Sketches of fall

Here are a few new designs I am working on the studio right now...the colors are little off, but you get the idea. I am crazy for corduroy this fall.

Dining Room Love

Design*Sponge posted a round up of dining rooms this morning and I am so in love with this room! I love the way the child art work is displayed, all of the natural wood, brick, and high ceilings and that light fixture.  I could move in right now.
Here is a link to the rest of the swoon worthy rooms.

Donna Wilson

I love the playful and beautifully rendered work of British designer Donna Wilson! One of her vintage textile inspired throw blankets is on my lust list for sure. Her body of work is also very inspiring to me! She produces and designs everything from blankets to paper goods, hats and scarves and even dishes and stuffed animals... Yes please.

Etsy Love

The Etsy Finds email "Color Theory", this morning was my favorite in a long time. It was all about  process printing colors- cyan , magenta, yellow and black. I found a few new shops that I love- both women from Australia designing and printing their own textiles. The first is Melbomba, I am seriously in love with this bird print! I would love to recover a chair in the turquoise color....
I am also loving SpinSpin- her tea towels and pillows are really lovely.

Fall inspiration

I have been working on getting into a fall mood and putting together a new collection of designs. Usually I am SO ready for fall, but this summer has been so fun that I don't want it to end! I was digging through my clip art and found this old book from a thrift store and fell in love with the cover all over again...especially that fox!

The Tillamook County Fair

I have the most wonderful memories of the going to the Tillamook County Fair as a child (and teenager!) and it is so amazing to take my own children there and watching them fall in love with it too.  We went last weekend and it was a blast- here are a few pictures from the fair and around town...

A few new things...

A few new things in the shop tonight, and a new product too! T-shirts for babies and children! Angelina loves the Lollipop Flower t-shirt I made her, and I had to promise that I will make her an Autumn Vine T-shirt too.

I want them all! Amazing striped fabric tape from Kate's Paperie in New York. How cute would a package look taped up with these?

J Crew needs to be stopped. This look is killing me. I love the glasses and that hair!!

A look I love

As it gets closer to September I am thinking about fall and back to school clothes! I really love this casual wearable outfit from Anthropologie- especially the boots. I would love to treat myself to this pair for the fall and winter...if I start saving now...
And I think this might just  be the perfect coat- I love the color, the worn in feel and the feminine take on an army jacket, and the hood is a dream.

A few new pillows...available here for $24.00


I was browsing Bloesem (one of my favorite blogs) this morning and came across this Etsy shop that is just too good not to share.
I love these prints by Inaluxe- they have such a wonderful vintage quality while still feeling so stylish and the colors are giving me fever. I would love to have all of these prints framed together in a salon style above our bed or in the livingroom...Hmmmm....I might tell Victor about these for Christmas!

August 4th, 2001

Victor and I have been married nine years today.  Thank you for nine wonderful years baby!

Annie Hall

I saw Annie Hall for the first time the summer before my sophomore year in high school and it changed the way I dress forever. I wore a pair of my dad's dockers, red Converse All Stars and a white shirt with a tie almost every day for a year after my memorizing every line in the movie.
This fall I am feeling the love for Annie and her wardrobe all over again. I will not rest until I have a perfect pair of wide leg tan trousers and a collection of skinny stripe t-shirts to wear with everything this fall.

I am probably the last person the planet to discover that ModCloth is a really great online store for affordable stylish clothing and housewares, but if you haven't checked it out do it now!
I really am wanting this dress for fall- so cute over thick tights with ankle boots and a jacket- I love it. I did a search for "pockets" ( I have a pocket OBSESSION.  It will make or break a garment for me) and all of the cute dresses and skirts with pockets popped up. Heaven.

I found a little bit of fashion inspiration over the weekend and it was all about leopard print...
