DIY Embroidered Wooden Box

In today’s digital age, it’s easy to lose sight of beautiful, tangible objects like handwritten letters, notepads, and photographs. When I stumbled across Artifact Uprising, a Denver based company who transforms your digital images into professional-quality books and individual prints on thick card stock, I immediately placed an order of all of my family photos that I had been saving on my computer for the past year. This would make the perfect gift for my husband for Father’s Day. But of course, I had to add a handmade element. I ordered a gorgeous beetle pine box, to store all these precious keepsakes, and embroidered the lid with yarn. Embroidering wood, you say?!? It’s actually quite easy. Follow along!

Rifle Paper Co. x Hygge & West

Just when I was about to order wallpaper for our newly renovated powder room, I heard news of our beloved Rifle Paper Co. collaborating on a series of wall coverings with Hygge & West. After much anticipation, the collection finally launched yesterday and just as I predicted, I’m back to the drawing board. Will it be the pineapples or the peonies? Samples are ordered. I’ll let you know . . .

Burberry Prorsum Resort 2015

Calf grazing pencil skirts, covered in paillettes and fringe. Paper thin sweaters with sayings inspired by vintage book covers. Dip dyed, ombré trench coats. Everything about Christopher Bailey‘s resort collection feels youthful, feminine and fresh . . . rain or shine. I mean, I don’t think I ever needed a pencil skirt as badly as I do now! And though the pieces from the collection is probably more than some of our pocketbooks can bare, at least you can walk away with a few styling points come fall.
