Falling Water

Being a design lover and a kid at heart, I was so excited the other day to come across a whole new architecture line of Lego's.  I couldn't believe my eyes...Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater House!  That's exciting stuff!  Don't think I wouldn't put this together and have it out on display in my house.  I told my husband about it and he said, "falling what?  Who's Frank Lloyd Wright?"  I'm like, REALLY?  I thought everyone knew that.  Perhaps just the people who've taken any sort of art appreciation class in college.  Go figure...

You can buy it online from Lego for $99.00.  They have some other great models in the architecture line.

There are a ton more.  If you love design, I highly recommend checking it out.

Be still my heart

While browsing blogs yesterday I came across a beautiful black and white horizontal stripe dress.  I immediately thought I had found a dress to wear to the formal Christmas party we're going to in a few weeks until I saw the price tag.  I clicked on the link and it took me to Kate Spade's website and a $478.00 price tag.  I think I need to keep looking.  But I love the dress so much that I just had to share.  It also comes in one of my favorite color combinations, pink and orange.

I love it.  Classic lines yet fun.

I also wanted to share another black and white beauty that stole my heart a few months ago. 

This stunning gown by Oscar de la Renta.  It's perfection if you ask me. 

Have you seen any amazing dresses lately?

Lovely organizer

I recently found (and purchased) this organizer at Target. I absolutely love the pattern and what's not to like about orange and gold???

They had other lovely designs and it was so hard to choose, but I did finally chose this one. And, with a price under $8.00 how could I refuse.

Baby shower with candy bar

This weekend I hosted a baby shower for a dear friend. She's having a girl and it was so fun to decorate with pink for a change. I've got 2 boys and they didn't know what to think with so much pink in the house.

Everything turned out great and the candy bar was a hit! Pink, yellow and orange. Such a pretty combination.

Setting up the candy bar the night before

What a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
