life is a special occasion

I have some exciting news! Not only did I find time to snap some outfit photos with my boyfriend, but now I am officially the mother...

...of a fish! Yes, a gorgeous Betta fish that we named "Denny" after the place that we had our first get together (a restaurant called Denny's). My co-workers threw me a surprise apartment-warming party and Denny was one of the gifts - I was definitely surprised when I opened that box! We love having him, especially because our apartment doesn't allow other pets.

Look how well he matches our bookshelves! And speaking of our bookshelves, they are filling up quite nicely. I am in love with these whale bookends...and the bunny ones are definitely the cutest I have ever seen! Both sets were acquired during my employment at a thrift store. Here's a peek into our book collection...the shelves are almost full and we still have book boxes to unpack...

I love treasure hunting at second hand stores, and the other day I found this darling plant holder - just what we needed! I also found some vintage trays that fit in it perfectly. (Also, I am falling in love with ladders as genius decorating items...)

Finally yesterday I got some free time to sit down and create our first wall decoration. The flags are cut out of old greeting cards, envelopes, and pages (rescued from a random rubbish bin) out of an old paperback edition of All Things Wise and Wonderful.
