Alt Love No.2

March 3rd, 2010

Part two of my Alt Love series: Here I’m highlighting some of the amazing people and their blogs that I had the pleasure of meeting at the Altitude Design Summit. It’s a long list so I’ve decided to highlight some each week and make it a short run feature here on t&t. Hope you enjoy and perhaps find a few new sites to add to your blogroll!

The City Sage

In light of yesterday’s post it seems only fitting that I would formaly introduce you all to two more of my favorite bloggers and Anne of The City Sage happens to be one of them.

Anne and Chelsea (of {frolic}) graciously rescued me from my lonesome self at the opening party and the three of us ended up spending most of the weekend together. Those two ladies are fabulous and Anne is just as sweet as her lovely blog! Filled to the brim with loads of inspiration both for your home and fashion you’ll never run out of loveliness on City Sage. Anne happens to be a chef during the day and shares some of her own recipes with us lucky readers as well.

I’m constantly impressed with Anne’s keen eye for design and color, case in point, and I love how every last detail on her site hangs together seamlessly. She’s also got mad skills when it comes to writing. She’s great at injecting her personal voice and humor into everything all while being completely concise.

Oh So Beautiful Paper

Another blog that stole my heart last year and who’s author I was so insanely excited to meet was Nole of Oh So Beautiful Paper. I was completely star struck when I got to meet her for the first time and I hope I was able to squelch my giddy enthusiasm enough not to scare her away.

When I was planning my own wedding, I found it difficult to find resources that featured a great selection of wedding invitations and other printables. There is a lot to sift through on the web and Nole graciously and meticulously filters it all for us featuring only the best of the best. From invitations to greeting cards to calendars, Nole highlights it all. I can’t remember ever seeing a single thing she’s featured that I haven’t loved and it’s her consistent finds that make me go back everyday.

I was shocked to learn that Nole actually works for the goverment in Washington DC. I had assumed that she was a graphic designer that specialized in wedding and invitation design. Turns out that Oh So Beautiful Paper is her creative outlet away from the office. She too has an exquisite eye and I know I’ll always be greeted with a bit of wonderfulness everyday.

Thanks to both these ladies for such a fun weekend and the never ending inspiration! Be sure to check out both The City Sage and Oh So Beautiful Paper if you aren’t already adoring fans like myself.
