I'm Back + ICFF 2012

Hey, remember how I said I'd "see you Wednesday" and now it's the Tuesday after? Man, I'm sorry about that. Coming back from ICFF left me playing the catch-up game hard core and even included an inbox/whale carcass exploding incident. It was messy. BUT! I'm back! And ICFF was awesome:

I met and hung out with so many cool people!

I saw lots of cute dogs!


I had dinner with awesome people!

I saw tons of incredible designs!

I got a fake tattoo!

I stayed with one of my favorite people ever!

I even got to meet Jonathan Adler (OMG)! OMG.

Like I said, it was awesome. If you get a chance, go! You can also see loads more photos from this trip (and all my other adventures) on Instagram at CapreeK.

Meanwhile, I'll be back to regular posting this week!

Happy Weekend + ICFF 2012!

I've been a busy little worker bee this week getting ready for ICFF. This will be my second year attending and I'm super stoked! I'll be in New York through Tuesday, so I hope that some of my posts from Curbly and Dog Milk will tide you over until then. :)


It's typography week, apparently! Here's my wall art shopping guide for all things type-related as well as a roundup of some DIY typographic wall art ideas!

This DIY cork pencil holder and desktop organizer is super cute and super simple!

I love this wood veneer mobile -- I kinda want to make a million!

Before you decide to paint that wood dresser, check out this incredible dresser makeover!

Finnish design gets me every time... Loving this modern dog collection from Neroko!

Wear your "crazy dog person" love on your sleeve--or your wrist.

Gorgeous pet photography by Karin Newstrom!


Happy weekend and I'll see you Wednesday!



NEW from Proper Rugs

Proper Rugs was one of my favorite booths at ICFF last year, so I'm super excited to see their new designs in person this weekend! The three newest hand-knotted rugs include Volcanic (pictured above), Unravel (below), and Autumn Seaweed (last photo). Aren't they gorgeous?
