forget me not

I am a sucker for scarves, I have sooo many scarves in my wishlist right now it’s crazy. But, as with many things, my lack of funds means most will remain in my wishlist for a looong time. So, I do the next best thing, I share them with you. Forget Me Not creates such beautiful scarves, I can barely handle it. Also, beach towels and cushions! That owl pattern is on a scarf AND a cushion. I’m in LOVE!

Pretty much anything you present to me that incorporates triangles, I’m gonna love. So, it’s no surprise that I’m obsessing over the work of textile designer Anna Duthie. Those visualisations are so fun, they remind me of playing with paper dolls as a kid.

geometric at home

This past weekend, I received an e-mail from roche bobois letting me know that sweet reader Monica had suggested this coffee table might be right up my alley, and Monica, you are absolutely right!

I thought it’d be fun to round up a couple more geometric items for the home, I’m thinking that planter must be mine and soon. Also, I’ve never really perused Land of Nod before but there are some cute things there that even the childless can enjoy. Good to know.

Thanks Monica for thinking of me, someday, that coffee table will be mine! xo

I don’t like this: a series


illustrations by caitlyn murphy as part of her I don’t like this series

Like most people, there is nothing I appreciate more than a good sense of humor, so I was delighted to come across this awesome series of illustrations, I don’t like this by Caitlyn Murphy. I was especially drawn to the 3 illustrations above as they are things that I also dislike. I’m sorry turtlenecks, but I’ll pass.

I am obsessed with this interface design created by Emily Tu for the Robert Burns Museum in Scotland. I am really taken by those illustrations, so freakin’ cute!

adieu – potato printing


images via adieu

Nothing like seeing pictures of gorgeous prints made by potatoes (yes, potatoes!) to make me feel like I’m not using my free time wisely. This is the kind of stuff I’d love to be working on when I’m not in front of a screen.

These pretty garlands and florals from the lovely fleurlux are the sort of decor I’d love to have all over my house if I could. How pretty would one of these be above your bed or your dresser.

2012 was the year of the knit and in 2013 I hope to continue my unofficial textiles studies starting with drooling over these furry beauties. How much do you wanna bury your face or bare feet in these?

Raise your hand if you procrastinated and are doing some last-minute shopping today of all days? *Sheepishly raises both hands* Yep, I’m one of those facing the crazy crowds today, wish me luck.

On a brighter note, how cute are those clocks and that space! I’d like to imagine that if I had those clocks I’d never be late and I’d never procrastinate, but let’s face it, beautiful clocks may only distract me further.

If you celebrate, happy holidays friends, if not, hooray for the day(s) off! xo

While we are on the subject, Santa, if you do in fact read my blog, I wouldn’t mind these babies under my tree as well. Got it? Good.
