Boucherouite are a form of rag rug that is most often made in Morocco or other parts of Europe. I love the colors, the organic designs and the total comfy approachability.

These ones featured here came from the following online sources: Beklina, Beldi Rugs, Pink Rug Co. and ShabbyChic.com.

This nursery, as featured in Australian Elle, is a feast for the eyes! It’s a bit intense but I still found myself drawn to all the color and shapes and treasures. It is the playful home of kids Captain and Sugar (yes, real names), children of stylist/designer Sheree of CaptainAndTheGypsyKid.

Dorky jokes aside, I just ordered these fern stamps from the USPS. And came across some other fern-inspired treasures thanks to a post by Shannon of HappinessIs.

Pretty cool fern print jacket by Leslie R Buchanan:

be brave : make waves

makewaves

This is one of my favorite Portland-made discoveries. Be Brave Make Waves creates these small kinetic wooden sculpture boxes, that when wound with the handle, show a boat riding on gentle undulating waves. It’s magical. $38 and available from their Etsy shop or in local Portland stores.

Watch the very brief video below showing the sculptural boxes in action:

This new product, Tweak, from Tel Aviv design duo Nitzan Shafat and Aviv Rozenfeld resolves the ickiest part of the dish-washing process: removal of all the food gunk that accumulates at the drain. Clever!

They’re backing their first big production run through Kickstarter, selling large and small Tweaks (sink or bathtub) for $8 or more in contributions.
