one fine dae: polka dot love

I'm coveting these polka dotted finds lately: birthday card, serving bowl, washi tape, and pillowcase.

my summer soundtrack

/ Fri, October 11, 2013

I've seen the world
Done it all
Had my cake now
Diamonds, brilliant
In Bel Air now
Hot summer nights, mid July
When you and I were forever wild
The crazy days, city lights
The way you'd play with me like a child

Will you still love me
When I'm no longer young and beautiful?
Will you still love me
When I got nothing but my aching soul?
I know you will, I know you will
I know that you will
Will you still love me when I'm no longer beautiful?

— "Young and Beautiful", Lana Del Rey

. . . . .

Lana Del Rey was on constant repeat for me this summer, and it all started after I heard "Young and Beautiful" on The Great Gatsby soundtrack. Her voice and music sound so nostalgic. They remind me of my summers spent growing up in southern California, even if I don't relate to any of her lyrics. Ha.

Happy weekend lovelies!

twenty fourteen, the monthly planner

one fine dae: 2014 planner

For years, I've wanted to offer a monthly planner in my shop. Timing was never right, however, for me to make it available. But this year, I'm finally ahead of schedule and carrying a limited supply on Etsy.

The planner is hardback, wire-o bound, and uses premium 100% recycled paper. Slightly textured and so soft. The covers are wrapped in kraft paper. I love this stuff. It's super durable and the texture helps to camouflage any marks and scratches from daily use. Plus, it's a classic!

The book is split into two halves using shimmery cardstock as dividers. The first half is the calendar. It includes 2 yearly views and 12 monthly views with plenty of writing space. This was a must for me when I started designing, considering most planners never really give you enough room inside the boxes. (A major pet peeve!)

The second half includes 50 blank pages for writing...or whatever you want. The last few pages are perforated into fours. You know, for those times when you need to jot down a quick note and rip out but don't want to waste a whole piece of paper? Yep, got it covered.

There's also an inside front pocket to keep small, loose papers, and a black satin ribbon to mark your place.

All text and graphics are printed in-house on an inkjet printer, and handmade with care. It comes neatly packaged in a clear cello bag and wrapped in kraft paper. Ready to use or give as a gift.

Despite all the smart phones and cool apps out there to help us stay organized, I'm still very much old-school and will always love using a paper planner. If you're interested, you can get one here.

Really loving some things over at Alder & Co. The soap packaging is just perfect!

at the intersection of summer and fall

It's extra sunny today, so I thought I would pull out the old work horse and shoot some scenes of fall around my house. The sun and leftover morning dew almost look like it's still summer to me. But some of the trees around the neighborhood really says otherwise.

Happy Friday and enjoy the weekend!
