Marcia Moran

I remember as a young girl wondering how gold jewelry was ever 'in'...
I take it back.
I get it now. 
And now, I want it.
Marcia Moran, your work is beautiful.


paint a book!

1. Buy 2. Paint 3. Enjoy

TJMaxx has some of the neatest paper goods.
Sometimes they are a bit marred or not exactly my taste,
but when I saw this 5yr-a-day journal I squealed!
Even though the cover was less than squeal-worthy,
I knew it could be helped!

The paint dries quickly and the tape is very forgiving!


bed's headboard

And all your future lies beneath your hat.

Women look chic with fascinators (think Kate Middleton.) and men look so attractive with fedoras. 

oo lala.

Beds need that 'cap' too! I'd like to build/make/nail a headboard for my bed when I move in two short months! Here are my two favorite looks...

Liking the extra glam look of the mirrors.  Perhaps its a long narrow (2 rows instead of 4) that tuck neatly behind the pillows? 

The polished and classic look is and has been so appealing. Tweed, herringbone, velvet.... mmm loving this.


a standard.

a standard in everything we do, participate in, and make a priority.

coral + blue

I love this outfit.
Kendi nailed this one.


Three Things Im into [April]

three things Im really into lately...
spending time with this guy.
playing UNO, enjoying live music, eating Orange Leaf...
anything with him is better!
fresh mozzarella can really turn a day around, ya know?!
My legs are staying busy lately! I walk to and from work, to the grocery store, around greys lake, at the mall...;)

What are you loving?


Prayer for a Little Home

I find myself reading Josh's books when I have a few moments of downtime and I'm at his place. I found an old weathered book of poems a few weeks ago and have loved exploring its pages.

This poem of home and simplicity stood out.

Prayer for a Little Home

God send us a little home
To come back to when we roam—
Low walls and fluted tiles
Wide windows, a view for miles;
Red firelight and deep chairs;
Small white beds upstairs;
Great talk in little nooks;
Dim colors, rows of books;
One picture on each wall;
Not many things at all.

God send us a little ground—
Tall trees standing round,
Homely flowers in brown sod,
Overhead Thy stars, O God!
God bless when winds blow
Our home and all we know.
