Happy Spring and Happy Easter!
Last weekend, I spent a couple of hours hanging out with these cuties at the Milk and Honey Farm. I love love visiting Milk and Honey, it is a vintage-loving girls dream. Immediately when I walk into their barn I have a massive case of ADD.
What is the Milk and Honey Farm you ask? It is namesake of the homestead of Jennifer Housh and her family. The lovely location is also the home to an impressive collection of vintage items. Jennifer’s business Events by Milk and Honey Farm does vintage styling, wedding and event rentals, and photo shoots.
Together, Jennifer, her daughter Chloe and I put together this sweet and simple shoot. I found myself very tickled looking at these photographs and missing having animals a lot!
As a kid, I grew up with lots of little (and some bigger) critters and I always looked forward to this time of year when my ducks and chickens would have babies.
For sometime now I have wanted to clean out our garage and fix up some furniture to share with TSS readers, as well as make/sell a few of my handcrafted treasures. Finally, I am starting to do it. I will be selling furniture pieces now and then (fixed up by yours truly) and custom cake toppers and other random awesome things.
Up first is this sweet wood chair. She would make a perfect companion by your bed to place your book and reading glasses or maybe for that random corner in your kitchen, or creating a lovely vignette for your upcoming wedding.
It’s sturdy, wood, spindle style, and my favorite shade of soft turquoise with a bit of shabbiness to it. For 40 dollars.
Please send me an email if you are interested in this chair. I can deliver with a reasonable request
I am just a tad sad to see her go, but know she will be making a new home quite lovely.
Currently, I am working on a fun design project for Oliver and Michele, the client has a concept that really celebrates handmade and local goods. Inspired, I thought I would share just a few local talented craftsman in my neck of the woods.
Yarn Bomb Antlers, I discovered them via Instagram (gotta love modern technology) I love the juxtaposition of something rustic like antlers and playful with colorful, soft yarn.
Addesso, is a beautiful shop in Santa Barbara that has a collection of jewelry, decor, and even vintage.
Dew Wats Rt, Andrew and I went to college together and he is just a kind and darling soul that makes awesome wallets as well as men’s/women’s bow ties.
