Do you Pinterest?
I'll admit it, it's addicting. A place full of ideas of every way, shape, & form, I've enjoyed curating a collection of boards. If you haven't followed me yet, be sure you do by clicking the link above!

Here are a few things on my radar this First Friday of 2012!

Color: It's back and bolder than ever. I am THRILLED to be onto brighter and cheerier times, I think everyone is. A palate of color inspiration can come from many places. I love this simple yet elegant tablescape with a crisp, clean linen backdrop and bold pops of color.

Check Mate: I'm starting to see lots of gingham, buffalo, & campy checks everywhere from laundry sacks to luxurious Belgian linen. As a recent iPhone convert, I've been on the hunt for the perfect case. The husband says the case I picked up from Target looks like a tween girls. But that is neither here nor there...
The perfect one might just be this big buffalo check. Now the question is .... what color?

I haven't shared too much recently but if you know me IRL, you know I love to be in the kitchen. Trying new recipes is my jam. For NYE we fixed this potato "slinky" and it was fabulous. I highly recommend it!

Organization. My inner OCD loves this photo. Everything in it's place, out of sight. 
Was your resolution to become more organized?

Hey there chevron! I am all about loving the little things & small spaces. Wouldn't this be a great way to create a bold focal wall in your entryway? Better yet, this would be a great weekend warrior DIY project!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! We'll be working The Run for Young tomorrow morning ... if you're in the Raleigh area and looking for a morning exercise activity that is for a good cause, please join us! Details can be found here: Run for Young.

My resolution was TOTALLY to get more organized. We moved in September, but since it was right before the wedding and then life has been crazy post-wedding, basically nothing has been done in the way of organizing. Our house is a disaster!

I am so happy to see more color too. Bright and bold is very cheery. I love the blue plate in the first photo. I actually have a set of them...
