Night Owl Paper Goods

You most likely already have seen the post on Design*Sponge for Night Owl Paper Goods new wooden wedding invites. Simply stated, they are fabulous. As a competitor, I have a twinge of jealousy for their creative edge, but I must bow to it and find my own version of unique. Surely, no one else will try to copy their awesome wooden style.

Night Owl products seem to appear in every hip card shop I've been in. But only now have I seen that they carry more than cards, including eco-friendly tote bags and affordable artwork. And all their stuff is environmentally conscious.

Des Sandales

Why are sandals just so darn exciting? Say what you will about the shortcomings of today's fashions (and I will have to agree with you), I have never seen a time with a more adventurous array of footwear. Can you not see yourself slipping into the role of some fantastic character just by putting on some of these shoes? Sandals make you so aware of your feet, which happen to be the instruments that guide the rest of you. Summer equals sandals, which equals a little bit of fantasy. So pumice, polish, and moisturize to get ready to show of those tootsies!

These are some of my favorite picks from Piperlime's sandals.

My Favorite Works from Lab Partners

Lab Partner's work has been showing up all over the place...for awhile. But I never saw just how many obsession-worthy pieces they've made! My favorites are their new four woodland-theme prints (top images), designed by Julia Rothman and Kate Sutton. These fabulous prints are available on Hello! Lucky gift shop. The rest of these images I pulled from their Flickr photostream here (I actually ran into it while searching "Gocco" on Flickr). A few of their prints are available on their Etsy shop here. Check their sweet blog here.
