stump totes

the totes i had printed arrived yesterday! i think they turned out really well. i'll put both in the shop tomorrow- perfect for gifting...

oh joy!

the lovely joy (from one of my favorite blogs, oh joy!) was kind enough to ask me to participate in her "currently loving..." series. the series has different artists and designers capture a moment of their style and what they are loving right now. check out the full post here!

i love when i find old photos of people on stumps. they're the perfect spot to stand and pose.

log box

i ordered a bunch of plastic log boxes last year and was really disappointed with the way they looked. i decided to try and paint them into something i liked better, and this one is almost done.

vase love

i got these beautiful little bud vases here. they are perfect for a few sprigs of scented geranium from my garden.

partial sneak peek

here's a peek at a limited edition, hand silkscreened print i made for the shiny squirrel. it will be launched for sale there around the 15th of this month along with a new batch of special softie surprises. i'll post about them again when they are available for purchase.

i'm famous

just kidding- but my name was in the newspaper today! there is a cool article in the sf chronicle today about "the decor shop as gallery" featuring rose and radish, rare device, the curiosity shoppe, and doe. the sixty forty print club is also mentioned- an idea i came up with as a way for people to purchase affordable, original prints while supporting independent artists and donating to a charity. speaking of which- there are only 6 of my "round" prints left! hurry and get yours- the donation from this print will go to 826 valencia.

i had no idea perfume dispensers even existed.

the wood holiday banner is featured in adorn magazine's indie gift guide this month! it looks like a really good issue with lots of great holiday ideas.
