|I seriously want every single piece from ModCloth's Chickadee Delight collection. The sunshine gold color, the adorable bird and nest illustrations... sigh. I'm especially loving the laptop case, clutch, dinner and salad plates, and serving tray, shown above.|
|All of Alice Melvin's work is fairly amazing, but this "Make Your Own Mobile" kit is now officially on my must have list.|
|I'm sorry, but this Windhoek dishtowel is way too beautiful to use for drying dishes. I think it's much more suited to be a (gorgeous) wall hanging. I absolutely adore the vibrant colored print and detailed pickstitches.|
|The entire look on the left may just be my newest dream outfit, but it's the dress that's really got me. Sheer, flowing fabrics, maxi length, and an almost-ethereal hummingbird print? Yes, please.|
|I'm think that this "Mother Bird" limited edition print would look awfully nice in my living room or kitchen. Printed from an original papercut by Etsy Artist Elsita, it features the prettiest colors and details. Love.|
We have a birdhouse on our back porch, and the birds who live in it were chirping especially loudly this morning. I think they're happy that the sun is finally shining here in Chicago! When I woke up, I felt so grateful to get to listen to those little birds sing after such a long, cold winter. I started thinking about that magical quote by Rose Kennedy: "Birds sing after a storm; why shouldn’t people feel as free to delight in whatever remains to them?" Naturally, my daydreams on this Saturday morning have been filled with all things bird.
What are your weekend plans? My mom's coming to town for the afternoon today so we can go to the bookstore, drink mad amounts of coffee, and look through wedding magazines for inspiration. She has an amazing eye for design, so I'm really excited for her to help me make some decisions regarding what I'll be making for the invitations and decor.
