My friend Todd owns a really cool clothing company called Toddland. He was approached by a store called Icons of Surf in San Clemente to do a special store display, and he asked me to help him. He bought a sideboard and hutch from the thrift store (a steal - only $10 for the sideboard and $5.99 for the hutch!), we drew up some plans, and got to work. I spent a good portion of this past weekend in my garage painting and contact papering the pieces. This morning, Todd delivered it to Icons of Surf and put it together.

And now all together:

Here it is being put to use!

Toddland is available online at the Toddland website, as well as Urban Outfitters (in store and online), Fred Segal, and a handful of other places, which now includes Icons of Surf in San Clemente.

I bought a button maker! What will I do with it? I'm not sure yet. But I do know I have wanted one since high school and I am having way too much fun with it. I made my husband a button of our cat's face. :)

Today I went to the Renegade Craft Fair, L.A. edition! There were so many awesome goodies, and unfortunately I really needed to budget myself or else I know I could easily drop hundreds of dollars without realizing it. So after a couple laps around, I carefully decided what I would purchase. Here are things I bought, followed by links to the websites where you can check them out.

Clockwise from top left: cute coasters with a vintage-inspired print by rock scissor paper, big pink elephant pin from oh, hello friend, owl/tree necklace and owl earrings from postcards+love, bird brooches and fawn earrings from oh, hello friend, and felt moustache pins by i made you a beard.

Just a little 9"x12" canvas and a quick painting to pass the time...
