Oh Dier :: Faceted Ring Boxes

My style twin Adrienne pinned these incredible ring boxes this morning and I loved them so, SO much, I simply had to track them down. Turns out, each box is made by hand from salvaged wood by one Mr. William Dohman aka Oh Dier. Aren't they rad??

I don't really have rings to store (other than my wedding ring, which seems to be permanently stuck on my finger... possibly due to the overzealous consumption of biscuits and gravy), but I do love tiny boxes and other interesting vessels... so, I may just have to get one. The only hard part, of course, is choosing which of the 15 colors I love best!

Faceted Ring Boxes by Oh Dier: $45

Happy Weekend and Cinco de Mayo Eve!

All sorts of goodness is coming up: Cinco de Mayo tomorrow (which also happens to be my wedding anniversary), Mother's Day, and the Queen's Diamond Jubilee for my UK friends. I've been celebrating these occasions all over the Internet the past few days -- check out my posts for some great holiday ideas as well as other assorted goodies!


These DIY paper calla lilies would be the perfect finishing touch on any Mother's Day gift!

For my UK dog-loving friends, don't miss the chance to get a custom portrait of your favorite pooch in the Jubilee Style!

This DIY vintage-inspired wool and leather camera case is simple, beautiful, and e-a-s-y!

Cinco de Mayo wouldn't be Cinco de Mayo without some piñata love: check out this roundup of 7 DIY piñata projects or try your hand at making these piñata cookies instead!

If you need ideas for Mother's Day, don't miss my Mother's Day gift guide over on Curbly!



Not celebrating? I've got loads of other weekend projects to try: DIY marbled glassware, a spring antler centerpiece, some mini DIY gold leaf notebooks, or a colorful driftwood coat rack.

Also, check out this interview with one of my favorite people ever, Erin Loechner and her pups Bernie and George!

This list of dog names for graphic designers cracked me up!

Speaking of, do you take your dog to work? If you could, would you?

If you're looking for a distraction, nothing's better than photos of cute pups! Check out Ms. Beatrice and the dogs of Apartment Therapy's Small Cool Contest!

And finally, light up your space with one of these cool DIY lighting projects: a hanging bulb pendant light or a modern wood cube pendant light. Both are equally awesome!


Happy weekend!



Bonbon Lamps :: Ana Kras

Each Bonbon Lamp is handmade by Serbian designer Ana Kras. They've got a bit of a 70s feel, but I can totally get down with that. Check out more of her work here!
