  • totes to dote over

    thomas paul has done it again. he has taken his incredible designs (remember the pillows that i sooo adored) and turned them into totes.

    i am loving this tree tote!

    how fun is this crab tote. it would make an amazing out of town guest bag for a wedding at the beach.

    cute little puffer fish pouch.

    the prices are pretty reasonable. ranging from $20 to $36. You can buy them at a number of stores online. here is a link to design publicwhich has them.

    and finally...
    one that makes me think of my mom. we used to have a russian matroyoska doll/figurine at home that i loved playing with!

  • more than your average dinnerware

    i am a big jason miller fan and love these creative plate & bowl sets.

    they are very pricey and probably not for every day use. i would use them more for decoration but they are fun to look at! and i think make a statement.

    you can buy these at lots of online stores including: velocity, design publicand more.

    check out this video of jason talking about his project:

  • pillow perfection by joom

    days like yesterday make me want to crawl into my bed and surround myself with bright and beautiful pillows to distract me. i discovered joom klangin's unique pillow designs this week. she has a great website and a shop on etsy. her designs incorporate birds and flowers and the colors she uses really pop.

    she was born in thailand and this influence comes into her art. the prices are reasonable at around $28. I really think that throwing some of these pillows on a couch could change its entire design.

    check out joom's website
    here. and her etsy shop here.

    this is probably my favorite.
    i think it is a little tree!

    these would be super fun to get kids excited about actually using napkins!
