from the weekend: hike & work

palos-verdes-weekendThis weekend I did a lot of last minute prep work for my One Kings Lane sale (which starts tonight!), but also took some time to fit in a stunning california hike, my favorite.

A Sunny Afternoon + One Kings Lane!

sarah sherman samuel // one kings lane - artisanal sale // a sunny afternoonHappy Friday guys. I wanted to share some exciting news!

I’ve partnered up with One Kings Lane to do an A Sunny Afternooon Artisanal sale! I’ve been a big fan of One Kings Lane for quite some time, so when they approached me to sell my own products I about jumped out of my chair. They have partnered with so many top designers, tastemakers, and all around amazing creatives (I mean have you seen the “Paris with Kelly Wearstler” sale going on right now?) and I am seriously chuffed to be a small part of what they are doing.

The sale starts this Monday (the 31st) at 6pm, it will be packed with my A Sunny Afternoon goods, including a few new pieces, and be up for the week! Check out the preview here.

from the weekend: the good, the bad, and the really ugly

03.23.14-weekendThe good: Saturday we drove downtown to check out the Parachute Market, a beautifully curated design fair and then stopped by the equally beautiful Ace on the way back for a little snack.

The bad: On the drive home I started not feeling so well.

The really ugly: We arrived home to a freshly varnished hallway which I immediately had to put my personal stamp (ie footprints) in, while running to the bathroom where I became violently ill and stayed for the remainder of the night. (tmi? probably).

I should also note that it was NOT the Ace’s food that poisoned my system. I am pretty sure a late night taco truck run the evening before was the culprit. Ew. I hope your weekend was better then mine!
