A Joyfolie Discount for You and a Happy Halloween from Lillie, Lola and Evie

As many of your know,  I love the beautiful shoes, clothing and accessories by Joyfolie.  When I first got to know Jessica we were both selling our items on Etsy. Over the past few years Joyfolie has grown and grown and grown... Their shoes are now manufactured and have been sold at places like Anthropologie and on Piperlime and have been featured everywhere from the red carpet to! If you have never been to the Joyfolie website let me just tell you, you are in for a visual treat! 
Well, guess what? Today Jessica is offering all of our 
Dear Lillie readers a 25% discount on all items that are NOT labeled "New"! Just in time for Christmas shopping. 

I love the Lenah Dress. In fact, I just ordered it last week and am hoping to have the girls wear it in our Christmas card photo this year.

Here are some of my other favorite items:

 the Hazel

I got the Lavalia in Gray  last year for Lillie and Lola and it is one of my favorite pieces. It goes with everything and is so darling!

I think my pink little princess, Lola would LOVE this outfit!

To get this discount just use the code DEARL25! 
Please keep in mind it will not work on items marked new but will work on everything else, including sale items!

I hope you all have a lovely Halloween! I am hoping to get some pictures of the girls tonight in their costumes but who knows how that will go - haha! This is what happened when I got out my real camera to try to get a shot of them in their matching pajamas from Mimi:

Hopefully I'll have better luck tonight when they are in their costumes but I am not going to hold my breath. =)

Happy Halloween!

A Little Fall in the Study and our Newest Joss and Main Curator's Collection

Today I thought I would share with your the fall decorations in our study but before I get to that I wanted to let you all know about our event launching tonight at 9PM EST.

We are so excited to have partnered with Joss and Main again, and are hosting our fourth curator's collection event tonight. It is so much fun working with them. If you don't already know about Joss and Main I highly recommend heading on over there and signing up! They offer all sorts of designer brands that go on sale at 20-50% off retail, but the deals are only available to members! I have bought some of my favorite pieces from them over the last year and a half: some smaller items like baskets, pillows, a lamp, and larger pieces like a dresser, and most recently our large clock and dining room chairs. (I don't know for certain yet if they were able to but they were going to try to have all of those items in the event tonight!)

If you’re not signed up yet to get the emails announcing all the sales, here is a personal invitation from me* . There is a waitlist for joining Joss & Main, but by joining through this invitation link, you can bypass the waitlist and ensure that you are first in line when our event launches later today!  It is free, you sign up with your email, and then you’ll have access to all of the designer decor that goes on sale each day.  *Note, I do receive a small referral fee if you sign up and purchase something, (this is true for you too, if you refer members you will also receive a credit for their first purchase).  

And here is our study decorated for fall. I actually did this at least a month or so ago but didn't get around to photographing it until Friday. I figured I'd better get it photographed soon, though, seeing how in a few more weeks I will be getting out the Christmas decorations - ahhh! As I mentioned the first time I showed this room, we haven't done all that much in this room seeing how it's the one space where we are considering keeping the dark trim. I did paint the walls a creamy color called Soft Chamois from Benjamin Moore (they were a light pinky peach color when we moved in) and I know I want to have something built above the mantle to cover the bookshelves but other than that I am not sure if we will do much else. All the pieces in here (including the fall decorations) we've had for 5-10 years except the lamps which are from HomeGoods and the draperies (the Ritva ones from IKEA) and some of the pillows. I will try to add a source section when I get it chance but I am typing this post as fast as I can. I don't normally work on my computer during the day when the girls are awake but I was so behind I had to try to type this post up and they are patiently waiting on me to bake some muffins. =)

You can find our harvest pillows which are on sale for just $9.95 here and our Thanksgiving chalkboard prints here.

And don't forget our Joss and Main that goes live in just an hour! (Tuesday, 9PM EST)

Have a blessed week!

