Daily Favorite Pin – Gary Riggs Home bedroom

As I was perusing the Pinterest Home Decor page today, I saw this bedroom and it stopped me in my tracks.  I just wanted to climb right into this bed.  I also love that the lamps and side tables are different heights, but it works with the light of the lamps being at the same level.  I’m still working on my ability to mix patterns within the same space as this room does so well.

Upon finding the original source (, I discovered that every bedroom on the designer’s page gave me the same feeling.  While some of them are a little too decorated for my taste, there are certain design elements in each one that draws me in.  A few of them have a very masculine-woodsy-cigar room vibe…and I’m totally diggin’ it.

As for the room above, I don’t know that Hubby would be super excited about the yellow, but I am going to hold on to this one for inspiration once we purchase our next home.  The walls are neutral though, so I may attempt it in the rental we’ll be living in for the next six months.  Maybe I can find a way to work in my current obsession – navy-and-white horizontal stripes; or navy-and-white chevron.  I know chevron is all the rage right now, but I’ve loved it since I saw a designer (I believe her name was Loni?) on Design Star do it on one wall.  I don’t remember which season that was, but I haven’t had cable in almost 3 years so it was a while ago.  Before Baby A was born, I had time to keep up with it by watching online, but that’s not really a possibility right now.

(OK, it’s getting late and I’m rambling, so I’ll just stop now.)

See ya on the flip side!

Daily Favorite Pin – IKEA Spice Rack “Bookshelves”…

If you know me well, you know I am quite the book hoarder.  It doesn’t matter if the books are for me, the boys, Baby A, or gifts I might give sometime later on.  I hope to instill the same love of reading in our children.  I’m working on the boys, but they are kind of hit or miss.  Baby A loves books right now and I want to keep that interest alive.  Once we move into our new home I want her to have her books on display so that she can reach for whichever one she wants.  I saw this on Pinterest and think it is a great idea.

Here is my favorite “pin” from Pinterest yesterday:

31 Ways to Pray

I came across this link on Pinterest and think it is a great inspiration.  We need to pray specifically and individually for our children.  The article references thirty-one bible verses to use each day of the month.  I believe that our prayers should not be mechanical and something we say so many times that it becomes second nature, but these verses will be used as a guide at first and put in my mind different prayers that my children need.
