az architecture.





Ali has been posting about her trip to AZ and has mentioned a few architectural gems here like Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin West and the hip Hotel Valley Ho.

We decided to share this archive we found of Al Beadle's residential/commercial buildings. If you look hard enough, Arizona is cool.

This month's issue of Dwell is full of things we've been loving for a while now. Like Robin & Lucienne Day, and this phonofone from Science & Sons. It's 2 feet tall, ceramic, and capable of amplifying an iPod using nothing but the magic of acoustics. Neat.

painted love.



When we're not out on the town for lunch, we eat at this table. For V-Day, Raquel decided to paint ILOVEYOU in Helvetica on the white canvas. Looks perfect.

first cake



Here is my Addie clapping away at her first birthday cake. She did better than I could of ever hoped for at her first birthday party we had on Sunday - a house full of people and she had them all clapping along with her!

This little girl makes my heart absolutely burst. Every night when she falls asleep, I lie tucked beside her and listen to her little heart beating. And I find myself thanking her for coming to me. And praying that my marvelous luck will stay with us.

it's where we work.



Feather likes to hang out with us in the office. She also likes her LeCorbusier chaise lounge.

So we're at lunch the other day waiting for our food, flipping through the newspaper, and boom! there's the SeeSaw logo on our Heart Walk ad. We're hoping we're not the only ones who noticed it.

catch me if you can.



An old favorite: this title sequence.

just because...



...how can this not brighten your day?

for a first birthday



I got a chance to whip together these invitations for my little daughter Adelaide's first birthday party we will be having on Sunday. I designed them in Illustrator, printed them out on my desktop printer on some ribbed cardstock, then trimmed them and rounded the corners. It took under an hour to get them all designed, printed and ready. Since becoming a mom I've become slightly more efficient at things!



I've also been making up lots of bunting for the party which inspired the invitations. We've been hanging it up all around our home and I hope to make some more before sunday. I made the flags double-sided and stitched them all together along 1/2" double folded bias tape. My hope is that they will last throughout the years and we can hang them up for birthdays and other occasions. But to be honest I really like having them up regardless of the day!

p.s. the typefaces I used in this invitation are Cityof and Wendy.
