Bits & Pieces: Son of a Sailor

1. Son of a Sailor isn’t exactly a new find. Back in December, I purchased a copper necklace with a tiny brass charm from their booth at the Renegade Handmade Holiday Craft Fair in San Francisco. Long before encountering their even-more-adorable-in-person charms last month, I admired their hand-painted necklaces and leather bracelets on Design*Sponge and … Continue reading

Ship in a Bottle

You know how everywhere you go, there seems to be an abundance of owl motifs? Gnomes became trendy around the same time that owls did.

Despite my adored collection of bright and contemporary sweaters, I often associate cardigans with a traditional, slightly conservative … Continue reading

Chicago-based Loose Petals not only produces graphic, vibrant portraits of American cities, they do so in an eco-friendly manner. Even more bonus points … Continue reading

If you’ve seen the show, you already know that gun running plays a big role in many of the story lines, thus the clear focus on guns today. You may … Continue reading
