How To Host A Rosé + Flower Arranging Party | theglitterguide.com

It’s like the Glitter Guide has a portal to my soul. ARE YOU KIDDING ME WITH THIS??

A press release I’ve been slaving over for a week just got thrown in my face.

Legit thrown haphazardly across an exec’s desk. “Not on target.” 

Just so you know. I’m fine. (On the real, I’m just glad I didn’t start crying. Immediately.)

Yep. This happened.

Harry is here!

I never thought I could love a little thing so much! We picked up Harry on Sunday and have had the best week with him so far. I can’t believe he’s ours! (I know, I am a weirdo.)

I mean…

I took him to my favorite place in Raleigh (Furbish Studio) to meet the ladies and mingle among fine home goods. He took a liking to their Moroccan shag rug and enjoyed the numerous belly rubs. 

Frog dog!

Seriously we can’t even handle the cuteness and just gush all over him all day erryday. Cesar Milan would not be happy with us. But he’s doing a great job learning commands, walking and hasn’t had a SINGLE accident in the house! Proud mom. 

In between staring at Harry, I’ve been dreaming up some more projects for our house after I put things on hold in March. I found this beauty on Craigslist:

I immediately thought that this piece could be 1) amazing storage for our front living room and 2) a permanent bar (priorities.) Thinking about the bar, I was inspired by this:

See that tortoiseshell wallpaper from the always amazing Bailey Quinn McCarthy from Peppermint Bliss? Well, I thought I could take that idea and apply it to this new piece of mine- removing the green felt situation and replacing it with this:

You can find the paper here. After a few coats of some sealant to protect it from moisture (and making sure it will still fold up appropriately) I think we’ll be in business. Another thought I had if the paper doesn’t work is putting a different fabric instead of the green felt. Would love to get a teeny remnant of some of this fabulousness from Lee Jofa:

Stay tuned. I’m picking up the piece on Saturday morning and will post pics once it is in place and the paper is on it!

Perfect.
