New Ketubah just launched with a fresh site and some beautiful and cool new offerings.
I love Tsilli’s work–she brings a modern aesthetic to her ketubah designs but with some classy handmade elements, like stitching, polaroids or unique personalization. This design, In the Stars, is my favorite from the Classic Collection, but you should definitely explore the others. Not to mention, Tsilli is an awesome lady all around and runs Portland, Oregon’s Creative Mornings chapter.

You know how I feel about pitchers. This one is available from the MOMA Store for $65, designed by Alessandro Alberti and Giulietta Piccioli in 2008. Joy-inducing.
