Two days ago we walked the aisles of Whole Foods and I put things like baby brussel sprouts and tequila lime seasoning rub in our basket. Justin looked at me across the fish counter with the kind of eyes that just said "really?. But I just shrugged my shoulders and said it made me feel more gourmet.
We perused the bread section, lingered in the cheese section, and ended up buying a tub of dried cranberries. On the way out, I bought myself a bunch of ranunculus. Mostly because I like saying the word ranunculus (OMG, it's so ranunculus!). But also because I said it made our house feel more like home. And spring time. Which I am more than ready for.
When we got home with our two bags of groceries, I took the flowers out of the bag and divided them into two mason jars. Then I tied gold bows around each one and set them out on the table. When I was finished, I smiled. Because it made me feel like Martha. And let's face it, gold bows on mason jars is about as close as I'll ever get.
But hey, you've got to take your wins where you can get em!
And speaking of all things gold, and crafty, and beautiful....we are incredibly honored to have been part of the making of the absolutely jaw-droppingly gorgeous Style Me Pretty Book that came out earlier this year! We were so lucky to work with Abby & her team on all of the DIY projects for the book, so our pictures ended up making up the whole last chapter of the book! We finally slowed down enough to get our hands on a copy this week, and let me tell you this book is perfection. If you haven't grabbed a copy yet, be sure to pick one up!!
And we're actually going to be able to help not just one, but TWO of you get your hands on a copy this week! We have signed copies of the book from Abby herself to give away to two lucky winners. All you have to do to enter is leave us a note in the comment box below saying hi & we'll announce the winners on Friday!! And....GO!
