Truche makes necklaces in the shape of states (or countries) where you were born and raised or transplanted and proud. If you can't find the place you want in their shop, they also take custom orders. Each piece is $50 and is hand cut from fine silver.

Broken Bells is the collaboration between James Mercer of The Shins and producer Danger Mouse. I love the sound of this entire album and the art too. It was released yesterday and I'll admit that I downloaded it two weeks prior, but don't worry, I bought a copy too. Notable songs: The High Road, The Ghost Inside, October, The Mall & Misery (also, when I downloaded the songs a couple of weeks ago, I got a copy of a track that isn't on the album and I love that one).

I'm jealous of people who can sew their own clothes. If I could do it, I would love to make things like these jackets and tops by Little Houses in Vancouver. They're currently having a sale where most items in their shop are 30% off until the end of March.

I recently got an email from Prismera Design about the launch of their new rose hair accessories. The clips are made with an eco stainless steel accent and are great for tucking in your hair or clipping onto a blouse.

Love these graphic prints from Bold & Noble, a UK design collective founded by Jane Tobitt and David Wardle. Their artwork is kind to the environment too, since everything is printed on recycled card and sent out in eco cardboard tubes. Each print is available in two colors.

UK paper artist Helen Musselwhite is inspired by nature and creates her pieces by hand cutting, folding, and scoring papers that are worked into layered, patterned, and textured scenes.

It's been a while since I've featured an Etsy shop, which used to be a close to weekly thing here. I'm hoping to bring that feature back again, starting with Roll & Tumble Press. I love their You Are All I Need letter-pressed mini posters. They come in a variety of colors for $15 each.
Anthropologie has done it again. I love seeing all the creative ways they come up with to sell their products. These paper-made animals, insects, and plants intermixed with jewelry make me happy.
