Erica Tanov

I love the simple and soft looks of Erica Tanov. Sweet and lovely...


Wedding Wednesday

My shoes came today! So I went with the pair from Nine West that I blogged about two weeks ago and I am so happy with my choice. I grew up dancing and they resemble pointe shoes...the satin, hard shank. Perfect, now we can hem the dress :)


Before & After: Craft Table

My mom has become a personal seamstress during all of this wedding planning! Not only is she creating my dress, she is creating my 8 bridesmaid dresses, as well as my matron of honor's (aka my cousin) wedding dress. With all of this fabric and no place to cut it, it was only a matter of time before she got herself an appropriate table. She stumbled across a 4ftx8ft sewing table at a local fabric shop and bought it right away. She has spent the past few days repainting it and recovering the "strawberry shortcake" covered top. Doesn't it look great?? I am jealous!
Oh and her other "project", introducing the new puppy, Molly, into their home :)

Found this fab photographer via delish that has done great work for clients like kate spade. I love having an endless array of work to glance through. So beautiful!

Big Blue

We spent the weekend cleaning up our C&P Pilot Letterpress. After scanning the aisles of paint, we decided to go with bright blue, can't you tell? :) I just wanted to share the before & after pictures with you, just to show you how far a little tender-love-care can go!



I found these pieces by Rosanna to be quite nice. A little bit feminine, with a little bit of flair. Nice color palettes as well. These dishes are each created by hand, "Handcrafted in a Mexican village, each piece is individually mouth blown, hand etched and sandblasted with distinctively Rosanna patterns … modern, yet comfortingly familiar."


Astilbe Designs

I love stud earrings, and I thought these from Astilbe Designs were just too cute.
