Happy {Girl's} Weekend!!!

I hope everyone has a wonderful and relaxing weekend.  I am off to the pool today with my close old college girlfriends.  There will be plenty of bubbly to go around and lots of girl talk.  I hope your weekend is just as relaxing.

Unique {POST}

If you are looking to customize your emails with unique designs check out the new iPhone app called POST.  I love the name.  It was created by the young and fabulous designer Hanna Brooks Nation of Gababout stationary.  
The app allows you to design and send custom invitations and notes using 60 or more designs and it only cost .99 cents.

Gababout Stationary 
 Gababout Stationary comes in a 5 x7 note card, sold in a set of 25 and made with high quality materials and boxed with the company's signature orange color. These are a few of my favorites.

 She will customize each note card with your initials.  Stop by La Dolce Vita to check out her most recent interview.

Lovely Bedroom

Rich isn't it?  I am into navy walls right now and I love the rich contract of the white bedding and furniture against the dark navy walls.  This room feels very relaxing and romantic.

Colorful Designer Fabrics/Calico Corners

I never think to stop into Calico Corners, but after reading maison21's post I am going to make a trip this week.  They have designer fabric 30-60% showroom prices.  I can't wait to start shopping.

Designer Devon Baer

I fell in love with the Manhattan based Designer Devon Baer when I saw her jewelery featured on Plush Palette.  Her style is fresh and preppy.  She finds inspiration in antiques and all things beautiful in interiors.  These bold statement pieces are a great way to update your outfit. 
The tangerine and pink flowers in the necklace are perfect for spring/summer and the bigger the better.

Cute accent belt!  It reminds of a chinoiserie table lamp.  Shop her Etsy store.

Lovin' Silhouttes

Create your own silhoutte box like these from Ballard Designs.  Pick up your supplies from the Dollar Store or look around your house for empty shoe boxes or papier-mache boxes.  Cover them with scraps of wallpaper, scrapbook paper or even wrapping paper.
Check out Nikki's DIY tutorial on her blog Nikki's Nifty Knacks.  She did a great job!  

Here is another great way to display a silhoutte made by Krista at Cheapie Cheapie.  This would be a good gift for Mother's Day or a birthday. 
Purchase your supplies at the Dollar Store.  Click here for the project estimate.

Happy New Year to all.  I have been super busy during this holiday season with family and friends.  I want to apologize for my absence.  I am looking forward to 2010 and to get the year started off right lets talk about color.  Pantone just announced the color for 2010 is Turquoise 15-5519.  Pantone is the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industry.
