One Kings Lane

Vintage Victuals mentioned the site One Kings Lane and I love it. It is like RueLaLa but for housewares. Here are some of the items for sale today.

Isn't this plate cool? It is only $19 for the small and $38 for the large.

I love Serena and Lily bedding.

These place mats would be so fun in my new house. hmmm.... I wonder if the hubs will go for pomegranate pink walls in the Kitchen??

And what house wouldn't be made even better with this lantern. I love it!!

If you would like a referral to the site or Ruelala (Paige Premiun Jeans are on sale today), just leave a comment or email me at

At home Coke Machine??!!??

Has anyone tried the at home coke machine (ok so it the company is SodaClub, but a Georgia girl doesn't call it 'Soda' of course!!)? I think that this is a really cool idea. Williams-Sonoma carries it as well. I really want to find someone that has used this. There are great reviews on W-S's website.

Blog Makeover - Do we like?

The trees are starting to bloom and it is almost Spring - only 3 more days! I felt that it was time for a little blog makeover. I am trying the 3 column format and like it so far.

I love giveaways!!

I just got package from Ellen, that I won over on her blog Ellen and Don. I love it!! So much fun to get someone else's favorites and try something new. I think I have a new addiction with these Chex Mix bars. And the Burt's Bees lip balm is my new favorite. Mr. P. will be so happy that I don't steal his crappy Chapstick anymore.

Thanks Ellen!!!

I will be hosing a giveaway in the next few days. Look out for details.

So I know that I was tagged and I need to do a few posts with pictures, a song lists, my current purse. Sorry for the delay. I went skiing with my family last week and ended up getting the flu. I am just now recovering and catching back up. Steamboat was a blast and I only lost one ski day from being sick.

I also need to blog about my wedding. Monday was our 6 month anniversary and that is a good enough reason to finally post some pictures.

So I'll leave you with a few of the pictures that I do have online from our wedding for now.

Selling the House....

So the house is officially on the market, thanks to Clemsongirl. (I know that she is going to hate me by the end of the process - lets just say that I am a very involved seller :) ) The pictures are fabulous, we just need the buyer.

Keep your fingers crossed, wish us luck, say a prayer, do a jig, cast a spell, visit the witch doctor, etc. something to send us good house selling juju our way!

Here's a little photo tour of our house.

Need help!

Mr P and I spent this past weekend looking at houses and neighborhoods in Dallas, TX. We found one we love and a builder that is fabulous - Lantana. We went from only looking and taking a wait see approach since we have to sell our house here, to putting a contingent contract down on a lot to build. Craziness!!! This move is getting more and more real by the day.

The fabulous Clemsongirl is listing our house. She blogged about our house(first house) yesterday. We are super excited to be working with her. I'll post more pictures of the house once we get the pro ones in the listing. Wish us luck that she sells it really fast.

So I need a bit of help from everyone. Can anyone recommend some good home decorating blogs? I need inspiration on colors and kitchens. I hope I am not putting the cart before the horse, but I need to be ready just in case!
