Fred & Friends

October 9, 2009

Diana sent me the cutest link today to a kitchen product she thought I’d love and she was right, I do! I do! These M-cups (no not a bra!) are nesting dolls for the kitchen made to measure and boy are they cute. They’re from Fred & Friends and they accurately measure 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, 2/3, 3/4 and 1 full cup, and are made from food safe, heavy duty plastic that will last for many years to come.

I love understated goods with personality, simple designs and shapes that have just a little bit more to them always make me smile. :)

Thanks Diana for the tip, I might have missed these otherwise!

Gecko Stickers

October 9, 2009

Based in Rio, Gecko Stickers are decorative decals created by several different designers commissioned by Gecko so the selection spans many different sizes, styles and colorways that are both affordable and accessible – they ship worldwide. I don’t use a lot of wall stickers in my home, I have a simple bird on a light switch in my hallway and that’s about it for me. But I would consider adding them to my windows as a quick seasonal decoration or if I had kids, I’d allow my little ones have them around their bedroom. They are also really sweet on organizing canisters and glassware.

There are so many wall sticker designers out there and it makes me wonder, do you buy them? Where do you stick ’em? On the walls, tiles, appliances, windows, furniture, or? I’d like to try some inside the glass doors of my china cabinet, perhaps full lace sheets that are very subtle so that I can stuff more in the cabinet without anyone seeing inside. :) I know, a lazy solution, I am still procrastinating when it comes to organizing my cabinet. With family coming over tomorrow and a festival to attend on Sunday, I may have the procrastination gods on my side allowing me to get to it next week, instead. :)

But yes, back to the stickers. Do you use them and if so, where?

Kerry Lemon: Ilustrator

October 9, 2009

I’m loving the intricate drawings and sweet colors in the work of Surrey-based illustrator, Kerry Lemon. What a delicious way to start the day today, enjoying her pretty work… In addition to her illustrations for print publications and the web, she exhibits in galleries and has extensive experience teaching creative workshops and projects. Her style is so sweet and feminine, don’t you think?

I’d like to see her work on product packaging or perhaps as lining in a handbag or raincoat. Imagine opening your yellow or navy trench coat to find one of her pretty drawings inside?

If you’d like a print, please visit her shop online.

Piou Sandrine

I stumbled upon the blog and shop of Piou Sandrine in France today via Flickr and really, really enjoyed what I found! Would you like to take a peek into her world too? Oh good! Let’s look together at some pretty corners in this whimsical Paris home, I’m sure her children love having her for a mommy with all of these fun colors and patterns around!

I love all of the bright, joyful colors and the sticker on the front of her white dresser. Not to mention her gorgeous cat! Awww, so cute. I think what moves me the most though is her unique stamp on this space – it is very personal and original. It feels cozy and lived in, and like this lady really puts a lot of her creative energy into each corner. I really admire this!
