new from gingiber!

i’m so happy to see that one of my favorite companies has some very exciting news! stacie bloomfield, the illustrator behind gingiber, has just launched a brand new website bursting at the seams with pretty prints, pillows and tea towels. she also have a gorgeous line of new greeting cards that will debut in may (see a glimpse of them here). aren’t the adorable?

i have several pieces of stacie’s work in my home, and i love that they’re equally appealing to both children and adults. a few prints i couldn’t resist hanging in bear’s nursery, and thanks to stacie, a beautiful tea towel now in my kitchen! i love the sweetness stacie incorporates into her work full of homesteading goodness and woodland wonders. head on over to her brand new website to see more!

3 pieces of art

3 pieces of art

now that we’ve been living in our home for a while (10 months to be exact) and things are beginning to settle down after having bear, i’m determined to finish some decorating. i’ve got several bare walls and have been planning to add some special artwork throughout the house. here are few of the pieces i’ve been eying- aren’t they so beautiful? they all have special meaning to me. some things take time- like having a family, following your dream and loving your job. i always need to remind myself to worry less (it’s a constant struggle). and living in the mountains is near and dear to my heart. it’s so cozy here.

hexagon wall shelves

hexagon shelves (clockwise): haase handcraft | handmade riot | forma living

i’ve got the perfect spot above my workspace where i’d like to install a few hexagon wall shelves. it’s an angled space due to a staircase above it, so a cluster of hexagons would be perfect (plus, you know i’m obsessed with all things sweet as honey!). i’ve just been waiting to find the right ones, but i think i’ve narrowed it down to the sets above. do you have any favorite honeycomb shelves? i’ve also seen some darling house bookshelves lately, too!

**update! haase handcraft has been so kind enough to offer each of you an exclusive discount to their shop! enter code ‘ROOST1′ during checkout to receive 10% off. expires march 31st. thank you, hasse handcraft!
