For some reason I have only been posting on Fridays this month. Hah! Not sure why, but I guess it's better than nothing. The Husband took a personal day for Monday, so I am pretty happy for a 3 day weekend with him. We also have our nephew's birthday party on Saturday - definitely looking forward to that as well!

Here are a couple of things I have been excited about this week-

I mean really. How pretty is this?!

I have been shopping on Amazon and Etsy quite a bit lately, and I recently purchased this Laduree pastry book. It just came in the mail this morning, and I am just in love with it. The cover is some sort of velvet/suede material, and has gold trim. Such a pretty little book. I can't wait to make macarons and other goodies from these recipes!

I've also decided that after seeing how stunning this book was that I needed the mate to it. The Savory book {this one being the Sucre, of course}. I'll have to order that one soon!
I just love pretty little books..

I also found these on Etsy from a Scottish lady in France. They are vintage copper kitchen canisters with sucre, cafe, and the on them. So pretty! They match our copper pots & pans great.

Bon weekend!

Happy Friday!

From my sweet husband for Valentine's Day! Vintage copper recipe box and chocolate. :-)
Now I need to find some cute recipe cards to go with.

Last week I went for a long overdue haircut - I had 7 inches taken off! It's still long, so I think I want to go back and have another 2-3 inches cut. I'm loving my shorter hair. I can't believe how long it was and I wish I had taken a before/after picture!

Happy weekend!

Happy Friday!

Here are a few things that have made my week a little brighter:

I bought this yesterday actually, and it has become an instant favorite.
It is pure HEAVEN.

 Finally bought the blu ray version of the most magnificent movie ever made,
 in my humble opinion. I could watch it everyday! :-)

Current make up wish list. I definitely have a problem. Yikes.

Child of mine takes everything I own and makes it his.
Including my lap top case. Silly boy.
