see you at the gift on grand this weekend...

also, also: please be sure to keep an eye out for the kim family benefit art + craft auction in january. i'm so glad that something positive is emerging from such a sad, tragic event. what a wonderful act of kindness from some lovely artisian/blogger/friends and what a wonderful thing to support.

a couple of things on my mind...

these photos are
(via never happened)

a small, but not too small bag from maria cornejo...

and another made from recycled rubber - textural, a bit masculine, very very cool.

these are just beautiful and unexpected. a lovely combination.

after having recently experienced a bit too much american daytime television, i find this little poster especially interesting and slightly amusing.

and while i know some might like kate spade...
i happen to love jack spade.
and the new website makes me happy (and makes me want to buy things...bravo). i love the little parachuting man on the scroll bars and the way the products are photographed (the weirdest things bring me joy, i swear) and even the sort of odd things, like the jack spade readymades. quirky and fun. another lovely combination.

i'm a little obsessed with paine's balsam fir incense.
who wouldn't want their home to smell all warm and full of pine?
you can buy it direct from paine's or at labour and wait.
of course now i have the perfect reason to grab one of those totally perfect design im dorf incense burners too.

i am so in love with these super soft, super elegant, super warm knit alpaca blankets by andrea tung over at making things. they come in two sizes, a handful of color choices and would make really lovely gifts.
i've sent one to a good friend and added one to my wishlist...
