Cupcakes Galore

My sweet baby girl, Marin, will be turning one in March and I am just beginning to plan her first birthday party.  For Christmas her great aunt got her these cute little seersucker longalls.  Aren't they just about the sweetest thing you've ever seen?  I am currently putting together a little inspiration board on Pinterest.  I am thinking handmade garlands and party hats, rainbow sprinkles and striped paper straws.  More to come soon!

In the Navy

I have this obsession with navy blue. Our duvet cover is navy and although it is a magnet for our dog's hair, I love it. For Christmas I was gifted these lovely striped sheets from West Elm that I have been coveting for months. Now I finally have a reason to begin decorating our master. It has only been, oh, 17 months since we bought this house. I think it is high time something was done with it rather than having it be overtaken by piles of laundry, books and abandoned baby items.


Navy is such a classic, crisp color, don't you think? Oh boy, and give me anything with stripes and I swoon. I am thinking I want to accent the room with vintage maps, a wire hamper and vintage suitcases repurposed into nightstands. Now, to get the motivation to make this little idea of mine actually come to fruition...

If we had room I would also set up a little reading nook with these babies. I have been eyeing them for months now and the price is amazing!

Oh, and maybe throw in this bed frame I have been dying over. Another great buy and surprisingly sturdy given the source.
