Happy Friday // Fathom

Happy Friday!! It’s suppose to be a rainy one but it’s always nice to have one every now & then, for some arts & crafts time!

If you are looking for something to do this weekend, traveling or just want to explore your own city – check out this new site Fathom.  They have amazing useful guides for a lot of cities and I’m sure they will be expanding to more cities soon.  The include information that is useful for tourists or locals.  It’s a great way to find out about new places & activities to do in your city.

barking sands vintage

There are so many amazing Etsy stores, so every now & then I feel the need to share.  This vintage shop, Barking Sands Vintage has some amazing pieces to throw a room together.  Items range from 20th century American antiques to mid-century modern (and they ship internationally!). That lamp is killing me! Have some vintage pieces of your own? The shop owner, Jeni sometimes looks to buy certain items – see list here.

sort of coal

When I think of coal, I think of coal mines (Hunger Games!) or grilling.  Mixing both age-old Asian practice & Scandinavian design, Sort of Coal changes the way I ever viewed coal.  White coal naturally purifies the air, body, or water. For example, the first item (the water bottle & white coal) – by placing the coal in the water, it absorbs chlorine & releases minerals.  A coal this size is reusable for up to a month! The 2nd item, the Chikutan Sticks, will absorb impurities in your cocktail & give it a fresher taste. Check out their other products like shampoo, soap & necklaces – I’m tempted to try it!

gold teeth brooklyn

It’s officially Spring! Each spring I always feel like there are a ton of events, between birthdays & weddings – it’s a busy season.  Which is why I’m so glad I found Gold Teeth Brooklyn.  Their handmade cards are silk screened and one of a kind.  I recently picked up the shoes card for my friends that just got engaged!  Cards are available for purchase at their Etsy shop here or check for locations near you here.
