sweet seersucker.

as most of you know, I'm a sucker for seersucker (haha) and was so excited when Heather, one of the brides I worked with, sent me over a couple of photos from her wedding day.  LOVE the blue and white seersucker paired with the yellow dresses. thank you so much for sharing, Heather! you look beautiful and so do your 'maids!

erin + graham, chobotar ranch in Osoyoos, BC

I love when brides that I've worked with send me over pictures after the wedding. it's always fun to get a glimpse into their big day.  erin is no exception- her wedding was gorgeous and the handmade details that she worked in? amazing! did I mention the burlap?? eek! you guys know that I'm a sucker for rustic/outdoor weddings. :) erika walter of element photography captured it all and if you want to see more (trust me, you do!) head over to one stylish bride's blog.

 (um, she handcrafted all of the bouquets and boutonnieres.  I'm impressed.)

thanks again for sharing, erin! congratulations to you and graham. :)

little man's nursery.

I'm finally getting around to doing a post dedicated to beckett's nursery. I know you all have been on the edge of your seat waiting for it, right? :)  our friend gina happened to be in town visiting and was kind enough to come over and take photos of our sweet boy.  while here she got some great shots of the nursery.  it was a labor of love and I'm so appreciative that I have it captured in it's clean and prettified state. ha! 
the fabric I purchased for the bedding was the starting point for the design of the nursery.  I wanted to keep it clean and simple, leaving the walls white and incorporating pops of color in the decor. 

we bought the dresser from IKEA to use for storage and to serve as mr. man's changing table.  I wrote about our experience of putting that beast together here.  the mobile above the dresser was one that I decided to make myself after coveting similar ones on etsy.  
the pillow cover was made from leftover fabric that I used on his crib bumpers.  the quilt hanging over the chair was a surprise gift from my sister and mom.  without my knowledge, my sister got in touch with Joey and had him send her a few t-shirts and jerseys from his college soccer days and had my mom send her shirts from my high school crew days (I was too busy partying studying in college to continue sports).  she then made the best t-shirt quilt for beckett when my mom was out visiting her this summer.  I have to add that this was her first venture into quilting and it turned out amazing. love you stoopid!
 love this lamp that I found at homegoods almost as much as I love homegoods. seriously, I have an unhealthy obsession with the store. I may or may not go there and buy things just so I have a reason to 'return' them and go again. (cue my husband rolling his eyes at me)
this picture was taken by me and I had to share so I could show off the shelves that my parents made for beckett's wall.  there are three on each side of the windows and showcase all of the books that we've started accumulating for him.  
my favorite little man.
my favorite big girl, and first child. this is now her favorite place in the house to hang out...preferably sans crying baby. the rug I found for a steal on
and I couldn't leave out my sweet big boy. this was as close to being in the nursery as he would go. silly, silly moose. 
last photo by me again. just gives you an idea of the scale of the nursery.
we love this space and Joey and I both agree that it's our favorite room in the house now.  hopefully little man will agree as he gets older.
hope you enjoyed the tour. :)
