a handmade gift and living space updates

Lucky me!

I may be biased, but I think I might have the best in-laws on the planet. My mother in law made me this adorable felted purse. She has always been into sewing and this year she learned how to knit and felt things. She also sewed two other adorable little purses for me. Just out of the blue for no reason. I feel so loved :)

I also wanted to share an updated picture of my crazy art room (it is never this clean by the way). I bought this rug from target because it is so bright and fun. It makes coming into this space feel like home to me. I sometimes worry if my love for patterns can get out of control in some parts of my house, but I figure an art room should be a reflection of what I love and be inspiring. Isn't it fun? 

Lastly, here is a photo of my living room. I told you I like pattern. I had been eyeing the green pillow from Pier one for a couple months. It finally went on sale to 25% off. Patience pays folks. Abner was kind enough to pose by the fire place. He loves being the center of attention. 


  1. I really love the office (even if it is abnormally clean!) Where'd you snag that desk? I love the shelves on the side...

  2. Love that rug in your office!

  3. I was on the Target website this afternoon drooling over that same rug! You know what stopped me, I was afraid of having too many patterns...ha ha ha

    Your living room and art room look adorable!

  4. The desk is from Pier One. I got it about a year ago, so I don't think they carry it anymore.

  5. I'm going to hire you to be my interior designer. Someday I want a house as cool and eclectic as yours.
