i went for a walk around my little town and found a bunch of beautiful type! i guess i need to open my eyes more to take it all in. i took pictures to share with you...

found a cool gate with my old initials... feels like an alley in italy

love this old school, vintage mailbox

plaque with sunken relief numbers

love the opposing hues on this drain

ohhh it's a flash mob... ohhh!!

this is a little off the subject of weddings and pretty things and everything else that i usually post about, but maybe it will inspire some dancing or make you smile a bit brighter today.

how i love modern family! in last night's episode mitchell did a flash mob for cam as his "love letter to cam." so great!! the best part is when cam is trying to clap and dance along with the mob, but he has no idea of the moves. "this is joyful, mitchell!!!"

check out the video HERE!

and ride off into the sunset after the wedding!

bamboo wood salad sets as guest favors to be really "green"

potted herbs as placecards and guest favors

setting by martha stewart weddings

love how simple this cake is... looks like ribbons

maybe lilly inspired?

my love for succulents has not faltered

i want to get married again just so i can wear these!

the combo of winter and typically spring flowers is really beautiful

LOVE that bouquet!

i stumbled upon this awesome embroidery company, sublime stitching, created by jenny hart. she has revitalized embroidery with our generation and her stitches are totally funky. seeing her work inspires me to pick up a needle!

our labor of love

i'm in love with these photos by our labor of love. the whole shoot seems so intimate and private, like we are looking through a peep hole spying on the cute couple, the famous photographer max wanger and his beautiful bride, margaux.
