A New Fall Bag?

So, I'm thinking of treating myself to a new bag this fall. As I won't be buying many new clothes until I loose the baby weight, I thought I a new bag might help me feel at least a little stylish. Here is the one I'm obsessing over at the moment. Sort of that boho look that I hear will still be popular for fall. What do you think? Enjoy...

Sofa Table Style and A Pic to Love!

Yesterday I was given a challenge. My mom bought a sofa table (at her go to place - Homesense)  and came over to look after my daughter for 1 hour while I went on the hunt for things to accessorize it with. Being 9 months pregnant, I wasn't sure I was up for the challenge - but took it anyway! Within 1 hour and 3 bags later I returned. My mom is what some might call picky or let's just say not shy to hide her opinions. Well, I'm happy to report that of all the trial items there is only 1 thing going back (a wicker basket which I'll probably keep for my place). Here are some fuzzy i-phone photos of what I came up with along with a picture I found that really has nothing to do with sofa tables but I just adore the look of this living room. Enjoy...

New brass pulls to be added...

One of my favourite items I found for the sofa table - at Indigo book store!

I'm obsessed with this pic. I want to find somewhere to add a desk like this.

My love. I have never really collected any sort of animal. That has changed. Now, I know the owl is a popular bird these days, but original or not, I still love him. I started collecting him when we moved into our house last summer. I'm trying not to go overboard with our love affair. But, here are a few of my favourites. Enjoy...

My lovely owl vase at my entry

My silver owl 

Camomile tea from my owl teapot - perfection

A little owl bling (necklace)

An owl print purchased in Montreal

My favourite owl of all (is dressing up my daughter as an owl means I went too far?)

New Items for the Nursery!

A couple weeks ago, we finally got a good start on our gender neutral nursery. Months earlier I had searched for the kind of look I wanted to go for and since we don't know if it's a boy or girl, it was a little more challenging but I'm lovin the way it's coming together. I wanted something fun, fresh, modern, happy and could be easily updated with a few touches once our little one arrives. So far, so good. I ordered a few more items yesterday and one more trip to Ikea and it may be pretty close to being done for now. As for any of the actual "essential stuff" for the baby - got to get on that one! Enjoy....

Material for Roman Shade

Fabric for pillow that will go on the glider (never a fan of those gliders!)

A fun and loveable print to hang
