thank-you-by-cocorrina

I have a little surprise for you, that came as surprise to me, too.

The other day I received an e-mail from Dot & Bo (one of my fave places to shop online for well priced, modern design) informing that I recieved a Design District Award for The Cool Mama Award.  I blushed at their kind words and found a little pep in my blogging step.  And, then I got super excited because they informed me that I could giveaway a $500 credit to shop at Dot &Bo to one of my readers!

So lovelies, I’m saying thank you to Dot & Bo, and also to you, because you make this blog.  The conversation, exchange of ideas, inspiration, and exchanged encouragement is what it’s all about!

house-crush4_lalalovely

Last week, i included this kitchen in an inspiring rooms post and made mention that it just might show up as a house crush.  And here we are, already, because I can’t get this pretty abode, belonging to Levi, Claudia + Eve and featured on the Beetle Shack,  out of my mind.

Everything about this space catches my eye.  It’s calm and collected.  It’s not fussy and has a touch of fun.  It’s lived in and brings life from the outside in.

hallway-love_lalalovely

hallways.   i love a good hallway, especially lived in ones.  they lead to anywhere and everywhere.

hater-or-creator

just a thought that i was thinking yesterday.  hate sounds like such a strong word to own.  Yes?  Perhaps you don’t hate others, but maybe find yourself hating on their work or even battling thoughts of hating on yourself.  Hate gets you no where.  Creating can open doors to anywhere.  Create your own work to be proud of.  And, best of all, create the life you’ve always dreamed of.

agnes-fashionable-crossbody-bag_lalalovely

the new Susan Ziptop Crossbody by FashionAble.  I’ve been searching for the perfect black crossbody bag and I have found it.  Not only beautiful in product but mission.  LiveFashionable provides opportunities for women in Africa to be ABLE to live better lives.

pressed-flowers_la-la-lovely pressed flowers.  Do you ever press flowers in a book?  I’ve never really done it with intention, but there have been times that I have picked up a flower or some type of foliage while being outside and used it as a bookmark.  In fact, I have an almost 20 year old flower from Africa, still pressed in an old Bible that I had with me on that trip.  I love opening the page that I marked for a reason and having a tangible piece of beauty from another land and another time.

  wildly-co_--lalalovelyblog

Happy friday!  Or, happy freezing friday, to many of you.  How was your week?  I’d like to say mine was productive, or inspiring, or lively, but it wasn’t.  It was the very normal kind, where most of the good stuff lives, if we look for it (I’m learning this art, which doesn’t come natural to me or likely anyone).  We stayed in, and then tried to get out, basketball games, tv watching, field trips to a Wizard of Oz play and the easiest (and cheapest) trip, I’ve ever made to IKEA.   So, I guess I did accomplish something new.

I’m sharing some of my favorites this Friday, both include some kind of WILD.
