Since this photo a lot has changed. First and foremost I added some greenery. It makes a HUGE difference. I am thinking about doing a post on interior plants. What do you guys think? I need something that is hard to kill. I did not get my mother's green thumb!
Drapes are a must. They are next on my wish list. Luckily my husband agrees, so we will see how that conversation goes...advice is always welcome. Until next time.Amanda

Hudson Boot Cut Jeans
I could literally wear this outfit everyday, and I basically do!! I am going to have to tweak it a little, due to the heat we are about to have to suffer through this summer. Any suggestions are welcome. I absolutely hate sweating more than anything in the world!! Amanda

The more you use the more dramatic the effect. It is like a collection. If you can only afford to make three at first, no problem. You can add more later.
Try to keep the framing simple. I like using champagne colored frames. It goes great with gold and silver. I also really like to stay with neutral colored mats. No matter how cute it seems, lime green mats are rarely a good idea. I like to do a big mat, even if the print or picture is small, it gives a gallery quality to the piece.
I found all of these prints on Etsy! The seller is High Street Market and they run about $14.00 bucks each. They have a huge selection and it is so fun to hunt for a little treasure. So be creative and let the following tips act a helpful guide to creating a fabulous wall of prints in your own home.

Isn't he handsome? I love him...
It was a full length Catholic mass and wedding. I seriously almost passed out, right around the time this picture was taken.
The reception was fun!!! I think this picture sums it up.
Yes, biegnets were served towards the end of the wedding. I did not get any...sad face.
He is going to kill me for this picture. He doesn't like to show off his bald head. It is growing on me.
The End. We were heading to Bermuda. It is amazing!! Go!! I might have to post some of those pictures too. Hope you enjoyed a glimpse into our wedding!

I do not use many hair products. Shampoo and conditioner is about as fancy as I get, except for this miracle hairspray, Aveda's Air Control. It holds and doesn't make your head feel like a helmet. It also smells fantastic.
Essie is by far my favorite line of nail polish. I am loving this color right now..."Cute as a Button", and it is!!
Hands down best lotion. Makes my skin so soft, and is uber inexpensive.
This is a great lip gloss. It is not too sticky, and is a very pretty peachy-pink. I know my friend Sarah loves it.

Beautiful faux antique writing desk from Noir Furniture LA. It is feminine and timeless. It is a great start to base the design.
I have wanted a ghost chair for years. It will juxtapose the old world feel of the desk perfectly!
What can I say? Every woman needs a little pink in her life. Christopher Spitzmiller makes the most divine gourd lamps ever!! They of course cost more than most sofas, but this is my dream office, money is no object.
This is another item that has been on my wish list for years. Stark's Antelope rug is just too good. I would even use this in my future nursery, or living room.
I would love a pair of these for a cozy reading area adjacent from my desk area. I would cover them in a creamy velvet.
If I didn't use this for drapes, I would cover the above chairs in this China Seas fabric. Pink, pink, and more pink.
I threw this in because it is like an unexpected, fabulous accessory. I mean does it get much cooler than a crocodile stapler? I think not. That is all for today.
