THIS AND THAT





We are back on the "this and that" train today......

I can honestly say I did not get too much done on the weekend.....as much as I tried I could not organize my thoughts to stay focused.

I did go walk the Atlanta Beltline Sunday morning and lawd it was darn hot.

After we did 6 miles we ended up running 1/2 a mile around this track.....

Maybe that is why yesterday was a wash for me.....haha.

Except we grilled dinner and I'm gonna let you in on a little secret....
First of all get this Salmon from Trader Joes......it's yummy.  

But the corn.....take some Franks Hot Sauce and mix with melted butter.



Brush it over the corn and grill it.  You will know it's done when it starts popping!!  Brush more on it before eating.  Duh 

And there's a first....a recipe from me.  Mark your calendars...

And I got a little present from a friend...

Cute Huh?

I have been helping Michael Ladisic with his new office.  We had the bathroom covered in this Romo Omexco black and white herringbone grasscloth wallpaper.


It's like this paper was made for me right:)

For this dead space we added shelves and I crawled all over Atlanta looking for a few trinkets to fill them.....


There was only one problem....Michael is a Ford guy NOT a Chevy guy so the picture of the Corvette was out!  Really....it's just a secondary bathroom Michael....Nope.  Take it back.

#staytruetoyourself

So we decided to take a picture of his truck and go on Framebridge.  I have never used them before so I'll let you know how it turns out.


The camera on Iphone 7 is amazing!  I can't wait to see the outcome.


Speaking of black and white.....below are some pillows from one of my favorite trade vendors Sugar Feather.  




Oh baby.....I'm giddy.

But.....since we are on the subject of pillows here are some others I saw at the Atlanta Market.

Moss Studio

I am not sure how we went from exercising....to corn on the cob to pillows but then again...it's a look at how my brain works.

PROJECT UPDATES





I'm pretty psyched that it's Friday!  It was a long HOT week here in Georgia......and after riding around all day for work.....I am arriving home exhausted.

Normally I would walk Cami around 4-5 pm and I'm having to wait until 7:30-8 because of the heat!

I also tried a new workout yesterday and whoa....I am feeling it this morning.


I think I will mix this in with my Orange Theory and spinning for some variety.

I have a few updates for you today on 2 projects.  It seems like once all the basics like furniture, rugs and lighting are in place it's the art that will help to define the space.

It usually takes some time to figure out what that should be.

For one project I turned to my friend Linda Donahue.

Here is the space!



And here is what will be going on the wall above.




I am SO EXCITED!!!!

Some of Linda's other work that can be found on Etsy.



 
I have been a big fan of her work for many years.

For the same project the powder room got wallpapered and it was a game changer.



You can see it has a slight metallic feel.....



In another project I found an artist who's work I have fallen in love with....Scott Herr.

Here is the dining room....all white with this gorgeous Circa Lighting chandelier.






This 4ft by 6ft beauty is going on the one solid wall....


I love all of his work....




I'm pretty pumped about both of these projects and can't wait to finish and get them photographed!

I mentioned that Cami was sick and got the news that peach pits contain cyanide....[WTH?] so after making some custom dog food [which did not seem to help this time] I headed to the vet. 
X ray's and blood work showed nothing but he said it was probably acid reflux.  

OK.....

Pepcid at night before bed for 10 days.   Seems to be working.



Could have bought a designer purse for what that cost me.

Oh yeah...a couple of Netflix shows we have blown through....

Gypsy and Shooter

I have decided that Ryan Phillippe is kind of hot.
  
Both are very different shows.

GET THE LOOK




It's been a busy weekend....the mart was open and I'm on overload with all the new product that is out there.

Cami had diarrhea so I had to make a batch of rice, turkey and veggies to try and get that situation under control.....

A few of you wanted to know where to get the dog fabric that I used for the curtains and pillow in the last post.

I'm gonna let you in on that secret....






But then I took it another step....cause....well I am here for you guys in such a big way:)

Except this one was for me.....Sheepies and coffee are 2 of my favorite things:)


I found these on Spoonflower!

Could you die!


My sister has a schnauzer!





For you cat lovers.....





There....next time you get upset with me cause I cuss or start defending faux flowers think back to this post and how I appealed to your softer side!

Next up is this designer I found on Instagram....and I think you will agree when I say she gets me.

Um......Cynthia Hayes 
This project is crazy good!


I love every single detail....white check....black check......texture check.....BOOM!




I can't believe how much I love this backsplash.....

Do you agree?
