Poppy's Etsy Pick of the Day 31 Jan 2007

We all know that Etsy is a treasure trove for indie designed goods...but sometimes it feels a bit overwhelming to search through the never-ending options. Poppy has a great new site called Etsy Pick of the Day where she chooses a new item or designer. It's a great way to see all that Etsy has to offer when you don't have the time {or patience} to weed through it all...


Cool Blog: Kuidaore 31 Jan 2007

Grace sent me a link to TasteSpotting yesterday {a site I highly recommend} which led me to a well-visited food blog called Kuidaore. All I have to say is...yum...


work table help... 30 Jan 2007

For those artists and designers who work from home or have your own studio...do you have any recommendations for where to buy a not-too-expensive standing work table? I'm looking for a nice, flat surface table around waist height that also has some storage underneath for my studio. I'm not sure if I want something more unique {like a flea market find} or something plain & simple. This would be the table {away from my computer & desk} where all the messier design stuff happens...so it can't be too precious. Any recommendations are greatly appreciated!

alex + chloe 30 Jan 2007

Alex + Chloe is featured in my shop interview with Michele Varian today. I love their mix of dark, edgy pieces with feminine chunky jewels...


Spicebox 30 Jan 2007

Just in time for Valentine's Day, I am loving these gift boxes from Spicebox. Their interactive site lets you pick from various boxes for that special someone - whether male, female or baby. The package looks personal and homemade filled with quality pieces and products. The Rosemary Romance looks delicious! The site itself is really amazing and one of the best interactive sites I've seen recently...

For those of you who are wondering why there have been less posts here lately, I'm doing double duty and also guest-blogging at Design*Sponge through this week. Check out my special set of posts with interviews and shop displays from some of my favorite shops around the globe...

vintage fabric jewelry... 29 Jan 2007

These pieces by Rae Elle are super cute. Made of vintage fabrics & acrylic, it's like carrying around your favorite swatch of fabric in a completely wearable form...


love-themed polaroid prints 28 Jan 2007

Ali {of Lala} just added these gorgeous polaroid prints to her etsy shop. What a lovely and affordable valentine's day gift...


layers of color & pattern... 26 Jan 2007

Danish designer Susanne Schjerning's gorgeous collection of pillows. You may not be able to read what's on the site, but you can certainly see her collection nonetheless. I love the deep jewel tones and usage of mixed patterns. Check out a list of stores in Denmark, other parts of Europe, at her US rep. Looks like she'll be at the Gift Show this weekend, too! {Thanks Sabine!}


Lala 25 Jan 2007

I saw this link for French stylist Lala Andrianarivony over at Port2Port and had to share. I love photographs like these where the styling brings so much to the mood of the photo...
