R.Home~July/Aug Photo Shoot!


The R.Home photo shoot for the July/Aug was taken at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts!
We had the privilege to use the deck that overlooks the beautiful work of Chihuly!

Oh and thanks for the Mocha Iced Coffee, Chef JoJo!
Photographer in action!


We had a bunch of ideas between all of us and finally nailed it after a lot of playing around with the items I brought.



And here it is...
The "Where To Find It Guide," is the best issue b/c you get the best of the best info in Richmond!

Of course Bridget Beari Designs is in the Interior Design section. ; )


This is what we decided on! 

And page 2!

Love all these plates, bowls, cups and trays!
Melamine is killer... especially when you have kids! : ) 

Much Love,

Doak Fest 2013!

This month Doaky bear turned 2!

It was perfect timing to have a party considering my family was making their way down south for our OBX vaca!

I created a carnival type atmosphere with a bouncy house, popcorn machine and this kinda creepy photo booth!
The Sixed Armed Man!!! 
Doak helped me paint it and create his decorations... 
true story!

The coolest part is I bought most of the carnival accessories awhile back. I knew I wanted to wait to use them when Doak was old enough to enjoy it.
See Post: Vintage Circus Party on the Cheap 
Here are some photos of the day...
