So, so excited about my Pop Up Shop on July 15th on Nantucket! If you are on island come see me and send your friends. My trip starts on the 5th and I am making my way up there with stops at Amelia Island, North Carolina and Providence.
Summer is here,
Paperless Post is my go-to for online invitations. They have great fonts, have an easy platform to use and although not free, are reasonably priced. There are some serious designers that have collaborated with them over time and the newest is Serena + Lily. They have some very cute ones to pick from.
I used this one for my upcoming stitch night…
Even though I am a paper stationery freak, I still use these often for small gatherings. Check out Paperless Post!
So, I am feeling like such a fraud. I have the BEST intentions of keeping up this blog but it seems like there is never enough time to sit down and actually post. There are tons of really good posts all stored in my head. Also, since I have not set foot in Newport, Rhode Island in over two years, I feel like a fraud to have this blog with this name.
So, I am resolving these issues right now. I have a few blog posts lined up and I am promising to keep them up as I countdown the days until I leave on my summer trip. My Pop-Up shop on Nantucket at the White Elephant is a go, and I am super excited about it! The logistics of me actually getting up to Nantucket with all of my stuff is another story. My trip is not locked down right now with a few items pending. Hopefully in the next week, I will have a better idea of the day I am leaving and all my stops along the way.
I will be in Newport in a few weeks, so that part of my guilt will be relieved. Looking forward to lunch at the Cooke House and a peek at my favorite stores. If time permits, a visit to the Matouk outlet is also on my list. No trip up to the Boston area would be complete without a stop at the Flat of the Hill on Charles Street, one of my favorite stores on earth. All my Newport roommates are in the area and most of them are coming to Nantucket at some point during my week there. So excited to see everyone.
Kristin Pearce Designs has been gearing up for this pop-up shop. Not only have I have been making tons of jewels, but I have also been ordering cute Nantucket themed paper products.
There are more things on the way. One of my favorite vendors, Boatman Geller, just launched their new 2015 collection and they added Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard icons as well as a blue and white sailor shirt. All are super cute!
Cups with the Nantucket icon are on order and I might have ordered myself a little set of notecards with the sailor shirt and my name on them.
Good to catch up,
