Double strand dangling "Momo Paw Earrings" on Etsy!

I love Pussy Willows and Forsythia, having grown up in eastern Pennsylvania, these two spring branch (flowering) plants were spring bouquet staples. This week, it’s all pussy willows or as they are also known Mgambo seeds. I saw these earrings online and thought… DIY! (So if any of you decide — Continue reading

Trend: Honeycomb

Yesterday we wrote a post for Apartment Therapy about how we’ve been spotting honeycombs and hexagons everywhere. Not just in interiors, either, but in fashion, too. This doesn’t mean we love triangles any less, but we enjoy branching out into the geometric world a bit. Here are some inspiring photos — Continue reading

In honor of that new collaboration between Lonny Mag and Traditional Home, TRADhome, we thought we’d showcase a type of item that has a decidedly traditional-feel, but works wonders in modern homes: fabulous milk glass accessories.

Modern Etsy: The Good Machinery

Because the perfect accessory for a modern home is a brightly colored small animal figurine. Even better if said brightly-colored figurines are colored in different sections. Think animal statues are for kids or strict collectors? Not so with these accessible designs. Sometimes you need a little fun and levity in — Continue reading

Fashion/Interiors: Wearing Geometry

Math and geometry never were our strong suit in school, but that doesn’t mean we don’t love seeing and wearing the shapes whose sides needed measuring that tormented us for years. What does this post have to do with interiors you ask? You know, there are triangles and stuff in — Continue reading

How-to: Get Something Custom Made

Perhaps the greatest thing about DIY projects, besides that great feeling you get after a job well done, is the ability to completely customize a project to fit your exact functional and aesthetics needs. Not everyone is super skilled with bandsaws and screwdrivers, though. If you have some custom needs — Continue reading

1980s what what! We love the original ceramic designs of Etsy store Shoshona Snow Ceramics. We love the graphic pops of color, black and white patterns that are very vibrant and the fun and functional shapes. It’s true these cross over a bit into a folk art category, but we — Continue reading

Modern Etsy: Retroburgh

We usually stay away from Etsy stores that only sell tchotchkes–just little items that are retro yes, but stylish no. Today’s Modern Etsy focus, Retroburgh, is a bit of an exception. Besides sounding like a really cool vintage-focused town in Ohio, they sell a lot of fun and kitschy tchotchkes that — Continue reading

Blue Monday: Don’t be a Square

Square. Dweeb. Total downer. Why would you want to be called any of these things? We all want to be cool, hip and the life of the party. To be told “don’t be a square” is basically implying you just aren’t with it. But, the term square also means someone — Continue reading

We’re completely in love with these wooden apple boxes and accessories from Etsy store Miss Natalie. We like the patterns, the colors–the natural feel to them. The fact that you can put little things in it. What we would put in these boxes we haven’t quite figured out yet, but — Continue reading
