Loving...

This seriously cute top... I'm thinking it could fall into that work (with a black skirt) and weekend (with jeans) category.

+ it was produced by Thanapara Swallows, "a Fair Trade organisation that provides work for over 200 women in rural Bangladesh, and profits help cover the costs of the village school for 300 children", which makes it even better...


This room. Love the wall of books, love the minimal furniture, love the cozy rug... sort of a modern library. Perfection. via the fab Anne


This lovely, happy girl at the jazz-age* dance party via the sartorialist....

* as a side note, if I could live in any era (other than now), I'd pick the jazz-age... what would you pick??


Hadley Holliday's fantastic work via Jennifer...


This insanely chic mother/daughter duo. I would happily wear either outfit (and I might actually be leaning toward the daughter's...that trench coat, oh my). via (the also insanely chic) michelle...


Betsy Dunlap's beautiful invites...


Oh and I'm smitten with this tattoo she created too. Stunning.


This genius little modern playhouse. A little bigger and it could be my outdoor office...


This perfect little ruffled kid's cardi. Especially love that shot of neon. I'd wear that bad boy in that dark grey...just sayin.

I LOVE the Hadley Holiday piece, it's fantastic! That tattoo is actually pretty tempting too. How pretty that would be as your children's names? Got me thinking...

I love your collection of things - thanks for sharing!

hmmm... maybe the frontier era- county, farms, good wholesome food, cowboys. [the abundant clothing and lack of air conditioning though - not so much:).

I'm so happy you posted about Betsy Dunlap's gorgeous calligraphy! I remember seeing her work somewhere and I've been desperate to find her. Love your entire list, btw...

I have a Bhalo dress and I love it... and I keep looking at their tops too. I say go for it. They're really beautifully made and you'll adore it.

Thank you for the introduction to Hadley Holliday - amazing work!!

Not usually a tattoo person but that is beautiful! Love the script and the names.
