I design, make paper goods, and live in Seattle. One Fine Dae shares the many lovely things that I adore. I'm also a fan of Polaroids, Scrabble, classic movies, vintage, and sailboats. And Charlie Brown is my goofy little companion and unofficial paper shredder.
And also read emails. So say hello, I'd love to hear from you.

I am so entranced by 11 / The Beautiful Game, a luxury foosball (football) table that's designed and hand-finished by European craftsmen. It's currently on my things-I-wish-to-buy-if-I-won-the-lottery list, because not only is it gorgeous, retail price is at a whopping 48,000 euros, or roughly $67k!
...a clever, educational, and fun kerning game crafted by Mark MacKay for Method of Action. For all you type designers/lovers/fans who want to test your type kerning skills, or newbies who want to know what the heck kerning is, this game is it!
This game brings back so many memories. The days of drawing (and dreaming about) letter forms and numbers in type class during college certainly came rushing back.

Hi y'all. Hope you guys had a wonderful weekend.
As for me (and probably many other Seattleites alike), the most exciting thing that happened this last weekend was the game between the Seahawks and the Saints. I'm usually not one to watch football, but Saturday's game was one of the most exciting sporting events I've ever seen on TV. I was seriously screaming and jumping as Lynch bulldozed his way down the end zone.
Don't know what I'm talking about? Here's what you missed.
And even if you aren't a Seahawks fan, or don't care for football, you have to admit, that touchdown was pretty damn awesome. But if you need more convincing, how about seeing it set to the Super Mario Bros. tune?
The site is made up of several dozens of uniquely playful games and miscellaneous interactive activities. Even though I've retired from gaming after the heyday of Super Mario Bros 1, 2, 3 and World, (which I still think are some of best games known to man), the games on Orisinal can only be described by two words: cuteness overload! Don't let that fool you into underestimating the games' difficulty level, though. They may be cute and easy to play, but trying to make the score board could have you feeling like your mouse is permanently attached to your hand. My personal favorite is Pocketful of Stars.
But if you want to opt for something less challenging, and doesn't leave you wondering how you lost a few hours out of your day, then I recommend Flowers (pictured above). You can pick flowers from the garden, arrange them to your hearts content, then send them off to a lucky recipient. Fun, fast, and delightfully charming!
Good luck gaming.
