peonies + inspiration

Hi again. 

I wanted to share a few bits from my week and mostly just wish you an amazing weekend!


This past Sunday was Mother's Day and I had a few treats, which included beautiful peonies,




a gift of a MAC makeover + makeup (it's like being a kid in a candy store),



...this is MAC's new Baking Beauties Spring/Summer 2013 Collection...so fresh + fun!...

...& a delicious dinner prepared by my very talented + Italian husband, including prosciutto e melone. He wrapped sliced cantaloupe with thinly-sliced prosciutto - Italian ham and then drizzled with balsamic + olive oil, salt + pepper. Such a yummy treat. Here's an instasnap...




...and finally watching my girls jump on the trampoline on a beautiful evening.  Those picture-perfect moments are ones to savor.


During the week when I wasn't transporting or negotiating with my teens, I was working (Post & Gray has their big patiopalooza event this weekend. If you're in Charlotte don't miss it!)...and I managed to do a little playing (checking-out my fave blogs).  I found this gorgeous inspiration at alisaburke...

I wandered over to peoniesandbrass (love her blog + style).


...and found this breath-taking interior via northern light + lonny...




Don't you just want to be there?


Wishing you an inspiring + beautiful weekend!!!

garden party dreams

Are you craving outdoor gatherings & entertaining too? As the weather warms so does my love for patio & porch parties.

I'm over at in-the-gray today, sharing inspiration for life on the outside. Check-out these gorgeous garden stools I just photographed yesterday at Post & Gray...




...And click on this link for outdoor décor ideas.


In addition to blogging & dreaming of the perfect outdoor oasis, I've also been crushing on flowers in fashion, like this beautiful accessory (via shopbando)...

Perfect for a garden party setting, like this favorite image from domino...


Perhaps, with some refreshments, like these amazing-looking melon mojito popsicles...
