what I love: spring inspiration!

I have a special treat for everyone this week. I don't know about the rest of the US but here on the East Coast we had a lucky break from the cold winter, and spring arrived!!! Because of this lucky break and fortunate warm weather, I have decided that what I love this week is SPRING!!

So on to your treat: I've selected a couple of my favorite spring inspirations from all over the wedding blogosphere, and here they are!

Flower and Mint Ice Cubes!
  Thanks to Dog N'Bird. What a tasty idea for an outdoor garden wedding. Cocktail hour, anyone?

Adorable lil' birdie DIY nests - like these!
 Thanks to PolkaDotBride! How cute would these look nesting as the cake topper on your wedding day?

And finally... how gorgeous is this brooch bouquet??
 I can only dream of carrying such a beautiful bouquet down the aisle to my one and only. You can get one of your own as well - if you check out Fantasy Floral Designs! Thank you Ruffled for such a great tip at such an apropos time!

Hope you enjoy what I'm in love with this week - spring!

what I love: happy tape!

I know how many DIY brides there are out there - especially now in these economic times! Who wouldn't like to save a buck or two by taking some projects on? For those of you who may be a tad less adept in the crafting world and may prefer tape over Elmer's glue (or God-forbid super glue), I have a special treat - Happy Tape! Happy Tape is a genius creation that just came over to us in the USA from Japan. It is a great paper tape in all sorts of colors and designs.

For all those brides who are looking to add a touch of personality to generic items, enter Happy Tape!

There's no doubt in my mind, that what I love this week is Happy Tape!
