I cannot BELIEVE that it is the END of May! Really, truly can’t believe it! Someone may have to come pinch me! This month has been a turmoil of craziness… my first work conference, the unexpected “hey y’all are moving in a week” phone call from my boss, our one year anniversary (whoot whoot!) and on top of all this my debit card was hacked! That’s right we’ve been trying to do all of this with no access to money!
After all of the craziness the blog has been a quiet escape… and y’all have been wonderful through it all! So supportive with nothing but kind words and encouragement! Even though it is 10:41 at night and I am typing this from my hotel room I know it will all work out! So without further ado… let’s get to the round-up!!

A Vintage Suitcase Makeover! If you’re anything like me you are loving the vintage suitcase trend that’s going on right now. I tend to be drawn towards anything that contains things (read as: stores all my crap out of sight) so vintage suitcases are perfect for me! In addition to larger suitcases I have found adorable children’s suitcases, hat boxes… even a vintage bowling ball bag! The key (for me) is finding that perfect colored bag… the one that looks amazing with all the rest of my pretty things … read more!
6 Creative Ways to Decorate with Bed Linens! Bedroom décor does not have to be an expensive matter of tasteful design, bizarre objet’s d’art and exquisitely precise shadings of wall color. A very good effect, both tasteful and inviting, can be achieved in a relatively simple manner, by making the most of the everyday items that any bedroom needs. Your bed linens, for example, provide a wonderful opportunity when it comes to bedroom decor… read more!
How to Make a Globe into a Guest Book for your Wedding! The one decision I didn’t have to work to hard on was my guest book. I knew that I didn’t want your typical paper bound book filled with signatures. I was afraid that it would get stuck on a shelf in the back of a closet somewhere, collecting dust… completely forgotten about. I didn’t want my memories to be dusty! I wanted something that would be seen everyday… out in the open… not just in plain sight but part of the decor… read more!

I made one… read more!

P.S. A very happy birthday to my little bro who turns 25 in 3 short days… when did we become adults?! Who gave approval for that?!
