Anthro Inspires ~

 A Anthropologie store visit always gets my creative juices flowing and my wallet crying :)  Love the unique, great quality clothing, accessories and home decor they offer!  The stores amazing vignettes are eye catching and beautifully organic!

Cute Vases!  The candles are the best, so fragrant!

~Lets say I wasn't following my shopping budget that day :) Sent this picture to a friend asking, "mint jeans ya or nay?"  I loved the soft tees in back, as you can see, I wanted one in every color!  (I just had a hair cut, usually I'm a curly hair girl, straight was a fun change!)

Belle Weekend

 yard in bloom.....
My Rhododendron

one week later - so pretty!
& inside, three cute babies looking for Mom to bring food
Love seeing my yard in bloom
I forget what the name of this plant is, do you know?  I almost yanked this beauty out, after the winter it looked dry and dead, so happy I didn't!
My little garden is just beginning to grow!  I used my basil in a dish this weekend :) makes me so happy!
How was your weekend, any big plans?  I had a great weekend despite the rain and colder temps here.  Thankfully the sun peeked out on Monday, so I snapped a few pics.  My weekend was a party filled one, with a friends birthday on Friday and a party at my home Saturday, such a blast!  I'm so excited to enjoy cookouts with the warm weather right around the corner! 
My gardening friends, how's your garden coming along, what do you like to plant?  I'd love to learn any gardening tips you may have!

Mellow Yellow ~

A pop of yellow in a space is actually more invigorating than mellow, wouldn't you say!  I'm very drawn to the happy hue lately!  What are your thoughts on the color yellow?  Are you a fan?

Kitchen Crush

Emily Henderson
Loving this kitchen design by Emily Henderson in this months issue of HGTV magazine!  The uniqueness of the clean modern lines paired with the rustic reclaimed wood on the island and the wood ceiling beams,  is perfection.  How fun and unexpected are the mixed style light fixtures!  The entire house is beautifully designed, be sure to check it out!

Have a wonderful weekend!
