Welcome Back

Wow, it's been a loooong time since I've been here! So much has changed since I wrote my last post, which I think was just over a year ago. For starters, I had another baby! Matt, Ezra, and I welcomed our little Finn Wilder into our lives on September 11, 2013, and he's brightened our world! Some other big things include selling Newport Wedding Glam and growing Blueflash so much that it's blowing up! We've been busy and exciting things are happening, so I hope you'll stick around to hear more soon. Among other things, we no longer have home internet, just internet on our phones now, and that's the main reason I haven't been blogging. It's rather inconvenient to type entire blog posts on one's phone! If any of you out there do it on the regular I give you a lot of credit! Anyway, for now, you can find me on instagram (I'm taracceleste), but I hope to be around a little more often. Blogging has been part of my life for a few years and I'd like to keep up with it a bit more, so thanks for hanging around here while I figure things out and regain my footing here. I've missed you!

hello weekend

So things have been a bit quiet around here and they may be for a little while as Matt and I get a handle on everything over at Newport Wedding Glam. My first post went live yesterday which was fun, check it out here, if you'd like to see. Last night we had a little tea party with some friends (our tea parties always consist of tea and homemade ice cream... an odd combination but we love it) and I'm wiped because we didn't wrap things up until almost midnight. I'm taking today to do some last minute things for Matt's bridal show this weekend and other than that I hope to do nothing. What do you have going on?

- who can resist a little golden hippo?
- the cutest little card table play house
- how to eat a pomegranate, illustrated
- some really good thoughts on how to start new habits, with free printables! (which I'm already using)
- another great free printable, this one's a blog planner
- I love seeing local weddings on big blogs and this one in Jamestown is beautiful
- one week this month I'm making seven meals in seven days

It's 2013!

We slept right through the beginning of 2013 last night and I have to say I don't regret it one bit. If you saw my post on facebook yesterday then you know that Matt (who launched a site redesign yesterday) and I recently bought Newport Wedding Glam, a blog dedicated to featuring the glamorous weddings and wedding service providers in Newport and greater Rhode Island. Matt and I have tons of ideas for the site and we're working hard to get things off the ground in the coming weeks, so we've been up pretty late most nights this past week and I knew we wouldn't make it to midnight last night. In fact, we didn't even try. Anyway, if you're planning a wedding in the Rhode Island area be sure to check out Newport Wedding Glam! And if you're a local vendor, feel free to contact us about advertising and membership in the Newport Glam Guide :) So that's our big news for the beginning of the year... wish us luck!

the tiny hummingbird | best of 2012


Another year gone by and once again I have big plans for the blog in this coming year. I didn't get around to everything I wanted to do around here in 2012, so hopefully 2013 will bring some shiny new things at the tiny hummingbird. Before we get in to all that, here's a look at the most popular posts from this year...

January - washi tape gift tags | February - DIY business cards | March - how to clean a cast iron pan | April - my new profile pic photo shoot  | May - a tropic Dutch baby | the most delicious breakfast | June - a day at the zoo & my big backyard | July - a very popular weekend post | August - I seem to have disappeared this month. Must have been all that preparing for Paris! | September - where to shop in Paris | October - what to do with Brussels sprouts | November - Ezra turns 2! A School Bus Birthday | December - craft night at Anthropologie

As always, thanks for reading! It means a lot that to me out of all the websites out there, you guys take a few minutes each day to come here. Here's to 2013 and all it holds!

hello weekend

So much is going on around here lately that I haven't had much time to think about this weekend yet! I do know that we have plants to visit La Salette to see the lights tomorrow night as long as the weather cooperates, and that on Sunday we're hosting a little blueflash Christmas party. I'm just starting to plan things for it now, so wish me luck!

On a different note, let's continue to remember the Sandy Hook community in our prayers.

To start off the link list, here's...
a small way to help
- another house tour that I love
- I want to make my own beeswax candles
- definitely adding tomato soup and grilled cheese croutons to my next menu!
- why didn't I think of making pom pom magnets before?
- did you know that feather slips exist? via ardor
- love these fun color block gift tags
this little girl's room is like a party every day
- I love the idea of giving just four gifts for Christmas

Have a great weekend doing all your last minute preparations for Christmas on Tuesday! Have a very merry one :) I'll see you back here soon!
