Button and fabric Bridal Bouquet

I ran across this gorgeous and unique bridal bouquet while searching for wedding inspiration this week. I love that it is not your typical bridal bouquet. It has a handmade personal feel to it that I think many brides are leaning towards these days. And it is a  keepsake from your wedding that you will be able to cherish forever. You Fascinate Me So is the designer behind this beautiful piece.

What do you think of this bouquet?

Fun FindsFun Finds - pink eyeglasses on my designed life

When I was a kid I wanted glasses so badly. I thought if I sat in front of the TV close enough it would cause me to need them. I was so excited when I was in 3rd grade and they told me I needed them. Woohoo! I did eventually find out that glasses aren’t exactly a picnic. But the fun part about them is the different styles you can choose from. I always wanted glasses like Lisa Loeb. She always made glasses look cool. And when these vintage specs caught my eye they kind of reminded me of her. The shop is Vintage Optical Shop and they sell tons of  these vintage frames. How fun it would be to have a pair of these for myself. As you’ve seen in earlier posts I just love vintage. And these are way cool. But which one to choose, that’s the hard part.

So tell me, what was your favorite (or least favorite) eyeglass trend? Any you are embarrassed to admit you wore? Share with us here. Till next time…

Color Inspiration… Spring Dress

Color Inspiration

Always Genevieve and Lucy Spring Dress

Happy Spring everyone! This is a photo of my little Lucy that I just love. I’ve wanted to share it for a long time, but didn’t know in what context to do so. Then the thought came to me, one of the reasons I love this photo (besides that it is my little Lulu) is because of the colors. This gave me a flash of inspiration, I should start a recurring post theme about color! So I will. I’m simply calling it “Color Inspiration…”. From time to time, I will share with you some hues that inspire. Maybe it will help give you a vision for a wedding, a baby nursery, a room you want to remodel, or just a break from your busy day. Let me know what you think. Hope you enjoy!

Which of these colors are you most drawn to? Your feedback could help me select some new colors for my stationery designs. Thanks for your help! Till next time…

Today’s Fun Find came to me in my weekly Etsy email. I saw this photo of this beautiful underpinning and just fell in love. Extra little touches like this are what get me excited. I think that is what makes life interesting, those extra little surprises. They may be small but they add so much. Giving life to something that may have seemed ordinary, expected or typical. So when I saw this underpinning I had to see where they came from and what other surprises they had in store. You can find them in the Etsy store Swank Underpinnings. So what do you think of these underpinnings?  Till next time…
