Recently I was introduced to Gardenhouse via the lovely Mrs. Lilien. Click on both links to be flodded with truly gorgeous inspiration.

hooray for sun!

With today's beautiful weather my sundress matched with silver ruffle shoes is a definite must :)

{silver shoes: Payless, purple sundress: Khols, red & white striped fabric: Walmart}

I found this dress on clearance for only $3. What luck! If fit me pretty well but the bottom half was a bit too short and full for my taste. (My mother is probably going to gasp when she reads this next part ... not being a talented seamstress I usually make her do the dirty work.) So I added this the red and white striped fabric to the bottom and took it in about three inches on both sides. Voila! I must admit I'm lookin' pretty stylin' today ;)

It's raining today ... again. Ah, fiddlesticks! Perhaps I should purchase a snazzy umbrella (or a "lell-la," as my little guy calls it) so I won't mind this never-ending crummy weather.

Oh ... and maybe some cute rain boots too ;)

vintage inspired

I'm wild about these vintage inspired phones, refrigerators and stoves ...

... but this bike is my favorite. My sweetheart surprised me with my very own for Mother's Day! He said it looked like me so apparently I am super cute ;)

Sunday evening we took our little guy for a family bike ride on a park trail near our house to try her out. She rides like a dream :)

I am considering a little wire basket on the front which would be very handy for carrying picnic lunches ... and would look fabulous too. Any thoughts?

yes please

Have you checked out Scarfu's clothing yet? Yum yum yum!

I'm so obsessed with ruffles, buckles and buttons as of late.

perfectly purple flower brooch

I'm so excited to share my newest treasure with you!

Spotted at Walmart (of all places) for $2! Once in the parking lot, I pinned it to my jacket lickety split :)
