Todd's 30th Birthday

I just got this Postcard from my college friend Todd.
Best mail I've received in a loooooong time.

For me, nothing embodies summer more than homemade lemonade. This lemon juicer has been my best friend lately, and the best part is that I've trained my preschooler to do all the squeezing!

Did you know that there's an insane amount of lovely peacock-hair-ephemera out there?
I've had peacocks on the brain, and I've been seized upon with a desire to find a tasteful peacock-themed wedding or bridal shower to look at, and while I haven't quite succeeded, I've found tremendous potential.
If I just revealed that I'm insane, please keep it to yourself.

milk glass

I happily came to the realization today that there are entire etsy shops devoted to vintage milk glass.
Someday I intend to have quite the collection.

{Perfect} Peter Pan Party

This little party made it all over the interwebs back in spring. It couldn't help it, it was a perfect party. All other little parties will forever pale in comparison. If ever I didn't want to grow up.....

Layer Cake Shop

Speaking of parties, Layer Cake Shop recently opened with a site-load of perfect baking accoutrements. They have a sweet "ideas" feature coming soon!

Yellow Party

I loved this yellow party.
Gee, I wonder why?

Okay, actually that just brings back bad memories of how every job I delegated to someone else got screwed up. (Picking up balloons... forgot. Icing the cupcakes.... they looked like they'd been sat upon.... bad day.)

Bee party

The thing I love most about this bee party is that it wasn't just planned to look good, but to be fun too. Sometimes I forget that part, myself.

Birthday Party Week

There's an infinite amount of inspiration in the interwebs for fantastic children's parties. In fact it overwhelms me. The past 2 years our oldest has had big parties, but this year (this week!) I think his third birthday will be considerably simpler. Lots of reasons for that, but it makes me kind of sad. I'm a party-planning kind of girl.

So to compensate I'm sharing some of my favorite parties this week.

Exhibit A: Check out the birthday parties over at Shim and Sons. Lucky sons, that's what I say.

Marry go Round

Everybody loves Snippet and Ink.
Who needs a wedding in their future to appreciate the artistry of the inspiration board?
This is my favorite yet.

Dear Franka -

I want these in my size. And a beach cruiser to ride while wearing them.
For the time being I'll just daydream across your cool website. Thanks!

Lovely Lovely

This kitschy UK store that specializes in colored paper doilies has some fun finds mixed in with the randomness.

In a perfect world I wouldn't hesitate to dress my boys in linen.
Like the lovely lawn shorts at Neige.
Reminds me of reading North and South... comments about how "civilized" people would never wear cotton when they could wear linen.
If that's true we're in sad shape.

High Street Market

Dear me, they find such amazing things.
And I can't afford them.
But I still love the vintage section of etsy.

Summertime has me dreaming of a back porch or deck or any outdoor space where I could enjoy eating light summer fare. Someday, right? Well for my someday there's Fermob with fantastic designs for outdoor bistro seating in about a million different colors. Me likey.

Dash and Albert

I've had a "thing" for colorway stripes since I spotted them everywhere during my semester in London. These rugs by Dash and Albert make me all nostalgic for "flat" dwelling.

Lorrick has been getting universally favorable mentions all over the place. I like this one best. Plus they have a Yann Tiersen-esque site-track.
