bring on the pets!

Can it be true?  Can pet accessories be totally awesome??  Yes!  Here are just a few that have caught my fancy.

This "Fish Hotel" from Crate and Barrel is just fabulous!

This water dish is from Poshpuppyboutique and it looks like a hip table-top water fountain!

Cottage Style

Inspired by our trip to the beach I figured Cottage Style would be a great stop in my Find Your Style series!  Yes, it's been a while since I wrote about Hollywood Glam but we'll ignore that fact and move on to a light breezy style that has fun while being functional and relaxing.  

Cottage Style can mean so many different things because each coastal region (even the Great Lakes) has its own style.  I'm going to focus on Southern beach cottage style for today, though.  Light and airy but not afraid of tropical colors and definitely NOT afraid of nautical accessories!
