We will wear compassion

I am going to take part in this "Music Monday" thing and introduce you to one of my favorite bands. Top 5, maybe #2, depends on what day you ask me.
The bad news, they broke up about a year ago to be with their families.

Their name,

As Cities Burn

This is a band that if you really listen to their songs, it can change your world. They are a Christian band, though they are not afraid in their songs to question life and their sins, and a lot of it is dark, but it is so inspiring at the same time. This band has brought me many amazing memories, and clarity when I needed it.

check it out.

Get a playlist! Standalone player Get Ringtones did not have this available so I HAD to get it off youtube, a must hear

(by the way there is another playlist at very bottom of page with some of my favorites)

Have an enchanting day!

Five days until my cousin's wedding! Very busy week.

Be Still My Heart

Tomorrow I am embarking on an adventure with my mom to West Palm, a trip we have made a hundred times before, but this time is for something magical: to help prep for final week before my cousin's wedding, in which I am a bridesmaid. Beyond thrilled!!!!

For a quickie I am just going to leave you with some of my favorite photos in my "inspiration" folder.

The HAIR!!! Pearl Harbor harbors some of my most inspiring fashion.

STARDUST! I would like to visit Stormhold

=D Big Fish

Penelope! hate the dress, love her room(and the rest of the movie) so enchanting

Who was not inspired by this year's Winter Olympics? The opening ceremony was incredible. I want one of those beanies sssossssssooososososo bad

A photo many of us have seen... adorable little stubborn girl. I know how it feels, my dad was in the navy up until I was 14, served 22 years.

My girl. I have this in a collage, framed on my wall, the original from the ElleGirl issue.

Omgosh I could go on and on about this photos and all the others from that Teen Vogue shoot. I am so in love with them, the fashion, the sets, the girl in the photos.

rawr, ok while I love these photos, they are not my favorite of all favorites. I forgot that I have yet to retrieve my old photos from my dad - had computer issues a few months ago and he completely redid my laptop, reloaded windows, etc... and had to transfer all my files to his computer, which I have yet to get all back. He says my pictures will take hours, so when I was just home visiting I did not feel like dealing with it, but now that I am home for the summer.... rescue mission.
the main thing I am missing is my architect/interior design photos....and a lot of other misc things.

thanks for stopping by!

Time Awaits

(oops this was sitting in my "drafts")

I have a fascination with clocks, no particular reason, but I love them. Cookoo, giant, mini, pocket, pendant, bell towers that ring on the hour. One day I hope to own a grandfather clock, my favorite of all the clocks.

Here are some ravishing clocks that I found:

One of my "summer project" plans is to make a clock or two. Since crafts stores sell the clock pieces, it seems like it would be pretty simple to just assemble on any object I want. An old hardback book is at the top of my list to attempt, I think it would look pretty need on my shelf.

Have an enchanting day!!!

I'm Back

and so my summer begins

Well I have barely begun my blog and I have already went m.i.a. for a bit.
I went through finals week and then moving back home for the summer. I am finally all unpacked and my room looks like my room again. Which is very exciting to me, I love my room, it has look about the same since I was a freshman in high school and here I am finished with my freshman year in college.

Question: Am I the only one who has a folder in pictures called "inspiration?" & every time you see a photo of something you want to try to create or just something...inspiring, you save it to the folder? Mine has gotten so big. I have it broken down into folders of different people too, and a blog folder with more sub folders of ideas for blogs. If you do not have one I suggest starting one, it is fun to look at.

Be back later for more.
have an enchanting day!
