Happy Tape

I have recently discovered Japanese washi paper tape. It comes in all of these great colors and for a while you could only purchase through sellers on etsy. Well, a website has now opened that sells this tape in the US! Happy Tape opened up in the past couple of months and I want to buy every roll they have. I think I'll have to settle for a box of spring pack. Aren't these the best for craft projects?

Small Space Gardens

Just saw this over at Apartment Therapy and it gives me hope for my new small space garden (pictures soon). I really enjoyed looking at these.

Hammerpress Invites

I saw these Hammerpress invites last week over at 100 Layer Cake and absolutely love them. If I ever get married, I'm modeling mine after these!

Have a great weekend!

This American Life poster

I don't know about you, but I'm a big fan of NPR's This American Life (TAL) and when I heard they were doing a LIVE broadcast in theatres I was so excited to go and see Ira Glass on the big screen (April 23rd).

While I was researching getting tickets, I noticed on their website that they had special screen print posters made in honor of the show. The posters are done by artist Travis Bone and I've been looking at his website and he is a great graphic artist. The TAL website also has a link to show Travis printing the posters in his workshop.

Rehearsal Dress

As we get closer to my cousin's wedding, I have been in search for a dress to wear at the rehearsal and dinner. These dresses from Anthropologie have caught my eye and I wish it was in my budget to purchase one.

I believe I will wear a dress that I already have that looks very similar to this one above!

British Men. What else is there to say about them but that they're charming and have a great accent. Here are a few of my favorites to ease you into the weekend. Enjoy!

Wedding First Dance

If you do decide on doing a first dance at your wedding, you have to see these videos. This is the cutest couple that I have seen featured over at A Cup of Jo. Smitten has just posted the best first dance videos here and also a dance that the bride did with her bridesmaids.

Wrapping Papers

I absolutely love all of the downloadable templates that the Martha Stewart website has available for various projects. I just downloaded these great black and white wrapping papers that I would love to use one day.

You can find some of their most popular clip-art and downloadable projects here.

Lost in Austen

Today is a day I've been waiting for! Lost in Austen is finally being released on DVD in the US! If you haven't seen this recent take on Jane Austen's classic Pride and Prejudice, then hop on over to the British website and sneak a peek at the preview. Can't wait to get it home and watch the whole thing!

Pink Bouquets

I've been looking through pale pink bouquets lately on the Martha Stewart website to get some inspiration for my cousin's wedding. She is using pale pink peonies in her bouquets, which will be gorgeous. Here are a bunch that I found that I loved.

Bridesmaid's Jewelry

As I've been getting ready for my cousin's upcoming wedding, I've been looking at different jewelry and trying to decide what to wear with our simple, pale pink dresses. I've found a couple of options on etsy that I really like. Here are some of my favorites.

A Special Day

Today is my birthday! I'll be turning another year older today and even though I'm not that old, I feel like I'm getting older every year. As friends and family grow up around me, it makes me glad to have them all in my life. Today I hope I receive a bouquet like this one I saw over at Once Wed via {frolic!}. Happy Wednesday!

Wedding Shoes

As you may remember, I mentioned awhile back that I was going to be in my cousin's wedding in May. Now that it's fast approaching, you'll notice more wedding posts on here as we gear up to celebrate her marriage. I recently received my bridesmaid's dress and have taken it to get altered and have purchased my shoes as well. Here are my final three pairs of shoes that I chose from. A note - our dresses are a pale pink with a rose colored waist band.
