Simple Pleasures

Picnics, especially on a leisurely summer afternoon, with good company, plenty of good food and a book or a game on hand, too. Lovely photograph by Samantha Lamb, via weheartit.

Complex Geometries

Love these pieces by Complex Geometries, discovered via the always wonderful simplyolive. Deceptively simple, but with such an elegant purity of form.

Genevieve of Holme has something new at her shop, a little different than the usual mix of awesome vintage clothing — the first in a cool new series of paperworks. It's a wall sized photocopy print of a disappearing pier, made from a found image. Available for $20, in a limited edition of 20, it's great affordable art. But if you'd rather just shop for clothes, there's even more good news — Genevieve says she'll be adding a sale section soon, too!

Rachael of Number Eight has a wonderful new series of art dolls in her shop, all made from reclaimed antique materials and designed for display. Shown here is a Victorian bisque doll bust with real glass brown eyes and its original paint, embellished by Rachael with two beauty marks, a gorgeous pink wool wig, a blue birdcage veil, a vintage flower with vintage Czech glass bead center and a silver thread choker. So pretty and charming!

Danielle of the always charming Stitchface shop has exciting news — she was recently honoured as a Featured Seller on Etsy! Yay! Go read her fantastic interview — she's a truly fun and lovely person as well as being so talented and creative. Be sure to visit her shop to see what's new there, too!
