She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not: Moth Design

I'm smiling ear to ear today because my very sweet friend Erica, of Moth Design, is here!
MOTH DESIGN

DESIGN FOR THE LIFE WELL LIVED

I had the pleasure of meeting Erica in San Francisco over the summer at our design blogger's meet up.  It was grand. I felt like I learned so much from her in just the 20 minutes we were talking. I simply adore her. And you're about to also! Take it away, friend...

Well hello there! It's Erica from Moth Design, delighted to be taking part in sweet Michaela's She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not series. I have lots of loves... this part was easy!


She Loves Me:

1. Organization! I've recently discovered the brand Russell+Hazel and am loving their products!
Shopping lists and to do notes look great jotted on these darling, french saying Quip Cards.
Plus the lovely lucite holder looks fantastic on my desk.

2. I find myself often dreaming of having my own classic style bicycle with a basket. I think I'll treat myself to one next spring similar to the one below. 


3. A recent trip yielded a visit to a Tory Burch store front. I'm delighted with the fresh citrus scented TB signature candle I purchased. My house is smelling fabulous and that little punch of orange is great!

4.  San Francisco! I went for the first time in the summer and am in LOVE with this wonderful city! 
I enjoyed every second of my trip. (Including the pleasure of meeting Michaela!) 

5. This one is a love that will remain a daydream. I kinda LOVE the Fiat 500. Here's Elle MacPherson with hers. However, for me, it's not so practical for a mom with 5 boys. I still love this cute little car.

She Loves Me Not:
1. My weekend was plagued with the irritations of a basement leak due to drain clog. Miserable. I'm still dealing with soaked cardboard boxes and the looming smell of wet dog. (without the wet dog)
On the bright side the problem is being remedied and will never happen again. Yay!

2. Weeds! We have our share and they seem impossible to keep up on at times. Boo!

3. High waisted shorts. I really don't think this is a trend I can ever take part in. I think these look pretty awful on any body type. Hope this doesn't offend anyone but I'm giving them a thumbs down.

So there you have it! It's been my pleasure, Michaela. Thanks for having me! xo

I'm so jealous of her trip to Tory Burch!! And living with leaky basement pipes is no fun at all.

Be sure to stop over to Erica's blog today.  Say hello and take a tour of her awesome kitchen here!  {Find more of her home tour on her lefthand sidebar.}

Happy Wednesday, dolls!
Love,

  14. I love the candle and thinking about citrus...I guess I'm pretty much just a sucker for anything Tory! And oh-em-gee I am with you on the shorts thing! Can't stand those, but strangely enough I don't feel the same about the pants...(c:

  22. Erica is so sweet and has such style. I've also had the chance to meet her in person. A warm and beautiful person (inside and out).

  23. I'm so glad I found your blog through Erica today. I'm pretty much in full agreement with the list. We are spending Thanksgiving in San Fransisco and I can hardly wait. I love that TB candle and I love all those things in Lucite boxes...I recall an article with Tory Burch and one of her loves was lucite desk items too! I guess great minds think alike.
