Now that we are past Labor Day, I am fully into nesting mode. I will admit that I am a little scared of this up coming winter – as it will be the first that I spend alone up here in the mountains of New Hampshire. Although being in ski country has its definite benefits, the months are long, the days are short and the snow is deep.
One way I plan to combat the winter scare is to ensure my home is comfortable and pleasant. Not surprising to Lost Cowboy fans, I have been seeking out interesting purveyors of products designed to help us make our homes attractive and comfortable. A perfect such example is Bailey Doesn’t Bark, “a contemporary home and life accessories company, offering hand crafted tableware, home accents, jewelry and locally produced paper goods.”
From Bailey Doesn’t Bark’s founder Re Jin Lee: “Inspired by memories, dreams and nature, I strive to create simple yet uniquely witty designs to be enjoyed throughout everyday life. Since I began Bailey Doesn’t Bark in 2008, I have been committed to making eco and ethically conscious decisions from design to production. It is my intent to inspire not only with my designs but with the philosophy infused into production.”
Bailey Doesn’t Bark’s collection of home goods include some great things that definitely have my mind going. However, as is often the case, I was distracted by the paper goods they offer. I love this Heart Card Set, which are cards with an embossed heart that can be customize with chalk. I love anything with a chalk board (remind me to tell you about the time I bought a can of chalkboard paint and applied it to just about every flat surface in my apartment).
