me magazine

Has anyone read Me Magazine? It has a really cool concept...each issue explores the life of a guest editor and their circle of friends. It was founded to support, document, and get to know people in the creative community. I need to find a copy and check it out...

Cool Artist: Julie Morstad

Julie Morstad's work has a kind of sad, yet highly narrative feel to it. I especially love her custom wallpaper for Rollout {bottom image}. I like that the fish and sea plants have faces...

Cool Blog: Cupcake Bakeshop

If you've got a craving for a cupcake {which I always seem to have}, the Cupcake Bakeshop blog is seriously amazing. Cheryl, the resident baker, posts beautiful images and handy recipes of her creations. And the flavors sound seriously delicious...Chocolate Bread Pudding Cupcakes...Caramel Apple Cupcakes...and Green Tea, Lavender, and Honey Cupcake Bombe...yum! {via k. talis}

k. talis

I read about the work of jewelry designer k. talis over at True Nature and had to share. Katie incorporates found pieces with her own metal work to create a new narrative for these vintage baubles. I also love her product shots...really lovely! Purchase her pieces here and check her blog for more...

Cool Artist: Richard Saja

One of my favorite things is to find small details in unexpected places. Richard Saja's toile embroidery is a perfect example. Check out these quirky and fun embroidered patches in various spots on this giant toile couch. See more of his work here...

a simple surprise...

Check out the super sweet addition to the complimentary gift boxes at Anthropologie this holiday. Each gift box comes with a small ball of yarn..and inside is a felt snowflake and mini gift tag to adorn the wrapped gift! So sweet and such a lovely unexpected surprise...

happy friday + pillows!

It's Friday...and so close to the holidays...someone (meaning me) needs to get started on holiday shopping & making christmas cards really soon. Today, I leave you with these gorgeous hand-printed pillows made by my friend Jessica Ritter. I've posted about her multiple times because she really blows me away with her new work. Her use of color is amazing. See more of Jessica's pillows here...
