Artist Sharon Elphick contacted me today about the opening of her new online shop, Elphicks, where you can find a curated selection of art prints from not only Sharon but from some of her favorite artists like Charley Harper, Karin Akesson and Hazel Nicholls.
It’s nice to be nice, what a sweet print — I especially like that it appears to be on a biscuit that resembles a Bahlsen cookie. Cute!
I talked about this lady in ‘07 but I couldn’t resist posting about her again after viewing the coolest project she’d posted on Flickr recently. Adriana Bezerra, or Drika.b as her fans know her, is a handbag designer in San Francisco by way of Brazil with the most delicious handbags with her signature jute trim. Check out the little photos of her bags that she so carefully placed on a linen board as a reminder of all the bags she’s designed since launching her collection back in late ‘06. Don’t you just love this idea? I’m swooning here…
I’m a proud owner of a Drika.b bag and whenever I wear it out I always receive a ton of flattering comments about the size and shape of it — people really seem to love (and want) it where ever I go. I almost want to keep a supply in the trunk of my car and be her east coast rep or something, it’s a riot!
Don’t you really love this display board idea though? And her perfectly neat play space? Inspiring…

I love combing the pages of Bella Luce Photography… whether it’s Natasha’s Flickr photos or the lovely work in her etsy shop, I’m forever reminded of the power that nature has to transform and cause dreams to stir within our hearts…
How can one not imagine a perfect setting or the ideal afternoon when gazing upon these divine photos above?

Such a beautiful thought today from artist Dallas Shaw… You And I Both. Simple words that mean so much since we all need one another so much, often in ways we don’t even realize or appreciate fully until something happens that reminds us of our reliance. No man is an island, right?
You And I Both is a print available in several colors for $20 at Dallas Shaw’s pretty little shop. What a special gift this would make for a friend who has cheered you on, dried your tears, and held you up on so many occasions… don’t you agree?
