ribbons and bows, paper flowers and pennant streamers- what’s there not to love? stylist livia cetti is an event designer, crafster and contributing editor for martha stewart weddings.  based out of nyc, i love how her work balances a modern flair with organic sensibilities.  can you believe that those flowers are actually tissue paper carnations? you can order them right from her website! and can i just say, if i was standing in front of that candy display, it wouldn’t be looking that way for long. are those candy dots i see rolled up? oddly enough, those are my favorite (paper and all)! visit her website for more inspiration- especially if you’re planning a wedding!

carrie strine

quilts, streamers and coasters, oh my!  carrie strine’s work makes me want to have a party, or at least dress my house with some of her beautiful textiles.  every piece is made by hand from wall hangings to pillows and the colors are so fresh and surprising. make sure to visit her fabulous blog (seriously, i’ve looked at every.page.). xoxo!

Simple Vertical Garden

September 2, 2010

I’m in the middle of moving from one house to another and just splurged and ordered a bunch of Wally’s from woolypockets to build a vertical wall for myself as a housewarming present!   I have been coveting the Wally’s for a while now and finally took the plunge.  How could I possibly resist the promise of lush houseplants growing up my wall…without having to build an entire irrigation system to care for them!!!

OK…so I won’t go quite this far…that’s over 100 Wally Five’s!!

But I’m hoping for something like this:

Or this in my new kitchen – I love how it is filled with edibles!

Woolypockets are made from recycled soda bottles, are lightweight and easy to install and, most importantly, have a great irrigation system that won’t harm your walls or your floors. I’m super excited and look forward to planting these guys up!

Here’s a video with more information about the Wally Woolypockets:

Have a great weekend my plant loving friends!

dear colorado springs,

we so enjoyed our visit.  thank you for having such beautiful weather!  our mornings were crisp and our afternoons were perfectly sunny.  our evenings were met with a gentle breeze just perfect for a light sweater. we walked and walked and though our feet got tired your scenery rejuvenated us.  our meals were delicious and the local shops made our visit so fun.  thank you for having no bugs (north carolina, are you listening?), i so appreciated not receiving a single mosquito bite during our visit!  your mountains are glorious and your skies are vast.  though this visit was short, we hope to be back soon. bye bye!
