Tuesday Musing

I found this wonderful color inspiration for my Tuesday Musings on Pinterest of course!  I absolutely love this entire outfit...so boho chic!  I took this as inspiration to find some wonderful women entreprenuers workspaces....

I certainly believe that your creative workspace influences your projects...your creativity is either enhanced or smoothered by this space.  Clean up that clutter...dig through those vintage finds, get rid of those stale old ideas you thought were great ten years ago and agree to incorporate only the best into your here and now!  Every girl could take some musing from Aerin Lauders lovely office space{she has a new launch incoming summer 2012}.  We all need a corner to base our operations from and her space is exquisite, no!?  I do love the color palette, the shiny silver desk and the mix of the antique chairs.  Glam Gorgeousness!

A color palette that I'm loving for beauty is this bronze mixed with icy grays and creams.
via Burberry...check it out!

Can you say RockStar Glam... i Love this jacket!

This luxe office space is clean cut and wide open for inspirational brain storming!  I love this easy color palette again... wide open windows for lots of light on the drawing board.  Comfortable wingchairs for hours of contemplation and planning.

Speaking of planning... here's a fabulously glamtastic idea for a different kind of guest book.  Found via ElizabethAnneDesigns.  This is so luxe and innovative... No more blah sign in books!

 The Wish Tree is a Dutch wedding custom where guests are given a piece of paper, either shaped like a leaf or made of card stock. The guests write their wishes to the bride and groom and then hang it on the tree. This creates a gorgeous centerpiece and the tree is placed at the entrance to the reception to wow your guests right when they walk in.
You can later use these cards along with photos of your guests from the wedding to create a fab memory book.

Willow branches sprayed gold + strands of glass crystals + cards waiting for wishes = Wedded Bliss!
I see they've used a clear glass container to hold the branches... {thinking that this will need to be weighted down quite well...  using a fabulous urn with bricks hidden in the bottom and moss would be a great alternative to the clear glass...which will be hard to hide weights in.}

The Queen's Diamond Jubilee

I found some lovely items from Rachel Ashwell's Shabby Chic Couture collection that commemorate
 The Queen's Diamond Jubilee to share with you all.   Also found a ton of information about how she came to the throne.  Its all so interesting!  Well hope you all enjoy!
This adorable pink bow and crown pin is fab!
The Queen was born at 2.40am on 21 April 1926 at 17 Bruton Street in Mayfair, London.
She was the first child of The Duke and Duchess of York, who later became King George VI and Queen Elizabeth.
At the time she stood third in line of succession to the throne after Edward, Prince of Wales (later King Edward VIII), and her father, The Duke of York. But it was not expected that her father would become King, or that she would become Queen.
 The Princess was christened Elizabeth Alexandra Mary in the private chapel at Buckingham Palace. She was named after her mother, while her two middle names are those of her paternal great-grandmother, Queen Alexandra, and paternal grandmother, Queen Mary.
The Princess's early years were spent at 145 Piccadilly, the London house taken by her parents shortly after her birth, and at White Lodge in Richmond Park.
She also spent time at the country homes of her paternal grandparents, King George V and Queen Mary, and her mother's parents, the Earl and Countess of Strathmore.
Rachel Ashwell, Shabby Chic Couture, Endurance Banner,  I thought this is perfect since she has served for 60 years.

 In 1930, Princess Elizabeth gained a sister, with the birth of Princess Margaret Rose. The family of four was very close.  When she was six years old, her parents took over Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park as their own country home. In the grounds of Royal Lodge Princess Elizabeth had her own small house, Y Bwthyn Bach (the Little Cottage), which was given to her by the people of Wales in 1932.

Princess Elizabeth's quiet family life came to an end in 1936, when her grandfather, King George V, died. His eldest son came to the throne as King Edward VIII, but, before the end of the year, King Edward VIII had decided to give up the throne in order to marry the woman he loved, Mrs Wallis Simpson.
Upon his abdication, Princess Elizabeth's father acceded to the throne as King George VI, and in 1937 the two Princesses attended their parents' coronation in Westminster Abbey.
Princess Elizabeth was now first in line to the throne, and a figure of even more intense public interest.

Happy Queen's Diamond Jubilee
Happy Sunday Evening!
