Follow me to…

February 28, 2013

"follow me to.." photo series by Murad Osmann I don’t know if I’m just feeling really sappy because of the last few weeks being really insane (or  if I’m in denial of being sappy by nature), but I seriously love this “Follow me to..”  series by photographer Murad Osmann. The whole concept of him being lead around the world by his love so endearing, don’t you?

Kind of like a story of how you got to the aisle. You know me, I always have to turn it into something… Screen Shot 2013-02-27 at 6.07.42 PM

I want it all.

chinti and parker spring and sum

In case the title didn’t fully explain it, I want everything in the 2013 Chinti and Parker Spring/Summer collection. Polka dots? Stripes? Colorblock? It just has a my name all over it! I’d wear it all.. at once. Okay not really all at once, that would be too much awesome for one person to handle.

What’s your favorite piece? To be honest, I buy things that I love and then wear the crap out of them until they look like colorful trash bags. Am I the only one?

DIY // Tassel Necklace

February 26, 2013

DIY tassel necklace by sugar and cloth

I’ve been meaning to share the DIY necklaces that we made at the Langford Market event for a few weeks now, but as I’ve whined about already, it’s been a crazy few weeks. I’ll spare you the rest of my sob stories that accompany them, and announce these sweet little tassel necklaces. Better late than never, right?

Materials:

  • Embroidery floss
  • Necklace chain
  • 8mm jump ring
  • 12 mm jump ring
  • Round nose pliers
  • Scissors
  • Bristle brush
  • Ball bottom pendant clamps (online or at JoAnn Fabric)

DIY tassel necklace by sugar and cloth You can cut the tassels as long as short as you’d like but I really prefer the short fat ones, much how I like my pets to be.

DIY Miniature Hanging Garden by Penelope and Pip Now that we’ve got all of our  thousand boxes moved into our new house, I’m on the hunt for home DIY’s to die for. (I thought about making that into an acronym for you, but it’s a little to long winded.)

First up are these stunningly pretty miniature hanging garden planters by Rachael, the DIY genius behind the blog Penelope & Pip. Like I needed another reason to have a girl crush on her..

You can find the full tutorial and photos right here on the Frankie Magazine blog. Wouldn’t these also make really adorable favor cups? You know I would be shoving at least three in my purse!
