Serious, serious omg time. This porcelain company called Nymphenburg has a new line of plates called "My Night Sky." You can order a set of seven plates that will be hand painted and personalized with an exact replica in gold and platinum of the night sky for a particular date, time and place. WHOA! mind. being. blown. Price upon request, but of course.

My other newly reignited obsession of late is Oaxacan wood carved animals. I was walking through Noe Valley the other day when a huge window full of 'em stopped me dead in my tracks!
I had never seen a porcupine one before. LOVE!
Also loving Mr. Armadillo...
And Mr. Crab...
Someday I intend to have a tasteful yet extensive collection of these in my home, although I am also somewhat fearful I am already slipping slowly toward a house entirely chock full o' Mexican crafts and little else (besides letterpress cards & records)! Oh, gals and their obsessions...
Being a self-professed lover of paper products, I have to share with y'all my favorite letterpress cards ever. They are made on Swan's Island in Maine by Saturn Press. You can order many different cards they make here. The ones above are but a small assortment of their amazingness.
And yes, I already ordered my Christmas cards from them! (Dork!)
(p.s. -- sorry the pic got cut off in such an awkward way.)
(and p.p.s. -- youthful Calvin Johnson = dreamy!)

Omfg. If this could somehow magically fit me, I would add a glorious thick ribbon round the waist, do a Stevie Nicks twirl, and wear it for my wedding in a heartbeat!
This one works too! I guess Victorian people were tiny though...
All these 32" busts ruin these dresses of my dreams!

I've never been very drawn to Jonathan Adler's work before. I get it: it's cutesy, ceramic mod stuff that just doesn't quite suit my personal style...until now...
He had to go there. Whales get me almost every time, and this butter dish is no exception. And then we have:

I guess mushrooms aren't really vegetables, since they are fungi, but what the heck, they go in my salad, so I'm stretching it!
This bowl is amazing and vintage. For sale here on ebay.
A dish from the same collection! Amazing.

I have what some might call a sick fascination with paper products, it's true. And should I ever get married, these place cards are pretty much exactly what I would want at each setting:

Just realized that so many pleasing things I have been checking out lately are bird related! Here's a few...
Like this Marushka quail print...
and this gull necklace...
It's a fact that I am a sucker for letter press cards like these splendid specimans...
and also a sucker for gorgeous decorations like this garland...
and I'm also loving amate paintings right now. If only the bf did too so we could get some!

A few items of interest these days:
Gingham dresses are good.
Mirrored tables like this make me happy.
And just a dash of Native American style art, especially with a horse involved.

I have something of a secret "thing" for tulle skirts, like this one. My favorite outfit ever on Sex and the City was Carrie's teal ballerina dress in the final episode in France. Wow. Anyway, this black tulle dress is so chic and adorable.

I find this dress to be a complete (pricey) dream.
And this one as well!
These shoes are what I wish I could wear to the wedding I am in next month: sweet, stylish and comfy!!
Summery baskets that look like they were made for Dolores Park right here!

Been having a lot of crystal visions myself lately. Pardon me, I'm just going through this heavy agate and crystal thing right now.
Erica Weiner makes effing amazing jewelry in general and this necklace is out of control!
And this notebook is gorge.
These are actually hand made soaps! Love em!
Kind of in love with these rings too, but they seem delicate and easily breakable too for someone as klutzy as me...I'm no ballerina like Stevie Nicks.
