hello + little winter

little winter

hi friends!  sorry I haven’t posted anything this yet week, I’ve been a bit under the weather.  seems I’ve caught a little bug!  boo!

anyway, I wanted to drop in and say hello.  Little Winter was a blast.  Abby & Chelsea did a truly amazing job with everything.  the set up was perfect!!  thanks so much to everyone who came out and introduced themselves!  you guys are amazing.

for those of you who couldn’t make it, be sure to watch this pretty video by Anja and pretend you were there for just a minute.  {that’s our Imagination poster in the window at the beginning of the video!}

you can view more photos from Little Winter right here on the Little Winter flickr stream.

chat with you soon friends!

I’m off to get ready:
for Little Winter!  naturally, I always leave the little things to the last minute, so I’ve got things to finish up.  hopefully you’ll make it tonight to the meet and greet and then tomorrow or Sunday to the market!!

have a great weekend my friends!!!

{p.s. last friday, October 29, marked 4 years of blogging here on Unruly Things.  4 years!!!  I can’t believe it.  perhaps I’m in need of a little party!}

{inspiration for my little winter set up gathered from mossière}



flora & fauna of the pacific northwest

mossiere calendar

I’m SO so pleased to share our 2011 calendar with you today, Flora & Fauna of the Pacific Northwest.  during my three years living in Oregon, I’ve truly grown to love the PNW and all it’s beauty.  more than ever, I’ve felt like I really appreciate nature and all of it’s magic, so this year, I decided to share my love for the PNW with you.

our calendar is a large silkscreened poster sized calendar that is designed to be trimmed into a square print to be framed once the year is over.  it is filled with specimen illustrations commonly found in the Pacific Northwest, combined with the gorgeous calligraphy of my friend, Kathryn Murray.

Mossière is finally live!  we’ve got more copies of our Imagination Poster and a variety of letterpressed specimen prints.  we’ll have more things arriving over the next few weeks, so stay tuned via our facebook page!

and as always, thank you SO much for your support friends!!!  it means the world to me.  :)
