create: vintage tea tin lighting

I love learning about creative ways to repurpose everyday items and today's example is no exception. To create these shabby chic lights all you need are: tea tins, wire, low wattage lamp kits, pretty crystals, and a drill. I especially adore the light-colored middle one, the pattern on it is gorgeous!

something else: wooden tableware...and it's eco-friendly too!

These are such a great alternative to plasticware for those who don't want the added cost of renting forks and spoons and knives. Especially when you have much more significant things you'd like to spend your money on! Best of all, these are birch wood and therefore 100% biodegradable and compostable. I could easily see these in a lovely rustic outdoor wedding.

pretty little things: hello! lucky letterpress

I recently received some beautiful letterpress cards from Hello! Lucky a few weeks ago. One set was a retro cherries design with matching cherry red envelopes. The Antoinette set was a Tiffany blue intricate flourish pattern with a pair of peacock feathers in the corner. I love letterpress and here are a few of my favourite Hello! Lucky designs.

Woodland Damask. Gorgeous detail, love the little love birds.

Orchid. As elegant and classic as orchids always are.

New York City Skyline. Very modern, love the font.

something old, something new

Alas, it has been some time since I've posted something old and something new, but I've been waiting for the perfect things that really stand out to me. That being said, I found the prettiest vintage garter and raw silk bolero on Etsy that I simply had to share with you!!
