beaded beauties

I see a LOT of beaded jewelry, but there's just something different (awesome) about these earrings from Anthropologie... They're on my list.

fritts rosenow

Flowers not really your guy's thing? Fritts Rosenow has your back! I love these quirky bouts made from vintage toys, game pieces, guitar picks and a myriad of other odds and ends. Each one is made to order, and can be made to suit your man exactly!

tree and kimball

Lisa from Tree and Kimball emailed me last week about her adorable shop and these adorable headbands. I love that she uses vintage recycled bits and bobs to create her beautiful accessories.
More on our fantastic weekend up north to come, needless to say it was beautiful! Not only did we get sun, but we got a rainbow too!

a bowl full of good fortune...

... just what every newlywed couple needs! I'm off to my good friends' wedding in Vermont this weekend. We are planning an awesome time, rain or shine. I have had wedding gifts on the brain lately because of all the weddings I've been attending, but these would make equally cute favors. I just love the look of a bowl full of them! Enjoy your weekends everyone and keep your fingers crossed for clear skies in Vermont Friday night!

local plates

Love these! These decoupaged map plates come custom, featuring any locale you might like. I think they'd make a fantastic wedding present! From Bombus.

brenda's birdcages

Brenda makes the cutest veils! Birdcage + Feather/Flower Combo = Beautiful Vintage Style Without Looking Costume-y.

cotton jersey bouquet

Crafty? As you may know, I have been known to be crafty from time to time, and these are just the ticket! You can find the kit with everything you need to make this beautiful fabric bouquet here, and instructions can be found here. Happy Monday! Via the Purl Bee.

so smart.

I'm off for the weekend! I'm headed to Newport for a friend's wedding, and to my parent's to celebrate Father's Day. I hope everyone is expecting better weather than we are here in New England :(
I'll leave you with my new favorite place card idea, courtesy of Timeless Paper. Love this!

made by moe

Baubles from Made by Moe. The earrings are my favorite!


I love the organic textures on these rings by Elizabeth Scott Botanical Jewelry. Available in silver or gold. Mmmmm... gold.

pretty things

I spent a good half hour discovering little treasures on Nest Pretty Things this afternoon. I love the photography almost as much as the goodies! My favorites are the necklaces, and I thought they might make pretty gifts for your girls, or a nice little summer treat for yourself.

sarah magid

Sarah Magid makes gorgeous custom cakes, and best yet, they're all organic! Sarah's new book, Organic and Chic, offers recipes and gorgeous pictures of her work and is newly available on Amazon. Check it out!


Bowties? Perfectly preppy or definitely dorky? Would your guy wear one? These adorabable specimens are from Xoelle, I love the patterns.

barely there

I know I've posted a lot of little shrugs and jackets lately, but I just keep finding adorable ones that will not be ignored! These are from Twigs and Honey, and my favorite is the barely there tulle- perfect for someone who didn't have a veil, but wanted to add a distinctly "bridal" vibe to their ensemble. Love the flowers!

liquid gold

I love the shine woven into this dress! I'm picturing it at a beach wedding with an extra long veil in plain tulle, paired with a short, textured shrug (I'm thinking angora) in ivory to keep off the evening chill. So chic! From Nordstroms.

quirky is the new black

These grabbed my attention from the front page of Etsy this morning, and I thought they might make a quirky statement as part of an attendant's ensemble or even your own. I love the hat-like quality of the polka-dot one, it's so fun! It says: "Take myself too seriously? Never!". Hard times call for fun accessories. This is my new mantra.
I hope everyone had a great weekend! Ours was a whirlwind of driving, adorable babies, and making sure the dog didn't pee on anything that wasn't ours. I'm sure we had a great time, but it went by so fast! I need more weekend!

his & hers

We're off to Vermont this weekend for a little R&R with the Fam. I hope everyone has a great weekend, keep your fingers crossed for nice weather!
I found these adorable his & hers ceramics over at Studiotto, and thought they'd make an sweet shower or wedding gift. Until Monday!


I love the 80's-meets-00's vibe of these adorable purses. Modern, with a splash of Molly Ringwald, just for fun! Emma Gordon makes loads of cute styles, and BONUS! they all come in white! My absolute favorite is the flop-top clutch (the gray jersey version is on my "must have" list). Love them all.

fuzzy finds

All things soft and cloud-like from Tijusai. I adore the fuzzy shrug, it would be so perfect for a cool summer evening under the stars!
