I haven't been watching much TV lately, well other than baseball, so I hadn't seen much about the new HGTV Green Home giveaway so when I saw an email with some snapshots I had to head over and take a closer look.

The design is so amazing. Lots of color palettes I am saving to inspire my own graphic design.

Please attend a virtual craft fair supporting a great cause

Many of you know, I am a cancer survivor, leukemia a.l.l., to be precise. Since I can remember, the Leukemia and Lymphoma society has been working hard to make a difference in the fight against cancer. I have a friend riding in my honor, gearing up to ride in a BIG Team in Training event (100 miles).  

She is hosting a virtual craft fair which offers you the best of two worlds, support handmade AND a great cause. You can view her site online here. Once you choose what you want you can paypal her the money and she will make arrangements to get you the goods.

I just ordered two of the wood candle holders. Throwing this out there--- if anyone wants to buy a gift certificate from me anytime in the month of May I will donate the money to Kristin’s ride. You can buy them on my blog,

does your couch need a little update? a couple amazing pillows can update the whole look of your room

New job is going great, people there are great, starting some fun projects and I LOVE getting home around 5:30 each night! It is going to give me a lot more time to spend here and on my etsy site! 

I have been saving cute throw pillows to my favorites for weeks now and I started to see a trend. I am totally digging yellow and blue together. Also had to throw in the super cute chandelier vinyl that would be so awesome above the pillows.

Tell me what you think. What color throw pillows do you have? Which is your favorite?
