Just Life / 4th at the Beach

Going to the beach for the 4th of July is my new favorite tradition, and can't wait for next year! I couldn't believe how beautiful all the fireworks were all down the coast. Above are some (out of focus, and fuzzy) shots of the fun we had with pretty colorful smoke and sparkly fountains. My goal before next year is to learn how to use my dslr to take clearer less fuzzy shots of the fireworks at night!

Design | Americana + Happy 4th of July

Just wanted to stop by and say happy Independence Day everyone! Also thought it would be a good opportunity to share a project I worked on with the Pebbles team at American Crafts! I had so much fun helping create the Americana collection, here are some of my favorite papers and ephemera from the line. You can see the rest of it here...and hopefully I will get it all gathered and photographed for the portfolio someday ;) Hope you enjoy, and wishing everyone a safe and fun day!

See more of the Americana collection after the jump.

Just Life / kitchen tour

Finally found some time the other day to take some photos of our little kitchen, there's not usually enough light in there to take a good photo, but I tried. It's a pretty tiny space, and when we moved in there was almost no counter space once we plugged in the microwave, toaster, and coffee pot. So we went out to ikea and bought a bedroom dresser to add a nice little coffee station, and we installed an old working bench slab of wood to create a nice eating space since a table didn't really fit. Also trying to find some inexpensive bar stools that are more like 30" these are only 24" and they are just a little too short (similar style though, any suggestions?!). Please if you have any tips on making a small kitchen work leave a comment let me know! Cooking with 2 people in the kitchen at the same time is nearly impossible! 

I can't wait to start collecting pretty receipe books to add to this shelf, cooking my way though Feast right now. We also painted this old telephone nook with chalk board paint to write lists or doodle on. When we first moved in I covered the glass cabinets with patterned paper from the inside, I thought we needed the extra storage space, but I thought it was a shame to cover up such a pretty arie space, so I filled glass jars with the essentials and called it good. More photos after the jump.
