    Gallery Wall styling on Oh Lovely Day | Design & Styling by Em Henderson via Oh Joy

    Hey Oh Lovely Day readers! It’s Heidi from Spitfiregirl – A design studio and lifestyle blog. I’m also the co-founder of The SpitfireMom Society, where we recently featured one of favorite moms ~ Chandra!

    I’m really excited to be guest blogging here today…Chandra and I have seemed to lead parallel lives ~ between our active sons, our love of peach & gold, and our recent moves – you’d think we were twins. Well, at least judging by our pinterest boards!

    Which leads me to this post. Today I’d love to share some of our mutual home styling inspiration!

    We are frequently repinning each others stylish finds – which is helpful since we’re both short on time, what with unpacking, running a business, a family and all 😉  Here’s a few finds that we both loved:

    Fireplace Styling:

    We both have moved into homes with fireplaces. I must admit I am totally envious of Chandra’s all-white version.

    For the love the gallery wall:

    I’ve always wanted to create one, and now that I have the wall space (sans Victorian wainscoting)  I am soaking up all the inspiration:

    For the kids room:

    Our active pre-schoolers are getting bigger rooms, which means more space to design! We both loved this cool library wall, and hello…who doesn’t love a teepee?

      I love the black fireplace wall. Black walls make such a bold impact.

    •  Motherhood is a constantly evolving state of total joy, exhausted agony, superhuman strength, and very human failures. As soon as you celebrate that superhuman successful day, it is replaced with new challenges. And just when you think you can't go one more day, you get a day so magical you want to have ten more babies. I'm in the midst of one of those exhausted phases again but I keep trying to remind myself that it is this phase that makes the magical days shine brighter. In the wise words of Miley Cyrus (I'm actually serious): it's all about the climb.  We've got this mamas. (Tag a momma who needs to get cheesy and read the words to a Miley Cyrus song ) #battlefieldmotherhood _______________________________________________ I can almost see it. That dream I'm dreaming, But there's a voice inside my head saying, "You'll never reach it." Every step I'm takin' Every move I make feels lost with no direction, My faith is shakin' But I, I gotta keep tryin' Gotta keep my head held high There's always gonna be another mountain I'm always gonna wanna make it move Always gonna be an uphill battle Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose Ain't about how fast I get there Ain't about what's waitin' on the other side It's the climb The struggles I'm facing The chances I'm taking Sometimes might knock me down, But no, I'm not breaking I may not know it, But these are the moments That I'm gonna remember most  Just gotta keep goin', And I, I gotta be strong Just keep pushing on, 'Cause... There's always gonna be another mountain I'm always gonna wanna make it move Always gonna be an uphill battle Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose Ain't about how fast I get there Ain't about what's waitin' on the other side It's the climb.  39 weeks today and you've now been growing outside of my body as long as you were growing inside. And growing, and growing, and growing... ☺️❤️ #quincysweekbyweek #39weeks
       We have this hat, passed down to Charlie from my friend's little boy, then passed down to Calvin. It's just a simple grey hat but it is so so cute and is the thing that my boys wear the most in the toddler years. It holds so much sentimental value for me. Well yesterday I took the babies on a walk and somewhere along the way Calvin chucked it. He also tossed his shoes but I saw those right away. It wasn't until we stopped for lunch that I realized the hat was gone. I was so sad about it that I retraced our steps to see if I could find it. No luck. I'm pretty sure he tossed it in Goodwill while I was digging for stuff for our Halloween costumes. Which means it is gone, because when you lose something in Goodwill it is seriously like looking for a needle in a haystack. I've been sick about it ever since, which I know is silly. It's just a hat, after all. But it's one of those things that I was planning to pass to Quincy and then save forever and when I was old and grey I would dig it out of the attic and take a walk down memory lane. You moms know what I'm talking about. But it's gone and all I have are photos and the memories. Luckily Calvin had started putting it on Quincy's head and last week I snapped this picture. Charlie and Calvin both kept saying "cuuuuuuute" ❤️ I hope it makes its way onto another little boy's head someday #thefredrickboys #calvinandquincy #brudders #thebrotherhoodofthegreytoddlerhat  You've got a few hours left to enter to win your choice of sling from @mywildbird - head to my blog to enter now!
