bicyclesI’m smitten! Is it a new pet, pair of jeans, flavor of ice cream? Why no! It’s my new vintage bicycle!

Penny Lane, as she’s been dubbed, is my ticket to riding throughout the city this summer. With her curvacious frame, light weight and lemon meringue hue – she’ll be my constant companion to the season’s fairs, fests and lake-side lolly gagging.

Now that I have a new “steed” I’m apt to fancy it up with some accessories to make the ride that much sweeter. Here’s a smattering of some of my favorite handmade and earth friendly finds for jazzing up a bike for the summer! Read the rest of this entry »

Pierogi Picnic: Color Crazy Fashion

You know that the season’s-a-changing when people starting peeling back layers of black and grey to reveal bright and bold hues underneath!

Pining for pops of color after a long and dreary Chicago winter, it seems my palette is also bursting with pinks, yellow and saturated blues. From neon blouses graced with prints to colorful vintage finds that have been altered for a contemporary fit – there’s a definite theme to the Spring Pierogi Picnic collection!  Take a peek at all of this season’s creations in our color-lovin’ Facebook album. 

Here’s to a season of rainbow hues!


WGN Chicago Style Files: Upcycled Sweater Cowl

We are super stoked to report that our newest “Take A Bow” spring cowl was featured on Chicago’s WGN news yesterday! The Style Files segment focused on made in Chicago seasonal accessories. So thankful to Marris Callahan of My Daily Find for including us in her curated collection of favorites! 

When shopping this holiday season there’s nothing better than scooping up items that are handmade, vintage or sustainable. Not only does it mean you’re supporting a smaller business, you’re also promoting a greener economy.

With that in mind, I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorites off Etsy. Here’s my own whimsical wishlist:

Etsy Treasury: christmas wishlist

What’s on your holiday wishlist? Are you dreaming of something vintage or handmade? Share links to your favorites in the comments.

Sometimes all it takes is a special color combo to stir my creativity – and grey and gold is giving me quite the inspiration boost! I love the way the monotony of the first counteracts the cheeriness of yellow hues. Whether in my home or in my designs, this is by far my favorite combo of the season.

This week’s inspiration draws upon the Etsy community’s creativity and the upcoming promise of summer. This fun, brightly colored collection draws together various items to remind us that the new season’s just around the bend. Enjoy!
