oh joy-inspired pumpkins

It is blowing my mind that we are already edging on Halloween! Last year, we painted Artist-Inspired pumpkins...and this year, we painted a new batch inspired by the designs that surround us here at the Oh Joy office everyday! Inspired by our current furniture collection, we wanted to show how a pumpkin can really take it's cue from anything! So go out and be inspired by your surroundings, your favorite dress, or a color combination you love to get your pumpkin decorating started!

I'm pretty obsessed with our color combination for this month's Color Adventures...peach and green. It's inspired by a traditional pumpkin which is orange and green...but we tweaked it a tad to be softer and less pumpkin-like ;) See how this office came together in these two beautiful shades...

let's discuss: recurring dreams... 6 Oct 2017

oh joy bedroom

Throughout my childhood, I had a recurring dream of being chased up a grand, spiral stairwell by a large brown bear. My dream was always in black and white, yet I knew the stairwell was red and the bear was brown. Over time, that dream went away, and then for a decade in my early adulthood, I dreamt that I hadn't finished a class in high school or college and had to go back to finish it. In my dream, I would be the age I was in real life at the time, and I would figure out and wonder how I could possibly adjust my current life to go back to finish school (I either had a job or a husband or kids). Every time I dreamt it my real life had moved along yet I was dreaming the same scenario that I thought I had to go back to.

I think recurring dreams are so interesting because they're all supposed to mean something, right? Like you're worried or anxious...but the fact that you can have the same one over and over again must really mean something. What that is...I have no idea...

Do you guys have recurring dreams? If so, what about? I find them so interesting!

Oh, and happy weekend!

For this month, I wanted to share our take on a classic piece that transitions well from summer to fall—a maxi skirt. We're all wearing the same maxi skirt but in different colors so you can see how it works on all of us. And, we now have six people on the team! So you'll see a new face here below...

broken hearts... 2 Oct 2017

Spell and Tell print

How does a day that seems like it might just be any other Monday turn into a day that is not just any other Monday? How is it that almost weekly, it feels like there has been loss lately...loss of life, loss of love, loss of the happy Monday that could have been. This morning, I went about my morning routine not realizing what had happened late last night in Vegas. Once I connected and became aware, my heart and my soul were at a loss...I am at a loss for words. I've (sadly) said this before, but it's hard to feel like anything I have to say or post is very important right now. When people have lost their loved ones, when people have lost their lives. Today, I will hold my family closer, I will savor every day that I am here, and I will be sad for so many of us...for all of us.

If you are looking for ways to help, here is a link that shows a bunch of ways. Blood donation is a huge priority right now if you happen to be in or near Las Vegas and can donate.
