My Week Through Instagram: Week Twenty & Twenty-One

I am playing catch-up here on the blog again late at night. I did say that May was going to be a whirlwind for me and I was pretty right about that. The blog has definitely suffered because of it. Feeling good about June though and hoping to get back into the swing of things. But tonight I want to recap my last two weeks through Instagram.

Week Twenty

Sunday: I had to wrap up a present for some family so I decided to use this adorable heart paper I bought awhile ago. Isn't it adorable?! A navy bow and tag were just the right touch for an adornment.

Monday: Chalkboard and jute twine...just a little peak into the DIY project I was finishing up. I'll share more this week.

Tuesday: My brother and his band left on their summer music tour on Sunday and I couldn't let him leave without giving him a few rolls of film. He has taken up photography and is quite the talented fellow. I cannot wait to see what he captures.

Wednesday: I was perfecting these little fringe flowers which became my May DIY for Whisker Graphics.

Thursday: The finished product, a simple branch with my handmade fringe flowers. I used the fabulous products from Whisker Graphics for this craft. See how I made it and view more pretty pictures here.

Friday: This long week called for a little treat...some Pinkberry. Confession: I would eat this everyday if I could, especially in the summertime. It is so refreshing.

Saturday: A quick trip to the antique store (originally to check out an old typewriter) yielded these vintage portraits instead. I am super inspired by these characters and the type and graphics at the bottom of the frames. Looking forward to doing something with them.

And now for a recap of Week Twenty-One.

Sunday: A little vignette I styled awhile ago but am still loving. Amazing stamp from my friend Tristan of Besotted Brand.

Monday: Working on my next DIY for Houzz. A friend commented that it looked very hardcore but I assure you it is actually pretty simple.

Tuesday: Paint splatters. It might not be intentional art but it is beautiful just the same.

Wednesday: I sat at my computer all day, glued to the screen. It was crunch-time finishing up a project for a client. I worked into the wee hours.

Thursday: This cheerful pink flower is blooming all over my neighborhood right now. I love how it is thriving. We finally discovered that it is called Mexican Primrose. We actually bought some at Home Depot to grow in our own front yard.

Friday: And of course we came away from Home Depot with a succulent too. One can never have enough.

Saturday: After work, I tried on a few new items at Anthropologie including this color-blocked beauty (the dress does not appear to be online...weird since it is pretty new to our store). I'm pretty in love with it, the cut and color are quite perfect. So far I'm resisting it but we'll see how long that lasts. ;)

So that was week twenty and twenty-one for me. What did yours look like?
