a happy list

Well hello there, Friday.

Full disclosure:  You may have noticed some technical issues with the blog over the past week.  We recently upgraded our website servers and encountered a few glitches in the process.  It got pretty whacky…to be honest I was sweating it there for a while.  I was very worried about the blog (and my newly hired programmer who was jumping hoops of fire) and I started to feel kinda like this.

But we made it!  And we’re back up and running at 200% – ready for more posting fun.  Now it’s on with the show!

On a personal note…I have to tell you how much I loved reading all of your comments in the giveaway - so many anniversaries, graduations, and special life events.  Some challenges too.  My favorite part of this blog is reading your comments.  I enjoy learning about everyone’s lives and seeing what all is going on – it’s a great connection on my end.  And it makes all the hours of writing/researching/image uploading soooo worth it.  While I may not be able to personally reply to every comment, please know that I read every single one and LOVE them!!  Thank you for always being so generous in sharing a small part of your life.

So thanks for making me happy.

I made a happy list for YOU…

-  Love this stripey gift wrap.  Aside from making a beautiful package, it would  be adorable in a frame under your child’s silhouette.

-  Speaking of silhouettes, this is a great rustic DIY silhouette idea using paint and plywood.

-  Love the message and colors of these turquoise, aqua and mint pencils.

-  Waiting for this cute baseball cap to go on sale ; )

-  What a great tutorial on hand-painted linen towels…gorgeous house-warming or holiday gift!

-  A surprisingly easy, fun, and delicious way to eat steak and potatoes…just made it for my fam and it was a hit!  Recipe here.

-  This grey greek key fabric for $7/yard caught my eye!  Also love it in chocolate.

-  Still wearing my zebra bracelet from tar-jay.  Sassy and fun.

-  I love this formula for how to design your nightstand, chest or end table.  Bedroom design via.




Happy Friday, friends!

    OMG I love that house. I was just debating with my twin sister on the house and shutter color. I was totally white house, black shutters but there is something so beautiful about white on white. I am such a fan of color but lately I have been drawn to white!!! So classic and timeless!

    Thank you Seleta-after following this blog for three years, I STILL don’t know how you do it!

    Love the links and especially the design formula! I’m getting to the age that sometimes I need to have someone ‘draw me a picture’. hah.

    Last year I discovered Tim Arnold, a fantastic silhouette artist. I was fortunate to have him cut my son’s silhouette in person. He cutout a gorgeous silhouette before I could finish reading The Little Blue Truck to my son…I was shocked. He is so talented. This is my favorite piece of art in our home. It is something I will cherish forever. http://www.silhouette-man.com/

    The last photo in your post is my bedroom, designed by moi – not sure what it comes us as By SimplySeleta when you mouse over it. Just thought I’d point that out.



I'd love to hear from you!
