This past Friday, I finally made it to the Met to see the Costume Institute’s exhibit Manus x Machina. I had sketched my favorite red carpet looks awhile back the night of the Met Gala and knew I wanted to check out the exhibit this year…

East Village Pop Up Shop!

popupshop-revisedHappy Saturday!! The past few weeks have been very busy… lots of things in the works and I feel like I’m going, going, going! But the most exciting thing right now is that you can shop my art in person today and tomorrow at 56 East 4th Street in the East Village!! So far it’s been great, I’m collaborating with five other designers and makers in the cutest little space ever…

Joanna Baker Pop Up Shop

We have yummy smelling handmade vegan candles, vintage clothing (super cute denim cut offs!), graphic tees & tanks, edgy jewelry, and pretty makeup… not to mention all my art prints, stationery, coasters, tote bags and journals!

P.S. There’s a pop up shop deal happening on all art prints – buy two of the same size and get $10 off! It’s the perfect way to start your new gallery wall =)

Instagram Update…

I’m still here, I promise! This past month and the one ahead are all about prepping for the big day… every weekend from here on out is packed with to-do’s and celebrations! Exciting, but tiring and I’m afraid my poor blog has taken the brunt of the neglect =/ I wanted to keep you all in the loop with an instagram recap… thank you so much for checking back in and hang in there, I hope to be drawing again soon!!

The past three weeks in review…

From left to right, top to bottom:
1. Central park during our engagement shoot
2. Tea pot cake at my bridal shower
3. “Just Married” and “I Dodish towels from Mom
4. Gorgeous flowers from the shower
5. Vintage photos of my Grandmother, the top two are from her wedding day
6. Bachelorette girls weekend with my BFF of 23 years included Ladurée (of course!)
7. A trip to Bergdorf’s was also a must
8. The ING marathon front runners just steps from our apartment
9. Tea cups… just received my first two and have started my own collection!

These sweet treats from the bridal shower were amazing… the hostess and dear family friend, Sue outdid herself! Marie Antoinette would have been jealous!! =)

Have a great week, I hope to be back here soon!

Vintage Blue…

Shameless self promotion here: this lovely little print is available for sale now, in my Etsy shop! These pretty blue vases (inspired by a vintage find) are making their blog debut because I’ve been too busy getting ready to leave and haven’t had a moment to sit down at my desk.

And on top of it all, I have a nasty head cold that just won’t quit… it always seems to catch up with me right before I take a vacation. =( On that note, the shop will stay open while I’m away but all orders placed between now and August 18th will be filled on August 19th when I return.

Wishing you all a happy and healthy rest of your week, I’m just hoping I’ll feel 100% after a little rest and relaxation!
