Well my goodness, I have been MIA since before Easter and with good reason. I just returned from a 10 day trip to England and it was amazing. It was my first time in Europe and I so loved it. Let me tell you, Americans have nothing on these gorgeous and sophisticated European people. They really know how to dress, eat and enjoy life. We spent 6 days in Manchester for a family wedding which was quaint, cool and quiet and then traveled to London. This may have included arrival to the busy city at rush hour with two Americans with lots of luggage attempting to take the underground in London. This was quite an introduction and may have been a little much for this first time traveler to London but we did make it through the experience.
I have so many other great photos but these are a few highlights. My favorite London Breakfast was entirely charming and included the best latte I have ever had in my life. Not kidding. It was called Piccolo Cafe and it was near Victoria Station. (I cannot find a link) I just loved the chalkboard walls and all the vintage elements here and the food was rustic and filling.
I saw so many gorgeous patterns and colors while visiting. The tea tins, the fashion, the flowers blooming, the gorgeous architecture were all a feast for the eyes. The best part is that we have family there and friends so a return trip is definitely in order.
Hello Friends, it has been a while since I have posted. First of all, Happy Easter to you! I have been busy with some exciting new items that will be coming soon. All I can say is keep you eyes peeled because I have an amazing new little collection coming out soon. I am also looking to have a few blogs host a giveaway for my new little collection so if you are interested, give me a shout. This collection is full of romantic vintage charm, pretty pastel colors and just pure loveliness. There will be a gift from my collection for all my giveaway hosts so let me know!!!
Easter this year isn't as it has been in the past. Due to an upcoming trip, we are not traveling to be with my family and our good friends that we usually spent Easter with when in town just moved away. Oh well. We will make the best of it.
We are heading to England in a month for a wedding and I couldn't be more excited. We will stay for 10 days. We will be in Manchester and London so if you have any suggestions for me in those two cities, I would much appreciate them. Boutiques, eateries, cafes, tea shops, vintage antique or craft stores, etc.
Happy Easter to you all. Hope you enjoy time with family and friends.

Last week, I booked a last minute trip to the Big Apple. We booked the trip on Tuesday and flew out on Sunday and flew back on Wednesday. This is not how I usually would plan for a trip but sometimes spontaneous decisions pay off. That was the case with this trip. It was such a quick trip but it was totally amazing. I barely had a moment to take everything in and it was time to leave. I cannot wait to go back sometime soon. Goodbye for now, NYC! Photos: Flying into NYC, my first glimpse. going down to Number 2, the Plaza Hotel. I took this for my sister and nieces and nephew as we all love Eloise. 3. Freezing cold and rain didn't keep us from seeing the sights. 4. Oh the food- amazing! pizza, NY hot dogs, kabobs and Shawarma, the bagels... 5. a last glimpse of the city on the way to the airport. Until next time!
Valentines is one of my favorite holidays. I love the colors, the sentiment, the chocolate and the flowers, the combination of red and pink. I took some time to put together a little vignette in my home tonight and create the little image you see above. I hope to share some more peeks of how I spend this month. Starting tomorrow: a crafting night with a kindred crafty girl, a glass of wine, and a movie. I will share what we come up with soon!
And here is how I welcomed Valentines day into my humble abode.
Hello and Happy 2013, now that its January 24th. Now that I am recovering from the holidays, and a very busy 2012, I have had some time to and spend some time being inspired on Pinterest-I am a huge Pinterest fan. I usually try to pin often because as much as I pin, there is still an amazing amount of good content that I have never seen each time I am on the site.
I was looking to do a lot of DIY for Christmas. That didn't really happen like I wanted it to but I did find something that I really want to try very soon because I feel like I could really make some fabulous things. I love the idea of getting some cheap white dinnerware, at the Dollar Tree or elsewhere and trying the below. The basic idea is to get a permanent sharpie, I would pick a metallic, and do a design on the plate or mug or dish and then put it in the oven, the details are in the links below. Is this something that you would try?
My whole Pinterest DIY board can be found here. I have some pretty fabulous stuff on there- it's worth a peek (in my humble opinion)!
PS I just realized that in my original title for this post (which has been modified) and in the photo above I spelled DIY wrong. the new term is DYI- didn't you know?
Merry Christmas Friends! I hope your holiday season is merry and bright! I am with family celebrating Christmas this year and looking forward to a week off from my 9-5 job. Hope your Christmas is full of time with people you love, hot cocoa or a glass of wine or two, and lots of lovely gifts.
