Perhaps one of the most romantic textures of all. A nod to femininity and delicacy, quiet sheers are just as soft to the eye as they are to the touch—and so special. Today's post focuses not only on the obvious, but on the gentle nature of love and those special moments—the delicate, transparent nature of it... as seen in a received smile, a few spoken words, a quick touch to the knee, to the arm... And to inspire you, a range of interior and delicious ideas: from water and window covers, robes and ribbons, pillows and slips, to champagne and glass. "Oh, if it be to choose and call thee mine, love, thou art every day my Valentine!" —Thomas Hood / For this moment, for today, for always... wishing you a Happy Valentine's Day!
+ this week's finds: a sweet doll with a pretty white dress / beautiful tabletop pieces created by Donna Karan / a Pink Prairie Barn wedding inspiration board / a divine, rose cake tutorial & one for a delicious dish of coconut crème brûlée —to share or not to share? / darling dresses in mint, white and black to want (& the backs are as pretty as the fronts!) / A new bridal line, live today / some fun tabletop pieces / think pink! / a fun new collection / beautiful notebooks / and lastly, a cheerful handbag & an elegant handbag...
