Welcome to our second week of this series!

For the Pretty Ordinary series, we’re documenting snapshots of our week that may not be the prettiest or the most interesting, but we enjoyed each instance and want to remember them! These are the behind-the-scenes, in-between moments – the small peeks that would otherwise be forgotten. Join us as we use this series to scrapbook the unedited, memorable happenings at Lily & Val!

4. “Now that the weather has warmed up, I’ve been enjoying walking to the park in the mornings to journal or to sketch. This week my sketchbook has been filled with Christmas ideas for the 2016 collection.” -Valerie

5. “My friends, Myles and Heather, from Stak Ceramics had an open house and Mak and I got to view their new, beautiful studio space here in Pittsburgh. I just love everything they make – especially the kitchen utensil / iPad holders.”

6. “I saw this book in the window while walking down the street and the illustration immediately brought me back to my childhood. This book was one of my favorites growing up. I can’t wait to re-live it now!” -Valerie
