The West Elm and Etsy event was fun! My spot was right next to the sweets table, not sure how that happened but you know I didn’t complain. It was super fun meeting so many wonderful folks in person, grabbing a churros or two, downing a truffle and coming home with some crazy good printed goods for the house. They are all by Sara Lee Parker who screen prints them right here in Georgia using organic cotton. I came home with a set of napkins, tea towel and this Crepe Myrtle pillow case. Funny thing is I made them a wedding topper two years ago when we both lived different places and yet somehow our paths crossed again–I love it when things like that happen!
And look, even her price tags are screen printed awesome. Inspiring.

I got it for me, made by Cassandra Smith, whose work I think I originally saw as part of Printshop Forever. (Heads up from Faythe.)

I have been pulling all nighters like I’m 22 in between the silence so I “forced” a quick vacation on myself. Saw many wonderful folks in Portland–you all are awesome and incredibly sweet, and spent time chilling and running around town with my West Coast family. I picked up some red clogs from the same company (though different name) as my favorite old pair.
Troentorp clogs, originally sold under the name Bastad. Designs and details here. Lots of stuff (fabric) was bought and even more eaten. Spent this weekend vending at Wedding Day Hooray and lots of good stuff was eaten there that I’m psyched to be back and finding even more awesome stuff made locally again. Details coming on all that goodness.

I’m a reluctant purse person. I carry a bag. At some point last year, I decided I wanted my first real purse and half-heartedly looking around for the perfect one. Surprisingly, this one came for my birthday. I absolutely adore it and it’s perfect. From a dear friend, thank you.

Heart clay tags for the tops of my wedding topper boxes. Perfect to display or use as an ornament after the box has been ripped open. Made by freckledlaundry. I am also working with several other designers to collaborate on some keepsake bell jar display options for my custom toppers. They are incredible!! Should be coming in another month.

These curtains by Fred Shand were hung in my studio around the new year. They were on sale here. The linen is so wonderful and they are beautifully made and fully lined. We’re digging in these days between the snow, ice and trying to hang on as one of our cats has become incredibly sick.
