Spanish tile

How beautiful is the tile in this Argentine home? Le sigh.

A beautiful dress

I just can't get that champagne colored dress out of my mind... The design is thoughtful and detailed - just a really beautiful dress!

Thakoon

These hand-plisséd pieces from Thakoon's PreSpring 2010 collection are absolutely perfect. See more here.

Orange and Blue

How beautiful are these shades of peach, grey, orange and blue? Maybe I'll change my blog's name to naranja y azul?

Martha & Ash




Found here, I'm loving these coasters, this pillow and this dog bed (my favorite) from Etsy shop Martha & Ash.

A soft nursery

I love this soft and sweet nursery for a baby girl. That crib is so glamorous - and the teddy bears all lined up on the bookshelf are perfect.

Corporate Responsibility

According to this press release, UNIQLO is giving a lot to help those suffering in Japan. Call me a "millenial," but I am so much more inclined to support businesses when they give back. I also really appreciated LivingSocial's $5 for $10 deal to donate to the Red Cross.

UPDATE: Today Forever 21 is giving 100% of their proceeds to Japan relief!

Spring is almost here

Walking around my neighborhood this morning I noticed that the grass is green again! That means, soon the trees will grow leaves and flowers will bloom! Spring is almost here, my friends. Spring is almost here.

Alanna Cavanegh






Introduced to Alanna Cavanegh over at Ill Seen, Ill Said's "Where we blog from" series, I've come to love her silk screen prints. So talented. The photo below shows how she's combined some of her prints, other artists' prints and various flea market finds in her own home. I like how proportional she's organized it:

Hunter Gatherer

I love these handmade bows over at Etsy shop Hunter Gatherer, especially their creative names (clockwise from the top left): I am your pink sherbert; I am the start of a green spring; I am wild flowers in the summer; I am the bunch of flowers from a summer crush. They really are "quite lovely."

Squirrel Portraits

These portraits from Etsy shop berkley illustration were my Valentine's Day gift to Hunter this year. Since moving to DC, he's come to love all the squirrels running around our neighborhood. I think I did pretty well, if I do say so myself. Now if I could only decide where to hang them...

Leather couch envy

And the obsession continues...

The Coveteur - Hillary Kerr

A big fan of WhoWhatWear, I was excited to see that The Coveteur photographed Co-founder Hillary Kerr's closet. Her gushing about certain vintage finds and pieces she's bought over the years reminds me of how much fun I have building my own wardrobe:






Isn't her collection beautiful?

The Qaddafis and the Bluths

A big fan of Arrested Development, I can't stop laughing at this slideshow over at The New Republic comparing the Qaddafis and the Bluths. So good!

Thanks, Hannah!

A beautiful bedroom

I really can't get that headboard out of my head. Who made that? Who sleeps there? And the styling is perfect - all the rich tones and how everything is so low to the ground. What a beautiful bedroom! I think I'm obsessed.

Potato pizza

Potato pizza has always been one of my favorites, so when I saw this recipe from Stonesoup, I think I may have cheered out loud. I'm trying this later in the week - can't wait!

Twenty8Twelve

I love how body conscious Sienna and Savannah Miller's new Twenty8Twelve collection is. Pretty clothes that will look good on you? Yes, please.
