Taking a little inspirational vaca...

Well, if the volcano permits it, I am officially out of the office starting tomorrow. Please note that my Etsy shop is currently closed, but it will reopen and I will respond to all emails and convos beginning on Wednesday, May 5.

Unless, of course, I end up stranded in Europe. I could certainly think of worse problems to have... Hope everyone has a great couple of weeks! =)

Personalized stationery for a good friend.

Last week, I created some personalized stationery on my little press for a good friend. Looking forward to hearing how she likes it, and to eventually listing custom pieces like this in the shop. =)

Places to find color inspiration.

If you are having a hard time deciding on or putting together a color palette for your big day, there are lots of places to turn for inspiration. As I mentioned earlier in the week, the Pantone website is a great place to start. There are many posts on this blog that are tagged "color combinations" to check out, as well. Otherwise, visit any or all of these beautiful blogs for hundreds of great ideas:
Hope you have a fab weekend! Thanks for dropping by. =)

Forecasted fall colors.

Since I shared a few of this year's spring colors on Monday, I thought I'd give you a glimpse of some forecasted fall colors for 2010 (as predicted by Pantone). You can see that a few of the same shades from spring appear here, as well, so I guess it's a good year for coral and lavender (although not necessarily together). Accompanying these swatches are several Simple Silhouettes dresses. I adore their collection and the newest additions are delightful as ever.

This year's spring color swatches.

With spring in full swing, there is color everywhere I look lately. The sky is bluer, the trees are blooming and flowers are peeking out from their wintery beds. Glancing at J.Crew's current wedding collection, I happened to notice that many of Pantone's forecasted spring colors are in the mix. I'm not usually a purple lover, but those shoes are certainly calling me. Be sure to check back on Wednesday because I'm planning on exploring color a bit more this week...

You are here.

Since it's been such a busy week, I think I'll start fresh with blogging on Monday. In the meantime, how great is this rug from Anthropologie? I love its bright, happy colors and paint-by-number theme. Happy weekend!

A pear-inspired centerpiece.

In case you haven't noticed, I'm a bit off the grid at the moment because my in-laws are in town. We all celebrated Easter with a big family meal yesterday. I finally had a reason to use my very pear-y Orla Kiely tablecloth and added a few bunny-filled jars (thank you, Martha!) with pear jelly beans inside. The best part: my nephew got to eat the centerpiece afterwards. Does it get any better than that? I'll be back later in the week...

Positively dreamy.

I'm super excited to be leaving for a much needed vaca in a few weeks. Guess where I'm going? Anyone have leads on memorable meals or must-sees for me?

These dreamy images were taken by photographer Irene Suchocki, and can be found in her Etsy shop. Aren't they incredible?
