Meg is one cool + creative California based chica, and a very loyal penpal of mine since we both share a love of writing and design. Plus, it’s just plain fun to bounce ideas off of other creative types, so our emails are always a few pages long and we tend to ramble a lot about pitch ideas. I love her new blog, Designer’s Library. She recently featured a great post about ceramicist Sherry Olsen that I think you design peeps out there will absolutely love. Welcome to blogsville, Meg!

Also open to int’l stores – Paris, Berlin, London, Rome. Thanks Paola for offering to pull together a London list for me…
Here’s the situation, I’ve added a gazillion new links and made some edits to the decor8 shopping column (right), so I’m hoping you can help me.
* First of all, new additions are clearly marked with * so you can easily spot them. I’ll remove the *’s this weekend, but for now, they’re staying so you can find all the new stuff.
* Next, please click through all the new sites I’ve added and make sure the links work. I didn’t have time to QA everything tonight, a girl needs her beauty sleep! If something is broke, please smack me in the head so I can edit as needed.
* Now, scan the cities; if I’ve missed your city, and you have some great stores to suggest, please send me an email. Speaking of email, I’ve added an email link to the top of the right column so you can reach me. I tried to avoid you for the longest time, but you wouldn’t let me… heh. heh. kidding. Anyway, I’m looking for mid-large cities, so smalltown, nebraska doesn’t qualify. Stores in a metro area are fine, as long as they’re within 20 minutes of the city.
* If you do spot your city, but notice that I didn’t mention stores that you love for home accessories, furniture and/or stationary, please email me with the store name, city, and URL.
Vision: To move the shopping lists to another page and organize them better, especially as they grow…but for now, this works. With so many of us on the go, it’s good to know about hip stores in the area you’re planning to either relocate or travel to, right? At least, that’s how I see it. I travel monthly (weekend trips), so I personally require something like this to use as a guide.
I sincerely thank each and every one of you for your support and readership, and look forward to reading your emails when I return later this afternoon.
See you today after 4pm with more fresh finds!

I hope you enjoy these vibrant playful images, designed by Yuki, a Waseda University student in Tokyo. Her major is anthropology and Japanese folklore, not design, so I’m quite intriqued by her artsy side and I wonder how she has the time to study, blog, and take so many great photos! I fancy her creative vision and her blog, and especially enjoyed browsing her flickr albums that include her design work as well as random street scenes in Tokyo.
