1. Favorite Wedding of the Week: Pennsylvania Wedding by 6 Degrees of Celebration – This wedding has all the simple touches that I like to see, but what really makes it stand out is its gorgeous color scheme. This is a great example of an autumnal color palette that is emphasized just the right amount. Also, how perfect is the photo above? Tastefully and beautifully done. Found via Style Me Pretty.
2. Earthy Spring Bouquet – I get so tired of seeing only pastels for spring, when that isn’t really what’s surrounding us outside. This earthy bouquet, created and beautifully photographed at Design*Sponge, is a refreshing dose of mossy greens and the richer tones of spring.
I know it’s a week past Valentine’s Day, but the idea of pops of red in a wedding combined with subtle heart decorations has just been sticking in my head lately. Inspired by this Heart ArrowWedding Invitation from Pink Dot Press is an inspiration board full of love that would make a wedding speak volumes.

2. Favorite Wedding of the Week: Virginia Vineyard Wedding – This dreamlike wedding, featured at Ruffled, really succeeded in creating an ethereal vibe. I love the faded quality of the photographs, and the use of whites and pastels against bright bursts of color. -Allison
3. This gorgeous shoot of the musical duo snowbirds from Live It Out Photo is probably my favorite thing I’ve seen this week. The backdrop for the shoot–with all sorts of intricate grey structures–is stunning, and the couple photographs so beautifully together. Totally inspiring! -Allison
4. While this Breakfast Brunch may have been for a one year old’s birthday party, I was instantly smitten with the idea of stacks of pancakes with candles, a cereal bar, and a funny but sweet take on bacon and eggs to celebrate anyone’s big day. Seen on The Sweetest Occasion, this little party made my day. -Vanessa
5. In this age of online communication, the art of handwriting has quickly disappeared, and I’ll be the first to admit my handwriting is nothing to be envious of. However, this post from David Lebovitz entitled “French Handwriting” has left me with some hope that in some parts of the world, the art of handwriting and letter writing is still alive and well. The continuation of this talent is somehow comforting and has me thinking about how I can improve that communication skill. -Vanessa
The idea of keeping your coins within a fortune cookie is the best idea I’ve heard in a long time; imagine how much luck it could bring! This adorable purse from Diana Eng is the perfect size and completely one of a kind.
I love these adorable homemade heart pockets from Design*Sponge. It’s the perfect after-Valentines day craft, and I like to feature finds you can make yourself every once in a while, instead of always focusing on what you can buy! Go read the post here; the sentiment is sweet as well.
With Valentine’s Day just yesterday, it’s inevitable that love is on everyone’s mind. I’m not a big fan of the cheesiness of the holiday, but absolutely adore some of the witty takes on Valentine’s Day that I’ve been seeing more and more. When I found this I Love EweValentine’s Holiday Card designed by Great Arrow Graphics, I thought it was perfect! Sweet, sassy, and with just the right amount of love, it’s even cuter when paired with an actual photo of some friendly sheep.
1. Messy Side Ponytail: Perfecting the look of being effortlessly cute while having just rolled out of bed is actually quite a process! It has never looked cuter, more chic, or been easier than this Side Ponytail seen over on A Cup of Jo.
