Loving it! (a.k.a. this week’s obsessions)

My parents are flying in from Italy on Tuesday, and I’m thinking of a special treat to bake for them; my dad loves freshly baked goods! Taking inspiration from someone baking for their own dad, I’m thinking of making him this Salted Millionaires Shortbread.

Tired of fairy lights? Revive that old string for your next party with this cute DIY Dixiecup Garland.

Seriously thinking of organizing a belated and way over the top 15th wedding anniversary celebration… if only to have an an excuse to buy this brooch bouquet.

Vanilla cupcakes

I simply love these bracelets from Son of a Sailor. Like friendship bracelets, only better.

Next time I spot symptoms of travel fever, I will bake myself some London-themed cupcakes. (Or maybe Paris-themed. Or NYC.)

I don’t know where I’d put it in our tiny apartment, but I would love to get this paisley settee that I spotted on the latest issue of Rue.
