All Things L O V E.

I don't know. I'm just obsessed with love. I really think that's the one thing I cherish. There are endless amounts of love and it just knows how to multiply again and again.  Here's what I am feeling right now.

Blog Lovin' : Honey We're Home

I came across the cutest blog called Honey We're home, and I thought I would share it with you. She does have 554 followers, so chances are you have seen it too. For those of you who have not, you need to check out her kitchen! It's absolutely stunning! I love how she blends modern and traditional so seamlessly.

Trend Report: Top Handle Bags.

So a style of bag that is super hot right now is the top handle bag. For me, the top handle bag works out great because I really don't like to lug a bag on my shoulder. Let's face it ladies, when you buy a great bag, the last thing you want is for it to be stuck under your armpit. Check out my favorites...

Nuggets of inspiration.

I thought I would just throw some photos of inspiration out there for you today. Today's photos come from Sarah Richardson's website. If you haven't been there, GO! WAIT. Not yet. You need to finish looking at the photos first. I browsed through her awe-inspiring portfolio and chose some eye candy for you to enjoy. Hope this leaves you inspired to tackle those projects this weekend.

A sneak peek into our dining room and kitchen reno....

So our dining room and kitchen renovations have taken longer than expected due to Mr. K working a ridiculous amounts of hours during the week. I thought I would just give you a sneak peek of the after photos. Check back to see the full before and after posting. It may be a few weeks, but I can't wait to share them with you!

This is my best buy so far, a $672 chandelier that I bought on Ebay for $90 !!

Ikea Photo Ledge.

Just thought I would share the Ikea photo ledge that I purchased. I really like having the option of switching out photos and art. I haven't done anything fantastic with it, just added a print that I bought from Etsy and threw in a couple black framed photos. I think it's a good start for now.

Spotlight: ETSY Seller zJayne.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. We hear this all the time, and I always think about what I can do to cut back on waste. I found these ingenious upcycled dryer sheets sachets. They take place of your chemically treated dryer sheets. Seems like they would be safer not only for the earth, but your family as well.

The outside is constructed of recycled t-shirts, and the inside contains fragrant organic lavender buds. The seller notes that they can be used for a quick sachet for camping, closets, car freshener, drawers and more. .

Wouldn't this make a great gift for a housewarming party, wedding shower, baby shower, or even the upcoming holidays? Check out zJayne's shop for more details.
