I would like one for Christmas

Rug from here

Don't know about you but I have gotten much more practical about my Christmas list the older I get. Even though I joked with my family about getting diamonds what I really need is a new microwave, a carry-on suitcase, a headlight for my car (they are freakin' spensive!) and some down filled pillows in the Euro size. What I would like to add to my list is this baby in the 9x12 size for my living room.

Too early?

I know, I know, we haven't even celebrated Thanksgiving yet, but... I was using to Post Office outpost in our local Hallmark store and as I was walking out these babies caught my eye. How could I resist? I gifted them early so that the little darlin' can sport them the whole holiday season.

Sneak Peek: Nursery for Brittany's Twins

There has been lots of progress at the Hanlon household on the nursery for the twins. It is going to be sooo cute and the room has been completely transformed from its previous status! Here are a few sneak peek pics. As you recall the color is Old Navy by Benjamin Moore.

Favorite Product! Chewbeads

Ok, I freakin' love this product! Chewbeads were created by a veteran of the fashion industry after the birth of her son. Her son kept putting everything in his mouth and so she decided to make a safe, non toxic, and fashionable jewelry line for new moms. The beads are soft because they are made of silicone (the same material that pacifiers and nipples are made of) so babies can nom-nom on them during teething or they can be used as a focus toy during nursing. Chewbeads come in bright and cheery colors and are super affordable at $29.50 for necklaces and $10.50 for bracelets.

Navy Nursery, Bed Rest and Veterans Day

Just stopped by Brit's to say hi as she is resting up. As I was walking in the painter was on his way out and so I got a sneak peek at the twins nursery. The walls are an amazing dark blue, Old Navy by Benjamin Moore. Kind of reminded me of this nursery and since it is Veterans Day something red, white and blue seemed fitting.

Learned a little lesson about Veterans Day today and how the holiday ended up on November 11th. During WWI the opposition came together in talks and decided that on 11/11 at 11:11am fighting would cease. Word spread to the soldiers and they in turn saved up their ammo, the 11th ended up being a terribly gruesome day as each side was fighting for every last inch in a bid to gain territory. Thank you to all that have fought for our country and those that are still in the field.

UPDATE: This is what the wall color looks like up in the finished room.

Ordinary Objects

That coffee filter light fixture sure was crafty - I like the way these ordinary objects are used in unexpected ways for decoration.

Skateboard decks as shelves

Don't know its function but the mailbox attached to a bedroom wall is quirky
