Via DesignSponge

A beautiful map design, titled American Flags Map from These Are Things.

I love the delicate lines, zig zags and crosshatch used to designate states. And of course the little flags! This is a great piece of simplified design, it would look great anywhere. It's a limited edition print of only 100, sold for $99. Should I get one?

Their shop has many more map prints for sale.

Sweet Paul Magazine

I was reading the PopSugar app on my phone and they linked to an online magazine called Sweet Paul. The cover of the new summer issue was so amazing I had to read the rest. It's awesome! Paul Lowe is a food and prop stylist and all around cool and crafty guy. The magazine is filled with great stuff (144 pages actually!). It's like a younger and hipper Martha Stewart Living, I'm sorry Martha.

Here's a link to the new issue.

Barton Hollow

While I'm on the topic of music, I'll just add that I'm absolutely obsessed with Barton Hollow from the Civil Wars. Do yourself a favor and listen to this over and over and over.

Codes and Keys

I've been loving Death Cab for Cutie's new album Codes and Keys. It's not as sappy as their previous album Plans, so that's good. It has a more electronic feeling and I'm liking it more and more each time around. And you can download it on Amazon for $5!
