wall blank

have you heard about wall blank? each weekday a new piece of art is available for sale, and it’s available for one week unless the piece sells out. the prices are pretty fantastic.

the prints featured above are from their vintage collection. they are releasing a different vintage print each day during the day of january. i’m looking forward to seeing the rest of their offerings.  |  via @kim_michelle

catered cupcakes

recently, i came across the the cupcake bar, and i just had to share it with you guys. it’s such a fabulous idea for a party. prior to the event, the host selects a cupcake menu and they can customize it to match their particular party theme or color scheme. at the event, guests choose the cupcake flavor, filing, icing + topping of their choice and the cupcake bartenders put it together on the spot. plus, they handle all the set-up and clean up!

oh, and yes those are cupcakes topped with nerds + pop rocks. fun, right?

cheese table

have you seen this gorgeous dessert cheese table display put together by sunday suppers? i love the white pedestals and glass cloches and the ethereal cheese cloth tablecloth draped over the rustic table. it’s simply beautiful.

it looks so scrumptious, too. oh, man how i miss soft cheese. i’m really looking forward to nibbling on some post baby!

lace paper

pretty lace paper from kate’s paperie would be lovely wrappings for valentine’s day gifts.

dash & albert totes

Loving these hand-loomed cotton tote bags by rug company dash & albert. they look rugged but cozy.

flagrante delicia

i just discovered this wonderful dessert blog called flagrante delicia, and i just had to share it with you. the photography is simply beautiful, and the desserts look divine!

jewelry holders

every time i put on a pair of earrings or put away a necklace i realize the need for a better way to organize my jewelry collection. i have a drawer dedicated to my jewelry, and inside i use ice cube trays to store my earrings. laughably, my necklaces are in plastic baggies to keep them from tangling except for those that i wear most often – those are draped over knobs of a jewelry box that resides on top of my chest of drawers. i definitely need a better solution.

from stands to holders that you can hang, i noticed urban outfitters has lots of nice options. the nautilus stand is my favorite i think, but that wouldn’t solve my necklace problem. maybe this ceramic bust would be the solution for those?

how do you store/display your jewelry?

clara french

these gorgeous cake stands and dessert plates that you can either purchase or rent for special occasions have recently been added to my wish list. they’re so pretty with their drippy glazes. i’d love to own one. i’d be so happy pulling one of these beauties out for parties!
