3 Years! I cannot believe ADOD is three years old today! As a special little present to all of you, I am so excited to share the new A Dash of Details. I really did loved my old site, but I knew it was time for a facelift and make the move to WordPress. After 6 months, lots of help from a good friend and a few sleepless nights last week, I want to welcome you to the new A Dash of Details.  The new site is much easier to navigate. You can now find all of my social links (and subscribe) at the top right of your screen, these will stay with you when you scroll down the page.  Also, be sure to check out the new menu bar at the top. I have updated the ABOUT ME section and now you can search by category, just scroll over CATEGORIES on the bar to find what you are looking for.  If you want something more specific, there is a search bar for easy use! Also, you don’t want to miss the SHOP, now you can find all of my favorites in just a click of a button. Since I made the switch from Squarespace to WordPress, make sure to bookmark my page and also re-follow me on Bloglovin’ to make sure ADOD shows up in your reader every morning.

In honor of the new ADOD, I thought it was only fitting to pull out the sequins. The holidays are the perfect excuse too add some sparkle!

ANIMAL PRINT SHOP

Today I was missing our old house in Kansas City. It was the first time a place was completely mine, well ours (: so I decided to share some of my favorite things from our old living room. 

One of my favorite things about our old place was the living room because was so open and full of light. The room stated as one big white (cream) blank slate. Neither of us owned any furniture, so it was so fun to pick pieces out together that we knew we were worth the investment. * A little funny side note about that, all of this is in a fun storage unit.

My favortie part about furnishing our place was picking out art. Obviously, just starting out (with absolutely nothing) we could not afford to spend bucko-bucks on artwork, but I knew I wanted something original and quirky. Insert= the American Buffalo. The room was starting to feel a little girly, so the print added a little masculine touch. When I ordered the Buffalo from Sharon Montrose’s Animal Print Shop, she sent us this darling little giraffe print, too and naturally I have to put it in a frame. 

While I am not missing my girlie, Zoey, this picture was just too cute to leave out.  She is just such a ham.

Shop Sharon Montrose’s collection from The Animal Print Shop, also the navy and white pillow is from the amazing and talented, Rebecca Atwood!
