If Bloggers Ruled the World... with Erika from Small Shop

Today, I'm thrilled to announce that today's IBRTW participant is the one and only Erika Brechtel, owner of Small Shop studio and author of the fabulous blog by the same name.  If you don't know Erika, she is a creative genius with impeccable style, a flare for 70's glamor, and a true eye for design.  I can count on visiting Small Shop and being inspired on a daily basis whether from jaw dropping interiors, gorgeous editorials, or beautiful shin-digs that she pulls together for friends and families events.  Please welcome Erika...

I think Erika has a great point that so often there are important causes closer to home than we realize and possibly right outside our door.  Thank you again Erika for participating and for a heavy dose of inspiration head on over to Small Shop!

  3. I'm Erika's #1 fan and I am inspired by the action she took to become involved with the Junior League and their charity. It is so surprising about the number of homeless children and it is cause that should be talked about more often.
