Last Friday, we took a wonderful little day trip down to Santa Barbara by way of the Amtrak Surfliner. It was semi-spontaneous, a lot of fun, romantic and a well-rounded, perfect Santa Barbara day. We shopped, ate, sipped on wine at outside cafés, walked around and shopped some more. Continue reading

Everyone loves a good facelift to a much-needed room or area. I probably like them a little too much – my brain is always working on ‘what’s next’ when it comes to design and decor.

String Art is becoming more and more prevalent in décor. From coffee shops, consignment stores and Free People storefronts, the string art trend is growing. Actually, one of my very first posts here on Bloom and Birch was a DIY String Art project – one of my faves to this day.

Since I wasn’t able to give them an entirely (gender) personal baby shower gift, after they birthed their angel boy, Levi – I went to work to create this string art nameplate for the little man! String art is actually quite easy if you have the necessary tools, time and patience!

‘Tis the Season! Although I love it, I cannot believe it’s already here. The second half of this year has flown by, I tell ya. So, now that we are almost to December, why don’t you say we get a head start on some Christmas Crafts!
