bits & pieces

Back in the day I did a series called Pretty + Pictures where I introduced one etsy shop and one photographer to highlight every monday.  Well that was retired after a bit, but it didn't change my love for shops & pretty pictures so I'm today I'm introducing a new one called bits & pieces.  

Some of you that have been readers for a while know that I start a series and then just end them.  In a search for always finding a good balance and keeping my passion, having a blog and finding what posts I want to feature and stay consistent with is just trial and error.  I have been noting the things I like to write about and featuring rad shops has always been one of them, so I don't see this series going away anytime soon.  I hope you enjoy discovering a new shop or just seeing a shop you already know getting some love here.


SHIP & SHAPE was founded by Erin Smith, Maddy Nye, and Annika Kaplan in the summer of 2011. As designers and makers, they set out to create an online venue to showcase quality, handmade goods. In addition to creating limited edition pieces for the site themselves, the founders invite their favorite artists to contribute exclusive items to the seasonal collections as well. SHIP & SHAPE strives to make available unique handmade products to a discerning public.


  1. Ohhh, what a cool looking shop!The stacked beaded necklace looks so pretty! I am the same way when it comes to starting different series and ending them shortly after, LOL, I actually just introduced a new one 'Loves on a Thursday' for showcasing my pretty finds on the internet, which I will never get tired of looking for! I'd love for you to link this up, if you get the chance :)

  2. I have never heard of this shop/blog before! Thanks for sharing. I especially love the hanging planters!
