Amy Borrell Inspiration

I spotted Amy Borrell’s work on Pinterest thanks to lovely Leslie who pins gorgeous things to her boards – you should totally follow her! I find so many pretty things from Leslie, she has a really great eye…

I’m using Pinterest under decor8, I just pinned a bunch of delightful edibles to my Yummy Things folder that you may like (to eat). I’m not a Pinterest addict yet though, but that could change very soon as I begin traveling over the next four weeks. When I’m on the road I have a bit more leisure time than I do in the office to be a pin-natic. :) But I digress… The point of this post is to spotlight the lovely illustrative work of Amy Borrell.

If you like what you see above, Amy has an online shop so you can own many of these as prints. Her work gets me in the mood for springtime! I love the things that springtime brings, don’t you?

Therese Sennerholt Prints

I spotted these graphic black and white prints today by Swedish designer Therese Sennerholt and thought you may really enjoy them – my favorite one is, “Sometimes the best moments in life are the simple ones. Like having cheese doodles and wine”. Another great one, “Always act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.” Which is so easy for us to lose track of sometimes, isn’t it?

Also, “Bad news may be good news in disguise”, how true that has been for me many times!!!

Which one do you fancy most?

Audrey Jeanne Shop

French illustrator Audrey Jeanne has the sweetest little things in her online shop that I want to point you to today. I first found her postcards a few months ago in a local shop and have been meaning to write about her ever since… These posters and cards are just so sweet, aren’t they?

Quotes Can Be Nice

I love quotes, don’t you? I find quick bites of positivity or quirk a bit uplifting — even the tongue in cheek quotes are fun because they often say what many of us lack the courage to. This is one I particular like this week because it’s so true, right!?  I thought I’d share some quotes that I’ve been collecting over the past few weeks though I have tons more pinned here although some of those are definitely cheeky and not so G rated so viewer beware! These below are tame and good thoughts so enjoy them today as you go about your business…
