The Handsome!

Friday, April 29th, 2011

One of my favorite series online is The Handsom on Oh, Hello Friend and I was beyond excited when Danni asked my hubs Joseph to participate! The Handsome is where Danni interviews husbands of bloggers for a peak behind the curtain and into their day-to-day lives. Joseph was so honored and had a blast with the interview!

If you have a moment and would like to learn a little about my own little handsome than head on over to read his interview. Big thanks to Danni and of course to my husband for making Twig & Thistle possible!



New In The Shop!

Thursday, April 28th, 2011

I’m excited to announce two new items in my wee shop; mini pencils in both White and Gold! Both of which are perfect for just about any occasion that require a writing instrument. Having a baby or bridal shower? They’re great for games, quizzes and even a guestbook!



I spotted this beautiful first birthday invitation and certificate on Pinterest yesterday in Inspired Bride’s collection. This suite was created by the husband and wife team of Duet letterpress for their adorable daughter, Emily. What a lucky girl!

The invitation is letterpressed on the smaller pink card and details from the 1st year are included in the certificate. Both were bundled up with baker’s twine along with a picture of the birthday girl in a small glassine envelope.

I think the certificate is such a sweet way of celebrating all those simple moments and big milestones with your friends and family. See more pictures and find out the details about the printing here.



Against the Grain: Bolefloor

My husband sent me a link to this beautiful new flooring called Bolefloor. Bole, which means the trunk of the tree, is a new tongue-and-groove system with curved boards that come from the tree’s natural growth.

I wish we had the means to re-floor our entire house with these! There is something so absolutely stunning in their irregular curves and details. Definitely putting this idea in the inspiration folder for our future dream home!

With Easter almost here, Mother’s Day is soon to follow! I’ve updated my original Mother’s Day Door Hanger for 2011 and hopefully it’ll come in handy for a few of you.

Whether it’s a gift for yourself or someone you know, I’m sure everyone can appreciate a little down time this Mother’s Day. The best part, it’s a gift that keeps on giving; hang whenever a quite moment is needed and cherish those precious times! All you need to do is download, print, cut and hang! Happy early Mother’s Day!
