Another Friday, another week of pins! Here's what caught my eye on Pinterest this week...
[Sigh... how sweet and breezy is this front entryway? That adorable butter-yellow door just looks so friendly and bright. How could you not feel happy when walking in to this house?]
[I'm a big fan of of those industrial-looking cage-light pendants you've undoubtedly been seeing all over the Web (that's right, I said it - THE WEB. Apparently it is 1998). But I LOVE this spin on them - pendant lamps using mason jars! How rusticly perfect.]
[I'm a fan of big graphic letters. It's my dream to stumble across some big, old, standalone letters from an old gas station or retail store... and them somehow find a place for them in our house. But until then, here's a great tutorial for simple faux-metal letters perfect for making a statement (literally) in any room.]
[How adorable are these tea towels? I love their bright colors - not to mention they'd match out kitchen decor perfectly! So pretty.]
[Winter sure took its time to get to Milwaukee, but now that it's here, I can't think of anything more comforting than a nice, warm mug of hot chocolate... oh, except this insane-looking BAKED hot chocolate... Now I need a snowstorm for an excuse to gobble this up.]
[We've got a bag of almond flour that's been chillin' in the fridge (see what I did there?) for a while now, unsure of exactly what to use it for. The answer? Chocolate-chip cookies, of course! I'm definitely going to try out this recipe for almond-flour chocolate-chip cookies this weekend... if all goes well, I'll share it with you all!]
I CAN HAZ STYLE?
[Umm.. how pretty is this outfit?? It would be impossibly not to feel like a dainty, classy lady (even while chowing down on ribs, I'm hoping...) while wearing this outfit. Love the ultra-light pastels.]
[Oh, Anthropologie, how do you know me so well? It's time to push my other 25 cardigans a bit farther back into the closet, because if I owned this baby, it'd be my new favorite, hands down.]
[Oh J.Crew, you're only slightly behind Anthropologie for winner of my fashion heart. This gorgeous purple skirt could be dressed up or dressed down - how would I wear it? With a tucked-in, heather-gray v-neck t-shirt and long, chunky necklace. Of course, while wearing a messy bun.]
[This outfit just screams "me," and not because I definitely already own those boots. But I love that dress and the gray cardigan with bow-detailed pockets - how sweet!A great mix of soft and rugged touches.]
[I am head-over-heels in love with this numbered fabric flag to use as a table numbers. They bring such a fun touch of color and personality. So much more fun than a simple number, printed on cardstock, held up by a wire picture holder.]
[This bouquet is absolutely perfect - not fussy, but romantic and full of interest. The best part? The bride made it herself using flowers ordered from FiftyFlowers.com! It's good to see such a beautiful hand-crafter bouquet... because I'm fairly certain I'll be making my own, as well!]
[At our wedding, people WILL CERTAINLY be breaking it down. Breaking it down hard. So hard it will be physically impossible to continue wearing heels. Therefore, having an adorable option of dancing shoes like these cloth Mary Janes would be perfect - the ladies could protect their feet while still looking cute, without rubber flip flops. I love this idea.]
[First of all, I love this color palette. It looks like an ice-cream stand from a Rockwell painting. Secondly, how cute is the pure look of elation on these girls' faces? I absolutely love how happy this picture is.]
[I know, I know... I said I wasn't going to share any of the dresses I pin (ladies, if you're curious, you can find them on my "Gettin' Hitched - Dresses" board), but I can honestly say I won't be wearing a short dress, so this is an exception. It's sort of a shame I won't be a short-dress bride, because how freaking cute is this one by BHLDN? Those layered lace ruffles are just the sweetest.]
[Do you remember, all the way last summer, when we went to the Habitat for Humanity ReStore and I fell in love with this wooden mail-sorter... but had no idea what to do with it? Well... here is your answer. The perfect idea for either a card holder or a guestbook, where your guests leave notes in envelopes! Ugh, I'm kicking myself for not buying that when I had the chance. Such a great idea!]
I WANT TO GO TO THERE
[This one I pinned for sheer nostalgia's sake. The good ol' Maid-Rite, possibly the most famous building in my hometown of Greenville, Ohio. People crave these loose-meat sandwiches like a drug (notice the line of care on the street? The line for the drive-thru is rarely less than five cars deep at any time of day). And their peanut-butter milkshakes are probably the best I've ever had (and I'm not just being a homer when I claim this). Best of all (though, depending on who you ask, possibly grossest of all)? Those little speckles around the building? That's gum. Thousands and thousands of pieces of gum have been affixed to the Maid-Rite's famous "gum wall." If you've been in Greenville and haven't put gum on the wall, well.... then you really haven't been to Greenville at all.]
There are plenty more where these came from! To see everything I pin, all week long, follow me on Pinterest.
