A Hodgepodge Post For Friday

I'm a lucky lucky and spoiled girl...

See Exhibit A: Crazy gorgeous flowers from my friend Alesya (you knoooow, the designer behind Aleysa bags!). She has a baby due real soon... Can't wait to squeeze him (or her).


Exhibit B: Crazy gorgeous necklace from my dear friend Gaby (you knoooow, the girl behind Vault Files blog). Such a fun surprise in my day this week.


Here are just a few more pretties from her shop... She's good ya'll. Perfect Mother's Day prezzies. I also have those yellow earrings, love them.


Exhibit C: Ann Marie Cale designed this Chassity Necklace inspired by me. I feel quite special, I must say. So gorgeous isn't it? And even more exciting- she wants to design a dress for me to wear to an upcoming event (multi-talented girl)! More on that dress soon.


And Exhibit D: All of you! Thank you so much for the encouragement and supportive words this week on my artwork. Your support means the world. Both paintings sold fast (to an awesome reader and to a certain badass designer), there were a lot of emails about upcoming work and commissions, and I discovered this gem of a pin...

And then there was this tweet the next day...


Goosebumps for sure to see Southern Living Magazine have such sweet things to say. They're pretty major. Kisses to all of you! I'm a lucky little blogger indeed.

You know what else is awesome, that Rikshaw Design is coming to Charleston! I've been following Catherine's blog and designs for a few years now and I'm stoked to see her goodies at one of my favorite local shops, Novel.
Finally, I'm off to Indiana right now for a weekend trip with my hometown girls. It's been way too long. And I won't lie, I'm really looking forward to a quiet flight with a good book...



And pssst: if you're in Charleston you should stop by the book signing at Hampden...

Happy Weekend, Everyone! xoxo
