Hello Fall

It’s finally my favorite time of year! I covet everything the Fall season brings: weather, fashion, foods, colorful foliage… Sadly, central California has ephemeral autumns and toilsome summers. {Boo…}

I think my heart would melt if it looked like this outside my window right now:

Now this is what I call tailgating {Husband might disagree}:

DIY: Beaded Necklace

I want to go home and make this simple DIY bead necklace, right now! It looks fairly easy to make, and the materials are simple enough: beads, thread. Good mix of muted colors/shapes yet bold enough to be considered a statement necklace.

Poster Cabaret

Husband + I enjoy a good concert poster {all 1.0 that we own}, and these {as well as eye-candy art prints}, by various artists, can be found on Poster Cabaret. Strong graphic design and wonderful use of colors + shapes gets me every time…
