I'm off to Seattle to be in a wedding, so needless to say, I'm a little love inspired. This unbelievabley heartwarming wedding shoot was found on Spearmint Wedding. We love the vintage vibe and the casual feel that this couple is glowing with. Umm...also, isn't the honeycomb quilt fabulous?! We think so! Cheers to love, weddings, and awesome picnic blankets. Have a blissful weekend! Hope these pics inspired!

These bags are AH-mazing!! Not only are they pleasing to the eye (very), they are all hand crafted in Shelter's studio in North Carolina. Made with leather, canvas, and lots of love and care! Yes, we love these bags. If you do too, go to their store on Etsy!

Found on the lovely site of Refinery29, this apartment is full of so much whimsy. With the crisp, white walls as her blank canvas, Chicago girl Lindsay Segal displays her vintage treasures that range from patterned plates to robot replicas. In seeing her place, it only makes sense that Lindsay is behind a site called LuxuryGarageSale.com. The name says it all, it is a special online place to sell (and find) gently used (but still quite special, we might add) items. Check, check, check it out!!

Louis Reith exhibit is coming to San Francisco! His pieces will be shown at Needles & Pens in September and we are so excited to check it out. We love Louis Reith's work because of his composition with simple shapes and his bold mix up with different mediums. "Mountains" made of maps? Yes, please! You can see more of his work on his site as well as his upcoming exhibit travels. Exploring there is how we found out about the stop in San Fran. Needles and Pens is a pretty nifty shop, well worth checking out as well. This is an affordable, ecclectic space in the Mission District that talented artsy folks can display their zines, DIY goods, and of course art!

We all know that ombre hair is all the rage. Yes, me, Sarah, the voice of our blog even has a color fade hair do, but today we thought we would step outside the salon and share some lovely ombre finds in your home or outfit, just not on your head.

Pierre Frey masters vintage in today's world of decorating. A lot of modern home lover's tend to shy away from this design house because of it's rich history of traditional patterns. Well, we found some fabulous fabric prints and wallpaper designs that are sure to please people with all sorts of decorating tastes. Even Pierre Frey's own magazine publication has an article about the modern-lover's hesitating to see their archives. Read here to see the treats they have that were created in the past, but are clean, graphic, and forward.

Posting on Dries Van Noten's splendid project of offering up their archival prints to make your very own mixed print frock, got us inspired to look for other ways designers are representing their prints from the past. Pucci has a beautiful (and huge) book featuring where they've been in the world of print design. It features their vintage looks and explains the inspiration behind them.What inspired Pucci back then are still influential today, and this is why we love this book. To top it off, this book can will look so good on our bookshelves, as each one is bound with a different, recent Pucci print. Check out some recent Pucci on the runway here.

We haven't down a collage in a while, so we thought we would do one! This little diddy was inspired by the work of Erik Jones. Most known for his comic book art, in his way with a brush paints eery and dreamy art with a unique edge. We hand chose one of his paintings, then picked items from home decor and fashion that we felt emulated the look and feel of this piece. We want all these things and are putting them on our wish lists immediately, hey maybe in getting them we will channel the awe and attitude that we get from Erik Jones' work.

Going back into the archives is all the rage for designers, bringing back their best from the past has never been more popular. When we found out what Design house Dries Van Noten was doing with their past prints, we got uber excited. They are taking it to the next level. To celebrate the opening of their new store in Berlin, they are offering their vintage prints to be handpicked and made into their Daya dress from their F/W 11 collection. The dress was designed to incorporate 5 different prints, all which you can pick to your liking, creating your perfectly mixed print Dries look. Check out more about this here.

We have done a post on Lauren Willhite's work found on her very awesome blog, The Color Collective. This time, we discovered her in a whole new setting...being a feature writer on Design Sponge. There, she showcases fabulously decorated and unique spaces of some pretty creative peeps. She shows the spaces, creates a beautiful color palette, and hand picks like items to have for your own home! We just loved this space, Lauren Naimola's, of Dear Golden on Etsy. The soft hues and mix of vintage are so relaxing. Click here to see Lauren's items she chose based off this beautiful home!

We heart Proud Mary. They create hand made, eco-friendly, not to mention good lookin' accessories for you and your home.

We look forward to continue following their success and checking back for new product and to be honest...staring at their beautiful photo spreads on line. They really paint a picture, don't they!
