Happy Friday everyone! With the exception of a bit of sewing work I need to get done, I'll be spending my day in my kitchen baking up a storm for tomorrow big party! There's going to be about 40 people joining us in our backyard for Brewfest so I've been staying pretty organized by typing out a detailed menu including timing the, er, "courses" and by writing up a food preparations schedule. I've planned a plethora of food that can be prepared in advance for the most part so I can enjoy the party with my guests. Martha Stewart would be so proud of me! Last night I baked these cookies! They are so cake-y and yummy, like the top of a muffin. And super easy too! Click the link below for the recipe!

I must share this Marchesa Spring 2012 ready-to-wear collection! It's a totally give me a designer crush. Also, I can't believe this is "ready to wear". You'd really think these are made to order pieces. Regardless, they are absolutely lovely confections and I'm loving the smoky colors & wispy fabrics!

It was 45 degrees when I got up this morning, so you can no longer ignore that it's getting chilly outside. This gives me a mixture of emotions because our big backyard party is this weekend and when I planned everything I have a sunny 75 degree day in mind. Now I'm questioning my menu (are cold sandwiches still good?) and trying to re-plan for a chilly day. We are going to have a fire pit going in the evening which helps but now I'm trying to round up a bunch of cozy wool blankets for people to keep toasty under! I have some beautiful wool in my fabric drawers that I never used so I think I'm going to whip up some blankets from that and bring them out in a big basket, something like this:

Today's Tuesday Shoesday is a round up of 1920's style shoes from Anthropology. Wear any one of these pretty pairs and you're be doing the Charleston like a real Jazz Baby!

Today on 100 Layer Cake, their featured bride has the most gorgeous vintage wedding dress and she paid, get this, $12 for it at a vintage warehouse! Unbelievable! I just had to post some picture because she is so cute (& so are her bridesmaids!). The fabric of her dress is an embroidered cotton voile, which for whatever reason they hardly make anymore. If I could get my hands on some I would for sure design it into the vintage warehouse! Unbelievable! I just had to post some picture because she is so cute (& so are her bridesmaids!).

If I could get my hands on some I would for sure design it into the Laura Whitney Couture collection!
