Oops! And my bedroom wall.

I just realized, I didn't blog yesterday? Well, no sense beating myself up over it, right?

I meant to play with some picture frames over the bed today but I spent too much time laying in bed (not feeling well) to think about what do over it.

For a while now I've been trying to figure out how to decorate the space up there and I'm still undecided.
This is the best picture I have of the wall space but not how it looks now

This is what it looks like (except the bed skirt and duvet are not wrinkled anymore) now, plus I had pushed the Armoire flat against the wall. I'd love a new headboard but its not in the budget now.

I'm leaning towards a photo collage like this (I don't know where I got this one..oops)

I was originally going to do something like this. (via Emily A. Clark)

Or just 2 frames? (via Emily A. Clark)
I like frames above the nightstands

This could be cute. (Via Emily A. Clark)

And another from Emily

Ideally, I'd love something like that but we haven't been blessed with gorgeous city windows. (Via designsponge )So, what do you like best?

I had something picked out for today but then I got busy and started playing with the new layout editor Blogger came out with (expect this page to look vastly different soon!).
So, you will have to wait until next Thursday for this post because I decided to have a Thursday theme. Keep an eye out for it....
I'll be back tomorrow with something. Until then, an adorable picture via desiretoinspire:

Le Fabuleux Destin D'Amélie Poulain

On September 3rd 1973, at 6:28pm and 32 seconds, a bluebottle fly capable of 14,670 wing beats a minute landed on Rue St Vincent, Montmartre. At the same moment, on a restaurant terrace nearby, the wind magically made two glasses dance unseen on a tablecloth. Meanwhile, in a 5th-floor flat, 28 Avenue Trudaine, Paris 9, returning from his best friend's funeral, Eugène Colère erased his name from his address book. At the same moment, a sperm with one X chromosome, belonging to Raphaël Poulain, made a dash for an egg in his wife Amandine. Nine months later, Amélie Poulain was born...

Whilst looking up some music for a friend I remembered how fabulous the soundtrack from Amelia is (listen)which of course reminded me of just how much I love Amelie.
If you've not seen this movie, you should. It always makes me so happy.

Bonne Nuit Lovelies!
Remember, even artichokes have hearts.

Macaron Love

These bright colored little babies keep popping up on all my favorite blogs. I'm determined to make some but I want to wait and make them for a special occasion. Feast your eyes on these pretties-






Now tell me you don't want one of those.
How I did not know about Macarons until a month ago is beyond me.

Lovely little links

I hope your monday was bearable. If not (or even if so) here's some sweet links to brighten your evening.

The inspiration for my own 365.

Can I live in this site ? I want it all.

Awesome!  Now, I just need to write a letter to go in it.

The most amazing maternity shoot. (scroll down, then scroll through).

These photos make me want to chop my hair off. Don't worry, I won't

This dress would be perfect for my friends wedding next month. While I'm at it I think I need this one too. Oh! and this one!

These clutches would make the perfect gift.

Desperately craving, I love cherries so.

Lazy pool days

I spent today reading by the pool. If only everyday could be spent like that.
Afterwards I came back in with an awful craving for hot dogs, baked beans and potato salad. How amazing does that sound?

P.s. My mom makes the best potato salad ever. Mom, make some and overnight it to me? Please and thank you!

Goodnight darlings!
