Monogram Monday

Happy Monday! For today's Monogram Monday I thought give some examples of how to incorporate monograms into home decor. I absolutely love the idea of having personalized accents around your house and monograms are obviously the perfect choice. I really love this wood monogram for the front door. It is such a cute way to dress up the outside of your house and can be versatile for all seasons. The other way I saw a wooden monogram used was above a desk. I think the way Myquillyn over at the nesting place turned her wooden monogram into an art piece over her desk was so clever. I also really love monogram pillows. This bedroom is so sophisticated and beautiful with the black, white, and orange color combination. I really think monograms are such a sleek way to dress up a room and they always make a room look put together and personal.
Hopefully everyone has a lovely the rest of the week!

Weekend Picks

Hi y'all!! I feel like I've been MIA lately, I have been so busy recently and just have not had time to fit in time for creating posts, writing posts, etc. Anyways I'm back and couldn't be happier about it! I am also incredibly happy to say that it is officially spring (according to the calendar at least)! Spring and summer are my favorite times of the year and this weekends picks are somewhat spring inspired.
1) Pretty pretty paper: I already love Sugar Paper's stationary and notepads but I came across their wrapping paper the other day and I love it. I've been looking for wrapping paper that is simple but still fun and this reversible pink paper definitely fits the bill.
2)Peter Cottontail: With Easter approaching I thought I would feature these super cute calligraphed eggs. I love DIY projects especially holiday-themed ones so these eggs are right up my alley. These seem really easy to make, all you need is some tattoo paper, scissors, eggs and water!
3) Making banana pancakes: Whenever I think of banana pancakes all I can think about is Jack Johnson's song and that was just what I was humming while I made this banana bread pancake recipe the other night (yes I had pancakes for dinner). They were really good and super easy to make, plus I had all the ingredients in my pantry which made it that much better since I didn't have to go to store.
4)Magnolia trees and sweet iced tea: I looove these prints by One Canoe Two. Almost all of the U.S. states have prints and they are all so beautiful. These would be perfect house-warming gifts, graduation gifts, or birthday gifts and at $16 a pop you can't beat the price.
Have a lovely weekend and enjoy the rest of March!

Weekend Picks

Happy Saturday! I'm hoping everyone is having a good weekend so far (mine has been crazy). Listed below are a few of my recent finds/picks.
1) I am in love with these prints that I came across. The prints are by Stephanie Creekmur, who happens to run her own Etsy shop (surprise surprise, I know another Etsy shop). She has a collection of prints named "Sweet Southern Charm" and they are all so cute. I especially love this print!
2)I'm going on a trip next week so I thought that I would feature this passport cover. I think passport covers are a nice way to add some pop to your luggage/travel gear. I have the passport cover above and I absolutely adore it.
3)Ahh sunnies. I love love love sunglasses and a chic cover for them is a must. Rebecca Minkoff creates some really fun leather accessories. I particularly love her Corey coin pouches and her sunglass cases.
4)Anyone that knows me knows that I am a list person. Lists for me put everything on the table and allow me to visualize what exactly I need to get done. Call me crazy but I also get satisfaction out of crossing things off of my lists. This to-do notepad is perfect for my thousands of lists, plus it comes in four different bright colors that make your lists functional and pretty.
