winter loveliness | oh deer!

its winter and there’s nothing better than gathering your family + friends for a special occasion.  we had so much fun working with our suitemates at grit + gold for this winter inspired wedding. the shoot’s setting and feel was winter woodsy. touches of antlers + birch can be found throughout from stationery and centerpieces, to the unbelievably beautifully fun antler and floral head piece.  The sweet treats were the perfect feel of handmade goodness that evokes the feeling of “home”.

fifty shades of love {main social}

Fifty Years… A spectacular anniversary milestone to celebrate with family and friends.

We were so honored to be contacted by the Ellis children about hosting their

September golden anniversary.  It was such a lovely intimate evening amongst their

family and closest friends.  To see how much love, memories, life experiences Sharon and Kent

 shared between themselves fifty years later was so inspiring to all.

Cheers to fifty more!

the art of gift giving

We want to redefine gift giving as a form of expression… a way of expressing love, friendship, hope, happiness and joy.  A way of expressing yourself and your relationships. We want any sense of obligation removed from the gift giving process and every gift given to put a smile on the recipient’s face.

Drawing from the traditional and popular cultures of our world, we love searching for individuals who create inspiring designs that marry functionality with a playful sensibility. As varied as the people behind each product, our finds are injected with rich meaning, evoking emotion between objects and people.

In our search for fine design we have selected a lushous collection of  curiosities for your gift giving needs.  Our  product categories include food & drink, home & gift, desktop, and garden. Much like many cultural artifacts, we at we + you strive to find everyday objects that are not only aesthetically and functionally appealing, but also loveable.  Come visit us this holiday season!
