It's been raining non-stop for the past few days but I love falling asleep to the sound of rain. Everything looks lush, green, and alive and the air smells so fresh. Luke and I went to a friends wedding at a gorgeous winery this Saturday and I discovered my new favorite sweet wine, Elderberry! I'm working on perfecting my quiche and for brunch today I created a tasty "caprese" version with fresh basil,tomatoes,mozzarella, and shallots..yum! As we were leaving for dinner at my Mom's I realized we were wearing semi-matching oxfords, his are a vintage find and mine just came in from them. Being stuck inside gave us a chance to work on the house a bit, I've been working on the dining room and trying to decide on the wall/accent colors. We recently scored some amazing white glass/antique gold vintage lights from an old church that we are rehabbing to use in our main hallway..they are so unique,and HEAVY! 


             zizi and copper had a lazy weekend

Our friend's wedding was so much fun!
I wore my favorite navy blazer from h&m,a pleated black crepe dress, and the most comfortable black suede wedges from urban outfitters..perfect for dancing.  It started to rain during the ceremony(eek!) and my naturally curly hair turned into a slight frizz monster..the birdcage veil and feather headpiece I created for the bride looked amazing though!

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend!

The Peeps pictures make me oh so happy :) Not going to lie, I love Peeps. But only after I've let them get a little hard. And that heart cut out dress is so amazing. You've renewed my want for one. And your pets make me happy too :)
