This weekend…

Today I’m also going to try switching up Friday Link Love a little bit, and instead of featuring a longer list of things to check out, I’m going to share my favorite blogger, blog post, article, whatever. Less to sift through, and you’ll know I mean business — each Friday’s link is definitely a fave!

This week, I was blown away by this DIY ‘melting heart’ tutorial from Erin. How pretty (and easy) is this? And can you believe it’s actually made out of crayons? So neat.

A little announcement that’s leading up to a big one: be sure to check back in here on Monday. I have some very exciting news to share with you! That’s right…the project I’ve been alluding to for months is about to be revealed! Get excited. I know I am.

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend, and enjoy the Super Bowl!!

  9. Recently discovered your blog and I love it. I love Downton Abbey. You should check out The House of Eliott. It’s about two sisters in the 1920’s who break into fashion design. It’s really great. It’s only on DVD unfortunately but it’s worth it. Have a wonderful weekend. Looking forward to the big announcement on Monday.

  10. I think you definitely need to add one of those little guys to your family! So precious!!

  16. Oh my gosh, I have to say it did freak me out a little when that bottom photo started moving. I thought I was still asleep a little bit. But it’s adorable, and (I’ll admit) I’m not a huge fan of french bulldogs, but that photo is adorableeee. It may have swayed me a little bit. Happy (almost) weekend!

  31. This sounds like such a lovely and productive week/end. Time spent watching Downton Abbey is never lost, especially for fashion and interior design inspiration!


  32. Hi Vmac+Cheese,
    I came across your posts through Clare Lancaster, of Women In Business, and absolutely adore the images you have. The Mini Alt series was definitely a highlight!
    I hope you don’t mind me asking but is there a particularly program you use to create the images – I love how they are on angles and have gorgeous snippets of text beside/around them.
    Thanks entirely for the inspiration!
