Fun Updates for My Home Office: Some Additions and One Subtraction

Home Office, Decorate with Hats

Welcome to the 601st Metamorphosis Monday! It's been ages since I shared some updates here in my home office. I put this room together many years ago, Over the years it hasn't changed a ton, but there have been some little updates and tweaks along the way. The furniture I chose for this room so many years ago was Pottery Barn's Bedford furniture. Bedford furniture was designed to mix and max to accommodate any size office. If you love the look of the Bedford … [Continue Reading...]

My Favorite Summer Bags and Many Are Currently On Sale or Clearance

Wicker, Rattan, Bamboo Handbags

I've always had a big love for handbags in woven natural materials like wicker, rattan, straw, and bamboo. Growing up in the south, I saw a lot of those bags being carried throughout my childhood into adulthood. Even today, wicker bags are still so popular, a classic style that I don't ever see going away. I have a small collection of wicker/rattan/bamboo bags and I'm always tempted to add another one when summer comes around.   My collection at … [Continue Reading...]

A Budget-Friendly Summer Table Setting

Cobalt Blue Flatware

Welcome to the 619th Tablescape Thursday! Happy Summer! For this week's Tablescape Thursday, I've created a very budget-friendly table setting.

We're out on the porch this week and it's another "about-to-rain" kind of day. We've been having a lot of those lately. I'm not complaining though, it's been … [Continue Reading...]

Add Stars to the Ceiling of Your Bedroom, Living Room or Theater Room for a Magical Experience

Welcome to the 600th Metamorphosis Monday! Last week I shared this photo of a bedroom with a star-covered ceiling. I loved the look of this so much, I ordered a few stars to see how they would look on my bedroom ceiling.   After doing a little test run with a few stars, I decided to go for it. I ordered a bunch more stars from different companies and got to work placing them on my ceiling.   I didn't think my bedroom was that big but … [Continue Reading...]

I Love These Shorty Pajamas, But If You Sew, Is This Normal?

I always love tweaking things to make them a bit more functional or even just a little most pleasing to the eye. Since I've been staying home a little more than usual, I've found myself noticing even the smallest of things that could use some improvement. One of those recently was the nightclothes I sleep in each night. For winter, it's always heavy flannel PJs because I love the extra warmth and coziness, but during the summer I usually go for something … [Continue Reading...]

Only Hermes Can Make You Feel This Spoiled When Buying a Book

If you've been reading BNOTP for a while, you know I love collecting books about decorating and gardening. In the last few years, I've also purchased a few books on designer fashion, another topic I sometimes enjoy. I don't buy a lot of fashion books but recently I saw one online that I'd heard about. It sounded really cute so I decided to order it.   This book is a bit unusual because it's a pop-up book and from one of my favorite brands/designers, … [Continue Reading...]

Starry Starry Night, Turn Your Bedroom Into a Starry Haven for Sleeping

Stars for Bedroom Ceiling

Welcome to the 599th Metamorphosis Monday! Have you ever ordered something and when it arrived it exceeded your expectations? That doesn't happen very often, does it? I've been wanting to create a starry sky effect on my bedroom ceiling but my first attempt didn't work out so great.   At first, I ordered one of those machines you see online that projects stars onto the ceiling. I should have taken photos of how it looked, but I was so disappointed … [Continue Reading...]

June Favorites & A Miracle Cleaner That Saved My White Cabinet from Ruin

We're already halfway through July and I just realized I never shared my favorites from the month of June. These Lilly Pulitzer inspired masks are at the top of that list. When I'm out and about these days, it's mostly just for a stop by the grocery store or the bird store for more birdseed. Every single time I wear one of these, someone compliments them. I had to stop by my Endocrinologist's office yesterday for routine blood work since my last check-up was a … [Continue Reading...]
