Holiday at Smith Rock

19 09 2012

We decided to take a mini holiday for the last camping trip of the summer. We adore Smith Rock. Always look forward to our yearly camping trip at the magnificent spot. It was perfect weather and truly magical.

We cherish our summers here in the pacific northwest. Warm weather and blue sky are rare here for most of the year. B and I usually try to have our mini holidays through out the summer. We always look forward to our yearly back packing and camping adventure. This year we returned to Cooper Spur trail on Mt. Hood. We had warm sunny weather and lots of blue sky. Plus the wild flowers were in bloom. Truly heaven on earth.




Happy 4th!

Neon Eggs

6 04 2012

I am happy to report that my dearest friends Sally and Caitlin will be hanging out at our lovely studio starting this weekend until beginning of May.  I’m running away to visit my sweet mum and papa in Bangkok.  I’m so excited to have Sally in our little creative space on Saturdays from noon-ish until 6 pm.  Of course my partner in crime Caitlin will be there on Sundays at noon-ish until 5 pm.  Please stop by and say hello to Sally and Caitlin this weekend.  Also our website has gone live since Tuesday.  You can now purchase the new beauties on our site.  It was the best birthday present ever from our programmer Jeremy.  Hooray!

In the meantime these ultra modern neon eggs are quite exquisite.

You could check out this great idea on ohjoy.

Again please swing by and visit Sally on Satuday and Caitlin on Sunday.  Thank you so much to Sally and Caitlin for holding down the fort.  xoxo

Happy Easter everyone!

Happy Halloween

Lately i’ve been obsessed with baking. It started with cupcakes and has moved onto cookies, bars and pies in a jar. I just want to bake all day long. I’ve been looking at many blogs, but I really enjoy Glorious Treats. I like the step by step decorating direction and the variety of information. Here are some images of a Halloween themed black and white desserts.

Hope everyone has a happy Halloween and a great Monday.
