the joy of books

One of our favorite ways to spend a lazy weekend or fill time after work is with a good book. While we can’t imagine life without our iPads, Kindles, etc., there’s just something so special about an actual book (What can we say? We’re vintage lovers at heart.) We’re glad to see that artist Sean Ohlenkamp and…


silver buckle press

We are huge fans of letterpress here at Fossil—there’s something about vintage type that we can’t get enough of. One of our art directors, Betsy, recently ventured to Maddison, Wisconsin and couldn’t resist checking out the working letterpress museum, Silver Buckle Press. Director Tracy Honn was kind enough to show her around and give her a behind-the-scenes…


amelia rope chocolate

We’ve got a serious sweet tooth (Dessert for dinner? Yes, please.), and nothing quite satisfies this craving quite like chocolate. The only thing that could make a chocolate bar better than it already is is this amazing packaging from Amelia Rope. We love the combination of craft paper and colorful metallic foil. Did we mention…


food play

Artist Dan Cretu transforms everyday fruits and veggies into extraordinary works of art. Kind of makes us want to arrange our 4th of July fruit salad into something clever. Take a look at his Tumblr for more inspiring pieces. Images via Dan Cretu


our kind of camping

With camping season here, we’ve got s’mores and road trips with friends on the mind. Check out these amazing airstream campers, we would definitely find a reason to get out of the city every weekend if we had a nice set up like this! Images via 1 / 2 / 3


worley lighting

Tree Branch Candle Holders Citronella candles, lightening bugs, sparklers—it’s summer and the season wouldn’t be complete without a bit of flickering light. That’s why we adore the Etsy shop Worley Lighting. Whether you like an industrial look or something more nature-inspired, this shop has something to suit your electrical tastes. Our favorite is their collection…


in color

These Square Color Chip Boxes, one of the newest arrivals at Leif Shop, have caught our eye. (How could you miss them?) Made in Copenhagen, the boxes are crafted out of plexiglass and Danish wood. Then sliding top is the best part – and in translucent neon! What could be better? It’s the perfect place…


plattan denim headphones

Urbanears released these headphones—just right for the jean lover in us all.  These full-size headphones are as comfortable as they are cool. And just like your jeans, this denim will get better the more often you wear them.  Another cool feature is that they come with a ZoundPlug on the ear cap, which lets a friend join…


the american quilt

With Memorial Day just around the corner, we’re taking some time to remember one of our favorite American vintage traditions. These time-worn quilts from the Apartment  are true authentic beauties. They remind us of the many handmade pieces stocked in the family rooms and linen closets of our parents, grandparents, and extended family. Whether we celebrate…


visions of summer

We are always drawn to art with a certain quirky duality to it, and these photo-real paintings are just the thing for some colorful, summertime inspiration. The artist, Leah Giberson, recently came across our radar after she was featured on West Elm’s We Heart Handmade campaign. Each piece is a fusion of photo and paint,…
