It's Thursday....time to CREEP!! πŸ‘€ Where my creeps at? Are you ready to get lay-ed....??? FLAT lay-ed, that is. πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚πŸ™„ (I know. It's going to happen all day. Prepare yourself. πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ˜‚) Even though this term makes me giggle like a prepubescent tween, I love me some flat lays! So, for tonight's themed feed creep, let's go with #CottonStemHeartsFlatLays! A flat lay is a perfectly styled photo of beautiful pieces taken from up above, so tag YOUR flat lay style photo with that hashtag, and my creep cohost and I will save our final feature of the night for one of YOUR tagged pics! The official creep starts up tonight, but you can post and tag all day! .
Speaking of cohosts, how could it NOT be the King of the Flat Lay, Mr. Jesse Lauzon @jesselauzon?! πŸ™ŒπŸ» Just look at this gorgeous and gorgeously styled collection of McCoy vintage pieces...that I for reals gonna steal someday. 😍 Jesse @jesselauzon has an eye for styling a seriously awesome flat lay photo, and his subjects are to die...all that vintage yum!! Can't. Deal. πŸ™€ Y'all need to go check him out to get some flat lay inspo, and then let's see YOUR flat lays for #CottonStemHeartsFlatLays! πŸ™ŒπŸ» See you tonight, creepy creeps!

Sharing some personal family photos and a few humorous keepin-it-extra-real mommin' mysteries I've finally solved tonight on ye ole bloggy. πŸ˜‰ Come say hi and let me know if you agree! Link in IG profile! πŸ‘†πŸ»

Speaking of mommin, I can mom hard in this comfy outfit from the #CottonStemCapsule, and I've linked all the sources for ya! Just click the blue link in my IG profile, and then click "Shop My Instagram!"...all shopable posts are always there for ya! These jeans are THE most comfy skinnies, and I'll tell you why: those knee holes! I can squat and kneel and crawl and sit criss-cross-applesauce like no one's beeswax in these, because they don't squeeze the knees! πŸ™ŒπŸ» Ain't no one got time for the ol' squeeze-knee. πŸ˜‰ Also...I think I'm close to owning every color of this shirt. 😬 It is my very favorite tee! Complete with the Cotton Stem Front Tuck, of course. πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ˜‰ Come say hi over on the blog for a bit if you can! πŸ™‹πŸ» .

...put them literally EVERYWHERE in your house as decor. Because...lemonade. Or something. πŸ€”πŸ˜‚πŸ™„ Happy Wednesday, all! Here's hoping we can make lemonade out of this day as well! πŸ‹πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ‹ #CottonStemQuotables #farmfreshflatlay

The topes wanted to come snuggle the book wall. Awww. πŸŒ³πŸ“š As I always say, I get itchy to get switchy, and I kind of like the change over here...for now, anyway. πŸ˜‰
.
Wanted to give ya a head's up: tomorrow on IG stories, I'm going to explain a bit about how I created this wall, the inspiration behind it, and the tips and tools I used to bring it to life! If you're curious about how to create a bit of installation art like yonder πŸ‘†πŸ», be sure you tune in, and I'll show you all the things! πŸ™ŒπŸ»

So so so loving these new side tables from @gablelane! πŸ’— You guys know how much I love layered textures, and these scalloped tables added so much to the room without overtaking it. Because I can't leave well enough alone (and because I'd intended these for a different space...but loved them so much I wanted them in our bedroom!), I painted the wood tops white and distressed them, and I added just the tiniest touches of white to the galvanized scallops, using an easy dry-brush technique. You just dip the end of your brush in paint, wipe it almost dry on a towel or scrap surface, and then you tap and lightly brush your piece, only depositing a tiny amount of paint as you go to give a light, paint-kissed finish. πŸ˜‰ We added some old chippy wood to the base so we could store blankets and pillows next the bed in wood boxes, and I am DIGGING these tables from @gablelane so hard!! They were so beautiful as they came, truly...but you know I can't NOT play. πŸ˜‰ Hope you buddies are having a great Tuesday!

