Via one of my favorite blogs, Inside Out, I learned today that 3 great designers are teaming up for a month long event called Pop Up Co Op. If I didn't live sooooo far away from Australia I would be there in a heartbeat. Find out more info here and here.
This next stop on the Les Bois Tuesday train is the cute kids shop, Cassis. Located downtown Boise on Idaho St., Cassis began as a high decor shop and overtime developed into a child's boutique carrying brands likeRoom Seven,Baby LuLu and Positively Organic. Shop owner Molly Henggeler is a mom of 2 so she knows exactly what moms and children need concerning fashion, books and toys. This shop is full of eye candy, amazing fashion, quaint details and whimsical toys. Mom's, you will love everything about it. I want these Misha LuLu dresses for my daughter! Hand painted gift boxes make your Cassis gift look perfect. You can find local designer and artists sold at Cassis. I spy halle jean. You can find other brands such as Petunia Pickle Bottom, Hooter Hiders, Jack and Lily Shoes and Caldrea as well as many more!
The item leaning against the chair is the coolest Advent Calender that I have seen. ( I didnt write down the brand. Sorry.) Toys seem to be the main attraction during the holiday season. Store manager Marie Ewins told me that brands like Plan Toys and Haba fly off the shelves. All of them being safe and eco friendly. Stop by and say hello to Molly or Marie and take full advantage of the amazing items Cassis has to offer!! xx
Hello, this is Jeanette from the blog Fryd + Design making a visit while Kirsten is away. Kirsten asked me if I could make a post on my favorite fall decor, and of course. I´m so happy she asked!
For me the autumn is all about the light and colors, we have the most wonderful light here in Norway at this time of year. Let me show you,
I´m so exited and I hope you will like my pics for fall. I like to see my house as a blank canvas, mostly painted in white. That way I can bring in colors through pictures, pillows, flowers etc that I can easily change. Right now I love yellow and orange together with pink, I like warm colors when it´s getting colder outside. This time of year is also all about handiwork for me and at the time I´m all into crocheting. I love my small dolls and they keep popping up every were in the house. They are so easy to make if you know how to crochet, just use your imagination :)
I wish you all a happy day and I hope the wonderful autumn sun will shine on you!
Hi, I'm Ellie! I write a design blog called Mint, and also run a stationery shop called Hello Tenfold specializing in wedding stationery. Kirsten asked me here today to guest post, and I am excited to share 7 of my favorite fall decor items.
The first thing I have to have when the weather turns cold is a good bud vase (or five). Once the leaves turn brown and start to fall, having filled bud vases is an inexpensive pick-me-up. I have my eyes on these two frommudpuppy. I also like to bring in rich wood tones to make things really cozy. This teak & walnut Danish chair was recovered with burlap from a rice sack by Lets Rebuild , a company from my own town of Durham, NC. Some good candles are a necessity, and these maple log tea light holders add to the cozy factor. They're made by Robinson Greig on etsy. You might remember these beautiful, hand crocheted, felted bowls from last winter. I never bought any for myself, but I've still got them on my mind... made by Papaver Vert. I love switching out my spring & summer floral napkins for something like these handwoven checked ones. Made in Madison, WI by Jennifer Pellman of Plait. Designers Tina Lutz and Marcia Patmos created these chunky, knit pillow covers for West Elm. A couple of these and a good throw will make it hard to get up on cold mornings!
The last of my favorite fall decor items is one I have in my own home. Each year, my stepmom buys me the latest Wolf Creek calendar. Each month has a new piece of artwork that's always just right for the season. The October print is one of my favorites from '09!
Thanks for having me, Kirsten!
