I love gardening. I love planters. That's why I love Sprout Home. They have great planters, plant kits, stuff for the home, gift bags, you name it. It's a great site when you need to get a gift for someone. Here are a couple of my favorites.....

I love these rain chains from Smith & Hayken that were featured in Domino Mag (or it was Metro home...can't remember). Read the description they have on the website....so peaceful.
"Used for centuries in Japan as an alternative to a rooftop downspout, this chain helps carry rain from your roof with an artistic flair. Place a container underneath to collect water for the garden."

I thought today I would share with you all a little Tyler, Texas secret (that's where I grew up). Janie's pound cakes!!! A lady by the name of Janie Clapp, who everyone knows in Tyler, started her bakery 20 years ago. She used to create these fabulous cakes for every occasion. I remember when I was a little girl, I had a bowling party. Janie made me a cake that was an actual 3-D bowling ball with pins! Since the cakes were such a grueling process, she decided to stop making them and focus solely on her famous pound cakes. They are made with real fresh farm eggs straight from her ranch where she raises chickens. And guess what??? You can have one too and it will be delivered right to your front door step in this cute little yellow and white striped box....ready to eat!

So I am in the market for a new bed. Above, is a glimpse of my bedroom as it is now..well kind of. My bedding is the chocolate brown velvet quilt and the white with brown trim shams. I also have two throw pillows (shown in upper right hand corner in the brown color) on there in place of the zebra print ones in the photo. And my curtains are a chocolate brown damask print against my chocolate brown wall...you could eat my room up it has so much chocolate brown. So...since my room is sooooo BROWN, I thought a nice off white or beige color bed might work nicely. Below are some of my options I have been looking at. I also want to brighten it up with the fabulous white antler lamps from West Elm. What do you think....which one should I go with?
This one is on sale for $300, but I would
probably do the beige...this is a little too white for my dirty family!
I really really really love this one from Z Gallerie.
But again, it might be too white! $1795
And there's this one from Z gallerie... $1295
And this one I found at Club Furniture that comes in like 10 different kinds of fabric including linen. This bed reminds me of the one on the cover of the April edition of Domino (at least I think it was April). $1319
