Here’s Group 5. Beauty abounds. Note: Because submissions picked up throughout the week, I did not get to see all of them! There were just too many good ones that kept me busy along the way.
Good morning!! How was everyone's weekend? I'm moving a little slower than usual after yesterday's big football game and a few to many glasses of sangria (oops), but that isn't stopping me from sharing with you this alternative dessert idea from The Knot blog . When entertaining, I am always looking for new ways to go about dessert (you can only serve so many cupcakes), so I can't wait to try out this individual pie idea at next Sunday's game! I think it will be a hit!
Today I want to share a lovely story with you, a heart warming story. I fell in love with the dress above (even blogged about it here ), but since I snoozed for a minute it was sold out by the time I went to buy it. I was frustrated and I just could not shake the dress. Finally I emailed Zadig & Voltaire to see if maybe maybe they had one somewhere.

The Oscars are on February 24th. Whether you're hosting an Academy Awards party or planning to lounge on the couch in your PJs, it's fun to mark predictions on a ballot and try your luck at Oscar bingo. Folks at your party will be counting the number of winners on stage, hoping the presenters will botch their lines, and cheering for the orchestra when it cuts off a speech. Movie theater gift cards, boxes of popcorn, or little Oscar statuettes from a party store make good prizes. A bingo refresher: The first person to mark off five squares in a line wins.
today is the one-year anniversary of my etsy shop. i hope it's not overdramatic or strange to say that i'm finding it almost as difficult to reflect back on the last year as i found it to reflect back on my son's first year of life. so much happens and changes in a year. our orientations toward things and events and life itself change. we move. we rethink. some things we wish we could redo. some things we wish we could relive. suffice it to say that it has been a good year and i'm really proud of my work. i'm continually astounded by how much i enjoy doing this. so this week is going to be a little bit of a celebratory week. i've got freebies lined up for each day of the week, starting today. as you'll see, all of the freebies are etsy orange. i thought it seemed appropriate. today's download is a pillowbox. the illustration is actually something i drew by hand for the new desk calendars and then digitized for printing.
The weekend is almost upon us and the first project for me to tackle is catching up on some much-needed sleep! I've recently found myself trapped in a ridiculous little ritual. Each morning at some dark, god-forsaken hour, I wake to an onslaught of thoughts and project ideas for this blog and for our home.... It then takes me hours to get back to sleep. Speaking of ideas, I recently came up with this cute and simple little DIY project...
