It's that time of year

When I tend to disappear for long spells.
Merry Christmas!

The most ridiculous over-the-top...gorgeous birthday party ever.

And it's for a 2-year-old.

The invitations, the flowers, the Mosser cake plates, the anthro-catalogue-invites, the paper straws, the DRESSED UP BUNNIES!
Shoot me now.

I have of late discovered my love of most things Art Nouveau.
In that spirit I am unable to get this mirror out of my mind.
I cannot possibly justify it to the husband, I need one more fragile item to move across the country like I need a hole in my head.
But I will be sighing over this mirror for years to come.
(On the bright side, Longwood is offering an Art Nouveau Floral design class and I'm totally taking it!)

Most perfect vintage dress ever.
Anyone have $177 to spend on me?

Decant - The perfume Court

I'm slightly loving this idea.
The Perfume Court and the Scented Salamander essentially sell you a decanted sample of just about any perfume. Perfect in the world of online shopping where you don't want to drop $80+ for something you may hate.

Owl Shower

I was thrilled to stumble upon this owl baby shower, especially since we have a similarly-themed first birthday party coming up. Are owls trendy? You tell me.

sunburst mirrors

I've been hankering after sunburst mirrors lately.
Or rather, they've been popping up in my dreams.
If only I could find something like one of these lovelies on clearance at Homegoods.
Yeah, I know.
That will also be happening in my dreams.

If you have a girl, it is worth joining Hautelook just for this sale on Niege clothing. {It's another one of those deal of the day type sites.} Oh, such pretty girl stuff. (Then you browse down through the boys and feel significantly less excitement.... story of my life).

The little green notebook strikes again

I am all but obsessed with Jenny's latest project.
I have GOT to get myself some girls!

Perfect Kitchen

For the record, I am deeply, madly in love with this kitchen.

Amy Butler Rugs

Have you heard that Amy Butler is making RUGS now?
Too bad that by the time I can afford one; everyone will have one.

I am mildly obsessed with these canopies by Boutique Tents, spotted on The Brides Guide.

The Free Wedding

Have you heard about the free wedding? (All 7+ posts worth)
A group of vendors was planning to stage a pseudo-wedding to showcase their work, then decided it would be more fun to have a real wedding for a lucky winner. Can you imagine?

So in love with this wedding-spread full of jadeite and milk glass.

Uniform Project

Have you heard about the Uniform Project?

I think it's pretty cool. Sheena Matheiken is wearing the same dress every day for a year (she has 7 identical dresses, so it's not gross). And changing it up every day. I love how limits and simplicity sometimes spark the greatest of our creativity. I love what she comes up with. Check it out.

Todd's 30th Birthday

I just got this Postcard from my college friend Todd.
Best mail I've received in a loooooong time.

How cool is this article on the fine art of blanket-fort-building?

For me, nothing embodies summer more than homemade lemonade. This lemon juicer has been my best friend lately, and the best part is that I've trained my preschooler to do all the squeezing!

Did you know that there's an insane amount of lovely peacock-hair-ephemera out there?
I've had peacocks on the brain, and I've been seized upon with a desire to find a tasteful peacock-themed wedding or bridal shower to look at, and while I haven't quite succeeded, I've found tremendous potential.
If I just revealed that I'm insane, please keep it to yourself.

milk glass

I happily came to the realization today that there are entire etsy shops devoted to vintage milk glass.
Someday I intend to have quite the collection.

{Perfect} Peter Pan Party

This little party made it all over the interwebs back in spring. It couldn't help it, it was a perfect party. All other little parties will forever pale in comparison. If ever I didn't want to grow up.....

Layer Cake Shop

Speaking of parties, Layer Cake Shop recently opened with a site-load of perfect baking accoutrements. They have a sweet "ideas" feature coming soon!

Yellow Party

I loved this yellow party.
Gee, I wonder why?

Okay, actually that just brings back bad memories of how every job I delegated to someone else got screwed up. (Picking up balloons... forgot. Icing the cupcakes.... they looked like they'd been sat upon.... bad day.)

Bee party

The thing I love most about this bee party is that it wasn't just planned to look good, but to be fun too. Sometimes I forget that part, myself.
