Purl Soho + Egg Press = Amazing

I love Purl Soho, we all know that. And I have been a huge fan of Portland based letterpress company Egg Press since my days as a shop girl in Chicago. So when I saw today that they were collaborating on a collection together- what could be better? This sweet set of needle point patterns illustrated by Egg Press could not be cuter and the supplies and instructions from Purl Soho are top notch. It is inspiring me to cozy up with a cup of tea and do some hand work...

Vroom Vroom Hooray!

It has been so hard keeping this secret! A few months ago I found out I was one of four grand prize winners in a Kate Spade contest on Pinterest to win a custom Vespa! Amazing right? I am so excited about my new ride and cannot wait to take her out on the town. How cute will it be to run errands on my Vespa? Someday when I open up my own little shop I keep thinking how nice it will be to have her parked outside. And she has a name too... Kate of course!
