#1. penelope is getting cuter and sweeter everytime i see her! she's so smiley and fun to play with now. she laughs at everything and has one tooth! and she has itty bitty curls starting to happen on her little head.... i can't even describe how much i love her. it hurts my heart. ♥
(she's fixing her hair in this photo..... ha!)
#2. The Zac Posen for Target stuff is SO cute! I tried on this dress with the bow. It's even so much prettier in real life. I was in between sizes and so I didn't purchase one, but i still though it was 'blog worthy' incase any of you are shopping for something pretty to an occasion. Swoon!
i'm spending the rest of my evening updating the RVA site (the update will go live tomorrow evening at 9pm CST). You want to see another sneak peek? Well, ok.... since you asked. ;)
(handmade, vintage and original art in this update... hooray! plus a couple more surprises... i'll show you tomorrow.) XO. elsie
i found this table for my studio this week (i moved my yellow formica table to my new kitchen). i love this new table so much. the floral seats stole my heart. i'll post real photos soon, these are just from my phone.
and here are a few peeks at new paintings! :) Elsie
lately, i've been nesting in my new home... and i'm not the only one! here's a blog post inspired by spring cleaning, decorating and all things housewife related! the photos above are by sherri dupree and are completely magical. don't you agree?
9. courtney's cute little green house. i want one too!
10. and these beautiful lawn chairs, which i would love-love-love to own. seen on kaylah's blog, via seahoney.
this week i am moving my studio (from my previous loft to downstairs behind the RVA store-- even though i am closing the store on May 10th, i am still officing there for most of the summer because of Jeremy's recording studio... so that's exciting.) PLEASE NOTE: my local store is closing for relocation & restructuring. We are expanding & making it cuter than ever, and these things take time. We are still shopping location and I will fill you in on details after we've made our final decisions. It will most likely re-open in Spring of 2011. I just want you to know that the changes going on are %100 positive and so exciting! This summer the RVA online store is expanding more than ever before... i really can't wait to give the online store the attention it deserves for a season. :)
i CAN'T WAIT to get my studio unpacked and back to normal daily use! i'm also starting a new class. so most of my week will be spent like that! I'm looking forward to it and i'll be here with probably a million-or-so more posts to keep you company with. LOVES, elsie
