We love our Farmhouse Fresh line and so excited one of our favorite products from him made The O List.  A scrumptious bottle of love for heels and toes. This divine honey-based moisture serum seals in moisture and brings rich color back to tired feet. It's been called the Instant Pedicure. Simply brush on and rub into feet for chalkless bliss - no more white ashy look! (We've been told it's fabulous on cracked knuckles too!) This golden jar is a true guilty pleasure from the first moment you let it breathe - fragranced with velvety cinnamon notes, sweet cloves and actual honey. The finest of moisturizing elements have been incorporated from genuine honey, and aloe leaf juice to pineapple and papaya fruit extracts. Honey Heel Glaze is ultra-smooth, non-greasy, and addictive in every way. Includes application brush in a darling carrying box to delight your gift recipients. 96.2% natural and like all FarmHouse Fresh products, Honey Heel Glaze is Paraben & Sulfate free.

Memorial Day Delight

Memorial Day marks the official start of picnic season, and we are ready! Our favorite trend in the paper world lends to our entire all-american inspiration board -- Gingham. From invites to outfits, the classic pattern is making it's way off the picnic table. Throw in some ice cream & hot dogs, and you've created the perfect gathering for friends and family.

Thank you to the men & women who gave the ultimate service to this country, allowing our freedoms of life, liberty & love to stand strong!

Art That Inspires

The most beautiful stationery is one that tells a story. Each design and typeface reflects the individuals. This can be a lofty goal to reach in the design world, but that is when everything you encounter becomes an inspiration. One of our favorite ways to stretch our creative minds is to look outside the world of paper. Below are a few of our favorite art pieces & artists that have inspired us to stretch our imaginations & talents beyond expectation. {click here to view more}

Beautiful Austin Wedding

I know this pretty much goes without saying, but there’s nothing quite like a bright, yellow hue to add the perfect dose of happy to your Big Day.  Not that this darling Austin duo needed it, mind you.  Their smiling faces are delivering enough happy to last a decade (literally), but prop their downright adorableness up against a sunshiny backdrop like this one planned to perfection by Pearl Events Austin and it’s like the best day ever with amazing blooms from Bouquet of Austin and one lovely image after another captured by Concept Photography

From the Bride… Initially, I was trying to find the right color for the wedding, and the color I kept coming back to was yellow, and BRIGHT yellow at that. I would describe it as “happy, sunshine yellow.”  Soon, though, I was figuring what color complements yellow, and then I kept thinking grey. Then, that soon molded the bright, sunshine yellow, to more of a deep, mustard yellow and thought it had such a rustic feel to it, so I started going down that route. I didn’t go completely rustic, but I did want some rustic flair to the wedding.  Even though it was a pain, the DIY was probably my favorite, such as the Photo Booth poster, the party favor tags, and escort cards. A lot of the guest said they appreciate all the personal touches we did.
