Harmonie Interieure

The Harmonie Interieure website is addictive - full of beautiful product photography and plenty of creative genius. Below: Vinyl stickers from the Ornements 2008 collection and a limited edition poster titled "Imagination is more important than knowledge".

Paper Alligator

Love these cute earth friendly canvas bags designed by Louise Cunningham, an illustrator in Glasgow, Scotland.  They are available in her Etsy shop, Paper Alligator.

Something else to add to my list of "next time I'm in Minneapolis"... visit Gallery 360 to see the works of artist Jennifer Davis.
Found via one of my favourite blogs, decor8.

Jennifer Davis also has an Etsy store and a blog.


Lovely postcards and beautiful product photography by the talented Jessica of vol25...

one of my favourites

I've always really liked the range of colours in semi-precious spinel - pinks, yellows, oranges, and browns...
(These beads are for sale here)

aesthetic apparatus

I'm loving this screenprint by Aesthetic Apparatus - the tin man hand, the little moose, the fonts and swirls... I can't wait to stop by their store front the next time I'm in Minneapolis!

paper pinhole cameras

Really? Can it be? We can make cameras out of paper that work?
Find the above camera (and others) at the Corbis Readymech website.  Each camera can be downloaded as a free pdf pattern that you print on to "several sheets of good printer paper" and then put together using an illustrated instruction guide of only 14 steps.
(The happy film canisters above are just part of the instruction guide that I especially liked.)

Above is a dreamy example of an actual picture taken with the World Pinhole Camera Day Camera, courtesy of the Corbis photo gallery.

These gorgeous prints of original paintings by Danna Ray are available in her Etsy shop Groundwork. The prints sell themselves (only $20!) but if you need more incentive, ten trees will be planted for each item purchased from her store through a clever collaboration with Trees for the Future.
