i suppose it's the season and gift-giving that's inspired west elm's monogram shop. there are tons of options to make your own decor more "you" or to make a gift more heartfelt. i always thought of monogramming as something that older, boring, married couples did. thank you west elm for changing my mind.

Crimson is the Color of Christmas

my holiday cards are here! crimson is the color I chose to make my prints in for the season. (& a triangle tree is my seasonal pattern!) it goes along so well with my usual colors, and they just look christmas-sy without specific christmas images. they're simple, but get the holiday message across.

go to my shop's page to see all the patterns and colors that are available.
custom combinations are an option as well!

All About Eve

really. who doesn't love lemon? it's like right up there with chocolate, but completely the opposite.

i have a friend who loves lemon--i think about her whenever i see starbucks' lemon pound cake in the pastry display--so it was fun to surprise her at work with these lemon butter bars. mixing the shortbread by hand totally made me feel like a real chef. my cousin and i would always make the boxed version growing up. they'd almost never come out right and would always stick, so we'd end up eating it straight from the pan. i was proud to make these from scratch, and succeed.

Vintage Locker Baskets.

okay, okay. no need to call me a lousy blogger. this is all I want to be doing. sadly, these last four weeks of school will be kicking my butt. i'll attempt to update as often as possible, but for now I just wanted to write about these gems of wire.

though considered "vintage," these little babies are pretty easy to find around and for not-so-expensive at all. way to make organizing pretty & fun.
