I just found a new blog (to me) that is so sweet.‘birdie blue’. — Voted number one in the POPSUGAR creative moms blog. She shoots, she writes, she has a freakishly adorable house and daughter.I feel equal parts envy and urgency to go organize my junk drawers (well, lets just say it. every room in my house is a junk drawer.) Check out her post on (gulp) both my books- she has such a loyal following.God bless you, ladies! xocharliefrankiet + d

I came across this fantastic project the other day and wanted to share it with you! Photographer Klea McKenna and writer Nikki Grattan started In The Make in 2011. They travel around and visit artist’s spaces and document their experience. They strive to bring the real to the art that we see and buy everyday and to expose the realities of life for artists striving to make it in the world. Every week they post a new studio visit. Their site and journey is a beautiful and enlightening experience. Check out more here!

We love apartment therapy. and Apartment Therapy loves camp… SEE THE WHOLE STORY HERE When I was a girl, I’d spend a week or two every summer at a camp by the lake. It was nothing fancy — just barebones cabins and bunks — but what a blast it was. Crafting, archery and tree swings that let you launch yourself into a cool lake? I thought that was heaven. And then I saw Camp Wandawega and realized summer-camp heaven is actually in Wisconsin.You might remember Camp Wandawega’s proprietors, Tereasa Surratt and David Hernandez, from our tour of their seriously amazing…
