A Chalk Affair

Found via Twig & Thistle

How fabulous are these chalk illustrations done by Dana Tanamachi? I am still blown away by the fact that they were done completely by hand-- in other words, no stencils, no rulers! Incredible? I think yes.

Silent Sundays

As a huge fan of Rhiannon Leifheit of Liebemarlene Vintage, I was delighted to hear that she collaborated with a friend and opened their very own online shop, Silent Sundays. The store sells both new and vintage items, which include the clothing lines Family Affairs and Secret Squirrel. I have to say, though, I absolutely love their lookbook! The clothes look so dreamy, and the model has such a fresh face and is delightfully pretty. Not to mention, I would love to know where the shots were taken! Such a lovely place...

Paper Wheels

In September, I get to move into my very first apartment! It is very exciting, and I am already dreaming up decoration ideas. Luckily, the blog world is filled-to-the-brim with fantastic DIY projects, such as this paper wheel project I found on Ruffled. The idea actually came from a handmade wedding in Texas, which you can check out here. Isn't it just the prettiest thing? This paper art adds so much dimension and interest to plain walls... and it's completely doable! You can view the complete how-to here. I'm thinking this project is an absolute must for my new bedroom in the fall... Tell me, do you have any good ideas for easy bedroom decor?
