{happy weekend!}

How is it Friday already?!  This week has completely flown by for me – which I’m sure is at least partly due to the fact that I seem to be testing my limits regarding the total number of projects that I can handle all at once.  This weekend is shaping up to be a working weekend for me, but this kind of busy is the best kind of busy, so I’m not complaining.  I hope you all have fun plans for the weekend!  But in the meantime…

…a few links for your weekend reading!

…and just in case you missed it, a quick summary of this week’s posts:

That’s it for me this week!  I hope you all have a fantastic weekend, and I’ll see you back here on Monday!

Personalized Map Prints

My husband was a history major in college, so we have quite the collection of vintage maps and antique globes going on in our apartment.   Our love for maps doesn’t stop with the antique variety, however, and these personalized map prints from JHill Design are pretty cool!

The prints can be customized with names, a date, and details like longitude and short sentimental memories from an occasion.  Wouldn’t they make lovely gifts for weddings, anniversaries, or even new babies?

Musée Wedding Photo Album

I’m usually more likely to get really excited about a great wedding guestbook idea, but when Justine Ungaro sent over this amazing (and eco-friendly) wedding photo album that she created for her friends and recent clients, with beautiful cotton pages and embossed details, I knew it was just way too beautiful not to share!

Eco-Friendly-Wedding-Photo-Album

The album is from the Musée line by Queensberry and uses 100% cotton paper from Arches in France, with a cover made from fine European leather and wrapped with beautiful ribbon (for those of you not into leather, Queensberry also offers fabric cover options).

The photographs in the album are actually matted, giving the album a more classic and archival feel than some of the more recent flush mount albums.

Of course, Justine’s lovely images make the album even more beautiful!  Justine did a little write-up about this album on her blog, and you can see more of her beautiful work right here!
