Thursday's Randoms

I've been rather obsessed with Tory Burch lately, evidenced by my recent splurge (hey, I had a gift card and my cheapo sunnies broke after a year!) at Sunglass Hut.  So when I saw these riding boots this morning, I fell in love.  


I saw this image on my Pinterest this morning and immediately thought it would be terrific in that dream store of mine, as a display for stationary or something similar.  Yesterday we stopped at a flea market in the middle of nowhere (thanks I-65 emergency closing) and saw tons of things like this that I wanted to snatch up, but unfortunately they were closing and we couldn't make a decision!

Speaking of awesome things for my dream store, aren't these wall decals used fabulously?!  What a creative way to take an ordinary kitchen and spice it up a notch!  

This image by Tina Crespo reminds me of our neighborhood.  It makes me feel happy, as I love the forest and I love the overall tone of the photograph.  I'm on the lookout for a giant picture of the forest to hang above our mantle, so keep your eyes peeled (he he).

Will someone please buy me this black and white leather triangle tote from the ever awesome renneslechateau?  Oh wait, it's sold :(

Since recreating our wedding cake, I've had an itch to bake more and more.  It was difficult to make the cake, but challenging in all the right ways (the edible reward was pretty top notch, I must say).  I want to get in there and challenge myself some more - and this time use food coloring to get an ombre look like this adorable cake.

Hope your weeks are fantastic so far!
