Madelaine Weinrib

I get a little daunted with a home that has too many rooms to get lost in, but there is one exception... One can never have enough rooms for Madelaine Weinrib rugs!

Spring has Sprung!

Bulbs, mini-sprouts, a patch of moss and bud vases come to mind when I think of the advent of Spring. These little jewels from Napa Style are simple ways to herald the warm sunshine weather!

Happy Cupcake Friday

This elegant cake by Etiquette of Chocolate is carrot on the inside with floating champagne bands and lace flowers. I just love the way the flowers drape each layer!

Spring Break Schedule for Shop Friends

***Hello All! We have been pretty busy with both small and very BIG "projects", one of which will be taking up my Spring schedule. We have so much fun with the Shop Friends blog that it will continue as always, but will be posting 3 times a week (M,W,F) instead of the usual 5. This will be for Spring and we'll be back for a full schedule in Summer.

Be sure to subscribe so you get all of the new installments! XOXO, Cat!***

Valerie Hammond

It would be an understatement to say we love paper creations at the studio. These works just make me drool. Gorgeous, gorgeous paper dresses by artist Valerie Hammond.

Flavor Paper

Love this witty take on shabby chic and toile. It would be great to line the laundry room where Rover sleeps with this pattern by Flavor Paper!

Shop Friends: Jane Ane Marie

Designer Jane Ane Marie caught my eye with her lovely designs! Just love how she integrates a little texture, shimmer, a coral or metallic jag here to create a sophisticated, girly ensemble. These are "date night" dresses to wear to that cozy little restaurant after the sun goes down.

Shop Friends: Raasta

Love, love, love this Spanish clothing line. That first dress makes me dizzy. These are from their '09 Spring/Summer collection which I think is so San Fran!

Paper Towel Tea Towel

One of the things we've done in the studio to be more eco-friendly is using cloth dish towels instead of paper towels. I think these tea towels made to look like lined sheet paper would be the perfect addition for the team!
