chalk board wall decals.



I love this idea- Chalk Board Wall Decals. They seem like they would be great for people living in apartments, since they just stick and peel off without leaving any damage. So great for to-do lists or calenders. ($58 from See Jane Work)

pattern spotting.

I have been seeing quite a few beautiful patterns around lately on all sorts of objects, linens, and artwork. I always admire a good pattern.


allyson mellberg : illustration.



I am quite sure I have seen Allyson Melberg's soft sculptures at some point, but I have only recently seen her eye-catching illustrations, found on her flickr photostream. I love the simple neutral colors and the poses of her figures.

victoria pearson.

I really like the bright and fresh images of photographer Victoria Pearson. I especially love that all her photographs are categorized by color, which I always adore.



1925 coffee & tea service.



If I were to dream up the perfect tea set, I think it would come pretty close to the "1925" coffee/tea service from Artedona. These pieces were originally designed by Christofle back in 1925 and feature stunning geometric shapes and art deco style. They are quite pricey, but so very gorgeous. ($616-$1,497 each)
