UncommonGoods graciously opened up the doors to its online storeroom and offered me to review almost any item of my choosing. Talk about being like a kid in a candy store, everything they curate is oh so cool. While this post is sponsored by UncommonGoods, the product picked and review thereof is entirely my own.
Meet Phoebe, the only real doormat that has ever graced my entryway. Remember when I made my own in the spring of 2011? It has been on our porch ever since, but wasn’t looking very new anymore. Phoebe, on the other hand, she’s a charmer, and I never realized how much impact a fresh doormat could bring to an entryway, even from a drive-by perspective.
She features a beautiful arrangement of springtime blossoms, and that’s what really sold me on her. Phoebe, as well as many of her beautiful friends, would make for a charming Mother’s Day gifts (side note: the holiday is just over 6-weeks away!).
While she’s still brand-spankin’ new to our little home (only sat on our front porch for 3 days before I snapped these photos), I think she’s going to hold up well and earn her keep. The colors appear to permeate deep into the bristles, and the fibers are bundled in a really dense, compacted way that makes me think it’s form will last for more than just this season. I’m comparing this to inexpensive printed doormats I used to buy for my apartments at Target, those babies were lucky to last more than a few months.
If you followed me as I documented the design and production of our wedding invites, you probably know by now that peonies are my favorite, and the abstractness of the make me smile every time I come home. My love for the peony runneth amuck, I can’t be held back, especially in a time of year when almost all of us out there are fighting some serious cold-springtime-blues. I’ve tried to capture the colors true to form, it’s beautiful and feminine.
You can buy a Phoebe mat here; she’s priced at just $38. And if you’re like me and always looking for good birthday gift ideas (I like the periodic table building blocks and makey makey seen here), or Father’s Day ideas like these, I think you’ll find yourself browsing UncommonGoods for hours.
Enjoy! Happy weekend!
