A few more highlights today from the Surtex show: brejer is Breanne & Jeremiah Simpson. They license their patterns through Robert Kaufman, Neiman Marcus, and Shutterfly to name a few. Khristiana Howell's booth was full of vibrant patterns, though I especially liked this sweet . . .
We've been traveling a lot these past few months, and this past weekend was no exception. From Georgia to Florida and then to Pennsylvania and NYC our weekends have been jammed pack with lengthy road trips and visits to family and friends in other locales. Here are some iphone photos I was able to . . .
Port Fonda is a food truck/airstream/mini restaurant in Kansas City, Missouri with a small table on the inside. They serve gourmet Mexican food. Awesome! ** Image Credits: ink & Port Fonda . . .
DaisyCakes is a bakery that just opened up in Durham, North Carolina. They began their business a few years ago by selling cupcakes out of a vintage airstream aptly named “Sugar”. Their new location is spot on, just a few steps away from the bustling Farmers Market on Foster Street and next door . . .
