Jack and Lulu

I've been pining after some calling cards, like these by Jack and Lulu. From the looks of it they have some fun things up and coming.

laurie cinotto art + craft

One of my new favorite creative minds is laurie cinotto of lalalaurie.
Aren't these boutonnieres incredible?

Rocker Baby

Rocker Baby has made the jump from etsy to their own online store. Check out their great goods that are largely on sale in celebration. (Like this too-cute-for-words Audrey Dress)

Lime Ricki

Lime Ricki Swimwear
has some great {modest} swimwear options. Their shipping is a little steep ($10 ish) and their models have massive underbites (that's the detriment of living in a dental world), but I like what they are trying to do.

Heath Ceramics

Heath Ceramics has some really lovely stuff in their new summer collection. Maybe someday I will own dishes or a vase worth more than $5. I'd like to think it's possible.

Homestead Blessings

Okay, these are definitely carrying the granola vibe, but I think it's kind of cool that I can learn to make my own soap/bread/candles by watching a DVD. Didn't you know that self-sufficient is the new black?

garden marker

Love these upcycled garden markers from orphaned silverware by monkeys always look. You know, for those with dirt of their own.

pockets for plants

I love the idea of planters that make use of vertical space. (And don't require horizontal space, because all of mine is either cluttered with stuff we don't want the toddler to reach, or within the toddler's reach) These by Maruja Fuentes are ingenious. (Via housemartin)

The 3/50 project has me all kinds of intrigued. If only I had $50 in discretionary funds in a year. Tucking this one away for my having-an-income future.

martha's unused dresses

See this tiny photo? It's from a MarthaStewart Weddings Blog inspiration board. An image apparently never used in publication, but in some archive available to whomever blogged it. And it happens to show little girl dresses so perfect (to me) that I want to cry at my inability to source them.

Olive Tin Kitchens

I saw these mini Olive Tin Kitchens by Rafinesse & Tristesse on ohdeedoh and thought they were ingenious. Somebody's thinking cap is working awfully well.

ruffle pants

Yet another reason I need a girl. I love these ruffle pants by artsiegirl.

Falling Garden

This "Falling Garden" installation in a church in Italy is amazing.

Piper and Paisley

I've never been much of a hat-wearer, but I'm a big hat-collector. I think if I were to actually wear a hat it would have to be one from Piper and Paisley's collection. They look awfully compatible with everyday living, but still have a ton of fanciful details.

On my list of things to do before I die:
wear one of Rudman's victorian scarfs without feeling overdressed.

Nicole Landaw

This girl makes some lovely stuff. It all looks delicate and chic and I love it.

crocheted flower necklace

I knew crocheted necklaces were an up and coming trend, but a crocheted necklace made entirely of gold and glass beads? Wow.

fitted shirts for grown men

Daily Candy informed me that commonwealth proper is located right in my backyard and have gone to great lengths to construct gorgeous men's shirts. It will take me about five years to convince the man in my life to wear one, and maybe by then I'll be able to afford one.

illustrated invitations

I think the illustrations incorporated in Rifle Design's portfolio are brilliant!

Timothy Liles Crayon Rings

These Timothy Liles Crayon Rings intrigued me enough that I did a search for molded crayons on etsy and found even more fun crayons to add to the imaginary collection.

Serena and Lily has reinvented the moses basket with their Sausalito Baskets. I'm kicking myself for not thinking of this first. (Their new slings look pretty slick too)


I have to admit that the humor in these Thorsten VanElten Taz Ah mugs appeals to me.

I think this little dictionary dot ring by foundling is terribly sweet.

Imps & Elfs

I am loving the photography and short films on the website for clothing company Imps & Elfs.
Because, you know... I needed more gorgeous children's clothing out of my price range to drool over.
