It’s finally cold here in Charlotte, and we’re watching for a snowflake (or two). We’re spending the weekend cleaning out the garage and the upstairs playroom for some projects I’ll be sharing with you next week. Hope your weekend is just as exciting :)
I’ve always loved the look of vintage posters. They are a great way to add a little fun to any room. And, now they’re free! Free Vintage Posters is a new web site that houses a huge library of vintage posters in all categories. You can download any poster in a hi-res file and print them yourself (or take them to somewhere like Staples for a larger size).
If you currently have a “stick in a pot”, Keely offers step-by-step advice on how to revive your orchid.
Find the ugliest fabric around, and you could win your choice of a custom window treatment (in a really pretty fabric!) from Windows by Melissa. Check out the details of her first Ugly Fabric Challenge here. (We have a cat, but this chair completely freaks me out. . . )

I’m thinking of braving IKEA on a weekend for this chair. Do I dare? I must really like it. . .
