Spring Centerpiece

I put together this centerpiece for a little get-together I was having. It's pretty simple...vintage medicine bottles, whatever greenery is in your yard at the moment, and clear votive holders. Easy-peasy.

Etsy Shop: Up in the Air Somewhere

In looking for handmade ceramics online, I came across the Etsy shop Up in the Air Somewhere. They have a lovely collection of hand painted paper-maché products at affordable prices. These bowls would be a perfect ring holder on your dresser or great for bringing color to your kitchen counter tops.

Need Supply Co.

I saw Need Supply Co. on Sally Jane Vintage. I usually don't do much boutique shopping (too expensive). But as I've gotten older, I've told myself that I need to start buying clothes that I really love, keeping the hand-me-downs in my closet to a minimum, and that these clothes need to actually fit me so my sewing pile isn't completely out of control. Need Supply Co. has a well curated selection of clothing that is surprisingly affordable. Here are a couple of my favorites:

Chiffon Tie Top  & Blooming Lace Top  both $38

Laser Tap Shorts $68 & Edie Shorts $42

Tie Back Porch Dress $58 & Long Skirt $38

About A Girl Dress $220(ok, not really affordable, but oh-so-pretty) & Woven Shoulder Dress $60

A Room with a View

Hair is terribly personal, a tangle of mysterious prejudices.  ~Shana Alexander

When I saw the picture above, I immediately thought of Helena Bonham Carter's undone (in a good way) hair in A Room with a View. By the way, if you haven't seen this movie, you really should, it's like instant happiness...really.
