Brightly Colored Rainy Day

I can't wait for Spring. I am so tired of this dull, grey, wintery, rainy weather. Can you believe it is supposed to SNOW again this week in Texas?? Yuck.

So I'm turning my sights to something brighter. How great are these table accessories?? They just scream fun and festive!! I would love to get these for my first Spring BBQ!!

All from Cambria Cove online. Each picture linked to the site. Sweet!

Don't Just Like It

I used to be a loyal Miller Lite supporter. These days, I mix it up. However, I will always ALWAYS support their advertising. It's always a close race between Miller and Bud for the most creative ads, but right now, Miller is pulling ahead with their new "Love" campaign.

Perfect for Valentine's day? Perfect for any day.

There are several on TV, but my favorite are the radio ads (and of course I can't find any linkable audio clips to share online). The radio ad is a Love vs. Like campaign (Why just like your beer when you can love it?) and I'll leave you with this one liner:

"Anyone wanna set sail on the like boat? No thanks, Captain Boring."

Here are a couple of examples of their TV ads:

Forever Flowers

I love bouquets of fresh flowers, but nothing is worse than seeing your beautiful arrangement die off in only a few days.

Here are some great alternatives that have taken root in the wedding world that I think would be great as home decor too... Brooch & Door Knob Bouquets!!

Amy Atlas of Sweet Designs Blog just did a feature on Brooch Bouquets that she gathered from various other blogs... The images are below, but see her original post here for explanation and photo credits. Gorgeous!!!

Another favorite wedding/inspiration blog is 100 Layer cake, and they just recently featured a "Real Wedding" that was vintage in design, and the bride carried a bouquet made of door knobs and drawer pulls from Anthropologie! Love that idea!!
While these bouquets may be initially more expensive than a typical grocery store bundle of blooms, I think the impression that they give will last forever. Definitely worth the investment!
