love forever: Where to Find Me Next Week

I'm totally excited but once again, don't have a lot of time to post on this little blog. But… I will be a guest curator on the wonderful blog CRESCENDoh next week (Oct. 25th- 31st), so you can check out some of my favorite links and my Art Saves story (a little tale of how art has saved my life) over there.

Fashion Blog Where fashion and the Conscious Consumer collide. - Part 2

This is one of the sweetest “tellings” of the birth of Jesus that I’ve ever watched by the St. Paul’s Church in New Zealand. Chicago design guide. Poppytalk. PAPER. MadeByGirl. Sale sites. Just a Year Ago... **update** We moved from this house to a new one (another fixer upper in September of 2012) so here's the story of our last home...

Just a Year Ago...

(No after pics of the new house yet ;) ;) ... Just a year ago we moved into our new {70s} home. We've made so many changes to it that I thought a before& after post of the whole house would be fun. I'll put links throughout the post to the specific rooms in the house so if you've got any questions, check those post for answers, sources, how to's, etc. Our house had been vacant and on the market for about 4 years before we came along & bought it. We painted the cedar a dark gray and added a trellis with climbing jasmine and as many shrubs as we could afford. The entrance (below) was in need of some loving: ...And here's what it looks like now (errr on Halloween ;): {Bright orange front door, new lantern, rug, paint, etc.}

Our foyer was really bad. {Before} The living room is one of my favorite parts of our house. Here's a view of the side wall before: {yum! Xoxo,

a selection of graphic projects

But what I miss is a big nice office. We always want we don't have... I was luck to visit Ty Mattson studio last year, and it was really inspiring... and he brings it to another level... It present it well, so just have to quote him : Mattson Creative is a small design firm, by design. So I set out to create the type of office that I wanted to work in, and I invited my friends and colleagues to join me. All summer we’ve been working on the building– a 125 year-old former lima bean factory – reimagining and redesigning the interior into a one-of-a-kind creative workspace – and we’re almost finished.

Artichoke Mixed Book Page Pendant Light : Grassrootsmodern

A recent graduate from architecture school, Allison decided that she would "start a design firm making cool stuff". The result is a whole collection of amazing lighting like the Artichoke Mixed Book Page Pendant Light shown above. All of her lamps use commonplace materials like book pages, plastic bags, straws etc but with amazing results.

I say we all reward Allison for being awesome and buy something from her store. It's all incredibly affordable and beautiful. Home - Creature Comforts - daily inspiration, style, diy projects + freebies. Swissmiss. Design Milk: Modern Design.
