art is in the arctic's painted stones →
Ooh…stones painted to look like sea urchins! Still natural, but hand-adorned by artist Amy Komar, you can touch them with abandon and they won’t crunch and disintegrate. So pretty. ($18 - $150)
studio snowpuppe's origami lamps →
Back from a little vacation, feeling rested, I wanted to start off with a bang. Studio Snowpuppe’s Origami Lampshades are the real deal - the style oft-replicated in design shops, but mass-produced and plastic. Take home the handmade version, it packs flat (origami!) and will immediately transform your space. I think Noguchi would approve. (From $49).
pooka queen millinery →
If only Pooka Queen lived in NYC - I’d beg a visit to her studio to try literally everything on. Sculpted, elegant felt forms adorn otherwise simple headbands, hats and fascinators…you could wear a paper bag with one and look gorgeous. (From $38)
sara aires' fiber art jewelry →
I appreciate talent for color-coordination. As someone who works with enamels, I understand that there’s no substitute for pairing the right shade of salmon with a complementary periwinkle blue.

In need of a new side table but want something neither mass-produced and boring, nor high end and extravagant? Modern Arks collects vintage liquor shipping crates, adds legs and voila - recycles them into funky little side tables and plant stands (from $245).
briana taylor's art prints →
Briana Taylor has a selection of lovely artwork on her site, but I keep returning to the prints of her luminously painted liquids ($35). Hovering somewhere between realism - for indeed they are realistic, abstract expressionism and cubism, they are interesting and beautiful to look at.
egletruika's handknits →
Soft colors, paired with light, ethereal patterns, Egletruika’s collection of handmade knit clothes and accessories are enchanting (from $54).
rich in craft's antler handbag →
Best handbag handle EVER! Rich in Craft’s Limited Edition Antler Handbags ($600) are fully handmade in the USA - that’s right folks, those antlers are castings. And the bags themselves, with quilted wool in earth tones and one sea tone, lined in champagne silk. Fabulous.
