On My Mind || Stripes and other matters



[ colored glasses | striped skirt | black and white tray | grosgrain ribbon flats | straw tote | tablesetting ]

Let's start with the pretty, pretty, pink and white skirt....aaaahhh...Spring!  Perfect for Easter, garden parties, dinners out, or just because.  Its like wearing candy. Cute and sweet. So, in love with it.  And those cute pastel glasses I have to share with you because they are $35 for a set of four! Now that is such a deal for all of us who love our stemware and setting a pretty table in special occasions.  I sure wish I had them for my Easter table.  I'm having friends over and have begun thinking about the menu and the table decor.  I'm so in love with that tablescape photograph by Tory Burch.  She has the best dishes and tablecloth collection!

DIY || Bar'Moire



Finally!  You all remember back in September I posted about transforming my old Crate and Barrel armoire into a Bar'Moire (see old post here) since our new home was lacking such a space.  I finally have a reveal for you and boy was it a fun one to both plan and make.  It is very different from how I originally envisioned it but am so happy with it.  I still might add a neon light somewhere. But here you go- (keep in mind it was difficult to photograph because of the angles and lighting.)

Everything about this home is exciting.  Pay close attention to the artwork, floors and lighting choices.  Oh and it's in Paris.  It really can't get any better, right?

That day that we bathed ourselves in pearls



and arranged flowers and washed dishes. Happy Friday my sweet loves. It's Friday and it's warm. This makes me very happy.  Some days ago I mentioned I would try this pearl DIY with my jeweler friend.  So we did, and made some cute things: rings, bracelets and a necklace.  DIYing with a friend is so much more fun than going at it solo. We laughed so much and gossiped- perfect girl time.  We then did the usual...arranged flowers and washed the dishes...

On My Mind || Blues and Greens



We celebrated our anniversary last night.  Yummy french food and champagne. It was fun, but it was a school night. Oh and yes, we did have champagne- Did I mention that? So, I will make it short and sweet today.   Just some pretty blues and greens today to get you excited about all that outdoor time you will be enjoying soon.
