{Random Happy Things}

Well hello there!
Happy almost hump day!
Where is Friday....that's all i'm asking!!! :) :) :)

Seaside...yes that's were i'd rather be:) :)

It's been a week and it's only Tuesday!

ps....that seaside sign is one i've made recently! What do you think?! I happen to think it's pretty cute! Sort of my take on all those vintage inspired signs out there!

Alright...I told you this was going to be random!

A little while ago I drug my best friend over to a freshly plowed corn field to watch the sunset! We had a blast!

I absolutely love to do random things like that! Good thing the farmer didn't get mad at us and my friend was willing! I think it's fun and it makes you stop and really appreciate the simple moments in life!

I also thought it would be fun if she walked out into the field and danced ...while I tried to take pictures that didn't turn out!
I completely adore her ....she fun...funny and a great friend! Plus look what she's willing to do to make me smile! :) :)

Little did I know she'd expect the same from me....
You can tell...I am not nearly as comfortable dancing in the middle of a plowed corn field!
It was a much better idea when it was her doing the dancing! :)

Owell....it sure made us laugh! and sometimes that's all you need!

On another random note.....
One of my friends at work also makes jewelry!
Black Rock Design....check it out!!!

She makes absolutely gorgeous jewelry but was lacking in her display....let's just say....she didn't have a display!
She asked for a little help and I was delighted!

I gave her a little homework assignment...
asked her to come up with 20 words that would really describe what she was after....and had her pick a couple images that really spoke to her!

From there.....she let me design her whole display!! I was in pure heaven!
I absolutely love to design things! I think it turned out amazing.....

I came up with the ideas and she did the hard work of painting frames....coloring canvas.....and cutting fabric~~
I think it really shows off her amazing jewelry!

Now if someone would just pay me to do this for a living....i'd be in bliss!!!! :) :) :)

And lastly....
see I told you it would be random!

I started my autumn decorating tonight...

ps...notice the 2 wine glasses in the background!!?!? I couldn't decide between red and white wine tonight! So I had a little of both! :) :)

Anywho...I built another one of those cute little crates tonight and painted it creamy white and then scuffed it all up!

I put a glass candle holder in it and surrounded it with autumn pumpkins and what not....
I hate to admit it....but I must....I love autumn!!! I love everything about it! and I love getting inspired to re-decorate my home to reflect the season. I just don't look forward to what comes after autumn.

Hope you have a super happy rest of your week! Maybe it will fly by!

  1. Hi Heather-

    You are too cute with your red and white wine. I am so happy it is fall and love your table decoration. The candles add the perfect glow. I haven't done any fall decorating yet, but am itching to start. I hope Friday comes soon.
    My best- Diane

  2. Hi, I just stumbled upon your blog... Awesome decorations! Always nice to seasonally switch things up.

  3. You are too funny! I love your randomness! There is nothing better than spending time with a great friend and laughing so hard your belly hurts!!

    Your sign is adorable and I love your crates! I love fall, it is my favorite and I can't wait for crisp cool air, fires in the fireplace and just feeling cozy all over!!

    I hope your week goes quick!

  4. LOVE the autumn display - how on earth do you make these darling rustic crates?? can you please do a demonstration, or better yet, sell them in your etsy store? if you're already selling them, please send me a link!

    P.S. had a tooth pulled and guess what the dentist ordered - a nice glass of wine after my tough day!!

  5. Heather, you are just adorable! You make me laugh! Love the pics of you and your bestie dancing in that field. lol! And I think random posts are fun! You just never know what you're going to read next! :)

    Wine? It's always red here because we make our own (Fat Cat*Happy Dog). Kind of like a sangria, and yummy!

    Oh, cute candle box, by the way!

  6. Love the sign!! You should sell those. And the sailboats are really lovely too. They look like little works of art.

  7. Random thoughts....they're the BEST. That's the way my mind works. It's difficult to keep focused on one thought when I am in creative mode. I guess that's normal for us creative people...
    Love your sign...and the crate. Such fun ideas.

    ps Had more complements on the earrings I purchased from you. I LOVE them!

  8. You tickle my funny bone! Made me smile all the way through. How nice to be the one with the ideas, & have others do the work... I think you're onto something there :-)

  9. I believe that one day you WILL get paid for what you love to do!! You are SOOOOO talented!!! Seriously. And you crack me up....I could so see me dancing in the farmer's field...yeah...I do believe I've done it before...and it was raining!! No pics though...ha!! You always make me smile.
    Thank you for that!!

  10. I didn't finish my comment so I am commenting again!!! I ADORE Fall and everything about it!!! Your decorations are STUNNING!!! Love them...and I love your decorating style!! And your living room!! Great Job!!! You ROCK!

  11. All pizza places of USA http://pizza-us.com/nevada/Las%20Vegas/Brooklyn%20Boys/89103/

    Find your best pizza.

  12. YOU are adorable! It is so nice that you have a friend to do these whimsical things with.. I think them, but alas never actually get to play out the day dreams.. Perhaps we let the dull things in life get in the way... So Bravo to you and your randomness!!!!

  13. Just for the record. I LOVE your style... love love love!!

    The jewelery display is amazing! Way to go!

  14. If I lived near you I promise I would go to the field and dance and drink wine with you!

    Love your attitude.


  15. I love your fall decorations! By the time fall rolls around every year I am always so excited for it. The cooler air, the changing leaves & the holidays right around the corner!

    You are your friend are just too darn cute! I have felt a little out of touch with my girlfriends as of late - but I have plans to rectify that this weekend : )

  16. Heather - Thanks for the advice on the book. I just ordered "Shrink Yourself." I can't wait to read it. I agree that our situations seem so similar.

    I am reading WF&G for the second time - there was a lot that was super deep/confusing for me the first time through and I was hoping it would make more sense the second time. Nope. I think that most of it is too deep and I am just not able to wrap myself around it. I do love a lot of the quotes that she makes reference to and she makes some points that really hit home for me - but they are not new to me.

    Anyway - I am excited to get my new book! Keep me posted as to what you are thinking of it.

  17. The beach sign is fabulous..., the boat, oh my..., and it's a very nice shot too that I might have to use as a Header! Or am I taking too much from your blog as is, hmmmmm.

    Happy weekend and Labor Day!!

  18. Heather what a lovely post-your autumn decorating is lovely-but I refuse to believe summer is leaving us.

  19. Lookie...It's FRIDAY...your fave! Fun post.

    Talented, creative,spirited girl you are!

  20. You're making me want to go to the beach, collect some beachy things and get crafty:)
    Oh and it IS friday, so have a great weekend!

  21. I love your fall decorations - so homey and pretty. I would also love to come and be random with you in an open field and watch the sunset. How fun!

    BTW, I do the white and red wine a lot too, sometimes a girl shouldn't have to decide!

  22. I stumbled upon your blog and just love all of your crafty, beachy inspirations! I live just a hop, skip, and jump away from Lake Michigan and LOVE the beach! A great friend, a great glass of wine & a sunset = a wonderful time!
