✚ Bright green and black vintage wool blanket from Hindsvik
With any luck we’ll be heading out of wool blanket territory soon (28°F in the third week of March? Ugh!), but you know me and blankets. I really love the intense green of this vintage striped one from Hindsvik. Bright green looks so great with pale wood and black/white interiors!
✚ snug.abc poster from Snug Studio
The shapes that make up the alphabet in this poster from Snug Studio are based on the shape of classic building blocks—like the ones I’m playing with in this photo! The next time I know someone who’s having a kid, this is what they’re getting from me.
✚ Plus Sign vinyl wall decals from UrbanWalls
I don’t really think of myself as being a wall decal person, but these guys from UrbanWalls are really appealing to me. They come in a whole bunch of color options, including GOLD! Can you imagine a bathroom covered in gold crosses on black walls? Swanky!! Or pale gray walls with white crosses? So pretty.
✚ Hand printed Mountain leggings and Mountain pillow
I couldn’t choose between the leggings and the pillow, so I went with both. To be honest, though, I kind of want everything in the Thief & Bandit shop. (p.s. They have another shop full of amazing kids’ stuff, too!)
✚ Festoon ceiling light set from Raw Dezign
This is such a simple idea, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen it done before. This string of ceiling-mounted lights from Raw Dezign comes with hooks for hanging and a choice of 13 different colors of braided cloth cord. You can contact them directly if you’re interested in a different length, too.

✚ Geometrical Illusion pouch from CORIUMI
I love how delicate this pouch looks despite the geometric print. Big zippered pouches like this are great for organizing stuff inside of larger bags, and I can’t seem to stop buying them! Fancy people who go to fancy events (I’m not one of those people) could even use this one as a clutch, too. Have you ever looked at the CORIUMI shop? There are all kinds of nice things for sale in all different colors.
✚ Collages and prints from Edu Barba
I first spotted Spanish artist Edu Barba’s work hanging in the kitchen at Manhattan Nest. A bunch of them have a Dadaist sensibility that’s really appealing to me. Three is my favorite number and I’m a sucker for soft textures and subtle geometric forms, so this guy is coming home to live with me. I have a feeling more will follow.
✚ Color block iPhone cases from Blissful Case
Yeah, these have Anna written all over them, I know. These two are my favorites, but there are a bunch of cute, reasonably-priced options in the Blissful Case shop. I like having a few “clothing” options for my iPhone—less for protection than for fun, I guess.
✚ Brass himmeli mobile from Veronika Maria
I saved this himmeli mobile for last because I’m completely obsessed with it. Traditionally these Finnish mobiles are made of straw and used as Christmas decorations, but this one is built from thin brass tubing and would really look incredible hanging all year round. It’s not in my budget, alas, but I can still admire it from afar. If you buy it, send me a picture if it in your house so I can feel envious!
p.s. Last year I wrote about himmeli made of stirrer-straws from AMradio over at Honey Kennedy. I love them, too!
