A Farmer's Wedding

I couldn't resist posting these farmer's wedding I came across in the NY Times this past week. Both the bride and groom are extremely passionate about farming both personally and professionally and their wedding was a beautiful reflection of that. All of the decor and food throughout their celebration was from local markets, and the ceremony took place at one of my favorite places on earth, Stone Barns in Tarrytown, NY. All of the details came across as incredibly thoughtful, simple and casual, and not overpowering which at the end of the day, is the kind of wedding I would love to attend.

Color Coded Flowers

The mix of colored floral combinations at Tapestry Flowers makes it extremely useful and convenient to navigate through their website. They have some really beautiful floral arrangements; I especially love the lavender arrangement with pops of cobalt blue, a colorway that I am a little obsessed with right now...

H is for Hannah

H is for Hannah has a cute line of trompe l'oeil dinnerware for all of you jewelry fanatics. A set or even just the cup/vase would make a great gift!

Lovely Nostalgia

The embroidery work of Karen Ruane is delicately beautiful and lovingly nostalgic. I would love to buy a series of her embroidered pictures and have them floating in a vintage frame.
