A collection of silly things:
Oh, hey! It’s your cat’s diary.
How to accidentally upload a naked picture of yourself as your Facebook profile picture.
“I guess the proper way is to wear a bikini and place your hands on your hips…”
I will not eat that much food again. Apple. Poutine. Pickle Chips. Ugh!
Room to grow! 15 modern boys’ rooms.
What do you think? Could chartreuse be the next ‘it’ color?
The new accessories at Room & Board are looking mighty fine. I’m loving those prime vases!
Looking for some Halloween ideas and inspiration? Here are the best Pinterest pinners to follow.
Another of my posts for American Express, turned into an infographic! It’s kind of weird, kind of cool to see. Check it out: Defining Success.
A stunning before and after, for all of you fans of unpainted woodwork.
p.s. Thank you for all of the comments yesterday, and in general. I’ve been reading them all, but I haven’t gotten a chance to respond to any yet. I had to knock out the articles I had due (“my writing, elsewhere”) and then get back to painting Eleanor’s room. She has been sleeping in August’s room while I’ve been working on hers, but she’s looking forward to having her room back (which means I’ve got some more painting ahead of me). I should have time later today or over the weekend though, and I’ll pop back in and answer any questions that came up!

Brides throwing cats. Love it.

I love The Roots! And Miley really does have a good voice underneath all that bad behavior.

I visited Room & Board recently and loved everything – EXCEPT those prime vases. I just kept getting a red solo cup redneck stemware vibe. I love your blog, though.

i love and been following your blog for years…..but i have to say I don’t like the link on brides throwing cats. Though it is meant as a joke and sane people don’t actually do it – some people take it literally and will find cats to throw. There are too many animal abusers out there, and such links just encourage acts of cruelty.

I enjoyed your post for American Express on defining success. I’m going through a lot of changes in my career and it’s a little scary right now, but I know using some of your advice will be helpful in redefining myself in the world. Thanks.

So fun to see your Halloween Pinterest Pinners list published. (fun to say, too!) Sooooo fun!
I’ve been following you for awhile but wanted to congratulate you on a beautiful blog! I’m a newbie blogger and am amazed at what can be accomplished by creatives such as yourself. Thanks!

Chartreuse!!! This has been my long time go-to accent color. From my home’s start with stark midcentury to where it is now, layered midcentury-boho-regency! love it with PINK! (also orange, dark blue, gold/brass…) Glad to see it get some props! Also, wins for the hardest to spell color…ever.
