a rainy monday brings a happy package from kelly, my beautiful use swap partner. inside i found a coffee for one coffee/tea press (straight from my wishlist!), a honey dipper and muji handkerchiefs. one of the patterns matches some jonathan adler napkins i bought years ago. happy accident, non? see all of the swaps here.

i've never been a big fan of patchwork blankets, but recently i can't stop thinking about them. after seeing this on skona life i've been kind of obsessed. i'm slowly working my way towards a knitted version but i've always thought thrifted sweaters would make an exceptionally cozy blanket as well. i love this patchwork quilt by mes textiles (via lena).

saw the richard avedon show at the cantor arts center this weekend. was lucky enough to follow around a tour group and hear tidbits of the stories behind the portraits.
in the first 2 rooms of the museum they have a small exhibit of pieces from the stanford's own collection, including a variety of animals that their son collected. i'm not one for dead animals on the walls or in cases but the owl was really really beautiful...

some of my favorite images from the january issue of elle decor uk. i love the white painted wood floors and the heavy wood table in the kitchen.
oh, and these chunky wood bowls....gorgeous! similar ones available through opium (unfortunately no online sales yet...coming soon.)
