I obviously still need to add pictures to the frame, and I want to paint a long horizontal canvas to go under it. Maybe that will be Sadie's Christmas present. I'm sure it is what she's hoping for. :)
Here's my crib skirt that I just sewed. Please ignore the wrinkles. I need to steam it. That's brown grosgrain ribbon. It looks dark and flat in this picture. I followed my friend Erika's brilliant concept for crib skirts- adjustable, perfect!

Bethany did the flowers herself, and they were beautiful!
These cupcakes from Meredith were awesome, and enormous, which I love.
Hey readers (all 4 of you)!
I love anything that combines design and psychology. I went to an ASID meeting last week (the professional association I'm a member of) and it was all about color theory- my FAV! During the whole presentation, the entire color spectrum was spread out behind the speaker. Nothing makes me happier than seeing all those beautiful colors and possibilities! I did get to learn some fun new info about color and psychology, which was super exciting. If I tried to convey it here, you probably get pretty bored.
Nonetheless, here's your dose of design and psychology for today. Thanks to Stephen and the WSJ for the article. I like the Newsies (open the gates and seize the day!) vibe of some of the new fashion collections. It's a subtle luxury- really great materials and tailoring. I'm just so glad we're moving past all the bling. Let's all just be real people- not the real housewives of Atlanta (which I hypocritically watch- at least I'm honest about it, right?).
This post would be more fun with some eye candy...
Dearest Ralph Lauren:
Hermes goes sporty.
Thanks to style.com for all the photos. I recently got to help my friend Amy style her nephews for a photo shoot in this style- so fun. View it here.

And here is a picture of the dresser we picked out. We got a killer deal on it from the Eclectic Garden in Raleigh, and we bought the turquoise knobs from Anthropologie. Oh, and did you notice my cute rug in the picture above?
It's finally coming together! Now we just need a baby!
