Crate & Barrel ~ Rebuilding Joplin

Crate & Barrel is one of my all-time favorite stores. They never fail to impress with their sense of style which is always right on target - from classically traditional to the brightest, newest colors. I look forward to their catalogs and dream of moving into one of their cottages/houses.

It is one of my go-to stores when the holidays roll around. I always go and buy pretty accents for my home like serving dishes, place mats and napkins that are holiday-specific. Even small changes have a way of updating a table and making it crisp, new and special.

When I heard about the amazing work between Crate & Barrel, The Land of Nod and Extreme Home Makeover I had to post some pictures.

In their biggest build ever, the Extreme Makeover team and an army of volunteers built seven homes for seven victims in the tornado-ravaged community of Joplin, Missouri. Crate & Barrel and The Land of Nod furniture and accessories were used to outfit two of the seven homes.
A beach style cottage for the Walter's family
An eco-friendly cottage for the Nevin's family

In addition to donating merchandise, Crate & Barrel and The Land of Nod are sponsoring an online donation campaign through Tuesday, 01/31, in support of the American Red Cross to aid in their disaster relief efforts.

How can we all join Crate & Barrel, The Land of Nod and Extreme Home Makeover to help? Crate & Barrel have provided us with a link ( that contains more information and a way to make a donation.

I applaud the wonderful and thoughtful work of these three companies!  You guys rock!  Also - don't you LOVE this bed?  WOW!

Here are some of my favorite products used in the renovation:
DRIFTWOOD SIDE TABLE – isn’t this fabulous?

 – did you know that paloma means dove in Spanish?
DRIFTWOOD MIRROR – can you tell I’m on a driftwood kick? It’s so beautiful, natural and each one is unique!
