Montreal-based photographer Irene Suchocki takes some magical photos. She blends light and imagery perfectly. Her photography has been seen on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and will soon be appearing as canvas wall art at Urban Outfitters. For more eye candy, take a look at her blog and Etsy shop.

You Smell started off as a student project for SCAD graduate Megan Cummins and has now become an actual line of soap. The packaging is presented with an initially insulting phrase (you smell) until the reverse side of the product is read (like a lemon, thanks to us!). Clever.

Jennifer Behr sure knows how to make an impressive hair accessory. Her pieces are made by hand in her Brooklyn studio and are inspired by materials: the richness of silks, feathers, stones, pythons, and leathers.

I can't remember where I found these (so if you know, do tell me so I can give credit!), but I wanted to share how good these interiors look. If I had a house, I'd want it to look something like this. I love the bright and airy feel of these rooms.

I am behind the times with this, but these designer wooden figures by Noferin are so adorable I had to post about them. The Pecanpals are made of 100% sustainably harvested wood and hand made with articulated joints and removable parts. The natural wood series will be available soon in a limited edition of 300. Find more images of the Pecanpals (including the original painted versions) here.

Matt Muller designed this gorgeous invitation for his wedding last year. Instead of the standard card format, his invitations were 14-page, 6x9" sewn booklets. He also designed additional items that tied the invitations to the ceremony and reception.

I found the most incredible collection of postage stamps and matchbox labels on flickr today. The Mid-Century Modern Sticker, Label + Stamp Club is a visual feast with over 1,500 items for you to lay your eyes on. These would look amazing enlarged and framed on the wall.
