Built to last, this Three Tier Circle Shelf from Bride&Wolfe will be as precious as the heirlooms it showcases.

Whether hung in the bedroom, bathroom or office, it is sure to dress up any home.
Wake up to a perfect day with the sounds of birds chirping on a sunny morning. This clock tweets sweetly every morning, and is super-easy to use with its simple design.

Lisa Neimeth has five goals: 1) Create durable, unique, hand made functional pieces that rival the “Made in China” culture that is so pervasive...a “slow-dish” movement perhaps; 2)Make connections between community service and being creative; 3) Hang with her kids; 4) Embrace slow and local food; 5) Continue to enjoy lemonade. Combine this with the beauty of her clay tableware and you’ve got a recipe for success!
With so many cables weaving their ways through our techno-homes, the Leaf Tie from LufDesign can help bring a bit of nature and life back to our modern environments. Wrap the tie around those loose computer cords, iPhone charges, and kettle cables. The design of the tie makes the cables look like cute wrapped twigs, serving the dual purpose of design and efficiency!
Our eyes are set on these Large Blown Glass Hurricane candlelight holders from Sundance.

The stone with the right properties will inherently attract you, and your connection with the crystal is intrinsic. So discover more at their website and choose your piece...
