The fab artist Jessica Gonacha just launched a new project called Pecannoot. It’s a blog dedicated to abundance where she creates and posts illustrations on this theme and invites other artists to create images in whatever medium they choose for Pecannoot. Her aim is to create a beautiful inspirational place where people can visit to tune out the negativity in the world for a heaping scoop of positive thoughts and images. Let’s hear it for happy places!

Speaking of food inspiring room design, do you recall this post that appeared on decor8 a few years ago? It’s called I Dream of Cake where I matched cakes to some of my favorite rooms. This is one of my favorite posts on decor8, I still reference it for inspiration today.
Cherry Blossoms, a touch of black, a pop of pink, delicate china, altogether gorgeousness.
I think everyone should try this once in their life, pairing food with rooms because it’s a fun creative exercise and I’m all about getting those creative juices flowin’.
Shannon wrote in this morning, aka Aunty Cookie, and was nice enough to tell me about the new things in her shop like this fabulous hand screenprinted fabric. She told me that this pattern was inspired by all the lovely papercuts she’s been seeing produced by independent crafters online. I’m always interested in learning where ideas come from and how designers translate all that they see into a single product, it’s something that will forever fascinate me: the sheer process of it all.
This pattern is available in gray, yellow and red. The gray is my favorite, I see it on chairs in the dining room. Shannon has more fabric patterns on her site in addition to some limited edition illustrations that you may enjoy looking at today.
Thanks Shannon for the update!
