We recently had a little party here at the studio for Aimee who will be traveling and getting married next week. Anytime there is a reason to celebrate, we all pull in and put together quite a nice party with lots of tasty treats. Since I like to
As all the fall catalogs are starting to fill up my mailbox I am noticing a great range of oversized plaid prints coming to market. As much as I despise the cold days that are ahead I am not hating the thought of wearing one of these cute plaid pieces. I am also quite sure I can find the perfect spot for this Designers Guild chair! Just loving it!
