Weekly Loves 7

In case you didn't know, I have a major thing for ducks. I love all bird like creatures, and all animals of course. But there is something about ducks that I have loved since I was a child, I think I get it from my Dad.

This kitchen is SO simple and beautiful, I love the table wrapping around the counter, and those copper lights are amazing to say the least.

These cushions are so precious, there's lots of other darling things found here.

After my friend had me make this quilt for her sister's baby, I have more quilts on the brain. I LOVE the triangles in this, love the bold, solid black. I have trouble cutting perfect triangles though, time to practice!

This illustration is too great. Laura Hughes is fantastic, more of her work is very colorful and adorable.

A vintage globe covered in vintage buttons. I can't imagine how long it would take to conquer this.
Unknown source.

This. Dress. It's so perfect, I love every little detail and I'm pretty sure it would go great with the only cowboy boots I own.

Another great illustrator. Luka Luka is just my style. Head over to her Etsy shop for super cute prints, cards, buttons and more. I'm in love!

Fall is pretty much here, and while I am not holding my breath for sweater weather, I still get excited to see pretty fall decorations and things. I LOVE this idea for wrapping paper, it's so simple and doesn't have to be just for fall, you could pair any color with wood grain and it would look so fabulous!

Speaking of sweater weather...this tutorial looks a little scary for me, throw patterns at me and I instantly go brain dead and get anxious. But! I really would love to try this, the restyle is cute and I really need more sweatery/blazer type things for whenever we finally get some cooler weather.

Other noteworthy things:
This tattoo.
This decadent looking recipe.
This hair I am oh so envy of.
Sheldon, ridiculously cute and Cody and I are SO in love.
This dress, it's pretty much perfect in every way.

What caught your eye this week?


  1. i absolutely hate birds (living in the city and being attacked by pigeons has made me callous towards them), but that duck statue thing is soo pretty! and i like that etsy print shop you shared- i'm such a sucker for cute cards like those

    1. Haha! I'm so sorry you have been attacked, at least you can still enjoy a statue and not shudder! I'm sucker for cards and things like that too! I used to always put "cute stationary stuff" on my Christmas lists as a child!

    2. haha awww that's so sweet. i just asked for barbies, barbies, and more barbies =P

  2. your quilt is v.cute! I also caught the quilting bug, I think that once you make one you just want to make more - i've got a notebook with lots of quilt ideas in but who knows when I'll have the time to make them all! That tattoo is amazing!x

    1. Thank you so so much! I know! I have a quilt I started on a little over a year ago and never finished piecing it together, It's just collecting dust and I want to get back to it!
      Happy quilting!

  3. I love the quilt too mad I'm bad at handmade other than kniting haha. but it's adorable, plus I have a love / hate relationship with the tutarial since I wanna try but I'd probably mess my sweater

    1. I would LOVE to learn to knit! You should just thrift a cheap sweater to practice on!

  4. First off, have to say I love your header image, it's awesome!
    There are so many cute things in this roundup, the cushions and that wooden wrapping paper are my favorite!
