Kiva Ford: smaller is cuter.

15 Jun

I came across Kiva Fords gorgeous little glass creations a couple of months ago when I was thinking about glass blowing. Then I forgot to share them. Now I remembered! There is almost an air of mystery when it comes to Kiva’s stuff. Like how it’s even possible to make something so small look so amazing and dynamic. Wouldnt it be the most cutest thing ever to be able to have a little collection of these guys in a corner on your bar? Or in the window sill? Man they’d look good. Ne-who here’s some more of their good lookin’ things.
$24.00 I feel like my great Aunt Juanita when I see this teeny Klein bottle. I know ch’all got some Aunties like that ya know ya know the one that grabbed your face cheeks when you were little and nearly ripped them off and started to talk to you like you were a (small) cute animal.
$30.00 Seriously the magic just keeps getting more magical.
$66.00 I was thinking of Gretchen from Eichlerific when I saw this.
$65.00 Ha! Also here is an intense photo from Kiva’s shop of the seller doing they thing.
Glass blowing looks hella (HEAVY) metal. I like to think the intensity of this picture is evidence that all this stuff is very magical and great…Yup. … … … BYE.

Vintage trends store

15 Jun

Vintage trends is an online store full of vintage goodies. I am especially awe-ing and oooo’ing all dem pillows they have. Here’s a couple that I picked out that I thought were especially captivating.

32.00 INSANE flower power and colors of oppurtunity right hur all.

24.00 I think its the white fluffy stuff on this pillow that makes me think cupcakes. I am totally ok with having something in my house that is a reminder of such a delicious treat.

18.00 I have a square blue guy like this. He’s cool. Just sits on the couch and demands to be looked at. Ya know typical loud blue pattern behavior.

18.00 How adorable are these flowers? All solid and different patterns. Mah Mah. Last but not least:

24.00 BOO yah. I am really down for what people call “vintage ethnic” prints. They always have really rad colors, and patterns/loads of oppurtunity to add some color into your home. The store has loads more if you wanna dig around and find some you personally dig.

Lotsa Lamps.

1850.00 First I ama start with this bootiful thing. Do you remember that crazy military fold up desk? It looks like this:

The desk above has been striped and polish and man does it look great. The green on is also available for 750.00.

$50.00 for the pair in El Cerrito.

$300.00 for this “Eames” styled book case. (Mondrian! -Serene)

75.00 for this cuteeee lil’ desk lamp in SF. There’s a white one similar to this right now at scout too!

$350.00 in Oakland.

$75.00 (?) not too sure how much this arc lamp is because it’s listed with two other things in the post. :S

Ana Ventura creates some of the cutest little characters one could find. They are a bootiful balance of dainty and bold (check out dem colors and patterns yo).

383.06 Look at that orange, green, white, and all dem patterns going on. I wish I could pull off an outfit half as good as this.

11.79 Itsa TAPE! Think of all the wonderful packages you could make more wonderful with these little dudes dancing on the top of your brown parchment paper.

103.11 Two things I personally have been crafting-making as of late. Them embroidery hoops and houses! I really dig the white on that grey. Looks pretty classy.

36.83 Winter days screen print. MUSHROOM HEAD!

147.33 All the different tools Ana uses is incredible. Makes me assume her workplace is a treasure mine full of goodies to experiment with. Check out her store for other goodies not mentioned here!

I’m sitting here on this beautiful morning (listening to Lil Wayne) and thinking about how absolutely wonderful you all are. Seriously, I am so excited to be apart of this blog. Last night at the Scout Living Grand Opening I must have said, “I met them through Mimomito” a million times. You’re all so great and I have so much gratitude for all of you who came out to support Scout Living. It really means the world to us. Thank you!

With that, the grand opening party was a huge success. If you haven’t made it in yet, please do so. You won’t regret it. Here are some photos:
