Catbird primarily sells jewelry, and their Williamsburg, Brooklyn store is always too mobbed to even contemplate entering when I’m in the neighborhood. But I do like puttering around their website, and in so doing recently, discovered all sorts of other cool stuff they’ve got on offer, like this incense kitty from covetable French brand Astier de Villatte. I am also quite fond of this clever Marie Antoinette incense burner, also by Astier.
And I love how pleasingly old-school this John Derian paperweight—and the whole idea of a paperweight in general—is.
Who doesn’t kind of need a roll of gold foil tape made of copper for wrapping special gifts, hanging stuff on the wall, and etc?
This plate is a little sweeter than my taste typically runs, but I really dig it.
I could use a smallish pocket mirror for lipstick spot checks and the like, and I think the heart here looks so cool and hand-drawn.
And, OK, why not, I’ll throw in a few pieces of jewelry too, just for kicks: I like white diamonds all right, but I like black ones better because they feel less precious to me, and are cheaper. This necklace is graceful and just the tiniest bit goth.
I would love to add this gold ring to my stack.
And finally, I’m pretty certain I’ve shown you this snake ring before, but it’s so good—really simple and elegant—that I’m doing it again, so there you go.
