great gift idea :: custom vintage posters


I am smitten with these custom posters from Alexander & Co. I first discovered these through Ruffled and could not be more impressed. Their vintage inspired illustrations can be customized with your names, wedding date, wedding locale…even hair colors! We have many friends getting married this coming year – what a great gift idea!

dresses on the brain


I have dresses on the brain (which is not that uncommon for me). I headed over to to browse their dresses and came to an unfortunate discovery: every single dress that I was drawn to is SOLD OUT. This leads me to three conclusions:

1: I have very mainstream taste, apparently. (Bad.)
2: I’m not quick enough on the draw – totally missed out. (Bad.)
3: All the dresses I am drawn to are slightly longer in length (moderately close to or at knee length). The fact that these longer dresses are all sold out tells me I am not alone in this preference! Retailers, are you LISTENING? (Good!)

my ever growing wish list…


…has just gotten a little longer.

Everyone loves a little black dress, and I am no exception. It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Shabby Apple‘s dresses and in a recent visit to their website I discovered they have some new (well, new to me anyways) LBDs! I love all three of these for their flexibility – they could be dressed up or down with the change of shoes and jewelry. Looks like my (ever expanding) wish list won’t be getting a break any time soon…

warm woolen comfort

The ridiculously low temperatures today in Seattle have me dreaming of warm, woolen cozyness. We will be heading to Chicago in three weeks, where it’s sure to be even chillier, so I’ve been doing a little online browsing for cozy coats and booties. Hmm…it may be prudent to stock up before we leave…

renegade chicago :: wishing to be there, part deux


Last week Whitney posted about our wish to attend the Renegade Craft Fair this weekend, December 5-6 in Chicago. She mentioned a few artists we admire and ended her post with a teaser that I would post a few can’t-miss artists as well. I know you have been waiting with baited breath (haven’t you?), so without further adieu, here are few I would enjoy checking out in person:

First up a perennial favorite of ours: Ork Posters


We love their typographical renditions of city maps, including the Chicago poster which happens to grace the entrance of our home.


We also love their new Brain poster. This, along with the heart poster, would be great for our studio as these are two things that are used to create each of our designs.

Next up: Tugboat Printshop


I love these Deep Blue Sea woodcuts. The illustrations are great and the colors used are beautiful.

And finally: Delicious Design League


We’ve been fans of Delicious Design League since we saw them last year at Renegade. They design and screen print all of their posters and create stellar design and illustration work as well.



Two great Fleet Foxes posters (a favorite of ours!). I love the use of white in the second one.


I had to show this one as it displays two of our favorite things; David Bowie & Flight of the Conchords. Gotta love it.

These are a just few of my picks – there will be so many great artists at Renegade this year so it was hard to pick. It’s definitely a great show – if you’re in Chicago, GO!


ruler notebooks


At the start of every new year I like to stock up on small notebooks for a variety of useful purposes, like keeping track of mileage, appointments, lists, and so on. I stumbled upon the lovely shop of Bailey Doesn’t Bark and fell in love with these Ruler Notebooks – I think these may be my pick for 2010. In addition to being adorable, they’re 100% recycled!

everyone likes a good scarf, right?


As winter approaches and things get a little chillier around here, we all start to look for ways to bundle up with some cozy accessories. Stella humours me and allows me to think she actually likes wearing little sweaters and rain coats. I found the Mulberry Street etsy shop and I won’t be looking any further for stylish knits for my girl – oh and they have some pretty great accessories for humans too.

Our anniversary is this week, and to celebrate it Jonathan and I will be heading out of town for a few days. I’ll leave you all with this fun batch of wedding inspiration – all in black and white (our own wedding color palette).
