May Wedding Photography

I adore this bohemian, countryside wedding and those cowboy boots! Can we say, rustic chic?
This sweet wedding was photographed by Brooklyn based photographer, Corinne Botz, of May Wedding Photography

"Tim and Lisa's wedding took place in the summer of 2005 at the Apple Barn Farm, upstate New York. They are both artists and their wedding was really fun, relaxed, beautiful, and creative. Their friends read poetry, and played songs during the ceremony and ended the evening with a bonfire."

How romantic and perfect is that?

A little Thanksgiving

Hosting Thanksgiving dinner?
Then you'll want to check out the little adorable flower shop, SAIPUA, located in Red Hook section of Brooklyn. They have started to take orders for Thanksgiving table arrangements - like the one pictured above. Prices range from $35 to $150 for centerpieces. You can bring in your vessel, or choose one of theirs. They also have a new shipment of tapers, brown and black.
Sarah and Eric, the creative team behind SAIPUA, not only make some of the most beautiful floral arrangements for every occasion, including weddings of course but they also dabble in a little soap making along with Sarah's mother, who overseas the production side from upstate NY.
Last time I was in NYC, I bought a bunch from here bringing a little brklyn to milan.
I sit and stare at the packaging on my desk.Too pretty to open up. Not to mention the beautiful aroma that seeps out filling up my studio with a scents of white grapefruit and bergamont....

Also, be sure to check out their blog here

twigs and heather

Looking to preserve a bit of nature and carry it with you always?
Look no further.
The designers of Twigs and Heather
gather delicate plant life, cast it in silver making magical little pieces that look like they've grown straight out of an enchanted forest.

I think I need one of those birch bark rings asap. Or maybe I can hold out till
Christmas. It is just around the corner, right?
Maybe A. is reading this hint hint.....

Italian Vogue

a little Italian Vogue to start of your day......
Right now we are working on "home improvements". I just finished painting our front hallway, navy blue, and can't help put think that the cover image of the fall Vogue is to DIE for! A hand painted wall of birch trees would be perfect for our guest room but who has the time? Instead, I'm on a mission for similar wallpaper....
Anyone have ideas?
oh and the fashions on Ms. Evangelista are divine.......
