That England feeling…

22 Jun

We just got back from two weeks in England.  We took Noah to meet the family, went to a couple of weddings, and enjoyed summer in the sun.  I think England really is one of the most beautiful places you can be when the sun is shining.  All that rain makes everything so, so lush and green.

I think it’s having an effect on me.  My eye keeps catching on all these mad floral designs and I’ve got to have some of it for my casa.

Here’s an inspiration photo I found on flickr:

It’s available for purchase in her etsy shop along with many other gorgeous prints.

Also at etsy, I found this Kindle case and some pretty earrings:

Zara Home has some vivid floral items I love:

And for the full English effect, don’t forget the net curtains!  These are a pair I actually like from IKEA:

It’s not interiors, but have you seen Scarlett Johannson’s take on this trend?  Admittedly the woman would look gorgeous wearing an old sack but I think she pulls this look off perfectly.  The first is my favorite but I also love the cool blues and slightly mumsy look of the second photo:

Are you feeling it too?


Happy Monday!

10 Nov

This weekend was definitely feeling fall at last with gray skies and rain.  So nice!  In keeping with that fall feeling, here are a few shots of a gorgeous flower arrangement I was given last week to inspire you…



The colors are stunning and perfect for the season.  This arrangement came from the wedding of a friend of a friend, and I was the lucky recipient!  I hear the wedding was amazingly beautiful…judging from just this arrangement I have no doubt that it was.  I’m not sure who did the flowers but when I find out I will post a link.

The weather is back to being sunny but that’s fine by me as we have visitors in town from England for the week and I’m sure they will appreciate having a break from the rain!

Wishing you all a lovely Monday and a productive week!
