Jen's Pea Gravel Patio...

No...below is not Honey Boo-Boo's yard...it is what Jen's looks like at the moment.  The old furniture is now in the hoarder-like "garage sale pile" and the kids seem to have been using the gravel for some kind of obstacle course....

The pea gravel, (funny to say) is ready for a face lift.  Below are some inspirational spaces to make our space more grown-up friendly...

Southern Style

She's planning on providing the space with lots of filled flower pots...as we lack the lushness of Napa Valley.;) 

Maybe her BBH can build her kids one of these this weekend?


Now thats a playhouse...

Put some pea gravel inspiration in your back pocket this weekend.

Office with a View...

I'm so sick of the cold weather here in the midwest.  Thinking of moving my office around to get a little sunshine.  After all, I'm convinced I have Seasonal Affective  Disorder, (SAD!)  
What do you think?   Too distracting?

A Classic: Canvas Boat Totes

This is the time of year when you see lots of inspiration containing our favorite, classic Canvas Tote. So many uses, so durable, and so classic.
 Below is a little slice of heaven

 Use for everyday storage...


Snippet and Ink
swag bags...


Here's a cute idea from wholephamily.com, buy/sew patches from places you've visited.  (inexpensive souvenier!)

or sneak it in to your decor...

Here is a good "How to Buy" from Muffy at The Dailey Prep
(just click on link above)

Always inexpensive and fun to personalize.  We usually go for the original from LL Bean, but Land's End is a great source, too.  In fact Lands End has now has a canvas boat "cooler," that makes you want to go have a beer on the dock!

Target Tip

 I ran in to this little cutie at Target the other day.  Picked it right up off the shelf, out into the isle, and did my usual "hmmm, this looks like my house...Where could it go?  Perhaps two together?"  etc.
Threshold, $59.99. In the end I didn't buy it...as I am a woman of willpower. 
This cutie is on sale online for a mere $29.98.  Heck for that price your can recover it when you get sick of it...

Thes two Ikat storage ottoman thingies are on sale for $34.95!

 ...and I'm really digging this modern metal x-stool.  It's currently on sale for $41.98.  A great update.
