One of my all time favorites! Egg Press is a greeting card company, design studio and letterpress print shop based in Portland, Oregon. Founded in 1999, they are considered one of the pioneers in the resurgence of letterpress printing. They’re often noted for a sophisticated color palette, hand drawn illustrations, all-over textile inspired patterns, and sense of humor. They design and produce all of their greeting cards and small-batch textiles in-house. (All cards are $5.50/each or $17.50/box 6 – As always, click to shop!)
Brooklyn’s Light & Ladder focuses on two things; pots and hooks. That’s it. And they do it exquisitely!

Love these deliciously scented candles from Brooklyn Candle Studio, where their small batch, hand-poured candles are a nod to 19th century apothecaries.
Brooklyn Candle Studio was founded as an homage to the meditative approach of the small batch process. Production is kept small and simple — candles are poured by the team in batches of 9 or 10. Each candle, from wicking to wax melting to pouring and wick-cutting, is created with the utmost care and precision. Known for their fresh, calming botanical fragrances and gorgeous packaging, these candles are simple and modern with a hint of vintage charm. (As always, click to shop!)
I was in London having lunch at La Fromagerie, when I became distracted from my delicious beet salad by rows and rows of shelves filled with the most remarkable pottery. Simple, but perfect. Turns out, it was an assortment of Les Guimards Stoneware that the owner had collected. Les Guimards is a family-owned workshop founded in 1976 in Burgundy, France that builds on the pottery tradition of the region with understated pieces for an elegant and cozy table. I fantasized about tossing out every plate and bowl in my kitchen and replacing them with these lovely treasures, but settled on three pieces to call my own.
I’m getting in the mood for spring; and for getting outside and playing in the dirt. Here in Minneapolis, it’s not quite time for gardening in earnest, so I’m focused on a bit of indoor gardening. First order of business? Acquiring a really cool plant stand…
A few more pics of ABC Carpet’s spring assortment, as well as a couple of photos from Home Nature, one of my very favorite shops in Manhattan! (They’re the last 5 montages.)
Snapped a few pics whilst shopping at ABC Carpet in New York earlier this month, so I thought I’d share a little taste of what the retailer has in store for spring!
