On Wednesday I took the water taxi from Dumbo to 34th St. in Manhattan.  It was such a beautiful day, and a great way to travel instead of the subway!  I hope you all have a wonderful, lazy, long weekend ahead!


Fall Trends by Anona

Today I am excited to share with you Fall mood boards by Anona Studio.  Anona is a boutique print design studio started by my friend Sarah Leaman and RenĂ©e Shortell in 2011.  They specialize in hand drawn or painted prints and also have an amazing collection of vintage pieces.  For those of you who don't work in the fashion or home industry, most companies buy artwork for the patterns you see on the finished product.  These mood boards definitely have me looking forward to Fall clothing.  Which one is your favorite?

One Year Ago Today

Today is our one year wedding anniversary - It has gone so quickly!  Tonight we're celebrating with dinner at one of my favorite Brooklyn restaurants, a di la.  I feel so lucky to have this wonderful man as my husband.

Building Block: Spring Preview

When the Building Block Spring 13 preview lookbook showed up in my inbox I was pretty excited.  I really love the simplicity of this line and those tassels!  The camel leather next to the wood and mint tassel is a pretty perfect color combination.

One of my favorite flowers: Queen Anne's Lace


Cape Cod

I don't know about you, but this heat has been making me so tired!  Luckily this weekend was a bit cooler, but I'm still wishing I could escape to the beach.  Since that's not in the plans, I thought I'd share some more photos from my trip to the Cape last month.



I love seashells - they remind me of home.  I used to collect them and keep them in jars, and last time I was home I took some back with me.  Do you collect anything?

One more shot from my Mom's garden.  This flower is so strange but beautiful.


House Plants

Our bathroom is a bit dreary.  I wish we had a window so that we could keep plants in the bathroom like these images below.  I love this lush way to camouflage areas you'd like to hide.


The Garden

My Mom has always been an amazing gardener.  When I was home in July I took these photos of her garden.  I have many memories of these flowers and hope you enjoy this short walk through the garden.

Erie Basin

I've been wanting to stop by Erie Basin and finally got a chance over the weekend.  They have an amazing tumbler filled with beautiful images from their store.  I highly suggest checking it out for a bit of inspiration.


Friday Photo

I took this photo a while ago when I was out to dinner with Steve.  I keep coming back to it because I love how dark and moody it is.  You can barely make out the vase of flowers.  Subtle color combinations are some of my favorites.  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.


Dream Studio

I've been working on cleaning and organizing our second bedroom to make it a productive working space.  It's really great having a bit of extra space, and this has me imagining my 'dream studio.'  I'd love to have a big work table, lots of shelves, walls covered in white pin board, and all of my supplies out and neatly organized.  We don't really have quite enough space for all of this, especially since this is a shared office space for my husband as well, but that's ok....a girl can dream!  Do you have a home office or studio?  I'd love to know your tips for keeping it organized.
