Just discovered this awesome chocolate company that lets you customize your own chocolate bar combinations! You can add up to five ingredients (spices, nuts, candy, herbs, even 23 karat GOLD flecks!) to a dark, milk, or white chocolate base. All starting at around $3.85 a bar (not including extras), it ain't cheap. This particular combination I made up would end up costing me $15. FOR ONE BAR.
But hey, great idea to rip off and maybe do on my own at home? They even do bulk orders for parties or weddings, allowing you to put your own photo in the middle of the dang chocolate bar!

Also happened to stumble upon these great black and white photos from the set scenes of Mad Men. I love this show, although I am ashamed to say I am behind by like 2 seasons, practically. Saving them all up for a crazy Mad Men marathon weekend party, I suppose?
Joan is my idol.
-Also just discovered this really awesome artsy design blog that has sucked me in a bit these past few days: Lox Papers.
-Instructions for how to build your own log cabin. So freaking rad. Ever since I was little and had a log cabin building doll-house set, I have had dreams of living in one some day. This might just be what I need to make that dream come true!
-Design Squish, a blog about all things I adore: nature, trees, art, design, sustainable living.
-Eight sweet lavender recipes from the Kitchn, in addition to sweet potato cakelets and jack o'lantern cocktails.
-Also completely in love with this wallpaper over at ModCloth (that is temporarily out of stock). That website is dangerous.
I actually DO need some wall hooks and these might be a winner...
Now as far as food goes, here are some recipes that have me excited:
Holy moley. I just need some extra time, money, and energy. I WANT TO MAKE EVERYTHING!
