handmade: maddy nash 06.08.2012

hey everyone! happy friday to you all! today we’re excited to share Maddy Nash with you! Isn’t this clutch pure fun? So Maddy Nash is a new, Kansas City-based company that makes personalized clutch purses! Each one is then carefully handmade by Charity, the creator of Maddy Nash! The best part is that you can sort of build your own purse by picking fabric patterns and inside colors, AND, if you so desire, put anything you want on the label….as you can see, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to have a little fun when it came to the custom label!!

If you have a favorite fabric, or even a family heirloom piece that you would like to give a new life, Maddy Nash will even make a purse from your own fabric!

Now go on, build your own :)

What we’re hearting 06.07.2012

Just a few random tidbits on our minds of late: Jess LC’s darling new totes in collaboration with Ann Shen. Love! A couple of our faves over at in the wall art dept.: Highway Wildflowers and Love Builds, and cutie patootie Uma flats from Rebecca Minkoff.

on my mind: a day in the mountains 06.06.2012

As Morgan said, summer vacation and getting away from our hectic schedules is front of mind for both of us, and in my case it will be a reality before long. We aren’t hitting the beach though; we’re heading to the mountains. So, I thought I’d share my wishlist for the trip. The only thing that didn’t make the cut here is a hiking backpack/ baby carrier. I’m not sure which one to get for toting around our guy on our (not-so-challenging) hikes.

    I was just asking my family yesterday if they wanted to meet for a mountain vacation next month! I hope it works out – I could use a relaxing vacation, too! Enjoy yours!

on my mind: a day at the beach 06.05.2012

It is getting hot quickly and that means I’ve got a summer vacation on the mind! Carrie and I are swamped with work and follow-up from our big trade show, so I am just daydreaming about the perfect day and the picture isn’t complete without good book and of course, the beach! I stumbled upon the “swim & beach” shop at echo and that was the start of making this vision complete!
