pretty and petite: vitriini containers by Anu Penttinen.

September 28th, 2010 · Comments Off on pretty and petite: vitriini containers by Anu Penttinen.

It’s only September, and my mental Christmas list is already taking on a life of its own. Add to it, these Vitriini containers designed by Anu Penttinen from Iittala. Perfect for sitting atop a dresser or filling with gems and baubles and reasonably priced, too — $69 for the large container and $47 for the small. Available at my […]

September 27th, 2010 · Comments Off on make it through monday: no. 1.

So, each Monday, we’re showcasing something that we’ve made, with the hope that it inspires you . . . I used to sneak and watch My So Called Life on MTV. I didn’t quite understand that […]

in an attempt to fight the end of summer…

September 25th, 2010 · 4 Comments

I’d like to take a moment to stare the chill of fall right in the eyes and boldly deny the irrelevance of popsicles at this time of year.  After all, today may not reach 60 degrees, but yesterday Chicago threw me a curveball landing in the high 80s.  Bottom line,  I’m feeling confused and torn […]

September 22nd, 2010 · Comments Off on add this modern cuckoo clock to your wall.

Christie Bassil’s Half Time clock is a modern take on the whimsical cuckoo variety. And it’s painfully sweet. Just look at that little bird and try not to crack a grin! What a charmer —  a moderately expensive charmer that is. For just $248 he will call your wall home. Available at  Gretel.

ming makes cupcakes.

September 21st, 2010 · Comments Off on ming makes cupcakes.

I can bake. I’ve made successful lemon poppy seed cookies. But do I enjoy it? Eh. I would rather take the clumpy spoon into the den and watch 2 movies rather than oversee a successful tray of something sweet.
