queen bee.

October 20, 2008

I love the cuteness that is Queen Bee Creations. Portland, Oregon based Queen Bee {and Chickpea Baby} uses recycled wool and reclaimed banners for many of their bags and wallets….so great! They offer pillows and aprons as well as cute tees for the wee ones. I’m also inspired by the owner, Rebecca Pearcy’s, story about how her business evolved {see her video here}. Thank you to Modish for finding this.

indie joy.

From across the pond, Betty Joy has some sweet little accessories, housewares and things. Everything is handmade from various designers and super cute! Oh, and she’ll ship from her little cottage in the north of England to you in the states!

get a tattoo.

In a drastic departure from sweet necklaces with flowers (from my last post)…I’m totally loving these tattoo-inspired belts by Jon Wye. I’m thinking jeans and a tee-shirt with one of these funky belts…choose the buckle to match. He also sells wrist cuffs, and some great tees on his site. Check it out!


wear many hats.

June 16, 2008

I get teased for my hats. Mostly by my husband…but I put up with the grief because I love wearing them. Piper and Paisley is my newest find. The shape is an easy one for anyone to wear, and goes with just about anything. Her hats are made in Montana with fun fabrics, and are custom sized…perfect for those of us with an extra-big melon :) Check out her shop!


go with the flow.

Another new favorite. Flowie has bags, pillows, scarves and table linens all designed by textile designer Yaling Hou. I love her organic style…and her floral print “gerrie” is fantastic. a must have.
