Just When I thought I've Seen it ALL: NYC Garbage

Umm.....I have never even considered making real trash look this good. Justin Gignac is a genius and pretty much proves good packaging design can sell any product. I think he needs to start selling prints of these cubes because they are all so unique and one of a kind! He also runs WANTS FOR SALE and NEEDS FOR SALE with his wife Christine Gignac. This duo is one to keep an eye on....everything they do is so "outside the box".

Girls Can Tell

Some how I just stumbled across Sara Selepouchin's shop Girls Can Tell. Where have I been?! Her flour sack towels and recycled cotton lunchbags have that nerdy hip charm and
bring a smile to my face! Illustrative diagrams are so fun and witty as well as everything
else in her shop!

Just When I thought I've Seen it ALL

Seriously! Have you seen Dwell Studio's new furniture line?! Its drop dead amazing! I couldn't stop thinking about how much this sofa named George has re-newed my love for Ikat and how much more a pattern can impact a space when it's not just the pattern on the pillows. Picking the right pattern on a piece and not just going neutral is something challenging to me. I have a few pieces left to upholster and I keep telling myself go BOLD and pick a pattern....funny thing is the back of my mind says..."ok..but make sure the pattern is sort-of neutral tones...blacks, white, creams, gray...." We all have to start somewhere but the new Dwell Studio furniture totally inspired me to actually put a pattern on some vintage chairs and I am almost done with them!

Rummaged Goods....

All of these items will be for sale! I am still working on everything for the Etsy shop. I don't know why but I am just so intimidated. The photos, the shipping cost, etc...hopefully I can get it all together soon!

I have loved Donna Wilson's products for quite some time now. I am sure most of you have seen all of her adorable cuddly creations. These are some of my favorites but you should check out the new catalogue on her website!

Café du Pique-Nique

I was looking around for inspiration and stumbled upon this indoor picnic cafe in London. It seems their website isn't working so for more pics I went to this awesome ladie's blog! We totally need a place like this for the summers!

I put your hand up on my hip, when I dip, you dip, we dip...

Since the August 2010 issue of Martha Stewart Living I have been noticing this dip everything in something trend emerge. I feel like I am watching the scene in Forrest Gump when Bubba was naming all the different kinds of shrimp recipes. This is what runs through my head; dipped tables, dipped carving forks, dipped cupcakes, dipped spoons, dipped baskets, dipped chairs, etc. (you name it!)
