A Lightening


I am finally lightening the color palette in my shop a bit for Spring. I love dark browns and blacks, so this is hard for me! The sky is too blue to not break out a few pastels. Here are some items currently in shop and some soon to come.

Song for Today



I can't get enough of Gillian Welch and David Rawlings. When he took the reins for their new album as the Dave Rawling Machine, I was prepared for some major swooning. Here is a great song "Ruby" from the album. And thanks alot NPR for the sepia tone...heaven knows that bluegrass music should only be seen in shades of brown...

Another Dose of Inspiration



















I am trying to get some photo inspiration back these days. Here is a look at the work of Loretta Lux, a modern artist who mixes photography, painting, and digital manipulation to make these haunting and surreal images of children. I love how sparse and awkward they are. Awesome styling as well!

I LOVE how accessible, practical and homey the Colorado Yurk Co. makes these tents and tipis appear. oh how i want to live in the woods in a tipi with a wood stove and my dogs! am i too young for a summer home?
Also, check out this more affordable, small tipi by ReForm School

New Noisy Friend



I have woken up multiple times in the past week...usually right around 8 am...to the sound of my new woodpecker friend banging on the roof right above my bed. I have also spotted several downey woodpeckers at my feeder and in the trees at my house in the past few days. It is a charming way to start the day!
