This past weekend, the Twin, my aunt and I ran the Nike Woman's Half Marathon in DC.  It was a great weekend.  I did not train at all for this event.  My only goal was to finish in less then 3 hours and I did.  So I was happy.  The Tiffany & Co necklace at the end wasn't so bad either.

Gallery & More

I was determined to get something done this weekend.  I have some projects to finish so I can get outside and enjoy the weather now that it is getting to really feel like spring.  Project #1 was to get the pile of frames hung up on the wall.  

I went back and forth between a gallery wall and some picture ledges and obviously went with the gallery wall as you can see {here}.  I am very happy with how it turned out!  Most of the frames are from Target.  I went back to get a few more to fill out the wall and all Threshold frames were on sale and there was a Cartwheel offer too!  SCORE! (couch pillows also from Target) 

Here's a top shot of my coffee table.  The box is a fancy way to hide my remotes.  I knew they needed a home but didn't want to see them.  This box was perfect and cute!  My shamrocks from St. Pats are still going strong.  I love having a natural element on the table.  And yes, that's a toe ring.  I may be last person with one but I have had it forever and think my foot looks funny without it.  

I did a {Stella & Dot} trunk show on Sunday morning.  It was a Baubles, Bubbles, Bags, Brunch & a Birthday celebration.  And let me tell you this hostess didn't miss a beat!  This may be the best brunch bar I have ever seen!  

I am loving the spring colors everywhere!!  So glad the sun is out and it's starting to warm up!

Carried Away

Remember the scene in Sex and the City when Carrie is gifted the Vivienne Westwood wedding dress and later she tells Big "the dress upped the antsy"? Well I finally got a new coffee table over the weekend and I can't believe how much it has changed the room. I mean it's a real adult coffee table too, from West Elm!  I love Ikea like the rest of us but there comes a time when your furniture needs to grow up too.  So now I need to decide what to do above the couch. The tulips, ironically from Ikea, need a new home. I got some great frames this weekend from Target (baby steps) and now need to decide picture ledge or gallery?  All opinions welcome! Please see inspiration photos below. Thanks! 

My new table. Not to be confused with the inspiration photos below :)
