hearts to house

sweet sassy, was I ever pleased with my mail today. this is what I got! Ginger Diamond... hahaha sweet.

I'm a newbie to House Industries, they are based in Yorlyn, Deleware... and if I were to compare them it would be to Canada's Veer.

anyways, anyways... I have no clue how I heard of them, probably from another blogger (so again, my apologies for the mis-credit), but it was this that drew me in... I want it so bad! but I don't even want to imagine the shipping on this beautiful piece of work!

right, so from what little I know about House, they are a super studio of lettering. and we know how much I adore type! you MUST check out their case studies, absolutely beautiful type. stunning. stunning work.

thanks House! I can't wait to receive more newsletters.

hearts to rosa loves

rosa loves, yes love is in the air. this lovely company is all about awareness... read some of their stories and support a cause with a rad t-shirt! I'm so pro education, especially when it comes to poverty struck countries and I'd like to support armonia... sweet armonia. this story has made me so thankful for getting help with my education and having a strong, healthy family. I'm forever grateful and I appreciate sites like this so much! thank you mike and chris from rosa loves.

oh and like so many of us, I've misplaced the blog that I found this company, so my apologies for the missing credit.

joyeux vendredi

while doing some reading on my favorite planet saving blog, TreeHugger, I came across a post on my favorite animal... the panda... and guess what? 4 cubs were born in 14 hours! hooray! such a good thing for the cuddly creatures who would rather roll around and eat than mate. such cuties!

this got me thinking... my childhood teddy was a panda named butterball. and he's MISSING! after reading this article I went on a house hunt for him and I can't find him anywhere :( I'm going to keep looking for my missing mate, cross your fingers that I find my little cuddly cub.

happy friday friends!

hearts to Jen Stark

now this is why I have a love affair with paper... Jen Stark, paper artist extraordinaire is simply magnificent. just check out her paper sculptures. stunning. mind boggling that it's paper!

here is my favorite drawing from her... definitely reflective of her style. so intricate and detailed. I can stare at this for hours and possibly be taken to wonderland.

for the love of nature

I do forget how I came across this intrinsic artist, Patrick Dougherty but I thought about him today as I lay curled up on the couch with a silly cold and a kleenex box. I could get lost in his work. and I can't wait to someday see and touch them for myself. it's like living in a fantasy.
