I’ll be back on Tuesday 9/17 with more colorful inspiration! We scored free tickets to see Chris Fiarbanks at Helium Comedy Club on Saturday. Plus, truthfully, the house needs some good ol’ TLC! Also, we went to a beautiful family wedding and dahlia festival last weekend so I have flowers on the brain (thus the photo). Hope ya’ll enjoy the weekend!

{Wish I Was Wednesday} Jason DeMarte





These works of art with photography by Jason DeMarte are playful yet are really thought-provoking. I love the mix of nature with consumer products we see every day.

{Color Palette} Desert Of Flowers


Vintage looking desertscapes are inspiring me today (via Nasty Gal). It’s funny how many colors can actually show up in the desert. If you’re into deserts, you might be into this color palette too.

{Freebie Friday} DIY Floral Monograms


I’ve been obsessed with flowers for the past few months now. I wanted to make something else fun for my coworker’s birthday garland bombing. Then it struck me, what better way to spell out her name than in flowers! Plus, luckily it’s flower week here! Stay tuned for the happy birthday garland freebie.




  • Printer
  • Template
  • Copy paper
  • Tape
  • Foam board (I got mine at the dollar store) – You can probably get about 7-8 letters per board
  • A mix of small and big fabric flowers (I got mine at the dollar store) - I used 1-2 bunches for each letter, if you want to fill the whole letter with flowers plan on 2-3 bunches per letter. You can also use tissue paper flowers (DIY to come).
  • Exacto knife / Scissors / Pruning scissors (depending on how hard your fabric flowers are to cut)
  • Self healing mat or extra board to protect work surface
  • Hot glue gun or any strong glue
  • If hanging: Hang Tab template, Cardstock, Hole punch, String


  1. Click on letter template to open. Decide what you want to spell out and print out those letters onto copy paper.
  2. Tape template onto foam board. Trim white parts of template if you’re trying to fit as many as possible on the foam board.
  3. Place self healing mat or an extra foam board on work surface to protect. Use the exacto knife or scissors (depending on thickness of board) to cut out letters.
  4. If using fabric flowers, cut them from their stems. Some fabric flowers and leaves can just be popped off their stems. I chose to pop off the leaves and hot glue gun them to each flower because I liked the green in the mix. It’s up to you if you want to use the leaves.
  5. Arrange flowers on your cut out letter.
  6. Once you’re happy with the look, hot glue gun the flowers down. Allow time for the glue to dry.
  7. If hanging, click on hang tab template to open. Print on cardstock. Cut along solid lines. Punch holes out at “X.” Glue as many as needed to top back  or sides of monograms. Allow glue to dry. Loop string through the punched holes and knot to hang or if hanging against a wall, just stuck the pin through the hang tab.

DIY Food Garden Nature Party

{Loved & Noted} DIY Seed Tape, DIY Rose Ice Cubes, & Florist Sean Cook’s Party


I’ve been so obsessed with flower arranging and caught garden fever hard this year since it was my first spring with a backyard. So I’m imagining these overly elaborate parties filled with good food and fresh flowers like Florist Sean Cook’s party spread. These DIY rose ice cubes would definitely be in the mix with a signature cocktail. These DIY seed tapes would be the perfect parting gift for all the guests!

PS: This week is informally brought to you by flowers. I was lining up posts & realized that I’m all about flowers this week! Stay tuned for more floral goodness.

How are you entertaining this summer? Any grand dreams?

{Color Palette} Lavender Picking


Lavender is definitely a calming scent for me. The vibrant colors of this color palette (via The Bride’s Cafe) have me dreaming of the lavender festival we went to a few years back and pining for some lemonade made with this lavender syrup. If you’re in the Portland area, here’s the info on the festival this year July 13-14, 2013: Oregon Lavender Festival.
