Bits and Pieces
Random thoughts and images on a very chilly Friday afternoon.
Steven makes awesome journals from foam, rivets and magnets, rubber, and little charms. They were so damn clever that I had to get a few for the shop! The magnet clasp is genius, as is the little image tucked inside, a slice of NY life taken on his cameraphone. I have picked out a cheerful flower pattern, one with a coffee charm (for your discriminating tasting notes) and one with the classic subway token - a nice welcome to the city gift.
Sian brought Ollie by to pick up work by another Olle...by the way the Olle Eksell book is way out of stock again. More are coming from Japan but it will be at least a month.
Polli sent a crazy cool laser-cut jewelry stand/art piece. This is a bad photo but there are cockatoos and some little Australian critters hiding in the trees.
This is the owl onesie from Ferdinand which I need to put in the webshop. I am stocking the size 6-12 mos. which is good for a newborn gift, I think.
Polli's stainless steel mobile in the window. We had a little sun today, it was nice.
Restocked: black glass sake sets by Sugahara, keyaki wood teacups, and cute hats by Elasticco.
Also, Donna of re-surface brought one very very limited edition A-light over, it's in the window now, and has a pink/mauve ceramic base. Looks great. She *also* brought by a pendant light, which I'm dying to install in the window. For those of you who love her A-lights but want something a bit bigger, this lamp (roughly 5" diam by 11") takes a 75w bulb and hangs from a 15" long cord (she includes a hardwire kit too). It will look awesome above your kitchen table, perhaps, or in an entryway. Pictures soon, email me for more info in the meantime.
