Ethel’s First Egg!

You can’t believe how overjoyed and excited we were to learn that the FIRST of our brood has laid an egg. We were beginning to wonder if we’ve been doing something wrong… ever since we built the coop and picked up our ladies from an out-of-town farmer, we’ve excitedly checked the nesting box morning and night.

Well two months later (almost to the day) Ethel has made us proud with her very first egg!

But you might notice that something isn’t right… no, I think Ethel has learned her laying lesson: do not attempt to nest while dangling from the roosting pole (several feet from the ground).

Ethel examines just to make sure. Good thing she doesn’t have any experience in this yet, maybe she doesn’t know that she broke it.

*Giveaway* from Lumnique Candles

Mmmmm there’s nothing like the cozy and delicious scent of candles burning on the fireplace mantel, in the center of the coffee table or perched on a nightstand in the bedroom. In fact, I’d say candles are probably my home must-have for dinner parties & guests, after a long day or just when the air needs something *sweet & fresh*.

Lumnique contacted me about doing a little giveaway for two of their customizable high-end versions and I was thrilled to pass the deal along to a lucky winner.

Here’s a bit about the company: “Priced at $30, all candles are made to order and utilize an 8 oz. clean-burning soy wax blend, eco-friendly color dyes, and natural essential oils that retain their scent while the candle is lit. Lumnique offers more than 14 colors and a variety of fragrances in three categories: citrus/fruit, floral/aromatherapy, and nature/spice/cuisine.”

Master Bedroom: the Inspiration Board

Hope you had a lovely weekend! I’m back to working on the master bedroom… and here’s a look at my ideas for the new space. Patterns and fabrics have yet to be decided but I’d love to mix that bohemian/eclectic feel with softer/traditional elements (like batik fabric for an occasional chair with sheer white panels for the windows, a bright sunburst mirror with a conventional everyday dresser).

My colors are swirling around in the navy, tan and brown ranges but I know a “pop” of something would be ideal! Should it be brick red? A muted yellow? Maybe a sea glass green? Oh decisions decisions…
