Friday Favorites



one: Lemon mini pitchers from PigeonToeCeramics
two: Shabby tea party by syko
three: Narwhal shadowbox by papersparrow
four: Sprout Earrings from stellaandlux

It's been an intense week over here. One that had me begging for the weekend on Monday. I have two weeks left at my present employment and I have a funny feeling that it's going to be a very long two weeks. But, on a happier note, Andrew and I celebrated my birthday a day early last night--complete with David Bacco chocolates and special little gifts! *does a little happy dance*

I'm off to Minnesota for the weekend! A baby shower for my niece and some long walks with my mom and dad. Spring in Northfield is divine--all lush and green with blankets of Triliums and Silia.

Sending you all heaps of love!

XOXO
Jewels
