I am totally digging these prints by Katrin Schwulst, aka Seasprayblue!

Created with ink and then digitally colored, they take you into her world where things float and color vibrates yet calms you. I’d love to live in that world!

Eva Juliet

Montrealer Eva Juliet offers prints with positive messages and beautiful graphics and illustrations. Typography is given lots of importance in them, too!

English versions also available, but obviously, I suggest the French ones! :)

Pretty & soothing!

Mostly Wanted

Oh how I love what this guy, Tom Bagshaw aka Mostly Wanted, does!

He explores mostly the female body and fashion thru his art and illustrations, as well as unique little creatures, which are usually soft and enchanting, yet strong and powerful.

A world to discover!

Kaleb Schad

Pencil, charcoal, ink and my best friend, Photoshop. Those are the ingredients needed for Kaleb Schad‘s mind to boil over with beautiful ethereal art.

Some are winderfully paired with quotes, you can totally feel (for me anyway) his graphic designer by day influence with the fonts and the sense of space in his art.

Just. Love. Eveything.

Persian Garden is a shop from Toronto that features wonderful digital illustrations by the artist, Afsaneh. Everything is delicate and feminine, detailed and colorful!

She also has a second shop, Joojoo, with polymer clay mini sculptures and jewelry, as well as a few more illustration prints. This one (below) would totally be perfect for a child’s room! SO cute!

Ordinary Sparkling Eggs

Ordinary Sparkling Eggs Breakfast

Ok, so I’m not just showing you my breafast from yesterday just to show you my breafast from yesterday. lol

Sometimes I like to do “customer appreciation pictures” to leave with my feedback of purchases on Etsy. And since I love to photograph some of my food moments and put those in my Flickr Food Set, this one was a given!

So anyway, all this to talk to you about 2 fabulous new things I ordered and received in the mail recently.

First, the “Ordinary Sparkling Moments (reflections on success and contentment)” book from Christine Mason Miller, aka SwirlyGirl.

O.M.G. I loooooove this book!!!

It is SO inspirational, motivational, beautiful, meaningful, and relaxing. Yes, relaxing!! Everytime I read a few pages, I feel so much more relaxed and positive and inspired, like it’s a magic potion or something! lol! The illustrations and collages are also wonderful!! Everything just fits, like some puzzle pieces.

And me tell you one more thing: it’s not just for the ladies! My boyfriend read a few pages and liked the words very much, so this confirms me that’s it’s pretty much a book for everybody!


Hardcover $48, Softcover $28.

Second, I had these cute ramekins custom made for me by trpottery. I used to almost never eat eggs, and I don’t know why but recently I started eating a lot more and love them! So I wanted some little ramekins to cook some slowly in the oven where the little salt and peppah just kinda melts in it and it’s yummy!

(I also ordered something else related to eggs, I am waiting for it in the mail, you’ll have to wait to know! hehe)

Also check out Tara’s other shop called SmokyPendants with plenty of wonderful smoke-fired pendants. I just love smoke-fired pottery, it just has that je-ne-sais-quoi extra!
