Hello, Inspiration (via Matchbook)

Thank you, Matchbook Magazine, for providing a welcome relief to the daily doldrums.  The new issue is full of fabulous inspiration...  from fashion, to design, to cakes, calligraphy, and even diamond jewelry.  Here are some of my favorite pages...


LOVE the "Editors Wish List"




And, they showed me this:


I kind of love it and want to wear it this summer.




An article on Princess Diana:

(I'm not yet sick of the Royal Wedding and all related topics. I'm actually wanting more, so this was a pleasant surprise).



And, this is genius.  A Mother's Day Gift Guide (based on the editors' mothers):

love the daisy brooch.



An article on "Style Setter" Kelly Wearstler:




An article on GADABOUT owner, Hanna Brooks Nation,
and a tour through her Charleston, South Carolina home:



loving that wall of portraits, too.



The gals at Matchbook had a whole section dedicated to weddings. 
It included a feature on crazy talented calligrapher, Maybelle Isama-Stukuls:



San Francisco flower shop, Studio Choo:

I will never tire of the Jane Magnolia blossom (branches shown in a vase on the right)



And of course, New York wedding jewelers Doyle & Doyle:

I thought this was their best issue yet! And I fell in love with the same bow-t-shirt -- though I'm giving my credit card a little vacation after I abused it for a few too many weeks!

Those blooms are gorgeous and I also love the editor's picks!

Loved the Matchbook! I was totally dying over the camel Tenoversix bag in the editor's wish list and yes, the bow tee, so very cute!!
