This watercolor artist is enchanting!

Dimdi on Etsy can create whatever custom painting you'd like.

The first few three would be perfect in a woodland themed nursery.

gratitude project #1

I am currently half way through a book that is challenging me.
I realized the majority of my posts are very "want focused" and although it's fun to look at things that you don't have, you need to take time to be grateful.
Here are a few things that I am thankful for.
 My wonderful husband.
 My sweet friend Lauren
 My milk glass plate that reminds me of my great grandmother everytime I see it.
Birds outside my window

down will come baby...

In honor of my dear friend who is expecting, I was inspired to do a baby post.

One thing I would love to do is a photo shoot inspired by

 Aviator hat and cute bottoms
Plenty of balloons

I have seen a lot of photos of newborns and the best and most reoccuring theme is:

Keep It Simple

Have fun with it!
 Do any of you have any photoshoot ideas for newborns?

Lovely Pansies

I love pansies!

Alan will bring them home all the time, so that I can press them in a book.

Above there are two pansy inspired accessories, and then some edible pansy ideas.

Pansies in ice cubes or sugared onto cookies are beautiful yet edible.

office appropriate

One of my favorite shows is NBC's "The Office".

 I feel like the ladies are constantly so bland in their attire,
that I decided to outfit them with my personal favorite dress website... MODCLOTH.

favorite subject

My favorite person to take pictures of is my sweet little cousin Dakota Rayne.
She has such childlike joy that I can't help but try to capture it.
We played out on the trampoline and she sure loves the camera.

Although this is not a color I would normally pull from the rack, it is so refeshingly beautiful.
I'm starting to see it everywhere now!

This dress is from the ever reliable MODCLOTH and would be nice to wear to an outdoor wedding.
I have seen so many lovely girls wearing this on their nails as they
 strum them on the countertop at the cafe and I love it!

This color brings you back to another time.
Or you can decorate your home with it

A beautiful shade and can be used anywhere.
I hope you can find a way to incorporate this into your style this summer as well.
