it’s my favorite … almanac industries clutch

almanac industries clutches | K Flick StudioI am pretty much in love with the new clutches from Almanac Industries, I mean, how could you not be? Screen printed, hand stitched leather, yes please, and this leather is going to darken and get richer over time like any good leather should. They are the perfect size to carry on their own or toss in a larger bag. These days I keep all of my items, wallet, phone, lip balm, letters I keep meaning to mail, in one small clutch. This way I can toss it into the baby bag in the morning before we head out for the day and all my items stay together. Then when I’m out on errands I just bring the clutch in with me and leave the big baby bag in the car. Or if I sneak away on the weekends I just grab the clutch and go. One of these is definitely going on my holiday wish list

it’s my birthday, almost

pancake cupcakes

So it’s my birthday month and I just revisited a post about pancake cupcakes that Courtney from A Little Glass Box made for her husband’s birthday this summer and it made me smile. She does such a wonderful job of celebrating the people she loves. Everyone should have someone like her in their lives. Who wouldn’t be super excited to have these at their party? Pair them with this chili bar, and a simple yet elegant table and you have yourself a perfect party for me!

a little soiree everyday

How was your weekend? I hope it was a good one. Our’s was filled with a trip to the pool, milkshakes for dinner, cleaning the basement, and goodwill. All in all relaxing and productive, a strange combination for sure.

I also took some time to add a new design to K Flick Studio’s Society 6 collection and I am so excited about it. Probably my favorite design thus far it’s like having a little party in your purse, or hand, or pocket, or wherever you keep your phone. It’s a little soiree everyday!
Soiree iPhone case | K Flick StudioThe design is available for the iPhone, Samsung Galaxy and iPad. You can also purchase a skin for your computer and greeting cards and wall art, it’s just a little crazy. I prefer to stick to the handheld devices, but hey, do what you want!

I hope you all have a great start to your week! Our little one is due on Friday so I will keep you posted! XO

getaway … antiquing in Fredrick, Maryland

As our due date is approaching I am trying to make more time for the husband and myself to do things that are nice to do. Not just projects that we need to do. Sure those projects need to get done, but the big stuff has been checked off. Now I am trying to focus on us as a couple and the freedom that we will not again have for quite some time. We plan on trying to keep our lives as close to what they are as possible, all current parents may laugh here, but know that a lot is going to change and that is much easier said than done.

A long time ago one of my friends posted a mouth-watering Instagram from a restaurant in Frederick, Maryland. Since then it has been on my places to go for the day, you know, when I actually remember that I have that list. We tried to make the trip a few weeks ago but it didn’t work out, and with limited weekends left I decided this was the weekend.

I started researching other things to do in Frederick but all that I came up with was Civil War related activities. Those we can definitely do when we have a child, so I said pass. Katie told me about an antiques sale that she was going to in that area and I said great! I am sure that there are a ton of things to do in Frederick that are not Civil War related, if you know of some please let me know. 

So off we went. I found some great things, but only came home with one item. A GIANT enamel tray. I have a thing for blue and white enamel, it could be a problem. I am trying to deal with it. The tray was just so big, and perfect, and I knew it would be great on our coffee table. I washed it and set it out last night. Perhaps it is a little larger than I thought. I’m trying to make it work…

And here are a few other things that caught my eye but I left for someone else, so generous I know.

Metal Basket Lights These vintage metal basket light looked so lovely hanging in the barn. They are not unusual to see now, but I liked that the sizes and styles of baskets were mixed for this display. Also a really quick and easy project to change a room, and when you are tired of it you have a great storage bin.

Paper Whale Tale BannerNot vintage to be sure, but this whale tail counting paper garland was adorable. Sadly I have no space or need for it.

Children's Metal Truck A few years ago when my friend Melissa got married she collected vintage metal trucks to use for her centerpieces. I was lucky enough to help arrange them with flowers and immediately decided that I needed trucks in my life too. I collected a few but have never really found a great place for them in our house. But now that we are going to have a little boy in the house it seems like I should start collecting again. Rust if okay for children right?

Industrial Cart TableLoved this industrial table. It would make a lovely coffee table, a bit high for the standard measurement ratio, but sometimes that’s fine.

Children's Wheelbarrow And then there was this amazing blue metal children’s wheelbarrow. I thought of ton’s of things to do with it, but alas in the end decided that I really didn’t need it. Boo.

Vintage Softballs There were also all these great softballs. I have been on the hunt for really good vintage baseballs for the nursery and when Katie told me about these I was really excited. On closer inspection I realized just how much larger a soft ball is than a baseball and decided to pass. Also, earlier in the week, when I was putting the finishing touches on the nursery a baseball fell and hit my foot, it hurt. Those things pack a punch when dropped. It was then that it began to dawn on me that they might not be the best thing in a child’s room. But to heck with that. They are there for now and I will remove them when the little guy becomes active. My mom rolls her eyes here. 

Vintage Lace DressThe last item that caught my attention was this lace dress. I am not usually a vintage clothing shopper but admire people who are. It is just not a talent that I have. Anyhoo, I saw this dress and thought that it would make a lovely wedding dress. Sure it would need some alterations, but I really think it could be something quite special.

Later this week I will share details of our meal, the whole reason we went to Frederick, and boy are they good.

Have a great day!

wear it … plum pretty sugar

Six more weeks until this little baby makes his appearance, or so we are hoping. Last weekend we traveled to St. Louis, where I am originally from, and were treated to another amazing baby shower. It was a bit of an adventure getting there, our original flight was canceled, at 11:45pm on Friday night, due to tornadoes. I should have known we were never going to fly out when I talked to my parents when we got to the airport and they were in the basement and the sirens were going off. So we flew out on Saturday. I went directly to the shower and freshened up there. It all worked out, but in my haste I forgot to take pictures, stinker.

Since we returned home I have been in full swing getting everything ready. Washing baby clothes, blankets, sterilizing bottles, and getting the few items that I forgot about like nail clippers and a thermometer. I have also been picking up last-minute items for myself like night gowns that are okay for my Dad to see me in… The one item that is on my want list, and not on my need list, is a robe from Plum Pretty Sugar.

Plum pretty sugar robeHow beautiful is that? So it might be a bridal line, but really, shouldn’t I feel just as beautiful and radiant as a bride after I have a baby? So I need this right… what do you think?

love it … summer style

It has already warmed up to the mid nineties in Baltimore, how about where you are? When it gets hot all I want to wear is a dress. Also, it makes getting ready a snap, and is an easy summer style to love. Apparently I am interested in blues, whites, and corals this season. How can you go wrong with that color palate?
