Limescreen (etsy score!)

I really like this silkscreened poster from Limescreen, the clean graphics, very few colors, it has a great seasonal look to it, don’t you think? And for $23, I think it would look really great if you have it framed and then mix it into the art in your home for fresh modern twist. Each poster is signed and numbered by the artist, Maarit from Finland. Only 3 left in stock, hurry!

Dinner-Ware (Napkin Rings + Things!)

These porcelain napkin rings from dinner-ware are exactly what I’ve been looking for to dress up my table yet still keeping things somewhat casual for the day-to-day. How about you? These are available in six styles (mod dot, sunburst, flowers, alphabet, star flowers, pinwheel) and look good either as a set or if you choose, you can mix and match ‘em. I love these birch cork coasters, too.

Mathieu Challi?res (France)


These are so sweet I had to share them with you today if you’ve missed them elsewhere. I spotted the Mathieu Challi?res bird pendant in the November issue of Living Etc and also over at Lena’s blog. When I searched their website, I found a few other faves, especially the apple light. Aren’t they all so appealing, in a kitschy cute way?

On a tight budget? I wonder how DIY friendly these would be with a little wire from your local home store, a light kit from IKEA, and a visit to the local craft store for birds or fruit?

hmmm.

coffee + cre8tive {nov 20 ’06}


Like most of you, I regularly look to fashion for inspiration, and I’m particularly drawn to silkscreened graphics on tees, especially if they contain words other than my native English, like German, Swedish, Japanese – languages that have always fascinated me. Adds a bit of mystery I think, because not everyone knows what your shirt is telling them, which is great for starting conversations. I also love seeing fashion images shot in either overly stylish, surreal, period, natural, or in this case today, totally kitschy home sets. That is why I’ve selected German fashion designer Lotte Voss as inspiration for today. I love the tiny floral wallpaper and the soft hues, very light and fluttery, combined with the modern graphic tees in German. You can shop for Lotte’s designs (not all but some) here. I’d love too see these tees transformed into sheer panels for the windows in lilac or cream. Oh that would be pretty I think, don’t you?
