The Want List

I love to window shop. The best part about it is that you don’t have to take it all home, but sometimes- just sometimes- you find a few things that are so special you just have to make room.

Enter, The Want List.

1. Teak measuring spoons 2. Classic Chemex Coffee Brewer 3. Dansk Teak Ice Bucket 4. Ego Coffee Cup and Saucer 5. Heath Ceramics House Numbers in Yellow

two thoughts

There are two thoughts, circling through my head.

Followed shortly by…

This, my friends, is why I can’t make a decorating decision to save my life!

vintage love :: gingham

I came across these vintage cotton napkins a while back, and have been quietly keeping them to myself. However, they’re too cute not to share!

I really don’t need to add to my collection of vintage cloth napkins, so I decided to make them available in the shop.

More delightful gingham goodness!

currently obsessed with…

The Croc Pile!

This is one of those items that I definitely do not need, but oh if I could find a reason to buy it… I would. Endless hours of entertainment– I can see it now.

Just stack ’em up!

daily .img :: rain, rain

As you can imagine, it doesn’t rain much on Los Angeles. So when it rains- as they say- it pours.

This weekend and the weekend before, we’ve had just one day’s worth of downpours. They last for a few hours, and then the sky clears, and we’re back to sunshine. Mostly.

Times like these, I need to bring a little sunshine indoors. A few fresh flowers in my favorite colors? Check. An amazing turquoise Bauer vase? Check. Some Awesome Bears and friends to make you smile? Double check.

An added bonus? I’ve been sourcing and adding to the the vintage shop tons of amazing vintage kitchenware in lovely Spring colors- Lots of yellows, turquoise, pale greens and even a dash of pink here and there. Head over to Vint and see what’s new!

Happy Tuesday, all!

Today is a Good Day

I spotted this happy reminder a couple weekends ago, in Emeryville. Brought to you by the duo behind STUDIOPATRO in San Francisco.

I think even Ice Cube could agree that this tea towel is a must:

Today was a Good Day

orange, aqua, white..

Current color obsession: Orange, white, aqua. Can I redesign my whole house, now?

A look into… Cleveland Art

One of the hidden gems on the East Side: Cleveland Art, vintage and industrial salvage.

There are days when I think I could live in there.


I’ve been missing my craftiness a little, lately. There was a time when I wanted nothing more than to crack into a big pile of vintage fabric and felt, and just create away. That urge has pretty much left me in the past year or so, but I know that I need to get back to it. I know that if I were cranking out piles of Minor Thread’s California Love pillows, my neighbors would be in bliss! A select few of them own some, and they always tell me they want more.

Soon, I need to carve out some time, break out the scissors, thread the needle and get to work.

The past week or so has been incredible for thrifting. Is it a post-holiday clean-out of everyone’s houses? People moving on to bigger and better things? Whatever it is, I’ve been happily cleaning up the discards.



These mugs and these place mats were found on two different thrift trips, but I really love the way they look together. I can just imagine having hot cocoa next to a roaring fire in the Pacific Northwest– in the 70’s, of course.
