Curious Details + strep throat

WOW…we have been sick.  So sick we had to cancel a superhero party.  That is a sad kind of sick.  But my little superhero was a good man about it and we are going to pick up with celebrating another time.  His teacher and friends were so kind about it and he is finally well (knock on wood) so that is all that matters.  Then mama got it, bad. Really bad.  Like I had to call a friend to drive me to Urgent Care one morning.  Let me tell you it DOES take a village when mama gets sick.  Especially when Daddy doesn’t feel great either.  Thank you to friends and parents and Aunt Kim for helping us out.  I am finally on the mend and Henry seems to be avoiding it all! Keep us in your prayers.

SO, blogging has not been a big priority.  Thank you to my patient clients for waiting for replies and designs. I am on the mend and will be back in the saddle ASAP! In the meantime I want to share some beauty with you from Curious Details, one of my favorite blogs and designers!  Becki Griffin is a kindred spirit and I am so proud to call her friend! I know I have blogged about her gorgeous office before but her photography just stuns me so go back and catch up on her blog if you aren’t a regular.

{I love this recent post she did on styling one shelf area in three different ways!}

She is a class act and so talented.  She got some great shots at Round Top and a funky cool video at the Magnolia Pearl booth! Check it out! And Becki makes a guest appearance in the Down the Road show video from Round Top that my friends and I made…hope to share that very soon! And thanks Becki for letting me share your are proof beauty can and does bloom in the suburbs!

Marburger Blogger party + San Antonio report

Are any of you going to the blogger event at Marburger Farm tomorrow…in conjunction with Round Top Antiques Week?  I hope to be there!

{these photo cracks me up} photos from Marburger blog..good luck with your shopping!  Drive carefully.

And as promised, a few photos from  mySan Antonio trip…super fast trip but I love that city and my clients that live much fun. I did not get photos at Bigmama’s house for several reasons.  It was raining and bad light.  Also the Texas Aggies were playing  on the tv and I didn’t want to ask too much of her with that going on.  Three, her handsome husband and sweet daughter were there and they would have thought me nuts.  Caroline was already questioning me about safety issues related to my placement of certain accessories.  Also Bigmama has holes in her walls…looks like someone has been there with a machine gun and then spackled. That is what happens when you have to “shoot insulation” into the solid wood walls of and old house.  She is not thrilled with the look of the holes but the painters are coming soon and it will be warmer this winter (or keep the air conditioning in,  however you look at it).  I will be back there in January to see her new paint and built-ins and slipcovers. I promise to get photos then.

In the meantime I have to share with you this house I visited in Boerne, Texas, near San Antonio.  This home has the true Texas “Hill Country” style and I am thrilled to be working on it.  As you can see its already got so many neat things going on…gorgeous stone work and other features and I am just helping to freshen.  One of my favorite things in the home is their collection of shed horns from their ranch in South pretty grouped all together. I lovehow God created these animals to shed their horns..amazing to me.

Oh and I nearly cried when I saw and the kitchen cabinets and sink…I love the cabinet hardware nearly as much as the sink.

Once we finish with drapes and freshening, I will show you more. One last shot of their “dog house”  check out the tile and cute..this was not styled at all just wanted to share this fab idea of putting a dog area under the stairs! Great idea Natalie!

 Some of you have asked about our dog  that I mentioned earlier in the summer.  That did not work out because little lab puppy turned out to be big Great Pyrenees dog when taken to the Vet…luckily the boys didn’t know about it yet and big dog went to live with someone who could properly train and raise him…a GP is just too big for my home and budget but so


But one day we will get a dog and y’all will be the first to know..In fact, the dog that sleeps under these stairs really has me wanting a lab…She is so sweet.

Y’all have a great week!
