Bridget Beari Designs~ I'm back in the office!

I love everything about a design office...
A few weeks ago I started working at Bridget Beari Designs and love being back in the office!
 I met Susan, owner of BBD, at LaDiff's "Design Chat" over a year ago and again, last Summer, while working on our separate spaces at the RSOL Designer House. Working on my own was great while staying home with my baby Doak but I knew we were both ready for the next chapter! 

Floor plans

Susan has created her own paint line with amazing colors.
BBD is starting a fabric line too!

We met with a bunch of reps this week and picked out a ton of fabric samples.
Love O & L/Designers Guild!

Of course Doaky bear is hanging with me all day. : )
Right outside our office door.  Love it. 
And the best part... I get to hang out with kitties!
Bink and Ink! 
Last night we went to the IFDA event at Ferguson for the Reverse Trade Show. We hung out with fellow designers and met a ton of connections for future projects.
Good times! 
And I won a Kohler Flipside shower head!


Heading to the 'burgh for the weekend.
 Have a good one!

Much love,

Pretty in Pink~Morgy's Room!

Valentine's week has me thinking pink
Morgan is my sweet niece who wanted a big girl bedroom makeover. Her uncle Denny painted her room pink, she got new bunk beds, and picked out her own zebra print comforters! 

When I heard about this transition I got excited and wanted to add something special to her new room. Since I had extra leaves from Doak's nursery I thought it would be perfect to paint some branches and add some leaves blowing in the wind. 

Branches done!
This was such a great project for both of us because she could help with the decals too. 

She did great!
We had so much fun... while "decaling" we danced and sang our butts off! She discovered Gotye this day and gets excited every time she hears, "Somebody That I Used To Know." Haha! 

We wrapped the leaves around to the bunk bed wall and added extra butterflies and birds.
She loved when I put the leaves on the ceiling too! 

She's a natural.
Wowza, brown eyed beauty!

There's a smile.

So happy!

Another extra decal that she was crazy about.

Me, "Act natural..." 

"...but don't look sad!"

Morgan, "OK!"

(and out came this theatrical pose!)

Morgy's big girl room!

and her little slippers and shoes! I want them both.
Excited to spend more time with both of my nieces, Morgan and Abbey, next weekend! Going to see the play Annie, an absolute childhood fav!
Can't wait!

Hope everyone had an awesome Valentine's Day with your hubbs, wives, kids, friends, pets... whoever you love!

Much love on this end,

Sheets Works~ Amazing Art by my bud Dan Sheets!

Last Friday a bunch of us headed over to Dan's art exhibit at The Camel for the opening of "Wood Teeth." Works on paper by Dan Sheets.

The beautifully vivid lion piece, One Last Look, is featured on the first page of "The Goods" and Doak is on the second! : )

Hanging with the artist wife.

The Camel is a great music venue as well. Soooo, as soon as they started playing I started dancing...
and didn't stop until we left... These guys were great!
Good times. 

So proud of you Dan Sheets! 

Much Love,

Doak's Turn... Baby Thrift Jackets~

Last week I posted about VA being so cold and went through my Thrift/Vintage Coat Collection. Oddly enough, this week ended up being a, super windy, 70 degree beauty! Doak and I headed outside to do a photo shoot of some of his awesome thrift store finds too!

More importantly, some big changes have come across the Molitor family!
 This week I accepted a position with an amazing Interior Designer I met while presenting at LaDiff's Design Chat and later at the Richmond Designer House.
I am really excited and will post more about this in the next couple weeks!

This means my babe, that has been with me 24/7 for 20 months, will be starting day care next Monday. 
His eyes lite up when we went to check it out. He was over the moon to see toys surrounding the entire room and to be able to babble with little kids around his own age. This week we thrifted, chilled outside for hours, read a bunch of books, sang a million songs, danced to a ton of music and well, all the normal stuff we do, however I was completely in the moment knowing that it was the last time we were going to be spending our weekdays like this for awhile...  
I'm a bit sad but I know we are both ready. 

Tweed Blazer
Thought I'd start of with this tweed blazer because it was FREE! It's a hand-me-down from a little boy that my friend Heather watches. It doesn't fit him just yet but, omg, I love it!
Thanks, Heather!

Der, my hubby, always says Doak is running for mayor of Richmond. He waves, high fives and "pounds" almost everyone he comes in contact with and clearly feels very political in his tweed! 

Denim Hoody Jacket $4
Matches his little Levi sneaks.

Brown Corduroy Blazer $3
Deep thoughts by Doak

Black blazer was $4
What did you eat there, kiddo?

Too big...
but too cute not to show. 

Puffer Vest $3

 I used to have an all navy puffer in high school and loved it...  had to get this one for Doak!

Wind Breaker $2 & Winter Jacket $1.50 
Mom may have a crush on Kelly Green

Baby Toggle  $8
Doak may be over the whole "photo shoot" thing! : )

Sooooooo, I had back up.
Loves ginger snaps just like his daddy.

Can mommy have some?!

Love hanging with my sweet baby boy.

Haha, you're the best! 

Much love,
