TGIFiles - Happy Weekend!

Well this week flew right by of course...I know I've been off of my "normal" posting schedule. I'd like to get back to my 3 days per week posting, but we'll see.

~Guess what?? I won something! The ever so kind, generous, and talented Traci Zeller was giving away a copy of Celerie Kemble's "Black and White (and a Bit in Between)" and I won!! I was completed beside myself when Traci announced the winner. So I get to add this to my collection...and because I've been so busy I haven't even had a chance to start browsing. Ok, maybe I browsed a little bit as soon as I tore it out of the package but I really want to relax and read page by page.

So a big, big thank you to Traci - and did you know that Traci was also chosen as a Style Spotter at High Point Market? She has a Pinterest board specifically for her High Point Style Spotter finds. A few of my favorites are this pretty chair by CR Laine. 

And this light fixture by Visual Comfort.

For more goodies that Traci found see her High Point Style Spotters board here. Part of the fun of the Style Spotters duty is a contest - 2 points for a repin and 1 point for a like - so pin away to support Traci if you see anything that catches your eye.

Did you also know that Traci is the Mom to adorable 6-year-old twin boys? She's always got great design tips for families on her blog and on her Twitter feed too.

~I'm making some progress on the window treatments in our bedroom. Are you curious on what fabric I decided on? I'll have to keep you hanging a little while longer but I will tell you that none of the options that I showed you previously were the winner. 

Hope you have a great weekend - what's on tap for you in this last weekend in April?


  1. It's so fun to win something, isn't it! The book looks great and I love Traci and her style. I'm off to check out her Pinterest board.

  2. You lucky, girl! I remember when I won a book, I was so crazy excited when it came in the mail, my son asked, "How much is it worth?" Ha! Can't wait to see your fabric choice, you have me curious! I needed a reason to head to Pinterest... :)

  3. Yay! What a great book to add to your design library. Can't wait to see what is shakin' in your BR!!!!

  4. You are going to love that book! It sits on my coffee table and it's full of the best images and ideas! Hope you have a great weekend!

  5. Congrats on your win, Holly! Looks like a great read. I'm going to have to go check out more of Tracy's work!!

    No worries about not posting 3 times this week, its actually making me feel better. I only got one done!!! Have a great weekend:)

  6. Congratulations, Holly! Now I want to find out more about Tracy's work: that light fixture you featured above is just gorgeous. Hopefully you'll find some time to enjoy the book this weekend!

    Oh, and I've bestowed a little blog award upon you. The Liebster Award.
    Thanks for all your support, Holly and have a great weekend!

  7. Congratulations Holly! I'm very happy for you, and I know you'll get great use from this book... isn't Traci the best? I have been off my posting schedule this week, too, but you know what, it actually felt good! I might be changing things up around here :-) Have a great weekend, and I'll be back next week to see what you're up to!!!
