Today I discovered Beau Ideal via Hey Susy. A once Miami resident, now Brooklyn based artist/designer creates these beautiful note cards, art prints, calendars and more. A really special idea of hers though is this Paper Guild – 3 month surprise gift membership. You pay a flat fee of $50 and you’ll receive a surprise gift package of assorted cards, prints, etc. at the beginning of each month. Genius. Would make a great presi, although I’d really love it for myself. Check out her designs:
I just finished watching the season finale of Project Runway. If you haven’t seen it yet, stop reading now.

Sometimes it’s nice to stop writing for a moment and spend a few days getting caught up on all the amazing blog reading out there. It’s also pretty healthy to go offline for some types of searches… so we’ve also been spending time looking for an apartment to buy. Unfortunately there’s nothing to boast about just yet… our goal is to find a place in Brooklyn by the end of the year. Today it’s time to take a breath, eat yummy food and stroll about the neighborhood we’re currently in. Below are a few of my favorite pictures from a D*S ‘Sneak Peek’: Jen Mankins of Bird.
I’ve been crawling around shops during my lunch break these last few days, running my hands over furry jackets, chunky knit sweaters, autumn-colored lace and holiday sequins. I’m in tactile heaven! I mean, isn’t this partly why we love fall? The new textures we get to play with and layer? I’m on a no-spending kick this month and am finding it increasingly difficult to resist some warm winter essentials I’m seeing out there. Have you already found your autumn/winter staples? If so, what are they?
This is the most beautiful reading spot ever. Via apartment therapy
Amazing little apartment in Hong Kong… 344 sf transforms into 24 different rooms.
