In my mind I am very Kelly Wearstler-esque: eccentric, polished, glamazony rock-chic, in a bohemian way.

In reality I rarely take off my winter boots at the office and haven't had a working bathroom sink in over a year.

However, I love having touches of the divine around me. These items we have in the shop right now speak to that aesthetic in me: interesting, cool and worldly, in a refined 1970s Bianca Jagger kind of way-gilded botanical, hot pink agate cocktail ring, golden archways. Hmmm, as I blog in my paint-splattered sweats...a girl can dream can't she?

M is for Mid-Century

I think whenever I stumble upon some mid-century pieces my heart skips a beat. There's something about the sleek lines, stylized structure & industrial edge (especially when it comes in contact with wood) that makes it so appealing. Annie & I have some great new items that meet these guidelines in our shop and coming soon. Be sure to grab them while you can!

{Passing the salt just got more fun...}

{Switch on this lamp during your next study or reading session}

{This wood bowl from New Zealand can do magic tricks. It makes everything inside look good}

{Toss your salad in style with these sleek modern utensils}

In the meantime, check out these great finds that will be in our shop soon: {Add some color & shape to any room with this atomic style lamp}

Sorry it has been a while, Kate took a fun vaca to AZ and left me all alone to freeze my tail off. The upside is I get to take a stab at blogging. I am computer un-savvy. But with our country's new found hope and determination I decided "Yes I Can"! So, we will be putting up some great new finds this weekend and I was thinking about how winters are the perfect time to have a cozy cocktail party. The no-pressure kind, with card games and snacks, maybe even slippers instead of stillettos. These funny party napkins could be just the thing to spice up your usual January gatherings.

We love the lines and color on this glass goblet dish. Would be a pretty place to store all those small odds & ends or as a planter on a window sill...

New Nursey

We don't have children of our own yet, but that doesn't mean we don't imagine what our future nursery will look like! We often stumble upon the most unique things would make any nursery precious. Some of these things we keep for ourselves....but others you can find in our shop like these lovelies:
