Aimee from the Song of Style blog posted this (what appears to be) easy enough framed chalkboard diy project. When I make an attempt at it I'll post pictures. Until then why don't you give it go. Let me know how it works out ;)
I'm in the process of creating an @home bar and currently on the hunt for an official looking bar cart (ya know, glass table top with brass accents, thats how I roll). So when I came across the Mr. and Mrs. cocktail glass set they immediately jumped to the top of my wish list.
You have to admit these are pretty stellar. I need to leave my lipstick stain on the Mrs. soon.

Back in 2009 I was lucky enough to have been gifted the first and second clothbound series of the Penguin Classics as illustrated by the talented Coralie Bickford-Smith. These books seriously dress up anything. See...
But now I'm hungry for more! I've been eyeing the F. Scott Fitzgeral series since they came out a while back.
I love books. I love to read books. I love to collect books. I love the smell of new books. I love old books. I love new books. I love studying book covers. I use my books as artwork. I love books.So I was particularly excited when I came across this short profile piece that DUTCHDFA network did a while back on graphic designer, Irma Boom. Have a peak!

The colors, the style, the lines...the very talented fashion illustrator Inslee Haynes has stolen my corazon. In the words of Rachel Zoe, " I die" for these illustrations!! If you can't find some inspiration by looking at these (and plenty more on her site) then you should go check your pulse. Just saying...
|My personal favorite...J'adore|

Today is what would have been the lovely Lucille Ball's 100th birthday. And to celebrate the uber creative team at Google came up with a homepage doodle featuring footage from the iconic I Love Lucy show. With each turn of the dial you get to watch a famous scene from the show. I almost didn't make it through my breakfast watching the clips laughing so hard! I forgot how funny the show actually was. Make sure you check it out!
Happy Birthday Lucy!
