Back Home

Back in NYC after almost a week away. Road trips are always good for discovering nuances of this ridiculous country I live in. Here's a piece of Virginia's sky.

Something delightful to lead into a long weekend. At $25 each, I only have to be a quasi-adult to buy them! Here's the delightfulness from Jean Pelle:

I'm off on my roadtrip to North Carolina!

Oh, Sheet!

These Marimekko sheets from Crate & Barrel are Springy and delightful. I think I'll buy them when I'm an adult.

a place for us...

The shoes that I wear most often are in a heap in the closet or a large Tupperware under my bed. If I had Charlotte Tangye's Footprint, I doubt it would change all that, but it's still kind of neat for display purposes. And who doesn't like to display shoes? (I do, but I think it's probably a little strange.)

one of these things IS like the other

I came across a few things today that reminded me of... other things.
This hand drawn rock by Yoran Morvant reminds me of the Havaianas I just got to kick off the summer.

Incorporating nature in an unnatural way is generally enjoyable to me. This grassy sheep by Grassland evokes a similar kind of joy as the sheep in Burberry stores.

Haven't you always wished your rooms could be vertically symmetrical? Well, Spiral Islands by David Trubridge are here to save the day.

This is why...

...I'm always equipped with my camera. Just when you thought the Kidrobot smoking bunny couldn't get any cuter.

watch this

Over the winter I had a crush on a white Toy Watch. But now I have a new crush. This Lip Mythic Jump Hour watch can be purchased at Watchismo.

Now that I'm done with school for the year, I've got lots of time to play with pretty things. Like this cut paper necklace by Jennaca Davies.

I was DYING for this piano phone one Christmas circa 1990. It lived in my childhood bedroom well past college graduation. My friend Aimee had the Garfield phone, and my friend Lauren had the lips phone. I think the burger is from a newer generation of phone awesomeness.
Aaaahhhh....... the memories............

gimme 5

I came across this delightful object from the Cuban ensemble Los Carpinteros in my quest for images that reflect craftsmanship. It makes my argument that in order to be successful in design you must understand construction methods.
