Two Things i Love... Around my Home.

First of all, let me tell my fiance what a wonderful time i had on our staycation. The Craddock Terry Hotel is gorgeous with it's architectural charms (i love exposed brick), picnic basket breakfast served to your door in the morning, the delicious waterstone pizza in the next building- connected to the hotel- made for a lovely dinner... everything was magical. But most of all, i loved staying up late with you, enjoying the HUGE tub with whirlpool goodness, sharing a bottle of wine and just talking. I loved that more than anything. THANK YOU husband-to-be. You are my life. xoxo

It's Tuesday, so besides LOST, that means another fun round of decor show-and-tell at BacWoods Fern. My two things today are special to me, because they are pressies from my dear friends.

i love my La Dolce Vita sign, a Christmas gift from my bestie Marisa. Underneath, is the sweetest heart garland from my dear friend Melissa at Design Delights. She sewed them just for me, and sent them along in the sweetest Valentine card. I strung them up right in the entryway leading to our kitchen. The 2nd picture is what you see when you come through our front door; the hearts frame my "amore" sign up on top of our cupboards perfectly. I love it!

the second thing i am loving at Casa di M is our new All Modern Flask & 8 piece (only 4 are shown here) serving set. This was a lucky giveaway win hosted by my friend Adrienne at Mustard Seed Collective. Seriously, i was the girl who never won at raffles/silent auctions... I have been feeling pretty lucky lately. I'm glad i won these cos Max really liked them and i told him that once i meet friends in our new city, i couldn't wait to invite them over and use these beautiful pieces.

thank-you M, Melissa, & Adrienne!!! your kindness is just ONE of the reasons i adore you all so. If you haven't met these 3 friends of mine, you really should say hello. Their corners of the internet are my daily reads.

& If you don't know M, that's really just crazy cos she's my best friend and i always talk about her *wink.

come play along on Kassi's blog!

I love your sign and your heart garland. You have some really lovely friends.

The "staycation" sounds heavenly. I could really go for one of those, and soon!

Can't wait for LOST tonight, but first I have to go for my run. Wish me luck!

(We'll discuss tomorrow, I hope!)

Finally, will try to do my two things tonight or tomorrow. I love playing along.

Your heart garland is so pretty! I always wish I could keep Valentine's and Easter decorations up all year!

You're so lucky with the giveaway wins, and I saw that you won the t-shirt! Lucky dog!

Belen said...

Oh man, I love your stuff, Micaela.

I need to get in on this!
But that's kinda hard to do cuz I still live with my parents and my house is technically done THEIR way.. and well.. it's just super Filipino, hahaha.

I wish I could show the world the type of house I've built in my head.

Oh sigh.
Now I want a boy.
I want to marry that boy.
Then have a beautiful home.
And decorate it like crazy.
And then have some lovely drinks with you and talk talk talk talk.

*sigh* I'm quite the hopeless romantic, I think.

Rhianne said...

Cassie said...

SO glad to hear you had a fab time - lucky thing! I had a peek at the hotel site and it looked stunning.

Melissa sent me a little package too and mine arrived today - isn't she just the sweetest! xx

Marisa said...

Melissa A. @ Design Delights said...

Love seeing the pictures of your place here and I'm so glad you are enjoying the hearts. Your Valentines day sounds wonderful and romantic. Especially the picnic basket by the door.

Anna said...

tiny twig said...

Jen said...

Thanks for the sweet comment on my Valentine's Day post!

Your Dolce Vita sign is gorgeous! And so fitting! Your new home looks adorable, and I'm a tad jealous that it is decorated with such care, thought and sentiment.

Glad you had a good time on your stay-cation. It sounds wonderful and like a good bonding experience for you and the future hubs. I think me and the boyfriend need one of those as soon as he slows down with work!

Cynthia said...
