    Look #2, for sure. Or maybe I should say hands down… I like the repetition of the blue and orange in the picture, and your hand position looks the most natural.

    A mix of all three – the background from 2, gold bracelet added from 1 and the white ring from 3. Also, what if you had a little bit of text on the notebook? A cute one word saying, or maybe a picture of a high heel (outlined in white)? Congrats on the new look!

    look number one! i like a little more leapord in this one too!

    I like the last one. The bracelet in #2 gets a bit lost. The jewelry in the last seems to be a bit more restrained and classic.

    LOVE the jewelry combo from #1, but wish your hand was turned more like #2, so we could see that fab orange ring!

    As much as I love the bracelet in #2 I am going to have to go with #1.

    I like the jewelry of 3, pose of 2 and background of 1. in 2, theres already some blue and orange. I love the ring and gold in 3.

    Thanks for the helps guys! I have a bunch of different shots with each one so I have some hand options to pick from.

    I'm having the graphic designer put copy on the black book so don't worry it won't remain blank,

    I love the ring in look #3 and the bracelet in look #2. That would be my fav. combo

  17. liz @ bon temps beignet

    September 27th, 2010 at 8:41 pm

    I like # 1 but the hand looks kinda strained…I think the hand in # 3 looks more natural. Imho

    September 27th, 2010 at 8:42 pm

    Number 2 reminds me the most of you and your style! The photo is also staged the best out of the three. Looking forward to seeing the new site!

    September 27th, 2010 at 9:27 pm

    #1 is my favorite…can't wait to see the new blog! Genius idea about including a resource guide!

  26. Jessica

    September 27th, 2010 at 9:27 pm

    Loving number 2!! I love orange and blue (may be because I'm a huge Auburn fan) but it really pops.

    #3 is just perfect

  28. Emily

    #1 is my favorite. Not too much but gives a good story!

  30. Jane

    September 27th, 2010 at 9:39 pm

    I love look #1! It looks the most polished yet natural.

  31. Jane @ The Borrowed Abode

    September 27th, 2010 at 9:45 pm

    Guess I'm an odd one out, but I love #3 the most – as far as jewelry is concerned.

    September 27th, 2010 at 9:53 pm

    love #3 I like the hand position

  33. SteFay

    September 27th, 2010 at 9:54 pm

    Love #1, but like many other people mentioned the hand position in 2 looks better. Did you just happen to have all this stuff laying around, and then jewelry to match? That's impressive!

  34. katiedid

    September 27th, 2010 at 10:11 pm

    # 2!!! Love the blue and orange combo, epecially with all of the other colors and patterns. Fun!

    September 27th, 2010 at 11:02 pm

    #2 No doubt. I think the lucite braclet (even though I love it!) causes a wierd reflection in #1.
    I'll follow you whatever your name πŸ™‚

    I love the orange flower & turquoise bangle – but let's face it on those glamorous hands they all look fabulous…


  40. High-Heeled Foot in the door

    September 27th, 2010 at 11:18 pm

    Thanks for all the help!

    You can imagine how hard it was to hold the book and have it look right. Look 1 was at the very beginning hence the the not great hand pose.

    Once I got to Look 3 the last one I finally figured out a way to hold it.

    I liked the look of two bangles, but most of my bracelets are large bangles so it's hard to place them on the tabletop. It was quite a process, but I love the way they looked.

    Look 2 was actually my least favorite, but if you guys love it then perhaps it's the winner. I can't make a decision for anything so I sent it to Carolynn (web designer) and told her to pick!


    That leopard fabric is my absolute favorite. It's the perfect scale and color and price (It was only $10 a yard) I bought it at Joanns a while back and they haven't gotten it back in stock for months. So sad. I only have one tiny square left.

    I like the 1st one best!

    I like #1 best – the gold bracelette combo with the ring look best and I love the leopard!

  48. -Kasey

    September 28th, 2010 at 12:32 am

    I like number 2. It's the one that *Pops* the most and just overall seems more fun πŸ™‚

  49. Jenn @ Living Luxe for Less

    September 28th, 2010 at 12:50 am

    I like them all and each jewelry combo is beautiful, but I like #1 the best because it shows the most of your design inspiration and resources…but honestly, I don't think you can go wrong with any of them!!!

  50. Hello Lover...

    September 28th, 2010 at 12:53 am

    Number 2! But I think having the gold elephant and whatever that orange box is a little closer to your hand will make it a perfectly styled picture – love the colors!

  51. Meredith

    number 2! The complimentary colors (blue and orange) pop each other and make the other color appear even brighter. So bold and fun!

  58. Melissa

    September 28th, 2010 at 1:53 pm

    Look #2!

  62. Kari

    September 28th, 2010 at 3:13 pm

    #2 has the best colors & position of the hand, a little less dead space in the cobalt blue area & it'd be perfect.


    September 28th, 2010 at 3:23 pm

    #2 is my favorite

  64. jessica o'brien

    September 28th, 2010 at 4:19 pm

    Look #1 jewelry is best, but it's not my favorite shot/hand position. Very cool!

    Thanks for all the help!

    I think I'm going to try and do another little photo shoot with option 1 and then see which I like better.

    I love the bracelet in option 1. It was actually a thrift store and I get a million compliments on it. Every time someone asks where it's from.

    #3 (hands in 1 and 2 weren't my favorite, and jewelry in 3 is slightly more understated which is always nice).

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.

Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

Budget Friendly Bar Carts

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
