Happy Monday!!

How's everyone doing on this new Monday?

I'm super happy today~

it's my daughter's birthday
Mackenzie Cole...

she's 15 today!

and she is just the most awesome
daughter anyone could ask for....

she's sweet, compassionate, caring
witty, super funny, smart,
and generally, a dream to be around....
super low key, but at the same time
high energy!
I love her!! :)

we've got an awesome day planned
for her!

but while she's momentarily detained.....
out to breakfast with Mr. T & T
{one of our family traditions is Dad takes them out to breakfast
on their birthday :)}

 I wanted to check in with

are you in love with gustavian style?
do you dream of grey & pale blue

 are you crazy over worn wood,
distressed grey cabinets...
and time worn linens?

oh I know you are....
just thinking about it makes your heart
beat just a little faster right??? ;)

you see stacks of ironstone dishes and
layers of grainsacks and you're off dreaming...

oh I am right there with you!
so in love with it all.....

there's so much wonderful inspiration
out there...on how to create these looks
& finishes.....

what an amazing invention pinterest is huh?
and all the fabulous bloggers who
are so talented & share their projects
with us!

I hope you are inspired today to
do something fabulous!

to move forward on something amazing
in your home....

even little baby steps....
each day brings you a little closer to your dream...

I'm off now to celebrate
with Kenzers....

Have a great day!!!

There is nothing more lovely than family traditions. Breakfast out with her Dad sounds like a fantastic way to start a birthday to me. Happy Birthday to your daughter. Yes my heart goes pitter pat when I see distressed old painted chairs. I have a giggle every time my Grandfather comes over and wants desperately to paint all of my chairs for me because they are all 'old and chippy'. I love the grey and blue colour palette too. Come and visit me on my blog sometime and say hello xo
