I adore these ceramic garlands by OUI, a collection of simple, thoughtful products made by Angela Hodgkinson.

All ceramic products are one-of-a-kind and made by hand.

They would make amazing wedding garlands, lovely home décor or unique Christmas gifts.  She also has a beautiful collection of scented soy candles + ceramic candles.

Show some love for Small Business Saturday 🙂

The Madewell Twins

I love the Madewell Holiday 2011 catalogue.  It just arrived in the mail this week and It’s full of Christmas gift ideas; things I want and things I want to get for all of you.  But my FAVORITE thing about this holiday catalogue is …

THE TWINS.

I was so happy to see Madewell featuring cool twins!  Don’t they look awesome?  As a twin myself, I can already tell all of them apart.  It’s a substantial gift.

Nicki and Cassi are featured in a Madewell Musings video and OH MY GOD they are sitting the exact same way in the still frame.  Joy and I do this all the time.  Ah, twin commiseration.

They talk about their travel-inspired style, peppered with pearls and tattoos.

They are really making me miss living with Joy and sharing everything in our closets.  DOUBLE wardrobe.

Anthropologie, darling.

It’s the holiday season! Well, I’ve been shopping more than the U.S. average, according to mint.com. I would say slap me, but you can’t fight crazy with crazy.

Last week I was just browsing. Sort of. I lost my way + wandered over to Anthropologie’s site where I discovered the sweetest stop-motion animation ~ which has officially made it to my all time favorites of this genre, second only to Rudolph, The Island of Misfit Toys.

Little ornaments called “The Branch Bunch” come to life as you hover the mouse over their images. Holiday spirit magic.


{just popping up to say, happy holiday!}


{my igloo is your igloo}


{…gifts rule}


{happy, merry, JOY: pass it on}


{…the eggnog effect}

Oh! This is wonderfully done.

Here’s another stop-motion piece for Anthropologie, designed by Creative Director Simon James Lee.

An artist like Mr. Lee knows better than anyone the priceless look that can only come from the use of real objects + photographs.

These fuzzy feelings make me want to buy cute things.
