decorate in the round

Festive wreaths might just be my new favorite holiday decor. According to Martha, you can make a wreath out of just about anything!

I'd really like to incorporate a wreath or two into the wedding somehow... it'll probably go on the list of DIY projects.

many thanks

Thanksgiving may still be a week away, but I wanted to take a moment to share my sincere thanks for all the wonderful readers who follow along and for those who have left such sweet and encouraging comments. Sometimes I feel like what I'm blogging about isn't much, and I regret not being able to post more frequently lately, but it's really great to see that people enjoy reading what I put out there. I have so many ideas for this blog, and I hope to get better about committing to a more continuous posting routine--especially with all the wedding goodness there is to share! So I just wanted to say thank you for following, thank you for commenting, and thank you for reading my blog! :)

pottery barn + paisley

Pottery Barn is the name of the game today. Totally loving the colors of this new Sienna Paisley Duvet.

One thing I'm really excited about in this wedding planning process is the registry!! It's still a little ways off, but I might just have to register at Pottery Barn... :)

Pretty Shoe Tuesday

These shoes caught my eye on Net-A-Porter and at first glance I thought they looked kinda odd...
...until I looked at this view of them and saw that the pair spells out the word "Love"

Seriously, how fun!

Just a quick post to say how I'm a fan of the whole paper craftiness promoting the new J.Crew Gift Guide. Is it really already time to start Christmas shopping?

I've had to step away from my computer for a few days... I'll be starting a new job and am in the process of moving again! Once I get settled, it'll be back to regularly scheduled postings :)

Shana Faust

I enjoyed looking through the online portfolio of photo-stylist Shana Faust. Formerly an editor at Martha Stewart Weddings magazine, she has produced some marvelous feature stories and photos that provide picture-perfect inspiration.
