10 Things I Love

Has it really been over 3 weeks since I posted the last 10 Things I Love? I can't believe I've been slacking in the "love" department! These things are extra lovely just since I have obviously been stock piling things to adore over the past few weeks...

1.) This print by Lauren Carney reminds me of Sandi & I. She's my furry little best friend that goes everywhere with me, shares my snacks, and keeps me company. She really loves to lick out my bowls when I'm finished eating ice cream, too. (& I really can relate to that silly girl with red hair, glasses, and a pink bow.)
2.) The Olsen twins. Yes, I looked up to them when I was little. Yes, I still look up to them now. They're fashion icons. Such fashionistas. & They're the same age as me! It's like I've grown up watching their styles change as my own style has evolved. Does anyone else look to these girls for fashion inspiration?
3.) Little Miss Lovely Vintage now has business cards! I'm stoked about them... a new way to network!
4.) I really like this stacked teacup jewelry stand from Urban Outfitters. I'd hate to have something ceramic shipped to me so I'm going to look for it the next time I head to the Baltimore store. Hopefully, it will be on sale by the time I get there.
5.) This hand-made ceramic tentacle mug is so rad! Great product found on Etsy.
6.) No, these are not photographs, they're oil paintings. Realism at its finest! Christopher Scott paints these 36" x 36" creations on canvas. I love his retro-inspired subjects. 
7.) "Take a picture of a picture from the past in the present" by Dear Photograph. These pictures are pretty awesome. Jillian McGrath Photography shared this site on Facebook and I've been checking back often to see if there are any new pictures on their blog. If you were going to make one of these before/afters, where would it be?  
8.) These Vivienne Westwood cherry shoes make my heart skip a beat. They're so fun. Unfortuntely they're not being produced anymore. If you see them anywhere in a size 8, buy them all and I'll gladly take them off your hands!
9.) These funky, fun, feather hairclips I've been making. I spent a few hours the other night putting together several of these little hair fascinators. I love wearing silk flowers in my hair but wanted something a little more bold... so I started creating these. They're combinations of some of my favorite things all put into one hair accessory!
10.) My friend, Natalie, of Birdhouse Productions has been cranking out one amazing video after another lately. I swear that I can't watch any of these wedding scenes without getting a little teary-eyed. This production is fun and light-hearted. Check out the Birdhouse Production website for more of these splendid pieces.
Hope you liked these lovelies!
