In celebration of Christmas and the holiday season, we extend warm wishes to you and your loved ones.
Merry Christmas – See you in 2014!
As a designer, I would be lying if I said that I do not swoon over typography. Especially vintage typography. How amazing is this? I found it on the bottom of these canisters. I don’t know what I was more excited to find – the abandoned canisters on a shelf waiting for a home or the beautifully worn type on the bottom…
Speaking of Sarasota, I am thrilled to be going on a vacation in August/September. Finally.
My sister and I are doing a much dreamed about girls trip to Siesta Key (we will be flying into Sarasota). It’s the first time my feet have touched sand in 7 years. Sad, I know. With the cost of Chicago living, every day is about living frugally, so a vacation has been nowhere in reach. Finally, with a huge leap of faith and my sister by my side, we’re taking the plunge for a much deserved vacation.
Beaches, here we come!
I’ll keep you posted on what I plan on packing and buying for the trip.
I am excited to say that I have found an exciting vintage treasure today, ok maybe a set-of-four treasure!
It’s a set of four sugar/flour canisters by Shafford. The pattern is Sarasota, how appropriate for summer weather, huh? I admit, shamefully, that I am not familiar with this pattern, and have had no luck researching it, but is it not darling? It looks about 1950’s and is hand shaped and hand painted. It’s the pop of fun everyone needs while baking.
Stop by and check it out in the Boom Shop. If anyone knows anything about this pattern, please let me know. I’m dying for more information…
A dear friend is getting married in November. We’re celebrating her bachelorette party at her family’s cabin in Williams Bay, WI (on Lake Geneva). I finished the design for the eVite, which has put me in a vacation frame of mind. I am thoroughly looking forward to a weekend on the water with girl chat, wine, and sun. Is it August yet?!
