A brag to bag

I think there's something sweet about some simple rustic decor!

I've been trying to come up with a a gift for a friend's wedding shower this weekend and (although it isn't "holiday" themed like the party) I just love the stuff Bragging Bags have in their wedding shop!

Olive juice

Makes me smile...

even if simple...


 ...hope that it will stay,

Fa la la la la lall...

Well, judging by the weather in Nashville this week, it looks like fall could actually be here to stay (yayy)!

So, why not look for some more fun fall finds?!


Cider, anyone?

"Please sir, I want some more"


Well, if you're on your computer over the weekends!

Just recently, J.Crew started offering their Factory Store merchandise online, but it's only available for short amount of time...the weekend!

So, put your thrifty gloves on and get to shoppin'
...or, well, at least get ready for the weekend.

...which one's your favorite?

Somebody's Somethin'

I may not be a celebrity junkie, but I can say I was extremely excited to go see Scott Schuman at The Sartorialist exhibit in Atlanta last Friday!

Where fashion met rock and roll.
Can't take pictures of the exhibit, why not take pictures of the shoes?
Hot & Crowded. Both understatements, as is this picture.
And what's waiting in line after driving 4 hours have your picture made with Scott Shuman?
Although, I might wait longer for this one...
(especially since he pushed me to go, despite leaving for Portland 3 days later, and having zero interest outside of myself...and he even played along with my picture taking fanatics- thanks Andrew!)

Then, outside the Hagedorn Gallery, about to head back to Nashville

And I walked away with something... 

for Astrid:
whenever we see each other next,
wherever it may be,
a book swap will be needed,

between both you and me

I hope everyone has a wonderful Friday!

Missing motivation...

Yesterday took a little longer than normal to get motivated to work on my collection, so here's a little motivation and inspiration for today...

An Ad?
(one I put together a year ago in an advertising class - assignment: promote a fabric):

Well, maybe not this one...

...but hey, tomorrow's Friday!!
What motivates you?

Goodbye Summer!

Time to wave goodbye to summer...

...and say hello to fall...

Isn't this fall stamp set fun?

Cooler weather?

Yes, please.  And driving with the windows down...all the time.

Something white, something black, something blue

These pictures by my Paranoia 7 are so captivating and creative. I think the black and whites are my favorites!
Jasmin, thanks for a great beginning to the day...

What do YOU think?

Portland Bound

Well, it's official! Andrew's leaving today to move out to Portland, Oregon to begin running with a group for Nike!  

Andrew, I love you, I miss you already, and I can't wait to see you in 4 weeks!
I hope you always follow your dreams...

You're the PB to my J

Who would've thought?          

From hot apple pie and lemon meringue to confetti cake and boston cream doughnuts, Scrumptious Doodle's shop hopes to charm you with something sweet...literally

Cinnabon anyone?
Ready. Set. Confetti.
Now this cupcake bracelet may not be for me, but how cute would this be for a little girl on her birthday?

Up & Running

The first items are up and the shop is ready to go...or kind of.  It may be in it's beginning stage, but you have to have a beginning to start anything, right?  
Anyhow, if you look under "LITTLE TIDBITS..." there is now a "Shop Our Store" page.

Thought of the day from Please Be Still:

Lovely, lovely, lovely.
