woodland creatures by gerren lamson (3)

this series of woodland creatures from gerren lamson took my breath away. each animal is made from vintage photo elements of forest scenes, botanical pieces, patterns, and paintings of nature. they each are set on beautiful weathered forest background and have a gentle halftone to imbue them with the spirit of the past. there are 12 forest critters in all, each available from satchel and sage.

weathered woodland creatures

i’m thinking of grabbing several for baby roost’s nursery, since they fit perfectly with our theme of woodland creatures. though it’s hard to choose, i think my favorites are the bear, fox and deer. what’s yours?

vintage wallpapered staircase

after we move in to our new place, i’ll have a set of stairs that lead nowhere other than my very own lofted studio space. since the entire area will be dedicated to creativity, i’m thinking about doing something inspirational to the staircase itself. you know, something to get my creative juices flowing before i even arrive.  i love how sarah over at sarah moore vintage wallpapered these stairs using scraps of vintage wallpaper she’d collected over the years. though it’s a busy look, i think the style and colors really pull together to give it lots of sweet character. doing a simple search for ‘wallpapered stairs’ will quickly give you a glance at all the possibilities a little wallpaper can provide!

three potato four is the online version of that store you’d love to get lost in. wandering around nostalgic to times long ago, feeling your way through one decade at a time. it’s the kind of store where david would drop me off, then go for a 4 hour bike ride before returning to pick me up. i love how eclectic the findings are and that they change so frequently, nearly every item is one of kind! head on over to three potato four to discover more vintagey-goodness!

vintage kantha quilts

vintage kantha quilts one of my dear friends recently gave me a vintage kantha quilt, and i have been curled up underneath it ever since! kantha quilts are one of a kind blankets hand-sewn by artisans in india. each of them are pieced together using vintage saris, which gives them an already ‘worn in’ soft and flowy feel. the perfect throw to use for naps and movie cuddling!

here are a few of my favorite places to find them:

- connected fair trade (pictured above)
- amber interiors
- etsy
- niki jones

crocheted circle placemats

crochet circle placemats (1)


i’ve been oohing and ahhing over these crocheted circle placemats ever since i saw them on domestic peacock. though they remind me of a dottie angel project, the pattern actually comes from another favorite blog, the purl bee. i want to place them on an old worn-in table made of barn wood, adorned with a modern and sleek white table setting- the center of which will be filled vintage milk glass vases and yellow daisies.
