I am in no way knowledgeable about wine. I have, however, grown fond of the occasional glass or two! If I were to get a wine rack I may get one something like this. It is nicely tucked away but kind of a focal point at the same time. Very nice. Find it here.

I have fallen for these chic, witty journals by Archie Grand. They come in an array of gorgeous colors and are an organizational dream! I have an "Inspiration Notebook" where I write down ideas, sketch, paste pics etc. But it is a jumbled mess of ideas which makes it hard to find an old entry. These journals are categorized ex- "Poets I met and Liked". How fun- and at about $12 this would make a great birthday, Christmas, or just because present! Find them at archiegrand.com. Featured on Daily Candy.

I know, it's Monday. As a personal challenge I am re-thinking Mondays. Music has always been a source of comfort and inspiration for me and some good old tunes do the trick when I'm feeling a little sluggish. Instead of dread, I am beginning my week with a smile, a positive disposition and some awesome oldies. Have any tricks to a happy Monday? Please share them! :) Image found at http://www.lite1068.com/images/jukebox.jpg via google.

I saw this idea a while ago in one of the many, many wedding blogs I read. I fell in love with the idea and wanted to try it for my wedding, but it became too costly. I am on a serious budget folks! But if you can take the time to scout for beautiful pieces and find someone to screen print or embroider them for a reasonable amount I would go for it! It adds a personal touch- just think this would be an invitation that would act as a keepsake for all your guests. Maybe it could pull double duty as your favors! Find it here.

So, after my last post about life I thought to myself "what would be a great design choice to come home to that would immediately brighten my day if I needed a little pick-me-up?"- I have it! A bright pink room like this would absolutely do the trick. Find here it on Apartment Therapy.

I don't usually post about how I am feeling, but it occurred to me that many people may be feeling the same way in these times. As a woman in my mid-twenties, planning my wedding and preparing to start my life with my man, I find myself in difficult times. Our current economic situation in the U.S. is less than ideal, but I wanted to encourage anyone out there feeling the pinch as I am, to hang in there. In these times I am reminded that all I really need in my life, I already have. Love, family, friendship and a dream I am passionate about...American Tart. :)
