We’ve had a gloomy rainy day—the best sort of day for sketching new ideas and soaking up inspiration. This afternoon I savored a cup of hot tea and pored over Pattern by Orla Kiely. Oh yeah, and I painted my nails. I’m in love with white nail polish. It reminds me of coating my nails with [...]

I swear I’m not making this up! Have you ever heard of a kiwiberry? I hadn’t until my last trip to the grocery store. Daniel was reluctant to buy a small handful of strange berries for $5, but I can be very persistent! Kiwiberries are the size of large grapes, and inside each small green [...]
I’ve been on a scarf collecting rampage for the past year or so. I love wearing them, but I only knew two ways to tie them. Thankfully I discovered this website that demonstrates 37 ways to tie a scarf! In an effort to put my trusty camera remote to good use I cataloged my new [...]
This morning I came across the photography of Irina Werning, and I had to share this amazing project with you. Irina had her subjects reenact old photographs of themselves, and she precisely recreated the images. Check out the complete project right here.

If you’re a flower hater don’t be mad, but I want to show you a few more of my spring blooms. I promise this will be my last flower post for a while (I can probably hold off for at least a few days). Just look how pretty my window boxes are! Unfortunately I didn’t [...]
I’m digging Ruche’s latest look book. It’s full of two things that I love—persimmons and bunting banners. No wait, three things that I love—persimmons, bunting banners, and bunnies!
You’ve probably been losing sleep over whether or not my daffodils and crocuses made it out of the ground. Well don’t fret—they did!
Here’s a peek at what I’ve been filling my sketchbook with lately. I need to watch Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory again because I can’t get the song Pure Imagination out of my head. I think I watch that movie almost monthly. Is that weird? Next week I’ll show you what all the Ns and [...]
