Obsession: Simply Lovely

I know, in these times, buying original artwork or a limited edition print isn't the first purchase on everyone's mind. However, if you experience a sudden, overwhelming desire to personally contribute to the stimulus package or if you need to buy that "special someone" an original gift, check out Melissa Moss's precious nature-inspired prints.

I originally discovered Moss's work on Abbott Kinney Blvd., Venice, California's uber-artsy playground. But, now, for only $35, Moss has made her digitally-colored ink drawings available on ETSY. I don't know if you'll be as obsessed as we are, but her priced-to-sell pieces inspire creative gift giving and an offering of simple beauty even in the hardest of times. Details: ETSY.

About Mod City Mom

After becoming mothers, sisters Sarah Romine and Leah Weyandt wanted to marry the activities and interests that they experienced before motherhood with their new found lives with children. This was not always an easy task—traveling to obscure places, shopping at off-beat boutiques, and sipping lazy-afternoon cocktails doesn't always fit neatly with parenthood. Stemming from their frustration, they meticulously searched, and continue to search, for activities, establishments, and entertainment that they take pleasure in and their families benefit from. The result? Mod City Mom.

About Sarah

Sarah is a passionate cook, fashionista, writer, actor, and mother. Like all actors, she ended up working at many-a-restaurant to make ends meet and shopping at countless bargain boutiques to maintain her sense of personal style. Her culinary journey, love affair with fashion, and desire to remain true to herself after becoming a mother are the inspirations for this site. Sarah lives with her husband and two sons in Chicago.

About Leah

A polymath wannabe, Leah loves books, films, music, cooking, and travel. After co-starting a writing and editing shop in 2002, Leah has spent her spare time frequenting her favorite cities, hangouts, and haunts. Her obsession with finding the new, innovative, and quirky is the impetus behind this site. Leah lives with her two sons and husband in North San Diego County.
