Brand We Love: Maileg

The Cat, my mom and I are spending a couple of days in Ventura. Yesterday we headed down to Main Street to do some thrifting and antiquing. I had no luck, but the Cat found a couple of cute things at the Buffalo Exchange, plus she got a new bathing suit since she went off and left her new one at home! (This happens every year. Maybe she does it on purpose? Crafty little devil.)
We popped into one of my favorite stores out here, Copperfield's, and found these ADORABLE little stuffed animals.  They have a home made feel to them, and the Cat really wanted the elephant.  (She is in love with elephants, as of late.) She settled on a bookmark that looks like a Persian rug, but maybe that little elephant is in her future.

Gorgeous Grey

Like the rest of the world, I've been in love with deep charcoal grey tones.  For that matter I love any shade of grey.  I am all about contrast, though.  I think it takes an unimportant space and makes it look far more special and dramatic.

Chic living - back to black

I could move right into any of these rooms or outdoor spaces!  I love how intensely modern and cozy they all feel. 
The wedding I was preparing for has come and gone and it was a success!  Like all events there were things that didn't get accomplished and things that didn't happen just like I might have hoped, but...it turned out gorgeous and when the bride cried when she saw her bouquet I was making her, well, let's just say that's all the reward I needed.

New Love: Maiedae Prints

Don't you just love social media?  I do.  Sometimes. I'll admit, I'm not very good at all of it.  I just can't seem to keep up with tweeting and pinning and instagramming and facebooking and all the rest.  But mostly just the tweeting.  Though I do like to jump on there when I'm in line somewhere, or waiting at the orthodontist's office forever.
And thank goodness for Twitter, because you can find fun new things on there, like these beautiful prints from Maiedae.


Aren't they fantastic?  You can find them all on the Maiedae website.
I can't believe it is already Friday! Any plans for the weekend?

Busy Day Outfit Inspiration

I am currently on vacation in Montana so that is my excuse for such a short post today.  Also, I didn't bring my own computer with me so I'm fighting with a borrowed one, ugh! 
This is a working vacation for me as I am working on projects for an upcoming wedding (fun work, right?)  that will take place next Saturday.


I think this outfit is pretty perfect for my busy days filled with projects and running around town.  Up here there are storms and rain on and off so it's great to have a scarf to throw on and even a light weight jacket. 
I want to thank Lori for pitching in to help me with posts while I have been so busy over here!
Have a wonderful day and I can't wait to show you all what I have been up to.

Inspiration: Mr. Kate

Happy Monday!  (It is Monday, right?  Sometimes a teacher on vacation tends to forget trivial things like the day of the week!)  I hope you had a fantastic weekend.  Mine was spent obsessively searching for a coffee table that I need to stop obsessing over.  And buying books, and watching Harry Potter, Arrested Development, and finally finishing Dexter (boo to the ending, by the way).  The weekend also consisted of my boyfriend winning a t.v. at a golf tournament and then giving it to the Cat to put in her room.  This is not going to happen, as she is not allowed to have a t.v. in her room, but it will be finding a home in the guest bedroom, where she can access it.  That's going to be a project, to put that in there, because the shape of the room doesn't make for the easiest furniture placement.  Luckily, I have a piece of furniture in mind to set the t.v. on, thanks to staying up too late last night and binge watching all the episodes of Mr. Kate's OMG We Bought a House.

Originally, this was a ratty old dresser they got at a thrift store.  It needed some work, and they worked it!  I love the two- tone coloring, and the rope pulls are a cute touch.
This little project is on my list, and I'd better hurry, cause the actual cat keeps trying to make the box the t.v. is in her new bed!
Oh, and if you haven't checked out OMG We Bought a House, it is really cute and fun to watch; they're new house is amazing!
