my paper heart

aw, 'Paper Heart' is super sweet. it's a story/documentary about a girl who has turned into a love sceptic. she interviews lots of people about their opinions on the matter. it's fun to hear the different things people have to say about love and what it means to them.
it made me feel lucky to have benji and our love we share for eachother. i guess when you have love, it's easy to forget that not everyone does.

oh christmas tree, of all the trees most lovely

in the spirit of the season i thought i would share with you all a few darling christmas trees.
a huge fan of red, i am not. i will say it works very well on this tree though. a monochromatic color scheme always gives a nice pop. i am featuring quite a few table top trees. i must have been subconciously aware of my teeny tiny living quarters while i was searching for these.

the ornaments are sewn and the original stand has been removed and replaced with a white vase. it's an adorable tree and i love the stand! thanks martha.

this wall mounted tree is such a great idea for anyone living in a tiny apartment with little to no room to spare for a christmas tree (like myself). it's also a great idea for those like me, who love to collect little trinkets and treasures. it really gives them a special place and purpose.

my favorite of them all. house beautiful is responsible for this lovely little tree. i have somehow attained a vast array of purple and pink ornaments and i haven't really known exactly what to do with them until now. this tree makes me feel like purple and pink can be pulled off with class.

i'm really digging the aqua and pink combo on this tree.

i found this tree in martha stewart's Blueprint magazine which is sadly, (gasp) no longer in print as of now.

i am absolutely in love with the girliest of colors at the moment. pale pink is so victorian, vintage, and is just simply pretty.

all that comes to mind when i look at these amazing photos of this bachelorette party is, "why...why didn't I think of that?!"
Bash Eco Events and Yes, Please Designs put together this "Where the Wild Things Are" inspired soiree. they got all dressed up in headdresses and danced the night away around a campfire in the Joshua Tree Desert.
