I've made the move--away from the blogger platform and onto my own domain--yay! So take this moment right now to update your feeds, readers, bookmarks, etc, etc...

With this move, I'm hoping to introduce sponsors and new features to my site. I've enjoyed the last year of blogging and the community that I've come to love and have been wanting to create a more permanent place enjoy!!

So go on, go ahead, update...update...update :)

Can I get one of these?

Found this photo via Style me Pretty by Christian Oth...can I please be confident enough to wear something this great to a wedding... :)

Cindy Tomczyk

Currently loving these prints by Cindy Tomczyk. She uses the gocco, letterpress, and digital media to bring to life her illustrations. Hmm...I might be eying a couple of her prints for Christmas's never too early!

Although I voted early and generally don't use my blog as a place to voice my political opinions--I couldn't help but share the cute cupcakes I made for the election day party we're having :) You have to give it to Obama's campaign for presenting a strong visual identity...yay graphic designers!


I spent my Halloween evening in Greensboro, NC at the Avetts Brother concert. Those who know me well, are fully aware that I am slightly obsessed with this band -- if you are not in that small percentage, then I highly recommend checking them out :)

Decorating Help: Renters

I totally related to this article I found on the domino mag website this morning..."Decorating for Renters." When you are not allowed to structurally change your living space the obstacles are a little more frustrating when it comes to decorating. Since I will probably be living in such a space a little while longer--I'm going to keep these ideas handy when we move.

1. Finding petite yet attractive bedroom furniture to maximize square footage
2. Kitchen Storage...we have this problem now. The folks at domino have put their silverware in a caddy and have hidden it behind the cute curtain and found a snazzy container for utensils. I'm also loving the exposed shelves with stacked dishes.3. (Another problem we currently have) Nasty laminate kitchen floors. Here they have covered the floors with flor tiles..perfect!
4. An oversized paper lantern to bring a little pop and dimension to the room (I have about 40 of these left over from the wedding!)
5. As a renter, I'm not sure how I feel about this project - but if you could find a small wall to wallpaper--that could really add a visual element to your space
6. Paint--of course (if you are allowed)!

Wiksten: Lovely Colors

I've broken down and unpacked my winter clothes -- too bad I don't have any colors like the above in my wardrobe. I love how rich the colors are in this Wiksten line.

Our Rehearsal Dinner Toast

At our rehearsal dinner we wanted to be sure and thank everyone who was near and dear to our hearts but we didn't want to leave anything/anyone out! So we came up with the brilliant idea of creating a video where we can collect all of our thoughts weeks in advance and cleverly express how we feel. To keep a few parts of our wedding intimate I have chose not to play the whole video on the blog but here are a few still shots to give you an idea--we think it was a big hit :)
