Clock Plate Clocks

These new clock plates by Young & Battaglia for Mineheart made me smile big today. Tick tock time! I love the tiny ticker best because it looks like my clock from childhood. Well, mine was red with a Hello Kitty face, but still…

About these little cuties, “The Clock Plate Clocks designed by Young & Battaglia feature images of vintage clocks printed on to glazed porcelain dinner plates. The family consists of 3 different sized plates which are designed to be hung on the wall either individually or as a set to create a unique and quirky wall feature. Each clock is inspired by a different capital city and are appropriately named London, Paris and New York to show different time zones if desired. Made in England with high quality German Quartz movement, these clocks are perfect for an office, dining room or living room.” I can see these being a hit, they’re quirky with character and quite useful, especially to own a few if you are doing business with peeps in other time zones as so many of us are these days. These clocks are currently available online here.

P.S. Have you seen their cowhide mouse pad? Rad!

Are these tickers for you?

Therese Sennerholt Prints

I spotted these graphic black and white prints today by Swedish designer Therese Sennerholt and thought you may really enjoy them – my favorite one is, “Sometimes the best moments in life are the simple ones. Like having cheese doodles and wine”. Another great one, “Always act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.” Which is so easy for us to lose track of sometimes, isn’t it?

Olive Juice

Hello my dear friends on the day of love! Here is a very sweet video that I thought you’d enjoy featuring the work of Nicole Licht, a talented in-house designer/artist over at Etsy in Brooklyn. This makes me happy to watch, I hope it does the same for you.

By the way, say aloud Olive Juice while looking into a mirror. That’s how I feel about each one of you.

xo,
Holly

Corbin Gurkin Photography

Hello everyone, how are you? I took Monday off from blogging to catch up on administrative tasks (oh so fun! not!) but the good news is that I’m on top of things in the office and feel loads better and more inspired to write again! I find writer’s block strikes when I have mountains of emails to reply to, tax stuff to sort out, expense reports to complete and calls to make – then it’s impossible to write with a mind heavy with tasks. I feel free again with my To Do lists in good form so let’s kick off the week by enjoying some beautiful photography by Corbin Gurkin, a super amazing wedding photographer based in Charleston, South Carolina.

I thought since weddings are not the focus of this blog that I’d highlight more of her lifestyle shots – particularly those that focus on texture, detail and color because in decorating, all three are key elements in making a space feel cozy and special.

What I love about Corbin’s work, in addition to her fantastic attention to detail, is how she works with light and her notice and capture of moments that some would have overlooked otherwise. I also appreciate how diverse her portfolio is – it’s a lot of work to be a destination wedding photographer! She is available for hire to shoot all over the world and she definitely has shot everywhere from Tuscany to Paris, London, California and Hawaii.

With work regularly praised by top wedding blogs and featured in top publications like Martha Stewart Weddings, The Knot, and Brides magazine, it’s no wonder why she is a sought-after photographer. To top it off, she was named one of the top twenty destination wedding photographers for 2011 by Destination Weddings & Honeymoons magazine. You can learn more about this talented lady here. Wonderful work, Corbin! Your work really kick- started a new week for me!
