At the risk of using an overused work, I am OBSESSED with etsy.com. I think they need to hire me as a personal etsy shopper. Anyway this is more cool etsy stuff. ThisIsKate has cool unwatercolory watercolors. She also has a website www.thisiskate.com, but I'm partial to etsy.

Today I was at the High Museum of Art. I always see something new, but today I saw these really awesome African quilts. Click here for the High. Then I remembered seeing a quilt at my uncle's house this weekend that I really liked. Then I realized I love quilts. Quilts involve so much work, creativity and convey a piece of the person who made them. The best example of quilts as art are the quilts of Gee's Bend. These are quilts made by ladies from Alabama (woowoo) and they make these amazingly artistic pieces that are all over the country in museums. It's great for L.A. (lower Alabama) and great for culture in general. Click here for just a few of the quilts.

J.Crew has really fantastic summer clothes out. I was in the store today, and saw this cute classy dress. It's actually better in person. It reminds me of some of the Jackie O-like outfits I inherited from fashionable grandmother. In case youre wondering, Jacquard (like this dress) is named after Joseph Marie Jacquard who invented a loom that weaves this kind of fabric. Just FYI. J.Crew click here.

Well I sure do wish I had something to send out invitations for. Something for which to send out invitations, should I say. I LOVE paper good, stationary, etc. and LINEA CARTA (click here) is the best I've seen yet. SOMEONE please let me plan their wedding so I can do this and kick start my wedding planning business. It's also on Etsy.com of course.

Design Public is sort of like Jonathan Adler meets Kelly Wearstler at Ikea. So cool and so cheap! Go here: DESIGN PUBLIC. I love the Amenity items. And free shipping for over $50 is pretty amazing considering it's furniture, etc.

Etsy.com is such a good resource for all things handmade. There are so many creative and talented people in the world. I like all this MadeByStella jewelry. You'd pay alot more for the similar jewelry in stores, and it wouldn't one-of-a-kind and probably not handmade.
