I’m loving these vintage collages by artist Valerie Thai. See them all along with her stationary, woodburnings and accessories on her etsy shop, Cabin + Cub Design.

solar vintage

Elena Corchero is a designer working with technology and incorporating traditional craft techniques, combining solar technology and textiles. Here are some of her beautiful accessories, that collect energy during the day, and become luminescent decorations in the dark. I love that these are completely beautiful on their own, and their function and technology do not define the design. Check out the lost values projects for more information.

nelson bc

Head on over to Poppy Talk and read the week’s worth of guest postings from Cartolina Cards designer Fiona Richards. Fiona takes us on a blogging journey of her small artist community of Nelson BC. I loved seeing all of the beautiful scenery, buildings, art, craft and businesses flourishing in the remote town.
Go see for yourself!

very beautiful and inspiring. Thank you! Long ago I was hiding out in Canada for a stretch of time and had to walk out of BC back to the States in my moccasins...a long story that my (grown) children don't quite appreciate - but I still am certain that British Columbia is the most beautiful place in North America.

These photos are so beautiful I can’t even stand it! From a Japanese fashion label called writtenafterwards. Can you believe the last photo is the original piece of lace used to make the globe??

This reminds me of a passage from Daniel Pinkwater's "The Snarkout Boys and the Avocado of Death", in which an artist painted a room and everything in it white and then painted it on a canvas.

embroidery by nea

embroider%20neck.jpg
Nea makes these “wall wear” cross stitch embroidery decorations, and has transformed the idea into a necklace as well! I love the metal details mixed in with the threads! Check out the nea etsy shop and the creativadoration blog for more info. (The blog is half in French and half English, but you can always enjoy the pictures!)

Aren’t these frames so cool? Recently we got an email from Free People girl Chelsea Wilcox, who asked us if we might like to see some picture frames she made out of Free People catalogs. We did, and we loved them so much, we wanted to share them with you!
Here’s a little note from Chelsea, who is pictured on the right in the top two photos:
“I’m 18 years old and an avid lover of Free People clothes! I recently made a bunch of frames decorated with snippets from the two most recent Free People magazines. I just cut out all the designs I liked into squares and rectangles from clothes and patterns that were within the magazine. Then I placed the cut-outs on a photo matte-board that had been cut to place a picture inside. You don’t really have to use a matte-board, a hard piece of cardboard would work as well. And, you do not have to have the matte-board pre-cut, you could also glue your photo in the center and work around it–but having it pre-cut makes the photo a lot more evenly placed!”
I think this is such a cool idea. Thank you for sharing Chelsea!
Check out this older post for another cool way to craft with Free People catalogs!

I discovered ruby’s lounge animal heads on etsy’s featured seller. Jennifer Khoshbin hand crafts these beautiful animal heads from resin and graphic wallpapers. See the whole series of Handmade Wilderness-The Paper Deer Head Project on her etsy shop and read the feature interview while it lasts!

Oh! i loved this post. You know i have discovered Ruby 2 years ago and i immediately bought the third on the list you have here. The pink and green and pale blue is a gorgeous head. I have placed it in my living room and it looks fabulous. I am in love with this piece. Imagine she posted right to Greece. I was waiting to have it for a whole month because of the distance, but it was worth it. Just found your blog, it is really special. Love from a Greek deco blogger. P.S. of course i will link back to you.

incredible artwork. I love all of it, esp. Orbit from Book Project 1 @ www.jenkhoshbin.com and the red cardinal deer head.

OK, with brooms that look like that, I'd sweep every single day and love doing it. The hangers are great too!!!

You might have already discovered these, since I’ve talked about Love Forever so many times, I’m sure you have the blog bookmarked. But seriously, how amazing are these garlands? I’m in love. I want to go home right now and cut up little shapes paper and string them all over my ceiling.

Sophie Cuvelier is a French artist, from what I can tell because her site is all in French. But click on Diaporama and browse through all of her photos; I think there are a million of them. She also sells some garlands and Selvedge, and it looks like through her site too.

you can also make these using those circle shaped price stickers that you can buy at any office supply store. check out this tip from martha: http://www.marthastewart.com/good-things/dot-garlands

knitted wall cover

I walked into the NY boutique LP & P this weekend, and I just stared at the back wall for a good two minutes before the shop girl snapped me out of it. The entire back wall of the store is covered in this super chunky huge amazing knit wall covering. Giant flowers and cables in tonal grey colors. It is amazing. The shop girl explained that they are known for their knitwear (which was not obvious from the summer collection, understandably) and they do doggie clothes and women’s clothes as well. The shop is named after designer Catherine Fung’s two dogs, Little Prince and Piggy.
