A blog post would not be complete without sharing some cute pictures of Phoebe. However, this post isn't just about Miss Phoebe. I've been decorating!
First of all, I have tried to train Phoebe not to sit in these chairs. She's doing quite well, don't you think?
She gives me the "sad face" as if to say, look at how clean and white I am... how can I do any damage?
My favorite little Canon Elf broke so I have been using my iPhone camera, which works quite well. This is just a portion of what I've been slowly decorating over the past four months. I had the ottoman custom made by a wonderful gentleman I found at The Melrose Trading Post. I went to the fabric district downtown and found the most perfect fabric for him to build it. It feels like a Vera Wang gown! I just love how it turned out.
I have scoured the internet and also some favorite stores like TJ Maxx and Marshall's for fab home accessories. I found this pretty satin pillow that my mom says looks like a sea urchin. It needed a little bling so I added a vintage rhinestone button to the center.
My dear friend Christine gave me these paintings when she was clearing out her place a couple years ago. She knew that I had always admired so I was thrilled when she gave them to me. I actually based my color palette on the girls' aqua dresses.
My Dad made me this gorgeous credenza after I showed him a picture of one that I liked at a local store. Isn't it wonderful? Through the years he has built everything from whimsical outdoor benches, decorative birdhouses to doodad holders... and now a lovely piece of furniture!
So June is upon us and I can't believe it's summer. I hope you're all enjoying everything it has to offer... everything is blooming and the birdies are chirping.
