I heart: Pattern!

Wow. It’s been a bit since I’ve posted. hmmm….summer seems to be getting away with me. I am beginning to work on the specifics of the fall line so color and pattern have been taking over my world. Here is a bit of inspiration for you.

Today I have a mild obsession over plates. I could hardly take my eyes off this fab wall of plated goodness via the nest. And how chic is this china from etsy?

Hello, Guest.

We’re on the search for a home these days. I haven’t lived in a “real” house for 10 years now. While apartment life has it’s perks, I’ve officially outgrown our space. Running a business out of your living room isn’t all it’s cracked up to be! The house hunt has lead to some pretty interesting places, to say the least! I look forward to the day when guests can come and stay in a room like one of these, however. Here’s to pretty homes!

Gift Guide: in black & white

Well. I finally learned how to knit. Mind you, I said knit, not purl (for those of you who know what that means). I didn’t realize there was a whole new language I would have to learn. And why, oh why, are those tutorials so maddening? I am, however, proudly wearing my first knit piece…a cowl. And I’m addicted. Something about pretty balls of yarn and using your fingers to transform them….pure genius. Anyone have a good yarn supplier? I think I’m going to need it!

Here’s #2 in my series of gift guides. What says “Merry Christmas” better than classy black and white?
