Mai Autumn

Hello lovely readers! I just wanted to drop in after this long absence to direct you over to my personal blog, Mai Autumn. There has been a lot going on in my little world (if you've been over to the shop, you will see lots of changes there too!), and I have decided it may be time to bid this blog farewell. Although, I am still constantly finding inspiration while I'm perusing the internet all day, so you can find some of my discoveries over on Pinterest, as well as on the Mai Autumn blog, from time to time.

I have had so much fun sharing lovely finds with you all! I look forward to seeing you over at Mai Autumn! (I can't wait for you to see what exciting things I have in store!)


Thank you for reading!

Imaginary Vacation - Photography

Alright, so it's cold. I'm over it. I need to take myself on an imaginary tropical vacation this week, and I'm taking you all with me! To kick us off, here's some beautiful (and warm looking) photography! (above from Taken by Storm Photography)(p.s. Taken by Storm has a little contest going on until February 1st - Sarah will be giving away 2 8x10 prints of her "La Amore" print, just in time for Valentine's day! To enter, simply favorite (heart) her shop on your Etsy account! The winners will be announced on February 1st on her blog!)

Stay tuned for more destination themed posts to warm you up, all week! :)

Found - Color Collective

When you're ready to get creative, do you ever need a little push in the right direction, color-wise? If you're a maker of any sort, you may get stuck when it comes to your color palette now and then. Color Collective to the rescue! This fabulous blog has put together such an amazing selection of inspiring images! And not only are there oodles of lovely visuals, but graphic designer Lauren Willhite also pulls the color palette of each image and sums it up nicely below each photo. After stumbling upon Color Collective via Kiki & Polly, I have to say, this is going to be a regular haunt for me from now on!

Hope you all have an amazing weekend!

Daily Inspiration

Indie Business Feature - The Wild Unknown

I'm so in love with everything from The Wild Unknown! I came across this beautiful company last year, and they just keep getting better and better! All of their designs evoke a feeling of mystery and folksy-ness that I just adore. Check out their website to shop or head on over to their facebook page to keep up to date on their latest happenings.

The Wild Unknown is an independent and family-run business specializing in handmade objects. The distinctive illustrative style of the prints and calendars is the work of Kim Krans, a multi-faceted visual artist, musician, and connoisseur of all hand made things. In 2006 Kim began gifting her calendars to a few friends, and The Wild Unknown has been growing steadily since. Recently, her husband Jonny Ollsin joined The Wild Unknown as the positive-vibes coordinator and web designer. Seeing as though the couple’s creative endeavors include everything from playing music to building a cabin together, The Wild Unknown has become yet another extension of their aesthetics and values.
In 2009, Kim's mom (and expert stained glass artisan) Gaynelle Oslund joined The Wild Unknown's team. She now produces the amazing prisms on the site.


Our work is inspired by summers spent in the Catskill Mountains and
on the shores of Lake Superior. We hope The Wild Unknown items bring you moments of solitude and wonder, wherever you are.

Feather Your Nest - Vintage Style

With more snow coming to my area, I'll probably be stuck inside for at least 24 hours. I'm planning on using that extra time to organize my space a little! Here are some lovely vintage (or vintage inspired) pieces I have my eye on to spruce up my apartment. (above from ethanollie + zinnia cottage)

Off I go to settle in for some snow watching with my hot tea and a good book! Stay warm out there!
