if i could fit...
...into this teeny-tiny vintage dress, I wouldn't think twice about swooping it up. Oh, the satin piping, tiny buttons, and simple bow... it's 1950's perfection! And on sale. ($39)

ten images of inspiration : pieces of the past.
There are plenty of modern things I absolutely adore but at heart, I am much more of a vintage gal (and by old/vintage I mean pre-1965, not pre-1995). Nothing seems to get my heart swooning more than antique treasures and curiosities... old letters, china, photographs, tiny figurines, etc. I've always been told that I should have been born in another era.

the way into my heart...
...is with a gorgeous pie plate, just like this one. For a baker like myself who believes pie can solve major problems, this might be one of the most beautiful things I have seen. ($38)

Being a deep lover of kitties and film photography, this is by far my new favorite tumblr. "girls & cats, cats in soft focus, cats on film, dream cats." A dream-come-true for me.

a love of oxfords.
Why oh why are these vintage oxfords two full sizes too big for me? They are the kind of classic shoes I dream of. Becky always finds the best stuff. ($40)

interior inspiration : on a farm, in the country.
Yes, I'm still totally on the farm/country kick. I think the summer does it to me... I get romantic images of picking berries and listening to ukelele & drinking sweet tea on a big wooden porch. Maybe I'm just a little ole country girl at heart.

labels: paper goods, thought of the day
I cannot even tell you how happy I am that summer has finally arrived. It happens to be my favorite season (no, not just because I am named after it)- I just soak in the warm weather, tiny vacations, cold drinks, and lazy days. Tonight I will celebrate the solstice with homemade margaritas on the back porch. Anyone else?

...is the word I would use to describe the photography of Ezgi Polat I have featured her work in my collections many times, but thought she deserved her own little spotlight since she is one of my favorite photographers these days. Dreamy, I tell you.
