Horse Hanger

There is something about horse related home decor that gets me every time. Throw in a coat of chartreuse paint and I am sold! I could think of about a million uses for this great looking vintage horse hanger- kitchen towel holder, bathroom hook, front door adornment... Salvaged from an antique shop, sanded and re-finished with a a bright coat of paint this guy is ready for his new home! Check out Squirrel and Monkey for more fabulous iron pieces and more!

Have a great weekend! xo

Hazel and Hunter

I happened upon Hazel and Hunter and it was love at first sight! I am always fond of vintage pieces getting a new lease on life and at Hazel and Hunter you get just that. Along with a selection of antique furniture you will also find gorgeous hand printed pillows made from natural cotton hemp fabrics. They all have a very clean, modern look to them. I could come up with quite a few places that I could use these beauties! Mile End pillow featured above, inspired by Montreal's Mile End District.

Great looking Camilla footstool. Reupholstered in a bright and elegant Thomas Paul fabric. I love the colors and the lines of this piece.

Ficelles pillow printed in a vibrant cherry red. Perfection!

YY Studio

Hope you all had a great weekend! As the days are getting cooler, I am alway on the look out for some new and cozy pieces to keep warm in. I have my eye on this great wool wrap trench by YY Studio. I am always looking for alternatives to a heavy coat for the winter and this looks amazing! Handmade to fit so you are sure to get this piece just right, the trench is available in the pure virgin wool shown above, in solid wool colors or it can be made in thick cashmere which sounds too good to take off! Check out all the great styles available here.

Fall Trees

While my mind has been lost in a cloud creating new holiday designs, and printing orders like a mad woman- the weather has begun to change and it really feels like Fall. I love the weather getting cooler, but it usually means the assorted chores that ensue- putting the tank tops away and bringing out the sweaters, putting that extra blanket on the bed and needing slippers at night instead of having bare feet.

Yesterday, I got done with work while the sun was still out and got a chance to hang outside with the dogs for a bit. Looking around I noticed that our enormous tree is the only one on our street whose leaves have yet to change, or fall off... T just keeps telling me there are a whole lot of leaves up there that still have to come down. I am eagerly anticipating the leaves changing from green to orange to fire engine red.

Have a lovely weekend! I will be spending mine racking the front yard, where we have another giant tree whose leaves are definitely falling off already! xo
