finds

One of the best parts about The World’s Longest Yard Sale this year was knowing that we were having a girl!  I went with my inspiration board in mind and hoped to find some fun vintage items for Baby Girl’s nursery.   Right before we left, I came across a vintage floral painting at a thrift […]

Blogger Stylin’ Home Tours – Favorite Room Edition

First of all, I have to give a big, heart-felt, tear-filled thank you to all of you lovely people.  Wednesday’s post was one of the hardest I’ve ever written…that’s probably why it took me four days to finish!  But all of your e-mails and comments in response brought such comfort to me and my family.

The Art of Living with Intention and Leaving a Legacy Behind

A Life Well-Lived

I know I’ve been a bit out of touch lately on the blog.  I started this post several days ago and just haven’t been able to finish.  My grandpa, who is one of the most special people I’ve ever known, isn’t doing so well.  We don’t know how much time he has, but all the family […]

12 Affordable Ways to Add Personality to Dorm Rooms and Rentals

I recently got a great question from a sweet, college-bound reader named Rachel.   She was asking for affordable ways to spruce up her dorm room and I thought, I’ve got to do a little round-up for this! We all get questions a lot about decorating in rentals and dorm rooms are kind of the […]

DIY Tie-Dye Lampshade

Tie-dye seriously makes everything better.  It can brighten any neutral, drab fabric that is screaming, “Make me unique!  Make me pretty!” We all have those lamps that are neutral and fine, but wouldn’t they be better with a little more personality?   That’s what I thought recently looking at this tan and white lamp sitting […]

 GIRL!!! We recently found out that our sweet Baby Buffalo is a little girl.  We couldn’t be happier! We were really excited about either option, but as soon as we heard a little girl was on the way, it just felt right.  It’s amazing how knowing that a baby girl will be joining our family […]

Boho, Rustic, & Vintage Little Girls Nursery

In my line of work, I’ve always dreamed of the day when I would get to design a nursery for my little one. I’ve had ideas about the space (for boy or girl) for years. But now that it’s actually here, I feel this odd pressure to do it just right. I know the baby isn’t […]

Tips for Surviving the First Trimester

Today is the first official day of my second trimester. The first trimester seems to be different for every woman, but one thing that seems consistent with those I’ve talked to is that it’s tough.  We may all have different levels of symptoms, but the goal is to survive. At my first appointment, I was told […]

The Studious Stag – Baby Clothes Source

For years, I’ve looked at baby clothes and dreamed of dressing a little tiny one.  In fact, I got asked if I was pregnant many times by people who’d seen me pinning baby clothes….like two years ago. Oh well, I was preparing in advance! It can be hard to find cute, unique baby clothes, but […]

Artsy & Rustic Office Mood Board

If I hadn’t just redone my office in the spring, I would seriously be taking inspiration from this board. For my second Scout & Nimble mood board, I fell in love with this Barrett Desk.  From the minute I saw it, I knew I needed it in my life.  And since I don’t need a […]
