Rain Rain

I feel the same way.

It looks so pretty from our window.
I finally made some awesome guacamole! We ate it all up WHILE we made Spinach & Tuna Cannelloni for dinner.
Little Nutella has been hibernating all day long which means she'll be up all night.
I swear I don't treat her like a baby... she's a hamster. (a baby hamster)


Not really sure. I have been so bored today!
Not even Nutella wants to play.

My Barn

Well...mine for a day!
I really want to FILL this space.

I really would like to use fabric (but not too much) and do something something similar to this...

I'm worried the beams are way too high and it'll be difficult to get it all out of there at the end of the night, ya know?

Another worry of mine is the stone walls.
How in the world do I put anything on those walls? I love this barn and I WILL figure this out.  (or someone will tell me the answers!!!)

Remember Paris

Drinking coffee reminds me of France now. We did drink it just about every day.
Look how unstylish I dressed when I was in Paris! (blue converse)
I was comfy though.

We had some good news a few days ago that Ryan's sister is having a BOY! Aww a little french baby boy.
I keep having lots of happy baby dreams. I think I'm freaking Ryan out a little! I'm definitely not having babies any time soon. I think it was just the news about his sister and...maybe all the Ricki Lake shows lately.

His & Hers.
Ryan is working from home today and made me breakfast. This is all I need for breakfast.
 He needs to start working from home more often, foreal.

OH  OH the hamster has a name. First it was Chiquita..
then Ketchup
now Nutella!
I think Nutella fits.
Yeah we just started naming things in front of us.
Ryan says he's still going to call her Sabertooth. :|
Oh hail no.

Our new dizzy Ikea duvet and pillow cases. I like em.
I think we bought one size too big though..but they were on sale so we'll "make it work!"

I still love pizza

We made some yummy pizza last night.
Peppers, spinach, onions and parmesan chicken.

Father's Day

There's Dad waaay before he had any idea he'd be a dad.
Thank you for everything you've done for us. We love you!

Happy Father's Day!


We made a brief appearance at the Southampton Kite Festival today. So cool, really.
They had millions of kites for sale and even a kite workshop for the kiddies.

Synchronized kite flying to the Foo Fighters - Learn to Fly!!

Oh...what typical English weather.

Baby girl

There she iiiis. The first time she poked her head out of her little travel box into her new home.
Ryan knows how much I really want a dog but unfortunatly we can't have anything bigger than a hamster in this place.
So we got one!
She still doesn't have a name yet, any suggestions?

New furry friend

Hmmm....what could it be?? :O

Friday, June 19, 2009


Currently listening to over and over again:
La Roux - Bulletproof
The Gossip - Yr Mangled Heart
Missing Persons - Walking in LA
Fever Ray - When I Grow Up
B52's - Mesopotamia
The Ting Tings - Impacilla Carpisung

AND of course Deerhoof!!
Probably one of my favorite bands live. They are so fun and wacky and I love it!!!
Who says wacky???
I think I told my brother he was "fly" last night. I need to get with the times man. 
That's old too.

Expensive taste

I'm surprised the lens didn't crack from my Haribo ring BLING.

I <3 Ikea sales



Ahh. :)
Thank you boyfriend for putting our first piece of furniture together - together!

Potential Vases

Potential vases for centerpieces? Potential colors in color palette?
It's going to be mismatchy because we found these at car boot sales and antique shops but I like that.
I'm kind of loving the idea of having little touches of art nouveau.
I like this but should I follow the rules of colors for springtime weddings?
There will be lots of lavender outside in the gardens so I wanted to go for purples or wine colors.
I'm so clueless about weddings. Any advice?

Remembering Paris

Wedding Planning

So far we've got our eyes set on a special venue.
 I have to check their availibility for June and hopefully we can put the deposit on it within a month or so
I've finally decided on the K. Brunini twig ring.
I'm having trouble deciding on one color palette. Do brides usually choose their favorite colors? (apparently I have a lot)
Planning this wedding is going to be hard once I fly back to Florida.
Planning a wedding...over the ocean.
Here's my inspiration board so far...

Bridal Gown - Claire Pettibone
Art - Alphonse Mucha
Flower Arrangement - Saipua
Venue - Tythe Barn at Priston Mill

I've been collecting pictures of anything I like so I dont know where some of these photos came from.
If you do let me know and I'll post the credits below!

Sunday lovely Sunday


One of the prettiest days this year.
We woke up early, found a few gems at the car boot sale then we were off to Pickwell Farm.
I loved picking our own fruits and veggies! I can't wait to have a garden.
We can't stop thinking about it.

Friday, June 12, 2009

Hoping to have a good weekend.
We're going to Pickwell Farm to pick strawberries and to car boot sales.
I've never been to garage sale type things here!(Don't forget Father's Day is almost here.)

How would you describe pink?

Wiki says:

"Pink is the taste of cherry cotton candy."
"Pink is the taste of original bubble gum."
"Pink is the way you feel when you love someone."
"Pink is fuzzy socks and lollipops."


Miniature glass animals and babushkas, cuuute.
What a booth!

Ring Hunt

Did a little ring shopping yesterday in Winchester.
I've been on the lookout for art deco inspired rings but I didn't expect to come across any unless we found them on the internet.
I did really like these floral bands by Ungar and Ungar.

Here is a closer photo of the first ring.

(photo from

Very girly and just enough sparkles.
You can't really see it in the picture but I really like the mill-graining. (Is that rignt? Sorta learning new ring terms.)

If I could wear any rings forever they'd be Cathy Waterman's.
