apt therapy design night!

A couple weeks ago, I had the pleasure of speaking at an Apartment Therapy design meeting and it was SUCH a blast! I will fully admit that I was super nervous to public speak leading up to the night, but once I got talking I couldn’t stop! I shared a bit about how I got into the creative world, some thoughts on where I see my biz going in the future, and some design tips for adding vintage decor into your space.

It was so exciting seeing so many creative peeps interested in hearing about scout. and pumped to learn about estate sales & seeking out vintage things. I had so much fun meeting everyone who came out for the night and was thrilled to see some of my close buddies there as well!

Thanks to my hubby for taking pics, to Andie & Emily for such a warm welcome in their adorable studio Assemble and to Manuela of Apt Therapy for allowing me to share my story! For more pics and details of the night head on over to Apartment Therapy here!

words out.

Happy Monday friends! I hope you all had an amazing weekend! I had the chance to spend some MUCH needed time at home on the couch after what turned out to be one crazy bananas and SUPER fulfilling week last week! 2012 is off to a great start and I couldn’t be more thrilled!

In conjunction with getting a couple hours of some much needed rest this weekend, I had a chance to stop by the Seattle Wedding Show yesterday to check out some of our loot in the Twelve Baskets Catering booth. And let’s just say I was BLOWN AWAY! These gals sure know how to make pretty of a 10×14 ft space! Yowza! Flag bunting, adorable paper details by Heathoriginal and of course some of my fave scout. pieces sittin’ pretty…I was super pleased and proud to see scout. making a name for itself in such a big way! Thanks to the gals over at Twelve Baskets for allowing scout. to play along : )

Speaking of making a name for itself, I was also super excited to see scout. making an appearance in both the next issue of Seattle Met Bride and Groom AND Seattle Bride! Check out our adorable gold brass vases all done up by the fabulous Mckenzie Powell Designs on page 75 & 79 in Seattle Met and a little writeup about BT&B and scout. + the vintage trend on page 38 of Seattle Bride . Also if you get an extra sec, flip to page 48 in Seattle Bride to snag a peek at my flag bunting and scout. collection from our Montmartre shoot nearly a year ago!

So fun to see that the word’s out about scout! Made my weekend for sure!!!

APARTMENT THERAPY.

I’m about ready to fall right outta my chair!!! My little vintage rental company scout. is making a its debut over on Apartment Therapy today!!! Woot! Woot!

Apartment Therapy is not only the raddest and most popular design blog out there, but one of those dreams I didn’t think I’d be checking off my list for many years to come. Floating on cloud 9 doesn’t even come close to expressing how excited I am! What a way to end my 1st year in business. SO PROUD!!!

Thank to Miss Andie Wurster of Assemble Gallery & Studio for spreading the word about scout. and the fab Trophy Cupcakes team for allowing us to use their gorgeous space! So elated to share our celebration over on Apartment Therapy!!!

when i grow up.

A couple month’s ago I received the most amazing email.

Michelle Ward of When I Grow Up is a career coach for creatives…in other words: she’s this super kind, caring and hilariously funny gal who supports, guides and inspires others to pursue their own creative dreams. My dear friend Maggie referred me to Michelle for her “grown-up gig” series and I was flabbergasted when Michelle said she was interested in featuring my journey.

I feel so crazy honored to be sharing my story on Michelle’s blog today, and was even more excited to see my vintage pieces gettin’ some blogging love. Thanks so much for the feature Michelle!

vendor spotlight on 100 layer cake!

I couldn’t be going into this weekend any more excited! 100 Layer Cake is not only one of the most scrumptious wedding blogs out there but one that I greatly admire. They consistently fill their blog with the most gorgeous weddings and DIY projects imaginable and their marketplace and pop-up shop are beyond brilliant.

I’ve been following their blog consistently for years now, so it was like the best, most amazing Christmas morning ever when I realized that bow tie & bustle was mentioned in their vendor spotlight today. It’s such an honor to be in the presence of such amazingly talented PNW vendors, and I literally have a skip in my step today….so excited for what’s to come for my little company! This whole “following my heart” thing isn’t turning out too shabby : )

Happy weekend y’all!
