This year, we decided to shop local for all our Christmas gifts. So far, we’ve picked up two gifts (at Homage and Tigertree). Thought I’d share some of their products! Clicking the images also takes you to their online stores. [Above: shirts from Homage // Below: items from Tigertree]

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend and a great holiday (for those in the States). As you can see, it was a bit foggy this Thanksgiving, but we really enjoyed ourselves. Of course now I am extremely excited because it’s now officially the Christmas season! Expect a lot of gift guides, holiday-themed pos

Happy Monday! Not too many links this week but enjoy these because they’re fab: – I love these designs for the Museum of Unnatural History found via Pitch Design Union. – Atlantic Treefox has re-opened their Etsy shop and I realllllly want one of her posters. – Fooducate is a new iPhone

Too many photos? I don’t know the etiquette of photo posting but there you have it. This pretty much sums up the past week. I went into a Half Priced Books for the first time in my entire life. I wish I had a separate bank account strictly for books and records (and maybe a […]

Have you heard of The Wilderness Downtown? Visit the site using Google Chrome and you’ll be pleasantly surprised. It’s an interactive film created by Chris Milk (the website also says that it is a Chrome experiment and made with some friends at Google). You enter in the address of the home you grew

Some of my favorite identities that I’ve recently come across. The top is a self initiated identity for United Printing of Chicago by Woods & Weather. The second is The Chop Shop designed by PTARMAK. The third is work for Uncle Pear by Uncle Pear. Love love love!

I have this childish fascination with terrariums. So much that I can hardly spell the word terrarium. The Brick House just recently posted about DIY terrarium (photo below). And then I stumbled across a listing on Etsy (pictured below). I love both styles. Decisions, decisions. Do you own a terrarium? Did you b

Sometimes when I just see a list of links, I’m not as inclined to click on them! So here are your visuals, my lovelies. I love this daybed. I’m not sure if I would necessarily love sleeping on it but I’d love to look at it. In my home. Found here. Buy it here. The […]

I had Veteran’s Day off so me and a pal decided to hit up the outlet mall near Columbus. I wasn’t expecting much. I grew up near an outlet mall that was comprised of about three fully functioning stores like Nike, Dress Barn and something else not worth remembering. This outlet mall, however, impres

I asked a question on Twitter last week. “What one celebrity would make you feel the most starstruck?” Here’s a visualization of the answers I received. And my answer? Well, that would have to be Chris Martin. And I don’t even want to hear it from the haters. I’ve been to seven Col

I almost wrote, “And it was clam.” Fried clams sound really good right now. Anyways- I hardly took ANY pictures while I was in Illinois. I could kick myself! I was able to spend time with lots of family and the best of friends so just know that it was wonderful. Check back tomorrow for […]

– The photo above is a photography by Cheryl Maeder. The soft, blurry photograph remind me of a Mark Rothko painting. (Found via Black Eiffel) – Delight by Design just featured a gorgeous bar cart that I’ve been staring at for awhile now. – Oh Joy! featured work by Dale Frank awhile ago

“Here, I’m mother’s little daughter.  In New York, I see myself as Edith.”- Little Edie I  watched Grey Gardens on Halloween this year (the original 1975 documentary). My mom has always been a fan of this mother/daughter duo for quite some time but I never watched it with her. The thre

I thought I’d mix it up this week and share some of my most recent favorites on the blogosphere. Blogosphere? Is that the right term? You can click the headers to take you directly to the wonderful bloginess that I adore. Too many blog words. I’m done.
