I love finding awesome blogs online. And when you think of the absolutely amazing number of websites and blogs that are out there, it is pretty astonishing that you can find anything decent at all. So my friends, I want to share with you my little loved jewels of places I visit (nearly) every day. Instead of going on and on about why I love each place, I'll just let you visit and make up your own mind. Just know they are all awesome, and not just because I say so. Ok maybe a little because I say so. (Please Please forgive the quality of some of these pictures! I fully admit to yanking them from their websites, but only out of love and promotion!)






This last one is not a blog. It is just an extra of extreme awesomeness. Thanks to paper n stitch for this great find. Coulson Macleod creates these wonderful text prints. I would fully love to have some of these prints in my house. I could see the movie love quotes being a threesome over our bed, or maybe one each of the zodiac sign ones. If only I had the money to ship them from the UK to Jacksonville, FL. And yes, if you were wondering, I am a proud Aquarius!

I would not change a single thing about my wedding. If I had it to do over again, Vegas would probably happen all over again. That being said every now and then I come across such lovely little wedding touches that I have a little day dream of putting together a big wedding party. Today I found Timeless Paper on Etsy and had one of those moments. Just look at these beautiful and whimsical table and seat cards!

:P, originally uploaded by San Smith.
Love. It all started this morning with my search for beautifully funky highlighted hair. That is why I came across this picture. Hello?! How lovely is she and her hair??! I don't know what my deal is, but I am currently very close to awesomely highlight hair soon. I can just feel it. And this coming from the girl who never colors her hair!

Anyway I digress about the love part. So I find this picture, notice she has a blog and scoot my butt on over if she couldn't be cooler - she. gets. cooler! I love her blog! I love her illustrations! I love her attitude! I'm having a little blog crush at the moment and I just thought I'd share with you... you know just in case you needed something new to crush on too!

Yes, yes I do! I also love this decal for a mac! Lildecalshoppe has lots more clever decals that integrate our favorite logo!

It is cold here in Florida. Really cold. Here let me show you how cold. This was taken this morning in my front yard. Ice but no snow, unfortunately.

Cold weather = cozy warm drinks. This brings me to that seaming cup of loveliness up there. That, my friends, is a warm delicious cup of dulche de leche coffee. I'm already drooling. Am I the only one? Well just wait till you see the rest of the pictures that go along with this wonderful recipe by The Pioneer Woman.


Let me share with you her little tip regarding this Microplane zester. You run the zester - upside down! It is BRILLIANT! I have their grater but... that tip makes me ache for a zester. Yes I am that type of person.

Merry Christmas my dear readers, whomever you may be. I will be spending Christmas in Clearwater with my family, my extended family and on and on. My gift to you is Michelle White. She is a beautiful illustrator that I've loved for quite some time. I toy with the idea of getting a piece of her's tattooed. Have a wonderful holiday and I'll see you on the other side!

I LOVE this little short. It is completely creepy, but so beautifully animated.

No I am not pregnant. Honestly, this is the first year of my life that I am unsure if I want to be. Luckily both Mike and I are in the same place of not knowing where we are on the baby issue. That doesn't stop me from just adoring babies and pregnant women. Both are radiant and beautiful and so full of LIFE (both figuratively and literally!) The above photo is by Ryan Marshall of his wife Cole (she is fierce!) He has shot a whole series of photos of Cole leading up to the birth of their baby girl Tessa. They are stunningly amazing. That statement can be used for his photography work in general. I love finding wonderful photography like this. Always so very inspiring.


I recently made a post with a great item from Since then I've come to just love that site! What a great find!! I wanted to share some of my other favorites design elements from the site. Like these excellent bookshelves. Books don't need to be contained in wood! Let them be their own bold decorative piece!

The death of the Polaroid is quite honestly devastating.  I love that these little frames help keep the tradition alive in a little way.

Speaking of Polaroids (and off subject from Delight - I know), you simply must check out Kerry Ball's photography! She is a wonderful photographer in both digital and Polaroid mediums. Her collages are stunning!! (as you can see!)


It is almost Christmas dear readers!! How positively perfect is this scene from DC?! Doesn't it look just like a movie set?? I want to be one of those people bundled up, happily shopping, Starbucks in hand. Of course that all sounds far better to me because I'm a non-snowed in Floridian. Confession - I've never seen snow. Ever. It is, in fact, an experience I long for with every fiber of my being. Seeing snow is on my bucket list. Every year I think, this will be the year we take the drive just to SEE the snow and come back. I was teased with the possibility this year again. Now I'll probably just wait till next year and hope for the best! Till then, I'll keep looking at lovely pictures like this and day dream about snow, snow, snow, snow - SNOW!
