Happy Valentine's Day!

Today I'm excited because Valentine's Day has arrived and I can't wait to be surrounded by flowers, sweets and hearts galore. My house is filled with the smell of roses, irises and orchids, all in full bloom. Tonight I plan on making a spaghetti dinner with homemade marinara, homemade meatballs and a pear walnut salad. For dessert, pink and red cupcakes. Happy Love Day! <3

Love Crush

Pretty heart doilies
February is all about love, pink and hearts. I cannot get enough of the color pink, which seems to be everywhere you turn in February. Not to mention the overabundance of chocolates, cupcakes and sweet nothings. Who could possibly ask for more?
Lovely lace
My sweetheart

Tiffany Love

If I had to choose one iconic place to rule them all, it would be Tiffany & Co. The door is like the gateway to Camelot and something magical happens upon entering this enchanting place. I recently came across a print ad for Tiffany & Co, which inspired me to create this post. The ad was simple, clean and spoke a thousand words through one little blue box. Classic. I sense a room redesign in the near future.

Cute Boutique Find: The Little Dress Shop

A pretty painting in the doorway
Amidst a lazy stroll through Claremont, I stumbled upon a store that is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. The Little Dress Shop is a quaint boutique filled with handmade jewelry, cute little dress and unique accessories. I couldn't help but try on a few dresses while I browsed some pretty accessories, all made by local jewelry makers. My favorite finds include a stunning peacock cuff bracelet, some elaborate vintage-looking headbands and bracelets made of vintage buttons. I have a feeling gift shopping is going to be a cinch in 2011.
