I’m a very satisfied Sugar Loop customer, her work is so pretty and affordable. Framed, it makes the perfect gift. The latest creation from Bernadette Sipkes’ New Zealand studio is this gocco/serigraph print in metallic gold ink, a limited edition of only 82 (hurry, only a few are left!). You really can’t go wrong for $10.- USD. Other designs are available right here. Enjoy!

Lovely graphical prints, displaying an almost disaplined chaos of beauty, from etsy seller Creo Ingero. Amazing color combos and patterns, joyous and some, explosive, all very affordable. So many good finds on etsy… It just keeps getting better all the time.
Suzanna at Binth sent over two of their latest limited edition prints last week, the inks are green and Binth brown (black-brown). The first is “Fed on Apples” and the second, “Awaiting Spring“, which is exactly how I’ve been feeling lately… Patiently awaiting! This is a fantastic print, I like how the girl is looking at us, almost like we had crept up behind her and snapped her picture. We intruded her knitting space, there in the field, with her little pup. Excellect capture of emotions in a screenprint, I think.
I’m heading out for the weekend, so I’ll leave you with the touching photography of Hope Harris, referred to me by Maryam (Thanks, M!). From cats to gorgeous pink blooms, there’s a certain sensitivity behind the lens that comes through in each image. I can tell that Hope sees beyond the surface, which is why her photographs stir such emotion. Hope captivates the honesty and down-to-earth beauty that I find so attractive in the natural world around me. A flower doesn’t consider what it will wear. A bird doesn’t gaze into a mirror to check that it’s feathers are in order. This is the raw beauty that draws so many of us in because outside of nature, only children seem to have this endearing quality for a limited time. We all grow up, primp, gaze, and worry about wrinkles and butt size. We buy expensive shoes and hope someone notices them. Nature never worries, and to me, that is why a fallen petal or the fluttering wings of a hummingbird delights. It’s genuine. It’s real. Unedited. Unplanned. Now that is a thing of beauty.
I fell in love with this kitty image, a Scottish Fold, my favorite breed. Here are a few additional beauties from the talented Ms. Harris. All photographs can be purchased on her website.
