This past weekend I decided Little R and I needed to take a road trip up to my parent's house for a night. It has been so long since we have visited (mom and dad usually come to us since both brother's live near me in Charleston). There is something so nice about going home. I think I like to be taken care of once in a while and take a little T.O. from being a momma/wife all the time. It was a quick trip but we had such a great time and I think Little R loved the undivided attention:)
This is a little snippet of my parents yard. It is small but quite lush.
Took a Father's Day dip
While I was home, I must admit, I went on the hunt for things my parents aren't currently using and asked if maybe I could have or borrow some things for a bit. I think I was having a major pity party for myself because I ended up bringing home more than I should have. Here is one framed print that was actually hanging on their wall. Dad said yes, mom, not so sure:) I think it looks pretty good in its new home. What do you think?
Below is another painting hanging in their house that I did not end up with but I thought it would be a good inspiration piece for me to try my hand at. Don't you just love the colors!!!
When I got home I decided that I needed to revamp my bookcases to look like these by Amber. I'll share pics this week of what I've come up with.
I also am second guessing the placement of the yellow circle painting above the sofa. Thinking I may take this down and do a huge gallery wall instead.
Maybe doing something like this
Lastly. has anyone cme across any fabric similar to this? My mom bought these as dishtowels and made them into pillows years ago and I am obsessed with teh fabric! I would love to cover teh boys ottoman in teh playroom with something similar and am thinking of resorting to Spoonflower to design my own if I can't locate anything similar. Let me know your thoughts!
