New Purse!

I found this carpet and cream leather gem for $6 at the Central Square Goodwill last week. It has no tags, so I don't know if it's anything special, but it is very special to me. I couldn't leave the store without it.

Broken Dish Pendants

The Broken Plate Pendant Company -

Polished -

I temporarily misplaced one of my favorite broken dish necklaces. I was devastated because the shop I got mine at in Cambridge no longer carries them, so I began scouring the internet for a replacement. Luckily, I found my lost one. But while hunting I came across some very cool broken dish jewelers, including The Broke Plate Pendant Company and Polished.

Painted Tiles by Amy Adams

Design*Sponge is one of the few websites I follow on a daily basis. I'm addicted. They are constantly updating their site with clever and quirky design concepts. Above is a great weekend project idea submitted by Amy Adams of perch! design. I think I might try something like this in my new apartment (now that I have space for projects!). Thanks for the great idea Amy.

"Stairway" Print by Tamara Thomsen

This great $20 print by Tamara Thomsen was my catalyst for the prettygoods. I came across it on and sent the link to three or four people before deciding to create a central location to post all my fun finds. Thanks for the inspiration Tamara!
