Sometimes it is better to plan ahead

It's that time of year. Time to start planning and pretending that you are going to be organized in the new year. These planners from Otsu are so groovy I couldn't decide which to post I will post all three! Check them out on Cut + Paste's website here, here, and here.

Crafts are cool!

instructions for crocheted ewok

Do I need this?

This is a potato pin cushion. It's pretty awesome. Oh and did I mention there is only one left? For sale here


I know it is after Christmas and all, but I can see these peanut dolls being made for any holiday right? I saw some of these at a weird dirty store here in NYC, but found the instructions on The Small Object's blog. Yes, this is a potentially life threatening craft project for a person allergic to peanuts, but me and my epi-pen are up to the challenge!

A bag I must own

I stopped into Cursive (the store just inside the doors to ABC carpet here in NYC) and found these terrific plasticized clutches made by Lisa Stickley. Although it is difficult to tell from the photo, when closed this bag has a very refined and ladylike structured shape. I love the contrast of the constuction vs. the plastic material...tres chic! Anyone in NYC must check out Cursive, you will not be sorry! If you are from a foreign land don't dismay, I will be posting plenty of pieces on them.

Do not eat!

Have you ever wondered what would happen if you ate one of those silica packets that comes with your new shoes? So have I, but I'm not about to no matter what this article from says. Just thought you might be curious.

Mom would like this

You know it's always after the holidays that you start seeing things that would be excellent gifts. This little desk frame is just such an item. Would have been so thoughtful to give to mom for her desk. DARN!!!

New Years resolution

This year I promise to write more letters. Nothing long, just a quick hello note.
Aren't these the perfect little cards to send to your loved ones? I might even send them to my liked ones if I can spare them.

Kind regards,


Be a deer...

I love the look of a severed animal head as much as the next person, but grapple with the moral issues involved in acquiring one for my decor.
What's a person to do?
Well, the good people at Velocity Art and Design in Seattle are selling these wooden deer heads that would make a fine substitute. They are 100% guilt free (except for the price tag) and would compliment pretty much any interior.

Peanutty good

I am allergic to peanuts, but this necklace is not giving me hives...unless you count hives of excitement over the prospect of owning this delightful piece!
For sale at Anne Ma Designs. They've got more than just gold dipped nuts too. Check out this bracelet, and Madonna necklace. Very nice indeed!

Wowie Zowie

If these aren't the perfect New Years eve shoes perhaps I have lost my touch. Oh, and did I mention that they are ON SALE from Barneys???
You are welcome.

It's finally here!
