state fair dresses update..

hi everyone! I am sewing up a storm today..trying to finish up my dresses before next Saturday when we are having our photoshoot at Smithfield Cottage here in Savannah with all 5 girls in all five dresses..including my lil sis who will be in town! There will be tons of fun photos to share..but here is the lovely beth who did a lil shoot with me today in the Cartwheel dress and the Bingo Dress!


the one and only...

Darcy Miller of Martha Stewart weddings...she was looking oh so precious in this golden yellow blouse with kelly green cardi on martha the other morning as she explained that they made the velvet ring boxes that are on the cover of the magazine this month...dreamy..She has a blog so check it out!

i am loving..

..this oh so wonderful skirt from anthropologie..


All of these wonderful images are the work of artist Katie Runnels. I don't know what to say.. she has taken all the most wonderful trinkets and placed them yummily either under a bell jar or on a wreath of yarn...enough said! Soak up every detail and see more of her work here or here!


the sartorialist.

If you don't visit here regularly, you should! The Sartorialist captures quite the fashionistas all over the globe..Paris, Milan, Florence, New York...I am inspired by these characters faces and their ability to ooze chic-ness...I want to ooze chicness like Louise at the Louvre.

frank horvat.

Found these great images by photographer Frank Horvat from the fifties. Enjoy!

Stumbled upon this oh so wonderful new address announcement on tiny prints. If I'm totally on top of things when I move this summer maybe I'll send one to you!
