studio at home



another after

These are before and after shots of our studio at home. This is where I hope to squeeze the current paper scissors oranges or at least half of it...ok a quarter. It's a guest room for the summer but come August it will be the new paper scissors oranges or I should say paper scissors key limes......a spot, come late spring 2010, where I will have teeny, cozy art classes for children...stay tuned!

falling cloudberries

This is a beautiful cookbook by Tessa Kiros. It's called Falling Cloudberries and is a Gourmet Book Club cookbook. I have it on my bedside table...I peruse and then dream of all the yummy meals I could make. See it here.

where the wild things are

I had no idea that a major motion picture of one of my all time favorite stories for children was being made! Coming in October. Check out the trailer here. Everett, Andrew and I can hardly wait. I love the posters with the handwritten font too!

eyecandy bag

This is what the BLUEQ says about this fun grocery bag:

"Collage artist Colin Johnson made this amazing eyecandy bag a reality. The colors pop and there is always something new hidden in there. A beauty to behold. Made with 95% recycled woven polypropylene. 15.75"w x 15.35"h x 5.9"d".

I couldn't resist at Whole Foods. Makes the big grocery shop more fun. You can buy one here.

hugo guinness

I popped in the Crew Cuts for kids store today and was really very impressed with the way the store is styled. The window is so simple...Black paper with fluorescent masking tape sea life. Inside I fell in love with the simple pieces of art hanging in the boys' section in random vintage frames. The lovely sales woman told me they are linoleum cut prints by Hugo Guinness. I would love a wall full of them. Check them out here.
