Honor Roll

Sometimes I come across something so cute/sweet/charming/funny/pretty/inspiring/lovely that I just want to share it with you.  These are the things that have made my  honor roll.


I also write for Babble’s Family Style blog. Here’s what I’ve been sharing there…

    Great list, but the “Cut It Out” post bums me out…this person was obviously, uh, influenced by artist Jimmy Marble, who sells these banners at ReForm School in LA…he did our window displays around Valentine’s day this year and the phrases and text style are duplicates of his. Makes me sad. This is a shot a blogger took of one of our windows in January…

      Thank you for naming the artist. It looks like an exact copy, so my hope is that it was by him.

    I’d never heard of a “fauxdenza” until now and I LOVE IT!

    I mean, they may have purchased them from him directly but there’s no credit given so it’s making me worried. I hope they’re actually Jimmy’s…

      I hope so too. I tried to follow the original source, but it’s Tumblr, which tends to murk up original sources in general…

  5. I’m totally in love with the cityscape desk organizers. I’ve been wanting one. Are those q tips on that top picture? I swear some people creativity is crazy amazing.

    In the Poppytalk comments, Jimmy says that it’s his. Yay…no internet theft scandals this time! :)
