Jennifer Murphy Bears & Things

April 30, 2009

The name Jennifer Murphy just popped into my mind and so I decided to check in on her and found out that she’s on Etsy now too! Wow, I can’t believe it as her things are sold in lots of gift shops which is how I first found her work. She makes all these sweet things using little handmade animals, like cake toppers and pretty little things to place around the home.

I really like the borders and things that she adds to embellish the images on her blog.

I found her inspirational blog, where I came across this photo of her studio though it looks like she is relocating so perhaps she’ll post her new studio after she moves and sets everything up. I love gazing into the creative spots of others!

Meyer Lavigne Design

April 30, 2009

Rainy Days is a new collection of porcelain by Copenhagen-based design studio Meyer Lavigne. Kristine Meyer and Sabine Lavigne graduated from Denmark’s School of Design and together they create ceramics with stories about the weather — storms, rain and quiet gray cities. In addition to ceramics, you can also find them designing cushions and bedding.

I found them via BoligLiv magazine and was quite surprised to learn that they have an Etsy store. I love how accessible their work is to all! Yay!

Kristine and Sabine share a blog that I enjoyed browsing this afternoon with my tea. I found some great new designers in Europe as a result like fashion designer Anna Gulmann and photographer Johan Rosenmunthe, who took the photo above featuring Kristine and Sabine seated upon their vases. More goodness to bookmark!

Back on Thursday!

April 27, 2009

Hello my dear blog readers! I will be laying low for the next several days as I injured myself over the weekend and currently am unable to walk due to a torn ligament. My doctor wants me to stay offline as much as possible and rest, especially since I have a lot going on in May and need to recover as quickly as I can. I’ll be back with some light posting on Thursday and Friday. See you in a few days…
