Easter Inspiration

With Easter coming this weekend, I am currently obsessed with pastels and brighter colors that complement pastels. These picture beauties should provide a little inspiration for your easter table … or maybe a makeover to a room in your home that needs a little love.

Loving lavender these days.  The color and the plant.

I could definitely find a place for that teapot in our home.

Absolutely adoring the pop of lime green.  Such a simplistic and gorgeous tablescape.

It’s amazing what a simple tablecloth, some colorful plates and antique glass will do.

Enjoy your time with family this weekend … eat a few deviled eggs and laugh a lot!  Maybe you’ll even find the prize egg!!  Oh man, I used to live to find that prize egg before my brother and cousins.

Three Potato Four :: Vintage Wedding

The ‘Oh Dear’ wedding shower went off without a hitch this weekend, so look forward to some sneak peek pictures this week! Now, we’re gearing up for the Vintage Fresh style shoot next weekend! So much design. So little time. But hey, that’s what makes it fun too. For now, here’s a new site for you to check out!

Three Potato Four is a great resource for those of you who love little vintage details but don’t have the time to scrounge through thrift stores and flea markets.

Plus, they have a wedding section! All those lovely vintage beauties you’ve been looking for – and in multiples! Antique keys. Cash register buttons … just imagine them as table numbers. Milk jugs. Vintage cans – What more could you ask for?!

Totally digging the bakery paper window advertisements..  Something you don’t see every day.  How fun would those be framed in a kitchen or on a dessert table?

This antique apothecary would be warmly welcomed into our home!  So unique and full of character.  It would be a great way to organize all of my crafting and sewing doo-dads.

Check out this cute anthro-style jewelry dish!  I can just see it on my dresser right now.  These pieces are only the beginning.. go take a gander for yourself! I would be happy with any or *all* of the things on their website.

All About Buttons :: Wedding Detail


Buttons are one of my favorite things. Absolute favorite. So, of course they were on of the details I wanted to include in our wedding. I came across button bouquets on etsy, and fell in love – but not with the price. So then , I thought “I could make those” … as I do with many things that turn into 30 hour projects … which this did. It was worth it though. I mean, just look at these beauties. Love.

My original thought was to have three of the button bouquets for the head table. After finishing two, I was done … it takes a lot of wire twisting and time to make the bouquets look full enough. So instead, I decided to make a pomander for my junior bridesmaid to carry. She was adorable – and I was able to make it in half the time! For one, I didn’t have to make the wire as long and the buttons stayed exactly where I stuck them in (as opposed to the bouquets that I had to secure together with floral tape). Regardless, I’m in love with them both!

Here’s a tutorial that walks you through twisting the buttons on wire. I also hot glued some of the buttons on, but it can get a little messy at times. Mixing in broaches or other jewelry accents was a nice way to fill some holes as well.

I also came across some other cute ideas to use buttons you might have lying around. Especially digging the button garland! Deepest gratitude to everyone who donated their buttons to our wedding!


Happy Monday!
