More pretty...

I really am sorry for all the home decor talk lately, but apart from this project that's due at work on Friday, it's all I can think about right now!

Today I just wanted to share a few of the blogs I've started following in my quest to decorate the house.  I think blogs are great for decorating because the blogger is often just a regular person with great DIY tips for those of us who are new to this game.

They're a young, married couple renovating/decorating their first house.  Super fun and great style.  One of my favorite features is actually not strictly design-related.  It's their "Favorite Things" post, where they showcase his and her current obsessions.

They're actually a resale shop, but they've got gorgeous pieces, and they're located in the North Dallas area.  I'm totally lusting after this sideboard, but I don't think I've got anywhere to put it.  Maybe it can find a home with one of y'all?

I happen to have known this blogger since kindergarten. :)  She's brilliant and beautiful, and she and her husband just bought their first house and are having fun decorating, as well. She has great money-saving tips and apparently wonderful taste, because I also own that wrought-iron hanging (yay Hobby Lobby!). :)

Rhoda posts some lovely things and always includes plenty of pictures.  I was so happy when I stumbled upon her blog.  One of my favorite features is her "Thrifty Treasures" linking parties, where everyone posts pictures of their thrifty finds.
Can you believe someone found this couch for $80 on Craigslist?!

I'd be surprised if you're into decorating and haven't heard of The Lettered Cottage (particularly if you're a PW fan like me - they helped redo Ree's friend Hyacinth's living room and are currently working with Ree on the upstairs room for her daughters).  They're a husband and wife design team, and they're fun and creative, and I love their site.  Definitely go check them out.