Okay....please don't be mad. πŸ˜¬πŸ™πŸΌπŸ˜‰ On the blog tonight, I'm chatting about why I had to take down the hanging flowers over this buffet, and I wonder if any of you ever feel like I did in your own homes...? πŸ€” Also, I'm taking you on a tour of the very lemon-y dining room...complete with sources! πŸ‹πŸ‹πŸ‹ I'd love to hear what you think--I'll be over on the blog for a bit (while watching Bachelorette...duh πŸŒΉπŸ˜‰), so come say hi! Love chatting with you guys over there. Link in IG profile! .

(Oh, and PS: I won this little lemon tree like three or four months ago from Page @charmingcape and her fun giveaway, and it totally inspired the entire dining room look! πŸ‹ I've had lemons on the brain for months! πŸ˜‚ Thank you, @charmingcape!)

Happy Monday, buddies! Good to be back on IG after a day off, and I hope you guys had a lovely weekend. πŸ’— Had to share a few of my faves that are on sale this week--woo hoo! These jeans are like pajama bottoms and half-off, the tee is like a pajama top and on major sale (....do you see where I'm going with this...SO COMFY and cheapo πŸ™ŒπŸ»), and I love this bag so much. I mean, I really only use two bags: this one and then this one's cross-body counterpart. I know. I'm super adventurous. πŸ˜‰ Anyway, these pieces are total staples for my summer #CottonStemCapsule, so I thought I'd let you know a couple of them are on sale! (*Sizing: I got my normal size in the tee, and the blue might be sold out for now, but the PINK one!! I also linked this blue one in the new cold-shoulder version they just came out with....need. 😍 I went a size smaller in the jean. It's a loose fit, but I was swimming in my normal size, FYI!) Have a great day, friends!

For twelve years (tomorrow), I've been his Mrs. πŸ’— Four kids, three moves, two major career changes and one death of a parent have tried to take their toll, but we are better because of it all, the happy and the hard. I'd sleep next to him forever and plan to. πŸ’— (Also...we might now sleep on two twin beds placed close together because of his restless leg syndrome like a couple from a 50's sitcom πŸ™„...but ya best believe we know how to push 'em together...if you know what I mean. Bowchickawowow.... πŸ’ƒπŸ» Too much? Meh. Where do you think all these offspring came from, dang?!?! πŸ˜πŸ˜‚) Cheers to you, Mr. Cotton Stem. πŸ˜‰πŸ’—πŸ’—

Logging off in a bit to take Sunday off social media stuff, but I'll see you buddies next week! Fun stuff comin' atcha...! πŸ™ŒπŸ» #CottonStemHeartsCoffee ((*Sources tagged*))

Some love it, some don't get it, some would throw 'bows at a old lady to get to it first (...ahem...I mean, not MEEEEE...πŸ˜³πŸ˜¬πŸ˜‚)...so what's the big deal, anyway? Today on the blog, I'm chatting about all things Rae Dunn (the good, the bad, the ugly), where I got most of my collection, and I am interested to hear your thoughts on some of mine. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰ Link in IG profile--come say hi if you're around!! .

You guys. This. Wallpaper. πŸ™€ I'm in love, and I don't care who knows it! Most of you know that every square inch of our home is wood tiles (Style Selections in Natural Timber Cinnamon from Lowes), so I can't hop on the cement tile bandwagon with the cool kids. Blerg. πŸ˜• But!! When I saw that @mkwallpapers had created a cement tile wallpaper...and in NAVY?!!? Sold. Done. Boom. (It’s called Heritage Tiles, FYI!) Now, I'm not a wallpaper aficionado, but my MIL is, and she said this was the nicest, best quality wallpaper she's ever seen or used! My sweet hubs installed this for me for Mother's Day, and I absolutely love it. Kinda out of my norm...and that's why I like it. Nobody puts Stems in a corner. πŸ’ƒπŸ» To compliment the navy, I added a huuuuge vintage copper pendant and some copper molds, and I think the whole guest room project based around this cement tile-esque Milton and King wallpaper is just yum. Wanna be our guest?! πŸ˜‰ (*I've tagged all sources that aren't vintage pieces!*)
