New items in the shop!

I had a great day in the studio- feeling inspired and happy to be working and getting things done.
I have some new hoodies in the shop! I am loving this warm heather gray color, it is so soft and goes with everything.  I updated some of my most popular styles with new fabrics on the warm heather gray, and the Autumn Berries hoodie is a new design all together.

Oh, and a cute little pillow made from vintage wool plaid that is giving me fever. I might just keep it.

Emily Ryan

I am lusting after this dress by Portland's own (and the very cute and stylish) Emily Ryan...POCKETS!!!

Words to live by...

Finding inspiration for doing what needs to be done to be a mother, a wife, a teacher, and an artist and kick some serious butt this holiday season both on Etsy and all of my shows...
Prints by Hue Concept

Anna Joyce Design + Studio Olivine!

One of my fantasy collaborations is coming true! I am working with the fun and adorable Julie from Studio Olivine and we are cooking up something great for the holidays.  I am so excited to be working with paper, and letterpress! I will keep you posted...


My baby is almost two! Where does the time go?

New Hoodies!

Just added a few new hoodies to my shop!

Fabulous no?

Kelly Wearstler is fabulous. That is so the kind of outfit I wear in my studio when I am working too...ha!

Happy fall to me!

I broke down and bought the Frye Oxfords that I have been lusting over- and Zappos sent them to me overnight, so I have been wearing them all day. I adore them. They are comfortable, the perfect caramel color, and they smell good- like new leather. They have updated everything in my closet  in one fell swoop.
I am very happy.

One AMAZING year

Today is the one year anniversary of taking the plunge, jumping in with both feet and deciding to make my art full time.  It has been one of the most rewarding, exciting, challenging, and wonderful years of my life. Thank you to all of the people who have supported me personally, supported my business and I can't wait to see what the next year brings!
To Victor, Angelina, Iris, my mother, my Spice and our nanny Megan- I could NOT have done this without all of you!
Thank you.

Lauren Moffatt

I am loving these new fall looks and website from Lauren Moffatt... It feels very Stevie Nicks meets Annie Hall heading off to prep school. Perfect.

More shoes...

I know I am posting about shoes almost everyday right now (can you tell I am obsessed?) but these are so cute! I have always wanted a pair of hand painted clogs...these are by far the cutest version I have ever seen.

new classes added at Modern Domestic

I have a few more sessions of my Intro to Machine Applique class added to line-up at Modern Domestic.
Saturday September 18th, 2:30pm and Thursday September 30th, 6pm
I hope to see you there!


I am sure news that a fantastic looking shelter magazine is coming out will be all over the blogs, but I am so excited about it myself that I have share it too! Anthology is a quarterly design and life style magazine "that takes a narrative approach to its coverage of home d├ęcor, travel, design, entertaining, and culture."
Here are a few sneak peaks that I pulled off of Design*Sponge- it looks amazing and I have already ordered my first issue.

Oh, Frye.

I LOVE the Frye boots that my mom got me for Christmas last year (best gift from a mom ever right?) and now I am crazy in love with these Oxfords...I think they would wear really well and look great for years.  I am starting to save right now...

Prairie Underground Score!

I always look for deals on my favorite from Seattle bases Prairie Underground on Ebay- and I was SO excited to win the Sargent Tunic this week for a steal. I coveted the tunic when it first came out in 2008 and stopped my search when I realized it was WAY out of my budget.
But my tunic arrived yesterday ( I have the charcoal colorway with silver stripes) it fits perfectly and I LOVE it. It has POCKETS!!

Alexa Chung for Madewell

British It Girl Alexa Chung has debuted her collection for Madewell...I am not so sure that high waisted velvet shorts fit into my lifestyle but the clothes are pretty cute- I am coveting the Iris blouse ( I am biased because it is called the Iris after all...) I could see myself wearing that to every holiday party with some great velvet pants or a pencil skirt.
And Alexa has some really great hair.

Capturing Summer

For the first time in as long as I can remember I am not ready for fall.
I found this picture of the girls and it seemed to capture the essence of our wonderful summer...

Autumn Love

Here are some of my favorite new looks from Toast UK .
I want all of them...
I would also love to be curled up in bed with some tea and toast- I have cold that does not want to go away.
