{Bunny} Parade

In honor of Easter (an my pet rabbit from childhood, RIP Ruby) I thought it would be fun to do a parade about BUNNIES!! I found the cutest images from We Heart It

Oh, and there are a few Easter pictures sprinkled throughout! ENJOY!

This one totally reminds me of my rabbit Ruby! She was the sweetest pet...she had ruby red eyes, hence the name!

Love the style here!

Awwwww, if they don't make you go 'awww' I don't know what will!

I don't know what is going on here exactly, but I love the idea of bunnies being little sugar cubes!

I want to cut them into paper dolls!
So funny!

So sweet!
This is just so cool!
I love any photo with red shoes! I am a sucker.

Pretty bunny family!

Easter candy and jelly beans and eggs....they all go with bunnies, right?

Chocolate bunnies are so pretty!

I don't know what this has to do with bunnies or Easter...but I like it!

Pretty bowl filled with pretty goodies!
I love, love, love this photo!
Hand drawn eggs--I love it!

Things I am loving right now!

Happy Tuesday, can you believe March is almost over????

I thought it would be fun to create a post with some of the things I am loving right now!

1. My favorite blush ever
This blush from Clinique is my absolute favorite blush in the world. Not only is it beautiful when it is brand new, it is also beautiful whenever I wear it...and it last for a really long time!

2. Dry Shampoo
Batiste dry shampoo is my new favorite thing. I started out with the original scent and now I am using the blush version. I like them both equally! This stuff comes in a 5 oz. spray can and it only costs $ lasts for several weeks and at least a dozen uses, probably more!

I decided to try it after I got bangs. My bangs seemed to get greasy looking after a day and I didn't want to take the time for a full shampoo. Just spray this stuff on and brush through actually makes my hair clean! The roots look a little powdery sometimes, but only I notice and it looks way better than grease-ball head. I have saved so many hours that I normally would've been showering, blow-drying and re-styling.
I love it!

3. My Vintage Brooch Collection
Since style school I have been on the lookout for vintage brooches...under $10!
A local shop has a wonderful assortment so I buy at least one every time I go. Not only are they pretty to wear, they spruce up by jewelry tray too! Yay for spring flowers!

4. Pretty sun glasses
I used to be an all-black-sun-glass-girl but not anymore! I love all styles and colors!! I can't wait for summer....*sigh*

5. My coffee table book.
I created a journal for my coffee table and I have filled it with fun things that aren't quite right for a regular scrapbook. I photograph a lot of random things and i rip things out of magazines...this gives me a place to put them. Oh, and I am working on a will show some of the other things I have been putting in my coffee table book! You will love it!

6. My Instax Mini
Seriously, I love this camera. It is a bit bulky to haul around but I love, love, love the photos it takes. I can't wait to create some cool wall art with them!

That is all for now!  I hope you are having a great week!!! I have been visiting my mom in the hospital and trying to get some exercise, so I haven't had a chance to do much crafting....I am feeling really anxious to make something cuuuuute!

Check back Thursday (April Fool's Day!) for my first guest blogger post!! Its not too late to participate if you are interested, just email me!
p.s. all the photos in this post are by me!

Style Sunday {5}

Chantal Goya is another French singer, actress and ye-ye girl of the 1960s. I absolutely fell in love with these photos of this brunette beauty from

I think Chantal's sweet girl-next-door images contrast nicely with the uber sexy Brigitte Bardot.

Like Chantal, Brigitte was a French singer and an actress, but she was also a fashion model and animal rights activist. Bardot has many contributions to fashion (and in her later years, she has many strong political opinions, but we won't get into that here!) Most notably, the Bardot neckline (exposing both shoulders) was named after her, she helped make the beehive hairstyle popular and also influenced the popularity of the bikini as a popular choice for women's swimwear.

She was even the subject of an Andy Warhol painting.

I found the most beautiful photos from her career on Last.Fm

Desert Song {Inspired}

I am in love with this artwork from Geninne's Art Blog!
It is called Desert Song.
I have been inspired by all things 'desert' this year.

I had the most amazing time in Arizona last week....taking a Ranger ride 30 miles on a trail through the desert was the highlight of my trip.

The beautiful views made me want to be like Georgia O'keeffe.....taking an old Model A into the desert to paint on a giant canvas all day.
