Pretty things....

It's been another one of those weeks....



and in the whole realm of things...



something like my heart breaking over something that



really is not that big of a deal...



it's so silly actually.....



but when it involves one of my children..



it matters to me.



I wish i could stand up and shout out...



no..



this can't be happening...



but it's going to..



and how i wish i could write it all out right now..



so i could hear feedback from you...

but not today.



Change happens whether we like it or not.



Anyway.....



Pretty things are on my mind.



Like these pretty plates from Anthro....



4 of them to be exact.



Perfect for having a little lemon bar party of your own.




Pretty things like these chandie shades that i finally took some



photos of for you.



Remember the post 2 weeks ago that i told you about my



creative neighbor making these gorgeous shades...




I finally semi~dusted my chandie so i could get some decent



shots for you.







I even have a large one....



because i love pretty things.




I realize some of you like pretty too...



maybe you would like your own pretty shade...



or a few chandie shades?






we painted Lola's room last weekend.



ummmm.



okay...you got me....



i didn't mean we as in my husband and i...



but my fabulous painter guy did.



Can you tell the difference?




My little Fin and his bestie sure like to play in lola's room...



i don't get it...



i think he's like me...



and needed some pretty that day.





I realized last weekend that when Lola said



NO



to a pale grey room....



that maybe aliens had abducted my real daughter..



and brought some random girl in her place.



ahem...



but then my real Lola returned to me when



she said...



let's just keep it cream.



So she got a fresh coat of paint.....



a tad bit darker....



but pretty.



We like pretty things.





Pretty things are on my mind. I ran to Barnes & Noble this morning



to grab the newest Boho magazine...



which features Paris in the springtime.



I love Boho magazine.



Are you still here?



hello?



buehler?



If you are...and you need a bit of pretty today....



just leave a comment.



It's the i need something pretty today giveaway;-)



One lucky winner will get a custom shade {like above} or 3 mini chandie shades...



4 pretty plates from Anthro....



my favorite Tokyo milk lip balm from Anthro...

{i promise i didn't use it yet}....



oh...



and the current spring issue of Boho.



Blog or tweet about it...and i'll double your chances.

Hope all is okay - I love her cream room... stunning!!!

Della said...

I think that's hilarious about your son! When one of my brother's last visited me, he pronounced how much he liked my girly room and promptly put his feet on my coffee table. :)

Lovely giveaway!

Jingle said...

I am a big fan of pretties! They make me smile! I hope your pretties will make you smile despite the things that are trying to make you not smile.

erin said...

Your home is absolutely gorgeous... but HOW does one keep it so clean with children!

Thanks for a keeping my day pretty!

Brandie said...

((hugs)) We all have days like this. My mama bear instincts are hyperactive so I truly know how that feels. I hope everything turns out okay.

I love pretty things too and you are offering some good ones. Crossing my fingers some pretty things come my way:)

andrea said...

It has been that kind of week...and I think some pretty sounds...pretty good. :) Wonderful giveaway!

Dreamy Whites said...

I can hardly wait to tell my sister!! Oh & if I don't win is there a way to buy one of those shades from your talented friend! What a team you two make!

LouBoo said...

Ahhh I don't need the give-away (its an awfully long way across the Atlantic) but I like the pretty things and had my own craving for the same today. So I posted about ballerinas...hmmm. x

mandiegirl said...

I could use something pretty today...it's been a pretty sad day for me so far. Thanks for the inspiring photos.

erin said...

ooohhhhh......i love pretty, i do, i do!!

summertime said...

So very pretty and what an escape for this gray day!

Jennifer said...

Down to Earth - I always think of those words when I read your posts. Simplicity. It's as if you're a mom, a person I know - you grab me. My sons are grown but when you talk about your children I just sigh and remember. The shades are dreamy, the room and photos lovely... the boys - oh, boy! Jennifer

Anonymous said...

I love your blog...I am a 57 year old grandmother of 4, but I still remember going through all the feelings have...and you express them so beautifully!

