Before & After

We picked up another scrap item at the university surplus this week, an old type-writer table. Didn't Dustin do a fabulous job of cleaning and repainting it?!? I've already found a way to pile things up on it, whoops!

Tumbled Shards

I love these delicate and simple pieces I found on etsy this afternoon by Tumbled Shards. What a lovely little bouquet :-)

Wedding Wednesday

The above photos are from the talented wedding photographer we recently decided on for our special day - Martha Manning. We found Martha the good old fashion way (through the Knot), and what a relief she has been! All I wanted was someone who was experienced/talented (of course!), low key, and prepared to travel to western NC for a wedding in the middle of nowhere - oh, and someone who was not outrageous in price! It was a perfect fit!

City Guide - Raleigh

Yay! How exciting :-) I recently wrote the Raleigh, NC design guide for Design*Sponge. Grace of D*S was nice enough to allow me to contribute to her fabulous design blog so I gathered up my favorite hot spots in the triangle area (raleigh, durham, chapel hill) and wrote away!

Flickr Group: Vintage Illustration

I couldn't help but write about this flickr group. Filled with lovely compositions, Vintage Illustration has a little visual candy for everyone...enjoy :-)

Vintage *Finds*

While I was back in my hometown this weekend (helping my mother put the finishing touches on my wedding dress), I had the opportunity to shop some of the local antique/thrift shops. I have a thing for plates, there ... I've said it. So, to my surprise, I found a couple of interesting $.25 plates to add to my collection :-)

New Designs

I've been in super Gocco mode lately (I can't help myself, it is just too fun and easy to use). Just wanted to share what I have been cooking up. I hope to get a few more things into my etsy shop soon!

Fixer-Upper

We finally found one!....our first C&P Pilot letterpress. It's a beauty right? :-) With a little elbow grease, we are optimistic that we can turn this little guy around (and by little I mean 200lbs). Wish us luck, it should be arriving soon!
