we added a little excitement to our house.  
please say hello to poppy.  

 she is recycled {or i should say, upcycled}, used, or as everyone else says, rescued.  
so far, so sweet.  welcome home poppy.


folded :: the origami collection :: inspiration

life has been a bit out of our control lately and sometimes a little distraction and inspiration is needed.  
beginning at twitter since discovering origami jewelry {i love the crane, it reminds me of my wedding and my grandmother.  we folded 1,001 paper cranes in honor of my grandma and for good luck}.  jack + jenn, hijiri from heart fish and i started a project together. 
we all continued in our own discoveries and shared links here and there…it all snowballed from there.  
now we are all using this as our platform to design something new through our own medium and at the end of the process we will be exchanging and linking back and forth to each other to share with you. 
Today is the first day, a starting point of sorts, for our “folded :: the origami collection” — today we are simply sharing our inspirations.  brilliant for spring {which officially starts this weekend} we are finding inspiration through various flowers.   
i simply love cherry blossoms, especially this time of year.  
tune in and see what we all come up with.  in the mean time, check out jack + jenn's blog and etsy shop, as well as hijiri's blog, heart fish and etsy shop.


baby gift love

i spent a little time making a care package of baby girl gifts for my aunt.  

a handful of urpies and burpies, a wristlet for her keys, a chic nursing cover and a monogramed diaper and wipes basket.  my favorite addition to this package was the basket, featuring the new baby's initials on the upcycled coffee sack basket with a soft pink lining.  
perfectly sized to fit a handful diapers and a box of wipes.  
of course, lots of pink and cute patterns.
grandma and grandpa will go by "weezer and geezer" {you know, from steel magnolias}.
the oilcloth tote will be perfect for trips to their house.  
i also included a little keepsake block with all the little one's statistics of her special birthday.  
i hope the new mommy loves it all.
