How ridiculously beautiful is this portable, rechargeable, old-school looking lamp? (I mentioned it in last week’s Friday Link Pack but love it so much I have to post it with a photo! Wishlisted!)
I chuckled upon discovering these colorful patches by Macon & Lesquoy at the tradeshow this last weekend.
This tote caught my eye. It’s 100% plastic free, machine washable, tear resistant and made from sustainably grown eucalyptus trees.
This Good Things Happen Print by Adam JK is the little bit of optimism we all need right now. (Comes in all kinds of colors)
Big fan of Adam J.K’s Unsolicited Advice 2022 Weekly Planner and Journal. The cover alone is making me want to buy it.
These are things I lovingly own:
My all-time favorite object in my house at the moment is this acorn vase.
Zena Swiss Vegetable Peeler. It might not look impressive, but let me tell you, this thing WORKS!
This LED light that can hold a charge for about 10h. I use it as a desk lamp and nightstand light. (My kids are each getting one for Christmas)
The Vava short-throw home theater projector has changed our life. I honestly don’t know why I ever need to set foot into a theater again. It’s expensive but oh-so-worth-it!
This acrylic bird feeder has brought endless hours of delight to both me and my cat. (I am looking at a BlueJay in it while I am typing this.)
I have had this cat litter box for a few years but have a new found appreciation for it now that I have adopted a dog and she can’t get to the cat’s poop. It’s such a sculptural and beautiful design, I don’t mind it sitting in the corner of my living room.
One Line a Day: A Five-Year Memory Book. I write a sentence or two every night, and in a year I can see where I was the year prior and travel in time every night. Fun!
This Ginkgo Leaf Shaped Dog Blanket/Bed. (That’s my rescue pup. I adopted her 3 weeks ago. I love her.)
Onsen bath towels make me happy. I ilearned about them because they sponsored my blog years back. I was curious and ordered a bunch of towels and loved them so much I replaced ALL of my towels in my house. I swear by the gray Bath Towel. My kids approve of them too.

Enamored with these peculiar looking candles by Piera Bochner. Brooklyn made!
These are some pretty compostable sponge sets. They are made from 100% natural materials – 70% FSC certified cellulose, 30% cotton and vegetal dyes. They can be washed both in the dishwasher and the washing machine — so they won’t harbor bacteria.
The beautifully-colored half matryoshka cupola set is hand-made by Raduga Grez in Russia.
