Friday Tidbits

Hooray - it's Friday!! Happy Friday...a few things to report...first and foremost...

West Pear Avenue got a new look...


What do you think? I am head over heels about the makeover and I've got Elizabeth from The Mustard Ceiling to thank for the new look. Elizabeth - thank you thank you! Elizabeth is so great to work with and I would highly recommend her if you or anyone you know is looking for any type of blog design service. I'm real clueless when it comes to computer-stuff, so I knew that I'd need some help. 

The color scheme is exactly what I had hoped for, and Elizabeth had a few different designs for me ready to evaluate to see what I liked, disliked, wanted to keep, etc. I had married a little of one look with this overall look that I ended up choosing and couldn't be happier. I feel like I just got 7 inches chopped off my hair and new highlights - that's what it feels like to have this new "look" for WPA.

Secondly, this pretty arrangement below is what I've had hanging out in my living room for the past week and I LOVE it. 

Ever since I saw the gladiolas in Fran's hallway makeover (have you seen her hallway? It's great - go check it out if you haven't seen it) I was smitten and had to have some for my own home. I've been getting bunches of them at Whole Foods for $3.99 - not bad at all and they last forever.

I'll also have more living room photos for you soon.

And I'll leave you with a few of my favorite images...enjoy.


















I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
