These gorgeous wood pieces from Wind & Willow Home are equal parts functional object – from wood bowls to spoons to planters – and absolute work of art. Each piece is hand dipped in food-safe rubber in colors inspired by the season. Wind & Willow Home just released their Winter 2014 collection, which also includes a couple of copper and silver leaf bowls – and a whole new line of marbled textile goods!

Book Preview: Make & Give

I was absolutely thrilled to receive a review copy of the amazing new book Make & Give by Erin Jang and Steph Hung – I’ve been looking forward to this book for a long time! I’m a longtime fan of Erin’s design work and Steph is an amazingly talented stylist, so you know a collaboration between these two talented ladies was just bound to be good. I also admire Erin’s ability to come up with (and execute!) the most amazing party themes, from birthday parties to baby showers. Erin and Steph designed the book themselves with an emphasis on bright colors and a modern layout – and the results couldn’t be prettier!

Make and Give Cover OSBP Book Preview: Make & Give

Make & Give features 35 modern and meaningful craft projects for a variety of everyday occasions – not just birthdays and holidays. I love that the projects can be completed by crafters of all skill levels with commonly used materials! It was hard to pick favorites from the 35 projects, but I really love the Custom Growlers and Progressive Date projects – such fun ideas!

Inspired By: Cats

If you’ve met me in person – or browsed through my Instagram stream – you probably know that I’m kind of a crazy cat lady. My husband and I adopted two cats when we first started living together, and over the years we’ve rescued a few more, bringing our current total to five – not to mention the foster cats that went on to permanent homes and the friendly semi-feral alley cats that we keep an eye on in our neighborhood. So for any fellow cat people out there, here’s a quick little round up of some favorite feline-themed goodies!

2. Ladyfingers Letterpress knows the true measure of love

3. YES. The perfect tote bag by Emily McDowell

4. Catbird has a whole section dedicated to cat-inspired jewelry!

5. Such a great birthday card from Hello!Lucky

6. This card from Greenwich Letterpress would be perfect for my husband

7. I love this newsprint gift wrap collaboration between Leah Goren and Knot + Bow (also available in the black cat pattern)!

8. Gold foil cats (also available in silver and copper!) from Hartland Brooklyn

9. Yay for fellow cat ladies from The Good Twin Co.

10. I think I need this ceramic ring dish by Up in the Air Somewhere exclusively for Catbird

Wedding Stationery Inspiration: Camping in the Woods

Fall, to me, always brings thoughts of camping, roasting marshmallows, and rustic details. You might not think of planning your wedding around a theme that involves getting dirty and functioning with just the essentials. But that is what can make it so fun! Surprise your guests with simple pleasures that they enjoyed as kids or still do with their families. Take a cue from the treats, the crafting, and the quirky details from your own camping adventures. And if you just love the idea – but need a little inspiration – I rounded up some of my favorite stationery pieces to get you started! – Lauren
