LOW KEY DATE NIGHTS WITH THE ONE YOU LOVE

date night in//a stylish little lady
this weekend in some ways was perfect.  we had nothing planned and could do just about anything. and out of all the millions of things we could have done, saturday night the hubby and i made ourselves comfy on the sofa.  lit a candle or two.  binged on college basketball.  and ate leftover mexican food followed by some tasty talenti.  sometimes it's just nice to slow your roll and kick back with your love.  and let me just say, if you have not tried talenti gelato's, get yourself to a store stat.  i'm on a mission to make my way thru all the flavors and if  a talenti rep just happens to be reading this ... free product in exchange for raving reviews could be arranged!  just sayin' ...

so yes, i sometimes like a good low key, simple, inexpensive date. do you?

what do you do with your love that cost very little or nothing at all?

sidenote//looking for some date night in supplies?  stock up on some talenti and share it with those wooden spoons.  slip into that kimono and the slippers to get comfy. burn your favorite incense in that little hut. now sit back and become drenched in the vibe of nina simone and sam cooke. and since some of these items are from etsy, you can enter to win an etsy gift card here

peace to your heart.
later.

what up friends?

it's monday again and i think i could have used a bit more sleep.  how was your weekend? we were pretty low key around here ... mostly basketball watching as we are sucked into march madness and catching up on our ever growing library of recorded tv.  oh, and then there were tacos!  still trying to get myself in the groove of a new week though, so to kick things off, i thought i would share the carter family portrait gallery.  this tumblr is a collection of iconic art that has been superimposed with the likeness of the king and queen of the music biz (along with their baby girl) into each masterpiece.  hilarious, but quite impressive i must say.

it's monday again friends.
let's get her done!

peace to your heart.
later.

WHO SAYS YOU CAN ONLY HANG PICTURES ON YOUR WALLS?

handmade wall hangings//a stylish little lady

hello sweet friends.

it's been awhile ... i know, i know. but the past couple of weeks have been crazy!  there's been lots of travel, a stomach virus for me ... one head cold for the sweet boy ... and a dog that had to pay a visit to the vet for some meds.  but, i'm pleased to report all is well on the home front and we are now feeling good and in the best of spirits. we were dropping like flies over here, but with winter storms hopefully behind us and sunshine on the horizon, we can't complain.

and speaking of home fronts?  i thought i would share my latest obsession.  i love a good piece of art or some memories captured in photographs on the wall, but my latest love is hanging something a little less traditional.  you may remember this hanging and i thought i would share a few handmade ones that caught my eye.

so what's your take?  are you a traditionalist when it comes to decorating your walls?
i'd love to hear what you having hanging over at your place.

peace to your heart.
later.

ps//you can find them here:
abstract driftwood mobile
hand carved indian wood cow bells
tribal mobile
abstract brass + gunmetal hanging

A POST FOR YOUR WEDNESDAY AND A LITTLE SWEET ESCAPE

hello sweet friends.

it's the middle of the week and i hope it is treating you just fine.
more than anything, i thought i would give you a break from your day ... a quick little tour around the world, documented with a needle and thread.

teresa lim, a textile designer and illustrator has managed to capture scenic landscapes with her embroidery hoop. much like a camera, her embroidered landscapes allow her to document a moment in time which will never be forgotten. even more, these little textile creations are a reminder for us to just enjoy the moment and allow ourselves to be completely consumed by it.

it's another wednesday.
find a moment in your day where you can just be ... no phone, no email.
just enjoy the moment.

peace to your heart.
later.
