Curating a Gallery Wall with Threadless


















































Recently I partnered with Threadless to create a unique gallery wall. If you're not familiar with Threadless, they are Chicago-based apparel company featuring the designs of independent artists. Their passion is helping art unknowns become art totally-knowns- I love that! Recently Threadless decided to go beyond t-shirts and sweatshirts to offer a full line of  homegoods, including wall art, pillows, duvet covers, and rugs!

I picked out a few of my favorite prints and shared some fail proof tips on how to create the perfect gallery wall (not always the easiest feat!) You can read the full feature over on the Threadless blog!

Inspired // the Nursery















































With my due date looming just a couple months away, I've caught the nesting bug big time. I'm just beginning to put some serious thought into the nursery. So far we have purchased and put together a crib (aka the cat's new favorite napping spot- should probably break her of that habit soon!) but otherwise the room is looking pretty naked! Although we don't plan on staying in our apartment for the long haul, I want to pick lovely and functional pieces that we can grow and move with. On my wish list...plenty of plants, fiber art wall hangings, tons of storage in pretty prayer baskets, a fun and brightly patterned rug, a cozy glider to cuddle up in, and a sweet and simple mobile to hang above Moon Pie's little head.

My dream nursery style could best be described as luxe modern boho. Is that a thing? Anyway, check out some of my favorite pieces below!

PLANT/GROW: a Plant Swap with Mandy Lancia

























My love of house plants runs deep. Admittedly, I've slaughtered my fair share from overwatering or under sunning- but with time my black thumb has grown much greener and now it sometimes feels a bit like my apartment is slowly turning into a urban jungle.
It's always exciting to meet a fellow crazy plant lady, especially when they are darling souls like local creative, Mandy Lancia. Together we dreamed up a way to share our greenhouse obsession with the masses by bringing together plant lovers for the most lovely Sunday afternoon we can think of... a plant swap!






Drawing on the traditions of an old school swap meet, this gathering is focused on community, creativity, and plants. Bring a little something green/take home a little something green! Not only can you pass on a previously loved plant or one that may not be thriving in your home, but you will walk away with a plant with a story behind it.

We want to make sure that all new plant friends stay healthy, so we'll have a repotting table where we will share tips and tricks to keep your house plants alive and kicking. You're encouraged to BYOV (bring your own vessel) and terra cotta pots will be available, but we're especially excited to offer one of a kind pottery from Portland ceramicist, Mimi Ceramics. Her pottery is just the dreamiest! Sweets and treats will be provided by Bang Bang Pie.
