Hooray!

Hello to everyone stopping by from Freckled Nest, Leigh-Ann is super awesome and sweet! And you guys, are so lovely - thanks for all the comments thus far!

I'll take this moment to confess, I have a bit of an online shopping problem. I buy little random things online all. the. time. Ok, maybe not THAT much...but if I haven't received a package in the mail in a while, I get kind of sad! Here are a few things I've bought recently that I love:

This super cute ruffly dress from Delias. I bought it to wear to my cousin's bridal shower this weekend :) I think it needs a cute pair of yellow shoes, don't you?
I thought this plate thing was awesome! One, there's deer on it! Also, Chris is from Michigan. And the color of green is actually really pretty! I haven't found a spot for it yet (since our woodsy room is green, it really won't go there), but I kind of think it's awesome!


Yet another dress I just ordered from Modcloth :) I think it's so cute, I haven't received it yet so hopefully it's worth the money and looks good. I want to wear it to my bridal shower or maybe my cousins wedding. Hmmm...decisions, decisions!



This is actually a panel of fabric! I randomly came across it while fabric browsing, and I bought this panel and was thinking I could frame it for some wall art? I'm not sure what else I could do with it to display the whole thing, it's kind of large.


I found a super good deal on these beautiful Craspedia that you have probablly, like me, been seeing a lot of. I have wanted to incorporate them into our wedding since yellow is one of our colors. I ordered a bunch of them as a test to see how they look, and it far exceeded my expectations so I will definitely be ordering more :)

Yay for Michigan! Although I'm curious what sort of mountainous cliff they have in the background there. We don't have very many of those :)

I can't wait to see what you come up with for the Craspedia!

I have the SAME problem! I am always buying random little things online that I don't need but want or think are cute. If it's a couple of dollars it's okay!...right? haha
