Mad about you.

If a picture paints a thousand words, this label paints my life lately. Ken saw this sitting on our kitchen counter on Saturday afternoon after I spent a long day of homecoming dress shopping with our 14 year old freshman daughter and literally laughed out loud in agreement. I was looking forward to sharing a glass with him later that evening but we both got a little manic and couldn't put the tools down on our office remodel long enough to sit! I'm excited to show you all the little changes we've made in our little house but it will be a few more posts before we pull it all together. Hopefully I don't go completely mad before it's all said and done.

Thought it was about that  time again to download pics from my cell phone and show you Chumps the cool things I've been seeing when I'm out and about. I'm always thinking about you Chumps even on my "days off". I guess you could say I'm mad about you!

You know my obsession with clocks, don'tcha? Here's one I found at World Market. Soooo presh. I think I gotta have it for my new office! Do you have a wall for one of these?
I liked this one too. A little more traditional in styling and would be great in a den or living room.
This red one's an oldie but a goodie. They have a similar style to this at Hobby Lobby but all of these were at World Market. Even though I haven't personally been big into red lately, I know a lot of you Chumps are. This is cute and cottage-y and would be fun paired with some light blue or robin's egg blue accents.
I think this one above is really similar to one I saw in the Pottery Barn catalog a while back. This quaint and aged looking clock would be great in an all white room that's layered with texture, not color. Muted greys, tans and creams.

Okay, how fun is this ampersand?
Sorry the photo is blurry but I love how unique and oversized this is. It would make a nice piece of wall art in an office with a photo collage of all your earthly travels.
This might be overkill all in the same room but I loved these letters that are adorned with maps. I snapped a pic. to remember to make these myself with paper mache letters from Hobby Lobby.
In a perfect world without dog and cat hair, spaghetti spills and budgets (wink) "Crusty" would snap up this settee and replace my dining chairs on one side. I loved the tufted button back and the light dusty grey upholstery.
Super cute rustic table I spotted for Ken to mimic when he has time to build me a 'homework' table for the basement.
I actually love the idea of this type of stool with the table above. I would've bought this one if there was another just like it, but it was clearanced out and the only one left. I did find a similar looking one for a client of mine at JC Penny online. $68 is a great deal btw for this one!

Another cute table for a small urban kitchen or a corner in a living room or lower level to be used as a game table. Don't love the chairs they paired it with but can picture it with  four parsons' chairsupholstered in a large graphic print.
A clearance item entry bench at World Market. Only one left. Great price I thought. Neutral in style.
Got my eye on these chairs for my new office!
Adorable lamp!!  Love the color. Love the style. Hobby Lobby. Wait 'til it goes half off. Foolish to ever buy anything there not on sale. :)
I love the ideas I've seen recently of repurposing pallets. We've done a few projects of our own using skids but I was uber impressed with this cutting edge designs spotted outside a great new coffee shop called 6eight at the Colonial Clock building in Zeeland. Check it out sometime soon. 
That's it for now Chumps. Check out my "Room For Change" FB page to see what I brought to my booth at Not So Shabby last week. Happy Fall to you!
