Happy Early Cinco de Mayo!!!

Hola everyone!  Getting ready for a Cinco de Mayo celebration tomorrow?  We'll be having a little lunch tomorrow, hopefully with spicy food and a brightly colored set table.  Being in Southern Cal so close to the border, I have to admit we may have the best Mexican food versus anywhere else in the U.S.  Anyone who knows me can validate that I could eat a bean and cheese burrito everyday of my life and be content- and maybe some chips and guac too!  Anyhow, if you're celebrating this weekend, hope it's awesome!

I must share the most gorgeous pillows via Lindsay Rodriguez on Etsy.  She just recently launched her Etsy shop and is beginning by introducing her Sugar Skull Collection- l.o.v.e. the pops of color in her pieces.  I must say, these pillows are made with attention to detail and you know you're getting the best when it's designed by an actual artist.  Linds and I go back almost 10 years (holy heck), she's my college BFF and a rad one at that.  We went through the design program together, both obtaining our degrees in interior design and moving on to work in the career world we call professional (or we can call it crazy, nuts, and stressful too).  I'm absolutely thrilled for her that she's sharing her talents via Etsy and now you have a chance to grab up a piece of it!

I had the pleasure of getting a sneak peek at these pillows earlier this week and they are just as bright and lovely in person.  Lindsay and her graphic designer husband (can there not be a better pair out there when it comes to design?) have teamed up to bring amazing color combinations and one-of-a-kind designs.  No one pillow is alike- but I'm sure if you ask nicely, she may be able to create a pair for you!

Check out her shop here for all the loveliness, and check back often as she'll be launching additional collections: I'll tell you a little secret- I saw her projected patterns for upcoming collections which included chevron, florals, ikat, and more!  It's a definite must add to "favorite" shop on Etsy.  Enjoy.
