Botanical Notebooks

Ever since Rifle Paper Co. offered up a sneak peek of their upcoming notebooks and stationery a few months ago, I’ve been chomping at the bit. And as usual when it comes to Rifle, I’m even more impressed than I’d originally anticipated. Neither is for sale just yet, but you can get your pre-order in so you’ll be one of the firsts! Looking forward to filling my set with my declining handwriting.


Pinhole Cameras: A DIY Guide

An interestingbook from Chris Keeney that shows you how to turn regular household items into rad pinhole cameras. That oatmeal container? Yup. This Kleenex box? Uh-huh. Hoping to experiment on my own sometime soon!


Pedra Coasters

I can distinctly picture the set of brown agate coasters that sat on our coffee table when I was a kid. I hated them. And now I can’t seem to get enough of the stuff, my how times change. Although I’m certain the jewel tones don’t hurt either. (via Alice)



Not to sound full of myself, but I’m pretty sure this is the be all, end all of popsicle roundups. There’s a little something for everyone: the foodies, the purists, the ones who prefer frozen yogurt, the ones who prefer a little alcohol, everyone. Tweny-five options to be exact. The post I did last summer on the cold guys was one of DC’s most viewed ever, so I thought you’d all be up for another round – was I right?

Win It: MOO Stickers



It’s been awhile since I’ve run a giveaway. But I’ve been a huge fan of MOO and their clever pint-sized MiniCards since their infancy, so when they contacted me about hosting one for their latest and greatest product of course I said yes.

Introducing Moo’s new round and rectangular stickers! MOO’s unique printing technology ‘printfinity’ allows you to place a different image or design on every single sticker. Upload your company logo, photos, designs, whatever. And if you’re at a loss MOO has plenty of their own you can choose from. These stickers are so versatile you can use them for product labels, name tags, business cards, photo stickers, literally anything your mind can think of!

And lucky you, five of you will win a set of 100 stickers (50 of each new shape)!


How to Enter:

1. Post a comment below and tell us what you plan to use your MOO stickers for. The more creative, the more fun, the better.
2. Enter a valid email address so we are able to contact you.

Five winners will be chosen from the comments by MOO and myself next Tuesday, July 5, 2011 and notified. Good luck!


Amorphous Nesting Tables

Drooling over these pretty nesting tables this morning. I’m not usually into bright colors when it comes to my furniture, but in this case I think that’s just what makes the tables so fantastic. Originally designed by Ercol in 1956, they’re perfectly retro yet modern.



As a child of the 80s and a designer of now, I’m very appreciative of Lox+Savvy’s bold, graphic, neon approach to their line. It make me smile to see that while things grow and evolve, in some ways they ultimately stay the same. (via Eat Drink Chic)
