I saw this sweet shop featured earlier today over at the lovely Kind Over Matter blog and had to share… especially since I love bright uplifting messages as prints. The Happiness Is Handmade (so true!) print shown below along with all the others are from the Erin Jane Shop. Many more prints are available so you’ll have to visit her shop to see them all…
Illustrator Erin McNulty lives in Louisiana and maintains a blog in addition to her shop where she shares her latest work and inspirations. I love the green and white teapot above, very Kate Spade!

I’ve been wanting to talk about my love for the very intricate work of Claire Coles for ages, but she was on so many blogs for so long that I thought I’d wait until the excitement settled before showing her work here. I was peeking in on her website this morning and came across new photos of her work – from bespoke stitched wallpaper to ceramics, prints and brooches Claire has been keeping busy! Aren’t these things just so beautiful?
Her fresh approach to wallpaper design combines vintage wallpapers stitched together to form beautiful things like birds, flowers and furniture and because her work is custom, clients can specify pattern, dimension and color. Some of her most recent commissions include wallpaper designs for Ted Baker and Oasis and textile designs for Anthropologie. Gorgeous!

I wrote all about Wingbug Wallpaper this morning over at Real Simple and I’ve included the price per roll so please check out that post for the details… but I have to give you a glimpse of how pretty these are.
Wow, right?! My favorite pattern is the Polypodium, in any color really, but the grayish/linen is my favorite I think. I want so badly to buy a few rolls and use it in either my kitchen or office when I move. It’s so clean and modern, understated, yet the pattern is “there” you know so it gives the wall a little interest. I can’t stop thinking about this wallpaper and how much I love it!
