Vintage and Art at Golden State Goods

Just stopped by Golden State Goods to say hi and to check out Ty Williams art. They did such a cute job with the re-opening of the store. You should stop by if you're still trying to find last minute Christmas gifts. They have vintage clothes, shoes, accessories and other artsy things.

Chocolate Candy Cane Cookies

There was so much going on this past week with my birthday and with all the holiday festivities. It's been a bit crazy. Last night we were invited to a holiday party so after reading Eastside Food Bites I was inspired to make my own version of the chocolate candy cane cookie. Of course, soon after starting I realized once again that I am not a baker. Here's the outcome after burning 2 batches of cookies (I blame the stove!):

Holiday Gift Tags

Wow, can't believe it's December already. This year flew by! With Christmas right around the corner we designed some holiday gift tags for you. Take a look here. We bought some crafts from Michael's and dug out some of the leftover supplies from the wedding and wrapped presents! As you can see we went a little crazy but it was a lot of fun!

Handcrafted Jyumoku Bags

I love these Jyumoku bags. They are so awesome! Each bag is crafted from salvaged vintage goods which are then recycled. From this, re-purposed materials are given new life once again. Any fabric discoloration and wear are results from many years of use and natural aging. These details are then carefully re-purposed into every construction making each item upon itself unique, like in nature. Check out Jyumoku.
