welcome, spring.

Spring is upon us. Since the season is all about rebirth and renewal, I think the Crackery Crockery from Ornamented Life is a fitting tribute. Each piece of discarded tableware is lovingly given new, unique life by the Danish designer. Chips and cracks are hand-filled with 24K gold, and out of the damage spring specially designed floral transfers. Love.

I seem incapable of thinking about anything that isn’t Blythe-related these days. Luckily for me, another gem arrived in the mail today. This yellow “pointy helmet” from Lunitas Knitting Shop is ridiculously adorable and makes me feel all warm and cheery.

I’m really enjoying/feeling inspired by Shaun O’Dell‘s artwork.

Vintage paper sample

Three Potato Four is a great online shop that has a really cool, very well curated mix of design-y and vintage products. On their blog, I ran across this fantastic paper sample from 1966. I love the use of color and am pretty much always a fan of wood type.

Momiji!

Maybe I’m going through a weird reclaiming-my-youth phase, but I’m kind of obsessed with Momiji Dolls. The adorable hand-painted dolls are a modern interpretaion of Japanese Kokeshi dolls, and have a slot in the bottom so you can pass notes to your friends. Each doll comes with a list of likes — Clever Clogs (on the left) likes boys who wear glasses.

This cut paper typography by Hina Aoyama is some of the best art I’ve seen in a long time. I love how delicate and intricate her work is. To view more pieces, click here.

We’ve just added some new Mother’s Day card to our Etsy shop. We’ve been having a lot of fun with hand-drawn type lately, and while there is a lot going on on the card, but we are pretty happy with the results.
