This morning I attempted to break my evening fast with a delicious bounty of vegan waffles, fully garnished with maple syrup & strawberries. Unfortunately, my attempt failed...

some waffles stuck to my waffle iron while others were crisp on the outside, but still gooey on the sad.

I didn't want to horrify you with photos of my frightening breakfast disaster, so instead I thought I would share with you some pretty waffle successes...enjoy!

A Tiny Cottage

Over the past couple of days, I haven't been feeling well. My days & nights have been spent snuggling with my Gidget, reading this book, & drinking my favorite health tonic, organic chamomile & raw honey tea.

Last night, I thought it would be fun to delve into my world of Pinterest. To my surprise, I found this pretty little cottage.


Isn't it the perfect spot for rest & relaxation?? It's perfectly quaint & tranquil. I'd adore spending the rest of my life here.
{P.S. Isn't the library in the 2nd photo genius??}

DIY Doily Lanterns

I'm absolutely in love with doilies, right now. They are the perfect feminine craft.

{Romantic. Delicate. Timeless.}

I've been scouring thrift stores & estate sales for these perfect vintage treasures. To my surprise, I've acquired quite a collection.

{I'm planning to make a sewing machine cover out of them.}

In the meantime, I thought I'd share this beautiful, doily lantern tutorial with you. It's one of my favorites. What are some of your favorite doily crafts??

Gypsy Heart.

Oh, how I'd love to live in a gypsy caravan.  

Whimsical. Romantic. Adventurous. 
Over the weekend, I went on a little day trip up to Healdsburg & the Sonoma Coast. These little caravans are the perfect dwellings for the Redwood Forest.

Oh, to dream...
