Been noticing lots of fantastic navy pins over on Pinterest lately. I wish that our sky would start turning a little more of a blue color, gray is nice, but getting old. It is the first day of spring, but in Montana, there isn’t much sign of spring poking its head out anywhere. On the plus side, there should be lots of fresh snow on the mountain this weekend! It’s Retro Day on Sat, I am wearing my vintage down vest, along with some nasty old goggles (that I can’t really see out of, they’re so scratched).

Happy Valentines Day

ValentineHello all you lovers. I hope you have a fantastic day of love. I am celebrating Valentines Day by showing my affection for the people in my life who I love. It is a great chance to say thank you to my friends, for putting up with me!


Go Ice Skating

Kate Spade made a list of things it’s okay to do after Thanksgiving, and I really liked #10. Any excuse for me to not go to the gym is a good one!  So I made this little doodle, I liked how the ampersand looks like the designs a skater makes on the ice. Hopefully you are enjoying winter! It hasn’t stopped snowing here for 24 hrs, and I’m loving it! ice skating

Give Thanks.

give thanksWhat sort of Thanksgiving traditions do you have? With my family we usually eats a lot of food, play games, and nap all afternoon. This year I am going to spend Thanksgiving in Washington with my grandparents and family there. My favorite dish is the sweet potato casseroles… Yum! The more brown sugar & butter the better! Do you plan to travel or stay home for the Thanksgiving holiday?

was thinking about the bare wall in my bedroom, and what I could do to spruce it up, I have a difficult time finding art that means anything to me, that I can afford. There is always random pieces at thrifts, but they don’t really resonate with me. I was looking through my photos and decided there were lots that had similar color tones and they all mean a lot to me, each photo has memories and stories behind them, and remind me of the special times. So I figured, this is the perfect wall decor! I am getting some printed and finding some sort of matching frames for them to go in. Hopefully I can create a collage that is balanced and cohesive.

Pinterest Crush – Autumn Oranges

These images do a pretty good job of depicting how I have been feeling lately, the fireplace has been lit, the leaves are turning, and the mornings are crisp. I decided to try a paleo diet, to see how it affects by skin and digestive system, these pumpkin date bars look fabulous. This weekend some friends are coming to visit from out of town, we plan to hike and explore, I am super excited to be in the woods! Hopefully we catch sight of some wildlife!

a vintage inspired logo

vintage logoThis is a logo I made for a friend. She restores vintage furniture and other household items and sells at markets and bazaars around town. She is going to use the logo on her item tags and signage. We will have to see about getting some business cards made and maybe a website! The logo was definitely an on-going project for quite a while, you can view the beginnings of the work here. I am thrilled with the final outcome of the logo, it suits her brand very nicely and serves the tag purpose wonderfully!


Pinterest Crush: Summer Blues


[Pool Shadows] [Silk Scarf] [Scallop Wallpaper] [Mountain Brooch] [Dripp]

loving the blues and greens I’ve been finding all over pinterest! These pins remind me of the blue skies and the green EVERYTHING outside. It’s been raining a lot so the grass, trees and plants are all very green! Last weekend we hiked to Cobalt Lake. It was beautiful, the waterfalls were gushing and the wildflowers and bear grass were blooming. We saw quite a bit of bear scat, there was a moose in the meadow, and the birds were singing their songs! I will post pictures soon.
