ALDER & CO

On my mind lately, spring textiles. I'm heavily crushing on the color blush. I am not a traditional pink lover, not big on bubblegum and neon pink. But adding touches of blush, off white and gold around the house seems to be the antidote to the winter blues. I love these blush cloth napkins (perfect for an easter tablesetting) and have my eye equally on the blush tea towels. And how cool is this sparkle flower garland? So cool in a nursery, or for a wedding decoration. And please tell me who doesn't need a pink & gold bottle opener!? Check out more pretty textiles here.

HANDMADE

-pretty dishes-

Craving spring? Me too. Infuse a little color and whimsey with these beautiful hand-painted english porcelain "dipping" dishes. Pretty for setting a spring tablescape, give as a valentine gift (perfect size for a ring dish), or just for display in a bookshelf. Came across them here.

BOTANICAL PRINTS

-affordable art-

I'm a huge proponent of investing in that one (or more) pieces of art that you love. Save up, and buy that one that you've had your eye on forever! But for most of us, filling our homes with thousands of dollars worth of art isn't practical. For my clients, I'm always always on the hunt for unique artwork to fill those empty walls. I stumbled across this artist. Simple, pretty, affordable photography that comes in a variety of sizes, including the sometimes harder to find square sizes.

THE BOUQS CO.

-beautiful, farm fresh arrangements delivered in time for valentine's day-

Maybe it's me, but I am over online flower delivery places like ProFlowers. The bouquets are blah and pricey for unimaginative arrangements. I use a wonderful local flower shop, but when I want to send flowers to friends and family outside of Denver, it's slim pickins online. 1800 Flowers, so bad. I came across The Bouqs Co., loved their arrangements, simple and fresh, but was also intrigued by their company standards and practices. You don't often see a flower company cut on the day you order (hello freshness) and exclusively do business with eco-friendly farms. And is it just me, or are flowers wrapped in paper, versus a cheap vase, so much better. I like that the pricing includes shipping (and that there aren't a bunch off additional fees, or prompts to buy a stupid bear or cheap chocolate with my purchase). Clear pricing, I like that. And when you buy one arrangement, you can add a second arrangement for only 15 bucks! If you're searchin' for a place to send Valentine's or "just because" flowers, you might wanna check out these guys first. I'm about to send one to myself.

PAPER & STAMPS

-gorgeous wrapping paper + vintage stamps for valentine's day-

On the hunt for unique, pretty wrapping paper? Is this wrapping paper, made from recycled paper, from Etsy shop Norman's Printery not beautiful?! I ordered 12 sheets of the art nouveau paper (first photo, shipped same day). I'm nothing if not a pretty paper hoarder. It's the only thing I hoard. I can't pass it up! Liiike I could be in Paper Source all day. This paper would make a Valentine's Day gift even sweeter. And if you're sending snail mail (the best mail), I've ordered vintage stamps from here . . .
