As I sit here watching Mr. Etsy Detective watch game one of the Stanley Cup Finals, the excitement is palpable.
His beer, in this sticky DC heat, is beading...The drops break away from the glass and accelerate towards our antique trunk...THEY...COULD...GO...ALL...THE...WAY!!!! Boy do we need some decent coasters...
Cue Pinnacle Patchworks, comin' atcha from Clayton, GA. I love these coasters. The fabric is perfect (-ly absorbent) for a summer coffee table composition. And the bowl, while most certainly not cereal safe, is going to give you a much-desired pop of color, as the 'zines are wont to say.
Set of four coasters and small basket. $20.
Large Basket. $25.

Good morning! And now, another very special post for an amazing online boutique, a "shoppable Pinterest" if you will, Curio Road.
For years, I've been gathering the pieces to execute my dream Halloween costume: Margot Tenenbaum. I have the hair, I've got my grandmothers fur. I'd like to think I reflect Margot's casual malaise. I've even seriously contemplated how to reproduce her prosthetic pinkie. Papier mache? Beige sharpie cap? GIVE ME A SIGN!
So my Wes Anderson synapses started firing when when I saw Rifle Paper Co.'s Leopard IPhone Case. Reminiscent of Scalamandre's iconic zebra wallpaper that frames Margot's pouty mug, Rifle Paper Co.'s leopards look rich and whimsical against deep teal.
If only Rifle Paper Co.'s design existed as a fabric, I'd upholster everything I own in lovely leaping leopards. But until then, carrying this little slice o' Margot in my pocket will have to do.
Leopard IPhone Case. $30. Curio Road.

Wedding jewelry is tough. Do you begrudgingly respect tradition and go with Aunt Judith’s pink pearls? Or stay on-trend and wind up looking like an Aztec warrior fresh from his local 50 Shades fan gathering. Imagine those photo’s twenty years down the line. No regrets. Nope, not one bit…
Personally, I don’t think you can go wrong with pretty. And these Laalee aquamarine earrings are the prettiest little things I ever did see. I wish I could get married all over again just so I could wear them as my ‘something new+blue.’ I can see it now…
~~Dream Sequence Commencing~~
Mr. Etsy Detective and I are freshly post-vows, hamming it up for the photographer and running in slow motion through a field of tall grass/wildflowers/puppies, these beautiful blue babies glinting in some hazy Instagram light…And, SCENE.
(Disclaimer: Mr. ED says no matter how pretty the earrings are, he will not be running through any fields with me to satisfy my latent wedding part deux fantasies. Sigh.)
