Ok, I know its a tad early for Christmas posts, but since I have a retail shop I need to start getting in the mood! I loved this article from last year's Cottage Living about Style Editor Heather Chadduck's 1930's bungalow in Birmingham Alabama. I was renovating our current home when I read this article, and it inspired me to do a chalkboard in our kitchen. I still love it. And now that we are getting ready for a new house (yes, we're vagabonds), I still plan on giving the new house that useful touch in the Mud Room. I loved Heather's whimsical touch to holiday decorating. She didn't have quite enough room for a tree inside, so instead opted for a porch placement. I just loved the big numbers on her tree. And I really liked the brown and blue treatment in the bedroom, just so PRETTY. That's ok to do now, ya know?
