Color of the Month April 2015!

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!

Color of the Month!

  • 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.

Fave vintage items: striped mugs, tea towel, juice glasses, orange bowl, Gurley candles

Color of the Month February 2015!

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!

Color of the Month January 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.

Color of the Month! Jade.

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.
