Haute Boudoir : Miss M

The lovely and talented Miss M came up from Savannah to DC, DC to Delaware for an Haute Boudoir session just as the snow was starting to melt. Myself, Miss M and Kristen Lober had such a fun afternoon, we didn't really want it to end. But all good things must come to an end, and luckily for us, we have these photos, and so does M's husband, who is overseas serving our country.

Inspirations : Rustic Red

So, I guess I'm on a serious Linen kick-but I love how light and airy it is, and how it looks so chic while being wrinkly-that's my kinda fabric! What makes this type of relaxed affair so delightful is how unkept it is-from the wrinkly linen tableclothes to the hand stitched heart, it's beautifully imperfect, which makes it all the more appealing. This time with linen, our colors are deep scarlet red, warm oatmeal, porcelain white and little accents of fiery orange and summer sage.

Inspirations : French Provincial Nuptials

After falling in love with this dress over on Today I Want, I decided to buy it, and the obsession lead me to fantasize about a Rustic French Countryside wedding. Beautiful Linen and Lace accents, potted herb display, Fragrant Herb and Lavender bouquets, Linen suits, old fashion bicycles and lots of delicious breads, wine and cheeses.

Happy St. Patricks Day!

I'm not Irish at all (Scottish, Native American, and Dutch thank you very much), but I adore this Shamrock Necklace!

Shamrock Frocks

I remember fondly in elementary school that the week of St. Patricks day was full of coloring shamrocks, making green pudding and listening to interesting stories about Ireland, and I recall not so fondly, if you forgot to wear green any day that week, you got pinched really hard. So here you go, in case where you work is as ruthless about sporting green as my elementary school...

Anyone who knows me even a little knows I'm a hardcore animal lover, and am particularly doting on my two cats, Gracie and Neko. Nic bought them this really great bed which they absolutely LOVE, and for anyone who loves cats and modern furniture, this bed's for you.

Jubilee Commercial : Walter's Whole Foods

I'm lucky that so many of my business clients I also consider good friends, so spending a day at Bucktoe with Diane, Cathy and Joelle styling these amazing, all natural foods for dogs was such a joy, not to mention made my stomach growl.

Everything on the menu is edible for people, and as you can see, Diane's kittens couldn't resist! All these foods are homemade from all natural, organic ingredients and are the result of years of research, experience and dedication of their lives to the wellbeing and health of dogs.
Here is Walter of Walter's Whole Foods, or "Dubs" as he is affectionately called. He's quite a big boy, and is a super healthy, playful dog, having grown up eating his own foods since he was a tiny puppy.

The actual site, Bucktoe, is Diane's home, and she hopes to open a wellness & rehabilitation center on the property in the very near future that will welcome dogs and their companions, so for those who are animal lovers looking for very worthy causes, Gentle Spirit Farm could use all the help it can get so these remarkable women can get started making the world a better place for dogs.
