Simple Pleasures

A sense of hope — somehow knowing that, despite appearances, things will get better. Lovely image via art star (sorry — can't find a credit for the photographer as yet).

Open Plan Living

Love these examples of open plan living from LivingEtc — relaxed and elegant.

New Snapshot Series

A brand new Snapshot series begins this Thursday, featuring amazing guest bloggers musing on the theme of Tranquility. You won't want to miss it!

Meet the Sponsors

Aneta of the wonderful Bobbin Talk blog is an accessories designer, writer and a fashion instructor at Parsons The New School for Design in NYC and the Academy of Art University online. She's worked for Marc Jacobs, Polo Jeans and Ralph Lauren — and freelanced for multiple design houses, as well as running her own successful luxury leather goods company. These days she dedicates most of her time to teaching and writing. On the Bobbin Talk blog she shares her love of design, fashion accessories and the people who create them — shown here is a fascinating recent post she did on Toronto-based photographer Meaghan Ogilvie, who specializes in underwater photography.

Sarah of the lovely Pink Street shop is celebrating her two year Etsy-versary in September! Which means it's a perfect time to place an order for her delicately beautiful jewelry, as all orders made from now through the end of September will receive a free pair of earrings with purchase — plus, any order placed on her birthday (September 22nd) will receive the earrings AND 22% off their order total (refunded through PayPal). If that wasn't tempting enough, the lucky 100th Pink Street sale will receive an extra-special gift in addition to the free gift earrings! Keep an eye on her shop, as Sarah will be adding new items regularly throughout September.
