crested shield calendars from the paper thieves

I’ve always had a thing for crests, plaques and shields, and these 2012 calendars from The Paper Thieves really appeal to that medieval-loving side of my personality. It’s sad to see beautiful calendars go at the end of each year, so I love that these can be easily repurposed to become a permanent piece of…

These days, I’m borderline obsessed with finding ways to bring the outside in. Six-foot blooming branches in a vase? Sure thing. Terrariums in every room of the house? Yup. Living room lamp that happens to have moss growing inside? Check. So when I saw these cute twigs turned into magnets (called “Trooks“), I spotted yet…

caitlin mociun + baggu

I’m officially a Baggu hoarder. Seriously. I cleaned out my closet to prepare for the book tour (Verdict: I need to stop buying so many stripes.) and found a sad forgotten pile of Baggu bags in the back corner of my closet. With those rediscovered bags added to the pile, I think my total comes…

outdoor organization time

Around this time every year, my parents would go on a mission to get the garage organized. Everything would come out, the cement floor swept and hosed off, and then it would all go back in. In a family of six, this was no small feat, and pitchers of sun tea were necessary to sustain…

travelteq messenger

I’ve discussed my love of handsome travel bags before, but I always enjoy having a new piece to add to my wish list. I know rolling luggage is more practical (and helpful for my seriously sloped shoulders), but I’m always drawn to a sophisticated leather bag. This new canvas and leather messenger from Travelteq is…

gildem california

When I have a lot going on in my work life I like the things in my personal life (and home) to be as simple as humanly possible. I want to come home to a space that acts as a visual palate cleanser and lets my brain rest a bit after a day spent filling…

just potters

Last week’s trip to Terrain got me on another plant kick, so I’ve had plant markers on the brain. My summer flowers always croak this time of year, and I’ve got a new collection I’m hoping to nurse through the colder temperatures. These beautiful plant markers from Just Potters caught my eye because of their…

found my animal

i had to take a quick home design time-out to mention these adorable leashes from found my animal. owner bethany obrecht emailed with these pictures and i was instantly hooked- not only because the rope leashes (using handmade rope from new england) are so sweet, but because found my animal donates 25% of their proceeds…

john pomp

john pomp makes the most beautiful glass objects. these hive-shaped pieces are simply stunning- i really love his use of color. don’t miss his beautiful “organic studies” pieces that are truly works of art. they were inspired by a field trip to the museum of natural history with john’s “little brother jackie” (from big brother…
