Last week Nina told me about the handiwork of her friend and designer Ingrid Jansen and her company, Wood & Wool Stool in the Netherlands. She pointed me over to her Flickr photos and I noticed there that she also has an etsy shop. Wow! Such lovely vignettes, I love how well edited this space is — she choose pieces that really stand out and make a statement. And her work — well, it’s visually stunning and a lovely way to blend old with new in a modern way. The Dutch do this so well, don’t they? Have a peek below… you can view more beautiful images here.
Thank you Nina for sharing! And if you’d like to learn more about Ingrid and her work, you may visit Nina’s blog since she has a great interview posted there with her. Wait until you see where she works part-time, wow!

I recently had a chat with talented Tanya Whelan of Grand Revival Designs, a designer of fabric and sewing patterns living in Belgium, about her new collection of fabric due out this Fall from Free Spirit. After catching a peek I couldn’t help but fall in love. And so here I am, sharing a glimpse of what Tanya has in store for us. She was so nice to send in such wonderful photos (most just shot over the weekend) to share on decor8 today. This new colorful line is called Dolce and you can watch her blog or the Fat Quarter Shop for updates on the exact launch date in both the U.S. and abroad.
Thank you Tanya for sharing these views today!
Psst: You can also send an email to kimberly AT fatquartershop DOT com to receive notification when these fabrics become available to purchase.

After Leslie’s Color Me Pretty post yesterday, I’ve received many questions about how one can find and order Japanese stationery and rubber stamps online. I know there are some great Japanese shops I’ve referenced here in the past, but that was awhile ago so I think I’ll round up just a few of my favorite stores today, some I’ve shopped and had a perfect transaction every time.
Ginko Papers — Lovely owners, they’ve sourced Japan and pulled together a curated selection in their online shop. I ordered masking tape from them and some other paper products and the transaction and products were lovely!
Super Buzzy – Japanese fabric and papers. Weeee!
Fabric Tales – Fabrics and more.
This and That from Japan – Great source for everything crafty!
Karaku – This has long been my secret source but I’ve decided to share… I’ve been a total shopaholic from this store in the past. Great things. I have rubber stamps, fabric stamp pads, cotton tape, fabrics and more from this seller and have ordered way too many times to confess the exact number. But I heart Karaku. :)
3point5dollars – Another secret source of mine. Shhhh.
Do you have any sources to supply with sites in English? Please share your links if you’d like, we’d all really appreciate it! :)
