A New Etsy Love

Hi, there!  My apologies for the absence over this past year.  A lot of life has happened- new job, new city, another bar exam, etc.  So needless to say, the blog was put on the backburner.  I hope to be back more routinely now. 

Today, I wanted to share a new paper goods shop I recently discovered on Etsy called Stately Made.  This cute little spot is run by my co-worker's dear friend, Jordan Hughes, who also happens to be a Birmingham native.  I learned about Jordan on Valentine's Day when my colleague received Jordan's beautiful card in the mail.  And of course, her handwritten note on the back was just stunning.  She has such talent!  Here are a few of her other paper goodies currently up for grabs:


I think the last one is my absolute favorite!!  I'm a sucker for anything Southern! 

If you are interested in seeing more of Jordan's work, visit her blog and be sure to follow her on Instagram.  Jordan also offers custom calligraphy and hand lettering services here!

A Giveaway

One of my favorite bloggers, Laurel-Dawn of Abode Love, recently started selling her beautiful artwork online here.  And my gosh, her pieces are absolutely stunning!  In fact, she's currently designing my daughter's room and my fingers are crossed that I'll be able to incorporate something of her's in there!  Lucky for me (and you), LD is having a giveaway over at Lindsay's blog, Sadie+Stella.  You can win one free print from her shop, or you have the option of getting a $65 credit towards one of her commissioned pieces.  This awesome giveaway last's until Monday, November 12th at midnight.  Hurry on over to win yourself some lovely eye candy!  Good luck!

Pinterest Party

Lately, I have been seeing the most enchanting tablescapes and get-togethers on Pinterest.  Whether a high-noon tea party, small gathering in the garden, or a midsummer night's dream dinner with friends, I'd RSVP to any of them:

Wouldn't you want to attend one of these fabulous fĂȘtes?  Or perhaps you'd like to play hostess.  
If so, Annemarie's got some great tips for planning your own soiree.  Check them out here!

What's Your Color?

If you know me at all, you know that I love color.  Lots of it!  So, when I came across Paper Source's Colorscope Palette, I was immediately enthralled.  To form the Colorscope, Paper Source took their rainbow of signature hues and translated them into personality types, the idea being that the color you're most attracted to will match your persona.   Before I get to my results though, you should try it out!  And don't cheat!  Make sure to focus on the colors before reading their descriptions. 

Here's a closer view for readability:

Which color(s) stood out to you?  Do you think the description matched your personality?

In the Kitchen with Jacob: S'More, Please!

Sady here.  Jacob is literally in the kitchen now cooking a delicious dinner for us (recipe for which he will post next week.)  So, I have decided to share a yummy treat with you guys instead.  Neopolitan. Smores.  Yep, one's good enough on its own, but the combination of the two is just divine!  Here goes...

Rose Vanilla Marshmallows (or simply substitute plain pink and white ones from your local grocer)
- Sea Salt Dark Chocolate Bar from here, but these are great too! 
- Graham Crackers, see below

Place marshmallow and chocolate square on one graham cracker.  Toast them in the oven until golden and gooey.  Top with another cracker, and you've got a pink, white, and chocolate extravaganza for your taste buds! 

 Of course, store-bought graham crackers taste just as good.  This is simply a fancy option : )
