I recently came across Quercus Design's Flickr Collections when I was searching for images of sea glass. She collects and photographs treasures she finds on the beach. I love the organized quality of the collections, and the care and attention given to each individual item.

I've craving spring temperatures and all that comes with them- including the bright and pastel colors. This palette of aqua, mint, and sea glass is currently inspiring my wardrobe and interior. So bring on the blooming flowers and morning rain.

Nautical isn't just a style, but a way of life that extends through every season. I love these old oars, lanterns, and textures that all have that rustic nautical feeling.

We have booked our beach house for this summer! I'm so excited because it gives me something to look forward to throughout these cold winter months. I can't wait to walk through the sand, taste salty seawater on my lips, collect shells along the shoreline, and curl up with the perfect beach read. Until then, these seaside finds are just what I need to hold me off until summer.

One thing that Chris misses most this time of year is hunting. He loves being out in the crisp air, listening to nature, and sitting in the tree stand watching. The few times that I've gone with him, we didn't see any deer (or even any squirrels for that matter!) but I truly enjoyed being absolutely still and feeling like I'm a part of nature. I love the colors, sounds, and textures of the leaves, tree trunks, and the changing sky. Some of the most beautiful things are the natural inspirations that only God can create.

Is everyone's pocket hurting as much as mine is right now? Recovering from the holidays and trying to pay January bills is stressful, so if you have some January birthdays coming up these gifts under $30 may be perfect trick.

Jake Owen's new album Barefoot Blue Jean Night is the perfect album to remind me of summer. I can't wait for warm nights, bonfires, and riding in the back of an old pick up truck. Each song gives me that feeling, wishing I was in an old barn surrounded by friends.

A few weeks ago I posted this DIY for a Christmas Wreath. I've taken that same wreath, pulled off the "joy" letters and winter berries, and redecorated it to make it appropriate for all year. Using the same concept of wooden letters and fake flowers, it has now become a Virginia Tech wreath. I simply painted the letters maroon and orange, hot-glued some rustic colored daisies and petals, and tied a ribbon on the wreath hook. The look and color scheme could easily be done for any team or school. I love it, but I'm not 100% sold on the ribbon. Thoughts- ribbon or no ribbon?

I'm craving the warmer weather in which dinner parties are held outside under the twinkling of bulb lights. I can't wait to sit underneath strands strung from balconies and beams while laughing with family and friends with the perfect song playing softly in the background.

Lately my eyes have been drawn to colored denim, neutral tops, and bold accessories. I love unique textures- like leather & light knits- paired together. Aren't you loving that neon cord bracelet? And the slouchy clutch? All of these pieces would be great to mix in with any wardrobe.

There's something so interesting about abandoned billboards peeling with layers of color. They tell a story of the history of advertisements they've held. They are scattered across the landscape in fields, on sides of buildings, and along roadsides. But they are also a landscape of their own- hanging on to the layers of their own history. I was drawn to the color palette of this lonely billboard photographed by the_mel on flickr. Cool steel greys provide the perfect backdrop for musky olives and streaks of rusty caramel.
