baby shower love

The baby shower I planned and put on for my sister came and went last week, and oh it all came together so lovely! My inspiration for the whole party came from this lovely party. I only spent $5 on supplies for decorations...used what I had in my own stash and did some bargain/garage sale shopping. My sister doesn't know what she's having so I went with the white/cream color scheme. Since it was all white, everything had such a soft touch and to add to that, I had lullabies playing softly the whole time.

Now it's time to wait for that sweet baby to arrive, and I'm going to have a hard time waiting! I love being an auntie♥


daisy, daisy...♫

♪..give me your answer do...I'm half crazy, all for the love of you. ♫♪

Okay. so not really. I actually don't like daisies one bit. But they are soooo pretty to photograph! Plus they are also my mom's favorite flower, so I can't help but think of her every time I see one.

And they have a bit of yellow. I love to photograph anything yellow.


a little butterfly love

Remember that baby shower I'm planning? well, I've been working on this butterfly mobile for the past two days for it. Did a little research online on how to make them and went at it. I'm totally loving the way it turned out - very time consuming, but soooo worth it. I can't wait to see how it all turns out for the shower....( it's this weekend!) I've had SO much fun planning and putting this all together!! eeeek!!


monday monday

It's a new week, the sun is shining, I've been playing with paper all day and my favorite 60's tunes have been playing all afternoon. Tis been lovely! Happy Monday friends!


The roses are blooming...and I'm so happy! I wait all year for these to bloom. Nothing like a little bouquet of them in my bedroom. And oh they smell heavenly! Hope you all don't get tired of seeing flowers, because I assure you, I'll be posting a lot the next few weeks!

I'm back from a lovely weekend spent with some dear friends. Friends really are the best! ♥

Did you have a lovely weekend?


my week in photos

for the past week I've been traveling with family, and oh has it been lovely! I love traveling! New places to go, new people to meet and new adventures.

lots of cold drinks, and my favorite for supper - fresh fruit. ( yes, sometimes I only eat fruit for supper)

I can't pass a mirror without taking a picture....

lots of opportunities to kiss this sweet little face, and oh the happiness when he says my name!

and what would life be without my favorite snack? yes, popcorn is the only thing in the world that I'm addicted to.

Now it's major laundry catch-up time, and back to the everyday of life that I love so much.
