Hello from across the pond,  Christin here reporting!  I'm writing today while Jeanette is busy gearing up for a move and other design projects.

This Friday quicky is all about the Brits! So to kick off the weekend I thought we would start with one of our favorite boy bands, One Direction (or the closest tween to you) may know of them?!?!  Haven't heard of them?  Well here's a video of one of their biggest hits, One Thing. If this doesn't make you love the Brits maybe some of the fabulous finds below will. 
If my house was a tad bigger (and I didn't have a toddler running around) I would LOVE to have one of these classic phone booths!  What a FUN and fabulous statement piece! Turns out they are a very hot commodity across the pond as they have just recently completed a HUGE renovation of all of the booths in preparation for the Olympics!  I found a great site (listed below) where you can purchase one of these booths and even customize it as you like it!  If you need something a bit smaller and your looking for a simple, yet unique way to incorporate a bit of British flair try this one of a kind, hand-painted mannequin!
Need a POP of color?  Look no further than the Queen for a rainbow of colorful inspiration! One of my favorite finds are the gorgeous Royal Mail stamp rugs.  They are shown below as a group but are sold separately. They come in a variety of sizes and can be used on the floor (or even better) on a wall as a piece of art! I'm also loving the re-finished dresser.  It's classic Union Jack with a TWIST! Just looking for a simple (single) bright idea?  Try one of these amazing Karen Hilton pillows.
If you are as inspired as I am to bring a little British invasion to your home well don't give up!  Just ask my friend Harry from One Direction what a little perseverance and a lot of British charm will do.
