3 pairs


we all know how i feel about turquoise, and these 3 pairs of earrings are all on sale from alice li! buy handmade! woo!

james and tilla waters


james does all of the throwing, and tilla is mainly focused on surface quality.

james and tilla waters are a couple that have fully collaborated with their ceramic wares, and i am truly impressed and inspired. but it is their work that has without a doubt caught my full attention. the soft oranges and the cloudy grays are my tones right now . . .

inspired by


i was totally inspired by this photo the instant i saw it.

i love seeing an artist in their workspace, even though that isn’t what this photograph is about! (oops!) its kind of nice when anybody can look at a photograph and take away something completely different from everyone else.

the inspiration is ever flowing


the best things >> 11


i know i’ve talked about ban.do before, but it is now officially one of my best things. this accessories shop based out of los angeles, started out with just handmade vintage headbands in 2008, and has pretty much become an overnight success, now making statement pieces for girls like me all over the world. hearts, flowers, sequins and pink galore, the pieces in this shop are so much fun! my favorites are without a doubt the pom pom flowers. one in every color, please!!

head on over and shop ban.do for yourself!

farm fresh

both images from my instragram . . . you can follow right over here!

farrah sit planters


these planters by farrah sit would be perfect hanging up in the kitchen for indoor herbs. i sure wish i had time even for an indoor garden this summer. but all of these spring months of daydreaming about the perfect garden will someday lead to the perfect garden, i just know it! thanks for sharing these, farrah!

tell me, what are you planting this spring??

graphic notes


i miss being a student for a number of reasons, one reason being that i miss having a need for several notebooks at once. like these graphic and colorful notebooks from RibbonSquirrel.


a reminder.


just what i needed to see . . .

i spent the last 6 days with luke‘s family in the most remote spot in iowa (really). no cell phone service, no computer- – it actually felt really good to step away from all of that.

i was inspired by this post from  bri emery, and i’ve always been a believer in picking up a little something to remind you of your travels. while i have many things to remind me of my lovely time spent with luke’s family, its always nice to have that one little piece that sits at your desk with you, or on top of your nightstand. i picked this little bowl up in decorah, iowa. i love the crackle glaze inside, and it has the most perfect little foot! you know how i love picking up new little trinkets! its going to be a great little catch-all for my jewels . . .
