I ordered this today for our office. But I think maybe I need to put it somewhere more prominent.

moving week!


Pardon the blog silence for the moment, dear friends – we are in the middle of a move! Jonathan, Stella, Twinkie and I are knee-deep in boxes, tape guns, and sharpies. We’ll be back very soon – once the dust settles a bit and we’re in our new home we will have lots of great stuff to share – photos of recent work, an exciting new partnership, and much more!

scarlet letterpress print



I adore this letterpress print from Australian design shop Mitchell & Dent. You simply must check out the rest of their shop – many goodies to be found! When the tagline for a shop is “finery, frippery, and felicitous fare” how could you possibly go wrong?

great gift idea :: custom vintage posters


I am smitten with these custom posters from Alexander & Co. I first discovered these through Ruffled and could not be more impressed. Their vintage inspired illustrations can be customized with your names, wedding date, wedding locale…even hair colors! We have many friends getting married this coming year – what a great gift idea!

design for the dog-lovers

I’m a fan of dogs – so much so that I have been known to {literally} drop everything because of a frenchie (or boxer, or rottweiler, or corgi) sighting. It is no secret that I also love canine-inspired items in household design. There are a lot of really fun doggie-themed items available right now – and many make great gifts. Here are some of my faves. Enjoy!

a day at pacific galleries

Jonathan and I took advantage of an appointment-free Saturday a few weeks ago to do some browsing at Pacific Galleries. We found lots of good stuff – far more than our wallet (or our tiny place) could handle. The next best thing? iPhone photos!



Love, love, love the industrial light fixtures…


My mind is spinning with the organizational possibilities this rolling island presents…definitely our favorite find of the day.


Fun typography, fiberglass shell chairs (love the color), fun fan to add to our collection of vintage electrics…

felted wool pillows


Love these patterns, colors, and textures – these pillows from PLYtextiles’ etsy shop need to find a home on my couch, stat! (Made from recycled sweaters, they’re eco-chic too!)

completely unnecessary, but…


Um…I don’t need this little guy. He serves no real purpose. I don’t need him at all.

But he’s so darn cute, and so much easier than a real puppy…

(Urban Outfitters claims this little guy is a boston terrier. But doesn’t he look like a frenchie?)

our bare walls are taunting me


Our bare walls are on my brain this week (as is evidenced by the two previous posts) – I’m itching to buy, frame, and hang new artwork. And I’m anxious to repaint the living room (currently green, but I think we’re going to paint it the same shade of gray as the studio – just waiting for a free weekend to tackle it).

This screen printed artwork by Slide Sideways is another favorite – perfectly appropriate for our Pacific Northwest household.

dear colleen print


I discovered the dear colleen etsy shop via design*sponge yesterday and immediately fell in love with this print. Inspired by a Tom Waits quote (I know Jonathan will appreciate that) and featuring my favorite beverage (mmm…bubbly), this could be a perfect addition to our wall.

Also, since I’ve been in real pain for the past week (I’m recovering from oral surgery), I can tell you that this print echos my real feelings on the matter.
