Lisa Jones Studio

Influenced largely by mid century design illustration, Scandinavian ceramics, the kitschy 1980s and 1970s textiles, Lisa Jones is one great illustrator. Have you heard of this London-based talent before? If not, you’ll want to visit her website, Lisa Jones Studio, to preview her work which ranges from cards to tea towels, books and prints.

Lisa ships worldwide if you worry, and her shipping prices are affordable to the states and she accepts Paypal – even more reason to love her! Here is a preview of the cuteness that is Lisa Jones.

Let me guess, you have your eye on that blue house print and the pink hearts in a jar card too? Or? :)

Love, Ink + Wit

Tara just rolled out the most adorable letterpress “love” cards, surely a nice way to kick off a new week as the idea of love certainly fills one with hope and new possibilities. Tara Hogan, designer and founder of INK + WIT, has such great taste and I appreciate her aesthetic because she always knows exactly when to pull back and edit her work so that the finished product never feels cluttered or careless. Aren’t these cards perfect for expressing love to someone whom you hold dear?

INK + WIT

Speaking of love, I had the pleasure of watching Miss Potter and Coco Avant Chanel last night as I was home alone and in need of some me time and oh… what powerful, motivating films! I loved learning more about the beginnings of two famous woman, one an author and another a fashion designer, because both women displayed true gumption and a moral certainty that they possessed talent and would do something with it despite the roadblocks and challenges involved. And both succeeded to not only reach their own expectations but to exceed them. What nice thoughts to take into a Monday morning and a new week, so I thought that I would share them with you. If you’ve not viewed one or both of these films I encourage you to do so as I cannot think of any woman (or man) who would not take away something positive from them. I’ve included links to the trailers of both films above so be sure to view them — I could live in both of these movies as the set design and locations were sublime. Did you see either of these films? Thoughts?

Happy Monday — I will return shortly with some inspiration for you to enjoy.

Linda & Harriett

A new year means new stationery! I usually freshen up my card file around this time because I like to keep cards on hand for spontaneous giving that feel current. Plus paper always inspires me and in January and February with a mostly gray and white palette outdoors I find that I really need a little color inspiration in my life!

Linda & Harriett is no stranger to the blog world but I haven’t checked them out in awhile and so this morning when I popped over to their site I found lots of things that I’d like to order. I like their simple, modern letterpress greetings and note cards along with their gift tags and note pads. While I love the chevron cards, I find myself gravitating to these letterpress chandelier cards available in gray, pink and green. They’d look really sweet framed for a little color and pattern, too!

Bailey Doesn’t Bark

I received news this week from Bailey Doesn’t Bark that Re Jin Lee, founder and designer, has decided to branch out from tableware design to include home accessories, stationery and jewelry. Yay! Congratulations to Re Jin and her team! Using 100% recycled, reusable or biodegradable elements in her lines and packaging, Bailey Doesn’t Bark is committed to eco-friendly design in addition to producing beautiful things with purpose.

Bailey Doesn't Bark

“To keep an eye on quality and costs, she prefers to apply and fire decals on her porcelain pieces and package her products in-house. Re Jin not only wants to creatively inspire with the new pieces she’s been developing this year, but also hopes to inspire with the principals she’s infused in the production.”

I love all of these beautiful things, great work Re Jin! Her tea bag mugs, plates with gold accents, and her cards are beautiful – love how they shimmer!

You can find her latest collection here and also live at the Union Square Holiday Market in New York City between November 25 to December 24, 2009.
