Honoring Motherhood

Motherhood can hardly be described as something simple, it's complex, like a dynamic character from a great piece of literature. Contrastingly it's also something static and everlasting. Motherhood is carried into the final days of one's life; remembering our mothers while clenching the hands of our children. Here we have foraged a collection that brings honor to a handful of motherly makers. Happy Mother's Day. 

Row 1:: Beach Blues (Painted Jars) Madera Del Mar (Driftwood Mirror) Leialala (Macrame) Native Maps (Dallas Map) 

Row 2:: Mercy Ink (T Shirt) Wise Oils Company (Shea Butter) Wayfaren (Travel Journal) Axel Co (Bud Vase)

Row 3: Mama Bleu Designs (Pillow) The Hipster Housewife (Salt & Light Print) Jill Makes (Tassel Necklace) Dunn Rustic Designs (Wooden Tray)

La Primavera

A gorgeous time of year is approaching, and the most exciting thing about a spring in Texas is the bluebonnet bloom! They are such unique beauties, and they only last a few weeks once they pop up out of the ground. Here is a collection to surely inspire your angst for spring!

Vintage Modern Eclectic

Is this title a bit oxymoronic?  We promise you that this aesthetic exists in every home, because we all carry pieces of tangible history with us, even if it's just one torn photograph, or your grandmother's encyclopedia collection. Here is a collection of both vintage and modern pieces, sprinkled with a few eclectic treasures (like hedgehogs). Most of these goodies have been sitting in our favorites for many months, and some for years, and we love them all. Which is your favorite?

Nostalgia

I typed in the word "nostalgia" while searching through Pinterest today, I was instantly smiling. Images of Judy Blume books, TV dinners, Fruit Stripes gum, Lite Brights, plastic barettes and Clearly Canadian. It was as if Pinterest knew my age...

This collection evokes a nostalgia within, but not one that brings me to a former time, rather a time I never knew. There is a mystery here, I wonder if these times were better, if conversation was deeper, if life was lived slower...
