{bloom} shower invites

I've been busy with some great invitation jobs! We threw a pretty garden-inspired baby shower for our good friend last weekend - the invitations I made were a mix of grassy greens and pale peach, then wrapped in garden twine; they seemed to fit the day just right. images: front + back

{ultimate} farmtown dining

Wait - did somebody say fried pies?? Yes...but I have yet to try one. You'd think this gem-of a-place jumped right off the pages of Sunset magazine, it's really that cute. I've come to love our early Sunday mornings at the Freemont Diner. It's the ultimate in small town organic-farm style breakfasts - think flakey bisquits, the tastiest ricotta pancakes, and homemade fennel sausage. It's also just about the best backdrop for adorable family photos. And they don't skimp on personal touches - the owner filled the bud vases with fresh wildflowers from the garden and delivered freshly picked slices of summer melons to each table. If you find yourself in Sonoma - it's a must!

pretty little {morsels}

These gorgeously designed cookies made by better bit of butter may just be too pretty to eat...wait, who am I kidding, I'd polish one of these right off without regret (but I'd probably take a picture first!).

fantasy {in the} garden

Like a scene straight out of Midnight in the Garden of Good & Evil, these images capture the ultimate in garden fantasy. I'd love to get lost in those weeping willows with a good book!

{pretty little} pockets

It's become painfully clear lately that I am a saver - sure, a picky saver, but nonetheless, a saver of all cool things big & small. If only I had a way to consistently display these fun findings, they wouldn't end up in tiny piles clustered in desk drawer corners, nightstand drawers and of course, the "to be filed" file. These pocket pages could make organizing both vacation shells & concert stubs a snap!

everything {in it's place}

Lately we've been in purge mode around here, and I love every minute of it. Really. There's something to be said for everything having it's place and for the things that don't...well, buh-bye! I like these tag-storage ideas, it could be clutter city inside but you'd never know from the outside. image via living etc.

chunky heels {for all!}

Pretty much any shoe with a chunky wood wedge is enough to make me giddy, but add a pop of orange and you may need to physically remove them from my feet before bedtime. They're also a total steal...
