Hand-Painted Personalized Maps: Fabulous Wedding Gift Idea!

Beaus and belles, do you subscribe to Jane? Picture Groupon and Etsy getting together and having a baby…that would be Jane. Like Groupon, the site features limited time deals featuring major markdowns. Like Etsy, all of the featured items are freaking adorable, and many are handmade or sold by small business owners. Anyway, the BEST Jane deal came through my inbox today, and I have to share:

Hand-Painted Personalized Watercolor Maps by Beloved Paper - Wedding Belles Blog

That’s right: personalized 8×10 watercolor maps by Beloved Paper that you can have customized with a little heart over a specific city, along with text to indicate the special occasion. Wouldn’t these be a perfect wedding gift? I think they could also be used as decor on your big day!

At the time I am writing this, Jane has these adorable maps on sale for only $11.99 each for the next two days–such a steal! Since there is only a short time left, and because the site indicates a limited quantity, I suggest everyone hop on over there straight away and snatch them up! Of course, if you miss the deal, you can always buy them directly from Beloved Paper through their website.

Why I’m Loving Loverly Lately (and Some Hilarious/Helpful Articles)

Y’all, do you know about Loverly? It’s sort of like Pinterest, except exclusively for weddings.  I sometimes get in a groove where I really like it, then other times not so much. They have lots of  beautiful things to add to your various “bundles”, but not quite as much selection as there is on Pinterest (and you can’t upload your own photos as far as I know). My other complaint about it at first was that it mostly just featured upscale, very expensive-looking weddings, but lately it seems like they’ve started to diversify more. But, what I’ve really started to ADORE lately about Loverly are their articles. They have been killing it!! If you read the blog often, you have probably already noticed some Loverly articles linked in my Internet roundup posts. Here is a little sampling of my favorite Loverly posts lately:
