september has come to a close and october is almost here! as i do every month, i’m sharing with you this month’s recap of the roost tribe, which gives you a sneak peek of what roost tribe members received last month. if you’re interested in receiving it, you still can. i’ll be sending out a recap on saturday to members with all of the content in it from last month so no one will have missed anything, regardless of when you might have joined during the month.
that means, that if you join before saturday, october 3rd you’ll still get all of september’s content + october’s content as well – that’s two months for the price of one!
a printable to-do list.
the chirp, chirp pattern collection.

a list of favorite links and resources rounded up through the month.
plus more! being a member is tons of fun and we would love to have you join the family!
next on my list of items to get or gift are these beautiful camp mugs from illustratus store. i could just eat up these delicious fall colors, couldn’t you? this time of year always gets me in the mood for cool crisp mornings, camp fires and spending lots of time outdoors. i’d love to wake up to a hot cup of jo and morning campfire with one of these mugs! coming in at just $25, i think these mugs are the perfect item to get or gift!
when my dear friend, gina from the little general introduced me to little willow tree, my jaw dropped. i instantly dove into her instagram feed and oohed and ahhed my way down the pages. jada makes bohemian inspired rompers, dresses, kimonos, crop tops and more right here in the south!
and of course, i was blown away to see that she uses several prints from my current fabric line, cultivate (see above bottom right and below)! i absolutely love the attention to detail and whimsy she adds with lace, fringe, pompoms and trim. can’t you just imagine how fun it would be to spin from side to side wearing the fringe bloomers below?
so of course, i quickly had to get a bundle of little willow tree goodies for baby ollie! below is the pacakge i received just a few weeks ago and i’ve been swooning over the pieces ever since. i ordered an array of sizes (up to two years), so i’m sure you’ll see pictures of her wearing these pieces as she grows into them over on my instagram feed.
succulence was inspired by my favorite type of house plant, the succulent (i can count 14 of them from where i sit right now!). i love succulents because they have the unique ability to absorb even the tiniest bits of water. they thrive on what they preserve and are able to constantly create new growth by propagation.
succulence represents the ability to survive on little and to constantly create new beginnings. with an everlasting drive to evolve over time, i hope this collection will inspire you to follow your biggest dreams.
i’m sharing a few of my favorite prints below, and the full collections at the bottom of this post along with info on how and where to purchase this collection – just keep scrolling!