Mommy Lisa said...

Jacky {The Sweetest Petunia} said...

I could use some prettiness today. Because today {so far} has been not-so-great. :(

Jacky {The Sweetest Petunia} said...

P.S. I retweeted your tweet about the giveaway - @thesweetpetunia

***LIZ*** said...

I'm the same way about my kids. I used to think I should be thicker skinned about things that happened or things people would say, but if you as the Mom aren't their number one supporter who else will be. LOVE those plates!

Teresa said...

Those shades are very pretty and I hope your friend starts her shop like you mentioned.

I think every girl needs pretty things. I am wanting to try and make a pretty skirt that I saw recently.

I think the best accessory to something pretty is springtime, everything is so fresh and new and is becoming pretty :)

Katie said...

I could definately use some pretty on this cloudy day :) I will blog about this giveaway when I get home from work tonight! :)

P.S. Lola's bed looks so comfy and cozy...makes me want to take a nap!

Fringe said...

dreamy cream for a little girl's dreams...beautiful.

whatever it is, this new thing that makes you want to shout NO, don't lose your hope for a better tomorrow....

motherhood is about heartstrings. heartstrings always being pulled and tugged and rearranged.

sending you love...and hope.
xoxo

Liisa said...

Pretty... Hmmm... I love your flower "bib" necklace thing from your previous post. I also love the pillow on your daughters bed. Your pictures are so inspiring.

Annie @ The House That Jade Built said...

Oh I hope I! I adore all the winning loot today!

I'm having a stink day too - they are cutting a lot of teachers positions in our town - so far it doesn't impact my kids, but my friend lost her preschool job. It stinks that IL can't manage the budget and it impacts our babies! There is my rant for the day!

michelle from Six in the City said...

What an amazing giveaway!
Would LOVE to win that!

2Belles2Beaux4me said...

I'm always in the mood for pretty. How bout you give away a trip to France with you, how beautiful that would be, hmmmm??

Becky said...

Love the lamp shades. I love your home. Pretty makes me smile.

Valerie said...

Oh, how I need something pretty today. Life has thrown us a whole baseball field full of curveballs this past month, and I'm about done in. Pretty would be nice. :)

Julie Harward said...

I love your pretty things but they really want to come to my house and live...really! Come say hi :D

Laura Short said...

I need pretty. My House needs pretty. My Step-Daughter and her Fiance are *finally* moving out. In 9 days...on the day my Husband returns from his second relief trip to Haiti. And I get my house back. And my life back. At least for a little while...

Yep. I need pretty. And some chocolate ;)

Heart your blog. And your pretty. Thank you!

Red Door Home said...

The shades are so pretty. Would love to add them to my house and pretty up my chandelier.

Brittany said...

Kristina said...

I definitely need a bit of pretty today...well, I know I need something. Something pretty would help :P

Susie from Bienvenue said...

Hope all is well with the kidos. It's hard being a Mom. Yesterday my daughter informed me that on her 18 birthday she is getting her lip pierced. What!! Her birthday is in Sept....Lord I hope she changes her mind. Ugh!
Enjoy yours being young~ ((hugs))

Simply Me Art said...

Change is Never Easy Dammit! Everything looks Beautiful,I'm Happy for Lola speaking her mind about the color of her room too. Emily would have done the very same thing. Chin up Shoulders back and Boobs out, thats what my mom would say if I started to mope around. xo Jamie

Tami C. said...

Oh, please pick me! We are getting ready to put our house on the market in order to let the military move us again. In all the chaos something pretty would make my heart happy.
Thanks for a chance to win.

Teresa said...

