I especially enjoy the photographs she’d taken for a past issue of Bust magazine showing a fun party and I liked how casual and welcoming they felt. I enjoy photos showing good times shared amongst friends, couples cooking together, mothers cuddling their young on the sofa. They are touching and you can’t help but want to cut and paste yourself right into the scene… I guess that’s precisely what a good photo should do. Please take some time this weekend to enjoy talented Anna Wolf and her incredible online portfolio. And a major bonus: She maintains a blog, too.

Today I came across the work of budding Indian photographer Purvi, also known as Mint IceTea, on Flickr. While I’m not sure if she sells her photography I felt so taken by her work that I just had to share a glimpse of it will all of you.
Beautiful work, Purvi. If she doesn’t have a shop she certainly should consider it. I’d love to see her work on my walls and really enjoy watching her grow with every new photo. So inspiring to witness an artist exploring and blossoming!

What a way to kick off a long holiday weekend! Look for me today in People magazine in their February 2009 Stylewatch issue… this is really exciting! A few months ago People asked me to be part of a select group of Style Experts they’d chosen to pull together a list of what’s hot to make The Hip List. I praised handmade as being hot and mentioned a few of my personal favorites out there. They took my list and not knowing who would make the cut, I took a deep breath this morning as I opened the issue. Ta-dah! They mentioned my top three: Etsy, DaWanda, and Boston-based Simplemente Blanco.
It’s great to be in People magazine because it is a completely new audience for me. I’m honored to be part of their panel of experts which includes: Melissa Lavigne, David Morrison, Ann Mack, Holly Brickley & Courtney Leeds, Amanda Freeman, Josh Kafka, Carolyn O’Neil, Helena Echlin, and Mia Kim.
Thanks, People mag!
