Friday Faves, March 4th

4 Mar

friday faves march 4th

1 :: I just recently discovered ASOS, one of the UK’s biggest online fashion retailers. They have a huge selection of clothing, and a great range of pricing. This Pleated Skirt Cute Collar Dress is only $44.83 and is a great way to kick off your spring wardrobe.

2 :: I feel like I’ve been snacking a lot lately–mostly on fruit and nuts, but I’d love to whip up these whole wheat goldfish crackers from Smitten Kitchen.

3 :: The States Motto Project has been featured on a number of design blogs, and it’s a great collaboration. I love checking in to see what new state mottos have been designed! Florida’s motto is fun and sunny, and I can’t wait to see how Michigan’s turns out.

4 :: It’s getting to be permanent sunglass season again. My sunglasses usually hail from Marshall’s (since I’m always losing them), but if I knew I’d keep them around, I’d love a pair of these vintage butterfly sunglasses from MODvintage.

5 :: It really doesn’t get any cuter than these tiny felted acorns from FeltJar. They’d be lovely in a little clay dish or just scattered on a mantle or centerpiece.

6 :: Brilliant! This DIY Chevron Rug only cost $36 ($30 for the IKEA rug) and packs a fun design punch. I wish my IKEA rug was white (and not brown) so I could try it…who knows, maybe with some darker colors, it would turn out just as swell.

Friday Faves – September 3rd

september 3rd friday faves

1 :: These paper people by Colt Bowden are so inspring! It really makes me want to try making some of my own. Paper, a sewing machine + some creativity make a great combination.

2 :: Speaking of paper people, these retro cutout scenes from Maxim Dalton are all kinds of fun. He’s got a variety of scenes, all brilliantly illustrated.

3 :: I’m in love with all the delicate vintage dresses at Flour Clothing. They’rea on pricier side, but for the condition and the quality they seem to be worth the extra dough (hah, see that’s funny cuz…oh, nevermind).

4 :: The season of tomatoes and basil is drawing to a close, but luckily I still have an abundance of both. This Catalan Tomato Bread from Erin is a lazy man’s bruschetta, but simple is good.

5 :: If you’ve recently acquired an abundance of new pens and pencils, store them in your own fabric-covered can. Natalie Jost does a quick and easy DIY tutorial over on her blog.

6 :: The newest issue of NEET magazine just came out, and as usual it’s packed with fun finds. Check it out–it’s free, and online only.

Friday Faves: Birthday Edition!

21 May

Friday Faves, Birthday Edition

Only 8 days until my birthday (Saturday, May 29th)! I thought I would do a birthday edition of Friday Faves this week–you know, so there’s plenty of time left if any wonderful people are looking for gift ideas. ;)

1 :: We already have the Wise Man print from Arian Armstrong and I would love to add this I Do print to our collection. Arian will customize the 8 x 10 with your wedding date, making it an anniversary reminder as well as a wonderful work of art.

2 :: I love meringue, so this Chocolate Raspberry Pavlova from Nigella Lawson is my idea of a grand birthday dessert. I’m actually making a version of it tonight (with chocolate mousse instead of the berries and cream) for our chocolate-themed Ladies’ Supper Club.

3 :: I’d really like to crochet these beautiful flowers and add a pin so I can embellish my shoulder bags and shirts.

4 :: This retro kitchen timer from Anthropologie has been on my wish list for a long time. The yellow makes me smile and I’d much rather turn this dial than punch numbers into a microwave.

5 ::  Since I don’t have any big party plans, my birthday dress would be fun, simple, and comfy. The Art Exhibition dress from ModCloth is (amazingly) still available in my size, so maybe I’ll get to wear it!

6 :: I saw this sweet vintage electric fan for sale on High Market Vintage a few days ago, but it’s since been sold. Luckily, I just found another one on eBay, so maybe one will work its way to my desk soon.

Happy Friday to you all!
