MAKING A BACKYARD OASIS

While my guy’s main concern with our backyard these days is all about how green and perfectly cut the grass is, mine is more about how we take advantage of hanging out in it now that the weather is cooperating! So last week I took one of my favorite spots in the yard and made it […]

5 PARTY THEMES TO SAY GOODBYE TO SUMMER!

goodbye-to-summer1

Labor Day always signifies the end of Summer… and while I’m certainly hoping we still have a few weeks of sunshine left, who can pass up a parting-of-seasons party? So, rather than throwing the typical BBQ this weekend, why not try one of these inspired themes instead!? From playful, to glamorous, to campy, one of these […]

    Dearest Melanie and Lesley,

    Ladies! Can we meet for tea? Or sit on a blanket by the shore together? Thank you for posting my work with your insights. Let’s be friends.

THE HAPPY {GLAMPY} CAMPER

michal pidelka for numero france | via coco+kelley

August is right around the corner which means I’m counting down to my first camping trip of the summer. And by ‘of the summer’ I mean my first camping trip in years. It’s not that I don’t like camping… I’ve just never loved it enough to invest in all the stuff you need to do it. And, yes, […]

    Ha! I do both types of camping. PCT for a week next month with my girlfriends. But there is something awesome about having those actual real toilets that come with “car camping”. Have fun!

    Try La Wis Wis! It is memorably beautiful, campsites near the river, beautiful bright blue water, in between Mt St Helens and Rainier. You’ll thank me later!😉

    I love the outdoors, but have never considered myself to be a huge camper. I’m not sure I could handle the lack of running water! That being said, after moving to Manhattan I’ve truly come to cherish all of my weekends out of the busy city. This is a great tip and might provide me just with the inspiration I need to spend a weekend in the woods!

    While I love being outside and hike in the woods, at night I need to go inside a proper dwelling. This was a very cute post- have a great time!

    This was such a cute post! Even though I am a country girl, I tend to feel the same way about camping. I don’t mind getting dirty, but I also love running water for showers and toilets! I hope you have/had a wonderful time!

    I also just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your blog! There is always something fresh and new. It’s so inviting. It certainly helps me on days when I’m not feeling too creative. Thanks for the pick-me-ups when I need them! 🙂

SUMMER IN A BOX COLLABORATION WITH FAREWELL PAPERIE!

Summer in a Box collaboration between Farewell Paperie and coco+kelley

It seems like forever ago that I sat down with Jen and Lisa of Farewell Paperie to dream up a little project for us to collaborate on.  I love their sassy cards and humour and knew whatever we came up with would be super fun. Well, last week we shipped off about 30 boxes of fun to some […]

    I’m not usually a fan of mojitos. I can count on one hand how many I’ve tried, and liked. But this post makes me want to give the drink one more chance! <3

    What a fun collab! I met the lovely ladies of Farewell paperie last summer. I did a letterpress tour demo at their studio with a group of bloggers from Seattle. Will be checking out this summer box 🍍💓
