new website inspiration

1 – wild and free print // 2 – unknown, please share if you know the source! // 3 – mara zepeda // 4 – winter landscape mug // 5 –  invitation by feast // 6 – momentary escape hand cream // 7 – simplexity // 8 – powder coated desk clips

if you’ve been reading lately, you know that going home to roost is getting a new design! jo klima from the darling tree (stay tuned, her new website is launching TODAY!) is working her magic again for us. since she designed this very blog for 6 years ago, i knew i wanted her to do it again!

i’ve seen the first glimpses of the site and they are jaw-droppingly gorgeous (i shared a tiny sneak peek over on instagram today!). i just want to curl up and live there forever. which is good, since this is pretty much my second home, anyways! above are a few of the things we used as inspiration for the design (all linked above).

i’m possibly most excited about a brand new page we’ll be launching for the roost tribe, as well! it’s about time this special membership has a special home. :) we plan to launch the new design on monday, january 5th. i can hardly wait!!

bobbie lou’s fabric factory

bobbie lou's fabric factory

chelsea graham opened her online fabric shop in 2009 after having an excess of fabric from the makings of her etsy shop (don’t we all know the feeling!). the part i love most about chelsea’s story is that she named her business after her grandmother, bobbie lou. bobbie lou was an amazing seamstress who sewed clothes, dolls, blankets and whatever else her imaginations could conjure up for her three daughters and eight grandchildren. chelsea keeps the spirit of her grandmother as the inspiration for everything she does.

bobbie lou’s fabric factory is filled with fun, bright fabrics for endless beautiful creations. chelsea only sells fabrics she truly loves and would love to sew with herself. i’m sure her grandmother would approve!
