In honor of Violet

Kevin and I went to see our new niece this weekend. She was so tiny and beautiful, I think I would be content to sit and hold her all day. She was wearing this little onesie from Okawa Studios, and I knew that I had to feature it. I only wish I had a picture of her wearing it!

Wren Eleven

Wren Eleven is a beautiful shop that I just found, and I know all of you will love. They carry gorgeous paper goods, jewelry, and art from several different designers. My favorite is the "Riley" necklace. {I love the yellow seed beads!}

Mr. French

When it comes to gift giving, presentation is everything. The next time you need to wrap a present, consider using this quirky paper from Pop Ink. Designed by Charles S. Anderson, the bright colors and beautiful birds will make any gift stand out.

Mooi is Dutch for Beautiful

And aren't these necklaces just mooi? They come in three colors: mauve, red, & green. Imooi was launched in 2000 by designer Anna Chan when she recognized a need for affordable accessories that were still unique and fabulous. Thanks so much Anna!

Sweet dreams

Anyone in the market for modern design in the bedroom should visit dwell. They have several lines of yummy bedding and excellent customer service. Of course, my favorite pattern is the Chinoiserie, but really you can't go wrong with anything from these creative geniuses.

In honor of Earth Day

What are you doing this Sunday to save the earth? Well, you should be buying this lovely journal from operationpapercut. The entire thing is made from recycled paper, and the cardinal on the cover was printed from a handcarved woodblock. What an excellent example of handmade beauty! If all that isn't enough, it only costs $5.50, including shipping!

another set of birds

There's another lovely bird treasury at Etsy today. Littleoddforest has a bunch of cute pins with the "snotty bird" design from the purse I featured yesterday. How cool is that??