Kasey!
I'm so sad you have a heavy heart!
In so many respects...this is why I am thankful that I have never had children.
I just don't think I was meant to little creatures...extentions of me...so immensley only to see the world crush their sweet spirits. I do hope the hurt heals without any damage done to the sweet sweet souls of your little ones..and to their sweet mommy.
Thinking of you!
And about that giveaway...
well it's all lovely...
and I think I like the thoughts of that lip balm bestest of all...but you my dear could send me just one little bloom out of your garden and I'd be happy as a lark!
Just knowing it came from your magical world...that is so mesmerizing...would be all I would need to send a beam into my heart!
What a sweet sweet world you tend to Kasey.
And I do think you need that yummy lip balm in your bag you carry to FRANCE!!!
I do bet you will carry the cutest bag ever on that trip!
Hope we get to see it! ;o)
xxooxxooooxxxoooxxx
sending you extra kisses and hugs today...I think you need them.

dedeetsyshop said...

Teresa said...

Woops...I meant to say...LOVE...little creatures!
I get carried away and type too fast! ;o)

TDT Designs said...

I just want you to know that I love your blog Kasey. I'm fairly new to blogging but have followed you before I began my blog.
Whatever is on your mind I hope it ends well. You always have your readers here to help if they can.

Take care,

Trina said...

Ok seriously! Love the giveaway but really my heart always hurts for my kiddos way more than I ever thought. And I remember being pregnant with my first and super distressed that she would be teased or worse. Ahh, all these mom moments. Good luck!!

RACHELLE said...

I hope everything is ok...thinking about you and hoping so.
Those lamp shades are a.m.a.z.i.n.g. !!! As are all the other goodies you picked :)
I don't boho magazine - sounds pretty sweet.
Have a good day dear.

gIoSmAmA said...

This entire post was pretty. My heart is going flitter flatter with it all. Such a great day full of pretty pictures. Those shades are rocking. I love them. I've never seen that balm at Anthro but I will be going to look for it. It looks AMAZING and "pretty." Your house is beyond pretty and those kids of yours are super pretty.
Sorry you're not having the best of days. I hope you get through it soon.
Have a pretty day!!

Anna said...

so beautiful. you are SO generous to share with us.:)

Brittany said...

I love these lamp shades!! Thanks for sharing. I'm linking this post to my blog.

CRAIG and DIANE said...

Everyone could use a little pretty in their lives. Love your blog!

annebell said...

gray would have been pretty, but the cream is just as pretty.

Love the shades!

Katy Noelle said...

I had replies swirling in my head even before I saw that generous and gorgeous giveaway. Three boys I have. Life happens and, mostly, it's a happy ol' life but, sometimes, I wish I could throw myself in front of the train of change and take all the knocks for them.

I saw the post where those two fellas came and ate the girls lemon squares and played on their tea party table and set up a star wars scene. I laughed and laughed - my boys love my pretty things too but always think that it would be just a bit better if I added legos to the centrepiece!

I saw the shade being made but didn't realize how stunning and PRETTY they'd be - you have a wonderfully put together home. It makes me happy to see it. Thanks for sharing!

Love, Kate

Lorie said...

Those take my breathe away! I am going to post a link to them on my blog!

Katy Noelle said...

By the way, I love your music mix and my fingers did the walking right on over to itunes and I made what i call, "Cheery Mix from Lola B's". It's super!

Katy~The Country Blossom said...

I would love a chance to win!!! WOW...your daughter's room is GORGEOUS!!!!! Doesn't she have any "stuff"? Where do you put all her *things*??? It is a beautiful room! :)

thecountryblossom AT hotmail DOT com

Lorie said...

Katy's post made me giggle because the first thing I did when I left your blog was email a link to my husband, who loves girls with guitar music, and tell him to check out some of these ladies. We love A Fine Frenzy, so I am sure he will love Annie LIttle and Dawn Landes!

aahadley said...

This post reminded me of this song...
I feel pretty,
Oh, so pretty,
I feel pretty and witty and bright!
With 3 boys, hubby and even a boy dog, I could use some pretty!
~anita

Megan said...

Oh I could definitely use some pretty on this oh so long and dreary day!!

Lorie said...

Oh, and just to leave a third comment! I RTed your tweet about the giveaway...although I really really just want to keep it to myself so that I have a better chance of winning!

Beth said...

Oooh...I love it all!

Martha said...

