best place on earth

This weekend Eric and I are headed to northern Michigan to spend the Memorial Day weekend with my family at our cottage on Lake Huron. It is one of my favorite places to be, the air is so sweet and clear. I will return next week fresh faced and well rested, with more pics to share. Hope you all have fun plans for the long weekend!

I've seen this poster around Chicago in different shops and I totally love it.

But then I read a post on the Blue Moss blog and saw that the same company makes a poster for the Great Lakes and I totally need it.

I grew up in Michigan and have spent so much time enjoying the Great Lakes.  You can also order screen-printed versions!  Check it out - Ork Posters.

hi mom

Happy Mothers Day to all the moms out there.  This is my mom and Gramma circa 1979.  Foxy ladies, huh?

You're the best Mom!

enjoy your weekend

oh man!

If I was in New York on Saturday I would be attending the Domino magazine tag sale. Sounds like there will be some awesome finds at great prices. Plus, wouldn't it be cool to see Domino's former style director's apartment! On the other hand, I'm sure it will be a madhouse - I'll console myself with that thought.

this was a big project

I'm not going to lie, I'm glad this project is finished. Nine custom long necklaces for Mother's Day.

I do love doing custom work. I promise not to complain about your project.

I have been so bad about posts lately. And there is a lot to be inspired by in Chicago these days. The flowers are blooming and the air is smelling sweet. I need to start carrying my camera with me at all times.

I've been doing a lot of work on my Etsy shop recently. I have new photography and a lot of new pieces I'm proud of. I'm slowly adding things. As a side note - adding an item on Etsy is a fairly time consuming project, I think it could definitely be improved somewhat.

Hope you're all feeling good!
