A little place to warm your hand or place your treasures.
For me, if it's got pockets, it's automatically better.

Here are some of my faves:

These handmade cutlery pockets, made by Kitchen Critic are so endearing.

This adorable apron by Courtney from Two Straight Lines is too cute for words,
I love the typed fabric worked into the eclectic collection.

these wine bags from Perpetual Kid   have 4 pockets in each bag,
 a perfect place to hold cute coasters, or whatever your heart desires.

Country Living calls this their Pocket Board.

I love the preppy nautical feel stripes give to almost anything.

Here are some of my faves:

I'll have three.
MarleyandLocker posted this chair on her elegant blog and I just about fell out of my chair.

While I'm not personally a journal-er, I love notebooks for all sorts of things.
This navy and khaki one from Olive Manna Papergoods is right up my alley.

I love the thick, bold, red stripes. I think this would look nice on a darker lamp, for a little contrast.

I would wear a hole in this bag.
Perfect for the summer and holding all those little things a fabulous lady needs.
Found in Straw Studio's plethora of finds.

I am really loving on striped wallpaper these days. Here is a modern example and below a more traditional one.

The stripes really create an elongation of the room whether grandiose like this foyer or small and intimate like the room above.

A little preppy flat! I love!
This would be the perfect way to break up some skinnies and a leather bomber!

I love the black/turquoise combo. These little boy shorts are from Victoria's Secret's Pink line ,
and it would be suffice to say that I am obsessed.

How about this personalized little number?
A great way to keep track of your janitor stash of keys.
Glitzy-Glam does a great job!

I am a sucker for funky glasses, so obviously these glasses and I had a very passionate romance via my computer screen. I love everything about them, except the fact that I don't own them.

and if your feeling really cheeky, you can store them in this cute case:

As so cleverly displayed on Velvet's website.

I would spend a lot less money at Starbucks if I had this cute mug to fill up.
or for you accident prone peeps, like myself,
this might be a better option:
Anjie from Pom Pom Emporium  sewed this devilishly cute mug.

and to end on a sweet note,
