I am so in love! Janet Hill Studio is such a great find that you wont want to miss. You can find Hill’s beautiful paintings and prints on her etsy site.  I hope you fall in love too.



You are you going to love this beautiful line of recycled paper products from designer Fiona Richards. She gets inspiration from  memories of her grandparents world travels, and her own.  Cartolina is charming and clever, you’ll become as obsessed as me in no time!

Cartolina also has a beautiful app for smart phones. It includes a calendar and 8 beautiful designs ready to text or e-mail. I downloaded mine over the weekend!

My husband, Brian Douglas Phillips, is a musician/producer and spent last weekend working on a new album with some good friends of ours, The Reliques. They were at Pozo Hondo Studios in Round Top, Texas. The studio is styled so well … you don’t want to miss these dreamy shots:

If you don’t know about The Reliques, you need to check them out. They have a new EP coming out soon that you wont want to miss!

Back to School Etsy Plaid

I have always loved plaid. As a girl I loved dreaming that the first day of school would be filled with plaid skirts, apples and falling leaves. Unfortunately living in Texas and starting school around the middle of August meant shorts and tank tops were the dress code.

Since so much of America is enjoying fall weather, I thought I’d dream a little and share some great plaid finds!
