Design*Sponge Book Signing @ West Elm
Hello my friends. Today I had a friend text me and say..."did you know you're on the West Elm website?" haha! It still makes me laugh. A month or so ago, my beau Jamie and I went to West Elm to get my Design*Sponge book signed by the fabulous and super cute Grace Bonney. It was so much fun and I felt like a stalker nerd because I noticed that several of my favorite local bloggers were at the event. Among one of those was Chelsea Petaja of Oh My Deer Handmade. She actually created the awesome backdrop for the smile booth, you need to check out her blog, it's so dreamy and I love it. So...back to the smile booth, for any of you who know me, I usually won't pass up a camera, especially one with an awesome backdrop so Jamie and I went over and acted our silly selves. There had to be at least 100 or more people at the event who had their photos taken as well. We all knew they would be up on facebook, which you can see here and here but little did I know that me and my man would be up on West Elm's new blog Front&Main. Jamie seems to think they picked us because he came up with the idea of leaning into the camera...haha...for whatever reason, we're thrilled and now you can barely squeeze both of our heads through the door because you know, we're local celebrities now! Haha! So in honor of West Elm featuring us on their blog, I thought I would come up with a few of my favorite gift ideas from West Elm for the holidays, Christmas style! Enjoy...I'm off to bask in my internet famed glory!
