A New Week, A New Look....

1/16/2012

Happy Monday darlings. Are Mondays happy? I'm not so sure. But nevertheless here we are at the start of one.

I have to stop and point out our lovely new blog design by the amazingly talented Aarean of La Ditta Designs. You may also know her from her popular blog, The Color Issue (it reminds me of a rainbow). Aarean worked with Kirby and I to find our perfect match when it came to the look and feel of The Short and the Sweet of It and we could not be more impressed with the result. Our blog just got a little sweeter and we hope you like it!





Speaking of color....aren't you in love with this little shop in Montmarte, Paris? Bright and beautiful. In love. {Spotted on Oh Happy Day}

Thanks Kat! Yes, they are actually globe lights in like 500 different colors. You can buy big ones, or tiny ones and string them like garlands.
