We love Easter! We love bunnies! So what better way to add a touch or two of cuteness to your spring home decor than by decorating with Easter bunnies. We fell in love with Pier 1 Imports Hop Town Bunnies (which are now on sale for 20% OFF) but you can just as easily use any plush bunny. And much like people, bunnies are just as lovable in any size, color, shape, and age (vintage & homemade bunnies are the BEST!).
Once you fully invest in decorating with Easter bunnies, you will quickly see that part of the fun for your family and guests is discovering delightful bunnies in the most unusual places. Place them in your garden, walking up your stairway, hidden in your bookshelves, and obviously, gracing your Easter table. We are particularly enamored with the little bunny peaking out of the mud boot in this front hallway vignette. Continue Reading →
Both girls and their moms love the Lotus Flower Woven Dress and the Dusty Blue Asymmetrical Skirted Dress. These dresses are perfect for Passover and Easter celebrations, special occasions or even a picnic in the park.
Shopping for special occasion outfits for boys? Twin your little boy with your daughter. This dusty blue woven popover is so perfect for spring holidays. Alternatively, layer a classic polo with a darling v-neck cardigan.
And don't forget to see what new on sale! Since all of Tea's clothes are cute, why not save a few pennies!
Happy Springtime! Party Hearty!
From Coachella to Stagecoach to FYF and Gov Ball, music and art festivals are more popular than ever. While music may be the main focus of thesae festivals, one could argue that the festival fashion, and especially Coachella fashion, is the true showstopper! Here is our issue with so many of the Coachella outfits >> they are what we have begun to call wanna-be's. Rather than being authentic 70's and bohemian style outfits, they are fakes. It is a little like home decorating. All those tiles that are trying to look like wood or stone and simply are not, drive us completely crazy. We always say don't choose a fake version of something if you can readily get the real thing. Same with clothes. Why buy fake 70's clothes when you can buy real vintage one of a kind outfits. This is why we turned to Daryn Belinsky, of Little Light Vintage, for her take on this year's festival wear. Continue Reading →
(words of advice for college graduates … + the starfish poem)
Update >> Since graduation season is once again upon us, we have decided to republish this post since it seems as relevant seven years later as the day we wrote it. In those seven years, Daniel has gone on to forge a distinguished career in education. And, in my ever so humble opinion, he truly is heeding his commencement speaker's advice and both doing something that matters & helping to save the world. And while I am at it, I want to congratulate two of my nieces who are graduating this spring, Katie and Sami. Two more graduates who I am certain will make their mark in the world!
My son, along with his peers from across the country, graduated from college this year. Our family had the honor of listening to Steven Chu, Secretary of Energy in the Obama administration, deliver the Washington University of St Louis commencement address. Chu, in his own uniquely charming and witty way, told the graduates his “take home message to you will be just one sentence. Actually, it will be just four words.”
“Do something that matters.”
and then Chu added
“Help save the world.“
Almost 2 years later, we still love Minted's Minibook Graduation Announcements!
Wow! We are always impressed by our visitors creativity but you have to check out the Graduation Announcement Reflections MiniBook Vicki assembled in honor of her daughter's graduation from University of Southern California (USC). As one of our early winners of a $50.00 Minted gift certificate, she used this most generous gift to its full advantage. We absolutely love this elegant way to handle graduation announcements. Rather than send a cheap, flimsy typical graduation announcement that truthfully, we often view as a solicitation for a gift, this graduation minibook is truly a celebration of her daughter's four years of college. It is informative, is is gorgeous, and reflects school spirit and the warmth and pride of the family. Thank you Vicki for sharing and introducing us to these unique graduation announcements!!!
