Honor Roll

Sometimes I come across something so cute/sweet/charming/funny/pretty/inspiring/lovely that I just want to share it with you.  These are the things that have made my  honor roll.

* Not to imply that plus-sized can’t be gorgeous. I just wanted to clarify in case it came across the wrong way.

I also write for Babble’s Family Style blog. Here’s what I’ve been sharing there…

The (Mini) Bathroom Fixtures are Here

Hmmm. I wanted them to look like candy, but um, they don’t. They look like badly glazed dollhouse furniture.

Do you think I should try to repaint the fixtures, or leave them as-is? I do like how luminous the glaze is, even if it is terribly uneven. The bathroom will be the small room on the second floor of my dollhouse. I think I’m going to use that gold patterned paper as wallpaper, and I’ll probably make a different mirror to go above the sink. The ceiling will either be wallpapered along with the walls, or it will go shiny gold.

I’ve been thinking about this whole dollhouse challenge. I think there are two ways for me to go about decorating mine…

  • Tastefully decorate the house so that the only way you could tell it’s a miniature is with a coin in there for scale. Design each room like I’d design a real room, just scaled down.
  • Go crazy and kooky. This is not a real house, dang it! Why not have gold ceilings and pink fixtures and hot pink stairs with striped runners (not that I’ve decided yet)?

I’ll tell you, I think the second option sounds like a lot more fun. It’s a fantasy! Why not fully embrace that?

How many of you are working on dollhouses along with us? How are you approaching yours?

Orchid/Army Feather Rug


If we didn’t already have a pink rug in the living room, I’d snap one of these up in a second.

Maybe the person that wins the room redo will let me put one in their home!
They come in blues and neutrals too, don’t worry. I won’t force my love of pink upon unwilling subjects. But really, the pink one is the best one.
