Favorite Things

Thought I'd start off this week by showing you a few of my favorite things lately - some are new and some are older things I've had around that I've just arranged differently in the house. Here we go…

I love my Taylor Ceramics vases. They are pieces of art along with being functional.  I'm constantly rearranging the mantle and decided to put my two ceramic pieces next to each other and really like them like this. I've got them in front of a few empty frames I picked up thrifting and a basket I had picked up at Home Goods a few years ago.

I have so many prints saved that I've thought about using in the girls' rooms, but was really drawn to this Rise and Shine print by Stephanie Ryan. Not only is Stephanie a talented artist but she's also from PA. I love to support local artisans whenever possible. I was drawn to the colors in this print as well as the quick, cute quote. She has a lot of really pretty prints in her shop.

House stalker alert! Right here! This house has been worked on since we moved to the area and I've always been drawn to it. I finally got a chance to snap a photo when there were no cars around. The new portico structure I believe was just built recently and it's hard to see in the photo but I love the color scheme they have going. (Please tell me I'm not the only one that does this)

Lastly, I've been on a bows kick for my girls. Melany from Jellabee makes the sweetest bows and clips. I've gone a little nuts getting them in different colors, fabrics, and shapes (she makes the most adorable glitter hearts too), but they are such great quality that I know these will last us a while. I've bought a few hair clips here and there and have been disappointed, but I'm very impressed with the quality of these. And she has the option of putting a bow or clip on a headband for those little ones without much hair yet :) Win/win!

I also just got a fresh shipment of fabric samples in the mail - trying to nail down some decisions for upholstery fabric and some pillows. Stay tuned!

On a side note, we were out of power from early Wednesday morning until yesterday around 4:30. We had gotten some snow and then got sleet/ice on top of it and basically had the second biggest power outage in PECO history. Over 500,000+ customers were without power for days. The numbers have dwindled but there are people still affected and I hope they get restored very soon. We were so happy to come home and that the house warmed up fairly quickly. 

Ok, let me know what's on your radar these days. 


  1. Fun goodies Holly! Your little are too adorable, especially with those bows in their hair. And WOW, that was some power outage, glad it has been restored. Must have been a little chilly.....!

  2. Glad to hear you got your power back! This winter doesn't seem like it wants to leave!! Your daughters are precious!! Stay warm!

  3. Your girls are adorable! I too am guilty of house stalking and and photos on my phone to prove it. :)
