Crazy for Chevron

I have been seeing this zigzagtastic trend that is chevron in everything lately and I have to admit, I'm totally on board and in love.

This funky print makes such a statement in home decor, clothes, food, you name it.

I am thinking about incorporating it either in my laundry room or master bathroom makeover project.

I think I'll start with this rug from Urban Outfitters. I always gravitate towards this color. Hmm, with splashes of red or mint green or perhaps yellow and gray? The possibilities....

I've also been eyeing these baskets from Target. They come in several colors and I could really use new storage options for my laundry room.

I'm still narrowing things down but I am definitely loving this trend :)

Pinspire Me - Keepsake Box

Two projects in one weekend? Say what? I seriously don't know how that happened. I don't have much time for arts and crafts these days. Lily will barely give me time to take a bathroom break and bring out anything and Ava is all up in your business in a hot second.

I did manage to get these keepsake boxes made though and I think they turned out great. I just need to hang them now.

My inspiration:

Shadow box, scrapbook paper, and a hat. Easy peasy.

My version:

The hats they came home from the hospital in. I love it :)

Pinspire Me - Silhouette

I am in the process of refreshing our photo collage in the living room since 1) half the the pictures fell off the wall and 2) because there are no pictures of Lily up there.

I want to incorporate more than just pictures so I have on pinterest looking for inspiration.

I came across these silhouettes of dogs and loved it!

Too easy not to make so here is my version and I think it will look great once I get all the items collected for the collage.

I call it "Ode to Paxx" (our doggie)

I heart hearts ❤

This is just a coincidence that Valentine's day is next week and it's like heart explosion everywhere you look, but I've had a crush on all things hearts lately.

Hearts are so girly and I just can't get enough of it these days. Here are a few things I've come across that I've been eying.

1. Heart tee. Too cute.

2. Heart Toms

3. Nail art. Simple and just enough detail

4. Adorable flats.

5. Fun heart scarf

6. Recently bought this blouse in a blush pink. It's perfect.

7. In love with this J. Crew sweater. But too pricey for me so I think I'll look into making it.

8. Kate Spade heart bangles. Love.
