The Weekend Wrap Up

image via: Eddie Ross - Modern Mix

This week was a tough one. Despite the joy of the One Room Challenge ending, real life took over in many other ways. I've got a lot to catch up with...

A (nother) great book that I've been meaning to mention is Modern Mix by Eddie Ross. A few months ago my friend and fellow blogger Elizabeth, threw the most beautiful lunch in honor of Eddie and his new book. It was a perfect early fall day and I loved hearing Eddie talk about this book and all the different design elements he put into creating it. You can read more about this day here.

I've been following Eddie's design career for years and have even heard him talk about inspiration and style in the past. Afterwards I always get motivated to try out new looks and ideas in my own home. Which is why I"m thrilled about this clever book, not to mention all the fabulous press he's received for it.  Modern Mix is broken down into several different categories, all intended to inspire you with your own home, table top and entertaining style. Congrats on a wonderful book Eddie!


It's so easy to get caught up in the "smoke and mirrors" of social media, which is why I loved this little reminder: Social Media vs. Real Life

Whenever Shea gives design advice, you can be sure I'm listening, and taking notes! 

Pretty obsessed with Albertina's new art discovery (and stunning purchase!)

I want all the pies.


Going through all my sweaters, I had to part ways with a heavily stretched out and pilled favorite cashmere v-neck, luckily this one looks a lot like the one I wore to the ground, and it's on sale! 

Have you ordered your Holiday Cards yet?! UGH, me either. Haven't even gotten around to taking a photo of the kids, I need to get on it.

Obsessed with this stunning serving bowl.
