I've been feeling so uninspired lately (as evidenced by my lack of blog posts). But I need to gear up - I'm taking Friday and Monday off to do some serious wedding planning. These birch bark tubes from Small Stump are everywhere, and I think they'd make great centerpieces.
I've been in LA for work this week. Not much time for the Internet, but I did stumble on Julia Rothman's new blog, Book By Its Cover(via Apartment Therapy - The Nursery). An illustrator and pattern designer, Rothman provides lots of graphic inspiration by featuring her favorite books in several categories, including: Design, Fine Art, Handmade, Children's, and Comics.
It's been a gorgeous weekend here in Chicago - lots of sun and warm weather. It's got me thinking about Summer-ish things like these bombes from Ici Ice Cream (pictured in the April '07 House & Garden).
Apparently Theo and I weren't the only ones enjoying the weather... we spotted Ted Allen when we were walking around yesterday.
My mom, sister and I just got back from a much needed mini-vacation. We had four days of sun and fun in Mexico! No computers, no phones... just some girl talk, some shade-bathing, and more than a little champagne. Here's to hoping my vacation-induced calm lasts through the work week!
