I’ve moved this DIY sea glass art (inspired by a @jennykomenda button art project from years ago! ) around my house so many times looking for the perfect spot for almost three years and I think I’ve finally found it 🌿 I love pieces that tell stories and this makes me happy every time I walk by.
Added a pop of color in the living room in the form of a giant baby walker 😂
When the weather outside is frightful, but this scene is so delightful... 🌸☀️🌱 My hair’s not cooperating, our yard is a soggy mess, and we are all going a little stir crazy here. Here’s a recent commission for some wonderful people whom I adore. 24x30 on birch panel “Show me the way.” #28februaryflowers #erikarobertsstudio #abmathome #livecolorfully #flashesofdelight #dslooking #mysouthernholiday #bhghome #housebeautiful #traditionalhome #myhousebeautiful #hgtvdesign #smploves #apartmenttherapy #interiorstruly #mydomaine #hgtv #findmemphis #igersmemphis #choose901 #ilovememphis #deepsouth #cotton #cometogether #9oh1 #southernhospitality #southerncharm #mysouthernliving #gardenandgun #the9oh1
So thankful for a man who loves and takes care of me every day, but still wants to make special days special. He’s my first and forever Valentine, and I love being his. One day soon it won’t be so hard to get pictures together. 😂♥️💕
Valentine’s Day brunching/bumping with my three valentines today. I’m at that point in pregnancy where when people tell me I look pretty I’m suspicious because I don’t know whether they mean “you look pretty” or “oh bless your heart for trying so hard, please don’t have your baby here.” Also prodromal labor sucks ♥️💕❤️ #35weeks

Happy Sunday everyone!! We will be attending church at the movie theater this am because our church had a major gas leak. No really...they are letting us use the theater for worship this am. Grateful and amazed how small acts of kindness can change days and lives. I feel like in my personal life, God has been urging me to be kinder. To do good for no good reason. This little sweetie in the picture and I have butting heads in a major way. Lots of emotions, hurt feelings and exasperation. Sometimes, when she wakes up angry and grumpy, I want to lash out. To point out the error of her ways. Instead, I’m trying to give lots of soft warm hugs and hope that we will have a breakthrough soon. This is no easy task for me. Do you think God gave us parenting to get a small glimpse of what it is like for him to create and observe us? I’m sure he is shaking his head and laughing at our household now. So many feelings and strong minded women under one roof...makes me feel a little sympathy for my parents when they were raising me. 🙈🤷🏽♀️ anyway, I digress. Hope you all have a wonderful day and if you have little ones with big feelings, hug them a little bit longer! #erikarobertsstudio #meettheartist #2018goals #2018. . . . #Sodomino #abmathome #livecolorfully #flashesofdelight #dslooking #mysouthernholiday #bhghome #housebeautiful #traditionalhome #myhousebeautiful #hgtvdesign #smploves #apartmenttherapy #interiorstruly #mydomaine #hgtv #findmemphis #igersmemphis #choose901 #ilovememphis #9oh1 #mysouthernliving #gardenandgun #the9oh1
Some encouraging words for the day! Print from @olivia_louise_shop Flowers by me @erikarobertsstudio I’ll have to makeup today for my #28februaryflowers. Busy day painting abstracts and commissions.

Bed head and bright eyes, this baby of mine has no idea what he missed while he was up sleeping. 🙈 I love family art projects, but he’s in a very “creative” phase (he likes to rub things all over himself ) and I’m so pregnant that I just can’t move very quickly - and they know it. Acrylic painting for two babes is a no-go. We’ll play with watercolors later 😉♥️ (The beginnings of a Valentine’s day art project in my story )
We’re not moving. 💔😭 I don’t deal well with disappointment or a major change of plans, so this has been super hard on me. We have really outgrown our current house and never would have moved in if we had known how long we’d be here. We got the house about halfway packed and ready before *real* contractions started in frequently, and there was just no finishing. Thankful everything worked out on the paperwork end, now we can just hang tight and be excited about baby girl’s arrival. (And hope the perfect house opens up in the summer or fall. ) 🤞🏻🏡♥️
I love Kiawah Island - not only because of the beauty and relaxation but also the wildlife that calls this place home. If you haven’t visited I highly recommend it, ride bikes on the beach, and admire the beautiful birds, alligators, and dolphins☀️
• Delegate Dinner • It doesn’t get easier than catering my friends. These mini-foods are from @kristenwinston and are both cute and delicious. We served them in new @pleasebeseatedrentals ceramic boats and cups and it’s a creative twist on the basics. You can of course make these items yourself, and by keeping the menu classic and simple, you’re guaranteed to please a crowd while also maintaining your own sanity when hosting! Sometimes sticking with the “basics” is the best option. Especially if it’s a football party- who doesn’t love a dog and fries!!! . . . . . #catchmyparty #mysouthernholiday #southernlivingmag #southernhostess #superbowlparty #superbowlmenu #superbowlsunday #superbowlready #tablescape #tabletopdecor #tabletopdesign #footballparty #footballpartyideas #hostesswiththemostess
Everyone is napping at the same time and the house is quieter than it has been in weeks. I enjoy these still moments when I don’t have to worry about someone stealing my orange juice, but not an hour passes before I start looking at the clock ready for the boys to wake up. They grow up so fast. ♥️

