Theme Builder Layout

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.

Theme Builder Layout

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.

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

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.

    You can’t fool me. She is one of my favorite, along with you. Just so you know I have that cart and as soon as my wall gets put back from a plumbing leak I will be doing that with it.
    Thanks for the inspiration

    Oh I “heart” this house too :) I am definitely going to make the trip to the closest IKEA, which for me is in Maryland, but it looks like it is worth the trip. Well, I am going over to Lola B’s.
    Have a blessed day.
