small gifts

Sometimes it's the smallest gifts that are my favorite. My Mom gave me these ReproDepot notecards for Christmas. She had no idea I was a fan of their website. They sit on my dresser in their perfectly patterned box. I am afraid to use them!

I was happy to see that you can buy CDs with all of these patterns. Another masterpiece published by Chronicle Books.

broken bells

I just heard this song on our local radio station. It is a collaboration between James Mercer (of The Shins) and Danger Mouse. I look forward to purchasing this album in March.

design squish

I have found a new blog that is near and dear to my heart. Mixing design, environment, recycling, fine art, line art, home and just overall inspiration, Design Squish seems to find it all. My only wish would be for more links. I am a lazy blog-hopper.

better late

So Lonny Mag has a second issue. It has holiday shopping tips. Whoops. Better late than never. They once again feature beautiful interiors of hotels, homes and stores (J. Crew and Kate Spade). The issue is LONG on color and I love it.

vintage industrial

Oh how I love battered old stuff. Chippy chippy paint, caster wheels, old wood. Oh Happy Day just featured Cleveland Art. They have beautifully old pieces that I have been refurbished for your modern home. I am wanting it all.

wonderful finds

I have been slowly going through The London Times 50 Best Design blogs. I don't think it is possible to reach the end of the internet. Some of my favorites today ...

The gorgeous invites above are by Ian Koenig and Erin Jang via Mint Design Blog.
