January iPhotos

The last few weeks have been somewhat laid back for us, which is rare. It's been very enjoyable and we took full advantage! I'd say 2012 is off to a great start...

29 days of THINGS I LOVE coming your way, starting tomorrow!

make it sweet :)

A Monday Tune...for a Monday Wish...

I'm feeling fancy today...donning my fur vest, high bun, matchstick pants and ballet flats. 
Wishing I was back here, rather than the office!!

May I also recommend listening to "Dance with Me" by The Sweet Remains...

à bientôt!

Une Fête Fabuleux

I'm in the mood to host a dinner party...

I could probably start here considering we actually have Vietri dishes that look quite similar to these... 

but it has occured to me that I need pretty vases, table linens, flowers, and maybe some more vintage cake plates! Also, a dining room would help so more than 3 guests could be invited...

After all that effort, I may be le tired, so let's just cut the menu down to the essentials:

Cie la Vie!

Any brides out there need a laugh?

I know planning a wedding can be stressful...so, I find this quite appropriate considering I have like 7 girlfriends who are engaged...

I wanna be swallowed in ruffles.

Stuff: Vintage

I made THE BEST discovery this week. My heart started racing and I got soo giddy (am I the only one who swoons over this kind of stuff?!) While I was prowling CraigsList (which I often just do for fun) I stumbled across this warehouse shop that specializes in revamping Hollywood Regency, faux bamboo, glitzy mid-century design pieces. AND they're for sale at a fraction of the price of the furniture sold at Pieces. I love Pieces, but this is right up my ally, y'all. What up! They're located in Greensboro, so you can call or email Melissa for an appointment if you're in the market for some fabulous furniture or vintage chic accessories!

Can't WAIT to visit!! 


Pretty Reads


I've been lacking a little in blogspiration! I'm choosing to blame it on Pinterest. Just sayin. Talk about over saturation, right? It's a love/hate these days. In a little bit of news, our master bedroom project is moving quickly along! We have a few more things to purchase until it's complete, and I may post some updates soon...but I'm not ready, yet! I was thinking about accessories for our dresser & nightstands, though. It occured to me that I may need some of these to add to my cute collection of photography/fashion books and Jonathan Adler reads...

Seriously, WWMM do?

And of course, Mr. McDreamerson himself...

Currently reading, however...

All found on Amazon

Informative, yes. But not so cute.

I believe...

Every woman should own a little Chanel...

(my sweet scarf, thrifted this weekend!)

As of today...

 The master bedroom walls have been painted (Thanks to the best men in my life)...

 This has been ordered...

 A few accessories have been purchased...

I've officially given the husband's trusty ol' trash can the boot...

And it's only taken us 9 months!!

Next up : Lamps, cowhide rug, prints to be framed & drapes!

I'm sad to announce our wedding bench suffered a major accident today when it flipped out of my dad's truck, breaking in several pieces on it's way up to come live with us.  We're sending it back with him for an emergency repair :(

Maybe by our 1 year anniversary, we'll have everything complete. The ball is rolling, folks. AMEN!
