Handmade Greens

Thursday, November 1st, 2012

So I haven’t worked on my rag rug in quite awhile, but recently I pulled it out and grabbed all the fabric I’m using for it with the intention of picking back up where I left off. At the moment the rug feels kind of frozen in time.

I haven’t ripped any new fabric or made a new stitch yet but I have started developing a little collection of greens. I made 2 “instant-satisfaction” crafts to go with my rag rug—a fabric wreath and a fabric scrap garland. I’m also working on a green pom pom garland.

I have a little collection of matching green things to go with all the new pieces I’m making. Now I just need a room to put it all in!

Black and White Love

Tuesday, May 8th, 2012

I found myself in a little color rut recently…always gravitating towards certain shades. So my challenge this week was to bring beautiful handmade black and white items your way. And I’m so happy with what I found…enjoy :)

Pink and Grey

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

I’m so excited to have been part of the Wedding Wednesday series on the Ruche blog yesterday. Be sure to visit their post highlighting my wedding here!

I had a June wedding at a little mountain stone chapel, and our color palette was pink and grey. I emphasized textural elements in my bouquets, cake and monogram to compliment my dress.

In honor of my wedding post on Ruche, I decided to share some more pink & grey inspiration with you…if only pinterest had existed when I was planning my wedding! :)

color crush: red

Friday, July 15th, 2011

Ever since July 4th I’ve been obsessed with red. It’s on my toenails right now and making a frequent appearance in my wardrobe. Red of course is that classic holiday color we pull out in the wintertime, but it has the perfect mid-summer nautical vibe too. What I really need now is a good classic pair of red heels and the perfect red dress…I’m still on the hunt.

What do you think about red? Oh, and I should mention that red is my kitchen color of choice. So in that sense I’ve adored it for a long time. Now that my kitchen is filled I guess I should work on my closet.

It’s the most beautiful, cool, rainy morning here. I’m in heaven over our weather. Humid 90s…take a rain check!



color crush: summer grey

Friday, June 17th, 2011

grey has been my new favorite neutral for awhile now…and I love that you can charcoal it up in the fall or tone it down for summer. it’s so versatile, you really can’t go wrong.

Julia and I have been working hard on the studio and collecting some great display pieces from salvage & antique shops. I really can’t wait to share it with you. We’ll be around Thursday night (June 23) for the girls night out hosted by our lovely studio neighbor Stylebybecca and we plan to have things ready-ish if you want to get a sneak preview of our space! I’ll give you some more information about that next week.

Also, I’m excited to share that the very talented Christin O’Bryan will be our guest artist for the grand opening. I’ll be sure to show you some of her amazing handmade books and cards soon.

Any fun plans for the weekend?? xx

color crush: keylime

Friday, June 10th, 2011

keylime pie is one of my favorite summer desserts, so I decided to highlight keylime green this week. it’s so lovely and light, both the color and dessert…

Any fun weekend plans? I’m heading to the Greenville global etsy party at Dapper Ink tonight and plan to work on a paper garland for the studio (hopefully I’ll have a fun DIY for that to share soon). More painting in the studio and then hopefully I can start moving some things over there and decorating! xx
