Can we just stop and talk about my sick obsession with vintage bottles. I grew up in a 200+ old house and every once and awhile we would unearth a treasure in our backyard so they totally remind me of my childhood home. Here are just a few images I have been collecting over the past few months.

Here is a little inspiration board for myself. I like to organize my tumblr photos into cohesive boards. I’m still trying to figure out how I’m going to bring this one to life in July for our wedding. Perhaps a fog machine?

    I think you might be the new reining inspiration board queen. This one makes my heart flutter and I completely want to live inside the little blossoms board.

This Spring I keep thinking of little blossoms. My mind has been wandering to my trip to San Francisco last year with my sister and all the cherry blossoms. And my favorite color to pair with cherry blossom pink? Definitely mint. Just like my all time favorite Sarah Seven dress!

Because Kelly Cutrone told me that you are nothing if you don’t have a web presence, I have created a temporary website while my fancy schmany website is being built. I actually rather like this one and am proud that I made it all by myself. Of course, wix helped. I love wix. We made our wedding website through wix too and it was amazing. They are always adding new fonts and backgrounds and fun flash-y stuff! They should give me a free upgrade for loving them so much (hint hint).

I have a hard time going to the farmer’s market and not buying flowers. I only spent $10 and got a bunch of peach and white ranunculus, tulips and eucalyptus. Then I took my puppy for a walk through the alleys in our neighborhood and gathered some jasmine vines and other greens.

    There's something about ranunculus that makes my heart flutter …ReplyCancel

I’m kind of obsessed with floral still life paintings right now. Especially the work of Arnoldus Bloemer (appropriate name, no?) and Cornelis de Heem. They are completely different from one another but I love Bloemer’s vibrant colors and Heem’s contrasts against the black backdrops.
A still life of peonies, roses, honeysuckle, poppies, a crown imperial, rhododendrons and other flowers in a terracotta urn on a ledge by Arnoldus Bloemer.
