Mildly Obsessed/Rustic Chandeliers.

| DIY, Inspiration, Mildly Obsessed, Vintage, Wedding Ideas

I’m sure the first thing on your mind when you’re planning your wedding isn’t  – ‘What type of chandelier will I have?’.

Lots of venues won’t even allow you to hang things from the ceiling.

But friends, after looking at these pretty hangings, I wanna go back and redo my wedding chandelier situation!

I pretty much want each and every one of these chandeliers to be a part of my life – like right now.

I kinda think 6 is to die for, how about you?

Is there a spot at your venue to do a gorgeous chandelier like one of these? I wanna know in the comments!

Mildly Obsessed: Pennants

| Inspiration, Mildly Obsessed, Vintage, Wedding Ideas

There was a nip in the air yesterday and it got me excited for fall!

With fall comes school. football games + crisp air and I got in the school spirit mood – which explains my recent obsession with pennants.

There are lots of ways you can incorporate pennants into your wedding day – from signage to hanging backdrops or just for fun props.

My favorite is the little hooray one. Too cute!

Love/List: Gold Details

| Inspiration, Love/List, Mildly Obsessed, Organization

I’m in love with gold right now, I want to add little gold details to everything – from outfits to decor to my planner (I have gold striped washi tape + I’m obsessed with it!).

So, when I get my own office space someday, I have no doubt that I’ll be throwing some gold details in there too. Here are some ideas:

I mean, right? I want that quote inlaid in the floor of my office in guilded gold. So beautiful!

Love/List: Tiny Tattoos

| Life, Love/List, Mildly Obsessed

Have I ever told you the story of how I met my husband?

He was in a rock band, and my friend and I were the groupies. We used to follow them around to all of their shows and were even ‘merch’ girls for a of their stops. They were pretty good too – they opened up for Fall Out Boy before they were super big.

Needless to say, I like skinny, grungy boys with tattoos.  Might not be your cup of tea, but I swoon when I see a man with ‘sleeves’ and I think I’ve fallen in love with every member of any band I’ve ever seen live.

I’ve always wanted a tattoo, but my style + obsessions change so often that I’m worried I would get something that I wouldn’t want in 2 years.

I do know one thing though – I want a tiny tattoo.

Something like one of these:

Justin and I are considering getting matching arrow or anchor tattoos on our hands.. they have to be super tiny and cute though!

Do you have a tattoo? Would you ever consider getting matching tattoos?

Mildly Obsessed: Washi Tape.

| DIY, Inspiration, Mildly Obsessed, Wedding Ideas

As obsessed with craft supplies as I am, it’s no surprise that Washi Tape has made it to the top of my list of things to obsess over lately.

Washi Tape is a Japanese tape made from paper, so it’s slightly see through + 100% gorgeous. With hundreds of different patterns and designs to choose from, there are endless ways to use this tape!

I’ve been taping things up everywhere – I love the way it looks!

Isn’t it so delicate + lovely?

These would be the perfect way to seal an envelope and can be used in so many different DIY projects.

Also, if you’re loving the tape strips I added to my layout up there, I got them Pugly Pixel + they are adorable. Go get some for yourself right now!

Mildly Obsessed: Feathers

| Inspiration, Life, Mildly Obsessed, Wedding Ideas

Lately I’ve shared with you some of my current obsessions – arrows, birds + boho – and today’s edition of Mildly Obsessed doesn’t stray to far from those themes.

Feathers have been on my mind, and I’m loving everything about them – especially as details in everyday life.

Here are some of my faves:

Aren’t they lovely? I’m not above tattooing a feather on my body. They are just so beautiful.

Mildly Obsessed: Arrow Typography

| Inspiration, Mildly Obsessed, Wedding Ideas

Ladie (and gentlemen), I have an obsession to confess.

I’m in love with arrows. Bow and arrow arrows – tiny + thinly drawn or incorporated into type.

I gotta admit, it may have something to do with my slight obsession with the Hunger Games… but that’s normal, right?

And I think they could be a super fun thing to incorporate into your wedding day stationary.

How adorable would an arrow motif be? You could carry it throughout your decor by adding arrow touches here and there in your decoration.

Or adding an arrow into your monogram somewhere? Adorable.

So dreamy. I would even get a pretty little arrow tattooed on my body. Love em.

What do you think? Would you use an arrow design in your wedding stationary?

Mildly Obsessed: Paloma’s Nest

| Inspiration, Mildly Obsessed, Wedding Ideas

If you’ve been on any wedding blog in the last few years, you’ve surely come across Paloma’s Nest and their lovely ring bearer bowls and wedding keepsakes.

From their website:

Caroline Colom Vasquez is an artist and designer living in the vibrant city of Austin, Texas. Her brand, Paloma’s Nest, is dedicated to creating Handcrafted Modern Heirlooms – pieces for the home and for the heart.


The Paloma’s Nest collection of bowls, tiles, ornaments and decorative pieces are intended to last for generations, and are thus crafted of the finest natural materials available, including porcelain and clay, wood, paper, and cloth. The inspiration for Paloma’s Nest lies in the purity of the materials used, and the idea that something so simple can be so bold.

I’m in love with the look of her pieces – this past winter I bought an ornament from her and I was giddy when it arrived.

The packaging is absolutely amazing, and the ornament itself was so dainty and gorgeous. I’m in love.

Here are a few of the things Paloma’s Nest offers:

Go to her site now and buy some stuff! You won’t be disappointed 🙂
