So Very Cute

I first saw these baking cups over at I Suwannee. My sister is considering cupcakes for her wedding, and I just think these would be adorable.

Loft Love

images via Canadian House & Home, August 2009

This is Sabrina Linn's Toronto loft. It's pretty fantastic. My favorite part is her bathroom. The cabinet hardware, the mirrored toe kick, that rug. It's totally girly and glam and I love it.

So True

This one made me laugh

Did you know about this blog, Quotes on Design? So much fun to read. Some quotes are inspiring, some thought provoking, some just make me laugh (or cry, depending on the kind of day I'm having).

Hitting the road in style.

Someday I would love to have an Airstream trailer. I would probably buy an older one and fix it up, because I can't quite imagine spending $49,066 on this one from DWR. Perfect accommodations for those summer music festivals, right?

Famous People's Places

Sarah Jessica Parker's Dining Room

Cynthia Rowley's Living Room

Nanette Lapore's Bedroom

Candace Bushnell's Living Room

This post started with me looking for the top pic of Sarah Jessica Parker's weekend home. It was in Elle Decor a few years ago, and I have always quite liked it - especially the mismatched dining chairs all painted black. I found the pic as part of a slideshow of Elle Decor's Stylemakers. These other rooms I thought were rather lovely too. They say money can't buy taste, so either these ladies already had it or they're handsomely paying someone who does.

So Cute

Gosh I love these "tini tables"! I just spotted them over at Design Sponge. Good little side tables like these aren't always easy to find, I find. They are made by a company called oomph and they come in a few shapes and 15 colors. Fun Fun.

Nice Gifts + Bad Pottery

My sister bought me this little tray in London. I found the perfect spot for it on my dresser. And the wooden box was my Mom's when she was a kid. The ceramic bowl is one of my sad attempts from the pottery class my best friend and I took a few years ago. She was a much better pot-thrower than I was. She'll try to deny it but it's true.

Stoke Place

Stoke Place is the "Hotel of the Month" over at Living Etc. I can understand why. The decor is kinda edgy and quirky, but in a homey, cozy kind of way you don't see in a lot of boutique hotels. As the article says, you'll be "busy stealing the rest of the hotel's style." I concur.

How cute is this place?

Cupcake Royale is an adorable little bakery-cafe in Seattle I just read about here. I don't have any trips to Seattle planned, but if you do it certainly looks worth checking out, don't ya think?

Oh how I want.

I consider myself a pretty crafty girl. So this craft/tool station from Craftynest has me drooling. I could be so organized if I had a station like this. If only I had space for a station like this.

Small Spaces

Canadian House & Home has a photo gallery of small space solutions on their website. These pics are my favorite of the bunch. Check out the rest here.

I'm not really a bath person, but if I had this bathroom and that tub I think I could become one. Easily.

Tape Crazy

images via happy tape

Just look at all this tape! I knew this solid colored stuff existed, but I had no idea there were so many fun patterns too! Where was this stuff back in the day when I used to make bikinis for my Barbies out of duct tape? I have always had a thing for tape - I don't really know why. So this makes me very happy! Get it here.
