hello, 2011!


hello model kitty




joseph senior created these insanely amazing hello kitty models. i seriously want 95% of these in my possesion, only catch is, they're only illustrations. pretty crazy, right? check out his whole flickr collection of hello kitty goodness here.

one chair at a time


it's a well known fact that i am obsessed with chairs, especially those of the mid-century variety. so, it should be of no surprise that i LOVE this 2011 chair calendar by story by mia. oh lordy. gimme.

care package

have parents who are always asking you for tech support? whether it's managing their email, setting up wireless printers, using "the facebook" - the list goes on and on. lucky for you, there's now teach parents tech, a nifty little site designed by the fun folks at google to help make your tech lessons, and your holiday breaks at home, a little more fun. too cute.

ona




ona camera bags are seriously the best looking things i've seen all year. i'm not particularly keen on their women's line, but the men's line is jaw dropping. multi-functional camera bags are a dream, especially when they just look like an extraordinarily good satchel. their roma carrying case is also great for the ladies who want to protect their camera gear in any purse they already own. check out the whole collection by ona here.

a sweet gatsby time

how fantastic is this great gatsby business card print by the heads of state? oh, you know, because their other work wasn't charming enough. get your own swanky letterpress goodness here.

petite collage


these two prints on wood are adorable, and a must have for anyone in love with either of these charming cities. i, of course, would love the san francisco print, a little reminder of our wonderful years in the bay...

darling clementine


we don't have many decorative pillows in our house, but i could think of a spot for each one of these. add them to your family, just in time for the holidays!

best made for your best man



i am always torn during the holidays on getting things the mr. wants, and getting him things i want him to have. case in point, the archival clothing rucksack by best made company. it's manliness at its finest, and absolutely irresistible if you ask me. pick up your own modern interpretation of the canoe pack for your favorite man here.

keeping it golden






pixar story artist, josh cooley, has been creating illustrations of famous movie scenes in the same style as little golden books, and they are absolute perfection. looking for the ultimate holiday gift for a movie buff? pick up a print or the whole book of illustrations at cooley's big cartel shop, here.

something in the air




richard wilkinson's process gif illustrations are absolutely stunning. capturing his work flow in photoshop, then creating an animated gif, wilkinson has created a stunning work of animating art. i could watch these all day...

(thanks notcot)

the bends

peskimo's the bends print is too adorable to not gift to someone this holiday season. order yours today here.

minimalist superheros

(thanks joi!)

art on globes



i have a serious globe addiction and could likely fill an entire house with them. sometimes, i'm more obsessed with the stand, than the globe itself, and this would be the perfect solution to fix up some ugly maps. for those of you not in the diy spirit, you can buy custom art globes that are absolutely stunning. i'm smitten with them all. order yours today here.
welcome to the end. of the page that is.

say hello.
