Thank You! (and a Giveaway)

noteworthy This month I’m feeling especially grateful and excited! From the Room for Tuesday store opening to the Domino Blog Awards nomination, it feels like big things are happening over here. I owe that to you guys! Click through for a brand new noteworthy post, a thank you giveaway, and weekend inspiration….

First and foremost, if you have the time to vote each day until October 31st for Room for Tuesday in the Domino awards… please do that here. Thank you, thank you, thank you- really. I appreciate it so much. I’m among incredibly talented bloggers (who I admire) in the “everything” category and I’m definitely the little guy. Your support means the world!

Secondly, if you haven’t had time to check out the shop, give it a look! I add new and vintage finds every week. I’m having the most fun shipping decor and accessories to beautiful homes and people who appreciate them. Thanks for your words of encouragement, I’m hoping this part of the blog can really grow. As a thank you, you’ll find a giveaway for a print of your choice at the end of the post!

Alright, onto the noteworthy stuff…

Utah is gorgeous right now! Hence the insanely beautiful intro image. The aspens turn the brightest yellow I’ve ever seen. Sadly I’ve been constantly trapped behind my desk for the past few weeks and I’m making it a goal to go on a hike this weekend with the dogs, even if it’s just a short one. I’d love to take my camera and snap some images for prints. Someone requested a pine tree. This is why we moved here and I need to practice a better work / life balance anyway. This month has been the busiest! Anyone else feeling that way?

I found SO much inspiration in this interior article…. but then again, I’m a big fan of leather (obviously- we have a giant leather bed). Speaking of my master bedroom, I’ve swapped some things out in the space for fall and winter. I have a post planned to show you what I’ve done… stay tuned!

This airstream is bonkers. Emmett has been dreaming of buying a ‘fixer upper’ camper. While I think it would be really fun to gut one and travel around with our pups, I think I’d like to have a kitchen more at this point. Of course if we had an endless budget, I’d totally be on board. Maybe in the future! I actually think it would be a really good design challenge- you have to think of the aesthetic, but more about function and materials that are lightweight. Obviously we both like adventure and it sounds really amazing, but I’m definitely still set on the kitchen (despite his tempting persuasion). Would you guys follow along a camper renovation someday?

West Elm just emailed over my birthday reward money (yay!!) and I’m going to put my $25 towards a little gift to myself. These are also on sale right now! The scent is right up my alley and once I’m done burning the candle, I’ll use the marbled vessel as a planter. I see wine, candles, and a relaxing bath in my near future.

I’m finally making my blogger bf Joanna’s avgolemono soup this weekend and I can’t wait to try it! It has rave reviews and she shares the BEST recipes. Tomorrow sounds like the perfect fall day for comfort food- especially after an exceptionally busy week.

I know I promised to share a live Insta story about my makeup routine this week, and I’m really sorry I didn’t squeeze it in. I added it to my list for next week (fingers crossed). Maybe I’m procrastinating because it’s a bit out of my comfort zone? Ha! Oh well… a promise is a promise.

My last four purchases? A black floor vent for the bathroom (which I won’t even bother linking because that’s BORING), this wreath for fall (which I can use season after season, since it’s preserved)this bath brush for our ORC space, along with this black toilet brush. Toilet brushes are gross, I know… but they are sort of necessary- and if I have to have one, it might as well blend in with this gorgeous floor tile. I’m hoping nobody will even notice it tucked in the corner.

Ok- enough rambling. Go enter the giveaway for a print of your choice (you can choose the size too)! See the options in the shop.

Here’s how to enter:

  1. Follow Room for Tuesday on Instagram (bonus entry if you follow my personal account too)
  2. Follow Room for Tuesday on Pinterest
  3. Leave a comment below with what print / size you’d like!

Easy peasy! Good luck and THANK YOU. Everyone have an amazing weekend. I’ll choose a winner next week! xo

    I would take that cover image in a heartbeat… but if i have to pick from the shop I pick the Road Trip print in 12 x 12. Also floor grates are boring- but I need to find some too- link it! Last 4 things I bought… Jeans for the hubs, a top for me that’ll also go with my Halloween costume, new dog bed and some new pillow covers/ bedding to go with our ORC Bedroom makeover. Fingers crossed it all arrives in time!

    Congrats on the Domino nomination! I’ve been voting!
    My favorite prints are the windmills, horses, and bison (impossible to pick just one).
    Windmills because I love the black & white… and I’m also from Indiana where there are so many windmill farms near my parents’ house… reminds me of home :)
    I also love the Bison and Horse prints because they remind me of Oklahoma, where my grandparents have a ranch. I spent so much time as a kid admiring their horses, and begging my grandpa to let me ride them!
    And you gotta go 24×36 on the prints! I love the look of a big, bold frame.

    DEFINITELY a kitchen over a camper! (guess I am voting on a couple things in your favor ;), haha). From the shop, I’d choose Dusty and Derby in color, 24×36, and it took me a minimum of 45 minutes to make that decision. Your photographs are gorge – hard to choose! I follow both insta accounts – good luck with the Domino awards, and congrats.

    All so beautiful!! Such a hard decision between the Beach Path & Mountain Cottage (true in real life too!)

    I think for our home, Beach Path would “go” better. :)
