cute + tiny. Mon, 24 Nov 2008 21:49:11 +0000

I love the pillows and things at Tiny Decor. This stay-at-home-mom run shop offers modern designs and uses organic fabrics, bamboo filling and non-toxic inks in her line of goods {hurrah for being green!}. I especially love the big floor pillows. I’d love to stack up a few of those in our house…they look so cushy and I love the patterns. Tiny Decor also has shop with green nursery items…it’s really quite lovely! Check it out here.

unfold. Wed, 17 Sep 2008 19:23:00 +0000

The Sweet Unfolding is an adorable shop for brides-to-be. If you or someone you know is going bridezilla looking for the perfect little additions to their wedding, then send them to this little online shop, and they are sure to find what they need. You can also find some nice eco-friendly items, and gifts too! They also participate in Kiva, which is a site that gives micro-loans to those in need. I love to see businesses giving back!


shop locally. Fri, 01 Aug 2008 12:00:00 +0000

Just wanted to write a little blurb about my favorite local clothing store, Camden. Clothes shopping is slim pickins in Chicago’s western burbs, let me tell you! So I was so happy to have this little shop open up! It’s as stylish as any city store…I can always find something cute and the gals who work there are always helpful {without being pushy}.

be a collector. Fri, 13 Jun 2008 13:42:00 +0000

Oh my, how I love this shop. Three Potato Four is the perfect mix of vintage and new…from their refurbished 1930’s typewriter (the coolest thing ever) to handbags and mugs, pillows and vases…everything selected with a fantastic sense of style.

redecorate. Wed, 21 May 2008 20:29:00 +0000

I have a new favorite online store…RianRae. What an amazing collection of goods. The chandelier is SO fabulous, I can hardly stand it. I love it’s elegant yet “bohemian vibe” (that’s how RianRae’s owner, Jeni Crawford described it). That vibe runs through the whole store…it was difficult for me to choose what items to show here.
