Address Files from Lovely Design

These beauties are available from Lovely Design, for a while. Sherilyn is about to have another child and may be closing down her on line shop according to her blog.

The address file is what first attracted me to her work, all these wonderful bits of paper put to use

I do not have one of these, but I do have the Pocket Book.

All these wonderful different types of paper. I write on some and paste things on others.

No Longer Available

What a wonderful calendar

pages that you can write notes on and revisit the following year

the lack of box materials may be why these are no longer available

just to good not to show...

this just might be the spark that inspires someone else!

made from vintage papers such as library cards, computer punch cards, card catalogs

Other items available from Single Chair at Etsy.

Industrial Modern

Home of Monica Keegan from Country Living

love all the different storage

metal, wood, plants

what would I put in here?

We bought the Pumpkin Bread from St. Rita Bakes for our sister-in-law. This will be her breakfast food before a day of teaching.

You too can order this delicious bread or the wonderful pound cakes from St. Rita.

Floral Ideas from Blomsterverkstad

love the peppers sticking out of the lemon

beautiful use of a variety of fruits and vegetables

 the idea would translate well for any season
(small vases with flowers, seasonal produce the length of the table)

the berries above the wreath are a wonderful idea and another use of colors and the seasons bounty

all the elements for decorating
