Holiday Cheer

What a great way to end the day. We received a package from Twinkle and inside was this awesome hand-knit chunky Christmas ball! With a 6″ diameter, this ornament steals the Christmas decoration show. To get your own hand-knit Christmas ball, visit Twinkle’s website.

Internet love

Anime chest
Mondrian cake

We spend a significant part of our morning surfing the web to find goodies to share with you on our blog everyday. Today we saw these two exceptional objects of design. We love this anime chest (top photo) seen on the paris apartment. We think it possesses the same personality as the shop. The mondrian cake (bottom photo) was featured on Design*Sponge. Wouldn’t that be a spectacular wedding cake for a modern couple. Yum!

Shop improvements

This week we worked a little on our wrap counter. We added the paper we bought from the Maker Faire and then protected it with a piece of glass, and are very happy with the results!
Stay tuned for more shop improvements and have a wonderful weekend!

Many of our customers have inquired about our Nohohon-Zoku, so we wanted to let you know what they’re called and where to find them. Nohohon-Zoku are fist-sized bobble head toys manufactured by the Japanese company Tomy. These ones are solar-powered. It is said that the purpose of the figurines is to relieve their owners of stress. We found a web site that sells them, however, we do not take responsibility for your orders, and we urge you to do your research before you buy. We hope this makes it a little easier for your to track them down. Happy hunting!

A place to rest

The weather’s been so nice this week that we thought about getting some kind of outdoor seating for the front of the store. We’re really liking these cute Tiki Stools. We did consider traditional benches, however, the pop of color would really brighten things up. Bench or stools? The best part about the stools is their weight. There wouldn’t be a problem carrying them in at night, and their modern shape is a little offbeat. We like different. Have a great weekend and a wonderful Father’s Day!

Don’t make me over…

Happy Mother’s Day! We hope you’re enjoying your day with family and friends. Here at Josef we’ve actually been hoping for a makeover – a site makeover, and so we’re happy to announce the launch of our redesigned site! The new colors, logo, flourishes and nature friends are compliments of theforeststudio. Thank you Anna, we heart the new look and feel!
Have a great Sunday everyone.

Kudos to you who caught the Dionne Warwick reference. That one’s for you mom :)
