Week in review {March 20.09 edition}

Love this wood slice walkway that Katy Elliot spotted at the Portland ME flower show.

I found a screaming deal of a dress at Anthropologie a few months ago (I'd loved it for months and found it on the clearance rack marked down 90%!!! For real!) and have been trying to figure out how to add a purple dupioni belt. Of course Diana had the solution. I swear she has some freakishly awesome talent at finding things I love and need, even before I know I need them. How cute is this sash?

Gorgeous details from Ellie + Dave's wedding, featured on EAD. Their Atlanta venue reminds me so much of SODO Park here in Seattle--one of my faves!

Rhubarb is one of my very favorite things on earth. Mine hasn't emerged from the ground yet, but as soon as it does, I can't wait to make this rhubarb and pistachio custard tart. Sounds like heaven. And the ever-so-practical Meg featured a "wedding graduate" this week that wrote a beautiful little essay about her wedding. All that are engaged--it's your homework to read this. It will remind you to "focus on the people", and I LOVE that she decided to just trust her instincts on decisions. When the first venue she walked into was the one, others questioned why she wasn't shopping around more. She said "We're having a party there, not buying the place".
Merry Weekend! I'm off to play with jewel-toned ranunculus and anemones for a wedding at the stunning Seattle Public Library designed by Rem Koolhaas. Sunday will be a crazy-yummy dinner and a musical with friends. In between? Lots of napping I hope.
