Spring Promotion

In honor of the “official” first day of Spring, I thought I would do a little promotion for our customers.

I’ve recently updated the Etsy shop with inventory, and of course you can still shop our boutique items here on this site using the “SHOP” link above…

I’ve even added a new Playroom and Nursery section to the Etsy shop where you can find a few of the items I’ve been hoarding for Finn but decided to let go of…

Here is the promotion information:

Starting now orders over $50 will receive a free gift.

Choose from:

1. small nest of mushroom hand soaps (shown here)

2. black mini urn (shown here)

3. Plume Pen (shown here)

4. Holiday Cards (shown here)

5. Any one set of Postcards (shown here)


I thought this would be a great way to “Spring Clean” shop inventory as well as give away a little something to my loyal customers.

Now for the fine print:

You must spend $50 (excluding shipping) on either Sadie Olive or Antiquity (or a combo of both). Sorry – this does not apply to orders already placed or orders for design work. 

Please make a note in the comments at checkout as to which item you would like as your gift. (Items have limited quantities, so you will be contacted to pick an alternative if your first choice is sold out.)

Offer will expire in the next few days (at our discretion) so act quickly!

Souvenir Spring 2013

It’s here! The Spring issue was just released this morning, and it is beautiful! I had the honor of photographing a friends beautiful home in historic Old Towne Orange for this issue and I had so much fun styling and shooting her space!

My friends Amy and Philip Thai live in a small cottage that they have restored and updated for the last several years. It’s a labor of love, and it shows in every inch of their space. Bright colors and cheerful flowers were perfect for the Spring issue, but the rainy weeks we had during the photoshoot made it sooo challenging!

I hope you will visit Souvenir to purchase a copy of this amazing issue and let me know what you think.

Happy Spring friends!

Simply stunning! I broke down and ordered a print copy even though it meant getting into the grocery fund… can you say budget? but it’ll mean we’ll be debt free that much sooner…. :) (and will have the funds to start serious work on the 1840′s farm… and possibly even get to move there after military retirement!!)

Hi Sara~ gorgeous preview of Souvenir. Such a pretty magazine needs to be seen in person- so I will happily order it! Also, I’m loving your contribution to the Creatively Made Home course. It’s an absolutely awesome course and you ladies are all incredibly inspiring! Enjoying your beautiful blog as well!

I ordered it and just got it the other day!! I LOVE it!! The pictures are amazing!!!


Are you ready for Spring? I am loving this warmer weather, blue skies and most of all – the mini cadbury eggs I’ve been endlessly snacking on.

The grass is finally getting greener, there are a few tiny blooms on my apricot tree and I’ve got a nest of baby birds in my yard that sing to me each morning. I think I am noticing Spring more than ever this year for one main reason – I had to shoot my first “Spring” story during the not-so-spring-like month of January and it was seriously challenging!

This is my second year (fourth issue) being a contributor for Souvenir, and I absolutely adore it. It challenges me in so many ways. I feel so honored to be a part of it and I still get so excited each time an issue is released and I get to see something I shot and styled among the pages. I pushed myself to try something new this time around and although I was out of my comfort zone and was nearly broken by the lack of cooperation by Mother Nature, I think I managed to pull things off (or I hope I did). I will share more details soon…

The Spring issue of Souvenir is being released Monday, March 11th. You can purchase a digital copy (which includes an iPad friendly version) for just $3.95. Print copies are also available for those of you would love to hold, keep and re-look at the issue over and over like I do. Visit the Souvenir website to learn more.

Here are a few peeks at what you will find in this stunning issue…
