an awesome book of thanks.

November 3rd, 2010 · Comments Off on an awesome book of thanks.

I’m not quite sure how – but information about a cute children’s book by Dallas Clayton some how entered my inbox.

Andrew Carnegie made it a point to collect art. He believed that by supporting emerging and established artists, he would be building a collection of the “old masters of tomorrow.” Granted, Carnegie was a wealthy man with a bottomless wallet to throw at painters and sculptors alike. It’s hard to start a collection when you […]

Do you watch Man Shops Globe on The Sundance Channel? If not, you’re only missing out on a peek into the coolest job ever. Keith Johnson works as the buyer-at-large for Anthropologie, which means it’s his job to trek across the globe and acquire objects and one-of-a-kind pieces for the bobo retailer.

papeterie poulain by decole: the wooden camera tape dispenser.

August 6th, 2010 · 4 Comments

When I saw this tape dispenser I nearly squealed in delight. It’s by Decole and is from the company’s stationary series called “Papeterie Poulain.” Each item (envelope template, pin tray, stamps, etc.) looks perfectly antiqued — as if it were salvaged from an early 1900’s Parisian stationary store. So fun!
