My talented sister Patty of Parima Studio, just launched her Rose Collection of fine art prints, inspired by a trip we took to a rose farm back in May. I have loved being able to witness the development of it over the past few months and am so proud of her. She's so talented and passionate about what she does, which I think shows in the end product.
As mentioned in a previous post, earlier this month, Style Me Pretty Living, one of my favorite lifestyle sites, featured a tour of my previous home. Since the feature went up, I've received inquires about the sources of some things, so I thought I'd post a complete list here for anyone else who may also be curious to know. Because the apartment was a rental that we planned to live in for only about 2 years or so and we had other priorities financially, when it came to decorating and furnishing it, we did so on a small budget, splurging only on a few select pieces. BTW, this post from 2012 shows a few photos of what the place looked like when we first moved in!

Q: The base of my Docksta table gets dirty easily from people resting their feet on it, how do you keep yours clean?
A: Magic Erasers!
Q: How did you hide the wires and cords of your wall mounted TV in your living room?
A: We used these cable management covers we found on Amazon. I've also seen similar ones at home improvement stores.
