Spooky Sweets

spooky treats Candy reigns supreme on Halloween for the pint-sized crew. But wouldn’t it be nice for the adults to satisfy their sweet tooth in a slightly more sophisticated way?? Whip up any of these spooky themed sweets for your All Hallows Eve parties or for your own witching hour cravings!

Doesn’t Blood Orange Bretons (a mix between a cake and tart) sound wickedly tasty? How about ghoulish black candy apples? Our favorite might just be the Pumpkin Meringue Tart (pumpkin everything, mmm!) Whatever your heart desires this Halloween, definitely make it delicious!

More sweet tooth satiating recipes are over on our Sweet Treats Pinterest Board; follow along!

Design Double Take

Beautiful, serene and content. Looking at this gorgeous image we felt all these things! A peaceful moment was captured and then enhanced with scrolling calligraphy and a thought-provoking quote. We love the way the words flow like thoughts and follow the contours of the subject!

Part of the Silhouettes Project was started as a way for hand letterer Pommel Lane to be more free flow with her lettering. As part of the project she selects images of anything, people, things in nature, something she sees on a daily walk and applies her wonderful lettering technique to it. We think it is a gorgeous project and we can’t wait to see more lovely lettered silhouettes!

Pinspiration: Fall Favorites

pinspiration fall favorites
Have you noticed the chill in the air, plaid, bountiful scarves, apple cider, and pumpkins- it must be Fall! Our favorite season of them all is in full swing and we’re loving every moment.

The golden fade from green to orange to red as the leaves show off their colors is mesmerizing. And keeping toasty with bonfires and a mug of hot apple cider is something we look forward to ALL year. We are gladly digging into the back of our closets and pulling out our cute knit beanies, gloves and boots to give them some love! Are you?

trés chic monogram moment

monogram moment White bathrooms can be a calming place with a spa like feel, but sometimes we want a bit of oomph! Vivid pink is a great accent color to add a powerful punch to a small powder room. We can just envision the bathroom this little corner resides in; playfully pink and trés chic! The travel-themed wallpaper is quirky and fun which keeps it from being overly feminine!

We love how the whimsical wallpaper is juxtaposed with a classic monogrammed hand towel. That traditional detail helps keep the room grounded, while the layering of white and pink is cohesive and playful.
