Michi Shop

Friday, April 1st, 2011

Hi everyone! Sorry for the lack of posts the past two days but WordPress went bonkers and my husband/IT guy was out of town. Anyway everything is fixed and I return you to your regularly scheduled programing:

Thanks to Oh Joy, I came across Michi and am utterly smitten! Kat Macleod is the genius behind this charming shop stocked with colorful little gems. I didn’t know I needed a set of colorful carpenter pencils but now I do! And a cute tote that reads “thanks very michi” – you bet! Even her watercolor postcards have me sprung!

There are few things I love more than shopping for the little people in my life. I use each holiday and birthday as an excuse to spoil my nieces and nephews as much as possible!  One of my favorite places is flora & henri, it’s like Cute Overload for kids clothes. Their european style finds are so stinking cute! Though a bit more pricey, they’re probably not so realistic on a day-to-day basis but they do make for nice little-big gifts.

Glass Beverage Bottles

I’ve seen images of similar bottles online and was completley smitten. I love it when someone can appropriate the language of something unappealing and wasteful and turn it into an object of beauty. With all the effort to be more socially responsible and care for the environment they seem like a cheeky way of doing your part.

You can imagine my glee when I came across these small ones at Crate & Barrel for only $7.95! My husband and I now have them on our desks at work and a set in our guest room. Love!
