My friend Amanda is visiting from Los Angeles before she continues on to New York for work. Amanda is fantastically fun, she always has a wonderful attitude and uplifting outlook, and she has fabulous style. I love our visits! To see some of Amanda's fantastic fashion adventures around the globe, visit her blog. Here is a silly picture of the three of us.
Ooh, these are my new hand painted purple glasses from SEE. They are made in Israel and are by far the most fun glasses I have owned to date. Also I have on my new favorite dress. It's by Rebe and I will have some for sale in the shop come September.

Nice drawings and sculpture. Considered color and shapes rolled into sweet relationships. The top sweet reminds me of drawings I make.

I stumbled upon some inspiring projects and materials that got me thinking of wonderful things to do with children of all ages. I sometimes think about becoming a teacher of young children, it seems like it would be a very rewarding and fun job. The top image is a drawn pillow from Fine Little Day, middle image of the masks are from Mieke Willem's blog and the other two images are from T-A-K.
I also like this photograph in thinking about children, costumes, and play. Which is funny because I was always such an embarrassed child that I dreaded being in any sort of production.

After our lovely visit to San Francisco, mom and I drove home to Los Angeles. I had such a nice week visiting with my family before returning home to Baltimore. We ate at Dough Boys, one of our favorite restaurants. They have such delicious food and large portions that are perfect for sharing. Mom and I painted nails, we all played a game of Catan, and mom made delicious meals, all of which I enjoyed.
My last weekend there, I spent Saturday at the Los Angeles Renegade Craft Fair. It was very hot that day and not quite as many people were out and about, but it was still nice to spend time together.

Cotton Sheep, in San Francisco, is one of my very favorite shops. The shop is simple and clean with beautiful goods from Japan laid out on white shelves. Whenever I visit here, I am very inspired to have my own brick and mortar shop. Unfortunately, when we stopped by this visit they were closed, but even peeking through the windows was wonderful.

Whenever we go up north for a visit or to do a show, we stay with our good friends Peter and Elise in San Jose, California. Peter and Elise have one of my favorite homes. It is welcoming, cozy and beautiful. I love our visits there! Elise is a chef and makes the most delicious food and they have the sweetest little dog that looks more like a sheep than a dog.
