Two new patterns by Helen

A couple of gorgeous new ones by Helen Dardik, “Breakfast Tea” and “Walk in the Woods”.



Lamps with Sarajo shades

How cool is this? Lamp-in-a-box is a website where you pick the shade by an artist you like (or design your own), pick the base, and volia! you then get your lamp shipped to you (in a box). Or, you can just get the shade.

Sarajo is one of the featured artists. Below is her lampshade “alarmed birds” with a brushed nickel lamp base.
See Sarajo’s other lampshade designs here. – Julia


Linda Ketelhut’s Back to School Collection at Target

Linda writes:

“Hi Everyone,
I was at Target a few days ago and I couldn’t have been more excited when I saw that the collection of folders + notebooks I did for them are out! It’s hard to believe it’s already time to think about back to school, but I hope that these vibrant supplies make it easier!”


Mati Rose stopped by the studio!

We were so excited to have beautiful Matistop by the studio today all the way from the West Coast. Her fabulous book is selling like hotcakes on Amazon.
