Awesome Item of the Day
I was psyched to discover this sweet little shop last night. Usually I am a bit wary when I’m looking at too many different kinds of things in one place — there’s just something about seeing hats, pendants, and paintings all in the same shop that give me pause as a buyer. Not that the seller isn’t great at all three of those things; I just think it’s difficult to pull together a unifying theme amongst such different creative mediums.
No so with Devon‘s shop, Stella + Hodge. For the first time I found myself thinking, “wow. That stationery and those pieces of jewelry really look like they BELONG together.” It’s very clear that Devon knows who she is as a designer — her vision really comes through in both her paper goods and her beaded items. Everything is unified, bright, clean – I really love it.
Given that my creative energies are focused on sewing these days, I just had to pick these sewing-themed cards as today’s Awesome Item. I love the colors and the simplicity of each design. The make me want to write little notes and mail them off to all of my friends.
