After a year of house hunting and building we finally closed on our house today and are officially home owners. Craig and I are so excited for this next chapter in our lives. And of course I can’t wait to decorate. I am going to be spending the next week or two away from the blog getting the house in order. There is so much to unpack. But feel free to follow along on instagram.

Even though I am not much of a flower lover at home, I love me some beautiful flower jewels any day of the year. I am always on the hunt for colorful vintage flower brooches when shopping for my jewelry business. I love to turn them into pendants. My favorite pieces to shop for usually have alot of colorful faux stones and enamel. And I love the pins to be fairly large in size. I always find some inspiration in fine jewelry before I head out in search of costume versions more in my price range.

I have never been much of a flower girl when it comes to decorating my home. I guess I would rather spend my money on a new pair of shoes or a necklace rather then blooms that will only last maybe a week tops. Now that we are closing on our house in a few days, I feel like it would be special to add some fresh flowers every now and then. The only problem is that my cats go crazy for flowers and plants. And by crazy I mean they meow at the top of their lungs trying to attack flowers both real and faux. I think I will have to sneak my bouquets past them when they are napping and have them live only in my office/guest room. Hopefully when they come in for a visit they won’t notice or else all bets are off. I am in love with the floral arrangements below especially all of the shades of pink. Which is my color inspiration for my office. I also will be on the look out for vintage vessels that I can use to hold my flowers. Vintage tea tins would look lovely, don’t you think?

Craig and I found out that we are closing on our house a day early . So Thursday, April 17th will be a very special day for us. And it gives us an extra day and a half to furniture shop too which is amazing. Adding new items to my spring and summer wardrobe won’t be happening any time soon. Buying a few new pieces of jewelry is an easy way to update and existing wardrobe and make it feel a little more fresh and current. I will be on the look out for vintage bow costume jewelry because I love how feminine and lady like they are. Below are some favorite fine jewelry bows.

With spring in full swing here in Austin, all I want to do is shop for some new accessories. Unfortunately, all shopping is on hold since we have to furnish a 2500 sq ft house. I am not complaining though because I love shopping for the home and am so grateful to soon have our own house to shop for. Below are some bow accessories that I love. Happy shopping if you are in the market to indulge!

Since we are closing and moving into our house next Friday and Saturday I have decorating on my mind all of the time. I feel like the weeks are in slow motion right now because I am so ready to be living in our new house. One of the rooms I am most excited to decorate is my office/guest room. Also known as my “boudoir” which will be the girliest room in the house and my private oasis. I picture my walls covered in prints of Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, vintage Vogue covers, and vintage pinups. I would also love to hang an illustration of one or two of the bow prints below. They are extremely feminine and the perfect vibe I want to portray in that room.
I think this is the print I would choose because it is from the 1960′s and has both a bow and flowers.
yes ma’am girl with bow.
Cat in a Bow. Would love to dress my boys like this ASAP.
This vintage pinup would blend in well with my collection.
The most beautiful shoe I have ever seen.
This watercolor is perfection. I want to dress just like this model from vintage French Vogue.
In love with the pop’s of pink in the bow and lips of the model.
