Fresh Finds from Lotta Jansdotter

Did you see some of the lovely new things from Lotta Jansdotter? Oh they are really pretty… Try to control yourself. Or not. :) I love her new coasters, potholders, and the little owl bag.

Speaking of bags, I really like her collection of them, in all shapes and sizes. I own several and they not only look great, but they last forever and seem to go with my usual spring/summer attire, which is mostly casual – skirts, flats, jeans, tees, and lots of natural fibers like cotton and linen. The muted colors, soft patterns, and great big handles on her shoulder bags really appeal to me. Then, there’s the mini ones that she creates. Isn’t that little elephant above so adorable? The little bags are perfect for tucking in some gorgeous letterpress stationery and a box of chocolates or tea for gifting a dear friend. They’re also handy to stash things in around the house, from clothespins to makeup, extra silverware (keep them inside on a peg in your pantry), etc. I can’t wait to see if she adds more to her collection this year – fingers crossed, she’ll expand her ceramics line. I’d love to see mugs, plates, and serving dishes!

    Oooh… I love the clean lines of her graphics, especially the tea towel with the cups.

    PS – I haven’t told you yet but your Rooms I *heart* is one of the most inpiring projects/groupings I’ve found online. I just LOVE looking through all the photos. Great idea!

    thank you susanna – yeah i needed a space to quickly catalog all of the images I come across and blogging everything can take a lot of time – plus I love the community aspect. thanks so much for the words of encouragement. I have to start scanning in some images to add from my personal clippings as well.

    I love the half apron with the tree. Would work well here in oregon where the tree is sort of a national symbol. Speaking of which they are covered in snow today. k
