Big Blue

We spent the weekend cleaning up our C&P Pilot Letterpress. After scanning the aisles of paint, we decided to go with bright blue, can't you tell? :) I just wanted to share the before & after pictures with you, just to show you how far a little tender-love-care can go!

I found these pieces by Rosanna to be quite nice. A little bit feminine, with a little bit of flair. Nice color palettes as well. These dishes are each created by hand, "Handcrafted in a Mexican village, each piece is individually mouth blown, hand etched and sandblasted with distinctively Rosanna patterns … modern, yet comfortingly familiar."

Astilbe Designs

I love stud earrings, and I thought these from Astilbe Designs were just too cute.

Naiad Soap Arts

I'm not much of a product girl...and what I mean by product is, I use the bare essentials: Shampoo, Conditioner, Bar Soap, and that's it! I usually buy the cheapest thing at the store which lasts about 2-3 months. However, when I stumbled across the soap of Naiad, I had to take a second look. Don't these look yummy!

Tauva Auerbach

Tauba Auerbach's creations are little typographic eye candy for your day...

Save Polaroid

I was browsing through my favorite blogs this morning when I saw a post on {frolic!} about "Saving the Polaroid!" If you haven't heard yet, before we know it, polaroid instant cameras/film will cease to exist :( However, there have been a few noteworthy crusades to protest this tragedy. So jump on over to Save Polaroid and join the fight!

Wedding Wednesday: Lucky Coins

I have mentioned several times that 2008 is going to be the year of weddings. I take it as a blessing that my co-worker (and previous classmate from design school) is getting married a month after me. We spend a few minutes (err..hours) a day chatting over the latest wedding drama, and recently she completed her save the dates. Yes, gocco-ed save the dates - but with an interesting twist :) She had a personalized coin created to attach to her announcement. A coin! How clever is that?! I should mention she is getting married at an old North Carolina fort on the coast, how clever is that! :)

Flickr Group: Handbound Books

Flickr Tuesday is one on my favorite blogging themes. I love any excuse to sift through flickr and its bounty of photos... and today I am highlighting a flickr group called "Handbound Books."

New Gocco Prints

I found this great 1940's book about mammals in the thrift store the other day, so I decided to rip it apart and gocco on it!

Jenny Hofer Aprons

Jenny Hofer Designs has a selection of cute aprons and other accessories. I have a rather drab kitchen, so anything that helps add little life to the room, is a plus in my book.

Tea Towels

I found these clever tea towels from 5pm studio this morning on etsy. I am a sucker for embroidery and loved how playful these towels were. Oh, and check out this great mug...

Barbra Ziemer - Photography

Oh I am such a sucker for vintage camera photography...the work of Barbra Ziemer is just that. Below are three of her pieces that almost look like a watercolor painting rather than photography. She says they are "a representation of tranquility," lovely right? :)

Emerald Green & Blue

I am totally loving this color combo I found on apartment therapy. Surprisingly soothing yet at the same has a little punch.

Wedding Wednesday

So I am at the point in my wedding planning that I need to start looking for shoes in order to get the hem right on my dress. I am leaning more towards wearing a flat shoe considering we are getting married on a stage positioned on the side of a small grassy hill.

Wooded Bliss

Here are a few wood products that I am currently loving. Who can't help but have a thing for a little faux bois?!

Walnut Wallpaper

If only we could paint or even wallpaper in our little apartment! I love the prints from Walnut Wallpaper and am jealous of those of you out there who can actually brighten up your rooms with a splash of patterns. Oh well!

Flickr Group: Silouette-Paper Cut

Found some fun compositions on the flickr group: silouette-paper cut that I thought I would share. Oh, for the love of paper :)
