On the Radar


It was a very rainy weekend here on the west coast which kept me inside and thinking about the holidays ahead.  I’ve been loving all the chalkboard-inspired holiday items I’ve been seeing popping up, from greeting cards to gift wrap – and I thought I was over ombre but then those freshly made pink ones from Ship & Shape popped into my inbox and I was completely re-inspired.  What are you inspired by this season, would love to hear.
