1. Veda News: Wedding Week

    10 Comments





    It’s been over a month and a half since wedding day and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve longed to jump back in time and relive it all. It’s an interesting feeling to think that maybe the best day of our lives are behind us (eeks)…I’m thankful it was as magical as I had envisioned.

    As for the crickets around here, thanks so much for sticking with me while I take some time to adjust to this new life of mine. The mister and I are getting ourselves settled in our new home in Denver (more on that later), but I thought I’d share a few more photos from wedding week specifically where we stayed. The wedding week and wedding itself was held at Aly’s Beach in Panama City Beach Florida. Our family rented out one of the homes to be the main gathering place during the week. Many other family members rented out other properties and were just as pleased. These are a few of my favorite shots (all digital camera) from the area. If interested, you can also see many shots from my iPhone on my Instagram account. I would highly recommend staying at Aly’s Beach on your next vacation. The pool is just to die for!

     

  2. Lesson Learned: Feeling Disconnected

    36 Comments



    To blog or not to blog….seems to be the summer blog trend. It’s trendy to say “I’ll be back next week”, but this freedom has me feeling a bit disconnected, disconnected from my norm. My routine is off and my inspiration juices aren’t flowing as fluidly as before. The emergence of summer really throws a wrench into the whole blogging process and finding inspiration and reasoning to STAY INSIDE is pretty darn impossible at times.

    As many of you loyal readers know, blogging is a full time job of gathering inspiration, processing information, taking photos, creating original content, writing, typing, and hopefully hitting publish after the exhausting process. Who the hell wants to endure all of that when you could go drink lemonade on a picnic blanket?

    MNCQVQ (the year 1984 in french) is a French textile brand that is just killing it with originality and authenticity in their designs. They create printed square silk scarves that features hand drawn/painted artwork by creators Amelie Charroin and Marie Colin-Madan. The duo has been featured in many reputable fashion magazines such as ELLE, Refinery29, Mademoiselle, and more. 

    I love how the girls have stepped outside the box, yet still use some classic techniques on such a classic fashion item.

    Hello Veda House readers! This is Ana of Blog MilkI’m ecstatic to be here today and so thankful that Cassie invited me over. I recently found these beautiful lights designed by Basque Artist Martín Azúa. Martín gratuated in Fine Arts from the University of Barcelona. His project The Light Container has made my day today.  The idea of having a floating mass of light inside a metallic basket as a lamp in my home sounds and looks exiting. Don’t you think?

    Hello dear loyal Veda House readers. I’m back from my month long wedding hiatus and am so thankful that so many of you stopped by the blog while I was away. I hope you enjoyed the guest bloggers who were generous enough to provide amazing content.

    I’ll be sharing more about the wedding and honeymoon in posts to come, but wanted to stop in and say “hi” while a take a little while to regroup and get back into the swing of a normal work week. The mister and I are currently packing up all our belongings and will be making the move to Denver in about a week. Lots of transitions happening, but we couldn’t be more excited.

    Aren’t all the palms pretty? All the photos above are from our wedding location and trip in Tulum Mexico. One thing I noticed while away is that my love (maybe obsession) for tropical plants is VERY strong these days. I’ve always been a die-hard beach fan, but I had no idea how overwhelming I loved me some palms….and agave…and cactus…all of it. I definitely documented my palm love on Instagram while traveling. You can see some snippets from our travels in the link below.

    A few day to day insights from Frida Salomonsson of Vardagsbrus

    Frida is a Photographer and Visual Storyteller

     

    I try as much as possible to have a very natural working process. I can start editing something and realize that I like the person’s eye color, so I save it and use that tone to something else, which makes me remember that I need to change the color of something I did yesterday. To switch between different projects and ideas to let one lead to the other, thats a luxury. I do however try to work it out with my planned “unplanned” calendar. It´s chaotic but never boring! – FRIDA

    Hi Guys! Here’s another wardrobe item that I’ve brought with me on my honeymoon. It’s a super cozy patterned jumpsuit WITH POCKETS! In my opinion nothing is better than something with pockets. I also added these amazingly beautiful brass jewelry pieces from Rose & Fitzgerald to my collection. Both pieces are unique, one of a kind pieces that were handmade by artisans in Uganda. Rose & Fitzgerald has quickly become one of my favorite online shops that are also “doing good” in the handmade artisan community. You can read more about them here.

    3. pring cleaning = organizing

    4. I love stocking up at the farmers market, but love having a pretty vessel for my fresh produce almost as much

    5. I can’t think of better inspiration to get outside and picnic than this tiny mobile grill

    6. Fresh blooms call for the perfect simple little vase

    7. My favorite inexpensive way to update the kitchen is a new cute tea towel

    8. Pining over this gorgeous mid century dresser (pun intended)

    9. Sad but true – the only way I’ll get into spring cleaning is with pretty cleaning accessories

    A few day to day insights from Bre of Scout & Catalogue

    Bre is a small handmade shop owner specializing in custom-dyed leather goods & textiles.

     

    Usually a day in the studio starts with an extra large coffee from the coffee shop downstairs. Once I have coffee in hand, I spend the first few hours in the morning answering emails and doing any of the admin work that comes with running a small business.

    The studio building cat, Bruce Wayne, always stops by (he knows how to open the door) and lounges in sun puddles while I’m at my desk. Around 11 I switch over to production which can mean anything from setting up dye pots to cutting and stamping leather.

    Some days I have interns come in to help out since there never seems to be enough hours in the day. I leave work around 6 or 7 and often run by the post office on my way home (I spend so much time/money at the post office that they send me a Christmas card every year!).

    I often do more admin work when I get home which is a habit I’m trying to break. I’ve learned the hard way that working too much just leads to burn out so am now trying to spend more time doing things with friends and family after a long work day…
