Is it Summer yet?

All of this freezing weather has me daydreaming of summer.  This Midsummer's Night Dream editorial from British Elle is really inspiring me right now.  The fluid fabrics, the lux colors, the fantastic headwear atop beach-blown hair....yes, please.

While a real day at the beach may not be as glamorous as these photos would have you believe, they do capture the magic of a summer sunset or the romance of discovering a new beach abroad.

Here's to daydreams of warmer weather and whimsical wonderlust!

Easy Valentine's Banner

How is it Valentine's Day already?  It seems like I was getting ready for Christmas just yesterday.  Valentine's is one of my favorite holidays, mostly because pink and red is one of my favorite color combos, so I can't pass up the chance to decorate at least a little!

Since I'm short on time, this quick and easy banner was just the thing to mix with my pre-assembled tassel garland and dot garland I already have.

I already had some plain white doilies and also red and pink heart doilies in my craft pile, as well as this pretty blush pink with gold dot ribbon.  I simply stacked the doilies and glued them to the ribbon.

Then I printed the letters (in Rosewood font) and used some metallic gold paint in the white spaces to make for a little extra shimmer.  

Hope you have some fabulous plans for Valentine's Day!

Emerald & Fuschia Office

It's no secret that I am a huge fan of neutrals in the home, but during the winter the artist in me craves color.  Somewhere between fuschia and ruby is an amazingly warm, cozy little color found in the accent color below. Pair it shades of emerald, lime, and mint and you're in colorway heaven.

Lately, I've been dreaming of my own office.  The type of space that is sophisticated and glamorous, with a touch of humor and whimsy.  You can't go wrong with classic banana leaf wallpaper for ultra Hollywood glam, and the vintage headvase adds just the right amount of fun to liven up the room.

Have you ever heard of Chairish?  Many of the pieces below (including the adorable accent chair) are from that site.  It's a vintage furniture sight with amazing designer finds!  They have beautiful modern pieces, as well as classics.  And while they have some gorgeous splurge-worthy items, they also have some steals (the adorable pink Staffordshire dogs below are just $100).  You should check them out!

Whimsical Wonderland

Having a baby at home during the holidays has given me so much joy.  Even though she is only a baby this year, as she grows up Christmas will become more and more magical for her.  I want to make sure that the holidays strengthen her faith and hope, bring her peace and joy, and spark her imagination. 

You can probably imagine that I love decorating for Christmas.  I love pulling out each and every homemade ornament and remembering the story of how it came to be, or pulling out a perfect, glittery glass ornament and marveling at it's beauty.  The baby watched me decorate the tree this year, and she was enamored with every single ornament that was hung.  I have a feeling this little girl is going to love sparkles, wonder, and whimsy, just like her mother.

Below are my pics to add some whimsy to your little one's winter wonderland!

Decisions, decisions.....
