Ikat, Be My Guest

Hi there and Happy Monday!  Writing today from one of my favorite places in the world.  My hometown of Fort Smith, AR.  Still cannot believe I get a whole week home.  Happy Camper. 

Today I want to invite Ikat to be my guest.  I about died when I was searching Pinterest for a blue themed party motif and stumbled upon the first shot here.  I have to admit this eye catching print was never at the top of my print list for a party, but she is now.  If you are an Ikat lover like me, how easy would it be to grab a few yards of your favorite Ikat print to make a great tablecloth?  Feeling a little less inclined, try some sweet Ikat napkins to liven up your look.

What do you think?  Would you invite Ikat to the partaaa....J

Double Feature

About once every month, my buddy and I catch up on all the latest movies in theaters we have not had a chance to see.  Sometimes one afternoon movie turns in to two movies and a sweet little Sunday is born.  This past Sunday we caught "Alexander's Horrible and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" and "St. Vincent."  I recommend them both if you are in the mood for some laughs, some tears, and a warm fuzzy feeling.  Happy Thursday...J

Slow Down

Some days you just have to slow down.  Even though I spent a lot of time working this weekend, we found some time to slow things down.  Did not hurt that I spent most of the weekend in these pants with an elastic waistband and this sweater that feels like a bunny.  Happy Tuesday...J

Hostess with the Mostess Monday: Mexican Blankets

Anyone who knows me, knows my mad love for Mexican blankets.  I always keep my eye out for them at antique shops or flea markets.  I have been lucky enough to find a few and receive one as a sweet gift from a BFF after her trip to Mexico.  What started out as a love affair for pretty colors and prints grew to an appreciation for usefulness.  

You see these gals are much more than a pretty face.  Aside from the perfect cover up for a cool night on your porch or trip to the beach, they are perfect for parties.  Need an eye catching table runner, tablecloth, bench cover, or scarf...your Mexican blanket can save the day.  Though they are an obvious choice for your next fiesta, I hope you will think of them next time you are roasting s'mores in the backyard, planning a wedding, or hosting some friends for a brunch.  

Happy Monday...J
