Yellow Spring!

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011

After a few beautiful days here is Seattle I am completely and utterly ready for Spring! I even managed to mow the yard this weekend which is always a great feeling. I’m preparing for the dreary Northwest rain to return soon but thankfully I have this lovely image to remind me of sunnier days.

This cheery yellow bike and basket were photographed by Allyson Magda for an East Coast inspired wedding shoot featured on Style Me Pretty. There are tons of lovely images in this gallery so do check it out!



Style Me Pretty Magazine!

Wednesday, January 5th, 2011



The blogosphere was a buzz yesterday with the announcment of the new Style Me Pretty Magazine! I am a huge fan of Abby, she is after all why I started this li’l blog, but that’s another story. I am so unbelievably thrilled and excited for her and the SMP team! This seems like a natural progression and I can only wait to see what else is in store!

The premier issue is nothing short of perfection and a plethora of beauty! Page after page is drenched with inspiration from styling to gorgeous diy details. If you follow along daily, you’ll probably recognize some of your favorite weddings as the first issue features the best of 2010.

Hope on over to see the full magazine and congratulate the Style Me Pretty crew on they’re new adventure!

Today over on Style Me pretty Abby is sharing my latest DIY project on how to make inexpensive table centerpieces. With the help of a little paint and some flowers these miss-matched thrift store finds make for a bold and cheap focal point for a wedding or special event. Best part, once the wedding is over, you have loads of beautiful vases to give away as gifts and decorate your new home!



New in the Shop!

Wednesday, November 18th, 2009

Hi everyone! Apologies if you tried to visit yesterday, apparently our server was down for the better part of the day. Looks like things are back up and running today – fingers crossed!

Anyhoo, exciting news! I’ve recently added two downloadable PDF templates to my Etsy shop: Twig & Thistle Store. First, by popular demand, I now have the Coat Check Tags available. Featured on Style Me Pretty, theses tags add the perfect detail to a wedding and a great way to add a bit of whimsey in the most unexpected place. Simply type in your names and wedding date, print and cut!

Second, the Sparkler cards are currently featured on Martha Stewart Weddings Online and both have also been featured on Style Me Pretty. Not just for weddings! Brighten up any event with these customizable Sparkler Cards. Great for New Years or random holiday cheer!

I offer both templates in 6 color ways and they are customizable so you can type in your own information then print and cut. The best part is that once you’ve downloaded the template it’s yours to keep and use again and again! I hope you’ll stop by and check it out. xoxo, Kathleen
