Etsy + Whole Foods Market: Ingredients for Creativity

I was recently contacted about participating in the Etsy + Whole Foods Market: Ingredients for Creativity event this holiday season. I jumped on board and I’m very excited to be working on some of the store decorations as well has teaching three DIY tutorials. The first class (napkin rings) will be on next Tuesday. The other sessions are scheduled for December 9th & 11th, and I’ll share more details for those soon!

I’m honored to share this opportunity with the incredibly talented Kristen Solecki. Her first DIY class is today. She’s teaching a few more classes so be sure to check her Facebook page for her next dates.

For more information on this collaboration, please visit the Whole Foods and Etsy websites.

I’d also like to shout out a very hearty Thank You! to Allison, of SpaceCraft Studios, for recommending me!

Lovely bones

I treated myself to some of Aileen’s artwork recently. It arrived yesterday and this Instagram photo pales in showcasing it’s splendor. But that’s for another photo session! 🙂 Currently, I’m trying to decide how to showcase it in our space. We have a pocket watch dome to display an old family timepiece but it’s brass so I started a search for something in a silver finish. It lead me to the discovery of this amazing timepiece, a Momento mori pocket watch.

‘Memento mori is a Latin phrase translated as “Remember you must die” (and the origin of the English word memento, which appeared as memento mori, “remembrance of death”). It names a genre of artistic creations that vary widely from one another, but which all share the same purpose: to remind people of their own mortality and the punishment they will receive if they transgress the rules of their religion. Skull form watches were popular during the renaissance.’

I found it on Stephen Bogoff‘s site via Watchismo. I’d love to know who has this in their possession!

How are these for some serious cuteness overload? Posted earlier today on Design*Sponge, these adorable plants by Sian Keegan, are a treat for those with green or black thumbs.

Bon Weekend – Meanwhile on Apartment Therapy…

Two amazing spaces that I’ve had the honor to share recently!

Leila & Buff’s Beautiful Beach Abode

Loree’s Dangerously Beautiful Garden

Here’s to a safe, fabulous and inspired weekend!

Bon Weekend

I saw this amazing installation of giant fish made from discarded plastic bottles rising from the sands of Botafogo beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil last week and had to share! Hopefully I’m not the one of the last people to see this. 😉 I found these photos and info on the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) at Colossal. The photos of the fish at night are pretty spectacular.

To die for…

No, no, not the movie. However, Nicole Kidman may find these as awesome as I do!

This just in on the Design*Sponge ICFF report: these incredible brass hexagonal tables from Egg Collective. I wouldn’t kill for them but if a couple showed up at the house I wouldn’t ask questions. 😉

Sigh.

Stuart McLachlan

My love of silhouettes was fortified recently when I discovered the incredibly gorgeous paper art of Australian artist Stuart McLachlan, thanks to Pinterest. I am smitten with with his work. He also makes some pretty amazing hats. I wonder if he makes them in adult sizes?

{ I found first four larger image sizes on uponafold.com. The last image is from http://stuart-mclachlan.com. }

Love your mother

My next to last Inman Park Festival vendor shout out goes to Drea Firewalker (sadly, no website) and her garden art. We bought this bird feeder for mom and it is now about a foot and a half from the millstone pond. I snapped an update shot of it the week before last:

This eCard from Tyler made my day yesterday.

I love that boy.

Speaking of ‘Love Your Mother‘, we were treated with several rain showers throughout the day yesterday. That’s the ultimate mother loving!

I hope it was a safe and fabulous weekend for all!

Art Crush – Jennifer Trask

I’ve seen Jennifer Trask’s work before and was reacquainted with it during a search of another artist. Her work involving bone, antler, wood and pre-ban ivory is beyond my words.

Heather Jansch

A quickie post for today! A friend shared a photo of UK artist Heather Jansch‘s amazing driftwood horses and I had to pass the goodness and share them here!

Enjoy her work!
