Moments of Beauty

I'm loving the atmospheric and beautiful work of photographer Annette Pehrsson, discovered through a lovely post by Victoria of sfgirlbybay. You can see more of Annette's work on welcome ghosts, her flickr site.

Jeltje Janmaat

I came across the lovely work of photographer Jeltje Janmaat on Nina's always wonderful Ninainvorm blog — and was instantly smitten. These amazing images are from Jeltje's blog, but do check out her fab portfolio here, too.

Update February 12 2010: Jeltje has requested that I remove her photographs from automatism — please follow the links above to her portfolio and blog to see her work there.

Planning on getting married? Here's some great news for you — Wedding Paper Divas is currently offering free shipping on their Thermography collection! Choose from an extensive array of designs for wedding invitations, save the date, bridal shower, thank you cards and more. Just make sure that you enter the code: FREESHIP at checkout to redeem. Shown here is the lovely Graceful Garland wedding reception card in Celery.

Christina of the lovely My Sparrow has exciting new changes for the shop coming up in February, with a new website format and new items! In the meantime there's lots of wonderful pieces to see, such as these charming Fantasy Bell Jars — perfect for displaying that small unique something (or just to admire on their own, too).

Kareem of The Suitcase has been busy as usual, creating beautiful new prints such as the one shown here, which will be available soon from Inprnt and L'Affiche Moderne. It's also a good time to visit The Suitcase — Kareem is currently offering 20% off all prints until January 31st!

Add a splash of cheerful pink to your winter wardrobe with this lovely handmade pashmina shawl! Estefania of Puerta Sur also has a sale on selected items in her shop right now, so it's a perfect time to chase away the winter blues with a lovely piece of artisanal silver jewelry — or a cosy shawl like the one shown here, all from Estefania's native Argentina.

This stunning ring by Ayse of EQArt Jewelry is hand made from sterling silver and hematite, called the "stone of mental mastery," and believed to aid clarity, balance, calm and reason. It is also said to transform negativity into love, and therefore assists in the creation of peaceful, loving relationships. A perfect gift for a loved one — or for yourself, for that matter! You'll find it here.

Aneta of Bobbin Talk is currently developing a great series of fashion and accessory design e-classes based on her soon to be published Accessory Design Textbook. The first e-class, Fundamentals of Accessory Design, starts on February 22 — find out more here.

Danielle of Stitchface has been busy making lots of new plush creatures with her new collection of antique hand tatted lace, which sounds lovely. They're sure to be as popular as her other pieces (such as the little guy shown here, the Be Mine Bear) — as shown by her recent nomination for a Poppy Award on Poppytalk! Yay Danielle!
