LURVE LOAVE LUFF



Let's get right to it, shall we?
Here's what made me feel all twitterpated, smile contagiously, giggle uncontrollably, etc.

  • Art by Caroline Kaufman // Caroline's work is a mood. Let the bright colors set the tone for the weekend.
  • Heart Watercolor Set // Isn't this paint set darling? I adore all of the products from Kid Made Modern.
  • Musee Bath Bombs // Now I know where I'll be buying gifts for everyone in the future. These are dreamy!
  • Agatha Puffy Washable Rug // OMG! Can you even imagine this rug in a playroom? Bonus: it's washable.
  • You Got This // Because I think we could all use a sunny reminder like this these days. Am I right?
  • Big Smile Onesie // What's not to love? Bobo Choses has some of the happiest designs around. 
  • Sofia Wavy Wall Mirror // I'm smitten with this mirror. I keep wondering WHERE I could put it??
  • Vintage Cotton Love Tee // Love is one of Max's power words, so this could be a school uniform.
  • Cashmere Cardigan // The boyfriend style is my favorite; this must be the "Cardi-V" version. #ilikeit
  • Havana Pom Luna Earrings // Jenna Lyons says "Don't fear the fancy." I guess I'll pair these with sweats. Ha!
  • Striped Midi Sac // Come to mama! No but seriously, this bag is like my blog in purse form. It's a need.
  • Award Ribbon // Anyone hitting the pandemic wall? Perhaps we should start passing these ribbons out?!
  • Webbing Belt // This belt reminds me of old school J.Crew. I'm here for reversible grosgrain belts. Bring it!
  • Linda Farrow Rectangular Frames // I watched Stylish on HBO Max again and I'm pining for specs again.
  • Color Wheel Puzzle // With an aunt like moi, this color wheel is going to be a necessary gift for Poppy.
  • Satin Bow // Get those chic Jennifer Behr vibes but for one hundred dollars cheaper. What a bargain!
  • Mom Ring // Maman but make it fashion. This would be such a thoughtful gift for a new mother.
  • Yellow Coin Clutch // Winter blues be gone. This coin purse doubles as Vitamin D. Talk about a happy hue!
  • Ew David Dickey // This gave me a giggle. Who knew a dickey would suddenly be on my radar?! Ew. 

Have a fabulous weekend, m' dears! Make it count.

LURVE LOAVE LUFF



Wow! It's been a while. Let's get right to it, shall we?
Here's what made me feel all twitterpated, smile contagiously, giggle uncontrollably, etc.

  • Rainbow Azalea // Punchy artwork that gets a seal of approval from THE Nathan Turner. Need I say more?
  • Peridot Heart Studs // It's not "technically" my birthstone, but we don't have to tell that to Opal. Mmkay?!
  • Dotted Terracotta Planter // Patiently (or as patient as I can be) waiting on this pot to be in stock again.
  • Canary Yellow Shoes // Ann Mashburn is one of my many muses. I can totally see her wearing these!
  • Scalloped Jute Rug // I desperately want to find a place for this CUSTOMIZABLE cutie in our house. That's right, CUSTOMIZE! The color and size selection is impressive. You can thank me later for this Etsy treasure.
  • Orange Table Piece // Australian artist, Alice Oehr, draws for business and pleasure. Her shop is dreamy! 
  • W&P Porter Bag // I'm a big fan of W&P products. I'm interested to see how this compares to Stasher Bags.
  • Oyster Petite Leather Wallet // I troll Leif shop often and naturally the color of this wallet caught my eye!
  • Long-Sleeve Slub Cotton Tee // This has been my go-to lately. You can't beat stripes and it layers nicely.
  • Quilted Field Jacket // Gah! I keep kicking myself for not buying this when it was on major sale a few weeks ago. The clover color is a slam dunk for me. Not to mention, the weight is perfect for the in-between weather that seems to be the norm around here. What's a girl gotta do to get a promo, J.Crew?!
  • You Got This // You're going to freak when you see this selection of free wallpapers by Poppy Deyes.
  • Full of Heart Notebook // This would be an adorable Valentine's Day gift. What the heck, treat YOURSELF!
  • Stabilo 3-in-1 Pencils // I've been a die hard Stabilo fan since grade school, so the thought of a 3-in-1 colored pencil that combines elements of a wax crayon AND watercolor paint is absolutely insane to me. This purchase could totally be justified for virtual school. *Adds to shopping cart and hits purchase.*
  • Plateau Sweetgrass Basket // You know it's that neon portion that got me good on this one. Holy swoon!
  • Haden Silt Green Drip Coffee Maker // We're not going anywhere, so we might as well bring that cozy coffee shop vibe home. Am I right?! I look forward to my morning coffee ritual as soon as I wake up.
  • Partners Coffee // But seriously though, how YOU brewin'? I'm partial to the Elevate and El Ramo blends.
  • Geometric Triangle Hook Pillow // Not another throw pillow... But this one is in the shape of a TRIANGLE!

