feliz cinco de mayo

Growing up in Southern California, I've always been influenced by Mexican culture, so in honor of Cinco De Mayo, I decided to post a loteria board. Loteria is a Mexican board game, similar to bingo, but uses these amazing pictograms instead of letters and numbers. I've always loved these simple graphics and their even simpler descriptions below. Wishing all of you a wonderful Cinco De Mayo!

{on holiday} montreal, canada

And the adventure begins. Shortly I'll be on my way to one of my favorite cities in the world, Montreal. This gorgeous city has so much to offer, especially when it's not covered in snow. The best part of Montreal is spending time with all of my family, LOVE!

out of office

 

Some of you may already know, but just in case I thought I'd fill you all in. My husband and I are going on a little vacation for the next few weeks. We got married almost two years ago and never officially went on a honeymoon... so we're making it up by going BIG! I'm not going to give away our final destination(s) but check back to see where we've landed. Please bare with me while the next several weeks of posts may be sparse, but I promise they will be VERY fun. Ta ta for now!! xo

there's something about bulges

 

There's something about these plaster bulges, by artist Susan Dwyer, that is so interesting to me. I am absolutely captivated by the colors, the shapes, and the composition. I would LOVE to have these up in our home... one day!

pretty dried flowers...

... full of color and life, by Flores Del Sol. I love this as a more permanent option to giving someone flowers, and the unique vintage vases are so much fun. Don't forget, Mother's Day is just around the corner.

a little industrial glam...

... to brighten your day. I've always loved the mix of industrial mechanical metals with delicate shimmering objects, and this Hand Blown Glass Chandelier from Strawser & Smith is no exception. Such a perfect balance of rustic casual and sophisticated elegance.

Blow Bow Bash

A few weeks ago those fabulously talented ladies from Bash, Please hosted a magical girlie evening at The Dry Bar full of ban.do goodies... Blow Bow Bash! With all the glittery fun there was so much eye candy... but these gorgeous arrangements took my breath away. They are so clever... and I love the way they displayed all those wonderful ban.do accessories. I may have to steal this idea for my 30th birthday bash.
