Friday I'm in Love with a Touch of Grey

Well...don't I have quite the song title collection going in my post header this lovely Friday morning?  I now have the Grateful Dead song "Touch of Grey" stuck in my head, and I think it may be there all day.  LOL.  That's ok - I love that song anyway.

Now that I have gone off on a total tangent, let me get back down to it!  There are some weeks when it gets to Friday morning, and I realize that I haven't had a whole lotta time to blog surf that week, and it gets down to the wire.  This was one of those weeks.  So, this morning, I just started poking around to see where my mood takes me.  Today, it went grey - probably due to the blustery weather I woke up to this morning.  In any case, I was really feeling these projects today, they called to me, and they are beautiful.

This Key Rack was my inspiration for all of today's picks.  Rosemary from Villa Barnes did such a wonderful job on this.  It looks so aged - like it's been around for a hundred years!  

I am just loving Jaime Lyn's Bedroom Makeover over at Crafty Scrappy Happy.  Girl - good for you for having the guts to paint your bed - I need some guts like that.  I have a dining room table in much need of some TLC right now!!  Thanks for the motivation - this room is gorgeous!

Melissa from Shabby Love turned this old crib mattress into a beautiful inspiration board for her craft room.  Not only do I love the mattress, but I love the items she uses for inspiration - so creative and gorgeous!  

OK, so we all know where I stand on Nurseries right now - I'm a might bit obsessed.  Doesn't this room look like it came out of the pages of a Restoration Hardware catalog?  Kristine from The Painted Hive not only did an amazing job with the room, but her photographs are beautiful as well!  Rooms like this are the reason I cannot decide on a theme for little peanut's nursery.  There are too many beautiful options!!

And last, but not least, this New York Subway Sign Dresser brings me back to my days of working in Manhattan.  I love that city, and any daily reminders I get of it make me smile.  This dresser from Lindauer Designs is no exception!

  4. Hi Jenn. Thanks so much for the feature. I have been so flattered with the feedback on my nursery. You're so right though, it is almost impossible to decide on a theme with all the wonderful inspiration out there.
