Seven Amazing Ceramic Artists

Over the past few weeks I’ve developed a major thing for ceramics. I’ve always had a soft spot for pretty plates and mugs, but as I’ve discovered more independent artists making hand crafted ceramic goods that soft spot has grown into a full on obsession. Their Instagram accounts also tend to be some of my favorites, fueling the OMG I have to have that right now please feelings even further. Today I thought I’d highlight a few favorites!

Today I love…

I used to do these kinds of posts all the time back in the day – and I kind of miss them! So today I thought I’d share a few of the things are inspiring me these days or that have caught my eye over the last couple of weeks:

Today I Love: Summer Inspiration from Oh So Beautiful Paper

1. Mini copper planters from Julia Kostreva

2. These DIY printable party invitations from Martha Stewart are an oldie but a goodie – and so perfect for summer!

3. Cantaloupe-Basil Granita

4. Tilly baguette leather clutch with scallop detail by Matine

5. This scallop necklace is so pretty (and I apparently have a thing for scallop details these days)

6. We have this amazing ship kite from Haptic Lab in white in Sophie’s room and we LOVE it! It’s made by artisans in Bali from locally-sourced bamboo and nylon – but I also love the canary yellow version!

Small + Delicate

Happy Monday everyone!  And happy Passover to those of you celebrating this week.  As we do nearly every year, we'll be going to a seder tonight with some very good friends and I just can't wait for this evening to arrive.  So in the meantime, I thought I'd help pass the time with these beautiful necklaces from Stone + Honey and Polli:

I don't usually wear a lot of gold jewelry, but lately I've been drawn to small, delicate, and intricate gold necklaces like the ones above.  The honeycomb pattern from Stone + Honey is definitely on my wishlist, but I also love the whimsy of Polli's tea time necklace.

Fall 2010 Fashion Inspiration

I've been loving all the coverage of the NY fall fashion shows this week.  It feels a bit strange to be so enamored of collections for NEXT fall when I'm so busy wishing for spring to arrive, but these looks are just too pretty to resist:
