I love the design and style of the clothes and the styling of the pictures. So perfect!

I sprits Jo Malone White Jasmine and Mint Cologne only once, on the back of my neck. It's a fresh, subtle scent that I never get sick of. I think that's important in a perfume. It has lasted me a long time and I look forward to it being my signature scent for years to come. What's your signature scent?
I just wanted to apologize for my erratic posting during the last few weeks. I've been working on studying for my exams, and starting a vintage shop on etsy. It will be up and running in a couple of days I hope. I worked on a banner and had to take a bunch of pictures for the images on etsy. My camera is very horrible and never does what I want it to do, so it takes double as long! So, that's where I've been. Hopefully it will be back to normal soon and everyone will enjoy looking at the really cool vintage stuff I have to offer! The photos above are of my grandmother when she was young, and my sister and cousin when they were young as well. I've always been inspired by the love of antiques by my grandmother Ruth, and the purple glass is what I inherited from her when she passed. Those type of sentimental things are always nice to have.
This is another one of those ideas that I wish I had though of first. Over at Layers of Meaning, the purpose of her "through her eyes" series is to peak into the personal lives of her favourite bloggers. Last week was what's in your purse, and this week it's about handwriting. Very, very cool to read.
I came across this abandoned farmhouse turned life-size dollhouse in the new issue of Lula Magazine. Do you ever come across interesting artistic interpretations and wish you came up with them first? Well this one is definitely one of them for me.

This apartment belongs to floral designer Nicolette Owen. I spotted it over at Design Sponge. This apartment reminds me so much of my own! It's like someone went into my brain and splatted it all over this apartment! I'm in love with little nick nacks, antiques, fresh flowers, airy colours..and you can tell she does too. It's so cute. I just love it. What a great find.

I found this vintage display case from an antique market. It can be laid flat on a bureau or hung up the way I did it. It was perfect the way it was; distressed light turquoise with black velvet and a few antique pegs already there. It's a great place to keep my few very favourite peices.
Retro style sunglasses by featured designer Zooey Deschanel for Oliver Peoples. I love her style, but I think they could have come up with something a little more original. In another sense, it is a classic style, considering the glasses are over $400.00, you would have them for quite a while.

Built By Wendy is a clothing and accessories collection by Wendy Mullin. She makes books of sewing and pattern making that are very easy to follow...and if you don't know much about sewing to begin with, it's a great tool to learn from!
Wendy also sells patterns individually, for a good price!
And..she also has two boutiques in New York and has an online shop of the clothes she sells already made..such beautiful creations!!