Holy COW!!! a give-a-way my dear...my heart is pitter pattering for that lamp shade because you see I have been looking for the perfect lamp for Madison so if i don't win...maybe I can get in touch with your seamstress...because there is NO way I can do that!

Pretty things sure do help a hard week...there is no denying that, right? Love everything as usual:)

Preppy Mama said...

Oh Lord I need me some pretty today! I had a conference with my 4 year old's preschool director today...I know what could be so bad in preschool??? Oh Lord give me strength!! Did I mention I love Lola's bed? I wish mine looked so pretty!

Lindsey said...

I am in need of pretty today. Thanks for the beautiful post. Those shades are pretty, pretty! I like Lola's room, so calm and just pretty. Thanks. :)

Julie Johnson said...

I need some pretty today.....house is in chambles as I clean and reorganize and paint. A touch of whimsy and pretty would be wonderful. I did make a trip to Target today...and bought the pretty wrap dress in chambray. Am wearing it now with my tall boots and mustard tights and a sweater...and I finally feel pretty after a loonnnngg day. Do I really need to do dishes, laundry and clean now? :)

jredmon said...

I read your blog every day. I love to take a few minutes out of my day to see what you are wearing and what latest decorating idea you have put to use in your house. Oh and those kids of yours are pretty adorable too! I hope you pick me - but if you don't, I'll still read every day! ;)

jredmon said...

Also - I think a lot of people are going to be walking around in that cute dress and boots this spring!

Jessica Haley said...

Maybe it's just the multimillion dollar co. that's threatening a lawsuit {oops, did I let that slip} but I've been in melancholoy spirits myself. Something pretty might help. Well, so would a trip to Mexico and a few margaritas, but I'll aim small. I think I need some retail therapy....

Gail said...

We're in the same boat today, unfortunately. Maybe if we take turns rowing we can make it? Hope things get better for you too, and thanks for the bits of pretty.

Seasoned with Words said...

I'm in major need of pretty things! Help!

Bonnie said...

I like pretty! When I have kids I plan to have as much white lovelies just like you. Lola's room is dreamy and those really are some mighty pretty lampshades.

Thanks so much for sharing the pretty today. You rock!

*hugs*

Bonnie said...

PS I tweeted a purrty tweet just for you! :)

Sarah said...

Sorry to hear there is so much happening right now, but I hope things smooth out for you.
I love the chandelier shades! I would love a big one as I have that matching lamp in my room so it would be fabulous!!!
Sigh!!!
You are almost ready for Paris in springtime...I hope you are totally getting mentally prepared for the loveliness of it all!

Lesley said...

My kids have stomach bugs. I could really use something pretty! Thank you for the giveaway.

malhgold said...

I'm having a bit of an issue with my 14 year old daughter today, so I can completely relate. Keep your chin up!! BTW....I went and bought that Target dress you blogged about, but I got mine in the blue/white pencil stripe.

Carmen said...

Wow! What a fabulous giveaway. I was going to comment about the shades anyway before I even realized that you were doing a giveaway. I am so delighted. I *need* to win! :) Anyway, I adore the shades. Adore them. I also like the color you have in your dining room. I love Lola's room just like Fin does. I'd want to hang out in there as well.

P.S. I wish *I* had a painter guy because I've been painting my living room for the past 2 days and I am still NOT done.

mimi charmante said...

92 comments already? seriously? good grief, don't these people have something better to do than follow your prettiness???
Please, toss my name in. I will tweet it - heck, I will even blog it, although that will just reduce my chances of winning... drat again...
(I do love the shades - they are sweet~
xx

Deb said...

Boy I sure could use some pretty today, it's been a down week for me. The boys look so cute on the feminine bed! Thanks for the chance to win.

Victoria said...

I could use some "pretty" today. It has been raining ALL day and it's so dreary and gray. Add to that my house is a total wreck from packing and blah.

Blondie said...

Lovely photos honey. I hope you have a fantastic weekend! Kori xoxo

Morning T said...

