New collection

The holiday season is in full swing around here and I haven't had much time for working over the past few weeks. I've had lots of time for christmas tree decorating and gawking and eggnog drinking! You know, the important stuff.

Anyway, I'm always working on something, and this one of two main patterns in a new collection!

If you are interested in the rest of the collection or would like to see more of my work, 
please contact me!

Happy holidays to you!

Can we talk about our fantasy interior designers for a minute?

{If you click on each image it should take you to the source. I found all of these on Pinterest and Google image searches}
Ben Pentreath. I would hire him in a minute (given that I don't have to pay. I don't have the money to hire the designer to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge). I think my ideal designer lineup would be something of a mix between Ben, Jenny (she has the best taste), and Jersey Ice Cream co. And maybe whoever did Carolina Irving's apartment

But for right now, let's just take a look at Mr. Pentreath. He also owns a fantastic looking store (Pentreath-Hall) in London that I need to visit. They write a delightful blog, if you're interested.

I keep trying to decide if I like all the super simple white wall, minimalism I see on Instagram and "like" or if this is more me. I love pattern, there is just no way around it. Maybe a mix of both?

Granted, he has some rather fabulous structures to work within. Older houses are the best! I mean, that fireplace and the built ins! I think its a Georgian townhouse in Bloomsbury. 

And his lovely country home in Dorset.  

The gardens are especially lovely and done by his talented husband, Charlie McCormick. More about there garden, here.

Do you have fantasy decorators, or is it just me?

Vita kin

As you may have noticed, I don't have the time to write or blog very much these days. Most of my free time is spent working or taking a moment for myself. I write a lot of blog posts in my head while on a walk, at the park or reading Peek-a-Who for the 20th time, but then by the time nap-time rolls around I completely forget what I was going to say and sit staring at a blank screen. So, I'm writing this to say, please forgive my short blog posts. That's just where I'm at right now. But I still have things I want to share and so I try. I view my blog as more of a personal view of my life as well as a place to share my designs. Thank you for reading! And I have a moment (nap time!) and something to share. Vita Kin!

Wouldn't this be a great wedding dress? 

Oh, why yes it would. 

Apparently, this was the "It" dress for the fashion set this summer. I saw one of the dresses on Instagram and was immediately smitten. Such fun and so unique. I'm not sure that I could pull it off at the playground, but I still love the look. Perhaps a coat?

Yes! This is amazing. Their only marketing is by Instagram and they work in small factories using traditional techniques and only produce a certain number of garments. Here is a great interview with Vita Kin. She doesn't give a lot of interviews and runs her company exactly as she wants to. Love her. 

Oh, and we haven't even spoken about the patterns! Folk pattern heaven!

Those sleeves!?! And with that, I think I need to go start designing some folk patterns!

Some Things for your Tuesday

Some new work! Polka dots! Always a good idea.

Well, Friday came (and so did Monday) so here are some things for you on a random Tuesday. 

This house tour was lovely and wonderfully lived in. I love home tours and seeing how people live, I'm nosy like that. 

I am in love with this skirt by Ace & Jig. And pretty much everything by Ace & Jig. I have a couple things from them that I love, but I officially want to join the fan girl club!

I watched this movie on Netflix and really enjoyed it. I need to read the book now! Have you read it? Supposedly much better than the movie, of course.

I sent out my first newsletter with some exciting news about my designs for Greetabl

Here is a sneak peek:

Anthro floral love

I was looking around the Anthropologie website this morning and came across this:
Floral digitally printed bedding based on a Swedish tapestry design. YES. And here is a closeup:

My thoughts, 1. Thank you Anthropologie for always having inspiring items in your store. 2. I need to paint something on a large scale. 3. I need to go to Sweden!

Some things

This house tour in T Magazine. A combination of so many things I love. White, pattern, antique textiles, bohemian. Major dream house aspirations.

The movie Iris is now streaming on Netflix! Such a fun and interesting movie. And I didn't know she started Old World Weavers, I love their fabric. And I love Iris!

I love the selection at this online store. They also have a retail store in Salt Lake City, which looks lovely. Also the founders seem pretty cool. I love this especially!

Yesterday was Pumpkin Pie Day! A tradition in my family. I'm so glad pumpkin season is upon us! I think I may have perfected my pie crust recipe, but I need to try this first.

And to end on a tragic note, these stories posted on Humans Of New York from the refugees in Europe is heartbreaking. But worth reading all of them. And donating if you can.
