TGIFiles - Happy Weekend!

We've got a fun family day/weekend planned, so I thought I'd share a few things before we head out...

~ This is a great article from the New York Times on the founders of Houzz. I enjoy getting background and behind-the-scenes info - gives you a little bit of mental image as to how it all works and how it all began.

~ Check out how my blog friend Sarah styled her shelf for spring - she's so creative (and she drew that botanical on the chalkboard too!)


Sarah does such a nice job of mixing textures, adding in the meaningful pieces to her family, and coordinating colors and shapes.

And I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! We're off to the zoo today!

  1. I love the hand drawn botanical! What a smart way to change out your "artwork" seasonally, by doing a drawing yourself!

  2. There was an article in the Wall Street Journal this week too, it's in my to-read-pile! Sarah's bookcase styling is always a favorite, and her art takes the chalkboard up a notch! The zoo and a toddler, another favorite! :)

  10. I love the chalkboard drawing as well as the succulents. They are my favorite house plants...because they are basically indestructable!
