Emmadime Knitted Lookbook + Video

It’s impossible not to be inspired by fashion as it so often influences what goes on in world of decorating. I found a very sweet lookbook for Emmadime Knitted from talented blogger, knitter and graphic designer Emma while browsing around today. Care to take a little peek?

I really like these photographs that Matthew Moore took, don’t you? (UPDATE 1/24: Emma Robertson wrote today to tell me these photos are from Shaun Menary not Matthew Moore. My apologies.) The mood is very sweet and all lovely dovey like. :) Emma Robertson is from Dallas and in addition to her many projects, she pulled together a sweet video that made me smile…

I find the process from the giggling to the planning, making, producing, all of it … Well, it’s really the best part of work sometimes don’t you think?

Quotes Can Be Nice

I love quotes, don’t you? I find quick bites of positivity or quirk a bit uplifting — even the tongue in cheek quotes are fun because they often say what many of us lack the courage to. This is one I particular like this week because it’s so true, right!?  I thought I’d share some quotes that I’ve been collecting over the past few weeks though I have tons more pinned here although some of those are definitely cheeky and not so G rated so viewer beware! These below are tame and good thoughts so enjoy them today as you go about your business…

The Styled Project

I recently heard from Victoria Hudgins who wrote in to tell me about a bi-weekly project that she has initiated in order to combine her passion for blogging and her love for magazines into one abbreviated, curated place called Styled.

Styled

Styled is an e-mag delivered every two weeks and each article in the magazine can also be found as a blog post by following the link in the magazine so it can be easily shared with others in blog form, too. She even produced a sweet little video conveying how both magazines and blogs can work together.

Styled magazine will feature new product guides, blogger interviews, party tips and more. All the best, Victoria!

It was so nice to see Tina’s Copenhagen apartment and her gorgeous Moroccan wedding blanket on her bed that I suspect she got while living in Morocco. Pretty!
