UNDERWATER

Hopefully this is where I am as we speak! In a last minute turn of events, David and I and some friends are in Hawaii for quick get-away to celebrate his birthday... Hope you have a great weekend.... and happy birthday David!! {The last time I was there I brought an underwater camera and just recently had the film developed. I forgot how entirely fun they can be.}

ALEXANDER WANG

I love the inside peeks offered by Todd Selby of The Selby, which features "interesting people and their creative spaces." One of my recent favorites has been the Alexander Wang studio in New York. So simple and elegant. {Images by Todd Selby}

NIWA PILLOWS

I am quite smitten by these handmade silk ruffle pillows...part of the Niwa collection by Maki Yamamoto. Yamamoto's beautiful fabric jewels collection is also quite stunning.

TRAMPOLINE

I love these vintage pins for sale in Trampoline's etsy shop, which I came across on A Cup of Jo today (which probably means everything will be sold out soon...) I also love their beautiful polaroid collages...

DINNER & DANCING

This past weekend, my good friends were married here in Santa Barbara and in all the whirlwind I forgot to share their invitations, which I loved... elegant and simple letterpress by Traction Press in LA.

SET EDITIONS

I love these thick, nearly cardboard-weight postcards by Set Editions and their perfect little sentiments... I picked a handful up from the Conran Shop last time I was there and can't wait to put them to use. I also love their cheeky stop talking cards... if for no other reason than to try and think of occasions to use them. Visit their mighty little shop here.

AQUARIUM


This very real video of Kuroshio Sea at the Okinawa Aquarium is so stunning. If you need to relax, I would highly recommend watching it a few times through. {Video By Jon Rawlinson}

SX-70

Bear with me on the eBay-grade photo... but I just found this Polaroid SX-70 beauty on eBay and couldn't be more thrilled. I have been stockpiling some film (primarily thanks to my Dad who ran across a polaroid goldmine in Seattle) and hope to get a little life out of it. And after that... at least it will be pretty to look at.

BOOKHOU

I have been loving the felt trend for a while now, and especially this adorable child's chair by Bookhou. I also love their cut-out alphabet for a kid's room... wouldn't it make a great baby gift?