Have a fabulous weekend, m' dears! Make it count.

Wow! It's been a while. Let's get right to it, shall we?
Here's what made me feel all twitterpated, smile contagiously, giggle uncontrollably, etc.

  • Emotional Barometer // Aesthetically pleasing AND useful, this would be a great gift —especially in 2020.
  • Ribbon Bow Earrings // Festive, flirty, and fun! I snagged these at Madewell for less than twenty bucks.

  • The Campbell Beanie // I love the story behind this brand. It's a perfect gift for anyone on your list.

  • The Clean Deo // Have you tried Beautycounter's deoderant? Thoughts? I've attempted the natural route and it's never really panned out. Ha! That being said, this cute packaging and color might sway me.
  • Face Modern Vase // A stunning find from Etsy, it's sure to be a Christmas gift favorite. Or, treat yourself!
  • The Adventure Challenge // A brilliant and simple concept! Make memories and document them.
  • Cable-Knit Sweater // I got this around my birthday on super sale and now I want all the colors!
  • Vintage Wide Velvet Bow // The price here is a bit steep for a barrette, but maybe it could be recreated?!
  • Satin Bow Mules // All dressed up with nowhere to go... That seems to be the theme of 2020, am I right?
  • Red Heart Socks // Mini Rodini's line of baby girls' clothing and accessories is even cuter than I anticipated.
  • Love Tote // For every tote purchased, one is donated to a Healthcare Hero at an impacted hospital.
  • Bowie Mask // Why not make a colorful statement with your daily mask? CV, you had me with the lips!
  • Forever Flower // This wooden cutout makes having Peonies around all year a reality. Sign me up.
  • Mr. Happy Mug // Start your day with a smile! I wouldn't mind a stack of these cuties in the cupboard.
  • The Type Set Co. // Get your font on with these reimagined alphabet magnets and letterboards!

LIFE'S LITTLE DETAILS


"THE DETAILS ARE NOT THE DETAILS. THEY MAKE THE DESIGN." — CHARLES EAMES

Happy Thursday, m' dears! It's been awhile since I've dumped a load of Delaware deetz on the blog. Then again, with alliteration like that, it's probably for the best. Ha Ha! The photos shared in today's post are a handful of my favorites from the past six months—bright spots amid the pandemic mundane. Sure there's been Tik-Tok coffee, patches of grey hair, and loaves of banana bread (that feels like FOREVER ago), but there's also been toads, tattoos, 350 Peloton rides (which makes me really proud!), plot twists in Flyboy's future employment (spoiler alert: we're not getting out of the USAF as we'd intended...yet), an impromptu trip to meet darling Poppy in August, and Max starting Kindergarten. If you follow along on Instagram, you've more than likely seen most of these images; however, I decided there should be a place for them to live here as well. This year has been a doozy for a variety of reasons, but it deserves to be documented. The imperfectly perfect resides here, just as it always has. With the bad comes the good, but I must say my perspectacles are looking rather optimistic today. You see, it's my 35th birthday, and if you told me six months ago that this dumpster fire of a year would result in me getting to share the day surrounded by all of my favorite people, I probably would have rolled my eyes and responded with a dismissive "Fat chance!" Because that's how a lot of this year has felt, but not today. Nope. My sister, her boyfriend, and my niece are on their way to D.C. for an extended weekend at my parents' house. Squee! Together we'll watch Flyboy and his bestie run the Marine Corps Marathon virtually, eat lots of good food and drink festive libations, watch the new version of The Witches on HBO Max (the original was our fave!), and squeeze in lots of cuddles with Poppy. So many of our plans (just like the rest of you) haven't amounted to much this year, so I'm beyond grateful for the opportunity to safely come together and get a little quality time with the ones I love. In a time as brutiful as 2020, we're all looking for ways to adapt to this new normal and to do so responsibly, but our vision and priorities couldn't be clearer. There's so much to be thankful for when we slow down and focus on the little moments that matter. It's always better when we're together.


Enough about me, how the heck are YOU? Have you had a chance to hug your loved ones yet?

Wow! It's been awhile. Let's get right to it, shall we?
Here's what made me feel all twitterpated, smile contagiously, giggle uncontrollably, etc.


My deepest apologies. I'm still getting used to Max's hybrid Kindergarten schedule. I really hope to blog more often than I have over the past six months. Yikes! Perhaps a life update will be published next week? Stay tuned. 


In the meantime, have a fabulous weekend, m' dears! Make it count.
