Sigh. That's all I really feel like doing lately. That is, spreading out a blanket in a secluded field under the shade of a tree and just relax.

Retro.etc & Lotta Kühlhorn

If I ever visit Stockholm Sweden I would totally fill my suitcase with items from Retro.etc

The shop is a fun and colorful fusion of the old and the new, providing retro & vintage products along with some modern day designers such as my designer idol Orla Kiely (see her pretty notebooks above?!) and some fabulous newer designers like Lotta Kühlhorn.

Her designs are bright and bold, with all of that voluptuous retro appeal that I live for. Just look at that wall covered in her fun designs! Here are just a few of her kitchen wares:

Apple Cutting Boards
Bricka Tray

Apple Coasters

Beetroot Tea Towel

Don't forget to check out more of her stuff over at her website! She has tons of wonderful patterns & designs to rifle through!

Spring Awakening

The weather has backtracked her in the Bay Area. Cloudy skies, rainy weather, it is a little disappointing to tell the truth. So these spring filled photos from Abby Try Again are just what the doctor ordered for the weather blues. Light, airy, with springy colors popping out of every photo. Mmmhmm...I feel myself cracking a smile already.
