Well that's cute, isn't it?

A simple vase wrapped in a bit of black tulle and tied with a red cord. I love it! An inexpensive way to add flair to an ikea vase.

Jose Villa

Sigh... Jose Villa's blog is incredible. I get very stressed when I watch sports on TV, so I'm distracting myself by poking through some photographer blogs. I think I'll stop with this one and leave the sweet taste in my mouth.

So much inspiration.

(I love this long table amid the barrels at a vineyard.)
(Lace-wrapped pillar candles. Great idea!)

(And, seriously... how cute is that dog!?)
So much beauty.

Photo(s) of the day

I noticed these two photos on the Mi Belle Inc. blog today, and I just couldn't resist reposting. I'm having a chilly, rainy - and snowy! - day at home with my pooch today, so this is a fitting photo of the day.

(That says, "10 Reasons Why I should have been Best Man" and it was tied around the pups neck. Too cute.)

Seasonal proposal

A friend of mine from college proposed to his girlfriend recently. I noticed the proposal image on Facebook and just couldn't resist posting. I love it!

Yes, those ARE pumpkins!

Hmm, so it seems as though actress extraordinaire Gwyneth Paltrow has started her own Web site: Goop. It's unclear to me at this point all that it will contain, but I thought it was a beautiful layout, so I went ahead and signed up for the "newsletter". Low and behold, in my inbox this morning, a beautiful treat filled with yummy, healthy recipes.

Check it out if you are so inclined and see what you think? I'm excited to see what comes next!

Great Groosman idea

I'm always looking for great ideas for Groomsmen gifts. It's always harder to shop for a man, and that doesn't change when it's time to shop for a wedding. I came across this picture last night on A Bryan Photo, and I just thought, "Yes!" Brilliant, right?

Yay Leanimal

I was thrilled with tonight's results. Were you too?

And now we're moving on to the debate...

How will I ever decide?

It's going to be a busy TV night! Hope I get control of the remote.

Awesome greeting cards

I'd like to give credit where credit is due, but I can't, for the life of me, remember where I saw these today! But, they were too good not to pass on.

Check out Old Tom Foolery for "unsappy, uncrappy letterpress greetings." So clever! (And I love the Christmas cards too.)

A little inspiration

Speaking of Twigs & Honey, Myra provided a little inspiration to us for my friend's recent wedding. See picture below:

How easy was this to pull off? $2.99 feather from Michael's (seriously). A small square of netting from the fabric store. Three/four bobby pins. It was perfect, simple, and the bride was able to remove the birdcage and keep the feather for the reception!

Jocelyn + George

I am completely and totally in love with both this wedding and the photographs ... and the rockin' attire! Check out Tiny Water Photography for more incredible pics! Here are just a few of my favorites:

How about that Twigs & Honey shout out!?
