Halloween Items I Am Loosing My Gourd Over

I love Halloween. I really *really* love it. Both my mom and I love to go ham on some post-Halloween clearance sales, and I'm pretty sure every room in my house has some kind of repurposed Halloween decor, from a ceramic skull cookie jar to old Halloween fake skulls I've spray-painted gold. There is some really good stuff out there this year, and some stores like Wayfair already have their Halloween decor at 70% off! Some of my favorites are above. I'm going to have to get to Target soon for that snake-wrapped hourglass! And look at that metal vampire bat door-knocker! Eeeeeeeee!!!

Tapestries That Won't Make Your House Look Like A Head Shop

I recently moved into a new office space with big blank walls, and have been looking for some ways to add some large-scale color and texture. Tapestries seem to be having a moment, and I came across a few that leave the fractal vibes behind.

Indigo Mudcloth

Lately I've been on the hunt for the perfect indigo mudcloth scarf/shawl. I tend to get a little obsessive when I get something particular in mind. A vintage one I ordered and patiently waited for finally arrived today, but as soon as I started to open the package, HEAVY incense smell triggering a scent memory of the dollar store at the mall when I was a kid came pouring out. I guess I'll keep looking and dreaming!

Washable, Handmade Rugs from Lorena Canals

A rug can really transform a room, but if you have pets or kids, it can be risky putting down anything you care much about. I've racked up many a tab at the cleaners from having pets. For a large rug, cleaning bills can be $75 or more a pop! 

Thankfully, a rep from Lorena Canals Rugs (Spain) reached out to me recently and let me pick one out. Their rugs are washable at home, ethically sourced from New Zealand wool, and employ no child labor. The company also used some of their proceeds to build a school in the North of India that currently serves 104 children.  According to the press materials, Penelope Cruz and Chrissy Teigen are already fans, so, y'know, naturally I must have been third in line on that gifting list. 

I ended up choosing the black and white design below. Willie Mae the pitbull is loving snuggling up on it, and I love that I can throw it in our washer when it's time to clean. Some of my favorites are below. I love the tassel details on many of the rugs, and the fibers are soft, not scratchy, since the company began with children's decor before branching into more mature lines.

Nasty Gal Spring 2016 Western Wear

If you know how much I love western wear, then you understand how much the Nasty Gal spring 2016 lookbook is really testing my New Year's Resolution. If you need me, I'll be over here window shopping.

Spring Items and Good Vibes from Native Bear

Greetings from Park Slope, Brooklyn! Bambara had their vinyl release show last night at Palisades, so I flew up here for the weekend. I'm currently working from my friend Hilary's sunny dining room and full of delivery sushi. 

My pal Leela from Native Bear (Atlanta, GA) recently launched her new web store. I am smitten with her new designs for spring. I especially want the "sending you many good vibes" card to be my new standard stationary. So good! Some of my other favorites are below.
