A litttle 511 Wri-Atus

If you follow me on you know that I have had some major home-related issues this past week.
If you don’t, here is our story.
I am forced to take a bit of a wri-atus, but I assure you that some new things are happening in the 511 world. Like a completely changed master bedroom. After all that.
But here’s a little sneak peak…


Magic with Lindsay Docherty Photography (Another Sneak Peak)

Another little taste of my magical experience with Lindsay Docherty.
Her ability to get down on my daughter’s level, both literally and figuratively, amazed me. She put my daughter at great ease, and she was instantly comfortable with Lindsay in our home and a camera in her space.
We decided to hang three very special, enchanting photos of my daughter in her room, for they are more than just pictures, they are pieces of art.

Lindsay captured more than just my daughter’s face and beauty; she captured her spirit. She is wild and she is brimming with life, and the photos reflect that.

I can’t wait to show you the rest!

The Perfect Coffee Table Accessory

I just got the most wonderful surprise package in the mail; You already know that I adore Jordan Reid of Ramshackle Glam. Over the years I’ve read her stories, I’ve used her recipes, I’ve danced along to her songs…it’s been a lovely journey.

And now she’s written a book. Which means I have the most perfectly wonderful coffee table accessory imaginable.

In it are tips, anecdotes, recipes; it is her blog in a way that I can hold, tangibly in my hands. I love it so much already. And it is pretty. which means it makes my coffee table look pretty.
