Something Pretty The March Edit

Over six months into curating them, I now always look forward to working on these monthly Edit posts! It’s the perfect excuse to peruse my favorite online stores and to search for common themes or color palettes in the pieces catching my eye.

I am happy to report that the cherry blossom photo below is not an old one…it’s from last week! I caught the trees blooming out of the corner of my eye while I was driving the other day. When I went back to take some photos by them for an upcoming post, I didn’t find […]

For This Feast Our Lady of Lourdes

Full disclosure, I pulled this tablescape together at the very last minute. For days, I have been refreshing the tracking information on the perfect Marian-inspired tablecloth that I was dreaming of using for an Our Lady of Lourdes shoot.
