Amy Butler Eco-Bedding for Welspun

Amy Butler just wrote to me about her new line of bedding and I dropped everything to share these images with you. Yay Amy! It’s her first bedding collection with Welspun and is produced with 100% organic cotton and printed with low impact dyes proving that eco-friendly bedding can be bold and gorgeous. The bedding is 400 thread count and Amy tells me that it feels gorgeous to the touch.

I really love the turquoise bedding with the lime green accents – so fresh! Congratulations Amy and thanks for letting decor8 readers know the big news!

Jonathan Adler S + P Shakers: New

Look at these little charmers and tell me how one cannot find a way to justify dropping nearly $50 bucks on s + p shakers? C’mon, you agree with me right, total cuteness — especially the little heads. Of course, looking at them gives me a ton of inappropriate things to say but they’d be absolutely fun to give as gifts.

Thanks Jonathan Adler for keeping it real and keeping us all broke. Lovely. By the way, these aren’t available online yet so you’ll have to keep cruising the JA website to stalk their release.

Rice – Summer Collection

I love me some Rice. What a great Danish company, I own a bunch of things from them – I particularly like their kitchen items and ceramic bowls because everything is well made and happy looking! They’ve just rolled out a new website with photos in full on saturated color and oh boy, oh boy! You practically need sunglasses it’s so bright.

Notice who is shown in the picture frame on the shelf? Cute, isn’t it?

Did you know that Rice is now in America? Oh yes. I joke you not. I started writing about them three years ago and always wondered if someday they’d end up at some local Anthro store and sure enough… I bet a store could curate 100% of their merchandise these days from reading blogs because let’s face it, bloggers report on trends and talk about what consumers want. Reading blogs keeps their finger on the pulse of consumer buzz and that is a hot little pulse to monitor because it means potential profit. Look at Orla Kiely for instance, unknown in America a few years ago and now she’s practically a household name. Not a coincidence. If you want something bad enough just blog about it a couple thousand times. People are out there watching. They’re listening. To us. The bloggers and the blog readers. Kind of cool, don’t you think?

You can buy lovely Rice products in America — click here (type in USA) to view where they’re available.

Etsy Take Five Tuesday

Time for a little take five action from the fabulous never-ending supply of beautiful Etsy shops! I’ve included a bonus find in a 6th shop in today’s round up below for your added pleasure. :)

Etsy Take Five Tuesday

Julie Pollen in Montreal creates things you imagine in your dreams, her brooches are extremely tempting and make me want to spend money I don’t have. Will you just have a look at them and tell me they’re not totally charming?

Etsy Take Five Tuesday

If you love retro prints that are fresh and vibrant then I invite you to visit Kristina Miletieva’s shop for a variety of 8 x 8 prints that she designs – perfect for the retro kitchen, don’t you think?

Some try to resist the trend, the doily seems to continue onward! Here’s an example of a doily done right at And Furthermore in Portland, Oregon. These clocks are unique and fun and ok, a little bit grandma but we love our grandmother’s so there’s no harm in a little kitsch.

Zelaya is a family owned shop in San Salvador and they have me drooling over their bags, these are perfect for sunny days! I love the creamy white and all of the hand sewn details and those gorgeous wooden handles. These are so lovely for that coastal vacation!

These contemporary felt flowers have me drooling from A Alicia Handmade Accessories in London. You can add them to anything you wish and you can even order a custom piece in colors of your choice. This seller clearly has good taste. Wow.

And the bonus find this week is over at Threefold handmade paper goods in Seattle. I love these wishbone cards!
