5 Things…

I’m loving right now.

my favorite!

J Crew Matchstick jeans, especially in the “Classic Rinse” wash

Sharon Segal tees – My favorite t-shirt brand. Quite possibly the perfect v-neck. Everything about this shirt is perfect: Fit, length, fabric, the shape of the V. I like the crew neck, too, but the v-neck is perfection.

Tegan & Sara’s new album (“Closer” is a great spin song)

Buffalo Gal Organics lip balm

Flywheel  – More like a year-long addiction. Review coming soon!


Wedding DIY: Paperback book-covered flower jars – Vintage-styled centerpieces

My friend Zee came over after a morning hike yesterday to help me craft for my upcoming wedding. More accurately, I shared my vision with her, borrowing from this idea, and she executed all of them with laser-focused efficiency (thanks, Zee!). While she was doing that, I was busy cutting tiny fabric circles to make these (to be blogged in a separate post soon).

How it’s done 

We tore the pages out of a paperback book, halved them, and Mod Podged the edges onto 32-oz Mason jars. Let them dry. Then I hot-glued the ribbon to one side of the paper doily heart and glued it to the jar. Once that was affixed, I glued the other side (ribbon, then heart) into place.
