As the summer comes to an end and school gets ready to start we’ve been doing lots of organization around our home. We partnered with Birch Lane and added a new piece of furniture to our entryway to store all their school papers and then we added several new baskets throughout the house.
Month: August 2015
The girls have been really into baking the last several months and have been begging to do a cupcake and lemonade stand all summer. We originally were just planning on using our folding table but Lola was convinced “we should at least TRY to build something”. I told them if we had enough scrap wood in the garage then we could.
As we get ready for the girls to head back to school we’ve been doing lots and lots of organization around here. We’ve been cleaning out closets and baskets and all sorts of storage places to get them ready for the new school year. One of the spaces we worked on making a little more functional for us this past weekend was our entryway.
This weekend we had the honor of being featured on the HomeGoods blog sharing our thoughts about using gray in our guest room. Here are a few of the images they shared:
We also wanted to let you know that we will be restocking our Great Gatsby, “So we beat on…” sign this morning at 10AM.

With August half way over it’s time for us to start getting ready for autumn so we are introducing our newest print and also have started restocking several of our fall items. First, here is our newest print with a quote by Emily Brontë “Every leaf speaks bliss to me, falling from the autumn tree.”
I drew that on a chalkboard several years ago but at the time we weren’t selling prints so I just now finally rewrote it so we could make them into prints.
