One Hip Baby Momma

I feel like something is in the water, I have four girlfriends who are pregnant and another friend who just had twins!! Whatever you are drinking ladies I need some, I'm not having any luck yet. But this blog is about fluff not fertility so back to it.......I just attended a baby shower for one of my most stylish friends. She is having a boy and they are naming him Cash....so cute. Her theme for his nursery is yellow and black which in turn was also the color theme of the shower. Instead of the usual baby gifts, books were requested instead to fill Cash's future library. 

The place card can later be used as a bookmark, part of the "library" themed shower.

Isn't the bartender cute?

This is where the magic happens.....ahahaaa

Baby's wardrobe. I LOVE the pig. 

The sofa turns into a bed, just in case. It is from DWR. I really love how the room doesn't scream "I'm a boy" and doesn't look babyish. 

The playroom. The books she received have a lovely home on her PB kids bookcase!


Garages Are So Overrated.....

When you can turn it into a pool house instead!!! Okay, first off I know I have been M.I.A. and I apologize. Hopefully one or two of you still read this occasionally. Maybe it is because on my days off I am by the pool instead of in front of the computer. Which inspired this post....

The backyard that first inspired me, featured in both C Magazine and Bazaar (I threw out both mags but I believe Mary McDonald or Ruthie Sommers decorated the home this pool belongs to). A lot of homes in LA that were built in the '20s have detached garages.... so I love this conversion and it is so much better than a musty garage! 

Tia Zoldan featured In Cottage Living

Cottage Living has a major crush on Tia Zoldan and so do I! She has a fabulous eye and great taste. Aside from living in the same neighborhood, we share a love for starting with white walls/sofas and letting accents be your pop of color. Changing throw pillows is a hobby! But back to the post....

Cottage Living featured Zoldan's backyard (her third appearance in the mag) and it brought me back to the pool house/garage idea.  (It also includes some great recipes for a backyard bash, I'm dying to try the Southern Godfather recipe.......it sounds like a great cocktail).

I love the chairs and umbrellas!

My favorite combination of colors....

Tia you are going places! I can't wait for your website to be up and running. If I run into you on Larchmont and invite myself to your next poolside soiree, don't think I'm a wierdo, haaa :)
