Kid themed...

A few things regarding darling kids...

1. Check out the diy-project for any mother. A pea-pod necklace! Looks so cute and simple.
2. Have you seen Tim MacPherson photography. I am in love. It is so awesome how he creates scenes out of simple household items. I'm sure any kid would dig this kind of portrait.

Who doesn't love vintage....

Vintage internet ads? Love! How awesome are these advertisements for things such as Facebook and Twitter. I'm sorry to say but I think the golden age of advertising is long gone, but these give me hope. Seen via Design Mom.

Embrace the electronic.

I love getting mail...not bills and junk mail, but I just love getting a letter or a postcard. It is such a lost art these days so when something does arrive it just makes my day. With that said I am wondering if there is not a way to embrace the old and new. Check out the Cartolina iPhone app. I have not tried it yet, but basically there are some lovely designed templates which allow you to email or text a letter.

An email I don't find so new but receiving a "letter" text in the middle of my work day could make it that much better. Has anyone used it? Thoughts?

In Seattle this weekend?

Are you by chance in the Pacific NW this weekend? If so you must go check out The Pike Place Market Artisan Food Festival. Saturday from 10-6 and Sunday from 10-5 local vendors, music, a beer garden and demonstrations will be taking place at the market. And Pink Peony Chocolates will be there! And they are going to be introducing something new....the anticipation is killing me!

These bicycle handlebar bags by Adeline Adeline. And you should take a look at the rest of the shop. It is truely lovely. I will take anything from there.

It just makes me want to jump on the cruiser right now and go for a ride...preferably in a quaint European town. P.S. You should look at the helmets! So envious.


Have you seen Papermash? An UK based company with fun tape, gift tags, cards, and adorable craft supplies.

I am in love with this tooth fairy kit. What a great idea! And I'm pretty sure I have admitted my love for tape so this company admiration should be no surprise.

Words of wisdom....

I read this on Color Me Katie...

"Face it, feelings are mutable, and an emotion that seems permanent one minute could be a distant memory the next. Instead of focusing on what could be, figure out what really is and then make your move with haste."

And thought I would share. I find it very calming.

Head in the Clouds

Apologize for my lack of blogging. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend and was able to get back in the swing of their routines. The Cloudly Collection is basically a guys and his friends and a letterpress. Sounds delightful right? Every three months or so they make a new collection for sale and a percentage of sales goes to a charity. I wonder if I could take part sometime?

P.S. I heart their logo.

Go visit They make some wonderful, reasonable priced designed furniture. Some of my favorite things include the Stroller Desk and the ginormous bean bag chair.


Have you seen Studio On Fire? A letterpress printing and design studio out of Minneapolis. I really love their calendar from 2008. And their mixed tape wedding invitations. Oh, how I wish I could have a letterpress.
