labour & wait

One of my favorite sites for housewares is Labour & Wait. Left to right, top to bottom: canvas folio bag, large enamel jug, enamel ladle set, natural rope doorstop. Their shop is in London or you can purchase by order form for shipping within the UK.

My sister sent me a link to this great bookshelf. What a neat solution for a lack of bookshelf space! By Levitate Architects in the UK.

retro cuba

With Cuba in the news these days, I thought I'd post about Corinna Radcliffe's photographically printed fashion and home accessories, found on her website. Her patterns include nostalgia-inducing shots of Havana, which you can order on cushions, bags, clocks, lampshades, and other fare.

penguin miniatures

From graphic design collective Evening Tweed: "A book-arts experiment - new miniature novels housed inside their literary parents. Future books in the series include 'Littler Women', 'Gulliver's Travel' and 'None Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest'. Featured in Graphic 12: Customise This." So cute!

I really love Cavallini & Co., so I was excited to see their new notebook designs. Paper Source is a great place to find a lot of their products, including wrapping paper, labels, rubber stamps, and notecards.

i hate perfume

Picture 2.png
notcot posted last week on this neat site, I hate perfume. Their perfumes have awesome names like Mr. Hulot's Holiday and Russian Caravan Tea. I wish I could smell them through the computer screen...

william-wayne & co.

After leaving the office today I discovered William-Wayne & Co.'s lovely gifts and housewares on Lexington Ave. in New York. Aside from the beautiful serving tray and coral plates, they also had a fabulous summer-weight quilt with a coral and turquoise pattern that was almost irresistible.

Dutch department store HEMA has a really cute website, where all the products tip over, crash into each other, and cause general disaster. I'm not a huge fan of flash sites but this one is definitely worth a look.

bill murray

Following a tip from notcot I bought this very awesome Bill Murray print by artist Jeff Boyes. It arrived in the mail a few days ago and it's much better in person. Strangely, after I bought the print, I realized it looks just like my fiance's friend Emilio.

I just discovered Sheila Bridges' nestmaker via a guestblog post on designsponge by housemartin. What a lovely site! Her latest newsletter confirms my suspicion that suzani is the next ikat.

whippet grey


I hardly know where to start... Everthing about Whippet Grey is fascinating. I love their website, their catalog, their merch. Above is a sampling of my favorites; the winter '07 catalog is available for download from the web. Clockwise from top left: fine tea porcelain light, heart pendants, felt lavender hearts, bath salts, pewter goblets, pirate pond yacht, lead woodpidgeons (male and female), egg cosies, linen numbered tea towels, oiseaux du paradis, set of five wooden spinning tops, horn teaspoons.



New from Phaidon, this recipe book features 160 recipes by Babette, Guadalupian chef and owner of the famous restaurant Le Table de Babette in Paris. Creole cuisine, a blend of French, Spanish, and African traditions, is featured in vibrant, mouth watering pictures and easy to follow recipes.
