the sketchbook project.

As if planning/attempting to pay for a wedding isn't enough...

...I just signed up for this.

The Sketchbook Project: 2011

I'm pretty excited.
I chose the "in 5 minutes..." theme.
I don't really know why. But I did.

I'll be in a museum tour! It'll be awesome.

current obsession.

[red] umbrellas.

Perhaps it's because I love the rain.
Perhaps it's because it's Mary Poppin's main mode of transportation.
Perhaps it's because I am drawn to the color red.

I find myself


Artist: Leonid AfremovI can't even begin to express my love for this. There are a lot similar to this one. They will probably get their own post someday. I think this is beautiful.

Just another reason to love winter.

Everything about this.

A lovely Etsy find.
How precious. Early Christmas, anyone?

This was from Google Images and although there is no red, there is so, so much in this I adore.
Daywear and bubble umbrellas? Yes, please.

Whoops. Here's some more.

It's going to be a busy week.

(aka OnDemand because I don't have Showtime...)

I might be a addicted.
What show are you looking forward to?

current obsession.

One of THE most useful items to not be ashamed to own many of: mason jars.

As if I need to explain myself.

These first few photos come from here.

What would YOU use them for?
They may or may not be a part of my wedding.

is anybody there?

I feel like nobody reads this.

So I ordered invitations on Sunday. I'm trying to get them out by the end of the month because that will be the three month mark and that's when The Knot tells me to send them out. I've lately been second guessing pretty much everything about the wedding, except for the groom :)

On another note, an infomercial came on the other night (don't judge me), this was the second time I saw it . . . and it was confirmed that I had to have it! So in a few weeks I will be the proud OCD owner of the Wonder File.

On another note, I am super happy about this new background I found - and it has tissue puffs! I am becoming obsessed with them! I've only made one myself... and it may or may not be hanging in my room.

If you are one of few (if any!) who find themselves reading this, please leave a comment and share some blog-o-sphere love! I will leave you with this:

the second of my wildflowers collection.
you are the first to see it! you should consider yourselves so lucky ;)

two complaints.

1a) I don't know how to make my own blog background and have to have other pre-made ones.
1b) Sometimes they just go away and then you have to find a new one.
2) I feel like everyone is judging every move I make regarding my wedding. MY wedding. Everybody calm down, it will happen how it happens.

Now, to cheer up this post and make me feel better about life:

I entered my first blog contest on this lovely site.

It's for a $100 shopping spree that I will use to spoil my lovely flower girls in my wedding!
(and maybe I'll find some things for my bridesmaids as well.)

I hope I win :)


Apparently I didn't win. Nobody notified me. Haha.
BUT I did end up buying two GINORMOUS white daisies... which may or may not appear in my wedding... if they don't take over the thing.

this. is. beautiful.

a fellow portlander.

showing love
to the wonderful
city of roses.

i likes yous.

something precious I stumbled upon today. I can't remember where :(
If you know, I'll add the source.

blog stalking.

Well, I'm at it again!
I love reading blogs.
They lead me to great places.

Where I find things like this:

At this magical place, you click on the 'art' on the walls, takes you to the artist and then you can go from there! Click to go there!

I'll leave you with this lovely.
