in the shop

just added a few more of matt's log dishes to the shop.

it begins

real wedding: sachiko and john

we created the flowers for s and j at the amazing carneros inn a few weeks ago. the weather was amazing and you can't go wrong at this location- it was a beautiful day! the couple live in japan so we figured everything out by email with lots of photo exchanges. the bride wanted elegant, but playful- incorporating lots of herbs and fruit along with succulents. we made the tables a mixture of white/green, yellow/green, and pink/orange/green. and yellow tree peonies just happened to be around so...

we're in the sf chronicle today in a great article about homemade activities to do around town this holiday season. we tried out our first bulb forcing activity earlier this week and it was super fun! another neighborhood goodie in the article is workshop- they have screenprinting, holiday cocktails, leather and feather jewelry, and one we're dying to try...heavy metal aerobics! photos by Carlos Avila Gonzalez of the chronicle.

calendar is here!!!

so excited to put our calendar in the shop- it came out great! we only made fifty so get em while they're hot. lots of people have asked for prints of our photos so we thought this would be a fun way to do it. it measures about 11 x 6 inches and each month is on a separate card. plus you get a bonus image of bernie on the front- that alone is worth a lot. get it in the small stump shop or on etsy or see it in person at prairie collective.
