Meet Carmel Seymour.
I was first taken by her piece “The Secret Not Worth Knowing,” pictured above, when a co-worker sent it my way. The title itself lingered in my brain like a fine wine on the palette… one that you can’t quite describe but you just know you like it… a lot… and want more of it, a lot more. Read More
We have a new graphic design assistant on our team and she did these gorgeous watercolor illustrations of some of the images from our January catalog! We were so amazed we had to share them. I have always loved watercolor and they way artists use it sparingly to convey such detail and emotion, and she is so skilled at doing just that. Read More

Our creative team made these unbelievably cute Valentine’s Day downloads and I figured I’d post them today in case you want to print them out and give them to people tomorrow! I love them all so much but I think the fox is my fave ;) Read More
I saw these Bicycle Portraits on Miss Moss and was so intrigued by the photos and the story behind them. Over the course of a 2 year journey in South Africa, Stan Engelbrecht & Nic Grobler compiled portraits and stories from over 500 cyclists. The beautiful photographs have been divided into three books, each containing 55 stories as well as essays by local South African and major international cycling figures.
On their website, the photos are displayed along with the location of where the photo was taken, pin-pointed on a google map. In the books, the photos are laid out with little water-color depictions of the maps – so lovely and creative!
Go see more of the portraits on their website.
One of my friends does these sweet little watercolor paintings, and he did a Christmas set that was so cute I had to share…
Check out more of his work here, it’s pretty rad.
Happy Christmas Eve!
