I fell in love with this room by Live Creating Yourself while looking at inspiration for our office remodel. Everything is so perfect right down to the screensaver. Download it for free here!




Geronimo!

June 22nd, 2011 | 9 Comments »

Spotted the work of the Geronimo Balloon-Troopers at the Portland Summer School event over the weekend and had to share these images from their photo gallery. I love the colors and combination of shimmering gold with the pale pink and yellows. Pretty, pretty!




Hi lovlies and happy Monday! I had the pleasure of attending Summer School in Portland this weekend where I took a flower arranging class from Chelsea of {Frolic}. This was my first ever floral class and I was excited to learn how she creates her relaxed fresh flower arrangements.

I can assure you that making something look so simple and effortless is really quite the oposite. I picked up some great tips and basics for floral arranging but I no doubt need more practice. Above are some pics of the event and my final bouquet. I can’t wait to experiment and develop some skills and hopefully share as I go.

Chelsea was sweet as always and I got to see other friends as well as meet new ones. I even shared a table with Lillian of Unstitched, Grace of Design*Sponge and Katy from Katy Elliot. Such a talented and fun group and a great way to spend the weekend!




Well Groomed Blog!

One of my all time favorites, Shauna Young, recently announced that her husband launched Well-Groomed; a style blog for grooms. Darren has put together a fantastic resource for those style-conscious, detail-oriented gents that could use a hand in preparing for their big day.

I’m excited to see what’s in store for Well-Groomed and so far it’s a terrific source for wedding trends all from the male perspective. Well done Darren and thanks for sharing!




Wood & Faulk

I’m obsessed with the Northwesterner series of canvas bags from Wood & Falk. The leather and waxed canvas make for a timeless, practical and versatile all use bag.

I’m a huge fan of Matt’s work outside of bags as well. I first came across his DIY on Design*Sponge and have been perusing his blog ever since. Matt’s projects are brilliant and photographed beautifully by Lisa Warninger. When you have a moment, be sure to check out his shop and blog.
