this pitcher is an even-more-beautiful version of the tumblers i’ve been trying to replace (the last of my set sadly broke).  notice the gold leafing detail?  
i love the thin, simple design that makes this piece both modern and elegant.

Making headphones in Brooklyn by hand. Our 1st GIF - we’re part of the internet now.

not only are these headphones made locally, but they are reasonably priced too, which is so impressive given that there are so few electronic manufacturers in the US.  Headphones start at $75.

line and label has online and brick and mortar shops at www.lineandlabel.com and 568 manhattan ave in greenpoint, brooklyn respectively.
i like kate oriley’s tribal, timeless aesthetic.  she makes things that look like they would fit on the streets of morocco, the ancient pathways of turkey yet somehow are modern for todays world.
earrings shown, by boe gold:  $45

well, live and learn…but don’t give up!!

i was trying to increase my following, give a free product that i love, all the while support the MIUSA movement.  

somewhere along the way (perhaps many) i screwed up.

nobody…that is correct, not one person signed up for my give-away (in case you missed it, it was embarrasingly: http://madelokal.tumblr.com/post/91941624758/madelokal-paper-giveaway-i-love-lists-even.  

failure just makes me try harder sometimes, so i have not given up yet. 

if you are still reading, thank you for bearing with me.

people from seattle say you can always tell a tourist by those who carry or use an umbrella.  jeff has been looking for a good rain jacket.  i think freemanseattle has some really great looking options.  i love the drawstring’s pop of color!
