Hindsvik

Need a shop to stalk for awesome, cool and did I say awesome (!?) vintage home finds? If you don’t know Hindsvik yet, where the heck have you been?!

I always want everything there, and the shop is updated with new stock very often! Every piece is like a treasure, and you can clearly see they choose everything carefully with love and care over there!

Also, for Quebec and Ontario fans, note that there is a free shipping promotion in September for you for orders over $100! YAY!

Now, go crazy ;)

Vessels

Medium Leather Bin by Gildem.

I’ve found some fabulous vessels recently, have to share them!!

Vessels can save our spaces… Make your room pretty when actually you can just put what’s lying around the house in them (balls of yarn, branches, rocks, jewels, fruit!). Pratical & pretty :)

Leave No Rim, Sugah

Silhouette Wood Coasters by Peppersprouts.

Have you noticed there’s always a don’t-leave-a-rim scene in most ongoing TV Shows? This weekend I was watching my Sex And The City DVDs (I gots the soft furry pink collection box set, love it!) and there it was. And then I caught a rerun of Friends, and there it was again.

This is very important. Get coasters, peeps! lol :)

New Stuff at Nea!

I’ve been working a lot since I started doing crafts full-time! I’ve had consignment requests and a craft fair coming up in October and just preparing for a hopefully very busy Holiday season! :)

I launched some new Wall Wear pieces in my Neawear shop a few weeks ago and just realized they were not shown yet on my own blog! Here they are!

I also worked on some new necklaces the past few days and weeks! I keep making necklaces these past weeks, like there is almost no place for earrings in my head right now!

Actually, it used to be the opposite! lol! I’ll get back to earrings soon, I promise :)


And for the crafters out there, I listed new supplies in my NeaBlossoms shop, mostly czech glass beads, but other great ones too! Need some? :)

Stem Vases

Karin Eriksson is one of those artists that you wish you could buy everything from!

Her pure and simple visual designs compliment perfectly her stunning ceramics (what about those vases, right!? Awesomeness!). Working from her studio in Stockholm (Sweden), she is one to always have in mind because her work goes by fast once listed in her Etsy shop! There you’ll also find decorative pebbles and candle holders to enhance your home!

Spoon Me

My latest obsession: spoons!

Yeah, I still get those obsessions, every week is different and subjects vary a lot! lol

Here are Caroline Gomez‘s porcelain spoons, the ones who actually started my interest in spoons weeks ago! This French artist does not currently sell online, but she totally should think seriously about it! I’m a taker, and after being featured on many design blogs (including the fab and o-so-big Design*Sponge!) in the past weeks, I’m sure she would have many more buyers than just myself! Follow her blog, maybe she’ll let us buy her work shortly, we never know! :)

Next up is Manitoba’s woodworking artist Barry Lee Loewen, aka canadianwoodcrafts on Etsy, who makes wonderful “Baby’s first spoons”, but who am I kidding!? My little jam jars NEED these spoons! lol

Plus, Barry is really a great person, super helpful and creative! I know this because I’ve worked with him on custom wooden buttons for my jewelry and he had plenty of great ideas and was a real sweetie! Thanks again Barry!

Off to Peek Keep for some awesome awesome and simplistic porcelain spoons from Toronto’s Coe & Waito. The purity of the shapes are just stunning, I’m litteraly craving for one! Coe & Waito just totally rocks tha house people, they have been featured on so many blogs for all they housewares, I can’t even make a list! I even talked about them before back in September

Peek Keep also holds many Coe & Waito items, search for them! :)

Last but not least, if you love spoons but don’t “need” some, consider this scented oil diffuser made with spoon and fork, from Toronto’s SixthandElm on Etsy! Ingenious, stylish and practical! Loves it! :)

Want more spoons? Check out the Spoon Group on Flickr!!

Mud Familly

Boy, this is an almost all Canadian post…!

This was not planned at all, but I guess the spoon love thing may be a Canadian thing also?! lol

Modernize your walls with porcelain

How lovely!

OneBlackBird‘s work has always rocked my world (after making sure, I can’t believe I never talked about her on the blog before! Am I out of my mind?!?). But these “porcelain tags” are just cute as can be! I would totally see them on any wall of every room I have ever seen! lol

Check out her entire shop, just wonderful work all around!
