DIY or Buy a mountain pillow

Crafty folks: I love the fuzzy shearling “snow” on this adorable mountain pillow – it’s such a fun touch! Learn how to make your own over at Design Sponge.

Not-so-crafty folks: If you tend to use your sewing machine more as a fancy paper weight than for actual sewing projects (ahem, like yours truly), you may be better off buying this plush pillow from Three Bad Seeds. Bonus: It comes in 4 pretty colors!

If you can’t get enough of the mountain trend, be sure to check out the DIY mouse pad I put together a while back!

flower xrays by brendan fitzpatrick

April showers bring May flowers…ghostly see-through ones, in this case! I can’t stop staring at these fascinating flower x-rays by photographer Brendan Fitzpatrick – just look at the intricate layers of that single rose! This unusual perspective just goes to show that flowers are beautiful from the inside out.

Isn’t this such a pretty color palette? Love the nautical feel of these dainty baubles from Porcelain and Stone, which are all handmade in Somerville, MA – my old college town!
