Loving Lately...

A collection of things I've come across online that I'm loving lately...from Garance Dore illustrations to the perfect tea towel for any sweet tooth...

  1. Elise Blaha shares her inspiration behind choosing the colours for the Project Life Seafoam Edition. I love a behind-the-scenes of any design process, so it's lucky for me this is a series not just a single post.  I can relate to the Goldilocks moment she refers to when making sure a colour choice is "just right"...that moment when it clicks and you can't wait to get on with the project...love.
  2. If only I lived close enough to Paris that YSL might invite me to do a featured blog post with them...Carrie from Wish Wish Wish gets to live that moment. Everything from the shoes & tights to the Parisian cafe street-scape complimenting the black and the gold of YSL is just gorgeous.
  3. I have come to accept that I will forever be smitten with kraft paper...this DIY from Amanda over at Wit and Whistle shows that all you need is some twine and a metallic pen and you have everything you need for gorgeous gift wraps.
  4. Speaking of smitten...Garance Dore is now selling prints of her illustrations. I wonder if Santa could swing by...?
  5. The Joy of Ex Foundation has some sweet tea towels and aprons available via Birdsnest...I had trouble choosing between this one and the "I can hear a chocolate foil from 100 yards"...perfect for any baker/sweet tooth you may know!

Lastly this series of photos by Cherry Blossom Girl of NYC in winter makes me want to watch Serendipity with a hot chocolate in hand. If all goes to plan, this time next year we will be on our way home from an NYC winter right about now :)

Feel free to share what you're loving lately...!
