Marbled Books + Happy Weekend

It is probably a throwback from my bookbinding days but I LOVE marbled paper. It is gorgeous and handmade and exquisite. So it only makes sense that love the old/new books Laura has recovered and is selling in her Neapolitan store.

I just finished a project with marbled paper that I can’t wait to share next week. I hope everyone has a great weekend.

Happy Weekend

I spent a good hour yesterday looking up airfares from Paris to different countries: (Copenhagen $120, Morocco $150, woohoo!) I have lots of plans to travel when we move to France because everything is so close. Anyone been anywhere off the beaten path that you loved? I like small non-touristy villages or cities with great vintage shopping I also love things like cool community events like a sky lantern festival (I heard there is one in Portugal.).

Also, has anyone ever had a large shipping crate shipped to the US before? I would love to bring home some of the furniture I find (and maybe a little Vespa and sidecar.) I’m curious as to cost and who to use.

Happy Halloween

I don’t usually blog on the weekend but I wanted to get a Halloween post up. I hope everyone has a happy Halloween! We have four Halloween parties to go to this weekend. Today we dressed up as lumberjacks and we’re dressing tomorrow as French burglars. Anyone have any good costumes this year?

Here are my Babble.com posts for this week.

Monday Monday

We had such a great weekend. It was rainy so for the most part we stayed indoors and worked on projects although we did get away for a bit at a fun Lobster bake at a friend’s house in Santa Cruz. Yum. Lobster.

I love Shanna Murray’s decals.

Greetings from Disneyland + Happy Weekend

I am on vacation at Disneyland with family and we are having an amazing time. We used to go to Disneyland a lot when we were kids so it feels like a rite of passage to take my own kids. Also, my in-laws are with us so Paul and I have had plenty of time to roam the park without kids (can we talk about how the single-rider passes are SO AWESOME, no lines!) Hope you have a great weekend. I’ll be back on Monday with an exciting announcement.
