check out the ever changing display at months end, what will it be next month??? stay tuned!
August!?! What? Well, I know some people feel like summer is over but I feel like there are still 2 pretty solid months left! So, get out there and enjoy the beautiful weather, gardening, farmers market, and all my favorite summer things! Color of the month is a lovely warm salmony coral tone. It’s like sitting in the sun. Enjoy!
It’s almost impossible to think that it’s already July! The last couple week of June just flew by with busyness, cottage time, and work. I’m extra excited this year about the 4th of July, although I don’t think I’ll be at the cottage which hasn’t happened too many times in my life. However, one of my very best friends will be in town from Seattle and I can’t wait to hang out with her! Yay! So, appropriately the colors of the month for this July happens to be red, white, and blue!
I always love a cheery yellow setting! I’ve been spending a lot of time outside lately in the garden, dinner on the patio, and enjoying the nicer weather and sunshine so this yellow feels right at home.
April was a busy month with the Apartment Therapy photo shoot/ home tour, finishing and sending off product to Whole Foods stores in NY. I partnered up with Whole Foods and Etsy Wholesale for that one, I’ve been sew busy (pun intended) I think I forgot to share that here. Also, getting ready and traveling to and from The Country Living Magazine Fair in TN (more on that later), birthdays (including mine), my parents anniversary, the start of vintage buying season, and my regular artgoodies work load. I’ve been crazy busy but I’ve been having a great time. I’m beginning to wonder what kind of energy I’m operating on. My mom has been telling me for quite some time I’m like the Energizer bunny. I guess when you’re happy doing what you love you have extra power to keep going. Also, the fact that you are entirely responsible for it ALL adds a little push. Truth be told after this last month and travel I went to bed at 7:15 last night. But, I got up at 4 am to go to an antique show over by Detroit with my pal Abby of Binks and the Bad Housewife. It’s nice when you can find friends who drank the go go juice from the same magical fountain of go getters. Flea marketing and antique shopping with someone who is also an early bird and can keep the pace is helpful. You get in and out like a vintage ninja before the crowd has had their coffee. For most of my vintage finds as of late follow me on instagram here, get a sneak peek before items head to the shop! Now about that color of the month! Enjoy!
April showers bring May flowers! Spring! My favorite time of year as plants start to emerge, rummage sales fire up, the cottage opens back up, and the weather starts to warm! Plus April means a flurry of birthdays and my parents anniversary so there are extra things to celebrate!
- Orange you glad it’s almost Spring! I know I am! Daylight savings is just around the corner but it’s hard to believe as the snow and cold linger on. Give me sunshine, fresh air, plants, gardening, the farmers market, and rummage sales! It’s pretty obvious that I need color in my life and the gray days, white snow, and stick trees aren’t cutting it. With that I give you March’s color of the month. Mostly orange with a little help from some cheery yellow and green friends.
February?! Wow, ok, so 2015 is already off to a quick start. I’ve been trying to pace myself with work which is really hard for me to do. However, the lack of sunshine helps when it comes to lounging about working on new products (more coming soon) and napping. I think I’m caught up on my sleep from the busy holiday, finally. Speaking of sunshine, yellow seemed like the most appropriate color during this gray blah thing we call winter. Here it is, color of the month February 2015!
And…breaks over! I always find it a little disorienting to get back to work after the hustle bustle of the season and then a holiday break. Getting back to the studio and work schedule after being away takes a little easing into.
OOOPS! Sorry to keep you waiting for the color of the month on the blog! I’ve been on jury duty,plowing through mounds of spreadsheets, photo edits, and company launches, plus working on a little website revamp of my own (coming up) all while trying to prep for the holiday and make the goods. Here ya go, color of the month November 2014-Jade. It’s not often that I stumble upon jadeite in my vintage treasure hunting and when I find it it’s usually not all that budget friendly. But I stumbled upon a few pieces that didn’t break the bank.
