Every time I see a porcelain ring dish from Paloma’s Nest, I kick myself for not using one at our wedding. Have you seen them? What a special object and memento from such a special day! Every single piece is hand crafted one at a time with such care: they are really meant to be heirlooms, something special your daughter might use some day at her own wedding, and your granddaughter.

Paloma’s Nest is not only home to the Original Ring Bearer Bowl, they also make a number of other handcrafted wedding pretties, including some brand new items like custom cufflinks and boutonniere pins. I love the simplicity of each piece – the clean lines and bold text – all of them designed by Caroline Colom Vasquez and her husband, Jose, and made in their Austin, Texas studio. Here are a few favorites…

R: custom Ring Bearer Bowl with blooming branch

R: small inscribed cufflinks

R: stamped monogram pin

L: hanging heart picture ornament
R: Bouquet Text Tiles

So many special things to include in your wedding, and to have as a keepsake. Which one is your favorite? From accessories for the guys to bridal party gifts, there’s a lot to love! I think since we missed our chance to use a Ring Bearer Bowl, I might have to get one of those heart frame ornaments instead…

See lots more from Paloma’s Nest over on their brand new website, and if you happen to be in Austin, check out their flagship store which opens this summer!

A classic New England wedding for your Saturday! Bethany and Eric were wed at the groom’s parents’ home, in Massachusetts: “After a six month renovation, the house was ready just days before our wedding!” says the bride.

One of Bethany’s favorite parts of the day? “When Eric and his four brothers, all very musically talented, sung ‘1,2,3,4’ by the Plain White T’s a capella. They set the tone for a very joyful day.”

A green and white palette reflected the garden venue: garden roses, sweet peas, lisianthus, tulips and hydrangea. In addition to flowers, centerpieces incorporated small birds nests, as well as pots of ivy and ferns, small candles wrapped with birch bark, and larger candelabras for a more formal touch.

Congratulations Bethany and Eric!

Hi lovely friends! This weekend my honey and I are headed East for a friend’s wedding, where we get to catch up with some of our Teach for America friends and wear sparkly shoes (well, I’m wearing sparkly shoes; I think Ryan’s probably wearing the gorgeous man shoes he wore at our wedding). This is the first wedding we’ll attend since our own wedding, and I’m a little curious to see if it will be different – like, will I notice different things? Will I get more emotional at the ceremony? Thoughts? Anyway, I can’t wait to see my friends and celebrate with them. In sparkly shoes.

Okay, so before I sign off, here are some fun links for you from around the web!

Do I want the blue pointy shoes, or the gold pointy shoes? Both?

Or how about these in hot pink?

Calligraphy and clay – better together.

Watercolor and ceramics – better together, too!

A modern day love note.

Okay, it’s not exactly cheap, but it’s a more affordable version of the bag I love, via Sacramento Street.

$12 sunglasses look good.

This loose bunch of flowers makes my day.

How about these invites for a destination wedding?

Mad Men art portraits – dig these.

Congrats to Elizabeth Anne Designs on the new look!

Really, Jordan? Your paper just keeps getting better and better!

Have a happy weekend folks!
