forlikeeveringraySometimes, it takes few words to make an impact. Especially in the case of art. 

I like these words. They can be a great opener. And not just for my recent confession (Forgive me, father, for I have sinned. It's been ... for like ever since my last confession).

Right now, this puts a smile on my face. How fun is this cotton rag poster to decorate with? I think I need one for my office.

It gets even better than that .... especially, if you are Lisa Sherry.

The well-deserved recognition of the super talented Lisa Sherry Interieurs makes it to Lonny magazine for the May/June issue. I am beyond thrilled for the amazingly fabulous design team!

I have known for a long time (and witnessed firsthand with the work in my home) how very special the vision, approach and execution of Lisa Sherry Interieurs is. No doubt you will fall in love with the inspired creations in this charming Minneapolis home.

maurapeterscandlesDuring the holidays, I do a fine job shopping for others. However, I have to admit, I pick up more things than I should for myself. This is one of those little luxuries that doesn't cost a lot and goes a long way. You can give and receive one of these wonderful candles from Maura Peters this holiday season.

Key Lime Cucumber, Citrus Geranium, Twigg'n Berry, Apricot Fig, Moss Pear, Vanilla Grapefruit, Clary Sage Sandalwood. Are you kidding me? I have to choose? Well, if you select the travel kit, you can pick your top four scents. I love the Black Candle and the Spa Candle. Gorgeous! The blown glass vases are meant to be kept and enjoyed for years and years. Once your candle burns out (which will be forever), place the vase in the freezer to help the wax release from the glass. Then wash it with soap and water and voilà, it's ready to use for just about anything your heart desires.

Maura Peter's candles burn evenly and cleanly and smell divine! Perfect for a styled home!

With 26 years under its belt and well over one million participants, the Race For The Cure raises a significant amount of money and awareness for the fight against breast cancer each year. Yesterday’s Race For The Cure event in Charlotte, as well as other cities around the country, not only celebrated breast cancer survivorship, but also honored those who have lost their battle with the disease. Many thanks goes out to those companies who participate in Breast Cancer Awareness month and donate to the Susan G. Komen foundation.

Mei Xu and all my friends at Blissliving Home are supporting this incredible cause. Through October 31st, Blissliving Home will promote two complete collections featuring soft pink tones, the color of the ribbon symbolizing the fight against breast cancer. 20% of orders placed on the featured products during this promotion will be donated to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

As an additional bonus, Blissliving Home will offer customers free shipping. Simply visit here to participate and enter the code SUSANGKOMEN at checkout. You will also receive free shipping with this code.




Blissliving Home has also provided these two gorgeous and stylish decorative pillows for two lucky msf members. To enter, leave a comment letting us know how you’ve been touched by this terrible disease. Two winners will be chosen at random on Friday, October 9th. Good luck!

While October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, I encourage you to think pink every day of the year.

I've yet to meet someone who doesn't love Target. It's just one of those stores that has something for everyone. Even the style inclined can find pieces to mix into their wardrobe, such as accessories, for that high-to-low look we've talked about. What other store offers you groceries, toys, office supplies, jewelry, clothing, shoes, home goods, bed and bath accessories, furniture, electronics, camping gear, exercise equipment, pet supplies, cosmetics, appliances and more? On any given day, if I happen upon Target, I can find at least four friends there at the same time. Unbeknownst to Target, they offer a bit of a social hour, as well.

Now Target adds more excitement to our lives by introducing their newest home collection, Dror for Target. Dror Benshetrit’s unique collection is both affordable and functional. Perfect for small spaces, the products lend a cheerful touch to a room and will not break the budget. Here's another reason to visit your local Target store. Go shop and have fun!
