I feel so bad for not blogging much as of late. Im really finding it challenging to keep up with my business and my blog- there are many days I wish there was a second me. Im also trying to finish up a few projects before the kids are out of school for the summer and I plan on taking some serious R & R soon. R & R as in Hawaii !!! I’ve never been, so Im a wee bit excited about it!
ok- moving onto pretty things: I went down to the Design Center last week for some shopping for a few clients and thought I’d share some snaps I took (dork alert: I like saying “snaps” because while we were in London last year that was how the Brits said it and I thought it was sooo cool). Anway—

A trio of petrified wood tables — ah-mazing!
Are you noticing a trend? mixing textures? wood & metal, stone & wood. And then this— Wood and fabric. This wooden wingback with charcoal upholstery was stunning and comfy too!!
Another mixing of textures: cowhide & chrome!! And cowhide is highly stain resistant so these are perfect for side tables. I’d still use a coaster to set my drink on -maybe a sexy agate slice??
And in case your wondering, I did purchase something on this trip.
This wonderful nailhead trim side table is going in a clients living room.
I also had some shopping fun last weekend with Megan from Honey We’re Home– she hosted a HomeGoods Blogger Shopping party at our local HomeGoods and I picked up this little gold & glass side table from
