2 Fabulous Consumerism Fantastic Finds

You may have noticed that it has been a while since I have showed you things that I have purchased...that is because for the most part I haven't purchased anything in a while...which I am quite proud of, but today I made an exception for our special shopping trip for Brit's birthday adventure. {Also my birthday is coming up soon, so I decided I could get myself a couple of presents.} Anyway enough with the explanations, this is what I got:

+ Remember these little numbered canisters from Anthropologie?  Well, when I move to my new apartment, Brit and Ash got me three of them as a gift...today I completed my collection.  I also got a set of adorable hair clips and my total bill was $20. Seriously...

+ I saw this Wooden Planks Jewelry Stand online a couple of weeks ago and thought it looked interesting, but when I saw it in person in the clearance area at Urban Outfitters I was intrigued.  Although it says it is a jewelry stand, I see it as an alernative Christmas Tree...perhaps one that can be displayed year round to show off some of my non-christmas ornaments!? It may need a little bit of modification....more to come on that later.

+ I also got a Nico Skirt from J Crew in faded black.  I have been eyeing this for a while.  I am so tired of wearing jeans and boots and coats...I am ready for some shorter skirts for spring.  They only had one of these skirts in the sale section and it happened to be the exact color I wanted and in my size! Fate!

So a very sucessful shopping day filled with laughter and fun...check, check, check!

3 DIY Headboard Project

A big thanks to Allison of Mod Mischief for finding this!  I knew it was right under my nose...

The DIY headboard project I was referencing yesterday was created by Tess of Cozy Little Cave...who happens to be a talented artist and a sponsor at {Black.White.Yellow.}, so check out her shop!

I love everything about this project...a great way to make a big impact. I also love, love, love her sketch of the room...

2 Dear Spring...

Dear Spring,
Thank you for visiting for a few days, it was wonderful.  I thought you were here to stay, but the weatherman {whom I have grown to hate} tells me that you weren't quite ready.  I miss you and the warmth, flowers, and happiness that you bring.  Please come back soon...
Love,
Jess

PS.  Since the mean winter killed half of my beloved succulents, I have many empty pots to fill with beautiful flowers when you return...like these from Sunset Magazine's Easy Organic Flowers Guide

3 Flavor Paper Iris

NOLA based Flavor Paper has an awesome new wallpaper print called Iris...love the nod to Van Gogh.

A great idea for DIY art with a big impact.

I remember seeing another great version with the phrase It's Been a Hard Day's Night used as a headboard...does anyone know what I am talking about?

2 Yellow Necklace


I really love this necklace...a lot.  But, for the life of me I cannot figure out where it is from.  Can anyone help? 
Let me try this again (thanks Emily!).  I really love this necklace from Cursive Design. "a sparkling chain is threaded through a long piece of rope like lace." Simple and beautiful....um and yellow.

2 Mardi Gras!

It is alway bittersweet when Mardi Gras comes to an end.  I have to say though that this may be one of my most favorite Mardi Gras seasons ever.  The culmination was Mardi Gras day when we walking in the Saint Anne Parade with one of most favorite co-workers and friend Michael and his lovely wife Tamra.  It was amazing...there are too many pics to post here, but I am working on uploading them to my flickr account.  The theme for our group was music...so we were the Bear(ly) Naked Ladies. I think it cam out super cute {especially considering it was FREEZING outside in the morning}.  If you have never been to Mardi Gras in New Orleans, it is definetly something you should see in your lifetime...

6 Morten Holtum

Very lovely images from photographer Morten Holtum...

Things are going to be a little slow around here for a little bit.  I am in a bit of a Who Dat Haze today {this will likely last a few days, we have the celebration Saint's parade after work tomorrow}. 

It is also Mardi Gras!  Thursday is the Krewe of Muses parade {aka my favorite day of the year...yes better than Christmas} and then Tuesday is Mardi Gras, when we will be marching in the Krewe of Saint Anne.  Plus, some other great parades in between.  AND, I need to finish two costumes for the occasion...I hope to have to great pictures for you next week!
