This hanging planter is super functional (no drips), and it’s very easy on the eyes. I’d like a few, there’s no such thing as too many house plants.
This little print by Jamie Shelman has real charisma. Plus, it makes me want to paint.
Apparatus Flake Lamp
Warm lighting is nice, especially during winter. And the softened geometric shape of this lamp is quite graceful.

Just the thought of someone lovingly hand constructing your warm winter coat makes it all the more cozy, doesn’t it?
The Simple Grid Locking Shelves
by El Dot
A very elegant shelf to frame your pretty things.
Necklush – black and blue
I love this Necklush…it looks like it would keep you warm without too much bulk.
Helmet Hair – screenprint
by Kate Banazi
Kate Banazi is one of my favorite artists working today. And, it’s a statistical fact that examining the careful color separations and layers in a hand pulled screen print will improve your life.
Guiding Light – Toy Camera Photo Print
This photograph reminds me of early morning train rides.
The Porter (in provincial blue)
Moop bags are utilitarian, yet beautiful. I’ll take two.
As Good As It Gets – archival print
by Leah Giberson
Leah Giberson is an artist that I’ve long admired for her unique way of combining painting, collage, and photography (sometimes even embroidery!). Her subject matter is equally intriguing, always suggesting a human presence, but never showing the form. The hedges in this one make me smile.
