Also known as paper moons and star-flower pincushions! Move over yellow billy buttons (craspedias), scabiosa pods are in! I’m seeing these pop up in retail shops and weddings….and I like it. They’re whimsical, natural, rustic and look fantastic in just about any bunch of flowers. Include them in with your billy buttons and make them play nice ;)

I had the absolute pleasure of photographing the all-in-one space of Sitting in a Tree Events San Francisco’s half, Myka! Super sleek, white, light, airy with hints of feminine pretties! Be sure to get the full scoop at The Collection Event Studio’s blog, Part I (the space) here and Part II (the closet) here. Myka you’re the cutest! I’ve included some of my favorites…. (more…)

That’s right! Today is THE day. My little blog is celebrating her 4th year starting today! Well and she’s not that little anymore. The monthly visitors and pageview numbers have completely shocked me. Mama’s proud ;) It’s been a wonderful adventure in learning, exploring and trending. I’ve met so many people through her, people I call good friends. My gift to her is a refreshing new design, along with a new portfolio site…coming soon! Thank you for your loyalty. I appreciate it so much so that I will be partaking in a piece of cake because yesterday was the last day of my 14 day cleanse :) I take this opportunity now to ask you, what would you like to see or read more on her?

Bay Area Weddings! Vintage Decor Rentals from One True Love!

Yay!! I was ecstatic when Amanda emailed me announcing her new venture! We know how lovely vintage is, but we also know how painful it is for a pocketbooks, especially when planning a wedding. While services have been popping up all over the country, the Bay Area can finally say it has an official vintage rental place for weddings! (one would think we’d have this already huh?) Be sure to check out the site! Words from Amanda,

“As a bride planning her own vintage-inspired wedding, I was frustrated by the lack of resources available for me in the Bay Area. After collecting vintage furniture and decor for years, I knew where to go to find awesome vintage pieces, I just didn’t want to pay an arm and a leg for decor that I was only going to use for a few hours (turns out I have an obsession with antique farm tables, and those don’t come cheap!) One day I thought to myself: “why isn’t there someone who rents this stuff out?!” Realizing that other brides were probably feeling the same way, I decided to share my collection with other Bay Area brides…and thus One True Love Vintage Rentals was born!

As the first Bay Area company to specialize in vintage furniture and decor rentals for weddings, we’re incredibly excited to provide local brides with an easy and affordable way to add swoon-worthy vintage decor to their weddings, bridal showers, and engagement shoots. We offer everything from farm tables and steamer trunks to typewriters and skeleton keys…anything that is beautifully worn with a little rust or chipped paint! In addition to renting out fabulous furniture and accessories we also offer custom searches, styling, delivery, and set-up services – we’re looking to be a one-stop shop for Northern California vintage-loving brides!”
