I saw these gorgeous map quilts by Leah Evans on Design Crisis, and I am really impressed with them! I love maps, I love quilting, it’s a great combination! They sure look like they’d be difficult to make, though worth it! To see more of Leah’s work, check out her site, and for more interesting quilts, see here, here, and here.
Have you guys seen these behind-the-ear earrings that have been popping up lately?
There are pictures featuring them floating around the internet, but I haven’t really seen information about them. I like them! Do you? Would you wear them? Have you heard anything about them? How on earth do they stay on?

As you may have heard on the weather, Philadelphia is a little bit snowed in today…

We are really excited to be selling jewelry from Nikki B designing from Santiago,Chile. Nikki employs women in Chile to bead jewelry in their homes on their own time providing extra income. The extra income helps many of these women and their families, paying for running hot water or their children’s education.
Nikki’s inspiration is the beautiful country of Chile, it’s colors and landscape as well as her own intrinsic modern taste. The jewelry is made with glass beads, handmade sterling silver and vermeil beads, seeds, shells, semi precious stones, silk thread, leather and local mystical wood carvings from the mountain region of Chile.

Ah! I want a book ring by Ana Cardim! So cute, and I’d never forget anything again!
I am obsessed by the graphics on these antique German notgeld, or emergency money. Notgeld was printed by small municipalities and town banks in Germany from WWI through the 1920′s and 30′s. Though it was not legal currency, it was generally accepted, and actually proved useful due to the outrageous inflation in Germany at the time. These scans are all from Flickr user Iliazd, who has an awesome notgeld set with something like 900 different marks in it! If you love sweet graphics or history, or both, be sure to give it a browse.

Love her or not, these photos by Hedi Slimane look amazing. I love the styling and that first photo is my favorite, with the mix of decadent fabrics.
