This was one of those weeks that just flew by – I can’t believe how quickly summer is approaching! What are your weekend plans? Hubby and I will be doing some delayed (and much needed) Spring Cleaning, and I’m going to try and figure out how to style my new short hair cut. I’ve had short hair before, but I forget that every time I chop it all off, it takes a week or so for me to get the styling just right. Even though I like having short hair, I invariably start growing it out again almost immediately. Don’t ask me why I do this, because I have no idea. Hair identity crisis maybe?

Have a happy weekend, lovelies, and of course some links for your Friday…

This is why I miss living in a rural place.

DIY doily-edged mirror – so simple!

Paper invitations are much more my style, but if you’re going to send an email invite, it should be as cute as Mr Boddington’s Nephew, via Hip Hip Hooray.

Fun on a stick (photo booth props).

Congratulations to the Johnson family on their newest addition!

Happy flower font.

Wouldn’t you just die to see a Tim Walker wedding?

I want to have more tea parties, and I’ll serve little sandwiches like this.

An ode to chambray.

Remember this wedding board? Dauphine Press created an invite using it as inspiration.

Missing my little Mississippi town these last few weeks, and thinking of all my friends still in the Delta.

This weekend is my 10 year high school reunion – should be interesting. I went to a very small high school, so I’m wondering how many people will be there. Hmm, also not sure what I should wear… suggestions? What are y’all doing this weekend?

And some fun links for you…

Snippet & Ink is groom approved!

I’d like this gorgeous dress in my closet just so I could look at it.

Congrats to Amanda Bevington on the new website!

Home office is one of the projects at the top of my to do list. Finding inspiration at Rue.

Friends, I have a request of you. My nephew is going in for surgery today, which is just so scary. Actually, he’s probably taking it the best of any of us. He’s a sweetheart and a charmer, he loves to brush his auntie’s hair (I know – lucky auntie!), he loves his brothers, and he loves chocolate chip cookies almost as much as his mom does. Whatever you believe, or however you pray, I hope that you’ll keep him in mind today and in the weeks to come.

And because bubbles and laughing are always good for the body and soul…



Happy Mothers Day!

Since I’m writing this post Thursday evening, I don’t have anything yet to say about the royal wedding, but… did you watch it? Did you wake up early to watch it live, or record it for later? Did you have tea and crumpets and wear a fabulous hat? And what about this weekend, what are your plans?

Having a girls’ weekend for my friend Susie’s bachelorette celebration! She doesn’t know where we’re going, so I can’t give you details, but I can tell you it’s going to be a good time. Whenever the four of us get together, we pretty much can’t stop laughing, no matter where we are or what we’re doing.

What are you doing this weekend? Doing anything for Earth Day, or Easter, or Passover?

Loving this winter bride’s style.

Pretty dress with a pretty bow.

Pink ombre cake!

Eggs aren’t just for Easter – confetti game!

Terrariums go geometric.

How about a very unexpected something blue?

Looking forward to this year’s SF Decorator’s Showcase because of pretty things like this.

Impossible art ideas. I love how clever some people are.

It’s the rhubarb time of year. I prefer mine on its own, no strawberries.

Happy yellow convertible. Vintage of course.

And a happy yellow-dipped dress.


Have a happy weekend, lovelies!
