Beach Cruising

I need this.

I spent the morning searching for beach cruisers on EBay. Seller Ampco21 has the above bike in his store in seven different colors! Though I like mint green the best, I would also enjoy a trip to the market on the pearl white or baby blue bike.

A Good Morning

Fact: Coffee tastes better when drinking from a handmade mug.

The mugs are made by Melissa Older, who sells beautiful pottery in her Etsy store. Each item is hand thrown and fired in her Skippack studio.

The rose earrings are mine, made from Thai silver flowers soldered to handmade sterling earhooks. They are available here.

Wall Candy II

I felt like my last post didn't do justice to the Feist gigposter from Largemammal that I absolutely love. Check out their very lovely website, where they have many concert posters featuring some great indie acts available for purchase.
Below is more work by Shino Sarihara. I'm not sure why I went for an aquatic theme today, but there is more(fish unrelated) work for sale here.
Shino also has a beautiful website, and I like how its front page features this big guy:
