Origami boxes

These make me want to stop full-time work and just make origami all day. Well, at least for some of it. :)

Citybook Bookcase

Wow. This is waaayyy out of my budget but this Italian bookcase is so beautiful. You can also set it up all different ways - found here via the very excellent Shoebox Dwelling.

Dotted fox

Just gorgeous. Love the colours of the pottery here against the stark, foxy print.

Black and white nesting dolls

It's funny how some people think that kid's toys need to be plastic and garish colours. i love wooden toys and these black and white nesting dolls are pretty fabulous.

Fiddle Figs

I still really need to go and buy a big Fiddle Fig like this one. The only ones you can buy online are super small and I haven't worked out how to fit this in our car/convince the Pal that he'll love going and buying it with me! In the meantime, I'm going to look at this picture a lot :)

Gorman Winter

I had forgotten just how much I like Gorman until I had a quick look at their website and fell in love all over again. And given that summer in San Francisco is actually similar to winter in Sydney, weather-wise, these outfits kind of look perfect.

Organizing manifesto

I liked this poster. I don't think I'd hang it up in my house for fear of freaking out The Pal, but I might just keep it bookmarked for those days when organizing seems powerful. Um, yes, every day.

Somewhere in the past few years, I've become obsessed with roses. I literally cross the street to smell them, and feel like i'm growing into my Mum and Grandma - both rose-crazed, too - which is a beautiful feeling. This isn't even a metaphor for me: it's a life rule.

Come fly with me

This Markus Lupfer jumper is out-of-control gorgeous. Of course it's sold out (just as well, really) but eugh - so gorgeous.

Geometric print

What beautiful light and I love that print in the pale wood frame. One part cat, one part fox, one part awesome.

Sewing the news

Lauren DiCioccio embroiders photographs from the New York Times and holy moly, this looks amazing. What a brilliant project. (This via Kottke).

Colour matching

I love the way the vase matches the flag in the painting here - such a nice, sweet touch and it really makes the corner come together.
