Inspiration Workshop // The Family Room

Inspiration comes from everywhere it seems. One particular place that I’ve recently found that is *FULL* of inspiration, is a wonderful site called Pinterest. For this entry, I’m using it to collect an array of family room/living room collections. I’m linking up for the first time in Gussy Sews’ Inspiration Workshop and this week’s prompt is Family Rooms, so I hope you’ll enjoy my collection!

I absolutely love the open floor plan of this room, and it’s still kept intimate with a cozy sectional.

Every house should have at least one window seat. It is a perfect spot to curl up with a book and a bunch of blankets on a rainy day. *Love*

Isn’t this the coolest trundle-bed you’ve ever seen? It’s so smart and functional in so many ways. It would be perfect for those who have a fair amount of overnight guests(and no extra bedrooms) and want to have something that can be tucked away. Beats a fold out couch any day!

I hope you’ve enjoyed a peek into my inspiration boards. If you really like this and want to see more, please feel free to follow the rest of my inspiration boards on Pinterest.If you’re on Pinterest already, let me know your username and I’ll check out your boards too!

Til next time..


Enter to Win // Gussy Giveaway

A lot of you may already know this, but I absolutely *LOVE* Gussy Sews. I think Gussy creates the cutest product and her customer service is out of this world! I personally own a few of her items, including one of the items she is giving away today!

Gussy is giving away four, count ’em, FOUR of her fabulous ruffly headbands. I own one of these, and let me tell you, they are probably my favorite headbands, and I’ve tried a lot. I typically have issues with the bands hurting my head or falling down, and these do neither. I can wear mine all day and totally forget about it. They’re great!

What I recommend doing right now is heading over to Gussy’s blog and enter to win these headbands! They’re in new colors and patterns perfect for the fall. I think I may have to pick up one or two for myself. ;)

Enjoy and let me know what you think! :)

One of my Favorite Blogs…

So I have been waiting{quite patiently, I promise!} for this special package to arrive and it finally arrived yesterday!

Let me back up and explain something. When I first saw this item, I instantly fell in love with it. I loved the pattern, the colors, everything! I also loved everything else on the site, which made it quite difficult to decide, but I eventually did. After I did, I wanted to know more about the person behind these adorable products. I started reading through their blog, and I can honestly say I connected with her. The more I read, the more I felt like I knew her personally, even though we have never spoken. And I promise, I say that in the least creepiest way possible. haha But honestly, I loved her writing, her humor, and her ethics. She creates the most beautiful bags, and has such a following! That is something I can only dream about having. But honestly, she truly kick started me. Reading through her blog gave me a positive outlook, and for that I thank her immensely.

I could go on and on, but she’d probably think I was weird. haha

But some of you may know her, or at least have heard me talk about her product before, but this is Maggie{aka Gussy}! I encourage you to take a look at her blog, take a look at her shop, follow her on Twitter, whatever you’d like to do, but you won’t be sorry. She’s a bundle of sunshine and will certainly lift anyone’s spirits. I *wish* I had her positivity all the time.
