Celebrate Good Times, Day at a Time

Happy Birthday, Dearest.




How blessed I am to have you as my friend. You have brought so much happiness, laughter and “girliness” into my life. You are quite possibly the sweetest and kindest person I know. You always bring a smile to my face when I see you. And every time I do, I just want to run up and hug you and tell you everything that has happened in the last week since I saw you last and hear absolutely all of the details of yours. I look forward to refurbishing many furniture pieces in the future, going on lots of girly trips and spoiling ourselves on shopping trips. You, my dear are my friend and I am thankful for you.

Happy Birthday!

Love – Aubrey

A New Pair.





I finally did it. I got a new pair of glasses. Something different. Something new. And then with my new spectacles, I walked the town. I saw everything clearly. And now it’s time to catch up on Downton Abbey with these new spangled lenses.

See Eyewear, you’re the best. Thank you for my awesome Hemingway glasses. I think they’re the bomb.com. What do you think? Tell it.

Happy Friday, Friends.

Day at a Time, My Designs

Instagram thang.


Hey there. I’m back so soon! Check me out on Instagram and maybe hit that little follow button. You might like what you see and if you do…. Leave me a comment! If you don’t, well you could tell me if you really wanted to, I guess. See ya over there.

Seriously, Paper Typography.







Wow, have you ever seen something so beautiful. I’ve pinned a few of these and finally decided to actually follow the link. One took me to No Man’s website, the other took me where I wanted to be! The blog provided me a link to this incredible artist’s page.

Now to introduce Sabeena Karnik. Here is her beautiful work. PLEASE check it out. It’ll brighten your day and could even give you a wild urge to make your own PAPER TYPOGRAPHY. I mean who wouldn’t want to! I think I might just make it my craft this weekend. If you end up trying it, even on a mini scale, comment with your picture. I’d love to see how it turns out!

Last week I attended a Paint and Mingle – “Pingle” party at my lovely friend, Ada’s house. We all brought canvases, paint and yummy snacks. I’m thinking I need to have a Paper & Typography – “Papography?” party. How fun does that sound!? Everyone bring paper and snackssss! Talk to me. We’ll plan.

On that note, Happy Thursday, Friends!

And We’re Back…

Well, hello there. It’s been a bit. I have now begun the semester, as of yesterday and even have a new job prospect. Monday was my last day at the amazing orthodontist I worked for over two years. It was a sad day in Aubrey World, but I’m excited for what’s to come. It looks like I’ll be spending more time designing for an incredible cosmetic dentist who I absolutely adore and am really looking forward to it. And that’s the latest update on my side of the universe.

I took a little break from blogging to reevaluate what it is I want to bring to this blog world. My passion is fashion (I know horrible rhyme), but unfortunately I just don’t have a way of capturing all of the fun outfits I like putting together at the moment, so until then – my new focus for 2013 and Bless Your Sweet State, is life and design. I’ll share my thoughts on life, the latest designs and designers I’m obsessing over and I’ll probably end up sneaking a few fashion pieces a few times a month. And because you’re my readers, if there are any topics you’d like me to write about or absolutely anything you want to know about ME or specifics about design – leave a comment! I always LOVE hearing from you!

So, Happy New Year from Bless Your Sweet State. I can’t wait to see what’s next.

Happy Wednesday, Friends.
