French Friday: Coloriage!

In keeping with the coloring theme from Thursday, I thought I’d devote this installment of French Friday to some vintage and modern French coloring books:

Throwback Thursday: Crayola Crayons

Few childhood sensations compared to the feeling of running my fingers along the tips of a new box of Crayola Crayons. Especially the 64-pack, which was basically the Holy Grail of crayon boxes. Built-in crayon sharpener? Yes, please!

For this installment of Throwback Thursday, I give you the evolution of the Crayola Crayon box over the years…

Enjoy!

Crayola inspiration even seeped its way into a Nike Dunk shoe design:

Wordshop Wednesday: Present and Correct!

I could (and do) spend hours daydreaming about owning every single one of the objects stocked at Present and Correct. They should probably send me some free goodies to satiate my delusions of vintage grandeur.

Enjoy:

OK, I should stop. I’ll end up posting the entire website.

So, seriously, go check them out. But don’t buy out the store. That’s my job.

Wordshop Wednesday! (3.0)

This week, I am pretty much obsessing over Uppercase Gallery’s “Eclectonotes,” which includes an insane collection of ephemera, vintage, and repurposed pieces. What’s more (as if “Eclectonotes” are not mind-altering in themselves), Uppercase’s online shop contains some of their priceless “Old School”-themed items, vintage reproduction posters, various design books, paper goods, desk accessories — the list of awesomeness goes on and on and on and…

If you have not been sufficiently won over, then I just don’t know what else to do for you.
