Good morning rock star.

I hope the sun is shining where ever you are.

Spring has almost sprung and it’s another random Saturday.

Before we start.

Before I discuss all the randomness that was the week of 3-14-14.

Have you seen the new IKEA collection?


Coolest ever……in the history of ever.


I know spring has barely peeked around the corner….

….but I’m already thinking of summer.

Like this.

Key lime.

Here’s my new favorite place to be inspired….Farm &  Pretty.

She lives in Australia and her photography is off-the-charts.

I want to learn to take pictures just like her.

Good thing she posted a tutorial with all her tips.



First key lime and now ice cream?

See….I told you…’s the whole summer thing.

Make your own cannoli ice cream…

And that chandelier with stripes inside the shade?

Hello inspiration.

This is what the gatehouse wants to be when it grows up.

Happy Random Saturday to you.  🙂

  9. Welcome Saturday. Well the Sun was shining earlier,and it is 50 degrees; but the weather people are telling us not to get use to it, it is going to get cold again, possibly some snow. So I am just going to go with the flow……….I know Spring is about to arrive. Have a great weekend and Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all.

  10. Key Lime Shots !! Cute idea..Happy St Patty’s Day..The sun IS shinning for now..

  11. I love the silver and gray! That is the perfect shade–pretty but not gloomy.

  12. I like starting off my day, by being called a rock star; it really sets things right. Dessert in a shot glass, makes for even tastier deliciousness. Oh how jealous, I see Farm and Pretty and I want to bask in the sun too; all the greenery and the fresh fruit picking. Ahhhh I’m off to fix my pompadour, eat some ice cream and stare at the grass so it will grow.

  13. I just pinned the cannoli ice cream!! Cannoli and Italian goes hand in hand. Thank you so much for mentioning it — Yum ! Yum!!

  14. I love these posts! YOU are the rock star.

    Love Key lime anything. I made Key lime cookies for my daughter’s St. Paddy’s Day brunch tomorrow…yum!! And they were green even if they weren’t yum.

    So much inspiration in these rooms. You might remember stopping by when I was struggling and sweating and moaning and groaning over redoing my living room…I’m not as creative or decisive as many (ahem…and that means you!!). So, I’m happy to say it’s completed for the most part and I would love for you to stop by tomorrow or Monday when I get a post up, to have a look. I would so appreciate your thoughts and any tweaks or additions (or minus’s ) I should make. 🙂


  15. Thanks for sharing KariAnne, love your style! Happy Sunday to you!

  16. The semi homemade cannolis look amazing!
