carried away

I must be honest, I have a fear of balloons!  Isn't that silly?  I would be better off with this adorable print by lovemaki a torronto based artist.  the sentiment is sooo sweet {If you knew how much I love you  you'd faint}.  It would be a lovely gift and how sweet would it be in a nursery( you can also get it in french).  visit her equally adorable website here.   If you don't suffer from globophobia ( yes, that is the fear of balloons) like me, how fun are these giant balloons by geronimo balloon troopers?  perfect to have at a photo shoot, wedding, soiree or really just any old day!  Check them out here.

how cool are these lulu frost 14K code rings? ($440 each)  You could stack them to symbolize a birthday, anniversary, # of cats you have, etc.  I think I would get the number 3 ( for me, j and oscar) check them out here.

and good news- tomorrow is wednesday- the work week is almost 1/2 way done!

golden child

check out the latest issue of {online} magazine matchbook here.  this month MB is  featuring a great article on the oh so talented (and blonder) gretchen jones winner of project runway's eighth season.  gretchen certainly brought a bit of much needed tension to the tv series but love her or hate her, you can't deny her designs were winners.   I especially loved her almost primitive jewelry designs which delightfully can you yours ( and mine!) on Piperlime, check it out here. ( 100% percent of the profits from her jewelry sales go to aid for artisans, pretty cool, huh?)  
are you watching season 9?  any favorites? 

ps:  wanting more?  check out matchbook's tumblr page 'strikes our fancy'  here
