dear spring, where are you?

boy is the weather dreary around here these days. with heavy rain and temperatures below freezing during the night, snow is predicted here in northern california *excited grin*. i've even heard that there's a possibility of an inch or more to fall in san francisco on saturday! ummm...seriously...unheard of. today i prepared myself by going out to purchase a warmer scarf and beanie (which to my delight were on an extreme sale) but i'm longing for warm weather, open windows and barbecues. spring is riiiiight around the corner - here's a bit of color inspiration to get you out of this wintery-greyness. xo

*flowers arranged by yours truly*

peach roses, yellow parrot tulips, peach hypericum berries, white hydrangea and white anemone.

after much hard work collecting, photographing my finds and troubleshooting the etsy website over the past week (during valentine's at work...a flower shop's busiest holiday...) fourth + school is finally open! it has definitely been a long week and i'm still working out some kinks...a photo shoot with better lighting is definitely in order...but i'm so excited to finally bring my treasures to you! during the process of uploading items to the shop i even managed to make my first sale! (j u m p i n g f o r j o y) what are you waiting for? head on over, maybe you'll find something you just can't live without :)

as always, thanks a million-zillion for all the kind words and support! xoxo

dear friends...

so we all know i love vintage and handmade finds. flea marketing + thrifting = number one on my list of hobbies and i've become quite crafty too (handmade could possibly be my middle name). lately i've (well, jason and i...he's been a big help) been hard at work preparing for the opening of my very own etsy shop...

why fourth and school you ask -- well, it's the cross streets of our adorable little victorian flat! the shop will carry fabulous vintage finds and handmade lovelies perfect for any occasion. i am beyond excited to finally get this shop going (it was my new years resolution for 2010...yikes! better late than never i say...). fourth and school will launch on monday, february 14th - the day of love - filled with amazingness. i'm thrilled. ecstatic. nervous. but mostly absolutely e x h i l a r a t e d .

so friends, mark your calendars for 2.14.11 for the opening of fourth and school! as usual, thank you lovely readers, friends and family for your continued support. it means more to me than you may ever know. see you over at fourth and school, february 14th!


what's on your nightstand: nichole of little brown pen

today's nightstand comes from nichole over at little brown pen. nichole's blog is overflowing with gorgeous imagery, dreamy tales of paris and drool worthy food posts (c h e e e e e s e *sigh*) -- definitely a must follow.  pop on over and check it out, but in the mean time here's a peek at her perfectly, simplistic nightstand.

I don't like any clutter in my bedroom, so typically my nightstand holds the book I am reading, a candle and some lip balm (not currently there because my son "misplaced" it). I am reading Mark Twain's autobiography at the moment and considering it's the size of a small dog, it may be there awhile.

In the spring, I'll add fresh flowers from my garden to freshen things up.

- Nichole
