Pinterest, Guest Suite, & a book.

Don't forget tomorrow August first is the last day to enter your questions for Annie Sloan!

Just last week I joined the new craze called Pinterest. I must admit at first I was kinda confused but now I am hooked! I love how I can just save all my inspiration photos to my boards and be able to trace where I got them from which comes in real handy with this blogging thing!:) I have several boards started but the one that has the most Pins is my guest bedroom inspiration board. I am on the quest to tone the guest suite down and to make it flow better with the rest of our home just in case we do end up selling next summer. It is ALWAYS best to get a jump on that kind thing instead of waiting.

I have had this inspiration pic actually saved to my desk top for like ever and had to hunt it back down for my Pinterest board. I LOVE the feel of this room and that head board is to die for. My other inspiration pics which are on my board but I am not going to post here because I have not asked permission is from Dear Lilly! I LOVE Jennifer's blog and her home is beyond AMAZING! I just do not know how she does it all and keeps up with her beautiful baby girls and a photog business and a blog! Major Kudos to her!!
I just fell in love with The New Nursery. This space is truly a master piece  and thus I am now on a quest to make our guest suite just as inviting and comfy and magnificent if that is even possible! Yes, I am proud to admit that I am on a copy cat challenge of course minus the baby crib and all!;) I hope that Jennifer does not mind!

This led me on the hunt for bedding which I have been looking at for months. I LOVE the Simply Shabby Chic line at Target. It is all girl all the way! So last night I ran up to Target because I talked The Hubster into loaning me the dough to purchase the new bedding because well it was on sale and I have yet to sell the current bedding. He agreed and so I stood in Target with Oldest & Littliest patiently waiting...well as patient as any 7 and 5 yr old boy would be in the middle of a bedding isle with girly bedding can be who where also holding their new Transformer DS games....trying to decide just what way to go. After abt 15 minutes Oldest said "Mom just buy it all and bring back what you don't want." I said brilliant idea son! I must be teaching him well!;)

This set came home minus the dust ruffle which they do not carry anymore and which I do so need. 

This set came home as well.

And so did this linen duvet because well I liked the ruffled shams!:) Needless to say The Hubster was not all that thrilled that I came home with all of these though I knew exactly what I was doing and would be returning most of it. The sale was over Sat so if I waited or picked the wrong thing I then would have to wait months for it to go on sale again. With the pressure mounting I ended believe it or not returning it ALL an hour later after purchasing it and can you believe it I purchased something entirely differ!!?? I came home and The Hubster just shook his head. What can I say other than he HAS to love me cause well he signed the paper work almost 10 years ago!:)

You will just have to wait to see what I actually did bring home!:) I am now working on what to get for the guest bath!

Oh and this book also jumped in my cart while at Target! So far a very good read. SUPER funny!

Hope your weekend was a great one! Today was The Nana's birthday so Happy Birthday Nana! Wish we could have been there to celebrate with you!

Linking up to Metamorphosis Monday over at Between Naps on The Porch and the following linky parties:


  1. You are so sweet, Pamela! And I have to tell you that made me laugh about your son saying to just buy it all and bring what you don't like back - you have indeed trained him well, haha!

  2. Sometimes that's the way to go, Pamela, especially if it is something that could be sold out by the time you got back. Can't wait to see what you got!

  3. I cracked up reading about your son saying bring back what you don't kids have said that to...and I have done it! Lol!

    Love that inspiration pic!


  4. I have been eyeing that line at Target too but don't have a room to use it in...yet! I can't wait to see what you put together for your guest room. Thanks for the lead on the blog, Dear Lillie. She has such beautiful style and I will enjoy seeing her lovely blog as well.

  5. I "need" to make a trip to Target!!

    I read The Help in June and loved it! Might even read it again! I've seen the movie trailer. Had no idea the book was to be a movie until after I read it. I hope the movie is as good as the book!

  6. I loved 'the Help', I'm looking forward to the movie.
    Looking forward to seeing what bedding you picked out! If you still need a dust ruffle and want a neutral color, try Homegoods, I got a nice white quilted one from there for our bedroom



I love when ya stop by so leave me a comment if ya have some time! I always try and respond but sadly enough sometimes I am unable to return the love due to noreply blogger status.
