March Madness with BHG

Happy Monday!! I am soaking up some Interior Design knowledge at the Design Blogger's Conference, but wanted to stop by & let you all know about a really fun challenge I am participating in with Better Homes & Gardens.  They have chosen 16 of their favorite projects from 16 bloggers & are pairing us all together in a March Madness Bracket Competition.  So everyday for the next two weeks you all have a chance to vote between two projects each day... Mine doesn't come up until next week, but I wanted you all to be in on all the fun!  So click here to see all the participants... I think you will recognize these projects!

Want to know which project of mine is going toe to toe with some of the best out there?!?!!!!!


Our $3 brass bowl turned fab kitchen pendant is my little contender in this big competition.  Hence the post upgrade a few weeks ago.  I'd like to think that it is small, but mighty.  At the end of the bracket competition, the final four (that's a basketball reference right???!!!) will head to BHG Headquarters to compete in a hands on challenge there!!  How fun would that be?!  So will you all help send me?  I promise I'll make you proud, wink wink.  I will be sure to keep you all up to date on voting days.

Also, be sure to head over to East Coast Creative today to enter a project into their search for the next blog star!  We will all be choosing our favorites over the next week.  So go link up!!  I'd love to work with one of you!

Thanks loves!!

  3. Your little pendant has always had my heart! I just entered the CWTS and I'm gonna be honest, the chance to be "mentored" by you as a huge motivator. #big fan :)

  4. Your pictures are horrible. Why no full shots and all vignettes?

  5. I'm sorry you feel that way Sarah. I honestly love vignettes so I probably tend to focus on those more. I am looking for a wide angle lens now to be able to capture wider shots in our small home.

    Hope you are having a great week!

  6. Already saw you over there and will definitely be voting!!! You are so right - that light is small, but mighty. It is such a fantastic project and adds so much to your kitchen!!!

  7. Wow, Sarah. I'm so sorry. It must have been awful to have been raised by vultures. But, hey; you fared well! Here's a lesson for you: there's this skill that civilized and sophisticated (forget that; we'll just go with decent) people have. It's called tact. If you don't like someone's pictures, you can either do the gracious thing and stop looking at them, or if you are genuinely curious as to why they are shot the way that they are, you can phrase your blatenly rude opinion as a question. Here's a great example: "I noticed that most of your photos are vignettes. I was just wondering why you chose to crop them that way? You are such a talented designer that I would love to see full shots of your gorgeous rooms!"

    Might I also recommend picking up a copy of Emily Post's national best seller?

    Kristin, I just, for the first time, stumbled upon your blog. Your gracious response to this ridiculous post has guranteed that I will be back! Your home is lovely, and I am inspired! Have a blessed day!

  12. what a fantastic house tour! I absolutely love the green dresser and your daughter's wall closet. I am going to follow your link to the painted deck and see if it is something that we can replicate here despite our limited DIY experience!

  13. Wow! Thanks so much for sharing, I've been looking for an affordable version forever!! What is the difference between the "narrow" and the "full width"? I'm seeing slight differences in measurements but nothing too significant -- would you say the version you bought is comfortable enough to be a dining chair? Thanks in advance!

  14. Ours are narrow, but not uncomfortable. For dining I would recommend the full for sure. Still a great buy!
