My brother-in-law just posted this picture of a bunch of us doing the tourist-y thing in Cleveland a couple of weeks back and I had to share. That’s Jared and I looking like total vampires in the middle with two of Jared’s brothers, our sister-in-law, soon to be sister-in-law and adorable new niece, Sophie. We went up to the observation deck at Terminal Tower and spent a couple of hours at the Tall Ships Festival on the lake before heading to a Mexican restaurant to eat and sit in the air conditioning.
I have a bunch of good stuff lined up for this week, including the spread from Portland Bride & Groom Magazine (finally…) and some beautiful antique treasures my Grandma sent me home with. Oh! And pictures of my new mid-century side chairs! I’ve been a busy girl with the camera today. See you tomorrow!
I spotted this photo on Simple Blueprint today and I’m suddenly in the mood for autumn! I would so love a pair of beautiful beaded moccasins like these from House of Harlow 1960. I would run around everywhere on (dry) autumn days in them. They are so gorgeous, earthy, colorful and look super comfortable. With this awful humidity we’ve been having here in Ohio, I welcome fall, just not winter.
At first I wasn’t sure if these were real or a digital image, but it seems these ribbon sculptures by Baku Maeda of Ribbonesia are in fact real! Each animal is different and he continues to create new animals and new “expressions”. I had a hard time picking favorites, so here are a few more I liked. Check out the blog for more ribbon animals.
Sorry about yesterday. I was out of town unexpectedly again working on some new prototypes for Outrageous Dog‘s fall line. I’m back now, but I’m so nervous and very busy. Hopefully soon I’ll be able to share good news with you all. In the mean time, cross your fingers for us and I’ll continue to post beautiful things to keep my mind off this waiting game.
I’m off to eat breakfast and do some cleaning while I ponder today’s posts.
