{two lovely things: warm & woodsy}

{two lovely things}: time-worn wood tables and ornately carved chairs, smooth driftwood and bits of coral -- always come back to the rustic elegance of warm and woodsy things . . .

{fashion inspiration: mint velvet}

. . . always adore beautiful things shot beautifully, although sometimes fall more for the photography, mint velvet's spring/summer collection is filled with romantic and delicate pieces with their trademark relaxed glamour -- perhaps stripes for a late spring picnic, or silver sequins for sexy summer nights -- but mostly love the mood of the these photographs, which feel as if they were taken on a perfectly bright and wonderful afternoon spent relaxing at home . . .

{p.s.} also today, a guest post: 10 things

. . . the stems of lilies and fluttery dresses, new leaves and the glass of champagne bottles -- whether sage, seafoam, lakeshore or chartreuse -- mornings have been filled with the celebration of spring green . . .
