Major milestones this past week with our oldest.  First week of preschool accompanied by his first tee-ball game makes for one sappy mama.   Hence, why this edition of ‘this…that’ features some sentimental moments as inspiration for these decor items.

1. THIS little man #6

Liam's Tee Ball


Makes me want to hang THAT inspirational pennant in his room.  Just so he knows that my hope for him in sports is to do his best.  BUT I wouldn’t be mad if he wanted to play every sport and practice all the time;)

How cute would that pennant be in the little mans rooms?!

2.  THIS little man who had his first day of pre-school this week

Liams First Day of Preschool

makes me want THAT piece of art to hang in our home…reminding me to always cherish the moments with the ones we love the most in our lives…b/c that really is what matters most.

3.  THIS sand filled hour glass makes me think back to


THAT little man and makes me realize just how fast time flies!  The sand filled hour glass decorative accessory would be the perfect decor item for a bookshelf.   We can’t stop time but boy do I wish I could sometimes.

Oh enough sap from me for one day…



I am amazed each day how the choices I make via fashion inspires my decor choices and vice versa.  Hence, why I am going to start a post called “This…That”.  Because this (decor or fashion item) inspires that (decor or fashion item).  Without further ado – this is how I was inspired this week from this and that…

1. THIS…

Jonah's Whale Outfit

Jonah’s Whale Outfit

inspired me to buy THAT whale for Jonah’s nursery to store goodies and keepsakes.  And it’s on sale now at Furbish Studio.

2. THIS fabulous DIY featured on Little Green Notebook

inspired me to wear THAT dress today.

3.  THIS light fixture…that I have starred at A LOT lately at 2a.m. or so rocking Jonah in his room


inspired me to buy THAT top.  J. Crew – on sale now, extra 30% off!

What has inspired you lately in fashion and/or decor that you translate in to the other??  You might be amazed how much they are connected.
