hooked on hooks

I’m wild about this Nautilus Hook from Aero Home. Fifteen dollars.

Mediterraneo hook. Thirty two dollars for two. Alessi. Throw in a splash of color with these modern coral hooks.

Branch hangers for twenty dollars (set of two). Container Store. Perfect for a modern mountain home.

Seahorse hook. OBX Trading Group. Such a steal at eighteen dollars.

Pectin Nobilis Peg. So many great items with shells to be seen at Pacific Shells. This little ditty is only thirteen dollars.

Starfish single hook. The Knob Store. Twenty six dollars. I can see a row of these in my entryway.

from glouster to the colorado river

From the sea rounded rocks of Glouster, Massachusetts to the river rocks found in the Colorado River.  This ring reminds me of both … and so many places in between!

Trevor Oneil makes seriously cool jewelry, not to mention his sensational furnishings and sculpture. Don’t miss out on this one.of.a.kind ring, made out of river rock and maple.  You don’t need to be a rock star to be able to afford this lovely piece of wearable art at just forty-eight dollars.

hanging gardens

Stylish gardens. I love the look of succulents planted in transparent pots. Living in their own little bubble. For twenty eight dollars, augury puts together a healthy and beautiful arrangement of succulents along with all the necessary soil and rocks, giving you the opportunity to put everything together once it arrives on your doorstep. We also like Alexis Tricoire’s terrarium which has it’s own light source which assists the plants growth. via the the horti-culturalist.

sea life melamine

Back from Boston on holiday visiting my folks. Being in their home brings back fabulous family memories of days on the beach and living in a house built in 1818. My favorite is the five pm cocktails where we all sit and catchup.

Splendid sea life imagery. These four coasters come as a set from Thomas Paul. Delightfully inexpensive at sixteen dollars. Found at 2Modern.

naturally horn

Rustic but refined. A natural for serving salads, this rounded fork and spoon set is expertly hand-formed from natural horn. Prized for its rich color and translucent grain, this neutral material does not alter the flavor of oil, vinegar, or delicate salad greens. Under $50. Available through Sandra Jordan.
