Portraits of Women

I'm a proud member of the fairer sex; I feel so fortunate to be a woman. To me, all women have a certain mystique and I think this comes across most readily in portraiture. The best kind of artist can capture a woman with only a few lines of a pencil or strokes of a brush. From the greats to barely knowns, here are some of my most favorite portraits of women...

Couldn't you imagine a wall full of these? I'd die. All from my Pinterest board @here

Indigo @ UO

I hopped over to Urban Outfitters after hearing all the buzz over these Otomi-style pillow shams, and was pleasantly surprised by a lot of the other new arrivals too. I'm not the betting kind of girl, but if I was, I'd say indigo, batiks, tie dye, shibori and color fading are here to stay...at least for another season or two...

Behind the Persimmon Door

You can peep the entry...but I imagine the living room looks a little something like this...

Summer Entertaining 

As the 4th approaches, my thoughts always turn towards summer entertaining. Who doesn't love a well-designed fete! We threw our first bbq at the new house last week...the food {and company!} was magnifique...but in my opinion, the party decor and overall vibe were a little lacking. A little to inspire my dream bbq...

I'm seeing something like this coming to life at my house in the very near future...

Shine Vessels Needs Your Vote

Dear friends, remember @here back in March when I shared my guy's new business Shine Craft Vessel Co.? Well, we've been on a little whirlwind of a ride over here. He sold through the first batch of beer growlers within a week or so and since then, he can barely keep them in stock! 

He's been featured on some seriously amazing sites who have been so supportive and encouraging, which truly means the world to us. But perhaps the most exciting moment of all has been being selected as one of three national finalists in the Ledbury Launch Fund. Up for grabs is $25K in start up capital and a year of mentoring from the Ledbury leadership. 

Shine is the smallest and newest operation of all of the selected finalists, which keeps us humble and grateful for all the love. However, it also means, every bit of support counts! America will decide the winner of the Launch Fund, and this is where you come in! I would so greatly appreciate your support in casting a vote for Shine @here.

Please feel free to pass this along through all of your social channels and friends and family near and far. We've got {big} plans for Shine in the future and none of it would ever be possible without all of your good vibes and awesome support. 

Much love to you always xx K
