Garden Inspired

Thursday, June 24th, 2010

I adore these delightfully simple and ethereal images of an early garden. Sárah Goldschadt managed to make the simplest new beginnings into a beautifully optimistic and inspiring scene.

See more of Sárah’s photos on Flikr and be sure to stop by her fantastic blog – it’s a new personal favorite!



Sponsor Thanks + Interview

Friday, May 28th, 2010

I’m signing off early this week for the long holiday weekend but before I do I wanted to thank all our sponsors and welcome our newest one, Bonbon Charms. Bonbon Charms specializes in custom handcrafted jewelry by Erica Clements of Eugene, Oregon. Her collection includes charms for necklaces, bracelets and custom pieces. Be sure sure to check out her shop for all the lovely goodies!

Also, last week I had the pleasure of being interviewed on the Fossil Life and Style Blog. Who knew Fossil had a blog?! I’d missed it somehow and was incredibly delighted and honored that they wanted to include me in their 3 Questions series.

I had a blast answering their questions and you can read my responses here. If you’ve ever wondered how Twig & Thistle got started you can find out how it all began here. I hope you’ll stop on over and see what other creative stuff they have posted. This tutorial, on how to cover pencils in paper for example, is brilliant! Have a great long weekend everyone and I’ll see you back here Tuesday!
