Lappalainen Mobiles

I’m a little obsessed with these Lappalainen mobiles made by Rivka Baake out of brass and copper from her Hanau studio near Frankfurt. The Black Circles Mobile has really got me right now, but I also love the the Copper Leaves and Circles Mobile, the Brass Hanging Sculpture Mobile, the big Brass Dots Mobile, and the Silver Leaves Mobile is absolutely elegant. They’re all incredible and with wedding season coming up, I think these handmade beauties would also be good gifts for design loving couples! More HERE.

Hello! Happy almost weekend, friends. I hope you get to spend the weekend with loved ones and Happy Mother’s Day to those of you with kiddos. I have so many amazing ladies in my life who are helping to raise a wonderful generation and some who have already raised fantastic humans. I know there are many more of you out there. I’d also like to recognize that this isn’t the easiest holiday for a lot of women and men (hi! I’m with you!) for a lot of reasons. Some of us are childless not by choice and have been down very painful paths, some of us don’t have mothers or don’t have loving mothers, some have lost their mothers, some have to celebrate and mourn at the same time, some have lost their children… I see you and you’re all in my thoughts along with the amazing moms. It can be hard to be at the social media party for this one, so if you’re in this camp with me — I recommend avoiding social media portals this weekend and just be kind to yourself. Do things that make you happy, treat yourself to something special, and remember: You are not alone. xx Jen
