Well, for my age (which I decline to tell you dears, for you would probably gasp and question me for being so darn mature...to which I will not be able to answer you), I believe that you can never stop being excited for school ending. It may be really childish of me, but forgive me as I have time to grow. I finished a very exciting school year and now have to clean and organize my room. And as my childish instincts tell me, "I don't wanna!!!." But as the mature side of me says, " Stop being sulky and do it already! It's been almost a month since you have moved into your new home and you still have yet to pick everything up."

So I am creating a studio/bedroom so I don't have to harass my dad into making me a work area in some remote corner of the hose. I figured that since I have a rather large closet space now and a dresser in which I can use as some sort of desk area, might as well give it a shot. But I do love clutters. I do. Subconsciously. I love organization, but too much organization can cause me to become really anal about things. Which is not good. Not good at all.
Here are some lovely places I have seen:
+ Oh this place is adorbs! I love it ( above ).
+ I LOVE this wallpaper. I NEED it.
+ Hehe. I think this just fits my mood perfectly.


Good Deed of the Day

Nancy of prettylittlethieves has a great way for you to do some good while you shop! She was also lovely enough to donate an item to the very first ever giveaway here on umbrellastand!

If you buy a print from her DRAWING FOR A CURE line, she will donate $10 to the

leukemia and lymphoma society. All prints are originals, so get them while you can!



the lovely Sofia Barao is giving away one of her amazing wallpaper necklaces!

visit her blog for how to enter the giveaway and look at some pretty things.
her blog is quite pretty!


My weekend was spent in tears. Lots of them. Then I made this necklace to officially start off my Summer 09 Collection. It's a bit different than what I usually do, but I think it looks pretty good. I still kept my usual chandelier in there, so maybe it still has a touch of familiar...

You can purchase my new adventure here <3

Today I Like


Bleu Wallpaper Gathered Skirt; $35 by desirapesta <3
Desira is a one-woman team. It seems like a lot of work,so she must be
pretty darn amazing! She designs the most darling and slightly daring
clothing with a small touch of circus and clean lines. I've been looking at this skirt
for a very long time. So lovely! Check out her shop for more lovely clothing!

See her website for more bits : www.desirapesta.com

floral cotton lawn needlebook; $18 by fieldguided <3
Fieldguided is the work of the lovely Anabela and Geoff. They are lovely!
I like to use their blogs and website as my virtual inspiration blog since my
bulletin board seems to be afraid of going up on the wall
( I just can't seem to get that darn thing up there! ).
Visit their shop for more vintage cuteness! See their website for lots of links
and a peek into their days : www.fieldguided.com

* this is going to be my major focus throughout the week, so please check back often!


Dear Readers,

Sorry for the long delya of posting. My Internet was down for about a week and i was completely swamped with emails and things that needed tending to, so i was glued to the computer for days.

Well. I'm here. Almost unpacked. Unfortunately my stress has not gone away with all the boxes. But today was a good day. I've started creating and designing the Summer 09 Collection, which is the first I will be doing. This will be pretty exciting. I've recently ordered lots of things from all over the world and it's going to arrive on my doorstep eventually.

Speaking of packages, I apologize to the winners of the giveaway. All packages will be shipped off tomorrow. I have finally unearthed them in the mess of things!

Also, I got some pretty cute things from my favorite shop ever! More about that later.

Have a lovely week ahead!
<3 Melissa

Today I Like [ I Just Can't Get Enough ]

i love floral cabs. i just want to put them on everything! hope you guys had a lovely weekend! i will be super busy so i won't be posting as much.

new items will be added mid may perhaps as well as a shop makeover! i have already begun the process but will be changing things little by little.


May Showers Bring Me Flowers

i know the saying's supposed to be april, but as of late it has been storming way to much in may, so it was more fitting.

anyway, i am almost moved in! i just got a huge shipment of things and i got really excited, and made myself [ this ] ring

and the grey hue in the sky made the hue of the flower absolutely brilliant. i usually go big cocktail rings, but i am never taking this one off. ever.

i also made a page on facebook. won't you be a lovely fan? check it out [ here ]
and i made a new banner for umbrellastand and rainboots. follow the links on the left to see!

have a lovely weekend all!
