Last Friday, I went to the Minted meet-ups in Atlanta. The first was brunch at West Egg Cafe -- delicious food, retro-chic atmosphere, and most importantly, fabulous company.

And a crop of the new Minted tees adorned with amazing hand lettered cards by Sydney:

You know I'd love any place that had vintage school supplies on the table:

And Coke:

If I were going to gut my kitchen, I'd be tempted to do blue cabinets, marble countertops and a white subway tiled backsplash. Don't think I could pull off the open shelving, but I sure like the way it looks.

And it never hurts to have a cool-looking website:

That has a quote from The Great Gatsby on the home page, no less.

West Egg was also just featured in Rue Magazine:

So basically, it's a must go if you are in the ATL!

The second meet-up was at Bocado. We sat out on the back deck and enjoyed drinks and appies. They make a mean Gimlet. And the appies were yum, too.

Thanks to Minted for hosting these get-togethers -- for an independent designer who usually sit at my computer all day, it's nice to actual get out once in a while!

Alston! I loved finding these photos on your blog. I was hoping somebody would post photos from the Atlanta meetup. P.S. I love your blog. You share some really inspiring stuff.
