I have a penchant for monogrammed pendants and when I discovered these custom morse code necklaces, I was giddy an immediately putting one in my virtual shipping cart!
Handmade in the Portland studios of COATT and available in various colors, lengths and materials (personally I LOVE the silk option), it is truly a labor of love using gold or silver dots and dashes on silk cord, spelling names and phrases in morse code.
How clever. How delicate. How pretty. How modern. How irresistible.

A gem of an Etsy shop featuring the sweetest handmade decorations and pretty things. My heart skipped a beat when I saw this adorable pom bouquet. Cuter than cute and a zillion colors to choose from...(okay, maybe just 15 but it looks crazy colorful in the best way possible!)
I would love to wrap my office in this felted garland...
And this charming custom felt cake topper is the icing on the cake of pretty, handmade things!

Meet The Cozy Project.
Who can resist a name like that?!? I love to be cozy and I love a project. And I LOVE this adorable Etsy shop filled to the brim with handmade cozies from Portland.
I have a mild obsession and am known to collect cozies from places I have been, bands I have seen, weddings I have celebrated and the "just too darn cute to pass up" ones I find. The Cozy Project definitely falls under the "just too darn cute to pass up"category.
I can never have too many cozies to keep my coffee warm or my pint glass from sweating...so send some unique and chic ones to GetMarried and I will feature them!

Home is where the heart is...
Or where your Home T says it is! There is nothing better than a great tee. And I think these would be so adorable for a Save the Date or engagement photo as each shows off their state pride!
Better yet, a portion of the proceeds go to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and earmarked specifically for research.

Meet hiip San Francisco.
There's nothing I love more than discovering passionate, creative and just down right good people. And this is exactly what I found when I met Nicole, owner/founder of hiip San Francisco, in the pop-up shop at The Lab Event last weekend in Sonoma. Instant cool...and wait 'til you see her bags and hear the hiip story.
hiip launched with a mission to spread change in San Francisco. Inspired by the TOMS business model of one-for-one, for every hiip bag that's purchased, a hiip kit in donated to a homeless person in need. The hiip kit is filled with everyday essentials. hiip encourages those who are in San Francisco area to join her on hiip handouts. I love her desire to give back while helping build the community through purposeful interactions.
hiip styles feature names from the San Francisco Bay area...and there is truly something for everyone. So hard to decide!
So wear some charity and you will not only look great but you feel great. Just think...by buying a cute new handbag, you can help participate in changing the situation for a community.
