beauty + inspiration

Little pieces of beauty + inspiration that have filled my week:

These are my very favorite plum roses.  I have found that Costco is the best place to get them, but they don't have them very often and when they do, they only seem to have one or two bunches.  When I see them, I snag them immediately.  It makes me so happy to have fresh flowers.  This photo was taken in the entry, but they have been sitting on my desk all week.

 Love these new price labels.  I made them with a paper punch, hole punch, scrapbook paper and some labels from the office supply store.  They were ridiculously inexpensive to make and I absolutely adore how they turned out.  More on making creative and inexpensive labels and tags next week.  Stay tuned!

I made this little wool flower pin a few weeks ago and I think it's adorable.  I found the tutorial here.  I am thinking about using them instead of bows on my Christmas packages this year.  It's like the gift before the gift.  Love that.

 I buy these amazing candles from Papyrus {the card and paper store}.  They have the most incredible fragrance and they last forever.  Plus they come in these super cute brown glass jars which I clean out and reuse as organizers for things like paper clips, rubber bands, etc. in my office drawers.  The jars would also work as really cute bud vases.  They are a bit spendy, {around $25}, but completely worth the splurge.  This one is the White Birch scent.  It's my current favorite, but honestly they are all wonderful.

 I found this $12 bangle at a boutique downtown.  I love bangles period, but this one is just so fun and funky.  It completely dresses up a plain outfit.  I love it.

What beautiful thing is inspiring you this week?
