Love Notes

I'm back and Big Sur was amazing and relaxing and I'll tell you all about it later. I finally remembered to bring my camera into work so I could upload these photos. When I saw this sweet book on Oh, Hello Friend I knew it would be the perfect pick me up gift for Captain. I made the book myself from what I could remember of the bookbinding class I took a few years ago and added little notes of quotes and messages inside. It actually took a lot longer than I thought but now we have this little book that contains our special notes forever.

UPDATE: Looks like I'm not the only one who was inspired by Oh Hello Friend!


  1. This is the sweetest thing ever. You've convinced me that I need to make a homemade guest book out of leftover doilies and polaroids.

  2. wow. i wish you were my girlfriend! haha.

  3. Emilia, I've been meaning to tell you that ever since I discovered your site (when you linked to ours) I've been reading religiously. I really love your aesthetic. Auburn and Ivory makes me want to sew pretty things and drink tea. I don't get enough girly inspiration in my life, and this is just what I need.

    Just wanted to let you know!

  4. best idea ever.
    ive been working on mine since january, ive been writing one note in it for dear fiance every day until the wedding day. i want to give it to him as his gift.
