Unruly Things / Show Me Your Stack :: Masumi Hayashi

I just love today’s stack from Brooklyn based metalsmith, Masumi Hayashi.  the rings, the polish – just perfect, right?!  here’s what Masumi has to say about her stack…

I’ve enjoyed wearing knuckle rings for years and I feel it’s getting popular lately. I personally needed more design choices, so I just released new “knuckle ring collection”, which I wear on my knuckle and pinky in the image above.

thanks so much Masumi!  personally, I’m in love with this little knuckle ring.  what about you?  see more of her beautiful collection here.

sometimes I’m just grateful that I have a kid.  because that means I get to spoil him treat him with amazing things like these knitted goodies from one of my long-time favorites, Donna Wilson.  then secretly, I get to enjoy their cuteness for myself, too!  these shots from the new DW lookbook are too much.  I’d take it all if I could!

bite + sip : mazama ceramic vessels

Mazama Ceramic Wares

I am a handmade ceramic fanatic.  there’s just nothing better than holding a freshly thrown ceramic cup in your hand and sipping your favorite beverage from it.  what’s even better is knowing that handmade cup is made a mere stone’s throw away from you.

my friend Casey emailed me to introduce me to Mazama – an amazing new project that she’s working on with a few friends to create a line of ceramic vessels built around moments with a drink.  Mazama vessels are perfect for that first cup of coffee to get your day started or that glass or wine at the end of a long day.  Mazama drinking vessels are designed with one thing in mind: to elevate what’s in them.  and they’re just stunning.

Mazama Ceramic Wares

Mazama is raising funds through Kickstarter to produce their inaugural collection of vessels: from product creation, firing, glazing, quality control, shipping and all the other elements that go into developing their first big production run.  back them if you can.  you’ll be truly pleased with the lovely ceramics you’ll receive in return.

Unruly Things / Show Me Your Stack :: Nicolette Johnson

today’s stack comes from Nicolette Johnson, an American photographer based in Brisbane, Australia.  I first connected with Nicolette on Instagram and just fell in love with her photography.  here’s what she has to say about her stack…

My taste is heavily influenced by the American Southwest, particularly evident in my jewellery collection, as my father grew up in New Mexico and I was there often as a child.  The ring on my left hand is so special to me, my father gave it to me upon graduating and I’ve worn it every day in the past 6 years since.  It is an inlaid lapis lazuli stone made by the Zuni tribe.  I have a Stone & Honey triangle ring on my right middle finger, and the little twisted band above that was given to me by my partner Tom on our first anniversary of dating.  The little round silver button ring above that is from Brisbane designer Flame & Pickle.  The gold and citrine bracelet on my right wrist was a gift from Tom on our trip to Paris, and the lapis lazuli bracelet below it was my mother’s.  On my left wrist is a silver and turquoise bracelet from Mexico, and my beloved 1940′s vintage Omega watch.

you can visit her blog here for some beautiful inspiration.  thanks Nicolette!

for the past few months, Levi and I have been actively looking to buy a house.  neither of us has ever owned, so this will be a first!  we’re really excited, nervous and a little anxious to find our perfect home.  with buying on the mind, naturally I’ve been pinning and wishlisting things a LOT.  I’ve been scouring members only sale sites like Fab and Hush Hush for the best deals on chic furnishings and I’ve been bookmarking lots of DIYs for a potential new home.  {can we say greenhouse?!}  here’s a little bit of my recent interior inspiration: warm, vintage and a bit industrial.
