where yago, I go

So I know we’re all wondering if I’ll grow up and get over my obsession with bright shiny objects. I’d be willing to bet my love of metals will expand, my love of fluorescents… anyone’s guess. Certainly not getting over it today though (I am typing this with some seriously high-octane pink nails.) Also certainly … Continue reading

POSTER FRIDAY// tweed tom

It’s back! Poster Friday. Yay. So this week we’re loving Tweed Tom. I don’t know Tom, so we’ll let his site speak for himself: Tom resides in London where by day he works as a creative for Antidote and by night draws and fascinates over obsolete mechanical marvels. He is also one fifth of the … Continue reading

heart of glass

Head over heels for these shots by Johnny Miller. They make me want to scour flea markets and wear sweaters to the beach… They also make want to find that “double rainbow” youtube guy and tell him I’m sorry for laughing. I’m a believer—A simple bit of light and color can truly be amazing.

it’s a bookshelf, not a wall-flower.

These book covers designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith are completely swoon worthy. Last year my sister gave me a bunch of the other redesigned penguin classics that I am still working my way through… but these Fitzgerald’s would look pretty nice sitting next to them.

domestic-construction tee-pee (sweet!)

Saw this over at domestic-construction… HEAD. OVER. HEELS. I’ve talked about tee-pees before, actually more than once. I pretty much think they are adorable—I’m a sucker for cozy. This one just takes the cake though. In college one weekend we made a fort that covered the entire porch and part of the front yard. My … Continue reading


I saw this over on Pia Jane Bijkerk’s blog and couldn’t help reposting. It is so cute. It has a very “Pooh-sticks” kind of nostalgia, no? All the boats are made by Lenny, who has a blog documenting all this, and who combs beaches and makes little boats with the found objects. This inspired Jeff … Continue reading

A+ (Adam + Amy’s invite booklet)

LOVE these wedding invite/booklet designed by Craig Duffney and letter pressed by Studio on Fire. The way both Amy and Adam had their own capital designed and used throughout (on their own and together as headers and footers) is just a really lovely touch. Also, I wish I saw this more often. I’m a story-teller … Continue reading

nobody puts baby in a corner (2)

Can you believe I’ve used this blog title twice? Unoriginal, much? Seriously, how cute is this crib… er?… playpen… storage space… changing table. Talk about efficiency? Designed by Dutch designer Dave Keune, ‘Nina’s House’ is amazing AND adorable. Would it be too girly for a nephew? (NEPHEW!!!!)

the great escape.

Well I’m vacation and thought I’d stop by and say hi. The summer sojourn is almost over and the blog will be back in time for fall, with a new look. So watch out. In the meantime, this city girl is relaxing in the ever lovely (and oh so pregnant!) Ayna’s backyard out in Olympia, … Continue reading
