{insert catchy title here}

For a while we have been trying to figure out how to spice up our living room, it needs a pop of color and we couldn't decide on anything...until we walked into Pottery Barn the other day and fell in love with the fabulous green they have this season...




so we now have an accent wall painted in this fabulous color...


and a few rugs thanks to Ikea



I am now on the hunt for a couple of lamps and some pillows in this color and am trying to be frugal about it...as much as I love Pottery Barn, $45 pillows and $125 lamps just aren't going to happen right now!


Pixie seems to have recovered quite well from the dryer sheet incident...she is as spunky as ever and didn't miss a beat :)


After making an altered book at our crop I am totally addicted to them now as I have made 2 more this week!



Alright, I am off to the fabric store to see if I can track down some fabric in that fabulous green...hope everyone has a great rest-of-the-holiday weekend :)

I fell in love with that green when I got my recent PB catalog with the green desk on the front. Love it! And, it looks so pretty on your accent wall. Love your altered books too!

You're so talented, you could make cooler pillows than what the Pottery Barn has to offer. Love what you've done with the paint/accent color! Fantastic!

Glad Pixie is still okay! Phew!

I've seen lots of fabrics with chartreuse this year. I'm even doing a quilt with mainly dark pinks, blues and chartreuse accents. I hope you can find the right fabric!

I picked up a lamp with a great shape at a thrift store. It had an ugly pattern, so i bought a high adhesion primer and krylon spraypaint in a fun color... voila - amazing, expensive looking lamp. total cost: $30.
