The internet is a vast and astonishing place

You can find sites on just about anything. I stumbled upon this site today. Did you know that there are 2 trillion ways to tie your shoes? Well, now you do.



So sad to see color week end. But at least it's ending on my favorite color!


Superbitus Money Box

Cross-posted at 2Modern.

Man, I am just astonished by the brilliance of this idea. The Superbitus Money Box, is a "one-piece bomb-shaped ceramic money box. Supplied with a white marker to write the purpose of savings." Created by a team of designers under the art direction of Artemy Lebedev, the Superbitus is the solution to the problem of "giving meaning to the breaking of a money box". Preorder here. It's back in stock in September, which gives you a little time to figure out what you're saving for.

Lulu Weddings

Choosing a wedding photographer can be daunting. Heck, planning the whole wedding is definitely daunting! But, for me, aside from the food, the photographer was the biggest decision. This is the person who is going to, in many ways, define my memories of this big day. So I wanted to be sure to pick a person who has the same vision and asthetic as I do. But perhaps it's the flowers or the venue, that is the most important thing to you. Enter Lulu Weddings, a consortium of female wedding photographers with impeccable taste, who have created a website that includes all their favorite wedding vendors that they work with.

Voted Seattle’s Best New Wedding Website by Seattle Bride Magazine in 2005, this site is not for profit and the referrals are based on their personal experiences with the other vendors. This is an indispensable guide for the bride or groom to be. Keep your sanity and go with Lulu Wedding's recommendations!

p.s. I went with Starr Samuelson as my photographer and absolutely love love love my wedding pictures. She was so great to work with, put me at ease and snapped every shot I requested as well as some precious candids. I highly recommend her!


is a Seattle Pick! I'm super proud to be recognized by this local site. They keep the whole city up to date with what's new and cool and generally awesome. If you haven't already subscribed to their friday emails, click on over and do so!

Sabrina Love Handbags

There are new purses up over at the shop. I'm so excited about them. Created by a former costume designer and stylist, these soft and supple leather clutches are simply sophisticated. Perfect for a fancy night out, lunch downtown, or as a grab-and-go addition to any outfit. I love them all - but here are a few of my fav's:

And they all have pink suede inside for added cuteness:


Blacks, browns and whites

Fabric Find

I stumbled upon Esty seller Azalea Studio and just had to share this shop with you. I'm always on the lookout for cute, unique and affordable fabrics for my various projects and Azalea Studio is a gem. Coming to you straight outta rural Missouri, stay-at-home momma, Azalea, has got a great eye for cool design and stocks her shop with Japanese imports and colorful and sweet florals you're not likely to find at your local Joann's.
