custom calligraphy.

the idea of having handwritten calligraphy on every letter i ever put in the mail seems so romantic and luxurious. these custom address stamps make it easy to make every envelope special... love!


the golden coast.

photographs from my recent getaway to beautiful san clemente, california. coming to my etsy shop soon!


my latest obsession . . . chunky knits

the bigger the better... they're comfy, oversized, and some are downright unwearable. but i can't help but love them.

what i'm watching . . . last leaf by ok go

ever since their ridiculously awesome treadmill choreography music video, i've been waiting to see what the band ok go would come up with next.

well, now the guys have a new video, but it's not exactly what i expected. instead, it's 2 minutes of amazing stop-motion animation created using images burned onto pieces of toast, set to a lullaby-like acoustic song called "last leaf".

sounds pretty weird, i know... but it's actually completely mesmerizing. give it a watch and tell me what you think!


2011 photo calendars in the shop!

i am so pleased to announce that 2011 photo calendars are now available in my etsy shop!

there are two different calendars available...

paris je t'aime . . . 13 beautiful images (12 months + cover) from my travels to the city of light. the perfect gift for anyone who loves paris as much as i do!

pastel memories . . . 13 hand-picked images in dreamy pastel shades. from delicate pink blossoms to tranquil aqua waters, each photo in this calendar will transport you to another place.

i chose some of my absolute favorite images for the calendars... i hope you like them as much as i do!


material recovery

material recovery is my new favorite etsy shop by far. the vintage suzani and ikat fabrics they use are absolutely to die for. the only problem is deciding which one of these lovelies i want on my couch!
