One of the fun things about our work, especially as we expand our footprint both in retail stores and online, is all the other cool "makers," movements, curators, and commentators that we come across. We're excited to share them with you, and would love for you to share your favorites with us!
I'm not really sure how Poppytalk fell onto our radar or when, but we love this Canadian husband and wife team featuring all kinds of things beautiful and handmade - including some really great Etsy profiles. Recently, we tried this black bean and pumpkin soup recipe

We discovered Snowe through a facebook post of a fellow BC grad who's working on this awesome concept: beautiful - truly beautiful - and simple home accessories and essentials, cutting out the middle man to keep costs lower. Their site is peppered with cute mantras for home and entertaining and the photography is drool-worthy - who would have thought a bowl of fruit loops could look so gorgeous
Here in Denver, The Infinite Monkey Theorem is a huge deal. Their "Urban Winery" is located in a super cool and up-and-coming part of town, they can their wine and serve it in kegs, and they are constantly hosting all kinds of neat events. Denver is no longer the only city taking notice of this; as for Coppertops, Texas is the second stop for Infinite Monkey Theorem, and their CEO Ben Parsons recently was named one of Wine Enthusiast's Top Tastemakers Under 40
We're hardly the only ones to consider Cup of Jo a must-check on a regular basis. Joanna Goddard's blog has consistently topped all kinds of lists for quite a few years now. But we're especially excited to see them grow - we always love their gift guides, and can't wait to see what kind of fun new material comes with their expanding staff
