Happy Friday... 31 Mar 2006

...may your weekend be filled with all good little things...like daylight savings, empty laundry hampers, a light Spring breeze, and a bit of something sweet.

Cool Artist: Jaime Ursic 31 Mar 2006

I've been really into organic & abstract art lately...with colorful, but not overly bright hues. Jaime Ursic is based out of L.A. and creates painting and monoprints in a way I really love.

vintage wow 30 Mar 2006

If you don't already know who Lena Corwin is, now's the time to be even more wowed by her. Lena's wedding is featured in the new Spring 2006 issue of Martha Stewart Weddings. It's beautiful, whimsical, and so unique. With vintage textiles and woodland-inspired accents, it perfectly captures her style and seems like a wonderful party that everyone really enjoyed. One of my favorite parts are the outfits that Lena and her husband Josh wore to their wedding. You can see a snippet below, but I won't give it all away...

Even if you're not planning a wedding, I highly recommend picking up the new issue of MS Weddings. Lena's story alone will fill you with inspiration.


{For more inspirations from Lena, check out her blog and my recent interview with her.}

i like sandwiches too! 30 Mar 2006

I've been trying to experiment a lot with food lately...mixing Thai ingredients into other more American dishes. And just more experimental stuff in general. So, with all the cooking I'm doing...here's my new favorite blog that I highly recommend, Everybody Likes Sandwiches. She has great images of her creations, recipes to match, and a nicely & whimsically designed site!


Cool new tees: Lucyology 29 Mar 2006

Hot off the t-shirt press, are some brand new tees by Lucyology...in sheer heathered light-weight material and adorned in graphic, tribal-like prints! Also, check out Seamsters, the blog by the folks behind Lucyology.

photos + items + beauty 28 Mar 2006

I've realized that in another life (or maybe even this one), I would like to be a photo stylist. I really can't get enough of product shots or interior shots that make these things look good enough to eat (especially when the image is not food!). Here's a batch that have me mesmerized by their simplicity & color...

The Yum Box by Jill Smith is really such a great idea. In each set, you receive the invitation, candy, label, box..and all the items needed to send out super fun party or shower invitations. Check out more of Jill's great product line here.
