we heart design*sponge

If you've been living under a rock (or just working day in and day out with zero breaks, only to crash on the couch the moment you get home X REPEAT EVERY DAY) then this is the first time you've heard of design*sponge, a Brooklyn-based blog penned by Grace Bonney.  

Grace started design*sponge in 2004, and spends her days unearthing, researching, and sharing the coolest of the cool with her readers several times a day.  

I had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Bonney recently when she was out in Portland.  She stopped by the grayling studio and showroom and picked up one of our raw agate rings after lunch at Olympic Provisions.

A few days later, I started getting emails from around the country inquiring about the ring she bought.  I was puzzled.  How do people even know about the ring?  They're weren't online yet.  Then I realized.... 

Some rad earrings from fellow-Portland designer Better Late than Never were also pictured (I first drooled over BLTN pieces at Sara's Crafty Wonderland booth last Spring).  

What an honor!

on design*sponge, scroll down for the ring...

Thanks, Grace!
