Back to School | Classic Home Collection Preview #2

We are officially here, the first day of Kindergarten!  She was beyond excited to start this new adventure - even ready to go to sleep early last night so it would get here faster (which never happens for our night owl).  I'm counting down the hours until pick up and hear all about it.

In the meantime, I'm back to work : )   I was hoping to have a new collection to launch to distract myself from the very quiet house... however, I'm still waiting on the rest of the new block print designs.  They seem to be held up - let's hope not lost.

For now, I wanted to give you a little look at what I've been up to to prepare for the new store collection.

 You'll notice the new header on the blog that features some of the new products (hello, checked and block print tea towels!) and a recipe coming later today.  

We baked this apple bread for her teacher - we thought it was the perfect spin on bringing your teacher an apple on the first day.

I lined the new loaf pans (part of the new collection) with parchment paper to make them easier lift out after baking.

They are wrapped in parchment paper, then wrapped them in ribbon and attached a new tag... also part of the new collection.  Did you notice the back?  This tag will come in four color versions.  I love it.

I love this mix of peach roses with coral dahlias, sprigs of navy blue berries and little touches of fall foliage.  Perfect pre-Fall colors.

The new hutch is getting lots of photo/product love.  

An entire new collection of mix and match classic linens.

This table is set with layers of block print textiles + hemstitch essentials + checks and candle light.  I love the layered, collected cozy feeling.  For me, a table like this says, come, sit and relax, settle in and enjoy.  That is how I always want my guests to feel and how I always want to feel when we go to someone's home.    

Casual, gathered arrangements.

Help yourself to wine.  Again, my favorite kind of party : )

Comfort food for fall dinners.  Classic Roast beef for company or Sunday night with family.

Healthy weeknight dinners like this "rainbow" soup.  I made a huge batch and am keeping portions in the freezer for lunch.

Home decor that evolves and changes with growing collections, souvenirs and old favorites.

New Gold Leaf frames.

Wild gathered flowers.

Easy giving.


  1. absolutely lovely!!!
    Can you post the recipe for the "rainbow" soup.

  2. You may have said before and I missed it, but where I'd the hutch from?
