The lovely ladies at Sissy + Marley sent over the most amazing nursery! Baby Victoria’s nursery has the perfect amount of pink mixed with a gorgeous palette of neutrals and whites, with a touch of whimsy. I am in love!! Photography by Marco Ricca.

Fist of all, that wallpaper is just divine! I am madly in love with the “baby elephant walk” wallpaper by Jill Malek! I mean does it get any cuter?!

Everything from the artwork, to the books, to the doll is perfection don’t you think!?

Behind the Scenes {signature cocktail recipe}

0comments

At parties, and baby showers especially I really like to offer one signature cocktail giving guests the option of adding alcohol if they like. This keeps things simple, and keeps the guests that don’t drink in mind while still offering a great signature drink for all. For Emily’s baby shower we served a pale pink drink I dubbed “Baby’s blush tonic”. A mixture of pink lemonade, sparkling water and honey with a splash of gin for those that wanted a bit of a kick. The drinks were a huge hit!

We served the drinks in these great bottles, from Specialty Bottles.

The drinks were very simple to make and are absolutely delicous! I hope you enjoy! Cheers.

Mom Monday {The Stitch Farm}

This post is very dear to my heart. I am so proud to share with you this beautiful work from Barbara of The Stitch Farm, who also happens to be my amazing mother. The idea started for her when she wanted to make something for sweet Piper. She had a lot of old cashmere sweaters that were out of style, or had holes in them…and the idea for the Stitch Farm was born. She began by making these adorable bunnies, that are so soft and cuddly.

The collection has grown to include tiny piglets, gorgeous ballerina pillows made with vintage napkins. My personal favorite though is the Sentiment collection where you can send in your old sweater, or the sweater of a loved one, and she can custom create bunnies or pillows so you never have to part with that sweater.

These tiny piglets fit in the palm of your hand and are just about the cutest thing!

Her Signature Bunnies are so soft and adorable.

Her newest items are these gorgeous ballerina pillows made from vintage cashmere and vintage napkins! They would make the perfect addition to a little girls nursery or little girls room don’t you think!?

Ballerina-Pillows

One of my favorite things about her creations is that each one arrives in a handmade pouch made from upcycled clothing or bedding!

Valentines Day Inspirations…

I have to admit, my husband and I don’t make a huge deal about Valentines day. But we do use it as an excuse to have a date. We typically stay home, cook fancy food together, sip some bubbly and just relax. Here are some inspirations I have been thinking about for this year’s Valentine’s day.
