the etsy office

it's almost a new year so, naturally, it's the perfect time to get organized! i am currently in the process of sorting, filing, stacking, and other such {boring} tasks, but the thought of having a clean + organized office space keeps me going. i also might purchase some new office supplies- you know, to get me inspired to work, work, work! here are some etsy offerings that would be perfect for my business ::

i'll be posting pics of my re-designed workspace soon!

french country christmas

a couple of weeks ago, i was browsing my favorite portland boutique, ink + peat, when i discovered "jeanne d'arc living" magazine. every page of this danish magazine is simply breathtaking- i think these images can attest. these in particular are from their christmas issue ::

it's a bit expensive but if you're looking for inspiration, it's better than most coffee-table books, in my opinion. the pages + pages of french country, shabby chic style is swoon-worthy, to say the least.

new dreamy photos

i had lots of fun giving away photos last month! the winner of the last giveaway is liz. and now i'd like to debut even more new photos, available right now in the dear machine shop!


i really love these photos- can you tell i've added a bit of a dreamy quality to my new prints? i definitely take my inspiration from vintage photographs- a little yellowed & overexposed. it's all done digitally for now, but i hope to experiment with actual vintage photography sometime soon. when i trust my skills enough to know i won't be wasting film. :)

more new photos soon!
