Learning To Love You More

Just recently a friend showed me the book Learning to Love you More. I had been aware of the project created by the artists Miranda July and Harrell Fletcher and was excited to find out they published a book, compiling all of the lovely, happy and sad stories of people from around the world completing the assignments created by the authors. Some of the assignments are silly and fun, while others are more thought provoking and sad, all of which will help you build a greater sense of self. Some of my favorite assignments are:

#6 - Make a poster of shadows.
#25 - Make a video of someone dancing.
#35 - Ask your family to describe what you do.
#45 - Reread your favorite book from the 5th grade.
#53 - Give advice to yourself in the past.
#63- Describe your ideal government.

Here is a link to the Oliver family, they created a blog documenting the completion of their assignments.

Bread and Butter

I love the simplicity of these cards from Bread and Butter. Such sweet little messages that would make anyone smile.

Designer Alison Woodward of Reverie makes some of the most incredible handmade jewelry around. Each piece is an original one of a kind, at times looking more like a beautiful composition in a painting than something you can wear. Lucky for us, we can wear her art. These pieces remind me of warm weather, something I desperately miss right now!

Thomas O'Brien Dinnerware

Recently a friend sent me photos of the Thomas O'Brien dinnerware. The photos were taken at Thomas' store Aero and show how all of his dinnerware collections work beautifully together. Patrick and I are registered for the Elissa collection, and now I am thinking of adding either the Marielle or Tilden Lace chargers to our assortment.

Just Another Day

Browsing through Etsy, I came across the great little Minneapolis sketchbooks by Just Another Day. Although Patrick and I now live in New York, we started dating back in Minneapolis a long, long time ago. We share such fond memories of MN and these sketchbooks would be great additions to our welcome totes to represent the beginning stages of our relationship.
