Royal Cake

Friday, April 29, 2011

OK, how many of you admit to watching the royal wedding this morning?  Or DVR'd it, perhaps, or maybe even watched it live via YouTube?  I'm intrigued.  Beyond the fashion, which happens to be more fascinating to me than the red carpet, here's what I'm excited about... the groom's cake.  I wanna try it :)  Happy Friday!

A Wooden Crush

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

I've been crushing on wood lately.  This design idea has certainly been around for awhile with the whole popularity of "green" design, but to be honest, I just like the look of it... A wooden dining table with modern accents.  What design idea have you been crushing on lately?

It's Raining Confetti

Monday, April 25, 2011

I hope you all had a FABULOUS Easter.  Now that you're winding down from all the festivities of the weekend, here's a little wedding inspiration for you to enjoy.

I am simply delighted by this spring inspired wedding shoot by Wednesday, Inc.  I really don't have to say much about this as the pictures speak for themselves, but here a few details of the wedding that I can't get over!!  If you wanna check out more of the wedding gallery, view it here.

Beyond The Easter Dress

Friday, April 22, 2011

I love Easter.  Ever since I was a little girl I have loved this holiday.  With high anticipation of the Easter bunny sneaking in at night to place candy & other goodies in my basket, and going to bed with sponge rollers in my hair for that Sunday morning southern curl and then putting on the puffy dress with matching ruffled socks for church... I'll never forget that part of Easter.  However, it is SO much more than that.  As you put on your Easter best (yes, I have a new dress!), I hope you remember or get the opportunity to hear what Easter is all about.

"Jesus said to her, 'I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies, and everyone who lives and believes in Me will never die.  Do you believe this?'"   -John 11:25, 26

"Jesus took my place on the cross to give me a place in heaven."  -unknown

"The benefits [of the resurrection] are innumerable.  To list a few: Our illnesses don't seem  nearly so final; Our fears fade and lose their grip; Our grief over those who have gone on is diminished; Our desires to press on in spite of the obstacles is rejuvenated...Our identity as Christians is strengthened as we stand in the lengthening shadows of saints down through the centuries, who have always answered back in antiphonal voice: 'He is risen, indeed!'"    
-Charles Swindoll

Mateo & Tobias Prints

Friday, April 15, 2011

These prints made my (last) night!  While looking for something cheery to post for this weekend, I ran across this delightful shop on Etsy.  To my surprise, I didn't stop at just one, but kept going through their entire online shop because of the bright and happy prints I found!  These are some of my favorites...

...these last two are my absolute favorites because of each of their sayings :)

Have a wonderful weekend!

Show(house) Stopper

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

Check out this gorgeous showhouse by designer, Tobi Fairley, featured on Traditional Home.  To create the "green" look in the bedroom and attached sunroom, she salvaged used furniture and accessories, layered the beds with organic linens, and low-VOC paint.  Just the right amount of bright and colorful. 

Sofa Searching

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

You've heard of 'couch surfing', well I'll be 'sofa searching' pretty soon.  I plan to move to a new place in Dallas.  Since I live with my sister, we have been using her amazing modern sofa, but that means, I will need my own upon move out.  Here are a couple I like...
Modern lines, button-tufted back.
White, comfy, and classical.

If you have any ideas for me on where to search, let me know!

Goooo Varsity!

Monday, April 11, 2011

According to this article in New York Times, the varsity (letterman) jacket is on its way back in style.  I mean, it might as well be.  In fashion, everything is coming back in style –– most of them, I simply don't understand and want to scream, "please go back to the decade in which you belong!" –– anyone with me on this?  What do you think about this old school trend?  Did you have a letterman jacket in high school?

Pucker Up!

Friday, April 1, 2011

This evening, I'm headed to an event called Pink'd at the Dallas Galleria benefiting a local junior league.  The night is said to include beauty secrets, makeovers, sips & bites.  I'm pretty excited to take the night off and treat myself!  Other than tonight, I will be dog-sitting and visiting with some favorite friends over the weekend.  What do you have planned for the next few days?  
Oh, and Happy April Fools' Day! ;)
