Tivi ::

What a beautiful bracelet. This so goes with every outfit I own.

Tivi's hand silk-screened wood cuffs are formed from ebony, zebrawood or birch. They're finished with a satin lacquer to create a resilient and protective coating. The handwork involved with each of the various prints ensures no two cuffs are exactly alike.
Available at Feel More Human. (via notcouture)

EmmeBi :: Toolbox

Ooooh, type as drawer handles! (link and images via design milk)

apt32 :: Folding Camera Case

A reader suggested I do a post on black & white iPhone cases {which may just come once I've actually purchased one} and in the process of peeking around Etsy this morning I saw this cute little folding camera case.

Second Line Frames

Second Line Frames are constructed from salvaged wood siding after Hurricane Katrina and portion of each sales goes to assist the rehabilitation of affected neighborhoods. A great background behind the name:

The Second Line is a timeless New Orleans tradition – the colorful parade that follows a funeral procession to turn tragedy into a celebration of rebirth.

Keri Smith :: It is what it is

This illustration by Keri Smith {of guerilla art kit, wreck this journal, non-planner datebook} brings back memories of "the good old days {see below}." (via swissmiss)

Once upon a time, I worked for several years as an in-house graphic designer {which our "studio" comprised of me and one student worker} at a university. It was an amazing learning experience, but if you've ever worked in a university setting, you know that more often than not, change can happen oh so very slowly. The only way to keep my sanity at times was to just
simply say "It is what it is." It became my signature phrase; a co-worker, who is now a good friend, used to often end her rants with saying "I know, I know what you're going to say, 'It is what it is'. . ."