Beneath My Heart's Aged Zinc Table Top

It's been a little bit crazy around here so I haven't finished going through the photos for the post I had planned for tonight but I should be able to get it finished up for tomorrow. However, check out this gorgeous new table top that Traci, from Beneath My Heart made with her husband! I am dying to try this. I love the way it turned out and love the way it goes with her gorgeous new light fixture.  And of course I love how our chalkboard print looks in this space.

She is so sweet and incredibly talented. You should head on over and see all the transformations in her home.  Here's a little peek:

Be sure to head on over and take the full tour!

 She and her husband have some amazing before and after's here in this section of her blog too.

I hope you all have a fabulous Monday. I'll be back tomorrow.

Progress in our Powder Room (Before and Almost After)

I can't tell you how excited I am to have this room finished! Technically it's not quite finished. I still need to add some artwork to the walls but other than that it's pretty much done! We replaced the toilet shortly after moving in and I took down the chair rail and then I kind of got stuck for a while trying to make a decision. I didn't want to chose a new countertop or paint the vanity until I picked out a wallpaper and I couldn't for the life of me find what I had pictured in my head at an affordable price.

I eventually got sick of waiting on myself to make a decision on wallpaper and went ahead and ordered the countertop/sink and faucet last month from Lowe's because I figured it would be safe and go with most anything I ended up picking out for wallpaper. I wanted a marble countertop but after the initial quote on that ended up choosing a product called Evercor which ended up close to half the cost of the marble quote. We chose it in the color Aspen. It came with a free sink and I chose the rectangular undermounted style. That was one thing I didn't have any trouble deciding on. I knew I wanted a square or rectangular sink. I love the way it looks. And then I chose the most inexpensive oil rubbed bronze faucet in 8" widespread style that Lowe's carried. 

Then it was back to the wallpaper. I wanted something fun but not too crazy. Something with an interesting pattern (like in Lillie and Lola's room) but in relatively neutral colors. Well, I spent close to four months looking and didn't find anything that had that feel I was imagining. Or I should say not anything that was reasonably priced. I ended up choosing the gray trellis pattern by York (I ordered it from American Blinds and Wallpaper because that was the cheapest place I found it).  I wasn't all that thrilled about it when I ordered it but figured at least it would be safe and I was just so sick of staring at the bathroom being stuck looking like it was in mid-renovation so I pulled the trigger. This ended up being the opposite of my stair runner situation (where I loved the pattern until I actually put it on my stairs). Once this went up I ended up being really happy with it. It feels so much more clean and fresh in here! It was nearly impossible to photograph because there is no natural light in this powder room so I don't think it really portrays well here on the computer. It felt really dark and kind of dirty in here before and now I am so much happier with how it looks! So, in the end I m actually really excited about it.

Once I chose the paper I painted the vanity. I used Shenandoah Taupe because I still had plenty of it left over from last year and then added new hardware from Home Depot. I had planned on hunting for something unique but got impatient once the rest of the bathroom came together and just ended up running to Lowe's and Home Depot and those were the ones I liked best. 

I just removed the sconces and spray painted them oil rubbed bronze for now. I would like to replace them with something a little more interesting someday but they are fine at this point.

Here you can see side by side the before and what it looks like now (I still need to add artwork but haven't decided what I'm going to put up yet):

This is a cellphone shot so it's really grainy and off color but we had some of the leftover beadboard wallpaper from the dining room and entryway installed on the ceiling in here. It's a fun little detail that's a bit unexpected.

And here's what it looks like with the lights on:


Trim Color - Simply White in Semi-gloss Finish
Wallpaper - Graphic Trellis Wallpaper (can be found here)
Beadboard Wallpaper - Allen and Roth from Lowe's
Vanity Color - Shenandoah Taupe (think it was in a matte finish because that was what I had on hand, if I were purchasing it new would have gone with semi-gloss for this)
Hardware for Vanity - Home Depot
Vanity top and sink - Evercor in Aspen from Lowe's
Faucet - American Standard from Lowe's
Mirror - HomeGoods
Soap, Lotion, Towel and Jar - HomeGoods
Sconces - spray painted with oil rubbed bronze
Pitcher - Target
Vase - IKEA
I hope you all are having a wonderful week!
