Just in time for the holidays, Anna Bond has opened the Rifle Paper Co. online store. The shop is chalk full of amazing (and affordable) hand-drawn designs... and man is this girl talented! In addition to her custom work, I especially love her thank you cards and holiday postcards...{post script: in light of the online shop grand opening, use the code rifleopens to receive 15% off}

Proving that there is no limit to good design, Best Made Co. has turned the axe into a piece of art. I came across Best Made when they were featured on the cover of the most recent UPPERCASE Magazine, and found them to be so fun and unexpected. The work of designer Peter Buchanan-Smith and Graeme Cameron, each axe is carefully designed and handmade. Couture axes. Who would have thought?

Ever since I came across Garance Doré's post on Anna Laub, I have been a big fan of her line of handcrafted glasses, Prism. Though I may not be able to pull off the oversized frames myself, I love the look. (And the packaging). Take a stroll through the collection here. {Top image by Garance Doré, packaging by sabotagepkg}

Benjamin Hubert's award-winning lighting designs are stunning... I love the materials he uses, including concrete, clay, and wine cork scraps. View all the designs and learn more about his processes here.

As always, I am loving the photography of Sweden-based Sandra Juto, and especially love her well-framed kitchen wall... (check out that sailor image!) {Image copyright Sandra Juto}

Wow, love the jewelry of Jacquie Aiche. I came across her beautiful sea snail rings on mustard and sage (though I can't seem to find them anywhere online)...and her site proved to be full of even more wondrous pieces. Her rocks and minerals collection is especially special.

If you haven't already, you should check out the gorgeous animal photography of Sharon Montrose. Her style is simple yet seems to capture the personality of each animal just so. Fortunately, prints of her photographs are available in her etsy shop (small scale) and through her website (large scale). {Images copyright Sharon Montrose}

One of my favorite calendars that I've seen lately is the 2010 letterpress Specimen Calendar by Postal Press. I love its simplicity and how rich the letterpress looks. I also like their idea to cut the calendar bit off at month's end to turn it into a 6x6 print. Lovely! {Images by Postal Press}

I am a fan of Jane Aldridge, the passionate fashionista behind the blog Sea of Shoes. I especially love the images of her recent trip to Hotel San Jose in Austin, Texas. When I finally make it to Texas (it's on the list!), this looks like my kind of hotel... {Images by Sea of Shoes}

Because one can never have too much white...or too many vintage fans. {Image by Maura McEvoy via Desire to Inspire, the mecca blog for interiors...}

I am head over heels for the HanaBlomst homewares line, created from an influence of Danish and Japanese design. An interesting combination with a stunning result. {Image from Elle Decoration UK}
