Cork Pegs :: MOLO

Um, what the awesome?  I don’t know about you, but a wall full of crazy magnetic cork pegs sounds like a good idea to me.  Or maybe just a few in my closet for scarves and necklaces.  How and where would you use these bad boys? Cork Pegs by MOLO: — Continue reading

Neos Lettering :: Typographic Lighting

A friend of mine shared these on Twitter the other day, posing the question “Hot or not?” – and I emphatically declared HOT!  (I’m all for a touch of playfulness in my decor and lighting!)  Mostly, I love that each character is sold separately, so you can form whatever word — Continue reading

Any Bag Camera Bag

I’ve had a DSLR for over 6 years now and my collection of photos does not reflect that fact. I’m either too lazy to cary my big, hunky camera bag around or scared to put in my man purse (murse) unsheathed. But now, with the Any Bag Camera Bag Insert, — Continue reading

Blue Monday: Graphic Blue

What makes something graphic? Some people count bold patterns, but for us, it’s something more. Or actually, something less.

We promise that today’s Modern Etsy store feature was not chosen based solely on the fact that one of our favorite words is “haus” (but it certainly didn’t hurt).
