The Nest

Now that I have finally moved into my house, 10 months and 1 day after closing, but who's counting? I have developed this nesting instinct, where I am trying to create delightful vignettes of artwork in unexpected places around the house, in part, I think, to avoid dealing with the boxes, which are stacked nearly to the ceiling and are overwhelming to unpack as there are some sad memories in there. I recently broke down when I found the lovely watercolors of Remy from the ultra-talented Chris Hagebak

On the other hand, the last box I opened yielded some lovely postcards purchased in Paris almost 12 years ago, so I was delighted to discover via Twitter that the design genius Eddie Ross was coming to Atlanta, this weekend! He will be hosting a framing workshop at Larson-Juhl on Saturday and I absolutely can't wait to go and get some inspiration as to the best way to display my newly found treasure trove of Parisian postcards.

He has such amazing ideas, like in this grouping of seaweed specimens or in his super playful vintage button display. I am hopeful that some of his genius will rub off on me at the workshop and I encourage any other Martha wannabe's to reserve their spot (class info is on the Eddie Ross website) as soon as possible to make sure to be included as places are limited. See you there and happy crafting!


  1. Can't wait to see you tomorrow! Thank you!!
