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.

Wow. Just found out that Billet carries vintage goods. (Since when?!) And, like everything else in their shop, the items are lovely. Sigh, I wish I knew how to read their site...
I've been on the hunt for a nicely aged vintage suitcase for some time now. So far, the ones above (from here and here) are my favorite finds. I would love to own a few, stack 'em up, and have them sit next to my bedroom window. Then maybe find an old, one-seater couch to keep my makeshift table company. It would be a nice and cozy little nook to lounge in during rainy afternoons, complete with a cup of tea and a Jane Austen novel.
Or, having one of the suitcases serve as my nightstand next to my bed, would be another worthy option.
How would you put an old suitcase to use?
I came across this vintage sign from Lackluster Co. today and didn't even think twice before clicking the "Add to Cart" button. It pretty much sums up my professional and personal life. Not in a bad sense, mind you, but in the sense that there is give and take to everything we do, and for every negative, there's always a positive (and vice versa) to cancel each other out and keep life's equilibrium in tact. Plus, I love the fact that the sign is seafoam green (one of my favorite colors), and the illustration that goes with it is just perfect. I'm sure we've felt like that once or twice in our lives.
This week, I'm attending An Event Apart for work, and having a fabulous time. I've enjoyed so many of the speakers talk about their philosophies and share their expertise in the world of web design and development. It's also nice to get out of the office for a few days, be surrounded by an intelligent group of people who care about and love beautiful and practical design, and bust a move during the middle of the day. Say what?! Yeah...Thriller.
If you're interested in learning about some of the awesome things that have been (and will be) discussed, feel free to visit afeedapart.com and follow all the tweets!
Am really thankful for the amazing people I work with and for the opportunity to attend events like this. Yay to NOT working for The Man!
Beautifully aged pieces I'd want to own, from simply objekts.

Hope everyone is doing well. Amazing that today is the last day of February, yet this supposedly short month has felt extremely long to me.
Maybe because there's been a whirlwind of things that have happened, or the fact that it's been extremely cold the past week, or that I'm really, really wishing for summer. Whatever it may be, I'm just glad to say goodbye to February.
Hopefully March will be a warmer, calmer, and happier month.
Oh, and I think I'm back again.
