lovely pocket book

thank you lovely design for this great giveaway!
i am always reading her blog and love all the great products she sells on this site.

i can't wait to get my own pocket book in the mail with an "autograph" from her daughter!

i had a great time this weekend in iowa with my family. watching juha change into a person with personality and character is so exciting! here are a few pictures of the weekend.

we went to a hobby lobby and found these wooden letters on sale. so we took them home to paint and hang up...i think it looks lovely for something so cheap and simple!

my sister is an amazing cook. she made bibimbap (rice, sauted beef and carrots, lettuce, fried egg, cucumbers, and sweet/spicy red sauce to mix it all around) and odeng (fish cake) for lunch.


leaf studies

i stumbled upon some old art work tonight. these are from a color theory class from my junior year of college. one of the toughest classes ever but also one of the most rewarding... Castagnacci you are one bad ass teacher.



Queenswest Church held an art exhibition at the Cee Flat in Brooklyn this past Saturday. I couldn't make it but I showed a couple of pieces. I heard it was a fun event and hope it will become an annual thing!

Cape May Wedding

My old old friend Grace Kim married David Hong this weekend. What a beautiful simple wedding that was fun and filled with such joy! Thank you for letting me celebrate this great day with you guys!

the town of cape may is adorable. houses like this throughout the neighborhood.

we came across a ton of antique stores. this one was called olde lights and had some beautiful lamps and chandeliers.

before the ceremony, a view of southern mansion.

walking around i noticed this bird cage.

the entrance just blew me away.

after the ceremony the jug band started playing. they were so talented!

polaroid stations provided a ton of fun for us.

downstairs area for dancing and speeches. loved the blue and yellow color walls.

missed a photo opportunity of the first dance but this is when they dance with the family.

lastly just wanted to post a quick wedding card i made with the happy tape i got in the mail on friday. indeed it is well named because i was so truly happy using it!