Welcome Weekend! I don’t know why... but Saturdays are always a fresh start for me. Kind of like a very mini New Years resolution. I think back on what didn’t go well the past week and how to improve in the upcoming week...I regroup, spend extra time with loved ones and hit the reset button! It’s just my nature... can’t be fixed...I’m a goal setter✨ I think that is the main reason why weekends are so “colorful” for me. I’m a basic neutral girl but come Saturday morning, I want to see some COLOR👌 Some fresh flowers, a new pillow, or a gorgeous urn😍 NOTHING inspires me like @alysbeachfl what an amazing destination right? All of their beautiful white and wood ... their stunning pops of color here and there have me sInging this morning!🌴 📷 @alysbeachfl Throwing a little color inspo your way! xoxo✨💚 #alysbeachfl #coastaldecor #coastaldesign #coastal #interiorforyou #coastalliving #vacationmode #beautifuldestinations #exteriordesign #urn #luxurylifestylemagazine #greendesign #outdoorstyle #outdoorstyling #exteriordetailing #greendecor #entrywaydecor #decorinspo #decorinspiration #mysouthernliving #mysouthernholiday #coastalchic
Things that have made me cry so far this week: looking at baby pictures of this snickerdoodle, running out of orange juice, preparing baby sister’s room, “Baby Mine” playing during snack time, two not even sad episodes of “The Crown,” all the recent honey bee killings, being really hungry and not being able to find anything I want to eat (literally every day ). I was never like this with the boys, so it must be the girl hormones, yeah? 😭 🎀
The holidays maybe over but I am still drooling over this front door seasonal display at our local florist! I just love how they used dried hydrangea and those lamp posts! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 #inthesouth #scenesofthesouth #mysouthernholiday #frontdoordecor #driedhydrangeas #decorate #artoftheentry #seasonaldecor
Can you believe I found those vintage copper pots and pans on sale for $30 at @route276 ? 🎉 That caused a happy dance for sure! The pot hanger was $20 on Amazon and the finished look makes me so happy. I’ve wanted something like this hanging above my stove for over a year but I didn’t want to spend a ton of money or rush it. I’ve been working on slow decorating since we moved into this house. Really living in our space before deciding how to best use it for our family and then waiting for the right piece. I found I had a closet full of target stuff that I bought because “I had to have it” but it wasn’t right for the space and ended up just being wasted. Anyone relate? Now I’ve paired my decor stuff down to one small closet and really love every piece I kept out- it makes such a difference in my mental space 🌿
When everything feels like a uphill struggle, just think of the view from the top 💙 You can do this!
It might be 3 weeks after Christmas- but some seasons that's just the way it goes. • I'm sharing our holiday house tour on the blog. I love our house- but I hesitate to share any of this because there are still so many projects I’d like to get crossed off our list. I have so many ideas of what I would like to add to our Christmas décor. But the theme that I keep having to remind myself that we will be in this house for a very, very long time and that is half the fun. There’s no need to rush to make it all happen now. • If I can be of any encouragement to new wives or new homeowners, let it be this: Enjoy the process of making your house a home. A story is no fun if you rush to the end. Creating and decorating your family home over the years is so much more enjoyable than any 48 hour house flip you will catch on HGTV. • So with that, here's a realistic view into our holiday home and real practical life blogging. ☺️ Take a peek into our home at the link in my profile. #welcometothewilletts
We had rain & clouds all day then just before sunset the sun came out! Our weather never ceases to amaze me 💛
Who ya got in the National Championship tonight? Take a seat in a Market Sample and make yourself comfortable, this game is bound to be a good one! 🐘🐶
Nighty Night 😴
Time to get ready to our back to school routines, which I’m definitely not looking forward to. Feeling a little sad our holiday break is over and it’s back to the grind. I’ll definitely miss the slow days of the holidays with the family. Anyone else feeling this way? ☁️ P.S.

Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase 💙
This room, my son's room. This is the only room in my entire house that never changes 😂 You'd think I'd change up my kids' rooms often because kids rooms are so fun! But no. His room has been this way since 2013 😳 I still love it. I picked a theme for his nursery that I knew would stay classic for years to come. I wanted masculine colors and a theme that was more mature than the typical nursery... so I went with vintage planes, trains, and automobiles! And guess what, Von LOVES all of those things 🙌🏼 score! 😂 my advice when designing nurseries or kid spaces on a budget (not that you asked, but here we go )... don't go super trendy 😬I know! I know, it's hard not to 🤷🏼♀️ But if you design a room with classic colors and simpler design elements you can swap out little knick-knacks and wall decor as the trends come and go 🤗 Just makes it easier to make small changes for less money! At the end of the day you do YOU. That's the great thing about decorating, there are no rules. And whoever tells you there are is just a big ole' Debbie Downer with a bad attitude and probably has a crazy intense wedgie. Be real, isn't having a wedgie and not being able to pick it one of life's smallest tortures?... it is. . . . Shop this room 👉🏼 http://liketk.it/2u8UH @liketoknow it #liketkit

“Take from this hearth its warmth, From this room its charm, From this Inn its amity. Return them not - But return” @omnigrovepark Absolutely 👌 I promise eventually I’ll post something other than fireplaces... but not until it gets above 32 degrees.
This may be an unpopular opinion, but I'm going to lay it on ya anyways in case some of you may be contemplating a white sink 😬❤ I'll start by saying that I LOVE the way my white sink looks... in pictures 😂 but in real life a white sink (at least from experience ) takes A LOT of maintenance if you want it to be sparkly white 24/7. I really don't have time for one more thing in my life that requires more from me. I've already got three needy humans that require a great deal of "maintenance" and I really don't have time to babysit a sink 🙈 Again, it's no big deal if you don't mind it looking a little dingy on the inside of it, which is the current state of my farmhouse sink 😂 but to keep it sparkly you pretty much have to wipe it down with a chalky cleaner every time you use it to keep it sparkling like new. Mine also has two cracks already 🙄 which you can absolutely see. That's probably due to a bad install, but let's not go TOO negative on this post. Talking about my contractor makes me think un-christianly thoughts *breathe in- breathe out 😮 Anyways, just wanted to be honest with y'all since I get a lot of messages about my sink! I'll show you pictures in the stories later today! Happy Saturday, friends! Who's working on home projects today?! 🛠👏🏼 . . .

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Years! 🎊 We really enjoyed our break but we’re now glad to be getting back into a routine with the kids. 😆 I’ve taken all of our Christmas decor down besides our tree and garland — I forgot we had nothing to store either in 🤦🏻♀️ so I ordered a duffel set from @thecoverstore It should be here next Monday, so we’ll enjoy the lights for one more weekend!
The journey is best measured in friends rather than miles 💗💗
Anyone else keep the "winter" pieces up from their Christmas decor? I find reindeer and pine cones to be just as wintery as I do Christmasy, so after the new year I take down all the red berries and leave a few wintertime components up! It's festive, fun, and it makes me happy!!
Hope you found a bright, cozy spot on this cold, snowy day! ☃️
Alas we have enough votes in this family for an all chocolate cake 🎉🎉🎉 and happy of happiest birthdays to our best guy... #hopethecrunchythingsarechocolatechipsandnoteggshells 🎂🎈❄️ #snowday #theyfightbecausetheyloveyou 😜 #forthemaking

Who has those insets in the walls beside their fireplace? I feel like these ombré wood shelves add the perfect rustic touch to a new-build home, don't they?! This living room belongs to my friend Courtney @thesoutherneclectic ! Best part?... She built these HERSELF 😳 I will be publishing a post pretty soon with step by step instructions so you too can create some awesome open shelving wherever you have some blank space in your home! I thought the ombré element was super creative! Check out @thesoutherneclectic to see more posts about how she decorates her home on the husband-enforced budget we all know too well 😂🙈 she's definitely #onetofollow ! It's almost the weekend, friends! ❤💃🏼
