I wrote about the adult version of the Ostrich Pillow in January of 2012. They now just released a kids version. I continue to be intrigued.

The Blade

The Blade

I have written about the Blade necklace back in March, after I met its designer Njoki Gitahi. I am so happy to share that the Blade Necklace is now available for sale, handcrafted by metalsmith Melissa Hamming. A beauty, right? An no, it’s not sharp!



And, I have a favorite new Tattly: Feather by Jen Mussari. (replacing the carrot)

Analog Enamel Envelope Pin

Analog mail pin

You know what makes me happy? Anything that celebrates analog mail! In this case, this beautiful Enamel Envelope Pin.

What makes me even happier is that this is a personal project by my Tattly Team member Sarah Anderson. She had the idea for the pins, designed them, had them made, set up a site, and boom, she is in business. I love the internets and friends that embrace the opportunities it brings. Yay for side projects!

Now, go buy a pin, yes?

NYC Subway Tattly

MTA Subway Tattoos

Team Tattly is giddy over today’s long-awaited launch of the New York City Subway Set. We are working on collaborations with brands we love and we figured, since we are based in NYC, it would be lovely to start with a homage to the beautiful subway signage. If you want to know a bit more about the history of how the signage system came about, AIGA has a great article on this. And if you want to sport a Subway Tattly, head this way.

Elastic Patterns

Elastic Pattern

This is the kind of toy that gets me really excited: Elastic Pattern lets you create mandalas, patterns, geometric shapes. The set includes a wooden base, 13 wooden pegs and an assortment of muticolored rubber elastics. What I love most is that it comes packed inside a small bag for handy transport! Yay for analog toys.

Brooklyn Picnic Quilt

GNTLMN x Haptic Lab Brooklyn Picnic Quilt

My friends at GNTLM collaborated with Emily of Haptic Lab and created this stunning, limited edition Brooklyn Quilt. Rugged enough to use outdoors, soft enough to use on your bed, and attractive enough to spark a conversation anywhere. The top of the quilt features a hand-stitched map of Brooklyn, while the bottom showcases a strong red, white and blue plaid. Only 50 copies were made. Get it while you can, it just launched.



Kii is a compact charger-connector that fits on a keychain allowing you to plug in to charge or sync devices from any computer without having to carry a charger or tote around a cable connector.

I am a bit notebooked-out these days, but DODOnotes totally nailed it: It brilliantly marries the iPhone with the analog notebook. My compliments to DODOcase and Mohawk for this wonderful collaboration! Get DODOnotes for iphone 4 or 5.

Zoobean | Remarkable books for kids


Zoobean helps parents find books that children can identify with (character background, age) or fits specific circumstances (bullying, death & loss, holidays, etc.). So, for instance, if you want to find a book about self-esteem that features African-American characters for a 4 year old, you can.

(thank you Matt!)
