Shameless Plug

Organic Oval and Egg Bracelets

Two bracelets that I designed and hand-carved, from my new jewelry line. More about it here:  I must confess, shamelessly, these really are two of my favorite things.

I've tried every flavor of blush and I always go back to the Benetint. Natural looking flushed cheeks and no sparkles or break outs, which is how I like it.

I stumbled on Lindsey Adelman's website of custom hand blown glass lighting. This is the 7-Globe Branching Bubble, made with brass. Not for the bargain shopper but, by the looks of it, worth every penny.

Bone Cuff

Nothing new here, but Elsa Peretti's design is perfect. One day I'll have one on my own wrist.

3 in 1

I can't figure out if it is the color of the cushion that has seduced me - but I think its the overall quirkiness. Seems like a fun idea for a foyer where you need that bench for shoe-putting-on, those drawers to hide clutter, a surface for a pretty lamp or vase. The Claude Walnut Gossip Bench at Jonathan  Adler.

Hunting Season

I spotted these today at Red in Fredericksburg. Recycled and created by Cardboard Safari, you get the bragging rights without all the blood and guts. Great for little kids' rooms.

The Barcode Pillow from Ferm Living, perfect for all of you out there scanning everything in sight and posting about it on Twitter and FB. (Now THAT I don't get, but this humorous graphic pillow I can get behind.)

The Real Deal

Le Chameau's 100% natural rubber wellies. I'm a sucker for anything French, original and 100% natural, so these are my pick.

High Tea

Ted Meuhling's sterling silver tea strainer seems the height of luxury and extravagance. The sort of detail that takes an already special ritual to new heights. Just so lovely.

Airplane, Antelope, Alligator

A is for...Alphabet Cushions by Elsie Dodds. All impossibly charming making it nearly impossible to choose.
