We love it Wednesday: Custom Portraits

I found Nan Lawson's Illustrations recently, and immediately fell in love. Her drawings are so incredibly sweet. The best part of this discovery is that she offers custom portraits! It got me thinking, with wedding season coming up that these would make great gifts. At a affordable price, she'll even add in a pet or two! Be sure to swing by her Etsy shop to see more of her inspiring work.

We Love it Wednesday: Vancouver Olympics

It's that time of year, well, that time of year that comes every two years. I love it. It's an amazing feeling knowing that for 17 days, the entire world can come together and swell with pride for their home country. Language barriers cease to exist, as all athletes come for one goal - to support their country with the hope of bringing home a medal.

In honor of those beautiful tokens of accomplishment, here's a look at a few gold, silver and bronze finds:


1. Gold Olympic necklace by Made by Sam
2. Silver Moose necklace by Zooz Jewelry
3. Bronze Bird Postcard necklace by Chrys Designs Jewelry

Sometimes I want to be an Olympic athlete and wish I would have pursued all those activities my parents generously offered through my childhood. Then I sit back, think of my age and realize that I used my talents elsewhere. In the meantime, I'll gladly relax on the couch with a blanket and a glass of wine and cheer on those athletes. Go USA!

The snowboarding half-pipe is one of my favorite events to watch, along with speed skating.

What about you? What's your favorite part of the Olympic games?

Wouldn't a table full desserts sitting on top of these recycled vintage cake plates be oh so beautiful?

Ringing in the New Year with Good News!

We kept joking that 2010 was going to be our year, and sure enough first thing in the morning on January one we received some VERY exciting news! We are thrilled to share that our work has been featured in Southern New England Weddings.

We worked with Ivy last May to create some menus for her Cape Cod wedding. We felt blessed to be apart of such a beautiful event, and you can imagine our excitement when we able to see how her whole day came together! Thank you to Ivy and to Southern New England Weddings for starting off our year with such wonderful news!

We Love it Wednesday: Team Orange Shirts

It's been three days since our inaugural half-marathon, and while we're still planning a full blog post about the entire experience, here's a quick peek at what we wore on Saturday.

Orange Blossom Ink race shirt

Custom designed race shirts! After choosing a race-friendly fabric for our shirt, we uploaded our layouts to Zazzle and used their easy-breezy, step-by-step instructions. Less than a week later, they arrived on our doorstep, ready to wear. Something about wearing matching shirts (and pants!) seemed to help make those 13.1 miles fly by a bit quicker.

Stay tuned for a full race day post in the upcoming week!
