Sleep = Fun (the way it should be)

16 Sep

You can bet your bottom dollar that when this baby boy is old enough to sleep in a big boy bed, he will have one that he will love to be in (and one i wouldn’t mind curling up with him in as well).

Here are a few beds that are at the top of my dream list:

1 Book Bed …Im thinking that with some some brainstorming and a few tools this can be a fun dyi.

This is not your grandmother’s doily!

13 Sep

The doily has really been trying to make a comeback for sometime now as it’s one of those things people either love or hate. It’s been made fun of a lot and even transformed into some industrial ragged versions (which were never popular), but it’s just now that Ive noticed its really making it’s own new fresh debut. Which i think is fabu as im a total fan!

When I first think of doilies it’s almost like I can smell that old musty scent only a (but not all) grand mothers house can smell like. We all know what im talking about.  But if your like me, the sight of a doily also has that instant feel of warmth and love- a simple textured miniature throw that can soften just about anything.

I simply cant resist these uber-feminine flash backs.

 

1 ‘punk doily’ available at notonthehighstreet.com.

2 ‘romantic peach and vintage doily pillow’ by squirrelonaledgetop over at etsy.

3 ‘lace tea set’ was also found on notonthehighstreet.com. Real doilies were used to make these!

4 ‘lace lamp’ …Put those old doilies that you inherited from your grandmother to good use! Hit up here for easy diy instructions.

5 ‘square doily clock’ by uncommon. The doily makes a cool debut as a square AND lets you know that you are those five minutes late for work.

Oh snap!

8 Sep

Combining two very significant loves in my life. Sugar and a camera.

Available over at etsy for 35 smacks. Im wondering how difficult it would be to diy?

Real Wedding: Barbie & Ken

2 Sep

I heard this couple finally tied the knot so I went hunting for the images. Ive spent more weekends than Id like to count shooting weddings, so I can really appreciate the work Beatrice de Guigne put into shooting these nuptials.

Beatrice told Rock n Roll Bride: “Barbie & Ken were married at Faraway Castle, in Plasticity. The bride bought her dress from The Fairy Godmother shop and her shoes from the Cinderella Store. The groom wore a suit from The Prince Charming Emporium. The couple met more than 50 years ago (yes I know they look young). Barbie was tired of waiting so she asked Ken to get married.”
