Curtain Trick!

Monday, September 19th, 2011

A few weeks ago I was struggling to keep my curtains in place. Every time I opened a window the rings would slide or my sheers would shift. I ended up using mighty magnets to keep the rings in place and they’ve worked out brilliantly! Best part, they’re so little that you can place them towards the wall and you’ll never even know they’re there. It’s such a simple and easy fix so I thought I’d pass the tip along. Here’s to drapes that always stay in place!



Things We Love

One of my favorite experiences from Alt 2011 was the Kate Spade after party. After camping out for over an hour (yes, sadly, I was one of those people) I was one of 50 that received a Kate Spade goodie bag. While the goodie bag was a little disappointing for the hype, it did include a little brand book titled “Thinks We Love” which made it totally worth the wait!

Meant to be a peak into the Kate Spade world and what inspires the creative team behind the brand, this piece is trully a designers dream! My little book of awsome now lives prominetly on my desk, with it’s gold foils, striking photographs and a series of tip-ons, it’s such a sweet gem. It even boasts a real cookie fortune and a post-applied strip of tape, but my favorite detail has to be the spread of peonies and gold confetti! Love!

I’ve been meaning to photograph the book and share it with all of you but luckily I spotted this image on Pinterest and I discovered these lovely shots have already been taken. Through the link, I found this fantastic interview on Felt & Wire about the creative and printing process surrounding the book. Be sure to click on over to see more spreads and get a dose of  inspiration for yourself!

Apologies for the grainy photo, I spotted this on my way into work today and snapped it with my iPhone. This sweet little note completely brightened my morning! Hugs to the anonymous author for the joy it brought me. xoxo
