Daily Design Inspiration

And to all a good night...

I am taking a short blogging break as I still have much holiday making, baking, post office mailing, wrapping, and shopping to do.  Not to mention spending time with cherished family and friends and enjoying the last few fleeting moments of 2009.  I will have Daily Design Inspiration posts scheduled daily to keep you inspired until I come back after the new year.  Thank you for spending this last year with me, I hope my posts have inspired you in some little way.  May you all have a safe and happy holiday and new year, may you receive everything you wish for.  Happy Holidays!

Baby It's Cold Outside...

Making it Pretty

Hopefully by now you have most of your holiday shopping finished.  I'm still trying to get a few last minute things.  I do this every year, I scury around at the last second because I feel like I haven't bought enough. This year I'm making most of my gifts and so I am also putting extra thought into the wrapping and presentation of said gifts.  Here is a bit of wrapping inspiration for you....

Things I'm Coveting

Wouldn't this Amy Butler bag be wonderful for all your holiday travel plans...I have a Vera Bradley that I love but I always feel like every other girl at the airport has the same thing as I do!

I love this jadeite desk set. I have the perfect little spot for it in my studio

I've had my eye on this camera for a while now...I found a vintage polaroid at the thrift store (no idea if it works, and won't suck it up and spend $25+ for film) so this is the perfect alternative.

I saw this calendar the other day while perusing around Purl Bee's website.  It would provide the perfect spark of creativity in my studio

So that's what I'm lusting after right now, what about you?  Anything special you are hoping Santa will bring you this year?

Photo Love - Simon Filip

I love the photography of Simon Filip, and he's only much talent!  He even has an Etsy shop , but sadly, only one print for sale as of right now.

Milk Glass Obsession

I've had a bit of a milk glass obsession since my wedding when I scoured ebay and thrift stores across the city looking for milk glass vases.  Who couldn't love something as simple and as beautiful as this...

So sorry...

I'm so sorry for the light posting, I have a couple of huge soap orders I am trying to fill and holiday obligations that have me very busy.  Things should be back to normal in a couple of days!