I'm always with you Kasey, up to the last word I'm always there reading. I'm sorry about whatever your yucky news is about one of your kiddos...ugh~ don't mess with our kids people!! I can't stand knowing that your heart hurts about it.

I want and NEED those amazing lampshades and I'm afraid that if I don't win I'm going to have to try to make one on my own and that won't be a pretty sight!
I'll blog about this tonite.:)
Hugs~

Heather K. said...

I needed a little pretty today!

Jessica said...

I definitely could use something pretty. Thanks for the opportunity.

ME said...

Lord knows I could use a big heap of pretty! As I type, my two year-old son is re-arranging furniture in his never-dying effort to climb to the ceiling, my husband just tracked in enough dirt to fill a swimming pool and my 3 month-old daughter is crying for the boob. I'm just dreaming of ditching these sweatpants for a dab of lip gloss, a dinner party and adult conversation!

Hayley said...

My first comment on a blog ever!! I enjoy your blog. Here's to pretty things and pretty spring days ahead!

Beauty Vibes said...

Everyone could use something pretty :) Today I've been very unlucky though, so it would certainly cheer me up >.>

Two and a half weeks away from baby boy #3 and I am in need of some serious pretty! Thanks for the chance to win, and if I don't, I enjoyed the little pretty window shopping today!

Kathy's Red Door Welcome said...

I work in customer service for Pottery Barn and today was one of those days where people yelled at me all day long. I need pretty in the worst way. I do understand why people have a need to yell when their pretty things don't arrive on time, they just don't understand that yelling at me just isn't pretty! Looking at your Lola's pretty cream room is food for the soul.

Jess said...

pretty pretty please pick me!!!

lilDdownunder said...

I need some pretty today. I got engaged a few weeks ago and then that night my fiance went back to Australia, where I thought I'd be following him back shortly. The day I was supposed to leave, I realized that the visa I had planned to go over on wasn't correct and the only one I can apply for can take up to 6 months to get granted. I am trying to think on the positive side of things, but being engaged and not getting a chance to celebrate it and not being sure when I will see my fiance again has really gotten me down. Thanks for the opportunity to win. Anthropologie is such a great store.

I'm doing two giveaways on my blog right now, too, if anyone is interested (hope it's ok to add this here). littleddownunder.blogspot.com

When one of my kids was recently going through a difficult time and my heart was breaking for her, someone told me, "you're only as happy as your saddest child." So true! I hope your situation improves soon. I love your beautiful blog!

Oh my gosh, I would be so excited to win this. First off, I adore all things boho. Secondly, those plates are gorgeous and that lamp shade is so pretty!! I just moved into a new place so the plates and shade would help liven things up around here. I've heard about Tokyo Milk soap and scents and lip balm, but I've yet to try it. Would love to. My birthday is March 18th, so hopefully it'll give me a little b-day luck ;) Thank you!!

Ali said...

Hi Kasey, sorry that your heart is breaking for one of your kiddos. My heart is always breaking every time one of my kiddos is hurt, scared, confused....that's what we do as mommy's. Hope all is well. Really adore your Lola's room, what a pretty shade of cream. I could really use something pretty about now. I am so homesick. Okinawa is beautiful, but there's no place like home. I feel like I've had a really nice vacation but it's time to go home, only we have a lot longer to go on this vacation! Have a lovely day!

Gail said...

Whew, when I was reading the beginning of your post I thought "this is what I've been saying in my head all week" about a heart breaking episode with my oldest son this week. I wanted to shout out "But, it's just not fair!", but I couldn't. So, I totally get how you're feeling!

I would love if you would enter me into the giveaway because I love the shades and + I've been looking for someone to make shades for me for my barn sales!

Thank you!

Preppy Mama said...

Love the shades!!! how did you get the cream to go cream and not look like a pinky shade?? Have never been able to do that!

vintagebejoyful said...

I always say this simple little sentence it says a lot.....

when my kids are ok, I'm ok, when they're not, I'm not. simple as that.

just remember, it's ok until it isn't. you'll know.
