It all started with those tiny brass evil eye studs. I started wanting more. They’re so creepy and cute. I didn’t know those could even be a description for something together! I had been dreaming up a pillow version for years now, so maybe a tutorial is in the future! We came back from Cabo San Lucas last week and those blue and white ceramic eyes by Leah Goren remind me of all the pretty pottery they have there. I just can’t get enough of little eyes staring back at me.

What about you? Are you a fan of eyes and eye print?

I will also have a spot in my heart for a break in color and going back to the basics of black and white. You may remember this recent B&W Polka Dot post. Today I’m going more modern graphic with a black and white grid pattern. I love both the square graph paper version and the painterly version like in that cute tea towel.

PS: If you like grids and lists, you’d love this freebie printable! Stay tuned for a fun tutorial with B&W grid soon!

After working many a weekends this month with more to go, A & I have the travel bug like no other. We just want to fly away somewhere and escape for a while. Luckily we have a Mexico trip planned with some of my best pals in August.

You may also not know that I had a really crazy globe collecting phase. It’s over now, but the entire collection is all over the house. It’s kind of ridic. I will always have a soft spot for maps. They are just so interesting and seeing how they’ve changed through the years. So, let’s daydream in maps today! I love that Topshop dress!

If you’re after even more, check out this globetrotting lust list.

PS: I’m trying this new thing with the numbers. Is it easier to find the link you’re looking for?

It’s supposed to finally be heating up here in the Pacific NW and I can’t wait! We’ve been going between sunshine and sprinkles for a few weeks now (I guess because we got let off easy rainwise this spring). My mom is visiting from California first the first time since I bought the house, so it’ll be giggles and sightseeing this weekend. In the mean time, I hope ya’ll are enjoying the weather and if not, maybe indulge in some retail therapy with these items that remind me of hot tropical places.

How are you embracing tropical print?

I’m romanticizing about wearing a wispy red dress like this with an equally stunning floppy hat. Actually pulling it off is another thing, but one can daydream.

What are you pining for most about Spring?

{Lust List} Modern Day Flower Girl

Daydream-In-Color-Lust-List-Flower-Girl

All that’s needed for a modern day flower girl is a playful floral dress (€132), a colorful basket purse ($198), and some lovely blooms that last forever ($16). I’m loving this hand drawn pattern on this hand made dress by La Casita De Wendy. The other things in her shop are also lovely like this cute raffia bag & cookie bag (check out the behind the scenes for her bag collection here)!

We’re off work today enjoying the sunny weather (& picking up some furniture). We’ll also be headed this cooking demo tonight with Seattle’s Tom Douglas. Should be fun!

Do you have plans for this weekend?
