Golden Summer

Monday, September 13th, 2010

Photos from a recent walk through the local Mass Audubon sanctuary.  The cooler temperatures are making it feel like fall, but the oranges, reds, and bright yellows haven’t arrived just yet.  We did notice however that the bright greens of summer have started fading into a lovely golden color.

Sweet & Spicy Bridal Shower

Friday, September 10th, 2010

Love the calligraphy, invitation, and printed materials for this “sweet & spicy” bridal shower (found via 100 Layer Cake).  Calligraphy by Love, Jenna and invitations printed by Gus & Ruby Letterpress.

PS: Love this image from Jenna’s blog about how she mixes custom ink colors for every job!

French Lace Veil

Thursday, September 9th, 2010

I am such a sucker for veils, I wish there were opportunities in everyday life to wear them (besides your wedding day).  I had a hard time settling on my own wedding veil, but if I saw this one while I was making up my mind it definitely would’ve given me a hard time deciding.  LOVE this old fashioned veil!  The dress is gorgeous as well.  What a gorgeous French bride.

Geninne’s New Workspace

Wednesday, September 8th, 2010

Yes, I just did a post on Geninne yesterday, but her new workspace (look at the view from her desk!) is too amazing to pass up.  Her inspiration wall is a good reminder to me that it’s been about 6 months or so since I’ve updated mine… gotta work on that this week.

Check out more images of her new house here on her Flickr.

A to Z of Birds

Tuesday, September 7th, 2010

Seriously lusting a print of the uber-talented Geninne’s A to Z of Birds piece.  A-m-a-z-i-n-g!  Check out all her fine work for sale in her Etsy shop.

Labor Day Weekend

Friday, September 3rd, 2010

I am holding onto summer with my teeth and fists… I am NOT ready for it to be over yet.  If only I could make it last for just one more month!  Yes, we’re still having summer weather (it’s been in the mid to high 90′s this week) but I am just not ready for fall yet.  As much as I love autumn, it can wait.  Unfortunately I’m working the entire Labor Day weekend, but I hope to sneak in some relaxing with good books and a get together with some of the favorite people in my life.

I hope whatever your plans on for this weekend (whether or not you’re celebrating Labor Day weekend) you are enjoying the slow fade of the summer!

Peach Shortbread

Thursday, September 2nd, 2010

With peaches in peak season right now, this shortbread is looking like a delicious way to use some up after peach picking.  How can you go wrong with shortbread?
