Grey Stag Tea Towel now available

My grey stag deer tea towel is now available at my new etsy shop TangerineHome This handmade tea towel is screenprinted by me onto a grey 100% linen using water based non-toxic white ink. Linen is a natural material made from the fibers of the flax plant. It is very absorbent and gets softer and softer with each washing, perfect for drying hands or the dishes!

Tea towel features a 100% cotton twill loop on the backside for easy hanging. It is pre-washed and pre-shrunk.

I will have more colors coming soon!

Sneak Peek

So as I've mentioned before I've been hard at work on a new collection for my etsy shop and I'm going to be moving everything plus my new collection to my new shop TangerineHome Currently I'm working on a series of 100% linen tea/hand towels which are screenprinted with a water based non-toxic ink. I'm super excited about these! The linen is soft, mostly environmentally friendly since linen is made from the flax plant and is super absorbent! Here is a sneak peek of one of those new tea towels!

Like Tangerine on Facebook and be one of the first to know when this towel along with several other new items will be available in my new Etsy shop! There will soon be a new blog as well.

Big Changes Coming!

I've been hard at work on new designs for my Etsy shop! I've also decided that with these new designs is going to come a whole new name, look, website and shop! I want the new branding to represent my modern approach to home décor. So in a few weeks I will be unveiling my new name and website, I'm pretty excited about it! I will be introducing environmentally friendly items into my shop, using organic materials and water based eco friendly inks, all handmade in my San Diego, CA studio. I can't wait to share it all with you! Stay tuned!

Light Fixtures

The past couple of weeks we have been working on renovating our laundry room. Currently there is just a bare bulb for a ceiling light so I've been in search of a stylish period style light fixture that will look appropriate in our 1940 cottage. After a little searching around on the trusty internet I came across this fantastic website, Schoolhouse Electric! Not only is their website super cute, clean and easy to use, it's filled with some pretty great light fixtures! I have my eye on several of them because we need new light fixtures in just about every room as well as some new outdoor light fixtures. Here are just a few of my favorites:

For our laundry room and hallway I really like some of these classic styles:

Two of these would be really cute on the wall in our restroom, one on each side of the vanity mirror:

Here are a few others I really love:

How cool is this one below?

They also have a great selection of light bulbs including the classic Edison bulbs which have recently been gaining popularity once again.

Their website is filled with so many cute light fixtures that would work great in just about any period style home, barnyard style or even modern home! I think I will definetely be purchasing a few light fixtures from them but with so many great options the hard part is choosing which ones!
