i'm baaaaack!

Where the heck have I been, you ask?!
Road tripping up through the Pacific Northwest!
My family is from Washington, so we took a little over a week to drive up there to visit family. It was quite an experience! Having never driven that far on my own before, I can successfully say that I drove my mom, Andrew and I over 3500 miles, eek! Long drive, but we went through some gorgeous areas.
Case in point:

Snow capped mountains in June?!
Nuts, says this Southern California girl. :)

Anyways, I am home now, busily working on orders until our next road trip up to Chico next week! This time it will be Andrew, myself and my sweet boyfriend, John. We will be driving up to visit his family over the Fourth of July weekend! SO exciting! :)

But for the next few days, orders are on the agenda...

Such as these darling 4-inch anchors I made for a super sweet customer. I love how they turned out! Convo me through if you need some of these- they should be up in the shop soon. :)

And of course, a couple of new things can be found in the shop as well....

Vintage Italian Dictionary Pages! SO amazing, and I was flipping out when I found these! :) Find them here.

And something I've been meaning to put in the shop forever... 3-inch bird cutouts made from vintage children's books! SO fun :) If you need another of my cutout shapes in the children's books, feel free to convo me as well. You know I love custom orders!

For now, I am off to get some more work done and then take Andrew over to his best bud's house to swim and I get to chit-chat with my darling friend, Lynn. A fun summer day, for sure!
Happy Wednesday to all of you, xo!

love, boats, caterpillars, and a picnic. :)

Memorial Day was such a relaxing day for us! We usually don't do the whole beach thing like so many people in Southern California, but we did decide to head out to a gorgeous park. My boyfriend John, Andrew, and I packed a delicious picnic and drove out to Irvine Regional Park to spend the day. :)

Andrew was a wonderful photographer, snapping photos of John and I! :)

Our little picnic site was on a shady little knoll right by the water's edge. A gorgeous place to sit & enjoy the day, and the perfect spot for the boys to hop over to the boats for a little cruise around the lake! :)

We were invaded by caterpillars, which Andrew thought was fantastic. {Ok... I did, too! Those little guys are too cute!}

Another fine photo from my short little photographer man. ;) Love!
