This Made My Afternoon: Squibnocket Cards Available Online

I was catching up on my blog reading over lunch today and I came across a post on Shelterrific about Squibnocket Cards. The bloggers over there have finally unearthed an online retailer for these hilarious and quirky cards written and designed by Lane Walker Foard.

I’ve only come across these cards in person in one store in the town of Lawrence, Kansas back when I was in high school. And I’ve kept an eye out for them in stationery stores and online ever since. I actually have a stockpile of them that I never planned on sending because I just couldn’t give them up. That might change now that I have an online source for them.

So now that I’ve gushed about how great these cards are, click through to see some examples.

Whimsy & Spice Goodies

Yes, this is a home & organizing blog but just for a moment I’m transforming it into a foodie blog with delicious bites brought to you today from Whimsy & Spice in Brooklyn. I love this family business and when I lived in the states, I frequently ordered goodies from them for my husband since he is in love with their delicious baked treats. In fact, we will be in New York next month and he has already requested that a care package be ordered as soon as possible and delivered to our room so he can have his W&S fix! ha!

Pretty Place Cards from Timeless Paper

Place cards aren’t something you see everyday. I would venture a guess that most people only come across place cards at weddings or other more formal events, and even then they aren’t always a given. But I do love place cards.

I aspire to someday have enough people over for a dinner party so I can use name cards without feeling silly. And when I do have that dinner party, these are the place cards I will use.

Trina Turk Home

When I first heard about fashion designer Trina Turk looking to launch a home line, I felt a tingle of excitement as so often I’ve looked at her clothes and imagined them as soft furnishings for the home. There are many prints and patterns in the fashion world that can easily cross over to interiors and Trina Turk’s bold patterns and colorways is a stunning example of this. In this collection you can find table linens, rugs, towels, pillows and candles… let’s have a look at a few of my favorites that are currently available for purchase in her online shop or over at….

Brocade Home: 8 Favorites

Brocade Home, a furniture and accessories store with both an online shop/catalog and a retail storefront in New York City, has some great offerings for the season. In fact, I spotted a few instant favorites that I’d like to share this morning — 8 favorites in fact. First, I like the new square turned leg dining room table ($499 square or $799 rectangle) which would suit a room that is either very modern with bright accent colors, a bit country with wooden farmhouse chairs, or even one that has more of a coastal vibe with a sisal rug, a capez shell chandelier and lots of blue and yellows. You could even use this as a work table in your office or craft room.

Sweet Bella: BTC Lighting

I’m always on the prowl for unique finds online — things that I just can’t find at my local big box shop. I recently came across Sweet Bella, an online shop based in Brooklyn operated on the top floor of an old factory building in Williamsburg. In addition to carrying some of their own designs, they are the exclusive U.S. distributor for all of the collections found on their site from companies based in Europe, Korea, and Japan. I particularly am fond of their lighting by BTC.

New Pillows to Go with this Duvet

A couple weekends ago I bought a new duvet cover for the first time in about five years. My current one saw me through my apartment in college and my move to New York. It was also one that I had made myself. So needless to say, it was time to upgrade. After a lot of contemplation, I decided on […]
