Cookie mag

While we’re on the topic of hip parenting…have you heard of the new Cookie magazine? It’s a modern inspirational lifestyle magazine that celebrates parenthood, showcasing the hottest trends in fashion, FURNISHINGS, toys, books, travel, etc. Published by Conde Nast (Domino, for instance), I’m sure it will be a good read. Parents SO needed a magazine like this. This was long overdue.

C is for Cookie, that’s good enough for me!

Thanks to Drew and the design savvy team at Design Public, parents can now have some posh rockers in their home for reading to the little ones. Moms and dads everywhere needed options outside of the typical wooden rockers and gliders you see at all the big baby superstores. Finally, you don’t have to trade in style for child-bearing.

I love the Nurseryworks line being offered exclusively at Design Public. Although not a good reason to procreate, it definately makes even the scared DINKS* want to light the candles and plan some babies of their own. I know, it’s snobby, but you guys have to agree – most of what you see in the major department stores are not going to blend with a hip urban environment. Why sacrifice when you can own a cool crib to put into your even cooler crib – your home?

*DINKS=double income no kids

Jelly and Anchovy

Although I wouldn’t make a sandwich out of them, I’d certainly send a card created by them. Jelly and Anchovy. Makes me think of sweet + salty, which is what this little rockin’ stationary company delivers – sassy handcut papergoods with quick wit and a simple clean format. Punchy and sweet.

It’s okay to email your honey with times new roman fonts of endearment, but never forget the power of the handwritten love letter tucked inside the perfect card. That’s amore.

Here are some of my favorites from Jelly and Anchovy.

me love you long time (my favorite from the bunch)

you rock

i was such a moron

you studmuffin!

There’s so much in life to be thankful for. The best friend who holds your hand as you tell her your break up story for the 100th time. The officer who only gives you a verbal warning for going 90 MPH in a 20 MPH zone (maybe it’s the effect you have on men in uniform?). Muscle cars. Audrey Hepburn. Chocolate. Random trees to toss your coat on.


I know, just when you think there wasn’t enough to be thankful for, this tree coat rack walks into your life begging you not to resist. And how can you, with limbs like that?

I’m crazy for this coat rack, and wanted to show him off to all of you. He’s available at twentytwentyone if you’re interested, in three color choices, birch veneer stained black $460, natural birch veneer $395, and white lacquer $340 (my favorite!).
