If I ever win the lottery, I’m going to hire my friend Champagne to redecorate my whole life- house, wardrobe, everything. I know I’ve linked to Crush Party before, but this blog never ceases to amaze me. Champagne just has exquisite taste. Checking Crush Party for new posts is one of the first things I do in the morning.
I’ve been trying to decide on a color to paint my beehives and I found it on Crush Party. Isn’t this blue just lovely?
I could go on and on and on about the great stuff I’ve found over there, but I’ll let you discover it yourself. Scrolling through the site is half the fun.
I’m a little hesitant to post a link to Tongue in Cheek Antiques, because the things I want are already always sold before I get there, and I don’t need the competition. But it wouldn’t be right to keep this much amazing to myself (BTW, this is another Crush Party find.) Corey Amaro lives in Paris and has spent the last 20 years scouring the Brocante (weekend antique markets) for precious little objects. She sells many of these on here site, updated frequently, but because everything is one-of-a-kind, you pretty much have to be there when she updates. All prices include shipping to anywhere in the world, and most of the things are small and inexpensive-ish. I especially love the vintage tea towels and other linens, but they are sold at the speed of light. Spend some time poking around over there and you too will begin stalking her site at all hours of the night and day.
This article about the controversy over babies in bars in Brooklyn made me laugh. It’s so Brooklyn somehow.
I am always on the lookout for great new blogs and I was thrilled to read Sustainable Suburbanite. The photography is amazing- AMAZING- and the fact that Kim has been hiding her light under a bushel is just so humble and sweet. I read the entire blog in one sitting and I bet you’ll do the same.
These Paper Cut Rolls knock. me. out. (This one’s for you, Jenny my love.)
Did everyone already see the article about Ysolda Teague in The Times? Lovely article about a super-talented designer and, I think, very positive for knitting generally.
I can’t remember which of you precious people sent me this link, but I am so glad you did. Close up shots of illustrations from a 1955 version of Mary Had a Little Lamb. Just wonderful.
I don’t need a barcode but these vanity barcode make me want one. Wonder if they could do a sheep?
As a child I loved tiny things, the smaller the better. So Little People, a tiny street art project, nearly killed me. The artist hand makes these itty bitty scenes and leaves them all over London on the streets to “fend for themselves”. The scale is just amazing to me.
I love this project so much that I really wanted to support the artist so I bought his book.
I would like to live in shirtdresses like this one this summer.
Love these coaster from Sesame Letterpress.
Stacked book wallpaper at Anthropologie.
A Friend of the Farm (FoF) recently honored me by telling me she wants to have her wedding at Juniper Moon Farm. I was so taken with the idea that I’ve been obsessively looking at wedding sites ever since. Here are some cool ideas that I love:
Leave it to Martha to think of putting lollipops in champagne. Beautiful and yummy.
Beautiful barn wedding at Once Wed. I love that they embraced the rain.
Lauren and Zack’s Wedding at Our Labor of Love is just perfect.
Another beautiful farm wedding, this one on Cape Cod. The photography, the decorations, it’s a just perfect.
There are a million ideas I will be stealing from this backyard wedding (also from Once Wed.)
Sorry for the mammoth post, but I needed to clear out my PSYWL folder. If you aren’t exhausted, feel free to share your favorite things in the comments.
