I've been spending too much time on design blogs...

And now I'm in one of those phases where I can't fall asleep at night because I can't stop dreaming about all of the projects I'm going to get done. Notice I said "dreaming". I'm making NO such promises to start or finish ANY of these projects.

But CAN YOU IMAGINE having a playhouse like that in your backyard? Ross, need a new hobby? I find handy-men very attractive.

And the upper left--- did you see those on The Little Green Notebook? They're rain gutter book shelves. So it costs, like nothing--- for wall-spanning book shelves. Just a bit more elbow grease than I might be able to muster. She linked this tutorial on her blog.

The bottom left picture--- I'm into those framed boards... whatever you call them. Where you can stick pictures and notes with pushpins? A couple of frames, spray paint, cute fabric, batting, trim, fabric glue, viola! Lost the link--- but same lovely blog. It seemed easy at the time, but I'm already overwhelmed just thinking of what it probably took... oh to be a bit more crafty.

And lastly, the cute poster. All we have to do for that one is hit purchase. And then hang in Sophia's room.

What do you want to guess is the MOST likely to reappear on my blog in MY house?

And while I'm in the mood for link-sharing... Allie, did you see I finally did my horizontal tabs on my photo blog??? Thank you for sharing your tutorial!

If you love your husband don't put too much pressure on him with that playhouse. Was that built from scratch? Very cool, but seeing how it took me an entire day to build a sandbox (not that it would take Ross that long) don't embark on that project unless you plan to be a single mom for several weeks.

I've really been into that blog (and other design blogs) lately myself! I totally went to HomeGoods today looking for a mirror she featured from there! Didn't find it...such a bummer! That woman is amazing. I have not been able to figure out HOW she has time to do all of these projects and shopping outings with three kids, one of them a newborn!?

Oh I LOVE these. I've heard about the rain gutter thing for years but never thought of spanning a whole wall. I love children's books and what a great way to use them as art. I love all these. I have so many decorating blogs I look at but haven't seen these. Love it. Thanks for sharing. I told my husband also that I find it very attractive when he's doing projects around the house :)
