{ Matchbook }

The latest edition of Matchbook is out and it is fabulous, as expected.  I think there are some really stunning photographs in this issue, and it's worth a peek for the photography, let alone some of the noteworthy finds. A taste of what's inside...

{ Show me Art : Show me Hope }

The disaster in Joplin, MO is very close to my heart because I've planted my roots here in Kansas for the past 7 years.  As with any tragedy, it's hard to imagine the devastation and daily impact for those who have lost so much.  I was delighted to find these lovely prints being sold by moosylvania, with 100% of the proceeds going to the southwest missouri chapter of the united way.  You can contribute and make your purchase at the moosylvania Art for Joplin shop.  So sweet.  Show me Art : Show me Hope.

{ Stenciled Floors }

I've been loving the stenciled floors I've been seeing for quite sometime, so I thought I'd see if I could round up some images to share.  There are so many possibilities for stenciling floors, and I am liking what I am seeing...just not sure if I have the energy, but gaaahhh...these are gorgeous!

{ Layla Grace Playtime }

Just playing around with some fun pieces from Layla Grace.  I love the mixtures of traditional and rustic that they offer, but think it's even more fun to mix them unexpectedly and see what you come up with.  I need another home with many rooms so that i can express all of my different tastes and ideas!
