hello monday + inspiration from toast

Happy new week to you friends. Today Im feeling inspired by these images from Toast’s winter/holiday catalog.

How fun {and easy} is this ornament garland? I am so going to DIY a couple of these.

And the bell garlands around the fireplace are so cute. Would love to make these too. Wonder where I can find loose bells. Anyone know?

Storm lanterns add a lovely “old-world” touch dont they?

How are your holiday preps going?

inspired by; summer in a garden

I’ve been spending pretty much every dry day in my garden. Soaking in sunshine, dinners, gardening some supervising projects. The contractors are working on the lower level deck as we speak. Once they are done, which I hope is in a day or so, we have to stain and finish it along with our existing upper level deck. I also scored a set of green round wrought iron table and two chairs from one of our neighbors and it fits perfectly into my {in progress} potting shed/ tea area. my vision for this indoor-outdoor space is something like this.

Which brings me to this post. Toast UK’s summer catalog is filled with great art direction, gorgeous locations and, of course, cute outfits. Now, Im getting even more ideas for my garden.

This red polka dot bikini has my name written all over it.

How charming is this stone patio? I want!!

I might just have to give these casual and super comfy pants a try.
