I Heart Office Supplies!

I am loving the adorable products by GALISON, who sells pretty much any office supply you can think of. The prints are so fun and cute, they can dress up any desk or small area where they're most needed. They also sell to many different companies such as Anthropologie, Liz Claiborne, Real Simple, and Target. I can't remember where I first saw their products, but I loved them so much I wrote down the name! I'm such a sucker for office any kind of office supply. Also, keep updated by visiting their blog, The Galiwag, as well!

Jane Cumberbatch

Today I was out and about getting some last minute things before I leave for Savannah, and made a run in to T.J. Maxx (you never know what you'll find!) I was looking at different books they had setting out and came across a book called Decorating Easy, by Jane Cumberbatch. The images of the interiors inside the book were so beautiful and contained many lovely little DIY projects and ideas. I thought, "Wow, I really need to look her up!" Many of you might have already heard of her, but those who haven't like myself, I am happy to enlighten you!

Jane is an interior decorator, and has been a decorating editor, journalist, and style director of various leading publications, one being Elle Decoration. Jane's style consists of her own little "ingredients" and reflects a very simple and natural feel. You can check out the range of simple products she is currently developing at her Pure Style website. You can also visit her blog, PureBlog, which is so refreshing with gorgeous images. Recently, Elle Decoration has voted her blog one of the best style blogs on the web. Very impressive.

Double Takes at Anthropologie

I went to Huntsville today and of course had to go by Anthropologie as usual! Anthropologie in Huntsville is located in the Bridge Street town center. It's known for it's luscious grass wall installation (186 square meters), one of the largest in North America! I hope you enjoy viewing a few things that caught my eye today in the store. Believe me, there was much more I looked at, but it would make this post a heck of a long one if I posted it all!

I always LOVE going to look at the kitchen accessories.

I saw this little cardigan and wanted it so bad! It's so fun and cute!

These necklaces are absolutely gorgeous! The last time I went they had a nice selection, but these were not there yet. I picked both of them up and daydreamed about wearing them out. If only. I think these would both look wonderful as wedding accessories.

Weekend Photos

Okay everyone! So here are a handful of the photos I took this past weekend of my little cousins. Aren't they precious? These are only a few of my favorites.They were taken at a lot in Killen, Alabama. Oh, the life of country living! You can check out more on my Flickr page.

What would YOUR Anthropologie Room look like?

Hey everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! The photoshoot went really well this weekend and I'm adding photos to Flickr as I type! When they are done, I'll be sure to post some. I want to go ahead and give you guys a heads up about what my posting is going to be like for the next two weeks....scattered. I have less than 10 days before I go back to good ole Savannah, and I'm in the process of getting things together and figuring out what I need to pack, so It's going to start getting hectic around here. Anyways, I had to get a dose of Anthropologie today online, and I love this room!! I'm actually going to Anthropologie tomorrow in Huntsville, so I'll let you know what catches my eye, because something always does!

I love the juxtaposition of this room. The elegent flow of the bow tie bed versus the rustic features in the accessories reflects the differences between the hard and soft elements in the room, and I love how these elements marry perfectly. I added the curtains because I think they would be a nice touch in the back. What do you guys think? What would YOUR Anthropologie room look like? If you have absolutely nothing to do, it's fun to put together different pieces/images together to create and imagine what your own dream room would look like!

Muddy's Bake Shop

Today my family and I went to drop my little brother off for college. Oh how they grow so fast! While we were there, we stopped by a cupcake shop that a friend told us about to liven up our spirits. Muddy's Bake Shop (Memphis,TN) is the cutest shop ever, and their little treats are divine! Not only do they taste good, but they are also good for you in that the milk is hormone free, and the eggs are cage free. Can it get any better than that? Everyone there is so fun, and the owner, Kat, is such a joy to be around. You can definitely tell she loves what she does.

So sweet! There was a little party going on even when I walked in! I'm guessing they have them often. I want one!
They also sell these adorable little items!

Loss for words... and Inspiration

I'm stuck today. Lost for inspiration. My mind is as blank as a piece of computer paper waiting to be printed, or typed on. I can't stand the days I have creative blocks, but I do have some good news. I've been working on a website to link to this one for my portfolio, and I'm almost done, thank goodness. I've said it over and over again, but I didn't think it would give me as much trouble as it has. Anyways, I'm almost there! Lack of sleep could be my problem. Let's hope tomorrow my creative juices will flow and I'll be inspired by everything in sight!

{Click images to view on Etsy}

So I was again, surfing Etsy and came across some beautiful illustrative work by gretchenmist, from Melborne, Australia. Her work ranges from printing, collaging, mixed media painting, and drawing, to pendants and brooches. Her work is fun, playful, abstract, and perfect for framing in your home. You can also visit her blog . Here are a few of my favorite fun prints by her. Aren't these adorable?
