Buckaroo is Turning Two!

Friday, April 23rd, 2010

We went down to Portland last weekend to celebrate our nephew Cole’s second birthday. The party was a cowboy theme and Cole’s parents, Mark-o and Johanna, put a ton of work into the details. From the food (mmmm corn bread!) to decorations it was an adorable event. They really went all out and above are just a few of my favorite details from the day. Happy Birthday to Cole and have a great weekend everyone, see you Monday!

What puppy doesn’t deserve a winning ribbon of their very own?! These stylish stuffed chew toys could be awarded to even the naughtiest of hounds. These charming badges of honor were designed by Stitch Design Co. for Harry Barker Kennel Club and can be pre ordered online here.



To The Letter

Etsy featured the most wonderful store last Friday! To say that owner William Dohman is prolific would be a gross understatement. From graphic prints and photos to heart melting toys, there is something for everyone. My absolute favorite are these wooden signs, they look like they could cheer up any room! He has a ton of pre-done signs but if you don’t find what you’re looking for a custom option is also available.



Well Branded: Brown

This charming identity and set of stamps a for Brown, a confectionary in Bogotá. I love how the combination of the kraft paper and rich stamped artwork make these delightful packages feel both rustic and classy without trying too hard. The whole effect is simply delicious!

Bird Bud Vases

Monday, April 19th, 2010

Happy Monday to everyone! We had a beautiful spring weekend here in the Northwest and I had so much fun working in the yard and spotting all the plants beginning to bloom. Nothing says spring like flowers and the sound of birds chirping, so these miniature bird vases from Graham & Green seem utterly perfect right now! They come in two styles and I have a strong urge to buy a whole flock!
