I’ve got major jetlag brain this morning. All I can muster are three words: I want everything. Howkapow (I love that name; it sounds like something a superhero would say after punching someone in a comic strip.) is a new UK-based design shop that specializes in promoting indie designers and illustrators. From cushions, cards and prints to homewares and gifts, they’ve got more adorable (and colorful) design ideas crammed into one online storefront than I could hope for. If you need something fun and bright for the holidays this year, definitely check out Howkapow. I’ve got my eye on a few pieces here for sure. Those dachshund cards are definitely going out to friends and family. Click here to shop the full collection online. xo, grace

    The Dog Lamp and Songbirds Mobile are my favorites! The birds used on the mobile would match my new paint colors in our dining room. Great gift ideas for the hard to shop for as well.
