Can you believe it’s already Friday? John and I will be having an easy going, movie watching, spaghetti cooking weekend. I’m especially looking forward to reading a good book, visiting the flea market and cuddling with my baby Alfred (the pug).
We have a fantastic Plucky Pioneer interview lined up for Monday. I won’t reveal who, but let’s just say she’s an artist who has done work for a certain someone named Spade…
Next week is also going to be a big week because I’m finally unveiling that hush hush project I mentioned in my New Year’s post! I’ll also be hosting my first giveaway—something I’m very excited about! Stay tuned!
Alright, you know the routine—what are your weekend plans? Everyone must have at least one thing they’re looking forward to…won’t you share it with your fellow neo-trads?
XX your fan Kate
P.S. Thanks for all the sweet comments this week. You’re the best.

I found these photos of a French girl named Clémentine on Flickr yesterday and absolutely adore them. I know nothing about her except that she has a lovely name and judging by these photos, I think think it suits her quite well. Don’t you just love her slouchy cap, tights and scarf? Adding Clémentine to my future baby names list…swoon.

My new apartment is rather temporary (we’re moving again in four months…), but still desperately needs a little something. Today I created this inspiration board to lift my spirits. It’s plastered with things I love (click to enlarge if you like). A run through starting in the top left corner — a letter press “K” from Kate’s Paperie in Soho, on old photograph given to me by my French host family of their estate in Provence, a pretty silk flower from H&M (love a good bargain), a fortune I found in a cookie the week I moved to West Virginia that reads “Great things happen when men and mountains meet,” the T magazine logo done up in jewels by Karl Lagerfeld, “You always look so cool” quote by Fitzgerald, admission buttons from the Met, a vintage monogrammed locket, a card from my grandmother with photos she took of the vineyards back home in California (sent to me when I lived in Switzerland), a black and white photo of my grandparents leaving for their honeymoon, a poem torn from a book, a polaroid of John I took in Maine (its so cute—he’s blinking), a photo of grandmama Rita from the sixties in her trademark HUGE sunglasses, a childhood snapshot of myself looking like a boy (my mom thought the haircut was cute—thanks mom), a postcard of an Alex Katz painting… Have you had enough? Now it’s your turn. What would I find on your inspiration board?
What, my darling readers, inspires you???
