Indoor Garden

Each Spring/Summer, I get the itch to start my own garden.  Because it seems like we are always about to move (this fall will be #9 in six years), it's just never been the right time.  Maybe your issue is more about limited outdoor space than a transient lifestyle, either way I find these images so inspiring to bring the outdoors inside.  Whether it's a couple plants or a wall full of plants, they add so much to a space.   Ps. What do you guys think about this glass bedroom?  Love or hate?

Bar Cart Love

(Pssst.....I'm over HERE today)
Minus special occasions, I have never been one for wine/mixed drinks.  In the back of my mind I secretly cringe at drinking my calories (alcoholic or nonalcoholic).....I would rather splurge on something sweet.  But during my pregnancy I did crave some Disaronno.  So, Red and I bought some to have on hand as a celebratory cocktail after Reese was born.  That brings me to today's post......I love a good bar cart.  There is something so timeless and hospitable about a bar cart.  Enough Said:

This one might be my's a vintage nightstand turned bar cart.

Small Bathrooms, Big Statement

First of all, I'm being featured over at Apartment Therapy today here.....thanks to everyone for all the kind comments.  Whether you've been around for a while, or found RestlessOasis via my recent features in Knock off Decor /Apartment Therapy, I hope you decide to stay a while.  I would love to hear from you! Secondly, (besides the pending birth of our baby...HA),  wallpapered bathrooms have been on my mind lately.  Specifically- I love a small bathroom with wallpaper.    So often, many of us don't know what to do with a such a small space....and end up not doing anything at all (right?).  I love how these rooms are celebrated and beautiful without being overstyled.  Insert big impact wallpaper.
