oh, you pretty things.

patterns, well-designed items, vintage clothing and housewares, handmade beauties, textiles, fabrics, old records, mod furniture, thrift scores, stuffed creatures, toys, and just generally lovely things.

day-lab is a website that was launched by the beautiful amy shutt in 2005. it is a shop filled with jewelry/housewares/clothing/etc. made by extremely talented independent designers. a really awesome aspect of this site is that each month, a percentage of the profits go to the world society for the protection of animals. i bought two pillows from them right when i was moving to portland and i love them, even though they have been dirtied up by my cats and year-old son.


i came across this website today: sprout home. really great household items.

i would love those cloud decals in my son's room!

i have a deep love for really lovely simple-colored screenprinted designs, especially ones featuring animals like deer and birds. here are a few from designer jane buck of foxy & winston.
