farm fresh easter eggs

Happy Friday!

I recently had some fun decorating farm eggs. With a white paint pen, I was able to make simple yet surprisingly pretty Easter eggs.

Wouldn't you love it if all you eggs came like this? I certainly would!

Any fun weekend plans?! I'll most definitely be celebrating some Irish cheer on Saturday. How about you?

Happy Friday! Any fun weekend plans??? I'll be spending all day tomorrow on a service project that my husband has organized. Then hopefully Sunday is relaxing and recoop...preparing for an excellent birthday week!

Leaving you inspired for your weekend with these pretty food illustrations.

I'm needing a little color today as I've spent the last 5 hours researching party concepts and proposals. Gorgeous paintings to browse through here. You won't be disappointed.

And next I need a little computer break...

If I had a chunk of time with nothing to do, I'd like to spend it painting with watercolor. It's always been a favorite medium. And these birch trees are just lovely.

Happy Monday to you. After some relaxing weekend, I am ready to tackle this week. And it doesn't hurt that next weekend includes a holiday...!

I love the messy thread in this wall art. Endless inspiration from the recently discovered Dottie Angel.

Hey there! So my workload is not slowing down as hoped. Sad day. This time last year I quit blogging for 6ish weeks (a pattern perhaps?). Since it pains me to ignore the blog completely, I've decided to go "blogging light" until I can work in the 15+ hrs/wk it takes to generate my own content. Until then I'll feature things that make me SWOON and that simply make the world a lovelier place.

Thank you so much for your understanding! XOXO

Had you seen this lovely print floating around? Now we all know it's true source. And oh how I love Mr. Lewis. If I played the "if you could meet anyone famous" game, I do believe he'd be nearly the top of my list.

Happy May Day! A lovely illustration of spring letters. I love the sweet accents....makes me want to put a bird on something.

Sleeping just a little longer, planning a new project, snuggling, cooking a delicious meal, spending time not doing much....I am so grateful for this season—to bask in the small joys of a slow, simple life.
