Chevron Love

I am seeing Chevron stripes everywhere! It started with the Nate Berkus rug and then I noticed my Pinterest boards were full of the zigzags.






But when I saw them on a firetruck in the Walmart parking lot- I knew it was time for a post!


Chevron is defined as:
n.
1. A badge or insignia consisting of stripes meeting at an angle, worn on the sleeve of a military or police uniform to indicate rank, merit, or length of service.
2. Heraldry A device shaped like an inverted V.
3. A V-shaped pattern, especially a kind of fret used in architecture.

Although they can be traced back to art from the ancient Greeks, Chevron stripes have recently become the darlings of home decor. 









You can even wear it!

A Royal Wedding Party- and free printables!

Are you counting down the days until the Royal Wedding?




I have several friends who have their dvr's set and ready to go. Such a big event would be fun to watch with a group of 'fairytale loving' girls-- don't you think?




Click here for the free printables!




A little bling...




Kate herself would be the perfect decor for the table.





Apparently Prince William is breaking tradition with his groom's cake. Try this easy, no-bake version of his 'biscuit' cake using broken cookies and dark chocolate icing!





And a Royal Blue drink- - just for fun!




So slip on a dress, pull back your hair, straighten your tiara, and turn on the tv.






Maybe I will even get a last minute call from the Royals ...




needing me to make something fancy for their hair!

What a weekend! We had so much fun celebrating Easter with our dear family at my mom's house. Lots of delicious sweets, great company, and an egg hunt too.
