[music monday]


The time has come when the weather gets warm and Erika prefers folk to folktronica. It was a perfect time to discover The Lumineers, a Denver trio consisting of Wesley Schultz on guitar and lead vocals, Jeremiah Fraites on drums, and Neyla Pekarek on cello, mandolin, piano, and vocals. Woah. Awesome.

Their first full length album came out just last month and I love it. It’s been a perfect springtime soundtrack. I hope you enjoy this sweet little video!


1. Anyone need an adorable leather clutch? find yours here.
2. Portland, Oregonians, you are in luck. Artisan neighborhood honey in your city. Bee Local.
3. A great vegetarian cooking blog.
4. I love this quilt from Anthropologie.
5. If you haven’t visited Fine Little Day’s online shop,
I’m giving you the opportunity now.
6. I’m obsessed with this hotel in Reykjavik,
and this natural geothermal spa 40 minutes away.

Thorns . three oxidized sterling silver stacking rings

These wonderful pieces are made to order by Andrea Simic, a 24-year-old architecture graduate. She is a Croatian native who grew up in the small, medieval town of Knin and is currently living in Zagreb, the country’s largest city, where she also got her degree. Her modern and geometric designs are inspired by what she sees around her in product design and architecture. She credits her creative mother as her biggest influence, and has an intense love for animals (her shop was named after her beloved bearded collie.)

I am absolutely in love with all of her designs, but here are a few of my favorites.

Find her on Twitter here.
