I get a little nervous when I hear the phrase, "oh! check this out! these made me think of you!"

People seem to think that because I like siamese cats, I would also like a vintage purse with a siamese cat handpainted on in neon puff paint. Um. Especially painful when it comes from real life friends, as they would know, if they paid attention, that I don't ever wear logos, or you know, designs of actual things ever.

However this was not the case when Naurnie told me about Makelike (a shop). Thier current theme? Cactus! Check out their rad designs on wallpaper, towels, posters and more.


Even their landing page is so cute. Stay tuned for next theme (also close to my heart); National Parks!

  1. oh, man!! i totally forgot about this wallpaper, and now i'm in love with it again. i'm glad that i actually was 'on target' when i told you this made me think of you. (well, you + i do have the most fab taste in music EVER, so we must like the same wallpaper, right?! Um... maybe?)

  2. Oh god that vintage purse comment made me laugh so hard, because boy do I feel you on that! Just because I am obsessed with my cat doesn't mean I like cat decorations plastered around my life.

  6. my grandmother gave me a powder-blue hat with a maniacal-looking corgi airbrushed on it for christmas one year, so i did what any reasonable person would do and wore it in to work. i worked on a news desk at the time surrounded by about fifty people, and from that day on whenever we broke a story the news director would put the corgi hat on and do a little dance. so for every puffypaint cat purse, there's someone out there willing to rock it.

    and i am in love with the pointy cactus wallpaper. in LOVE. consider it duly noted and bookmarked for future desert homestead shack.
