Day of Thanks Recap {and a little launch info}

We usually have family in town or we get together with friends on Thanksgiving. This year my sister and her family were out of town and because we are in the middle of preparing for the launch of the new line…we thought low key sounded perfect. And it was. We may ban friends and family from ever coming over on a holiday again {just kidding}. All day I kept on hearing from Kelly and the kids how much they were …

Unique Gifts For The Decorator In Your Life {or yourself}

I am a little late in the day for my Friday post with gift ideas. All of the shops I share are small shops that either sell vintage or make all of their products. I hope you take a minute to look at their beautiful shops and hopefully even find a few things for someone special or yourself. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I will be back Monday with a little recap from our day and the launch …

Busy in The Studio {the launch is near}

We have been busy, busy, busy over here. We have had photo shoots, last minute alternations and finishing touches being made. We have more to do this week than we can probably get done….but we are so happy to be doing what we love! The studio is messy, the house has taken a beating, my bottom has permanently formed itself to the computer chair and the coffee is constantly brewing. We are getting there! Items are being added to the …

Handmade Christmas {The Littles}

Did you know that there are only six Fridays until Christmas? Sorry to freak you out. The truth is that we keep Christmas pretty simple around here. We don’t break the bank around here. We either try to buy homemade or make it ourselves. It means more. At least to me. There are so many creative and brilliant small businesses that it would be a shame not to support them and let them know we value their work. For the …

Summer Soiree Party Pics {wish you could have been there}

{Beware…HIGH photo content} I have been wanting to have a summer party with some of my local friends for years. I knew the only way I would actually follow through was to invite some of my out of town friends to join us. You can’t bail on a party when people get on a plane to come. I threw out the invitation to some of my favorite gals that lived all over the US and hoped that someone would be …

I had to…I couldn’t take it any longer {you should join me}

I am the kind of girl that (unfortunately) doesn’t think about birthday presents until the day before sometimes. I refuse to put up decorations of any kind unless it is for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I wrap my Christmas presents the night before Christmas. I like to celebrate one holiday at a time. I don’t even really like to begin Christmas shopping until after Thanksgiving. I will not put the Christmas tree up earlier than the day after Thanksgiving (I will …
