Two years ago I started a little corner of my own on the world wide web called Blue Eye Brown Eye. Thanks to everyone who has read the blog, participated, commented, and supported it. It’s crazy to see how this blog has grown into a business, and I cannot wait to see what more is in store. Happy 2nd Birthday Blue Eye Brown Eye!

While perusing the internets I came across Antiquaria, an amazing shop/blog that features a registry option for vintage china. Genius! What I love most is this mix and match gold China set that you can purchase. I mean, it’s amazing! I can just picture a delightful dinner party featuring all of these patterns and tones.
All of this china reminded me of my china set (see below), which I did not register for, but bought at an estate sale. It’s a full set – including serving pieces, platters, and the cutest tiny espresso cups – that I got for less than $200! I have several friends that did not register for china when they got married, and I thought about doing the same. However, when this estate sale find popped into the picture I just had to take it. I then developed a setting around the china – including stemware and flatware.
Did you register for china? Will you register for china?

In case you didn’t know, my family and I are intense, bleeding blue, Dirk-obsessed Mavs fans. This championship has been long-awaited and oh so sweet! So did I get up at 5 am and wait for hours in the Texas heat just to make sure I’d get good pictures at the Victory Parade? Of course. This is one of my favorites. GO MAVS!

Images from an elegant wedding suite that wrapped up this week. This set is letterpress printed on the lightest pink deckle edge paper that is just the most delicious paper you’ve ever seen. The bride, Jene’, is going to have a gorgeously classic wedding in August and I cannot wait to see pictures from the event.
