things I want

Rainbow Shoes

It’s always good to get a new pair of sneakers in the fall, but wouldn’t they seem a lot more fun if you could choose one of every color? Below are few of my favorite old-school sneakers, in rainbow order. If I walked into my closet and saw this, I think I might die of joy.

pink, red, orange, yellow, green, dark green, blue, navy, purple

J Me

I was in Williams Sonoma the other day and fell in love with the packaging on the Jamie Oliver food. So simple and perfect. I especially like the hand written jars that make you feel like you stole something from his pantry.

Furze Chan

These DIY puppets from Furze Chan are fun. She’s got a very precise Beatrix Potter style of illustration that is adorable. Her papercuts are amazing as well, as seen over at Oh Joy.

Back to Work

Why do kids get to have all the fun? For all the nine-to-fiver’s out there, here’s a little round-up of some fun and inexpensive back-to-work supplies. Because sometimes you need a little something to get you excited about sitting in a cubicle all day. Pencils to make you seem clever, a fun diner-style pen holder, stripy folders to keep organized, and a new bright waterproof notepad.


I don’t think you can ever have too many printed canvas totes. They are perfect to fill will groceries, lunch, library books and run out the door. Here are a few pretty black and white bags. The “Hold Me” one cracks me up.
