My comfort zone has changed dramatically over the last seven years.

Go ahead. Steal my sources.

One of the best things about being in a creative field is the abundance of beauty that surrounds me every day.  Sometimes a photo of a dining table will inspire a color palette, or a pattern on a dress will bring to mind an idea for a floral installation.  However, when putting so much creativity out each day, sometimes it's nice to just refill the well of inspiration, so to speak.

Origin of the Champagne Coupe

The first evidence we have of the champagne coupe was in a painting by Jean-François de Tory in 1734. The painting depicts a feast, in which one person is popping the champagne while the rest wait with their coupes at the ready.

Moroccan Tea Ritual

Moroccan Tea Ritual

Although the Morrocan Tea ritual is a tradition practiced to conclude meal times, it is also be practiced in isolation at various times of day. Often before or after school or the wok day or when guests come to the house. It is an act of love, and hospitality, and a reminder to take a minute to unwind, and connect with those that you appreciate.

Champagne flutes are so special. They remind us of all the little moments that call for celebration, both big and small. A glass of champagne to celebrate a big promotion or the start of a new year, or a mimosa on Sunday morning just because. You choose.

How It's Made I Block Print

How It's Made I Block Print

Block print is a beautiful art form that is produced through the carving of wooden blocks. A seperate block is carved for each part of the pattern, meaning most textiles require the carving of various blocks to produce a finished block print. It is a trade that is typically passed down and learned from elder family members.
