fancy fridays numero dos

well, its definitely a TGIF sort of week!
I'm tired from staying up way too late and trying to put my house away.
I'm still dying to get to some crafting, but for now decorating has been satisfying my crafty urges.

I just love to decorate. And re-decorate.
I like to call my current state deja-vu decorating! I'm finding all my treasures that I was separated from for quite some time and falling back in love with all of them. I promised myself I would do some serious housecleaning and go for a very spacious, minimal aesthetic. But then the little ole bohemian in me snuck out and I find myself creating little vignettes in all the nooks and crannies of our new place.

All this decorating and nesting definitely has me thinking of spring! There's nothing like clearing out the clutter and making way for color!!

I'm definitely fancying the saturated pastels I've been seeing. They're making my heart go pitter-patter and have me dreaming of springy picnics:


speaking of vignettes, this is absolutely dreamy


I cannot get enough of books

these brighten even a snow day

love love love

seeing these two pastel minis together totally made me happy

 I've always wanted to do this

but I'm sort of chicken...

I can't wait to paint my nails some fun pastel shades


 and do this

planning to use bakerella's recipe and try my hand at making these this weekend

And on a completely unrelated note:
I blogged yesterday about being totally in love with Andrew Bannecker's work. I was all set to pop into his shop and purchase the Barney & Friend print I featured yesterday


but then I saw these sweeties
and now I can't decide! HELP PLEASE! 
Any thoughts/comments would be helpful. I love them all so much!

What are your plans for the weekend?




  1. Really can't lose! They all are great ... i guess it depends on the feel. I think the top one expresses love/union the most. Thanks for the link ... love his artwork :)

  2. Thanks Anna! That's sort of what I was thinking too - although I might wind up with more than 1 of his prints!!

  3. My apt is basically covered in tiny vignettes.. recently I just got a sweet beat up green vintage dresser and handmade wood wardrobe, with the manfriend suggesting we just get rid of my couch cuz then I can fit in like 3 more dressers, and maybe another side table! He like's to think he's funny. There's a fancy name for the fear of empty space, that my family like's to tease me about, but for the life of me I can't remember! I'll have to get back to you on that one ;)


I'm so happy you dropped by to check out my Vignettes. I love to read each of your comments and check out your blog too!! XO, Chelsea
