Tree Houses

When I was little, we had a tree house in our backyard -  we called it the Blue Jeans Club (it consisted of a few pieces of 2x4's nailed over a bent tree trunk) but it was pretty cool to us. Check out these tree houses!   I love the spiral staircase, kinda magical.

Beever gives an amazing illusion to his drawings, so that the objects appear to be three dimensional rather than flat as they actually are. Check here for more information.

Pantry, be mine.

Kim over at Desire to Inspire has a post about her gorgeous and oh so organized pantry...I love how there is a place for everything and it looks chic too! PS the pantry comes complete with doors, so it can hide everything and just be an amazing piece of furniture in disguise. 
Deep looking drawers too.
Lots of room for her dishes and glassware
A cool side area for baking pans

Getting the boot

Aside from the cool factor, these boots look oh so warm. Thank you to the designer Ilse Jacobsen.


I was tagged awhile ago by Jane from the lovely blog Ill Seen Ill Said The task was to list 5 things I love every day. If I take out the obvious; my family, my health, then it is the little things in life such as: 
1. Breakfast with my husband
2. My coffee
3. The light in our apartment
4. My walking commute to work through gorgeous central park
5. Reading all my favorite blogs and newspapers online

Early Birthday

Our wonderful Mom threw an early birthday dinner for me and my twin sister over Christmas. This is pre-candle blowing
This is post candle blowing; I love how we have the same expressions after we blew out the candles and the chocolate flakes went ALL over the table.

The best before and after...

I love before and after images of just about anything; a room, a bathroom, an old sofa etc...but this one is genius. I love how the base was kept but turned into something so different. It is from a beautiful blog too. Happy Tuesday xo
