Oh how I do love weddings, though I’ve only been to a handful of them in my life. So perhaps I should revise that to I like to look at pictures of weddings. And how pretty pretty is this wedding photographed by Paco and Betty? So much happiness. I’m in love with that little cottage house (and that pink striped room!). The location is Nestldown in Los Gatos, which isn’t actually toooooo far away from me. Perhaps I shall check it out sometime for a little day trip. Too many precious gems of places to explore, wouldn’t you agree?

This or That: Coffee or Tea?

I love coffee, perhaps a little too much. I wasn’t sleeping very well, so I stopped drinking coffee a week ago and replaced it with tea. Even though tea still has caffeine, it seems to have less of a jittery affect on me. I’m happy to say I’ve been sleeping much better so far!

What about you? Do you need to have that cup of joe first thing in the morning, or is tea more your thing? – Emily

Teacups of Autumn

I love the idea of putting bits of nature into teacups for display. I’ve always used jars to store things in the past (my jar collection is getting a little overwhelming now!), but now I’ve got to get my hands on some teacups!

Patterned sweaters

Have I said how much I like patterned sweaters? I think it all started with my mom, who has quuuite the collection. I’d borrow her sweaters every once and a while until I started building up a collection of my own and now we’ve kind of combined our resources to make one giant patterned sweater collection that we both share. This sweater is one of my favorites and it’s been a staple in both my mom’s and my wardrobe for years.

Suburban Lawns

I’ve always lived in the suburbs, but found the city so much more alluring. The lights! The crowds! The restaurants! The action! Now as I get older, I’m starting to find value in the sleepy mundane that suburbia has to offer. I love this Suburban Lawns photo series so much. It captures everything I’ve come to appreciate about non-city life. How about you? Are you a city rat or country mouse? …or somewhere in between?

This or That: Vintage or New?

this or that: vintage or new? - drifter and the gypsy blog

When I was in high school, I wore wacky clothes that I found at thrift stores. It was all about the story and about standing out and being an individual. Then college I had my first office job, along with a little extra money to spend, so I had fun buying boots and handbags and other investment pieces that I would wear forever. I would have to say that more recently, I’ve preferred browsing the thrift store racks for that perfect something, because it feels unique and personal and not to mention better for the earth.

What about you? Do you wear vintage clothes or new ones? – Emily
