Nail & String Letters

Have you seen this DIY over at JK JK? Jen {my amazing sister in law} was inspired by the string letters over at her local Anthropologie. Such a great way to spice up your kitchen! Go here to get the step by step & how too(s).

I've always loved nail & string art. I have this flower string art in my hallway that I bought at one of my favorite local antique stores Retro Rose quite a few years ago.

here's a close up- so much string!

Pom Poms Galore

Have you been wondering where I've been? Well I've been up to my _______ in POM POMS! I decided I needed something new to make for my shop & some up coming shows. So I decided to make pom pom wreaths. As tedious as making pom pom after pom pom is- the end result is so pretty & fluffy you just want to
feel it up cuddle with it.

oh & I guess I've been busy with this little guy

I also made this- inspired by this & It only took about 10 minutes

my friend tia & I attempted to go here opening day- the line to get in was about a mile long! needless to say we didn't get in...

Etsy Love/ Elly MacKay

These photo's by Elly MacKay are amazing! Perfect for any room. She makes her images by painting them & then cutting the painting into layers. Then she layers the pieces & sets them up in a miniature theater after which she fiddles with the lights & filters & then photographs them! Say what! That just sounds like so much work! Seriously- that work has payed off. How beautiful are these pictures. 


Design Sponge Book Tour @ Anthropologie

I went to a craft/ book signing party with some girlfriends & baby Reyn last night for Grace of Design Sponge. She's the tiniest/ nicest gal. Seriously she's like miniature! I love that she's living her dreams- with her blog & her book. Her really pretty book.

annie- me & our babes- 
Reyn really liked Grace's urber shiny hair.

* there were ton of babes & 4 babies there & boy were they so well natured. (not so much the babes)
** thanks susan for the photo's



I love this time of year. I get a little sad knowing the cold/snow is coming soon but the changing colors of the fall leaves makes up for it. I'm also super excited about the holidays. Halloween is one of my favorites. Since my tweenager hasn't wanted to trick or treat with me for a couple of years this year was a little more fun with an excited 2 & 3 1/2 year old to trick or treat with. Here are a few of our Halloween pics this year- courtesy of my instagram stream- 

mostly painted pumpkins using some black spray paint & tape & some 
using puffy paint found around our house. (yes I had puffy paint!)
