A Thousand Threads

Friday Link Love

How much do you love red lipstick?  I am a true believer that nothing is more flattering than the right shade, and Sydney (of The Daybook) is proving me right today.  I think I may spend a large chunk of my weekend perfecting that look right there.  Fall is just around the corner, after all.

… by the way, can we just talk about the proliferation of so many unbelievably gorgeous soon-to-be mommas on the internet?  I would give my left lung to look this amazing when I’m pregnant.

I would give my left lung to look this amazing on my wedding day, actually.

In the mean time, here are a few links for Friday…

A grouping of pretty little things for your kitchen.  My kitchen?  Yes, please!

One of my favorite new style blogs.  I can’t believe I’ve never been before.

This tiny yellow submarine makes me smile… I think it needs to come home with me.

I adore this DIY dessert table backdrop from Lauren of Lauren Elise Crafted on Postcards and Pretties.

Great “Save or Splurge” letterpress advice from Suann of Simplesong Design on 100 Layer Cake.

An adorable idea for asking your bridesmaids and groomsmen.

Pretty paper garlands from InkWhimsy on The Inspired Bride.

The cutest Christmas engagement shots ever.

Threads of Love

I had to make sure this pretty little photo shoot by Bunch Studio, posted on Style Me Pretty yesterday, made it onto the blog.  Not only is it adorable — with all its crafty charm (I love the yarn streamers!!) — it also pulls its inspiration from the same quote that inspired the name of my blog!

“Chains do not hold a marriage together.  It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads which sew people together through the years.  That is what makes a marriage last more than passion or even sex!”
~ Simone Signoret
