I am enthralled with this gorgeous bone china created by Reiko Kaneko.  The pieces are elegant with a contemporary twist and a touch of shine in platinum and gold...divine!

I also love these heart mugs...so ingenious to complete the handle with a sweet little accent! LOVE.

My very talented friend Tobe is selling these amazing hand lettered 5x7 prints to help support Japan relief.  You can purchase one for $12, two for $18, or all three for $25...and all the proceeds will go to the American Red Cross.  It's inspiring when creative people choose to use their talents to support those in need...amazing, Tobe!  Check out her blog, BIA here to purchase your own and support those in need.

{ Flat Fixation }

We are in that weird in between season where I am so tired of boots, but it's not quite warm enough to wear sandals, unfortunately.  I need to purchase some new flats because I wear what I own out.  I love flats...it's true.  They are perfect for someone like me, who doesn't necessarily like to compromise comfort for fashion, but still wants to maintain a little style.  I'm not rockin' birkenstocks, if ya know what I mean!  I found a few styles I'm liking.

1. Magie Camo Flat $40 { BCBG | Zappos }  2. Farran Flat $30 { Corso Como | Zappos }  3. Bay Leaf $195 {Kenneth Cole }  
4. Magen $45 { Aldo }  5. Carson Ballet $148 { Frye | Zappos }  6. Studded Ballet Flats $100 { J.Jill }

{ Sweet Little Dressers }

A great way to add charm to any room is a unique piece of furniture.  I love these refinished pieces...and when you add a pop of color or a touch of individuality they do so much to a neutral room.

{ Flocked Wallpaper }

I am really intrigued by the idea of adding soft texture to a wall by using flocked wallpaper.  It would definitely add a touch of luxury to a space.  I found some really nice finds recently and thought I'd share a few.

{ DIY Sunburst }

While researching for my recent starburst post, I stumbled upon this awesome do-it-yourself sunburst mirror post by Isabella & Max rooms.  I love the scale of this!  I'm thinking about taking a stab at it, because she makes it look super easy.  Take a look at the post and instructions here.

{ More Photo Finds }

I know that it seems like anyone with an iphone nowadays could be considered a unique photographer, but there is something about Irene Suchocki's prints that seem a little more special than that. She calls her work "little poems for the eyes", and I can understand why.  She uses rich subject matter and beautiful composition, while playing with light and technique.  It's no wonder her work has been used on numerous book covers.  Check out her website here and shop her etsy store here.
