ACCESSORIES

Iittala Jars

Iittala Jars are certainly a beautiful way to store away your odds and ends in the kitchen, bathroom, or office. The jars are mouth-blown of non-leaded glass and have airtight lids with a rubber seal. Considering the cost, you might want to use these jars for areas where they’d be seen- maybe on open shelving in the kitchen- because it’d be a shame to hide them away in a cupboard or cabinet. Note: You are able to purchase jars separately, however the links below are for sets of 5, in either small or medium sizes.

Meg Callahan Quilts

Holy. How nice is it to see some super modern graphic patterns applied to quilts? Matter has three of Meg Callahan’s quilts entitled ‘Spine’, ‘Ada’, and ‘Harrah’ on their website, and while the prices aren’t listed, we’ll assume they’ll not be what most of us would call affordable. They are, however, what most of us would call amazing. The Spine and Ada quilts use digital printing and industrial machine quilting while Harrah is an entirely hand stitched patchwork.

Japanese Shouting Vase

This vase is definitely not the prettiest of things, but it sure does pack a useful punch of a function: it absorbs your screams, shouts and frustrations. When you release your expletives/anger, only a whisper soft version comes out through the tiny hole at the base (do be sure to use it in a wise location). The gift scenarios are endless, of course, so it wouldn’t hurt to bookmark it for the future.

Tally Notebooks

Let’s hope that your victories well outnumber any regrets or expectations, but nevertheless, you can now keep track with these 100% recycled notebooks. Keep in mind these notebooks are of a smaller size, so they’d be easy to carry around in a pocket or bag- better to keep your tally accurate, I suppose. Could be a nice small gift for a graduate, depending on your point of view (as in, don’t just get them the ‘regrets’ notebook, that’s just mean).
