Pretty Kitty

How cute are these cat rings? I’m not even a huge fan of cats (you can mostly blame my allergies), and I want one of these!

{Kitty Ring, $40 for steel /$52 for gold}

This cute ring design comes in either polished steel or gold plate, and can be found at one of my favorite stores, Butter Home. They are made in England and are the purr-fect (sorry, couldn’t resist) way to infuse some subtle whimsy into your accessories.

Birthday to Go

As I’ve gotten older, my group of friends has gotten increasingly scattered. For example, my two best friends from high school and I went from living 40 minutes away from each other to living on three separate continents. As you can imagine, this means it becomes harder and harder to celebrate life events together, such as birthdays. I am a huge fan of birthdays in general, and all of the fanfare that come with them, so you can imagine my delight when I came across Acme Party Box’s birthday party in a jar:

Birthday Party in a Jar

{Birthday Party in a Jar, $21}

This adorable item consists of a mason jar hat contains a wool felt crown, a biodegradable extra large balloon, a candle, and recycled paper confetti. It seems pretty easy to re-create, but Acme has already done a stellar job in packaging this perfectly. It’s a surefire way to brighten up someone special’s birthday, no matter how far away that person may be!

Feeling Grateful

There are few things as under-utilized as a hand-written thank you note. Don’t get me wrong—I love the convenience that email and technology have brought to this world, but getting that thoughtful card in the mailbox never gets old. I especially love this confetti design from Sugar Paper:

{Mint Thank You Cards, $18 for a set of 6}

I once got a set of thank you cards as a Christmas gift, which ended up being perfect because I had so many notes of appreciation to write to people after the holiday! It’s a very handy form of stationery to have around the house, and expressing one’s gratitude never goes out of style.
