oh baby

i letterpressed these a while back for a friend's baby announcements:

making these was pretty hard for me - i still have lots to learn - but worth it.

i was going to put up a shot of just one single announcement but then i decided i liked this one best - the letterpress really pops next to the newspaper and other every day items.

food + flower + style

i would like to take a flower arranging class from Anna Campbell of Food + Flower + Style...

it looks like she's only got july 12 posted but hopefully there will be more dates soon. she has a cool business with her husband that she describes (along with a description of her loft) here.

at the renegade craft fair, i particularly liked the Sonnenzimmer booth. they print and sell striking posters like this one titled Smalltown Supersound Showcase 2008:

you can buy one here.

also, if you are in sf, i highly recommend going to the deyoung and watching the movie about dale chihuly's glass making/glass blowing. what an awesome combination of brute strength and fine detail work. also, what a great example of successful collaborative work - in art or otherwise. see the movie before going into the show!

funky light

this pendant light fixture rocks! from hive modern.

another funky lighting idea calling out to me loud and clear right now (way cheaper too) is to get 2-3 of these from ikea and hang them at different heights...

the camaraderie of the peloton

my friend sarah is competing in the Tour de France Knit Along. i love her attitude (and way with words): "My hope is that the camaraderie of the peloton will help me to speed quickly through another knitted object."

these are pretty awesome knitted objects. i have a cool brown knitted cap from sarah and have seen some pretty sweet other creations. to wit: antonio the fish.

me and you

tomorrow is our anniversary and this card from linda and harriet says it all...

happy anniversary to my other half ;)

thanks to joanna at a cup of jo for the find!
