I have been in love with Rebecca of Sown‘s work for a long time. But, because she just can’t seem to keep anything in her shop (she sells out all the time!) I haven’t been able to feature her. She recently stocked up again, so hurry up and check them out!
Rebecca makes the coolest pillows from vintage feed bags and the occasional modern printed fabric. You all know I’m a typography nut so I especially love the ones with writing on them, but the color choice and modern composition makes each one a gem.
So, I’m addicted to Project Runway. And although Season 5 wrapped last week, I still try to catch the reruns when I can. And, I know no one actually liked Kenley, but no one can deny that the girl had serious personal style. So in the spirit of Kenley’s style, I give you my new favorite accessory: The Feather Headband.
The ones above are from VieModern out of Cali, and the one below is by A Farmer’s Daughter from Vancouver. They’re sweeping the continent, people!

Lately when I’m printing a run of cards or prints, I’ve been trying to stretch my ink and paper scraps a bit farther (I recently figured out just how much money I’ve spent on this venture and it scared me!) so I’ve started making gift tags. It’s great because now everyone can have a little taste of a limited edition piece or a custom order (the purple ornaments were ordered as a custom printing for my sister) and I’m doing something worthwhile with the extra paper that I can’t bear to throw away. I’ll be including a couple tags in each order from now until the holidays (or until I run out). Hope you enjoy!

I can’t imagine it ever gets very chilly in San Diego, and yet some very cute knitwear and yarn comes out of the city (check out little grey cat designs and oanad56).
Fringe is another such example. I love the originality of Dennice’s designs as well as her color selection, especially this bright olive in the cowl below.
