A Baby on the Way

Despite being a total wedding fanatic...I have recently switched gears only slightly as I focus my efforts on something else...that being my growing bump! Yes that's right I'm 21 weeks pregnant and expecting a baby boy in April. So, I decided it was time to start another blog, this one devoted solely to baby. I'm talking about the best nursery decor, maternity clothing, awesome baby gear...I'll be talking about it all.

Check out my newest endeavor here...Graceful Belly. Of course, this doesn't mean I will stop hand feed eye candy here (not to worry there)! Graceful Whimsy is still alive and well. Oh and if you must know where this gorgeous baby in this too cute for words hat came from, check out Citefuzz.

Trench Coats are all the Rage...for Dogs

This amazing doggie trench coat just showed up on my Etsy homepage and I figured everyone just needs to see this. I mean, even my husband just said "aaaawww" when he saw this photo. So cute I just might need one (I mean Ollie needs one).

The artist is RoverDog and there are so many cute things in her shop. In a world full of puppies in tutus with pink studded colors, her shop is a breath of fresh air. Every item in her shop is tailored and classic - kind of like J. Crew for dogs. Love it love it.

Amy and Jon's Wedding

I've been looking forward to Amy's wedding for a while. I mean...how often do you get to attend a graphic designer's wedding...guaranteed to be swoon worthy right? Amy chose purple, green and dove gray as her wedding colors and she married these three shades together just beautifully. Often dove gray and purple can be very traditional...but adding a fresh pop of green does something really magical.

Amy's centerpieces were a work of art. She literally dreamed up the creation of these sculpturally beautiful pieces of art! Simply amazing. She included bleached branches, rocks, peas, and dahlias in a glass hurricane for a really unique and unexpected look. Mason jars hung from branches adding a warm touch of light throughout the night. Just lovely.

Holiday Style with a Coastal Twist

Those of you who know me well...know I appreciate fall - but it's really not my thing. Dark colors, cold weather, and mums are just not my favorite. So, when I opened a Wisteria catalog today when I got home...I was giddy over their Coastal Christmas collection. Yes, yes yes! Just what I needed to spark my enthusiasm for the holidays. Sand dollar ornaments, coral tree skirt, star fish stockings!! Sorry I just can't contain my excitement and hopefully you appreciate this new development as much as I do. How refreshing.
