Wishing you a lovely weekend! No big plans here for the holiday... Just a little sewing, relaxing and a visit to the Long Beach Flea Market's special show.

Cookies and sweets!

Wishing you a lovely evening.  I had a busy day today gathering some wonderful fabrics for pillows and goodies soon to be online!  I always wondered how wonderful these pedestals might look with little cookies in them- now we know.  Perfect for the next party!

I love love vintage doors.  I cannot wait until someday when I can build my own home and include some vintage architectural elements... but for now I will just dream about it.

Matteo Bedding Retail Showroom - LA

Last week I was lucky enough to go to LA with my WONDERFUL customer/friend Liza who took me to the Matteo Retail showroom!  I was in love- The exterior was fantastic - it is covered in reused wood pallets that were placed across the face of the building.  I loved the look and feel of the space.  They used the pallets inside to line all of the walls and to make up the counter.  What a creative and amazing idea to reuse these textured pieces. 

They are having a big sale this weekend.  If you are in the area you should stop by and see their bedding is amazing and great quality.

My Garden - It's Complicated {update}

I am so excited for the little fruits and veggies to grow up!!  We have been able to munch on a few strawberries here and there as well as broccoli a little while back.  I am anxious for the raspberries and the blue berries as it seems we will have quite a few!  Last pic is my big Otto dog - he loves to help me in the garden (really he just lays in the sun)... Have a good day!

Utility still life..

How can someone make a simple stool look so cool??  Even the naked bulb above is great!  I think that the vintage stool with its time worn patina makes such a fun statement.
