{adoring} a beautiful mess

Had to share... discovered in the New York Times...did you see it?

the first thing that drew me was the name of the store...

'a beautiful mess'

(oh! that's what I call my home too!!)

Located outside Malibu, Ca

(just another reason to move to visit Cali!)

Take a stroll to their website and be delighted...
a beautiful mess...
and then hop over their new blog...

but don't miss

Kimberly Frasers website

(the incredibly talented co owner of a beautiful mess)

...oh the inspiration you'll find there!
Her creations are simply gorgeous!

{pure love}

It's been a very busy first week of the year here in my studio. Late yesterday afternoon I realized I hadn't left my beautiful mess all week!- (with the exception of an occasional post office trip)- but all in all it was a good week... lot's of orders finished and some new designs started!

I'll be sharing those with you soon:)

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Hey girl, I see you're keeping busy. Would you mind sharing the link to the Beautiful Mess blog, as I wasn't able to find it on google? I wonder if it's the same girl who's house I visited in Cali. It was so rustic and dreamy... Hugs!Sandy

Oh wow, I might have to talk my husband into taking a drive to Malibu! That looks like a gorgeous place and I love the name!!!

Marsha @ Tattered Chick said...

Ohhhh, I'd love to visit that store (and I too LOVE that name) I live in California but Malibu is a LONG drive from the Sacramento area :(

THat mess is simply beautiful!! So dreamy! Hope you keep warm Paula and thanx on our tile though it was just what the builder picked out!:) We actually do like it but want to rip it off of our back splash.

That's an attention grabbing name to be sure. Looks wonderful. Their website doesn't sell stuff though...... :(
