I'm home (like home home - as in Cedar Rapids, Iowa) for a few days to see my best friend before she moves across the country, which means I get to see my mom's legen - WAIT FOR IT - dary flowers boxes. I'm not kidding. These things are freaking awesome.
Mom usually switches up the flower boxes each year, but this is a repeat of last year because they're basically the perfect combination of flowers & coleus & greenery & all that good stuff. And they are just loaded with the hue greenery as well (the 2017 Pantone color of the year) which may or may not be my favorite color of the year ever (*gasp!*). Read More
This week's color inspiration is once again brought to you by nostalgia. Not because the weather was horrible, but because I spent this week buried in spreadsheets & business plans & when I did go out I was silly & forgot to capture any of it. But never fear - these old photos are probably better than anything I could possibly find in Chicago this week anyway.
Why is that, you may ask? Because these are photos of my homeland... well, that's maybe a little dramatic. Yes, these photos are from Obersdorf, Austria - a tiny little town in the province of Styria. Think the Sound of Music, only genuinely more beautiful. My Great Great Aunt Hermine current lives there, along with a few other distant relatives of mine, and my Grandma grew up here. I mean, I technically only have 25% of me that can really claim this as my homeland. But I sure as heck do! Read More
Alas, the last of the summer top patterns has arrived! Last but certainly not least is the Steph Top - a breezy, lightweight top with a simple lace bottom, flattering sweetheart neckline, & thin little spaghetti straps. Read More
So I am WAAAY too excited about this product release - but I mean, come on, who doesn't love coffee mugs? And how cute are these little buddies?
I've been wanting to branch out into other beautiful items that aren't necessarily knitwear, all while sticking true to the feeling & brand of Freesia Fibers. These mugs were that perfect first step. I took the wreath from my logo design & put it with a motto that pushes me, this business, & hopefully all of you - bloom. It's gentle yet encouraging, with a reminder that it takes time, energy, & (self)care to reach your full potential. Read More
The Jeni Cami is the second in the trio of tops I made for my sister & her two best friends from graduate school. Jeni is one of the kindest, brightest souls I've ever met - I truly don't think there's a mean or negative bone in her body! I wanted to create something that would make her feel confident, comfortable, & stylish all that once. Read More
A cozy yet exciting color scheme from a study abroad trip to Verona, Italy. Read More
My sister recently graduated, and to commemorate & celebrate her achievements I made a trio of tops for her & her two best friends that she met while in school. These three clicked right away three years ago, and I am so incredibly grateful that Erin built such strong bonds to help her get through the craziness of graduate school.
Several of these tops are already available for purchase here, but I am also releasing the patterns throughout the week so that you can create them yourself. Each pattern release will be accompanied by a bit of explanation behind the design & the person it was made for. Read More
