blogwatch: where we’ve been clicking this week


Shelterpop gives us a sneak peek inside Kanye West’s office. Love him or loathe him, you must admit he’s got style in spades.

Wheat has been a troublesome ingredient for some of us here lately. Thankfully, as Casasugar shows, using it as decor is much less irritating than ingesting it.

Cinco de Mayo has come and gone, but you can celebrate year round thanks to Craft. They’ve got a great tutorial on how to make a weather-proof papel picado out of oilcloth.

At a loss for a gift for the first-time homebuyer in your life? Thankfully, ReadyMade has got you covered with a roundup of cool custom rubber address stamps.

Here’s a helpful list from Consumerist for all you new parents (and gift shoppers): Things you don’t need to buy for a new baby.

Over at the BBC, we learned that UK fishermen have to work 17 times harder than they used to — for profoundly less fish. Guess a hundred years of poor managed fisheries takes a toll.

The Kitchn is talking tortillas — namely, the best way to heat them up. We’re big proponents of just toasting them over the burner (when we had a gas stove, that is!).

Making picado out of oil cloth seems awfully expensive when you can just buy plastic picado! I use the more spendy oil cloth for outdoor throw pillows!

Great links – can’t wait to check them all out!

I’m new to your blog (via Rejuvenation) and excited about what I’m seeing. I love some of the same blogs, I’m curiously attracted to those RH chairs too and a big houzz fan. :) Off to check out more.

Have a great week!


I ordered a return-address stamp from the ReadyMade list – one of the lovebird designs from NoteTrunk. Soooo adorable and I’ve already used it on the thank-yous from my wedding shower! Thanks!
