Girly Baby Shower

So exciting to plan a girly baby shower for a friend of mine. So so many ideas so little time. I am trying to make crochet flowers and a garland. We are breaking out embroidered linens, fancy china and doilies. You can see my inspiration pinterest board here.

Ikat at the Textile Museum

Sorry no post on Friday. I was drooling over some really amazing ikat coats at the Textile Museum in DC. There is just so much to see in DC my friends and I also went to the National Gallery. I used to go all the time when I was young. I was very sentimental about all my favorite art from my childhood trips. The DC trip was a great way to wrap up my Workation. I took the week off from my day job and I made a very very long wish list of things to get done for my art business. I think I accomplished about a third of what I wanted but it was still nice to get a taste of what is like working from home.

Pretty Pastels

Isn't it sad these pretty pastels have spent their long life tucked away in a box where no one can see them. Well now I have the chance to share them with you.

Taking the week off from my day job to work on my own business. I have such a long to do list. Working on a game plan his morning. I just hope I don't get too distracted by the internet and my furry baby. (the link to this print on pinterest is bad if you know the artist let me know I would love to post the correct link if this is still for sale on Etsy)

Orinui Dress!!

I really really need this orinui patterned indigo tyedye dress from Calypso. Only problem is it is on the non refundable sale online sale rack. Should I risk it? I think so.

Fall = Apples

Apple picking is my new fall ritual. It seems like such a fun adventure to get out of town on a cool fall morning and pick apples right off the tree.

Richmond Folk Festival

Wanted to share this poster by Wes Freed for this weekend's Folk Festival. I just saw them in person today at work and they look very nice you can buy them in person at the festival or online here. If you are in town you have no excuse. So much great music and perfect weather forecast this weekend!

Moo Sticker Books

Valentina Ramos
Ines Maldonado
Wow it looks like dreams really do come true. For a while now I have been very jealous of the Brits and their snazzy Moo sticker books. Now you can order them in the US online store. I can't wait to make some to go with my greeting cards they would be perfect to jazz up the plain envelopes.

I had the chance to visit O'Suzannah last weekend in Charlottesville VA. It was so wonderful. My friend Becky and I took two trips around the store and another round together before we even got down to business. So many things to drool over. I see a lot of the artists' work online every day but how amazing to have the opportunity to pick it up and look at things in person. They even had the new 2011 Nikki McClure calendar already and I was able to flip through all the pages. If you are in the area you must check out the store yourself!
