If you’re looking for some good weekend reading, look no further than the web’s newest online mag, House of Fifty.  It’s my friend Janell’s baby, and the premiere issue is GOOD!

If you haven’t checked it out yet, you’ll want to click through stat!  The magazine covers a plethora of great topics like fashion…

Interiors…

Organizing…

Children…

And even recipes…

Surely all topics that interest you savvy and pretty readers.
I asked Janell just one question (she’s a busy woman after all):
LLL: What did you do once you completed your first issue? 
Janell: “I slept in.  Anyone who read my blog knows I get up at 5 a.m. to get a chunk
of work done before the kids get up, so sleeping in is a big deal for me!”
Well deserved, Janell!  Go see the premiere issue of House of Fifty!  And be sure to read The Letter From the Editor… good and inspiring stuff right there.

Today I’m over at Pretty Mommy’s Blog talking about
My Everyday Home Obsessions.
Hope you pop over and have a looksie.  And while you’re there give Michelle a
big hug of thanks for the 15% off discount code to her shop that she gave you all last week.
Sounds like a lot of you got some goodies! 
PS: Isn’t that watercolor drawing of an adorably pregnant Michelle and her daughter just the most?! Caroline over at It Looks Good to Me illustrated that for Michelle.  So cool!

I about fell over when I received this hand delivered and beautifully packaged gift from artist Sally King Benedict.

{Even I’m amazed at my restraint to stop and take a photo before opening!}  Isn’t that mixed media painting absolutely amazing??!  I was blown away by Sally’s generosity.  And talent.  It’s no secret that her art is pretty much tops in my books.  So I’m beyond thrilled to have my first piece of work by her. 
For now it’s sitting among some other pretty things in our family room (Josh lovingly refers to this as “the wall of Lilly”), though I’m not quite sure this will be it’s permanent spot.
{sorry this is blurry, you would think with such a nice camera I would actually know how to use it!}
Sally is a doll.  And I cannot wait to attend her art show at Stems downtown (it’s just 3 weeks away!)  Her whole collection will be outstanding.
{titled Garden Club}
Hope to see some of  you there.
