Shhh...I'm Pretending this is MY House <br> {get ready to swoon, girls}

Welcome to my home. I’m finally all settled!

OK. I know, I totally can’t fool you. You know I’m lying.

This house is FABULOUS and I just can’t help myself. I have to show you.

Shhh...I'm Pretending this is MY House <br> {get ready to swoon, girls}

Isn’t this just so amazing?

Her front door? WOW.


Those windows?

Those perfect wood walls? ADORE.

The chalkboard and the cart and the sticks and the furniture? Oh. SIGH.

Shhh...I'm Pretending this is MY House <br> {get ready to swoon, girls}

She put a sock and buttons on her chandelier. And it looks chic, of course.

Shhh...I'm Pretending this is MY House <br> {get ready to swoon, girls}

And she has a ruffle on her pillow. I HEART this pillow.

I heart this house.

But, it isn’t mine.

It is Kasey’s, over at Lola B’s. She is amazing. She is oh-so-chic. And her photography and blog is stunning.

I heart Kasey.

She was kind enough to let me drool over her house and share it with you. I think I might scare people when I stalk their houses.

But you should definitely go visit her to see more.

Everything she does is LOVELY. Everything.
