A Place For Twiggs Photography

Oh yes, what a relaxing day here on decor8 with more dreamy photography and faded pastels to enjoy… this time from A Place For Twiggs, a photography shop on Etsy based in Portugal with work that can lead you to serious daydreams and the sounds of something really laid back like Ayo music, she is a fabulous Nigerian-German singer-songwriter. Her music goes beautifully with these images. Why not listen to this song while looking at these photos below?


Thank you again Tina for the reminder, A Place For Twiggs takes me to my happy place.

79 Ideas e-Magazine

Would you like to see a lovely e-magazine called 79 Ideas that I came across today? Oh it is very sweet and has a romantic theme to it as it is centered around Valentine’s Day and contains some darling things you may like to do to celebrate love and joy in your life.

79 Ideas

Radostina Bosseva is the creative blogger behind 79 Ideas and she also happens to be a graphic designer and she takes lovely photos, too. She did a very nice job producing this and I’m so happy that she has an English issue in addition to the Bulgarian version because now so many can read it all over the world.

Things We Love At Kate Spade

I’m currently loving some of the new paper goods over at Kate Spade and I’m really liking their e-book called Things We Love At Kate Spade because it is a really sweet online book to peruse — the presentation is so inspiring!

Etsy Take Five Tuesdays

Hello friends, it’s Tuesday and time for my Etsy picks for the week. Yesterday, I had a phone interview with Good Housekeeping since they wanted to talk to me about my upcoming book and were curious as to how I find so many good shops on Etsy for this column each week (honored!). I was very flattered that the writer follows this column and knowing that inspired me to keep it going for 2011 as I toyed with the idea of discontinuing it. You can look for me in the May issue of Good Housekeeping, where I’ll share some of my favorite Etsy shops and others online that specialize in vintage finds for the home. Now onto my picks for the week. I hope that you like them!

The beautiful watercolor prints by Amber Alexander in Vermont feature whimsical animals that will no doubt captivate you.
