Can I be friends with these people?

Oh, wait, I AM!!!!

It was my friend's birthday yesterday! Birthdays are so fun :) I called her to wish her a "Happy Birthday Boo!" and while we were chatting she told me about a blog they had started. Its called, Rack Love! These two do everything on their bike, as they should since Amber works for Specialized and makes these amazing bikes! Check out some of my favorite things they have done or carried on their bikes recently:

guy in truck: "hey! are you delivering that pizza?!?!"
me: "um, to my house"
guy in truck: "sweet!! what pizza place are you from? who delivers pizza on a bike?!"
me: "well, none that i know of..."

when invited to a friend's house, a good guest never shows up empty handed. a great guest shows up with ice cream.

when you go to a quinceanera, you must bring a pinata, and you must put lots of candy in it, and everyone will be your friend.

If you need a smile today please check out Sam and Amber up to their daily antics at

Don't you want to be their friend? ;)

Having a little fun this Fall!

Harvest is in full swing!

Grapes are pouring into the winery, the smell of carbon dioxide is swirling through the air as our little grapes work themselves through fermentation and the 2010 crop is slowly turning into a delicious lip smacking vintage! But that means things are BUSY here! We are working every single day to get all the grapes in before the rains hit. So I haven't been around the ol' blog very much.

Funny thing though, with all the stress that goes along with this time of year I needed to find a way to let it out gracefully ;) Usually I clean, but my house is pretty sparkling at the moment! (how does that happen?) So I knit a few scarves, but a girl can only have so many scarves.... so I set off in search of other things to make and calm my nerves before bed and this is what I came up with! What do you think?

Fabric Flowers!

You can wear them in your hair...

The puppies like to wear them in their hair ;)

They can be grouped together like a large broach or hair piece...

 I like to pop mine on my sweater...

Or my beanie!

I love these for Fall. I have been putting them on everything lately from my scarves to my purse handle. They make me feel so girlie and are a pretty little touch to make me feel special when I'm covered in grape juice and trudging around in work boots at the winery ;)

I made so many that I started an Etsy shop!! I would love if you would stop by and let me know what you think :D The shop is called The Frog and The Owl. Browse around. I would love to hear your thoughts. I also just placed a huge Dupioni silk order so there will be TONS more to see very soon. I hope you guys like it; its certainly been keeping me sane!

Although, my clean house has now transformed into a work space and might possibly be covered in flowers ;) ooops guess I'll have to clean again!

So happy harvest to everyone and hopefully we are out of the storm soon so I can check in more here on Vantage Point.
