Words can't describe Flower House Detroit and these photos can't do it justice, but it's a glimpse into the magic of the weekend. Lisa Waud of Pot & Box was the mastermind behind this wonderland of flowers in an abandoned house in Hamtramck. Florists from Michigan and across the country filled the rooms with american-grown fresh flowers and living plants. Now that the weekend is over, the house will be responsibly deconstructed and its materials repurposed. The land will be converted into a flower farm and design center. There's so much more to say, but you can read all that starting here.

It's here! My new illustrated calendar for 2016 is online and waiting for you. I'm really excited about this one. I probably think—and say—this every year, but I really do feel like I pushed myself design-wise on this one. I hope you enjoy!

The billboard is on I-94 near Chelsea, bout a mile before the Fletcher Road exit if you are traveling east, into Ann Arbor. It is on the north, or left, side of the highway.

DIY Street Fair! After missing last year's show, I'm super excited to jump back into craft shows this season with this awesome weekend of goodness. You know I love seeing the Ferndale community out in its best friendly fashion. This is one of my favorite weekends of the year! I'll have my 2016 calendars available, new prints and more! I'll be in my usual location at booth F44 right behind the WAB. See you there!

I'm reflecting on this time in part because I have been lucky enough to find a new camp tradition at Small Craft's Craft-a-way camp which happens this coming weekend in Waterloo State Park here in Michigan. Hooray! This will be my third year at Craft-A-Way camp and each time I am flooded with memories of my childhood camp experiences.
But really, Nyoda is in my thoughts these days because they suffered a great loss this spring when a fire wiped out four of the seven bungalows campers and counselors live in for the summer. In true Nyoda spirit, there has been an outpouring of support to get everything rebuilt and up and running for the 2015 camp season that starts July 5. They are almost there! If by chance you'd like to lend a hand — or send some dollars — the Give Forward campaign to rebuild is here.

In the late 1960s, my grandmother was the editor of Bride & Home magazine. This "Autumn Preview" issue from 1968 was saved for me by my mom. It featured photos of my parents' apartment in Manhattan. I love everything about this: From the stories highlighted on the cover, to the much hyped — and somewhat exaggerated — obsession by my parents of all things nautical in the article and apartment styling.
