Sponsor Spotlight: Relique


{1. Factory Light 2. Toledo Stool 3. Zinc Caddy 4. Vintage Clock Face 5. Storage Drawers 6. Health Chairs}

Like I've mentioned before, I adore visiting Relique. They have so many delightful vintage items to choose from, that it fills me up! I've always felt very comfortable with vintage items...it's the current stuff that makes me nervous, luckily Relique doesn't have much of that. The items pictured above are all located in Relique's "new" section - always fun to start off there first.

Much of Relique's inspiration comes from the appreciation of Industrial Age design and maintaining that aesthetic for future generations. Relique represents a cross-section of then and now. Salvaged architectural elements, and factory cast-offs as well as designs from artisans who have taken these elements and given them a new purpose.

Use the code "BLOESEM20" when you check out and you will receive 20% discount on your entire order! (minimum $100 purchase. Expires July 31.) - Sponsor Spotlight

Tove Johansson


When a favorite blogger/photographer of mine is working together with a Swedish printmaker something beautiful must come out of it ...  the new collection by Tove Johansson is simply stunning. 

I love the pillows, the lampshades, teatowels and of course the kids' collection too.

And if this is only just the beginning than I am sure we will hear and see much more of this talented lady. 

Tove Johansson is a Swedish designer based in Paris working in the fields of fashion and printmaking for interior, accessories and stationary. Enjoy! 




Tove hasn't given me any information wheter her collection is already availble online to buy but you can send her an email for further enquiries.

I Like You...Vegetable Set


What the what, Tattly did what? How much do I love this vegetable set by Julia Rothman over at Tattly? Only as much as this vegetarian loves vegetables...which is a lot! They are perfect for anyone that is a fan of vegetables, the gardener in your life, or just if you want to feel like summer all over. There are a lot of farmers where I live, and I am wondering if this will give me field cred if I sport them at my next visit to the seed shop...basically I can't wait to order mine! - Tiffany King
