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!

New exciting things coming!

So it's be awhile since my last post but it's not because I'm doing nothing it's actually quite the opposite! I'm in the process of getting all set up so I can start screenprinting and I have all sorts of new home accessory products coming to my Etsy shop! It's still going to be several  more weeks before this happens but I'm very excited about it!

We have also been working on our laundry room makeover which I hope to have completed in the next couple of weeks so there will be photos up soon! It's about 75% complete, we just have some cabinets to paint, need to find a new light fixture and a few other things before it's completed. Since I don't want to post without a photo here is a photo of my red tubes pillow cover.
